It’s a dangerous world out there, and even though we have things like terrorism, disease, and bus crashes, humans will always have an instinctual fear of being eaten alive by some wild beast.
For those of you hoping to add to this anxiety, there is a now a map that features a state-by-state breakdown of the animal most likely to cause your demise.
