What If These Three Animals Swallowed You?



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?

00:00 How dangerous are they?

What If the Earth Was Actually Flat? (Extended)



If the Earth had an edge, I hope it would look like this. The edge of a flat Earth. I know, I know, we’ve talked about it before. But there’s something mesmerizing about it. A flat Earth solar eclipse. Diagonally growing trees. The great wall of ice, guarded by NASA, of course. The flat-Earthers sure have a great imagination. But what if they were right? How would the Earth hold up in space? Would it revolve around the Sun, or would the Sun rotate around it? And why would you never walk to the Earth’s edge?

What If We Could See Through a Black Hole?

What If We Could See Through a Black Hole?

Get more insightful information about black holes with Pr. Clifford Johnson:

This star is about to transform into a black hole. And we’re about to travel inside it to see what’s on the other side. The only problem is that we’ll never be able to report our findings back to Earth. Because once you go inside a black hole, there’s no coming back. So maybe there’s a better way to find out what’s on the other side. Could we use a special telescope? How would light behave inside a black hole? And why could the first image of a black hole provide all the answers?
