Sharks are scary, but there are plenty of animals on land that are just as frightening. These are the ones to watch out for:

  • Cheetahs are the fastest land predator and will sometimes trip it’s prey from behind. That’s playing dirty!
  • Tigers use the noise and darkness of storms to conceal their approach on prey.
  • A Darwin’s bark spider is no bigger than a thumbnail but can produce up to 82 feet of silk that is the toughest natural fiber on the planet. It’s stronger than steel.
  • The Portia spider can leap up to 50 times its own body length and eat other spiders three times their size.
  • Harpy eagles have talons as long as bears’ claws and feed on monkeys and sloths.
  • Honey badgers will eat anything, including scorpions. “Honey badger don’t care!”
  • An Ethiopian wolf will blow into the underground tunnels where rodents are hiding to flush them out and eat them.
  • Spinner dolphins stun their prey with powerful blasts of sonar, then eat them alive.
  • Bottlenose dolphins drive schools of fish onto the banks and then temporarily beach themselves to catch and eat them.
  • The Abdopus octopus is the only octopus adapted to walk on land. It pulls itself along using the hundreds of tiny suckers on its arms.
