Sometimes when we think of certain animals as “cute” we don’t realise that they are actually tricking us to buy them food! In some cases, you become the food. Here are some animals that you would want to stay clear of, no matter how huggable they look in these pictures!

1. The Hippopotamus.

Wait, What?

Hippos are very aggressive and territorial animals. DreamWorks has done such a fantastic job in attracting everyone to adore a dangerous animal like the hippo. They are known to kill hundreds of humans every year and are very fast despite their weight and size.

2. The Dingo.

So Cute!

The dingo is a breed of the wild dog mainly found in Australia.

Wait, What?

The phrase “The Dingo ate my baby” originated in 1980 when a nine-week old Australian baby girl, Azaria Chamberlain, had disappeared during a family vacation and her parents claimed that the dingo had eaten their baby. Although this has never been proved, it is widely believed that dingos eat babies. *gross*

3. Swan.

So Cute!

Swans are one of the most graceful animals. They are have this lovely curve to their neck that forms a heart when they snuggle with their mates, who btw they are extremely loyal to.

Wait, What?

They are aggressive as hell. Swans try to defend their territory by reacting in an aggressive manner, especially when defending their nest.

4. Chimpanzee.

So Cute!

Just like human beings, chimps live in social communities. They like to flash a very toothy smile when they see cameras, they know how to pucker their lips to make a pout and they can make the funniest fart noises.

Wait, What?

Adult male chimpanzees can be very aggressive. They are known to kill other chimps and humans too!

5. Polar Bear.

Polar bears are the cutest and cuddliest bears. Here are 10 Fun Facts I read about Polar Bears.

Wait, What?

Humans are the only species that are capable of hunting polar bears, but there have been instances where polar bears have proven to be extremely powerful predators and killed humans. They mainly feast on seals.
