It can happen in a flash. An ambush you never see coming. Hikers are easy prey for hungry mountain lions. A chimp cuts loose on an unsuspecting woman. Buffalo snap and impale pursuing hunters.
No matter how cute the animal, letting your guard down can have deadly consequences. Swim with Flipper – say goodbye to a leg. Frolic with a cougar – and your carotid artery is gone in a bite.
Stealthy, fierce and built to kill, the world’s top carnivores are used to getting what they want. If you’re in the way of a lion, polar bear or shark, prepare to face an arsenal of deadly weapons.
