Danger

Things that are great danger in a tropical jungle

Be less cautious of these things:

  • Weather-there is heavy rain which can cause possible flooding.
  • Tree sap-this can cause rash and be very irritating to your skin.
  • Rain forest fruits-healthy for birds and animals, but the fruit and seeds are very poisonous to humans.
  • Fish-piranhas only usually attack if provoked, bothered or feel threatened.

Be more cautious of these things:

  • Water-contaminated water contains bacteria and microorganisms which can cause a fever, dehydration, and diarrhea if consumed.
  • Poisonous plants-if consumed can cause great illness or even death.
  • Animals-jaguars, boars, and tigers are some of the more dangerous of the animals you could encounter.
  • Reptiles-there are many types of poisonous and non-poisonous snakes in trees and on the ground.
  • Insects-scorpions, brown recluse spiders, fire ants, and mosquitoes are the most dangerous of the tons of insects you could see.
  • Illness-mosquitoes can cause Malaria and Yellow Fever, two fatal illnesses. You could also contract Dengue fever, a parasitic disease.
