A jungle is a location characterized by dense vegetation. Occurring in tropical and subtropical climates, and filled with astonishing flora and fauna, jungles are generally regarded as the most beautiful places in the world. However, they’re also the most dangerous - for the exact same reasons that they’re beautiful. The plants and animals are fully adapted to the climate, but most humans aren’t, which is why so many television shows are based around humans surviving in the wild. Heavy rain, disorienting forests, antagonizing insects, and ambush predators make minced meat out of uninitiated adventurers. However, if you know just a few basic survival tips, the tortuous jungle may be a little less tortuous. We’re not saying that you’ll be Bear Grylls right out of the gate, but you’ll be alive, and that counts for much more.
