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.
Rain forest Fruits
Very poisonous if consumed by humans.
Be careful in tropical bodies of water to avoid being bitten by one of these. Don't try to catch these or there's a good chance you could get bitten.
If it starts to rain, it can rain for days straight and cause flooding.
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.
Some plants are more fatal to consume than to touch.
Brown Recluse Spider
These spiders are very poisonous and if bitten, it may lead to amputation of the bitten part.
Mosquitoes carry many diseases that can be passed on if you've been bitten.
