And yet nothing is more dangerous than humankind.

Google up "megafauna". (I recommend the Irish elk for sheer impressiveness.) Our ancestors used to have to share space with giant versions of all kinds of critters that are alive today. ... And those giant critters are now extinct. There is a direct correlation between the spread of humankind and the destruction of those species.

Oh wow. What's the story behind that. When did it happen?

Interesting. Some of the animals remind me of the recently extinct Tasmanian Tiger.

I know you can't swim in most bodies of water (man-made or natural) because of these guys.

I've had encounters with black bears and mountain lions and they were far less scary that many people I've met. An animal's motivations are easy to understand. A human's? Not so much.

I'm very interested in this topic! I love maneater videos n' stuff! That's why I like dinosaurs so much!

That creature is called a Thylacine, I know a lot about that creature, they have videos of that creature, it could very well still be alive... Somewhere.

Aye, a black bear or mountain lion isn't really a threat to a grown man.

If a grizzly bear managed to sneak into camp, it would certainly be a threat. We can't do much against a grizzly if we don't have a decent weapon and some room, or at least an extra guy.

The real maneaters, of course, are more along the lines of the leopard of Rudruprayag and such. The big cats that learn enough about hunting humans to specialize in it. They're just a bit too smart and tend to catch people when they're alone and unawares, avoiding humans that are grouped up, and even understanding when a human is armed and dangerous.

But that kind of creature doesn't really exist anymore. The way big cats thrive is that one of their kind figures out how to hunt a prey and gets good at it... and if she's very good, she can feed a lot of cubs off it and teach them the same skills. Since we destroy big cats that figure out how to hunt us effectively, the knowledge of hunting us never really gets going through generations. Once upon a time, there were probably thousands of leopards armed with even more knowledge of humans than the leopard of Rudruprayag.

But aside from leopards, tigers, wolves, hyenas, and such, who have the potential to learn to hunt humans, most threats equate to "avoid stepping on them so you don't get bit".

You mean you watch these videos regularly? I was watching one last night of a man meeting his end to a pack of lions. It was shocking.

Well recently a man who did documentaries of bears was killed along with his girlfriend and both were eaten. The bear actually ran up into their tent and did the deed.

The same thing happened with a saltwater croc. It was looking at a group of people as they camped by the lake. Then in the dead of night crawled up into the tent grabbed one and tried to drag them into lake before being killed.

As for mountain lions. I remember hearing stories of grown men being killed and dragged up rocky trails to be eaten by a single cat. After seeing how easily they can dispatch someone I don't think most people could put up a fight. We just aren't equipped to fight back.
