In other words…humans are the new kids on the block and even though we have developed awesome technology to help us along, if we disappeared from the face of the earth tomorrow, within a few hundred years, you’d never even know we were here at all. because nature would simply swallow up any traces of us.
Another way we think we are superior, is our mastery of animals, but this too, is but an illusion. In fact, without any technology to assist us, we would fall prey to several species of animals. In the video below, they list 9 species of animals that could make short work of human beings.
Some are quite large and some are very small, but in the animal kingdom, sometimes, size doesn’t matter, it’s all about the weapons that certain species have that can make the difference.
