9 Most Powerful Animals on Planet Earth

Whether it comes to lifting pulling pushing orbiting some animals just possess sheer amounts of strength even the strongest humans could only dream of just imagine you could lift a truck with your bare teeth or push a massive rock 1 000 times your own bodyweight these and more are the incredible strength feats you can expect from the animals in today’s video as we count down the 10 most powerful animals in the world welcome to another episode of forever green and if you didn’t think an insect would be the strongest animal on earth then stick around for number one because it may just blow you away alright let’s take a look at some of these beasts.

Number 9 leopard

don’t be surprised when you see a leopard going completely vertically up a tree for 50 feet straight while pulling the carcass of a wildebeest that is three times its weight completely against gravity because that’s exactly what an adult leopard is capable of leopards have adapted to thrive in diverse environments from dense jungles to grassy savannahs to deserts and although they are the smallest of wildcat species they are pound for pound the strongest that is really how much power their body muscles contain their stocky powerful build allows them to drag prey far larger than themselves up into the trees to keep it away from scavengers now let’s see a lion do that and if you thought that was strong just wait until you see the world’s strongest animal at number one.

Number 8 leafcutter ant

seriously an ant oh yeah tiny leafcutter ants use their jaws to easily lift something 50 times their own body weight of about 500 milligrams that’s the equivalent of a human being lifting a truck with its teeth leafcutter ants can also cover remarkable distances while carrying such a heavyweight those remarkably powerful jaws is how they manage to carry large pieces of leaves to their nests but contrary to popular belief they don’t feed on leaves instead they use them as fertilizer to cultivate the fungi they feed on a colony of leaf cutter ants includes millions of these powerful individuals and can be a severe threat to agriculture single colony of leafcutter ants can defoliate multiple valuable crops and plants.

Number 7 Belgian blue

never has the term fat cow ringed less true than with these mutant cattle monsters these cows are called Belgian blue bulls and the reason they look so muscular and bulky is due to a naturally occurring mutation called double muscling which occurs when the animals lack a certain protein that regulates muscle growth that’s one protein most bodybuilders probably wouldn’t mind lacking either these ripped cows have well-defined backs and massive loins with strong looking legs and male bulls can often reach a weight of 1 250 kilograms they may seem intimidating but Belgian blues are actually quite docile despite their threatening size and power like most cows they are often described as pleasant and compliant but that’s no reason to put this cow’s patience to the test before we move on to our next powerful.

Number 6 gorilla

gorillas are not only the largest primate in the world they are also the strongest known for their incredible strength gorillas can get up to 5.7 feet tall and weigh up to 600 muscular pounds although they are about as tall as most humans their arms are far larger and much stronger than ours gorillas can carry a weight up to 2 tons which is often 10 times their own body weight now let’s see a human lift that much to give you an idea of just how long their arms are the arm span of an adult male gorilla can measure around eight feet in length just like us gorillas can walk on two feet but not for very long most of the time they use their strong knuckles to help balance their weight while walking on all fours they also use their arms to swing from one branch to another both climbing and knuckle-walking is what makes their arms so strong often 20 times stronger than a human’s case in point you do not want to challenge these guys to an arm wrestle.

Number 5 Belgian draft horse

seeing as Belgians have the strongest cows it’s no surprise they’d have the strongest horses to the strongest horse breed in the world is the Belgian draft horse which consistently wins global pulling contests according to the Guinness world books of records the largest and tallest living horse in the world is a Belgian draft that goes by the name of big jake if you’d guessed the biggest tallest horse breed would also be the strongest you’d guess right after all these super-sized horse breeds were bred for their sheer strength to be used on farms in the countryside to pull or carry heavy loads to keep them docile and obedient giant Belgian giraffes were also bred for calmness and friendliness since their work on a farm requires so much patience and high amounts of contact with people.

Number 4 tiger

although leopards are pound for pound the strongest member of the wildcat family tigers are overall the most powerful and largest by a long shot compared to your average leopard which typically only weighs around 60 pounds an adult Siberian tiger would measure 7 feet long and weigh up to an incredible650 pounds designed for tearing the flesh off bone their mighty jaws contain a total of 30 teeth of which the upper canines can easily reach up to four inches long like leopards and lions tigers are fearsome hunters and can carry up to twice of their body weight tigers become vicious fighters by standing on their hind legs while striking with their razor-sharp claws which is something even lions fail to do at this level considering their sheer size and strength these kings of the jungle are even capable of defeating adult lions in a fight.

Number 3 African bush elephants

seeing as they’re the largest living land animal on our planet it makes sense they’d also be one of the most powerful african bush elephants are the largest of all mammals on earth and are far bigger and stronger than their asian cousins they can grow up to 13 feet tall and weigh an incredible seven tons african bush elephants may not be pound for pound the strongest animal they can lift an incredible weight of 9 tons which does make them the overall strongest in the world the average car weighs just 3 tons and while it’s generally uncommon for elephants to attack people who are on safari they have been recorded flipping over an entire car like it was nothing their trunks are also very strong and contain more than 40000 muscles which can carry 450 pounds of weight considering the entire human body only contains around 600 muscles that’s a lot of muscle power for just one trunk it’s now time for today’s subscriber pick today’s photo was sent to us by a subscriber wondering about this dog pulling a boeing all on its own if you come across a mysterious photo online and want us to look into it just send it over and we may feature it on a future video we looked into this powerful looking dog and it appears to be an american pitbull terrier however it’s unheard of that a dog this size can pull an airplane which means it’s probably photoshopped however we did find this video of a couple of utah working dogs called blaze the American Pitbull terrier pulling over 2.5 tons on wheels at a weight pulling competition now that’s still far off from pulling the average boeing 747 which weighs over 200 tons but this dog can easily pull a pickup like the nissan navara and believe it or not they’re not even the most powerful of dogs because that would be.

Number 2 Tibetan mastiff

the top one strongest dog breed on the planet these watchful and imposing dogs were guardians back in ancient Tibetan times families kept these massive furry dogs because they are sweet and calm towards the family yet highly aggressive towards strangers it is even said these dogs would kill a wolf back in the days nowadays they’re mostly kept as pets but are not recommended for beginner dog owners and should always be kept on a leash while walking due to their protective nature otherwise they may turn aggressive towards those who aren’t their owners they’re not suited for apartment life either and need tons of exercise to maintain their powerful health and finally we’re up to the most powerful animal in the world can you guess what it is drumroll it’s the dung beetle.

number 1 dung beetle

seriously a dung beetle is not only the world’s strongest insect but also the strongest animal on the planet compared to its body weight one of these guys can pull 1 141 times their own body weight this is the equivalent of an average human being carrying 80 tons to put that into perspective it’s like pulling six double-decker buses filled to the brim with people now that’s superman level stuff the dung beetle develops such extraordinary strength through mating competitions during which the males fight with their horns which helps the dung beetle improve its strength and that’s it for the 10 most powerful animals would you want to keep any of these guys as a pet be sure to let us know in the comments below and if you like this video you should definitely check out our video on 10 most powerful dogs in the world.

The 10 deadly sins in terms of household Of Cats

The 10 deadly sins in terms of household
Pivot window? Hot plate on? A popular but dangerous place for cats to sleep: the washing machine. There are many dangers lurking at home for our cats, so it is important to be especially attentive and careful in some points.
safety first, especially in the cat household! Road traffic is still the greatest source of danger for outdoor cats – but there are also many dangers lurking in the home for pure indoor cats. What you should pay special attention to in order to avoid accidents at home, you can find here:
1 washing cycle with fatal consequences
Washing machines are perfect dens in the eyes of our cats, where they can hide wonderfully or take a nap. Before you lock the door, make sure that the drum is cat-free.

2 hot plate and iron – bad burns are imminent
Hotplates, irons, and other household appliances that generate heat and heat should never be left unattended. Quickly the cat will jump on the ironing board, quickly this can lead to burns on the paws.

3 Watch out for decoration
The decoration is nice, but unfortunately for most cats also disturbing. Often vases are in the way while romping, sometimes they invite cats to paw them on the floor. Broken glass can lead to nasty cuts in the cat.

4 Tilted windows become a trap
The bottom hung window is a mean trap for our cats. Especially in the warm season, we like to open the windows to let some fresh air in. Sometimes we just tilt it. Cats are curious and sometimes they cannot suppress their desire for freedom. The attempt to get outside through the tilted window often ends deadly. Special bars can prevent this.

5 A popular – but dangerous hiding place
Cupboards and drawers magically attract our cats. On the one hand, the clothes in them smell of us, on the other hand, cats can doze there completely undisturbed. But if the door or drawer is firmly closed, the animal is trapped and can panic. Please always make sure that your cat has not sneaked past you and is locked up.

6 Attention when buying plants
Plants and flowers decorate our apartments. But as beautiful as they are, they can become dangerous for our cats. They like to nibble on greenery, such as cat grass. Sometimes they don’t make a difference here and they attack plants that are poisonous for them. Before buying plants, check if they are harmless for your pet. Besides plants, oils like tea tree oil are also poisonous for cats!

7 Small parts are not only dangerous for children
Paper clips, earrings, and other small items that lie around are coveted play objects for cats. In the heat of the moment, they can be swallowed by the animal. Make sure that such things are inaccessible.

8 Full bathtub and open toilets
Bathtubs, buckets, and other larger containers filled with water should not be made accessible to the cat. The risk of cats slipping and ending up in the bathtub or upside down in the bucket is far too great. They have nowhere to hold on to and drown. Never leave deepwater unattended.

9 Toxic house cleaning
Cleaning agents and detergents belong in a locked cupboard. As with small children, household cleaners should never get into the hands or paws of pets. There is an acute danger of poisoning.

10 Store shopping and garbage bags safely
Paper and plastic bags are popular hiding places for our cats. Plastic bags should never be given to them because there is a danger of suffocation. The handles of paper bags should be cut off in any case. Cat paws can get caught in them or the head can even get stuck in them.

The Most Dangerous Dog Breeds

A dog – no matter what breed – needs a good upbringing, only in this way he can grow up to a loyal friend, helper, and protector. There are still, however, breeds that can become dangerous to humans. Such dogs should only be kept by experienced dog owners, people with a strong character, who have enough time to devote to their education. In this article, the 10 breeds are presented, which can become dangerous to humans, if they are not kept and educated in a species-appropriate way.

1. the American Pit Bull Terrier. This breed knows no fear. If they feel threatened, they attack immediately. There are many cases where a Pit Bull has attacked its own family.

This breed was bred for dog fighting and hunting bears and bulls. However, if the owner knows how to train such a dog properly, a Pit Bull can be a reliable guard dog, family protector, and friend.

2. rottweiler. The representatives of this breed are used as police and guard dogs. With the right training, these dogs are not dangerous. In the wrong hands, however, Rottweilers are aggressive and dangerous for adults and children. If this dog attacks, it can end deadly under certain circumstances.

3. bulldog. You can call him a quiet giant, but he can also be aggressive and explosive. Bulldogs are guard dogs, protecting their territory at all costs and attacking any intruder without fear or hesitation. These dogs do not know about their power and sometimes hurt unintentionally and in play by simply running over a child or an adult. The Bulldog has a strong dominant character that only an experienced dog owner can handle.

4. doberman. These animals are outstanding in elegance, reliability and loyalty. The Doberman is a strong and robust dog with a stable psyche. He is often kept to protect the house and as a reliable friend. He is usually the darling of the family and will defend it until death. With the wrong education, however, the Dobermann can turn into an aggressive dog, which is then extremely dangerous.

5. the German shepherd dog. This is a large and fearless dog that was once very popular in Russia. German shepherd dogs have exceptional protection dog qualities. He is suspicious of strangers and can be dangerous to people and other animals because of his size and agility.

6. the Central Asian Shepherd Dog. A strong and massive animal with strong muscles and protection qualities. This dog has a strong character and needs appropriate training. Unfortunately, it is often talked about how dangerous and aggressive and uncontrollable this breed can be, but the reason for this is not the breed itself but the education. This dog is an amazing guard dog that will always protect his family and home. However, if this dog is chained, it can turn into an aggressive monster.

7. the American Staffordshire Terrier. This breed is often described by the media as bloodthirsty killers super dangerous to humans. And every year there are more and more requests to eradicate this breed. But in most cases the problem is not the breed but the handling and upbringing. This dog is very social and loyal to its owner and will do everything to protect it. In the wrong hands, however, this dog can become a killer machine.

8. the American Bulldog. Friendly and reliable but a stubborn dog of immense size. This breed was bred to guard land and livestock. This dog is excellent to protect its territory and its owner, but too confident. This dog needs appropriate training.

9th Fila Brasileiro. This breed is bred in Brazil for dog fights. A reliable guard dog that distrusts strangers and shows his aggression openly. Do not go near this dog, he can seriously injure a human. Outside its territory, this dog is calm and relaxed. He is brave, strong and a “hot” dog, but tolerant of children and obedient.

10. chow. This sweet and cuddly dog is one of the most dangerous breeds in the world. He is very devoted to his master and his family but does not like strangers. This dog will never let a stranger into his territory. It is not easy to handle this dog, because his calm and lovable interlocking can turn into anger and aggression in a flash.

12 Most Beautiful Snakes in the World

with over three thousand snake species known to humans, it’s no surprise they come in all sorts of shapes colors and patterns if you two think we spend a little too much time fearing these slithery creatures instead of admiring their natural beauty then stick around because today we’re bringing you the 12 most beautiful snakes in the world seriously number two is so gorgeous it’ll leave you wondering how you could ever fear one of these majestic creatures again okay probably not but you get the point anyhow strap yourselves in and let’s take a look at some of these magnificent snakes.

Number 12 

emerald tree boa these beauties average around six feet in length but can grow up to nine feet long and are mainly found in South America especially along the amazon river the emerald tree boa’s slow metabolism allows it to go several months between meals when they do feed it’s mainly on small mammals but they occasionally consume birds lizards and frogs to these non-venomous yellow-eyed snakes have beautiful green skin with white pigmentation that allows them to blend in with their environment and although there are completely different species or often confused with the similar green tree python.

Number 11

Brazilian rainbow snake the Brazilian rainbow snake is one of nature’s most beautiful snakes these boas already have an attractive reddish-brown coloring with large black rings down their backs which is only enhanced by their iridescent skin tiny ridges on their scales act as prisms which refract light and create a glowing rainbow-colored effect hence the name given to them this standout reptile is found mainly in the Amazon basin where it feeds mostly on small rodents and birds but may also eat amphibians like frogs and lizards it is a mid-sized snake averaging about five feet though occasionally reaching seven feet or more.

Number 10

Morelia boeleni python this non-venomous snake endemic to the mountains of new guinea is truly one of a kind upon the first inspection the Moralia boeleni appears to be just black and white patterned but in just the right light the black scales take on an iridescent sheen giving this python an amazing oily coloration reminiscent of holographic metals the bowelini is highly desired by private keepers due to its beauty but also exceptionally rare to find as you’d expect from a shiny snake many specific strategies have been employed to attempt to get these rare snakes to breed but captive breeding is still exceedingly rare and the conditions needed are unclear.

Number 9

green tree python don’t let the snake’s gorgeous color fool you either while the green tree python is known for being green it isn’t the only color this species might be young green tree pythons may actually be bright yellow with brown spots a bit like a ripening banana youngling can even be found in vibrant red or even a very dark brown only after going through its stunning color changes does the species mature and change its color to a variation of green or blue however some green tree pythons will keep that yellow coloration for their lives let’s be honest here these guys aren’t nearly as green as they brag to be in fact the world’s most expensive snake is a rare green tree python that costs four hundred and twenty thousand dollars and is actually blue go figure.

 Number 8

eyelash viper even more so than the green tree python the eyelash viper comes in a variety of colorations including green golden yellow red-brown and gray just to name a few they can be of solid color or even feature patterning which can include the colors of black yellow peach and red but like a pretty girl with battering eyes, this snake’s uncommon beauty comes from its massive eyelashes which actually scale that stands out above its eyes because these snakes are as venomous as they are beautiful it’s best to admire those eyelashes from a safe distance luckily though this viper usually avoids interactions with people striking only if threatened.

Number 7

eastern coral snake this iconic snake with its rounded head in red yellow and black bands is famous as much for its potent venom as for its beautiful coloration red and yellow kill a fellow red and black friend of the jack is one of several rhymes that have been penned to distinguish the eastern coral from similarly patterned non-venomous copycats such as the scarlet king snake you probably wouldn’t guess it from their appearance but these guys are close relatives of some of the most venomous snakes like the cobra mamba and sea snake you want to be careful when walking in the southeastern united states wilderness as these guys live unnoticed in wooded sandy and marshy areas and spend most of their lives burrowed underground or in leaf piles.

Number 6

Asian vine snake this extraordinary geometric pattern unmistakably belongs to the Asian vine snake when going about its day the snake has what looks like a very slender almost all green body but when it feels threatened the Asian vine snake expands revealing the blacks and whites between its green scales which highlights its beautiful pattern the Asian vine snake is only mildly venomous and lives in trees where it blends well with its backdrop but that’s not its only defense mechanism when sensing danger vine snakes remain motionless but if there is a breeze they will sway back and forth along with the foliage to add even more to their camouflage.

Number 5

red milk snake while it may look a lot like the beautiful coral snake the red milk snake is a non-venomous species fooling predators into mistaking the harmless snake for its deadlier doppelganger red milk snakes can be found all over north and south America and can reach a maximum length of almost 5 feet but most of them are smaller sometimes reaching no more than 20 inches in adulthood they got their name from an urban myth stating they would suck milk from a cow’s udder it’s likely the myth came out of their abundant presence in barns where a bounty of rodents was available for feeding.

Number 4

blue Malaysian coral snake this blue snake found in Malaysia Cambodia Singapore Indonesia and Thailand uses its beautifully colored body to repel predators by turning over and showing its red underbelly as well as using its red tail as a decoy for its head this diversion allows it to strike with its venomous fangs while its tail is being attacked these guys can grow up to five feet long and live mostly on a diet of other snakes including their own species they’re fairly timid during the day but it’s at night when these cannibals become active and can be fairly aggressive.

Number 3

haired African bush viper these dragon-like spiny scaled venomous snakes are relatively small and get their name from the keeled scales on their bodies they prefer climbing in trees for most of their day but will venture onto the ground for food pretty regularly their venom is neurotoxic which means it can cause organ hemorrhaging but toxicity levels vary with each individual snake what these tiny 29-inch reptiles lack in size they make up for with beautiful scales that are longest at the head and slowly diminish in size as they go down their backs beyond yellow gold eyelash vipers maybe green-gray a pale blue brown rust or variation of several of these colors the golden yellow, however, is a real standout.

 Number 2

san francisco garter snake if you’re looking to add possibly the most beautiful snake to your collection that isn’t really venomous or dangerous you should seriously consider the gorgeous san francisco garter snake the garter snake does produce a mild neurotoxin that it distributes when chewing its prey but a bite from one of these colorful guys will only produce a light swelling and irritation that has no lasting effect on us humans while it is considered california’s most beautiful snake it is also the rarest due to people collecting them illegally for their unique coloration its body is a vibrant turquoise with black and red orange stripes running vertically down what is usually a 30 inch spine it is now time for today’s subscriber pick today’s photo was sent to us by a subscriber wondering about this incredible picture of a colorful king cobra if you two come across a photo online and want us to look into it just send it over to us and we may even feature it in one of our future videos so we looked into it it turns out that king cobras do exist in some colors other than black in this video you will see a red king cobra which is very rare it can also be found in lucistic white color due to albinism but these red yellow and golden variations are very rare and are one in millions.

Number 1

the king cobra the king cobra’s beautiful body is covered with glistening scales that almost look polished and vary in color and patterning depending on its location and habitat its back may range from tan to brown to black to olive green and its belly from cream-colored to a pale yellow when it comes to big snakes people generally think of boa constrictors and anacondas but the king cobra is actually the world’s longest venomous snake and while it can’t quite keep up with an anaconda the longest king cobra has reached an impressive 18 feet although they usually average out at around 12. large as they may be king cobras are still known for their agility and are considered the most dangerous acidic snake and perhaps also the most beautiful we’ll let you decide that one for yourself, for now, that’s it for the 12 most beautiful snakes in the world.
