Hippopotamus

The Most Human-Killing Organism in The World

Animals that have killed unexpectedly many humans

The animal that killed the most humans in Africa is the hippopotamus.

Frighteningly, about 3,000 people are killed by hippos each year.

Do you think the hippopotamus is a slow-moving, mild-mannered animal?

If so, you may be in danger when in Africa.

Adult hippos weigh more than 2 tons and sometimes run at 40 km / h.

There are various ferocious animals in the world.

Among them, the hippopotamus is said to be a particularly dangerous creature.

By the way, according to WHO research, the most human-killing organism in the world is mosquitoes.

Mosquitoes can carry terrifying infectious diseases such as “malaria,” “dengue fever,” and “Zika fever.”

Unfortunately, hundreds of thousands of people die each year from these infections.
