Among animals the blue whale is the biggest and the cheetah is the fastest runner—most of us have known this since grade school. Find out which are the most outrageous incredible and scariest of all the animals.
Snakes are loaded with venom and their fangs are like needles injecting it straight t into their prey. Over one lakh people are killed by snakes around the world every year. There are only a few places in the world where snakes are really dangerous. The eight meter long African rock python is almost the length of a bus with a monster mouth and is one of the largest snakes in the world. Snakes only attack in self-defence.
Bears are far from cuddly. Found in North America grizzles are famous for their bad temper. The one thing guaranteed to make mom bear furious is if you get between her and her cubs. But she’s got good reason to worry. Her cubs are totally dependent on her. The big ones are three meters tall and weigh about 400 kilos that’s nearly six times the weight of an average human.
Crocodiles have powerful jaws but they can’t chew. So they’ve learned in team up and chow down. While their buddles hold it still each takes its turn to perform a death roll on the victim. He looks his jaw and neck muscles and spins around and that rips off a huge lump of meat.
Tigers. In India tigers kill up to fifty people a year. Tigers creep up on their prey from behind. But tigers only kill humans if they invade their territory or if the tiger is to sick or old to kill animals. Their stripes camouflage them in the grass.
Piranhas– The piranha fish has the sharpest teeth in the animal kingdom. They are over 50 species of piranhas and surprisingly most are vegetarian eating any scraps they can get. Most piranhas are attracted by the sight and sound of struggling in the water. Others just smell the blood.
