    Ascaris. They kill 5 times more people than hippos per year and it probably was way worse in the past. No, they aren’t vector or carriers, the worm is the one killing people.

    Probably some kind of cat. But given how common some phobias are, I'd imagine venomous spiders and snakes are also very high up there, possibly even higher.

    Some type of parasitic worm, I'd wager.
    They can't usually kill healthy adults, but the young or infirm? Score.

    Dinosaurs. Not even joking. Some carnivorous dinosaurs survived in isolated areas in Africa and the Middle East. It's where the idea of Dragons come from. You can see an example here next to modern animals.

    My guess is the Hippo, because it's the deadliest mammal and because it has a huge range across almost all of Africa. Humans have been in Africa for about 200,000 years, so that's a lot of time and a lot of opportunities to gore random bushmen

      Yeah, but the population was really small for most of that time. I'm not sure that the majority of humans were African.
      I think a domesticated species is actually more likely. Frequent contact increases the odds of them killing you, even if the odds during any given encounter are low. I'm leaning towards cattle, which are extremely common, have been domesticated for a while, and are fucking dangerous.

      Wolves. Because they're widespread. If we're counting all of the paleolithic, it would definitely be something they encountered often. It could even be some type of bull or boar maybe.

      If you lump them together with dogs as a species complex, they might be in the running.

          Who's going to die from otherwise disease-free mosquitos and ticks aside from totally helpless infants, old people, or the already sick and infirm?

            the unlucky

            ticks are one of the deadliest venomous animals out there, they just rarely envenomate anyone. But when they do people tend to die.

            mosquitos it's just a matter of numbers. They kill off thousands of animals in the woods already. People too if you don't have some sort of protection.

    Poisonous snakes, bears, and large cats probably.
