Venom vs Human Blood! Ever wondered what happens when you get bit by a venomous snake? Well it’s important to note that there’s three types of snake venom: cytotoxic, neurotoxic and hemotoxic.

Have you heard of the giant earwig? Characterized for its menacing-looking pincers and distinctive antennae. Despite their appearance (and reputation!) they’re harmless to humans and help control other insect populations. And no, they won’t crawl into your ears - they prefer to munch on dead plants and insects.

A real life river monster - the Alligator Gar (Atractosteus spatula)! Alligator gar are the largest of all the gar species — in fact, they’re one of the biggest freshwater fish anywhere in North America! And while this modern day dinosaur may look intimidating with its large jaws and gator-like teeth, don’t fret because they are not aggressive towards (or hungry for!) humans. Conservation efforts for this incredible fish are ongoing, as their populations have been decimated by habitat destruction, indiscriminate culling, and unrestricted harvests.
