Number 6 on Australia's deadliest animals list -  The Salt-water Crocodile - Crocodiles are highly publicised for viciousness and aggression, along with looking scary, it is probably a surprise they are further down the list than you may have thought, this is because there are very few deaths per year - The longest croc ever measured and verified was 6.4m (21ft).
