In the depths of the ocean, massive behemoths roam from cavern to crevice. On the sandy shores of coastlines, gigantic monsters wash up unexpectedly. In underground resting places, giant fossils prove the existence of ancient beasts who once walked across the Earth and whose descendants hunt and gather through present-day habitats. From record-breaking snakes to bone-crushing crocodiles, these fearsome predators slither through warm climates and maintain their top spots in their local food chains. Meanwhile, giant coconut crabs sneak their way into neighborhood trash cans, swarms of fox-sized bats overpower suburban towns and monstrous owls swoop down from the skies to terrorize schools of fish. Sometimes, however, the fish can fight back. The largest catfish on record probably put fear in the hearts of smaller fish sharing the watering hole. And once an oarfish shows it’s face to land-dwellers, it brings news as ugly as its appearance. Outside of these creatures, born and bred in the wild, there’s also the surprising appearance of ligers, reared with the help of mankind’s interference. Not every animal here is naturally dangerous. Friendly mammals, from huge whales to larger-than-average otters interact with humankind when they come to the water’s edge.
