Unsolved Mysteries Of The Amazon Rain Forest 🔥🔥🔥

From the size of a dog to spiders to ancient mythological cities, here are the top 10 secrets of the Amazon Rain Forest….

1. Giant Spiders

Giant Spiders: - Amazon is known for its incredible ecological diversity, but there are stories of mysterious animals, and collecting evidence has proved somewhat elusive. 

One of these stories contain several accounts of giant spiders. I am not talking only about the size of your hand or the size of the cat, but much, much larger. 

Stories of the size of dogs is common in Amazon due to the spread of 6 feet of dogs and powerful poisons. Local communities believe that they invest in underground networks and use trap doors to reach the forest floor. 

Numerous expeditions have searched the area for evidence of such animals, and no evidence has yet been found of how the children have been carried by them in the dead of night, despite villagers stating that. 

There are sure to be some massive spiders found, however, like the South American Goliath tarantula that is about the size of a puppy! Its legs can reach up to one foot long (30 cm) and can weigh up to 6 ounces. (170 grams). 

People hear their toes report as they approach !! With new creatures every day, especially in the rainforest, it is very possible that there is indeed a giant spider lurking, waiting to be discovered.

2. Boiling River

Boiling River: - There are things within the Amazon that hardly seems reliable - one of which is the Boiling River. 

Instead of just a flow of hot water that has been given a creative name, it is really boiling! It is in central Peru Amazon, and there is considerable growth to achieve it. 

There are two different shamanic tribes that live along this particular stretch — where the 3.8-mile temperature of the river reaches 94 ° C — it's just 200 degrees Fahrenheit! The particularly scary thing about this river is what happens to animals that fall into the water. 

As you can imagine, they suffer quite a painful death, and petrified remains are often found washed up on the shores. 

For a long time, the boiling river was only something of a legend, and with so much of the forest still unexplored, it makes you wonder what other strange things it can hide. 

And now for number 8, but first if you are new here you are welcome, and make sure to subscribe! Do you know which is the largest snake on the Amazon? Let us know in the comments below! The answer is coming !!

3. Mystical Tribes

Mystical tribes: - Being in such a large area, the Amazon is home to countless tribes — many of whom have no contact with the outside world. 

This means that we do not know exactly how many people are living in the wilderness, and raise questions about the cultures, beliefs, and types of those people. 

For example, one legend has it that there is a group of tall, fair-skinned, fair-skinned, blue-eyed, European-looking people who live deep within inaccessible parts of the region - much to the presence of most other residents. 

Are different. These stories have been told since the 16th century, when the Spanish Dominican missionary, Gaspar de Carvajal wrote about them. 

In 1925, American explorer Alexander Hamiltonaris, Jr. also encountered him — and as recently as 1977 when a British and Brazilian expedition came to him. Who they are, where they live, or how many of them are — a mystery that one day may finally be solved.

4. Methane Emissions

Methane emissions: Scientists measuring worldwide methane levels were surprised at the huge amounts of gas released into the Amazon. 

It is commonly associated with the effects of global warming, and with cultivated cows. But why is a forest releasing methane? People usually think of green areas to improve the health of the environment. 

Methane is produced from many sources, for example, about 18 million tonnes are released from the ocean every year. 

The levels being released along the Amazon River, however, were found to be at least 15 million tonnes and 22 million tonnes. 

Each year, large areas fill the river, and this creates an ideal situation for methane production. Still, the amount released by these natural processes were not much higher than the actual levels being measured by satellite monitoring, so where are all the extra methane coming from? 

Recent studies have suggested that it may be trees bordering the floodplain, which act as chimneys that release methane from the ground to the atmosphere. Nevertheless, this does not fully explain the large release of gas, and possibly still another source that has yet to be discovered.

5. How did it develop in the first place?

How did it develop in the first place? We often think of the Amazon rainforest as one of the last predominantly untouched regions of the world, but what if it was in the first place due to human activity? This may sound like a stretch, but there is growing evidence to suggest this. 

This may be an indication that we still hold hope with being able to save forests around the world. More than just the result of human activity, some believe it shows signs of being structured in a specific way. 

The ancient civilizations who lived in the region not only built their communities in the jungle but also planted plantations around their towns and cities. 

They preferred trees such as the Brazilian walnut tree, and the palm tree, and many more are found nearby where evidence of ancient settlements has been found. 

In fact, in the Amazon Basin, proximity to archaeological remains is directly related to the prevalence of domestic species, which grow today. 

This means that the structure of the forest is still greatly influenced by how humans arranged their plantations thousands of years ago, and possibly even larger-scale forests from what it is today. 

Could Amazon really be an agricultural experiment that went out of control? Some people think so, but many people do not. One thing is for sure, there is still much to learn about how the forest developed in the first place.

6. The Missing Colonel

The Missing Colonel: The Amazon is one of the last remaining wilderness for explorers, and attracts plenty of people to make the next big discovery. 

It does not come without risk, however, and one of the greatest explorers of the time mysteriously disappeared in 1925. 

Colonel Percy Fockett was once the famed Scot of the Antarctic and is believed to be the inspiration behind the character of Indiana Jones. 

Inspired by the idea of ​​finding the city of "Jade", he led a team with his 21-year-old son, who made his way into the jungle. 

The story of these courageous people was in the news, but it disappeared. Several subsequent missions were sent to try and find him and his lost city but never found a trace. 

In addition, at least 200 people lost their lives trying to find him, causing illness, chanceful wildlife, or simply drowning in dense water. 

Once considered extremely popular as an adventurer, Fawcett joined history as a total rift. Somebody full of wild thoughts went on his death in search of a dream. Or did he? 

There are some who believe that he succeeded in achieving his goal, and after attaining such a delightful existence, he decided to stay there all his life. 

We can never know the truth, but one day maybe its remains will be found. However, the mystery seems to have been swallowed by the forest.

7. Circle of the Ground

Circle of the Ground: There is a well-known fact that deforestation is a major problem in the Amazon, but the removal of vegetation has exposed some man-made structures - hundreds of giant circles in the ground. 

Known as geoglyphs, they are geometrically shaped moats, and more than 450 have been found in the Brazilian state of Acker. 

The thing is, no one knows what they were, or why ancient civilizations might have created them. Archaeologists have excavated around the trench, and have not found any artifacts that you would expect from the remains of a colony. 

They are not built in a way that is useful for defensive purposes. The best guess is that they were the same ritual gathering place as Stonehenge, but, the mystery still continues.

8. Giant Snakes

Giant Snakes: More than 70 different types of snakes are found in the Amazon, ranging from small ones to very large ones, but stories of very large specimens are common throughout the region and it is possible that there are some monsters that are there. 

Haven't met yet. During an expedition in 1906, Percy Fosgett discovered a large-scale snake, which was shot on the banks of the Rioabuna - one that measured at least 62 feet long. 

He had also heard stories of a snake 70 feet long, but these are at the lower end of being suspected within the forest. 

There is a long talk of the species of the original tribes, which are 6 feet wide, with heads rising to 160 feet. And for those of you who speculated, the largest known species of snake in the region is much larger than the green anaconda. 

It is the largest snake in the world by mass and they can grow up to 15 feet. If true, it would be a formidable hunter. This giant snake is known as Yakumbam, for such a large creature, evidence of its existence is still scarce. 

Obviously, this is very prudent. However, there are plenty of accounts of encounters, such as a 115-foot tall snake that attacked a tugboat in 1948 and a 2009 photo believed to be a snake that is 131 feet long. 

Although Yakumama seems more myth than fact, fossils of large snakes up to 42 feet have been found, so there is certainly a possibility that they may be much larger than any discovered so far. This could be the next major discovery made from such an unexplained space.

9. Ancient Civilizations

Ancient Civilizations: Ancient civilizations have been documented throughout South America, but the Amazon is an area where people thought it was wary of spreading. 

Evidence is rapidly emerging that this may indeed be the location of one of the greatest civilizations ever! At that time, there was hardly any forest. 

The two-acre hill, once called Montregrande, was given weight for this notion. Locals digging there found artifacts that were more than 1,000 years old, and a complete pyramid of the site was excavated, built by a long-forgotten civilization that was more than 3,000 years old. 

This was not only a rare occurrence. The civilization that built it around 1,000BC is believed to have been built and rebuilt for the 8th consecutive time. 

At its peak, it was thought that about 5 million people lived in the Amazon Basin, all to worship in the settlements surrounding the giant pyramids. 

Virtually all the evidence has been covered by the forest, in addition to which human remains have occasionally been discovered. 

Perhaps one of them was the Lost City of Z !! Was it really the site of one of the first advanced human civilizations? Maybe, but it is very difficult to find out!

10. El Dorado

El Dorado: Amazon's biggest secret is probably ... El Dorado. The mythical city of gold has been talked about since the 16th century when Europeans first turned to the New World. 

His discoveries for the city cost incredible amounts of money and sacrificed hundreds of lives, but to no avail. The phrase "El Dorado" actually means "guided forest", and was a surname given by the Spaniards to the chiefs of a tribe in the Andes that is now Colombia. 

He was always seen covered with gold dust, gold earrings, gold nose rings, and gold plates on his chest. The ceremony involves throwing gold and gems into a lake to please your god. 

The tribe was eventually overthrown by another, but the Spaniards found the lake and drained it so dry that they were able to retrieve hundreds of gold objects, still believing they were to be found in the deepest parts. 

They believed that there must have been a place from where all this wealth and gold came, and thus began this legend. And seek the legendary city. 

Perhaps it is just that, the dream of explorers who wanted to get untold wealth, or perhaps there is indeed such a place. 

With such thick flora, it is very possible that the city of gold is completely buried, and just waiting for one lucky person to stumble upon the greatest treasure of all time.
