This snake causes the majority of snake-related deaths in the world and is found in less developed areas that lack medical care, such as dry regions in Sri Lank, India, Pakistan, the Middle East, and Africa. It uses a hemotoxin which is similar to a boomslang.
They also produce a sizzling warning sound by rubbing parts of their body together. These snakes are active at night, biting most of their victims during these hours. The outcome? Victims bleeding to death for several weeks.
You probably can’t outrun this large mammal, unless you can run faster than 40 mph. This animal has poor eyesight and is easily startled. Even the slightest movement can make them pounce and attack. Although tough animals, rhinos are easily poached, especially while visiting their water holes to drink.
They are sought out by some humans for their horns, which are sold on the black market and used by some people as decoration or traditional medicine, especially in Vietnam and other East Asian countries.
Tapeworms live in the intestines of larger animals. Humans can catch tapeworms by eating undercooked meat which comes from infected animals such as pork, beef, and fish. You can also catch tapeworms by eating food prepared in unhygienic circumstances. These small worms can grow in your body by eating the food you consume. The beef tapeworm can grow up to 65 feet.
They can cause serious damage to your organs and in some cases, death. The most dangerous are pork tapeworms, which can seriously affect your organs and cause damage. Symptoms may be few or none at all, or they can actually include abdominal pain, nausea, diarrhea, and weight loss.
This crocodile uses a crazy killing method called the “death roll.” It rolls its kill over and over in the water until it drowns. It is extremely powerful and fast. Its diet is very vast, eating anything from water buffalo to sharks. It is the largest reptile in the world, with males reaching a length of 7 meters.
They live in marine environments, usually in estuaries, mangrove swamps, lagoons, deltas, and shallow rivers. They are widely distributed and range from the eastern coast of India throughout most of Southeast Asia and northern Australia. They are known to attack humans, so refrain from venturing into their territory.
Fortunately, lions don’t usually feast on human meat. However, sometimes they do seek out humans. In 1898, a lion killed 28 railway workers in Kenya over a nine-month period.
Males are larger than females, and typically weigh 330 to 550 Ibs. Their mane is their most distinguishing quality. They usually live in grasslands and savannas.
