13 Terrifying Reasons To Stay Out Of The Water


Anybody who lives near the ocean has felt its draw. Even just a trip to the beach can satisfy the urge, but for some reason, the briny depths call to us. We’re connected to the sea.

However, there are hidden dangers lurking just below the surface. Even as it beckons, the sea demands respect. Riptides, rogue waves and undertow are just the beginning.

When you’re in the water, you’ll encounter creatures out there that will make it clear you’re out of your element. While most are harmless, some are the stuff of nightmares.

COMMENT on Facebook and tell us which one was the scariest!

1.Anaconda

Yes, these massive snakes are at home underwater. Native to South America, anacondas are some of the longest, heaviest snakes in the world. You don’t have to worry about venom with anacondas — they just wrap their prey with their huge bodies and squeeze, either cutting off blood to the brain or drowning the unfortunate prey.
