2. Salt Water Crocodile -

Everyone knows crocodiles are horrendously ugly, man-killing beasts, but what you may not know is that nearly every decade a croc is captured somewhere in the world that shatters previous size records. Most recently in Bunawan township in the Philippines, a TWENTY-ONE FOOT LONG croc was apprehended which was said to be responsible for a spate of disappearances of children and local fisherman. Locals even reported seeing it kill a FREAKING WATER BUFFALO! The 2,370 pound monster is far and away the largest to have been taken alive, and that's 2,370 more pounds of crocodile than we ever want to deal with.
