What?!? I thought that if you fell off your boat, a bunch of dolphins would come and swim you to shore. No?

No joke, they apparently kill more people in Africa than any other safari "Hey look at that!" animal.

They kill more people in the world every year than any other animal except the mosqito.

Highly questionable. Since hippos don't eat their victims, every one of them is accounted for. Many victims of large predators--lions, leopards, hyenas, crocodiles--are totally consumed and simply "disappear."

I gather in the past few decades many thousands of luckless Africans have been eaten by lions while attempting to cross from Mozambique or Zimbabwe into South Africa. Most have simply vanished, with only the odd tennis shoe left behind as a pathetic memento of their existence.

Fair enough. I was just repeating something I have read. In any case, they are at least dangerous and don't actually do ballet, so if you see one, don't ask.

What about a Sumo Wrestler vs an Orangutan

Sumo "champ"??? laughable. Champ of Halo2 maybe.

But even Akebono probably couldn't budge that Orangutan... though I'd like to see him try.

I think that is a female too.

The crocodile thing is particularly disconcerting. The accounts I've read are literally one second you're there, the next you're gone.

The cape buffalo also is often rated as one of Africa's most dangerous, and I've read that they will actually lie in ambush for hunters (of course, when you're discussing a group of animals that includes lions, crocodiles, tigers, hippos, and the like, "most dangerous" becomes a relative term).

I remember watching a documentary featuring Robin Williams about dolphins or something, and they said that Dolphins are one of the few marine animals that have sex for pleasure. Knowing that, I'd be afraid of them getting 'too friendly' with me. For more information on this, consult the Church of Whale Penis at http://whalepenis.org/

dolphins are also known for rape- not uncommon for groups of male dolphins to gang rape female dolphins.

They should be tasered.

Oh, not necessarily. Here's a horrifying story that was told by one of the men involved to a friend of mine: A hunting party was standing on the bank of an African river conversing with each other when suddenly they heard a voice calling to them from help from beneath the riverbank. It turns out that it was an African native who had been taken by a man-eating crocodile. The croc has stuffed him, still alive, into a food cache the croc had excavated under the riverbank. The poor fellow was thrust into the cave, which already contained two decomposing human bodies, but enough of it was above the water level that he had air to breathe. He had lost an arm in the croc's attack, so he was unable to escape on his own.

Anyway, the hunters rescued him, and I guess he survived. One would have to wonder about his sanity, though. Being stuffed for hours, seriously injured, into a black hole with two decomposing human bodies while waiting for a pitiless carnivorous monster to return and devour you would be enough to inflict a helluva case of post-traumatic stress on the strongest of spirits, I should think.
