Baboons roam the plains of Africa and are regarded by their peers as fierce predators and difficult prey. Known for their territorial behavior, tribes of Baboons will often wage war over mating rights and alpha males are known for their reigning brutality.

4. Komodo dragon
Komodo dragons are the largest lizards on earth, growing up to 10 feet in length! With a venomous bite and keen hunting abilities, these Lizards reign supreme in the Indonesian Islands. They ambush and kill birds, mammals, reptiles, and fish. They have even been known to attack humans and sometimes dig up human graves and eat corpses for dinner!
Jaguars are feared across South America for their hunting prowess. They have been known to hunt close to 90 different species and will kill their prey by biting the throat or the skull. Rather than chase their food, Jaguars will stalk their prey and strike when the moment is right. As an apex predator, no other animals even try to hunt Jaguars.
These massive mammals inhabit sub-Sahara Africa and are formidable opponents to other large species such as lions, bulls and even crocodiles. Though they mainly eat plants, hippos are known for their bad tempers and aggression. Living mostly in water, they will fight anything that threatens their territory, and have been know to attack boats full of humans!
1. Saltwater Crocodiles
With an average size of 17 feet and weighing over 2,000 pounds they are the largest of all living reptiles. As an apex predator, a stroll down the river is like browsing the buffet line for these crocs. With brute strength and agile quickness, they ambush and kill any kind of prey. They are even known for killing humans who venture into their territory and people are well advised to always avoid these ferocious reptiles.
