The Amazon Rainforest
This big bad forest is located in Brazil, Peru, Colombia, and a little bit in Venezuela, Ecuador, Bolivia, Guyana, Suriname and French Guiana. The deep, dark, damp, bush is filled with a lot of dangerous shit. I’m still talking about the Amazon rainforest here fellas, c’mon now.
This sketchy looking thing can release short strong bursts of electricity, or long continuous shocks. Although the shock alone wont kill you, several deaths have been reported due to victims not being able to keep afloat after receiving multiple shocks.
These blood suckin’ goons like to latch on and drink the blood of plenty of different animals, even humans. Luckily, their bites don’t kill. However, they can lead to infections or rabies.
This thing can grow up to 9 meters long and weigh up to 500 pounds. Just like in the movie, these guys slither in the depths of the Amazon river, waiting to wrap themselves around anything they find- and then slowly suffocate their prey before swallowing them whole.
