Don’t be fooled by those big eyes, as the saliva of Slow Loris can do some damage. These creatures’ saliva is venomous and can poison you minutes after contact. So it’s better to just look at these critters from a distance instead of attempting to pet them.
These cute creatures may seem like they want to hug you but in reality, they will slap you if you get too close. The Leopard Seal is ten feet long and can get aggressive when a perceived threat comes too close. So it’s best to just buy a stuffed toy version of this tough animal.
This furry animal isn’t as dangerous as the other animals on this list, but the viruses it carries is. Since raccoons like to eat trash they can carry tularemia, leptospirosis, toxocariasis, and may more. So it’s best to stay away from this furry animal.
