    I was in Kenya this year and in the park I was at there is a Chimp sanctuary where they foster Chimps that were being sold as pets in West Africa. And out of all the animals I saw there they were easily the most terrifying. At the sanctuary there was a safe room for the humans if they ever got out and the rangers do not even go into the facility without them being put to sleep. Crazy smart, aggressive and strong as fuck.

    I'm guessing they had been fighting for a while and the turtle was already worn out. I've come across a few of those fuckers and they are aggressive & terrifying

    It wasn’t his first turtle for sure, he negotiated that turtle better than I can handle a dead and cooked lobster.

    Oh yeah, and that idiot was feeding the chimp Xanax to calm it down from time to time. She was so surprised that the chimp attacked her friend.

    Google the picture if you want, chimps are ruthless. If you are a man they go after your nuts first. They also go after your eyes no matter the sex. Just a strategy, after that they just chew on you. They seem to like fingers

    Deer will eat birds that they find struggling on the ground.
    People who like those cool wolf pics should see videos of them eating elk and deer alive. The animals are crawling around with no hind quarters.
    And bears. Bears don't care if you're dead, they just start eating..

    Nature is scary. We should have a thread

    There Be Dragons: 6-Foot-Long Lizard Terrifies Florida Family
    By Mindy Weisberger, Senior Writer | August 31, 2018 12:47pm ET
    [​IMG]
    Monitor lizards are not native to Florida, but there are breeding populations of Nile monitors (Varanus niloticus) established in several counties, and they have been sighted across the state.

    A Florida family is afraid to use their swimming pool — and with good reason. Earlier this week, the family spotted a giant monitor lizard the size of an adult human lurking on their property.

    The Lieberman family in Davie, Florida, discovered the uninvited visitor roaming around their backyard, Miami-Dade's Local 10 News ABC reported on Aug. 29. Parents Zack and Maria Lieberman told reporters that the lizard was so big, they feared for the safety of their two young children. [See The World's Most Bizarre Lizards]
    The enormous reptile — which was identified as an Asian water monitor (Varanus salvator) — measures approximately 6 feet (2 meters) long, according to Local 10 News. Over several days, the scaly invader made repeated appearances near the Lieberman home, but has thus far managed to evade capture by local trappers and wildlife authorities, the Miami Herald reported.

    On Aug. 29, a neighbor visited the Liebermans, claiming that the lizard was an escaped pet, the family told Local 10 News. But because the lizard had not been reported as missing, anyone with a permit could trap it, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) told 7 News Miami.

    A dog working with the trappers briefly detected a scent that led searchers to a promising-looking burrow, but the hole turned out to be empty, according to the Miami Herald.

    Massive invaders
    Monitor lizards in the genus Varanus are a group of predatory reptiles with long necks, forked tongues, and muscular tails and bodies. They are native to Asia, Africa and Oceania, though some have become established in the Americas as an invasive species. The genus includes the Komodo dragon (Varanus komodoensis), which is the world's biggest lizard, capable of growing up to 10 feet (3 m) in length.

    Fortunately for Floridians, Komodo dragons are found only in the island habitats of Indonesia, but a number of its monitor cousins have made Florida their home, after they were brought to the U.S. as exotic pets and escaped or were released into the wild. Monitor species found in Florida include crocodile monitors, water monitors, savannah monitors, peach-throated monitors and two species of black-throated monitors, according to the Department of Wildlife Ecology and Conservation at the University of Florida.

    Another monitor species, the semiaquatic Nile monitor (Varanus niloticus), is the most persistent and problematic of these reptilian invaders, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) reported.

    Meanwhile, the hunt for the wayward Asian water monitor continues. Alongside the FWC, Mike "Trapper Mike" Kimmel, a wildlife trapper with Martin County Wildlife Trappers and Removals, is on the lookout for the elusive lizard, trying to lure it with chicken thighs, 7 News Miami reported.
