Submerged crocodile in Indonesia.
The world is obsessed with sharks. Just look at the popularity of horror flicks like Jaws and the less critically-acclaimed but surprisingly popular movie, Sharknado.
But when Bill Gates posted an infographic ranking the world's deadliest animals to his blog in 2014, one statistic really caught our eye: Crocodiles are 100 times deadlier than sharks.
Numbers of fatal encounters with wildlife are extremely hard to tabulate, given that most places have inadequate reporting. But according to wildlife ecologist James Perran Ross of the University of Florida, officials estimate that crocs kill about 1,000 people per year — 100 times more than the 10 people sharks kill per year.
