It can swallow entire gazelles, turtles, and even lions. This is the Nile crocodile, the most dangerous crocodile in the world. It normally preys on after animals found in Africa. But now, it’s coming for you.
But there are some things that you should be afraid of even more. They’re the largest snakes on Earth, roaming the Amazon. They’ve eaten goats, deer and even crocodiles. So what would happen if an anaconda tried to eat you? Can an anaconda really swallow a human?
But don’t cheer up just yet. Because what would come after you next would not be spooked by your size. Oh, no, no, no. Something is lurking in the water. Do you see it? Close calls like this happen with whales more often than you might expect. And although the people in these videos got away relatively unscathed, there’s no denying that they were just meters away from becoming a whale’s lunch. Could a human body survive being swallowed by a whale? Has it ever happened before?
