Some of the most effective (and deadly/lethal) predators on Earth are
they call ambush predators... they just sit and wait for their prey to 
wander past.

This is the view I prefer, predators, but not the top of the pile.
even if they were top of the pile there's actually no such thing as
no natural enemies". Besides the "we all get sick" problems, packs etc
overwhelm single large predators and large predators all have to go
a small or "weaker" stage. For instance even Great White Sharks have a 
pecking order and if you over step yourself you could be in big trouble.
