Before you go ‘Goo-goo Gaga’, if you happen to meet these animals in real, make sure you admire a few of them from miles away!

This old saying holds true when you hear about some adorably cute animals that are equally dangerous. Let's find out which animal is a dangerous character hiding behind a cute appearance.
Looks are often deceiving
Just look at those gentle eyes and cuddly appearances. Slow Loris is, however, no joke as it is a highly venomous animal. If it feels threatened, it won’t waste any time and mix its venom in its saliva and fur to harm the potential predator.

Polar bears are no cuddly teddy bears. They are vicious carnivores which will stalk and kill humans. The good news is they live in an icy land where encounters with humans are quite a rare occurrence.

Look at those cute puppy eyes. These ‘ocean puppies’ are not animals to play with. Don't dare to go near the adult leopard seals as they are known to be human killers.

Raccoons often reach human homes scavenging for food. They may sound fun, but they can spread leptospirosis, tularemia, toxocariasis, rabies and mites. It's not worth if you don’t know if a raccoon you come in contact with, is infectious or not.
The wolverine is just as dangerous as the Wolverine from X-Men. They are cute animals that can kill you due to their ferocious nature. They will hunt down anything, even humans if needed.
Chimps hug and love humans in many animal documentaries. However, they are highly dangerous creatures with violence a part of their daily life. If you are no expert on chimpanzee behavior, stay away from them.
They are one of the few mammals who lay eggs, but also one of the few who is venomous. The male platypus can sting a venom that feels like a hundred of hornet stings.

Unbelievable for many to picture the graceful swan is a dangerous creature. These highly muscular birds won’t shy away from attacking anyone they perceive to be a danger.
We all love cute panda videos shared on social media. These herbivores have a strong bite. If they attack humans out of fright or aggression, they cause severe puncture wounds that can be deadly at times.
It is surprising to see koalas appear in pictures of cute animals that could kill you. These pretty creatures may not be able to kill you, but have a strong and intense jaw bite that will cause significant damage.
Dingoes are dog-like animals which appear cute and tamable. However, keep in mind they are wild animals which can be very aggressive and won’t shy away from biting humans. Keep away from this cute pack if you love life.
Dog is man’s best friend. It is also a fact that dogs can attack humans and infect them with rabies. There are many cases where packs of dogs have managed to kill adults as well as kids in a frenzy.
Most of these animals should be admired from far. If you are not sure about their nature it is best to avoid them. Call experts in case you feel they need help before you jump the bandwagon without experience.
