Although there is a tranquility and oneness with nature when you are in the Amazon, it is still home to some of the creepiest and deadliest creatures alive. There are numerous things in the Amazon jungle that could kill you and there are also creatures that will just creep you out.
The following creatures are all fascinating and interesting in their own way. Some of them more dangerous than others, all are creepy. This a list of ten of the most frightening creatures found in the Amazon rainforest.
10 Green Anaconda
7 Brazilian Wandering Spider
6 Amazonian Giant Centipede
5 Bullet Ant
4 Black Caiman
3 Poison Dart Frog
2 Assassin Bug
1 Electric Eel
The name alone is creepy enough. The electric eel is one of the most interesting creatures on the planet because it has the ability to generate five times more electricity than a wall socket in your home. This fish (which is not actually an eel) has three unique organs, which work together to generate electricity. Usually, the way the electric eel attacks its prey is by using small amounts of electricity to stun it, and then they usually swallow it whole. However, if it is threatened, it can release large amounts of electricity for minutes at a time. Although it is rare for humans to die from the shock, they can be paralyzed from the pain and drown if they are shocked violently enough.
