Deadly Animals

Scorpion Deadly Black Fear Animal Primitiv

Whatever you do, do not get too close.

10. The Grizzly Bear

The actual version of the”teddy bear” isn’t quite as cute and cuddly as small kids would love to think. Roaming a number of America’s most scenic places, the Grizzly Bear is a monster of the crazy who understands his place and makes everybody else aware of it.

Once they back on their hind legs you know that you are in trouble so back away slowly and do not allow the bear sense your fear. Do so, and you might avoid being trampled, mauled and savaged.

9. The Shark

While they generally won’t bother you in case you do not bother them, they’ll be attracted to you if you’re wearing bright colors like orange and crimson, and will tear you apart from the fastest way possible.

A word of advice: Do not watch the before mentioned pictures before you take a dip since the paranoia is very likely to keep you from the water!

8. The Mountain Lion

OK, multiply the size of your home cat by at least 5 and you will have to deal with one of America’s most dangerous creatures. Roaming the hills of North America, these powerful creatures surely mean business. Mountain Lions are found in lots of the nation’s National Parks and the best method of attack is to get into a boxing match together, with additional points given for punching them in the eyes and nose.

7. The Scorpion

They’ve a known habit of slipping into sleeping bags of campers, so make certain to shake out your bag before you get too cozy.

6. The Venomous Snake

Ophidiophobia is something which lots of people (like myself) suffer with (And for good reason). These scheming, slippery snakes slither in the list at sixth position, but in my mind, should be a lot further up the ladder!

5. Killer Bees

Macaulay Culkin expired from them in My Girl therefore it should come as no surprise that killer bees create this list. These wicked little critters travel in packs and anger an assault whenever they hear you coming with a lawnmower or trimmer.

Think again since these stingers will chase you up to 1000 feet and for up to ten hours. So the next time you go outside to mow your yard, ensure that you have some comfortable running shoes on.

4.

Trust us, you do not need a house anywhere close where the buffalo roam.

While only dangerous if you search them, these big creatures can commonly be found in a few of the nation’s national parks and kill more people than grizzly’s do. The best way to prevent them; Do not hunt them!

3.

When most spiders give folks the creepy crawlies, it is just the deadliest ones we should be really worried about.

The black widow spider is one of these and can kill with one sting. Unfortunately there’s very little you can do about them anyhow hope you do not encounter one.

2. The Mosquito

These small blood suckers are now widespread in the united states so be sure to stock up on repellant before you even consider camping.

1. White Tailed Deer

Surprised? Many would not believe these cute, little innocent creatures would even make the list, but these cuddly little critters are responsible for 130 American deaths and 29,000 accidents annually.

So the next time you’re watching the Disney classic, think twice about how adorable Bambi really is.

Arctic Animals

Emperor Penguins Antarctic Life Animal Ice

Penguins are one of nature’s most endearing birds with their humorous waddle and inquisitive nature. We simply can not help but anthropomorphise these beautiful creatures once we see their cheeky antics. But BBC1’s recent show’Penguins: Spy in the Huddle’ has been showing that in fact they really are surprisingly like us in several ways.

Having been lucky enough to walk among numerous penguin colonies in Antarctica and Chile, I’ve loved watching the distinctive perspectives from’Eggcam’ and other carefully disguised camera equipment in this series capturing the partnerships between the birds, which mate for life.

The seabird that picked up the camera and flew over the rookery of Humboldt penguins unsuspectingly gave us a spectacular birds-eye view like no other, and certainly a first for wildlife filming of penguins. Although I have seen many of these birds in real life and watched them shout beyond my toes on their way to the sea to catch fish, this up-close view of them is just wonderful. And indeed it is fascinating to see their behavior when they believe they are’alone’!

To your own close encounter with them, there are a number of places to head to. To find some of the northernmost species, the Humboldt penguins, you could visit Peru or northern Chile, where the desert meets the ocean. There are penguins on the Equator from the Galapagos Islands!

Of course though, when one thinks of penguins, they’re usually in a much colder surroundings. The greatest wildlife adventure is an expedition cruise down south to Antarctica for the ideal opportunity to see many species of penguins. Take a longer excursion that includes not just the Antarctic Peninsula but also the Falkland Islands and South Georgia.

Emperor penguins with their beautiful plumage and striking trials to raise their young chicks in the harshest of winter conditions are possibly the most intriguing of these birds, not least because they tend to be found in the most inhospitable and inaccessible places on the White Continent itself. However, you also can marvel at these stunning penguins from a website on the Antarctic Peninsula accessed from the South American mainland. Fly in from your boat moored in the Weddell Sea by helicopter and spend a couple of days in a remote rookery seeing the girls and their moms at Snow Hill. Wherever you wish to go to see penguins and whatever species you want to see, you can make your fantasies a reality.

Or, if you’re in search of penguins, South America is also an option. We organised the most remarkable adventure holidays to both Antarctica & South America.

Yellowstone National Park

Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming

As far as visitable places inside the USA are concerned, Yellowstone National Park is one of the nicest. Originally covered in ice until a enormous glacier slid south uncovering the northern Rocky Mountains, it for the last million years developed and maintained great scenery and countless tourist activities. Yellowstone National Park now attracts millions to its beauty and wonder each year. Sense it’s beginning in 1872 by President Ulysses S. Grant, the park has seen bad and good times, and provides many geological secrets for kids and adults to explore.

Some of the parks attractiveness is attributed to the gorgeous colours of pools and geysers scattered throughout the park. Most notably is’Old Faithful’, a geyser nicknamed because of its constant frequency of eruption. The colours in the pools and the geyser eruptions are due to a super volcano that lies under the seemingly safe, miles thick, granite mountain range. Due to shifts in the geological pressure, the huge lake in located in the southeast corner of Yellowstone has risen almost ten feet to one side. This is the most notable visible shift of these pressures to the general public.

The spring and geyser pools scattered throughout Yellowstone are colored brightly and draw many photographers and audiences from around the world. The colors in these pools are made by volatile substances (mainly forms of sulfur) that leach fourth from the volcanic activity below. Not only are those pools some of the hottest natural spring pools in the world, but some of the most dangerous to wildlife and humans as well.

Yellowstone National Park is mostly located in Wyoming, and completely nestled in the Rocky Mountain range that stems from Canada to the southern United States. Due to its location, Yellowstone is ab-rust with many kinds of naturally occurring wildlife, flora, and fauns species. Many families see the park in hopes to peek the bison, bears, cougars and wolves who call the park home.

To increase the amount of wolves from endangered back to a sustainable level, Yellowstone National Park began a wolf recovery project in 1995 with the help of the National Park Service Dept. of the Interior and the United States Fish and Wildlife service. After the project began, free roaming naturally placed wolves from Canada were captured and reintroduced into Yellowstone National Park. Sense the job beginning the wolf population has grown more than 600%.

Although the imagery might be appealing and the wildlife abundant, there are some very real risks in visiting the park. Like every national park there are rangers and park service personnel as well as clear paths and designated tourist travel destinations within to help ensure public safetynevertheless, as a result of parks immense size and some parts inaccessibility, an individual can be seriously injured when visiting this outside tourist attraction. As with any wildlife situation, feeding or approaching the animals is prohibited for your security. The team at Yellowstone are attentive and concentrated on public and park safety. Remember when visiting any national park to take particular care and attention of children and to be attentive of your environment.

Yellowstone, although just visitable for eight months out of the year due to winter closures, is one of the greatest outdoor family destinations in the world. With days of clear cut hiking, river rafting, horse backing, and acres of scenery, Yellowstone is the perfect destination for many members of their family. From curious to wise and everything in between, I encourage everyone to see this sparkling American National gem before the ever changing planet changes Yellowstone’s scenery once more.
