In the animal’s world, survival is crucial. This information is helpful whether you are about to encounter these dangerous animals or you are just curious about how to deal with these animals. I invite you to read this list of the world’s top predators and how to face them.

1. Grizzly Bears

Grizzly Bears are an enormous mammals that weight 1,500 pound, you should always prefer to avoid an attack from them. The majority of bear’s attack comes form a female bear that protects her cubs. So, if you encounter bear cubs it is highly recommended to leave quickly and quietly before the mom will show up and think you want to attack her cubs. It is also recommend to stay away from areas with bears in March and April when young grizzlies begin their adventure in the open wild area.

But what if you can’t avoid the grizzly bear? Experts say that people should expose the chest by puff it out and remain calm and completely still. If that doesn’t work, lay down on the bely, cover your neck with your hands and play dead. Bear usually won’t get close to dead bodies.

2. Sharks

One of the biggest and dangerous animals in the sea are the sharks. Many people will say if a shark will approach them, they will try swim away. Sadly a shark will outswim every human being on earth. So, what people should do when a shark is approaching?

Instead of swimming away from the shark, try to play dead by stay still with as little splashing as possible. If that doesn’t work, prepare to punch the shark. Sharks are extremely sensitive on their nose and in between their eyes.

3. Lions

According to many studies, lions are only actively hunting 4 hours a day, but this doesn’t say that lions are not dangerous. Lions, sadly, kill almost 250 people per year. So how we avoid or even fight back?

The first step is to walk backward very slowly while keeping eye contact with the lion. Do not run, it will only trigger the lion to hunt you. Important to know that lions will engage with few fake attacks before really attacking their pray in order to confuse it. If they begin doing it, try to make yourself big by doing scary motions and a lot of noise. By doing this, a lion might give up and look for easier pray to hunt, after all they active for 4 hours a day.

4. Snakes

Snakes are one of the most feared creatures in all of the animal kingdom. Snakes can come in many sizes and species and some of them have deadly venom that can kill many people. But we can’t avoid the fact that the snakes also afraid from us. So how we both can live in harmony?

blank
Wild Horizons/Universal Images Group via Getty Images

Many if not the majority of the snakes start bite only when they feel in danger and if their enemy is getting too close to them, so watch your steps. Because snakes can blend and hide themselves, it is recommend to make a lot noises and look down to see any movements in the ground. Some of the snake can vibrate their tip of the tail and make sound which make it easier to spot them. If you spot a snake, wave goodbye and walk away.

5. Gorillas

Gorillas are not hostile to humans… Most of the time…
If anyone ever find himself in a situation where they are facing a gorilla and he starts beating their own chest, get ready to do the next thing…

In the gorilla’s world is all about social hierarchy. Don’t challenge them, don’t run and don’t look them in the eyes. Show the gorilla you know who the boss is and show them respect as much as you can.

6. Crocodiles

We don’t know the official number of deaths caused by crocodiles, but some say it is around 200 deaths each year. Those powerful lizards mostly live in lakes and rivers.

Sadly if you in the water and crocodile approach you, there is nothing you can do. Crocodiles can move incredibly fast under water and even on the ground. If you spot a crocodiles, just act as fast as you can and run away from the water and distance yourself from them. They usually won’t chase you on the ground, but if they do, run for your life in zig zag.

7. Scorpions

Do you think the bigger the predator the deadlier it is? Well, you are wrong. Scorpions is one of the deadliest creatures that cause 1,000 deaths every year. So, how we can avoid from a sting from their venomous tail?

blank

The best defense against scorpions is the preparations before even encountering one. It is recommended to wear thick jeans and high boots so their sting won’t be able to penetrate your thick cloths. Another advice is scorpions usually active and get out of their hiding places during night times or rainy days, so take extra precaution during your trip in the field when you notice upcoming rain or at night time.

8. Jellyfish

The unusual brainless jellyfish is one of the deadliest creatures we encounter on the beach and their sting is so painful and even can kill people without the right treatment.

There are some steps you should do to deal with after-effects of jellyfish’s sting before calling an ambulance. First of all, do not rub or scratch the stung area so the venom won’s spread quickly. Secondly, wash the salty water from you. Then neutralize the venom by putting vinegar with baking soda on the wound area.

9. Killer Bees

Some people are scare from get stung by a bee, but that I can assure you is safer (for people who are not allergic to bees) than getting stung by a killer bee. The best advice is to avoid from getting into a swarm of killer bees. But if you got yourself in this situation, here is the weirdest thing you are going to do to stay alive.

Flickr/pinkgranite

As I said, this is going to sound weird and against any human instinct. The U.S. Department of Agriculture suggest that you take of your shirt and cover your face if they Killer Bees start attack you. According to professional studies, we learned that human can survive over 1,100 stings at once.

10. Spiders

The small 8 legs creature with fluffy legs is no other than our beloved spider. Majority of the people don’t like them and even afraid of them. Spiders come with many sizes and spices. Some of them has deadly venom like the black widow which has venom that can kill many people from single tear of her venom. Spider’s bite can be noticed only during or after you got bitten.

If you spot a spider and you don’t know their spices (if it venomous or not), it is recommend to walk away or just try to kill them safely without expose any skin to them while try killing them. You can also try and capture them in container and throw them away. But if you already got bitten by spider, here some steps to do:
First try capture or take a picture of the spider (it is important for the doctor to know what spider bite you), Then immediately clean the bite area with soap and water and finally, hop to your car and head straight to hospital for special treatment.

Global Myths That Modern Science Prove They Are Wrong

Facebook/Batzilla the Bat

Some stories that passed on from generation to generation are not true, and it seems like some myths won’t disappear any time soon. Thanks to modern science, we are one step closer to the truth behind those old stories. Here is the list of some myths that modern science proved them wrong.

1. Listening to Mozart Will Make You (Or Your Baby) Smarter

This myth is known as the “Mozart Effect” and has been made by the psychologist Frances Rauscher. His study showed that kids function better in certain tasks that require spatial and abstract thinking while listening to Mozart. Because of this study companies start selling Baby Mozart CDs for pregnant women.

blank

But is it really true? After countless studies, we found out that listening to music in general lead to temporary improvement in cognitive ability and abstract thinking. So, Mozart is not particularly special, all the music and even narrated books seems to give that temporary improvement.

2. Chameleons Change Color to Camouflage Themselves

Thanks to animated and edited videos, many people thinks that chameleons can blend into everything they intact from trees to chessboards. Chameleons naturally blend into their environment often match their colors to tree or leaves.

blank

Surprisingly they have the ability, most of the time, to not just camouflage, but to stand out. During the mating season chameleons can be very aggressive and their body color changes to communicate with mates or competitors. Another theory that came out recently is that they even use their color change ability to adjust their own body temperature.

3. Human Blood Can Be Blue

The blood that flow through our vines under the skin seems to be blue, but that is a result of optical illusion. When light hit our skin, blue light reflects back and gives the illusion that our blood is blue.

blank
Facebook/Dougie Love

But eventually, human blood is red because of the presence of hemoglobin. Hemoglobin are cells that help carry and transport oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body and contain iron. That special natural iron turns red when it intact with oxygen and that is what makes our blood red.

4. Earth’s Proximity to the Sun Determines the Seasons

Many people studied in science classes, that the distance between the Earth and the sun determines the seasons every year. Many people believes that when the earth is close to the sun, summer arrives and when the earth is far from the sun, winter arrives and in between spring and autumn arrive.

blank
Facebook/99.5 WJBR

Earth spin on axis and because of that it is tilted and different parts of the planet is more exposed to the sun’s direct rays throughout the year as the earth spin around the sun. For example, in Northern Hemisphere, as the Earth get closer to the sun, winter is coming and when the Earth get far from the sun, summer is coming.

5. It Takes Seven Years to Digest Gums

Chewing gum is one of the favorite candies that exist today. According to an article in the Guardian, a British news and media source, it can take years until a gum is fully digested. Is that true?
No!

blank

It takes more time to digest gums because these are made of natural or synthetic polymer. But that doesn’t mean it will sit forever in our stomach, it will get out naturally after some time.

6. Camels Use Their Humps to Store Water

Many people believes that camels store water in their humps, but actually they store fat. They store fat in their humps as an emergency supply for long trips in the desert.

When the camel is hungry, they can absorb food from the hump till it is empty. The hump will get more and more droopy as it gets empty and will be refile by the next meal. Camels can drink 30 gallons of water and store in their bloodstream which allow them to survive more than a week without water.

7. The Great Wall of China is Visible From Space

One of the Seven Wonders of the World is the Great Wall of China. There is one funny but interesting myth, people thinks you can actually see the wall from space. This wall is an impressive structure which goes for almost 4,500 miles across China’s landscape. Although this magnificent wall is huge, we can’t see it from space.

blank
Wikimedia Commons/Peter Dowley

According to astronauts who been in space, they could see the wall only in low level of the orbit and in certain weather condition. One of the reasons why they couldn’t watch it is because of the wall’s material and the color that blends with the landscapes that surrounds the wall.

8. The Tongue Has ‘Taste Bud Zones’

We learned in school that our tongue is responsible for all the tastes we sense and that it is divided into parts where each part meant to sense different kind of tastes like bitter, sweet, salty and sour. This theory was invented 100 years ago by Germany scientist named David Pauli Hanig. Surprisingly, this theory was made with bad taste.

blank
Wikimedia Commons/TipolinaTucci

Research shown impressive results, apparently some taste buds are actually found in unpredictable places such as the top of our mouths and in our throats. It’s still true that some of our taste buds are placed on the tongue and these are more sensitive to specific tastes. These taste buds filled with receptor cells which send information to our brains and analyze which taste we encountered.

9. We Only Use 10% of Our Brain

A very common science myth we all heard before – we use only 10% of the brain. Films that got inspired by this myth such as Limitless and Lucy, followed the question what if we could use more than the 10% of the brain and reach “our full potential”. Well, the myth proven to be wrong thanks to the modern science, and we now know that our brain is more active than we think.

blank
Wikimedia Commons/Akaychestnut

As quoted from neurologist John Henley: “Evidence would show over a day you use 100 percent of the brain”. In fact, by using certain technology to scan the brain, scientists can see that the brain actually is in none stop action even while we are sleeping.

10. Rusty Nails Cause Tetanus

Many people believe that stepping or get injured by rusty nails will put you in high risk to get tetanus. Although, rusty nails and metal are usual a way to intact with tetanus, the infection it’s self has nothing to do with the rust. Bacteria named Clostridium tetani (C tetani) is the one that cause tetanus which infects the nervous system, causing severe muscle spasms and even death.

blank
Facebook Borderland/Expeditions

Actually what cause the tetanus is the ground pieces that surround the rusty nails which carry the bacteria and not the nail itself. Even small crack or scratch on the skin by the pieces can cause infection.

11. Ostriches Bury Their Heads in the Sand

When person who prefer to ignore their problems instead face them, we say as metaphor “they stuck their head like ostrich”. Usually according to the myth, ostrich will bury their head when they sense danger, but that’s not quite right.

blank
Wikimedia Commons/Tony Wills

Sometimes ostrich will lay it’s body on the floor in a position that can gives the illusion that he burry it’s head. The reason they do it is usually when they incubates on the eggs and use the peak to move the eggs which again give the illusion, they burry the head.

12. Diamonds Come From Coal

One of the weirdest science myths I ever encounter is that diamonds came from coal, which is incorrect. Coal was formed by rotten plant materials that marge together for decades.

blank
Wikimedia Commons/Dave Fischer

Diamonds can be formed in many ways one of the majority ones is result of volcano eruptions.

13. Bats Are Blind

We all know the night flying mammals that look like mouse with wings, yup I am talking about the bats. Bats got an ongoing myth due movies that they are completely blind. This myth is wrong and in fact, there some bat species that actually possess good vision.

blank
Facebook/Batzilla the Bat

Majority of us learn in science class that bats are blind and use echolocation – ultrasonic sound waves that impact objects such as obstacles and food which help them fly and survive at night. But, species like Larg fuit-eting bats rely on their sharp vision to find food. Some studies show this specie have three times better vision than human’s vision.

14. “Lightning Never Strikes the Same Place Twice”

We all know the good old phrase “lightening never strikes the same place twice” to calm someone that the same bad thing won’t happen twice. Sadly, lighting can strike the same place twice.

blank
Wikimedia Commons/Ranji Banji

Lightning is a very powerful electrical discharge made during a thunderstorm. According to many Scientist’s, reports show that sometimes those discharge can back up to the thundercloud and can create repetitive cycle of strikes. Those reports mean that indeed it can strike multi times. The well known Empire State Building for example, is getting struck almost 100 times a year.

The Top Pet Myths You Should Stop Believe In

KENNEDY NEWS AND MEDIA

From trending food diets to old known myths, you won’t believe what pet’s owners commonly think about their pets. Some of the myths sound silly and won’t harm your pets, but some of them are. Without any further discuss, this is the list of myths you should stop believe in:

Cats Purr When They’re Happy

We all know that when we pat our cats, they start to purr and we think they are happy. Well, it is not correct. According to researches, cats do not purr only when they enjoy while being pet, cats also purr when they are nervous, fearful, stressed or in pain.

For example, cats create low frequency vibrations purrs to help their body heal wounds and repair bones. Moreover, kittens use purr to bond more with their mothers or even when they encounter birds.

You Can’t Teach an Old Dog New Tricks

Most owners will say “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks” because said owners think that their dogs are too old and not smart enough. This myth is also not true.

It’s true that puppies may be easier to train because they didn’t gain/build any kind of regular behavior yet, but older dogs still can be trained! It might take longer but they can. Dogs, like humans, can experience age-related illnesses (like dementia) and by teaching them new tricks, the owner might improve their mind and will slow the progression of the disease. According to studies, training old dogs might take longer but they will retain their knowledge for the long-term.

All Dogs Can Swim

We all believe that when we will take our dogs to the beach, we will see them swim in the water, well that totally not true. Dog’s ability to swim determined by their breed and their body structures.

advantagepetcare

Some breeds are born with the ability to swim and some dogs can swim because of their body type. Experts suggest keeping an eye on dogs while they go near deep water areas and even put fence around private swimming pools. More than that, experts suggest that if owners want their dog to have fun in deep water, they will wear specially designed life jackets to prevent them from drowning.

Cats Always Land on Their Feet

“Cats always land on their feet” myth exists since ancient times, but today scientists have proven that belief technically is incorrect. Cats and other animals born with unique reflex instincts. These instincts allow them, as they fall, to react in order to prevent injury or death.

Cats can adjust and reposition their legs and lands safely on all fours after falling due to their highly flexible backbone and lack of functional collarbone. Even with this amazing skills, cats won’t always land safely – it depends on the height from where they fell and the response time of each cat – which means it still can lead to injuries or even death.

A Dog’s Mouth Is Cleaner Than A Human’s

Medical experts suggest dog’s owners to avoid from letting their dogs lick them. Dogs put everything in their mouths or bring their nose close to garbage.

Dogs like humans, have in their mouth oral bacteria. Because humans share only 15% of those bacteria, it can potentially cause illness or death to humans.

A Wagging Tail Means A Dog Is Excited or Happy

Another common myth is when we see dogs wagging their tails, we think they are happy but once we approach to them but we might get bitten. According to scientists and even dog behaviorists, a wagging tail simply means the dog is mentally ready to engage. This is not an indicator of their mood or state of mind.

Hypro Premium / Dog Tips, Hypro Premium

Dog’s tail wagging might indicate different emotions such as fear, annoyance, curiosity, enthusiasm, confidence, tension, nervousness, or hostility. Dog behaviorists suggest noticing the tail wag speed. For example, a tail wag follow by the body movements (body move side to side as the tail wag) show friendly and positive response from the dog, while a slow and stiffer wag can translate as proceed with caution.

Taking Care Of A Goldfish Is Easy

Goldfish are so simple to take care of, just put them in simple bowl of water and feed them from time to time. Well…. No. Goldfish may look different but they have some “carp family traits”: They create large amount of waste from their faces and gills which mean it can soil the bowl fast and risk their own life.

Even tiny goldfish require aquarium tanks of at least 20 gallons. With good care goldfish can grow and last 10 years but it requires constant care of the fish in the tank/bowl.

One Dog Year Equals Seven Human Years

Famous pet myth is that one dog year equals seven human years. Experts says it is not an accurate way to access a dog’s age.

SERGEY RYUMIN/GETTY IMAGES

According to a chart created by the American Veterinary Medical Association, scientists can now know how to measure the maturity of the dog. For example, a medium-sized dog’s first year is equal to 15 years of human being, next year equal to 24 human years. The next years equal to 4 to 5 human years.

It’s Okay for My Cat To Be An Outdoor Pet

One of the myths that can risk and put your pets in danger is “it’s Okay to for pet cats to be an outdoor pet”. Outdoor risks can be, poison food source on the streets, car/ bicycle accidents, unwanted pregnancies, and transmission of disease to free-roaming cats. More than that, one of the late researches tells about the possibility dangerous effects that cat can do on the environment.

According to Dr. George Fenwick, President of the American Bird Conservancy, cats kill (hunt) dozens if not hundreds to thousands animals such as birds and mice per year. While the cat roams, they leave behind “nature garbage” which in times might contain parasites which causes toxoplasmosis. Those parasites can cause diseases like severe brain damage or death to unborn babies.

Kittens Need Milk

We think that kittens need milk, no matter if it is from their mother or not. This myth is also wrong and might even risk those poor kittens. The only milks that is safe for kittens are milk from their mother, or a special kitten milk replacement.

A kitten’s digestive system is weaker than adult cats and cow milk can cause diarrhea, which can lead to deadly dehydration.

Shaving Long-Haired Dogs Will Keep Them Cool During Summer

We all see our dogs with the fluffy long hair during the summer and all we want is “to help them”. So we shave the long hair to keep them cool in the summer. Apparently not all dogs need to be shaved. Some dogs use their long hair to capture air and use it as a cooling system for their body.

Raddit/u/phoriaa

For example, Siberian huskies or collies have double layer fur coats, during warmer season the dog’s protective layer undercoat is mostly shading and let cool air flowy closer to the dog’s body instead be insulation by the thick undercoat fur layer. Shaving to much of the dog’s hair might expose the dog to sun and cause sun burns.

A Raw Meat Diet Is the Best For A Dog

One of the myths that even make veterinarians worry is the fact that there some pet’s owners that give their dogs a raw meat diet. This diet includes raw meats, vegetables, raw eggs, and bones. All this to make their dog feel “closer to the wild”.

This diet can expose these dogs to deadly microbes found in raw meat. While the wolf hunt and eat raw food in the wild thanks to their strong Immune system, pet dog doesn’t have this immune system and this act put them at risk.

Dogs Can Only See in Black And White

You might already believe in this myth even if you don’t have a dog. Many people, including scientists, believed that dogs could only see in black and white. Thanks to the advancement of the science and technology, we can say goodbye to this myth. New research shown that dogs indeed can see colors but not the spectrum colors that human being able to see.

Dog eyes, like human eyes, have special color-sensing cells called cone photoreceptors. The dogs have 2 out of 3 cone photoreceptors compare to humans. Each one reacts to different colors found on the spectrum of visible light.

Dogs Heal Their Wounds by Licking Them

People believes that the saliva of the dog helps them heal themselves from injures. Sadly, that not true. According to the science, the act of dog licking their wounds won’t heal them but can possibly make it worst.

Letting your dog lick their wounds may result in reopening the wounds, warm the spots and even sabotage their sutures from surgeries. More than that, as mentioned before dogs mouth is not that clean and dangerous microbes might get into the dog body via the open wounds and cause infection.
