When Animals Attack!

We like to think that we live in relative harmony with the wild and dangerous creatures around us, but sometimes nature (or science) reminds us that there are bigger, badder creatures on this planet-and some of them want to eat us. Some are tiny and come in large numbers, some are large and have sharp claws, and some hide in deep waters and have many rows of sharp teeth, such as the airborne predators in Sharknado.

Check out these spine-tingling films about when animals (or lizards or arachnids or...) attack!
