There’s plenty of misconceptions when it comes to how to survive an animal attack – but a lot of them are bound to get you killed. We’re tackling all the most common survival tactics like; Should you play dead when attacked by a bear? Should you pee on a jellyfish sting? Is punching a shark in the nose the best option? Should you run in a zigzag pattern when attacked by crocodiles or alligators? Should you suck the venom out of a snake bite? You might be surprised to hear the answers behind these so called facts – and hey, it might even save your life.

  1. Check out these great Animal Attack documentaries:
    Nature Attacks! (I Survived True Stories #2)
    Unleashed!: Deadly Animal Attacks
    Animal Fight Night Season 3 DVD

  2. I heard moose was the most dangerous mammal in North America due to the deaths it is responsible for.

  3. If it’s brown just lay down. If it’s Black you must fight back. If it’s white, say goodnight.

  4. WHAT? The “actual” ways to do these are a load of horseshit. If a bear gets too close to you, and talking calmly with no sudden movements, you should start to appear big? THATS FUCKING CHALLENGING THE BEAR! When bears taunt/threaten each other, they rise up on their backlegs, to show their full size and APPEAR MORE THREATENING. AKA THEY WILL RECOGNIZE THIS AS A CHALLENGE AND ATTACK YOU!
