Suggest that you alter the title to 'Dangerous animals' - humans are evil, animals are not

Sentient animals are prone to be evil. Some of the creatures referenced are sentient.

...Even more so for sapient animals.

The most evil and dangerous animal is by far the human animal.

Maybe a bit of a hyperbolic example but:

Anthony Hopkins in The Silence of the Lambs (1991)

A more realistic example

David Bamber in Valkyrie (2008)

Evil for sure, but dangerous? Dangerous to whom? Human beings are rather helpless without their tools, techniques, knowledge and sophisticated training. For the most part, humans can only overpower animals (or fellow humans) that are smaller and slower than them, by biting or strangling them. However, there are as we very well know, some things special about human beings, including how the style of their killing or destroying may involve trying to conceal the fact that they've done so. We're the only species that has members who will stalk, ambush and kill fellow members, on top of covering it up, lying about not knowing anything about what transpired, framing somebody or finding a scapegoat.  I don't how torture and indoctrination factor into this, as those are sophisticated activities, possibly bred of thousands of years of training, experimenting, teaching, copying, combining and studious inquiry. Typically, there is some level of sophistication associated with the most severe of evils. Interestingly, that notion is very befitting of characters whose pictures are shown above. Adolf Hitler, in particular, a very skilled deceiver no doubt, probably was no genius, but he had such a great appreciation for things that are technologically amazing, which allowed genius to flourish to a degree, so limited because of all the potential that was wasted largely on account of people not belonging to a preferred ethnicity. I do reserve room for the possibility of some truth in the claims put forth by Nazi apologists that things might have gone very differently had no war been waged, yet there is no way that a plan to "repatriate" Germanic folk "back" into Germany could've ever peacefully worked within the lifetime of any individual human being.

I wonder they never made a horror movie with the Tarantula Hawk. I instantly have the idea, that an Tarantula Hawk invasion could cause a zombie apokalypse. The pure horror!
