Most DANGEROUS Tourist Locations With Dangerous Animals!

Most DANGEROUS Tourist Locations With Dangerous Animals!

From getting bitten by a shark to trampled
by a 2,000 pound bull, here are 8 tourist locations with dangerous animals around the
world! Travel at your own risk! #8 Boa Viagem Beach, Brazil
Brazilian beaches are some of the most popular tourist destinations in the world!! Boa Viagem Beach is a beach that is located
near the city of Recife and is surrounded by high-rise buildings and a beautiful boardwalk. So what’s the problem? Recife has one of the highest shark attack
rates in the world. The water is plagued with tiger sharks and
bull sharks, so people are warned to stay out of the ocean. Boa Viagem Beach is where most of the attacks
have occurred and it is now considered one of the top 10 most dangerous beaches in the
world. This is a relatively new phenomenon as before
the 1990’s there were no reported attacks. In the 1980’s a large port called Port Suape
was built and during the construction they interrupted the breeding and hunting habitats
of many kinds of sharks. In the past 20 years, there have been almost
60 shark attacks in Recife with a death rate of 37%. According to the Florida State Museum of Natural
History, this is much higher than the worldwide shark attack fatality rate which is currently
16%. This could partially be due to the fact that
there are millions of beachgoers and lots of aggressive sharks sharing the water. The waters off of Boa Viagem are so dangerous,
that lifeguards no longer train there, but in a swimming pool instead. They receive special shark attack training
and are equipped with an electronic device called a SharkShield to hopefully deter sharks
when they are trying to rescue someone. Currently the only solution is a program that
catches the sharks, tags them with tracking devices, and releases them far from the shore
in an artificial reef. 7. Le Mat Snake Village, Vietnam
This village just outside Hanoi, is famous for its snake charmers and snake meat. This place is not for the faint of heart! Known as “snake village”, tourists can
sample a wide variety of snake meat and swallow the still-beating heart of a cobra. The most popular snakes are grass snakes and
cobras, and tourists go to the snake farms where they can touch the snakes before eating
them. I’m not sure who is more afraid, the tourist
or the snake!! Legend has it that a snake swallowed a princess
while she was on the lake. Her father, the King, promised to reward anyone
who could save her. A peasant by the name of Le Mat rescued the
Princess and the King honored him by giving him a fortune, and land, naming it after him. There is yearly festival from March 20th to
24th where villagers organize snake dance festivals in honor of the hero. Adventurous tourists will drink the snake
blood mixed with rice liquor and cheers. Bloody Mary herself would probably never drink
that! As you probably know, cobras are extremely
venomous and can spit their venom into a victims eyes, causing blindness. Most of these snakes are kept in small cages
and are extremely agitated before they are killed making it very dangerous to be near
them since they are killed in front of you. If you are accidentally bitten you must get
the antivenom immediately or you can die. Eating snake can have serious medical consequences,
especially if it is consumed immediately and the place is unhygenic. The snake meat could easily have parasites,
bacteria, and a high presence of heavy metals that you are consuming which could result
in severe illness or disease. You could be killed by residual venom, or
eat a contaminated bone. The snake’s head can still bite even 20
minutes after being cut off. Several chefs have died from severed head
bites, even though they are used to preparing snake meat on a daily basis. Do you still want to try that cobra? #6 The Sahara Desert Tour
The Sahara desert in northern Africa is the largest, hottest desert in the world. Even though it is extremely harsh, tourists
are flocking to the desert by the thousands for extreme tourism. If you have enough water, supplies, and a
good guide, you should be completely fine. But that doesn’t mean you won’t see some
of the most dangerous animals on the planet! There are plenty of snakes and scorpions,
including the deathstalker scorpion which is extremely venomous. This scorpion is about 4 in (10 cm) in length
and usually hides under rocks but can be very aggressive when threatened. The sting is extremely painful, but rarely
fatal so don’t worry too much! You should be more worried about the Cape
buffalo. This buffalo’s horns have fused bases that
create a never-ending shield made of bone on the top of its head. This shield is called a “boss”. Over 200 people each year die from being attacked
by this 2,000 pound (907 kg) beast in the Sahara. They are extremely unpredictable in nature
and have never been domesticated. Their only natural predators are lions and
large crocodiles, but even then, they do well defending themselves. Many argue that the Cape buffalo is the deadliest
animal in Africa, even more so than the crocodile or the hippo. #5 Snorkeling with Jellyfish
Palau, Micronesia is considered one of the world’s best dive and snorkel destinations! From the east coast of the US, it takes about
22 hours to get there! In the middle of a warm lake, you could swim
with millions of golden jellyfish. While this might sound scary, these jellyfish
were cut off from the sea and lost their ability to sting. These harmless jellyfish just bob around and
feed off algae although more recently it seems like most of the jellyfish have vanished. However, regardless of where you go, if you
like to snorkel and scuba dive, be very wary of jellyfish. Especially in the entire Indo-Pacific region. To be honest, the chances of being stung by
a jellyfish is slim since they don’t generally go after you to attack. Those who scuba or snorkel have little to
fear from jellyfish if they have a good instructor and keep their head on straight. However, there have been…accidents. Jellyfish stings usually happen because you
can’t see them very well. They can cause skin irritations and blisters
in mild cases. But they can also lead to respiratory problems,
cardiac arrest, and sometimes death. The most dangerous jellyfish in the world
is the sea wasp box jellyfish. SInce 1954, there have been 5,568 recorded
deaths. If stung, you may not last long enough to
reach the surface of the water, as their venom spreads throughout your body in less than
five minutes. Other species of box jellyfish are also deadly
and so is the irukandji, which is just the size of a thumbnail. So be careful if you are diving off the coast
of Australia, Japan, Hawaii, South Africa, etc. etc. But you probably already knew that! #4 Colombia’s Pacific Coast
While Colombia has a reputation for being a dangerous country because of its history
of cartels and kidnappings, there are plenty of natural dangers to be aware of. As the safety of the country increases, and
more scientists and tourists go to the jungle to explore the rainforest, you have to watch
out for one of the most toxic animals on earth. The golden poison frog measuring only 2 inches
long has enough venom to kill 10 grown men or 2 African bull elephants! This frog can be found in the rainforests
on multiple tourist trails in Colombia and attractions, specifically Valle del Cauca. Their skin is heavily coated in an alkaloid
toxin. If it comes into contact with the skin, it
can cause paralysis and then heart failure. This toxin is only found in six creatures
in the entire world, three from Colombia and three from Papua New Guinea. Oddly enough, dart frogs that are raised in
captivity are not nearly as poisonous as those that are found in the wild. The Pacific coastal area of Colombia is one
of the most biologically diverse areas and is home to hundreds of sub-species of snakes,
including 34 that are only native to Colombia. There are also many kinds of spiders including
the banana spider which is highly toxic. Soldiers make sure to stretch their socks
over the tops of their boots while sleeping so no critter crawls in. Also be sure to watch out for other poisonous
frogs and scorpions while you are wandering around!
#3 Feeding Crocodiles in Thailand At the Elephant Kingdom in Chonburi, Thailand,
you could stand in a rusty raft cage and feed crocodiles from flimsy sticks! The reptiles, which were used for crocodile
farming, would leap out of the water and grab their lunch. Pictures and video went viral in 2016 and
police raided the park and shut it down for 90 days until they could complete their safety
checks. A taxi driver going by the park saw the hundreds
of crocodiles surrounding a group of Chinese tourists on this raft, including children,
and he was so shocked that he just had to take pictures. When the crocs leapt out of the water, they
were just centimeters from the tourists’ arms. After it went viral, people were either outraged
at the lack of safety and teasing of the crocodiles, while others were trying to see how they could
sign up for this!! Which side are you on?? Let us know in the comments below!! The owner of Elephant Kingdom insists that
it is safe and they never let more than 15 people on the raft. He claims there have never been any incidents
in the 12 years it has been open, and that people always have a good time. Despite the consent of the owner as well as
the tourists, the site was banned. The owner has refused to comply with the suspension
and last I heard, he was waiting for the Fisheries Department to give a warning and conduct an
inspection. Thailand has the largest crocodile farming
industry in the world and designer brands source the skins from these kind of farms
to make boots and handbags. This might just be one of the world’s most
terrifying tourist attractions!! #2 New Smyrna Beach, Florida
New Smyrna Beach is a beautiful city on the coast of Florida famous for fishing, boating,
sailing, swimming, scuba diving, and surfing. In fact, it has been rated one of the “best
surf towns” in the world! It’s famous for its warm climate and beautiful
water but it also holds the title of “shark attack capital of the world!” In 2007, the area had more shark bites than
any other region in the world. The following year, the beach broke its own
record with 24 shark bites. Eight years later, it hadn’t died down. In fact, on September 18, 2016, in only a
few hours, three shark bites occurred. This is more than most shark-infested areas
receive over three years! Officials have even put up signs that warn
tourists, saying “Do Not Swim” at times or just a simple straightforward “Dangerous
Marine Life”. Thousands of tourists visit the beach every
year and it is safe to say that although there have been a huge number of bites, over 240
recorded, none of them have been fatal. In Highschool some friends of mine were surfing
in St. Augustine and a couple of them were nipped by some small sharks. Luckily it wasn’t serious and they just
had a couple of scrapes on their arms. More recently, a man posted a video of a dozen
sharks swimming around people in the water at waist level. It doesn’t happen all the time, but if you
want to swim safely, then New Smyrna Beach might not be the place for you. #1 Running of the Bulls, Spain
The fiestas of the running of the bulls take place in Pamplona Spain during San Fermin,
which lasts from the 6th to the 14th of July. While there are many other events that take
place, the running of the bulls has become known worldwide because of the thousands of
people who risk their lives each year. Originally, the events were held to transport
bulls outside of city limits. When this happened, young men would jump in
front of them to show their “bravado”. Now the point is to run in front of the bulls
and try not to die!! Or get trampled! Or suffocated! Every year, anywhere between 50 to 100 people
are injured during the Bull Run. In 2013, 50 people were taken to the hospital
due to their injuries. As the festival becomes more and more popular,
your chances of getting gored are getting higher. How bad is it to get gored? You’ll probably live but a sharp horn can
cause internal injuries several inches deep. If you get gored by a horn in a vital organ
or major artery, you might not make it. Since 1910, 16 people have died from being
gored or from suffocating or getting trampled on during pile ups of bodies. The roads are extremely slippery and narrow,
and many people, mostly the tourists, have been out drinking and partying the night before. Because of these dangers, 200 Red Cross volunteers
and 20 ambulances are nearby to take the injured to the hospital within 10 minutes. Thanks for watching!

  1. Should be more worried about cape buffalo in the Sahara. They live in sub sahara, pretty much everywhere in africa but the sahara.

  2. You are talking about Vietnam but the people in your video were all from India.. if you want to talk about snake, food and Vietnamese people make sure your information comes from Vietnamese themselves..

  3. I hate the tormenting of the bulls, and it is not as popular as it was and a lot of Spanish are now turning against bull fighting,

  4. Not all cobras spit venom. I feel like they didn't even both to fact check half of their sources before doing this video. Interesting, sure. Do your own research after watching.

  5. !nowwww!πŸ˜«πŸ˜«πŸ˜«πŸ˜«πŸ˜«πŸ˜«πŸ˜«πŸ˜«πŸ˜«πŸ˜«πŸ˜«πŸ˜«πŸ˜«πŸ˜«πŸ˜«πŸ˜«πŸ˜«πŸ˜«πŸ˜«πŸ˜«πŸ˜«πŸ˜«πŸ˜«πŸ˜«πŸ˜«πŸ˜«πŸ˜«πŸ˜«πŸ˜«πŸ˜«πŸ˜«πŸ˜«πŸ˜«πŸ˜«πŸ˜«πŸ˜«πŸ˜«πŸ˜«πŸ˜«πŸ˜«πŸ˜«πŸ˜·πŸ˜·πŸ˜·πŸ˜·πŸ˜·πŸ˜·πŸ˜·πŸ˜·πŸ˜·πŸ˜·πŸ˜·πŸ˜·πŸ˜·πŸ˜·πŸ˜·πŸ˜·πŸ˜·πŸ˜·πŸ˜·πŸ˜·πŸ˜·πŸ˜·πŸ˜·πŸ˜·πŸ˜·πŸ˜·πŸ˜·πŸ˜·πŸ˜·πŸ˜·πŸ˜·πŸ˜·πŸ˜·πŸ˜·πŸ˜·πŸ˜±πŸ˜±πŸ˜±πŸ˜±πŸ˜±πŸ˜±πŸ˜±πŸ˜±πŸ˜±πŸ˜±πŸ˜±πŸ˜±πŸ˜±πŸ˜±πŸ˜±πŸ˜±πŸ˜±πŸ˜±πŸ˜±πŸ˜±πŸ˜±πŸ˜±πŸ˜±πŸ˜±πŸ˜±πŸ˜±πŸ˜±πŸ˜±πŸ˜±πŸ˜±πŸ˜±πŸ˜±πŸ˜±πŸ˜±πŸ˜±πŸ˜±πŸ˜±πŸ˜±πŸ˜±πŸ˜±πŸ˜±πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜©πŸ˜©πŸ˜©πŸ˜©πŸ˜©πŸ˜©πŸ˜©πŸ˜©πŸ˜©πŸ˜©πŸ˜©πŸ˜©πŸ˜©πŸ˜©πŸ˜©πŸ˜©πŸ˜©πŸ˜©πŸ˜©πŸ˜©πŸ˜©πŸ˜©πŸ˜©πŸ˜©πŸ˜©πŸ˜©πŸ˜©πŸ˜©πŸ˜©πŸ˜©πŸ˜©πŸ˜©

  6. That looked like the bulls in Portugal not spain. Running of the bulls don't have ropes and they are not single bulls but multiple bulls running together.

  7. Honestly for the event in Spain all I can say is.. wtf are wrong with you people? If a bull gores you, GOOD, you pricks deserve it, these are animals and should be left alone, sure it's adrenaline filled but do you truly get satisfaction out of it? Or happiness? Smh this world use to be good at one point, now it's going further down to shameful and sad.

  8. U not gon find me goin near NO DAMN SNAKE!πŸ’―πŸ’€πŸ€·πŸΎβ€β™€οΈ so y tf would i even consider EATIN 1πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ’€ no ma'am βœŒπŸΎπŸ’€

  9. Here in Australia. There have been a fair few irikanjui jellys drifting southing starting at the Gold Coast. Theyve gone now.

  10. 3:03 wtf is that eating snakes ffss.. I'd rather die of hunger instead of eating snakes people are crazy hell nah wtf is going on??πŸ˜ πŸ˜ πŸ˜¨πŸ”«πŸ”«πŸ˜‘

  11. For fucks sake, leave the sharks alone and just don't go to the beach! Humans are not the most important creatures on this planet.

  12. #5 made no sense. You said the jellyfish at that location are harmless, so why are you talking about jellyfish that aren't found there?

  13. the part with the cape buffalo is not true cape buffalo as their name says are home in the suthern regions or cape regions of africa and do not occur in the sahara desert

  14. Actually the Sahara isn’t the largest desert on earth. In fact it’s Antarctica, a desert is defined by not getting a certain amount of rain each year. Since it’s so cold it rarely ever rains.

  15. why drink snake blood when you have water fanta cococola ect and so many people coming to see bulls when sometimes they will get killed and going to the hotest driest dustiest place on earth i mean come on

  16. Clearly unverified. The first one, where they show places in the south east Asia (Vietnam) has clippings of places in india and the snakes too. The one where you see a man trying to round up a snake, is from Kerala in South India (where I belong).
    To me, this one video tells me something is not honest about this channel. Sorry, no credibility here!

  17. Yes! I was at the beach but i was scared because i thinked that was a bunch of jellyfish like glowy jellyfish and when i touched something like a paper i was scared. I was in Albania. Now this beach it wasn't with jellyfish. I telled to 2 womans and they said that if you are far you can see jellyfish. NOTHING TO SAY.JUST I REMEMBER THAT I WAS STUNNED BY A JELLYFISH. FORTUNATELY I DIDN ' T DIE .WHY I ' M SAYING THAT I DIDN ' T DIE BECAUSE I GOT THE ANTIVENOM AGAINST THE SEA WASP'S VENOM.ALRIGHT IM NOT AS SUCH SPEACHLESS FOR THIS THINGS!

  18. As Americans we consider these celebrations barbaric and we criticize other cultures. Yet we fail to consider how much cruelty is commonly found among the great animal raising companies in the USA. PETA has filmed many of the abuses and we fail to react. It is hypocrisy to be critical of other nations while we hide our own dirt.

  19. If it bites you and you die, its venomous. If you bite it and you die, its poison. Dart frogs are poisonous, not venomous.

  20. Bulls love to rub there faces in cow poo and by extension get it all over their horns. So you could get quite an infection on your vacation if you get gored.
