These Are 8 Of The DEADLIEST Creatures Of The Amazon
If you’re thinking of taking a vacation to the Amazon to “get away from it all”, you don’t know just how right you might be. While it might seem like it would be the vacation of a lifetime, there are critters down there , that given the chance, would put an end to your life if you came into close contact with them. It’s not that these creatures are evil monsters, it’s just in their nature to get an easy meal, or in some cases, to protect themselves from predators.
With everything from raptors , reptiles & spiders, cute little brightly colored frogs and even big cats, the Amazon has something for everyone and did I forget to mention…all of the animals I just named can KILL YOU ?
Watch the video so that you can see all of them for yourself and beneath the video, I will place key information regarding all of them. And if you want my advice…go to Disneyland instead…it’s alot safer.
