Little Killers

Bobcats are stealthy hunters, and can kill prey much bigger than themselves.

Check your local listings.

These predators prove that when it comes to hunting prey, size doesn't always matter. Meet the World's Deadliest: Little Killers -- miniscule menaces with the ability to take down prey several times their own size. A fierce 10-inch-long weasel can kill a rabbit 10 times its size; 2-foot-tall Asiatic wild dogs team up to take down 2-ton water buffalo; and a golf ball-sized blue-ringed octopus dominates prey with one of the deadliest neurotoxins on the planet.
