There are some mammals who may not look deadly, but they are actually considered to be the deadliest mammals in this world right now. The polar bear is one prime example. It may look cute and cuddly, but it will have the ability to kill very easily. Another deadly mammal is the hippopotamus. They may look really cute even when they are large.

People may want to get a closer look, and they end up getting killed. About 500 people in Africa are killed every year because Hippos are aggressive creatures. They also have sharp teeth that would have the ability to rip meat easily into shreds. The Bison is also considered to be a dead animal that you do not want to meet in the forest.
