Full with poisonous snakes and thousands of pigs, here are five most horrible places on Earth Full with poisonous snakes and thousands of pigs, here are five most horrible places on Earth

News24xx.com - Our planet is the only place in our solar system that can sustain our life. But surprisingly, there are many places on this planet that are very uninhabited. Whether they are uninhabitable due to their natural state or because of the bad things we have done to our environment, there are some places you should not visit or even visit.


These are the 5 places that are the most uninhabitable places on Earth.


1. Ilha da Queimada Grande
Generally known as Snake Island, the island is full of ving lancehead gold venoms that are very venomous with one snake per square meter.
 
Snake Island was once part of the Brazilian mainland until it was isolated from the continent 11,000 years ago due to rising sea levels. The rising water made the snakes was trapped on the island when it covered the land connecting it with the land. Very venomous and highly endangered golden lanceheads thrive on this island because there are no basic level predators on the island.

Scientists estimate that up to 4,000 snakes live on an island of 110 hectares, with some reports suggesting that there is one snake per square meter. This means that almost every step you take on Snake Island, you may experience face-to-face meetings with the most dangerous snakes in the world. The snake is reportedly responsible for 90% of people that died related snake in Brazil.

The island is closed to the public and access is only available to the Brazilian Navy and selected researchers.


2. Iron Mine Mountain, California
The Iron Mine is the most acidic source of water on the planet. Water from the mine has a pH value as low as 3.6, with total dissolved metal concentration as high as 200 g / l, and sulphate concentration as high as 760 g / l.
 
Also known as the Richmond Mine in Iron Mountain, Iron Mountain Mine is a mine located that near Redding in northern California. It is famous for iron, silver, gold, copper, zinc, and pyrite mining from the 1860s to 1963.

In the 1890s, a company called Mountain Copper established a 4,400-hectare mine at the site. They started supplying sulfuric acid to a refinery in the Bay Area. They became the largest copper mine in California in the 1900s.

Twenty cavities of the size of an office building were drilled into the rock. Excessive mining activity on the site ends up cracking the mountain. This, in turn, exposes the underlying mineral for contact with water, rainwater, and oxygen. They are combined to create a toxic runoff. The result is the worst acid concentration in the world, about 500 times more toxic than other mines.

NASA once sent a robot to the mountain and no one saw the machine again or collected scientific data from him. The water is so acidic that it can dissolve the fabric and burn the skin, making it one of the most uninhabited places on Earth.


3. Big Major Cay, Bahamas

Big Major Cay is an uninhabited island. The island is inhabited by wild boar colonies that live on the island and in the surrounding waters.

It is said that the pig might have been dropped on the island by a group of sailors who wanted to go back and cook it. The sailors never returned and the pigs withstood the excess food thrown from the passing ships. One legend says that the pig survived the shipwreck and managed to swim to the island, while others claimed that the pig had escaped the nearest small island. Others suggest that pigs are part of a business scheme to attract tourists to the Bahamas.

Some experts believe that the phenomenon of pigs living on an island is an anomaly. This is because pigs do not normally live on beaches. Also, even though pigs do not enjoy the warm heat from the sun, these pigs at Big Major Cay gladly risk the tropical Bahaman sun to greet tourists. The pigs appeared on the island first in 2001. Their population has increased from seven in 2011 to 20 as of 2013. The island is approximately one square mile in size and has three natural springs that provide fresh water for drinking. The beach is protected by neighboring islands from large waves caused by tropical storms leaving the waters safe for the pigs to swim.


4. Danakil desert

The Danakil desert is called "the meanest place on Earth" by National Geographic. This desert is one of the hottest and most arid places on Earth. This desert is filled with sand, salt, heat, and volcanic activity.
 

The African desert of Danakil is adorned with active lava, sulfur hot springs, and salt lakes that make it one of the most difficult places to live in. Temperature is very hot to reach 145 degrees Fahrenheit. It also receives only 100 to 200 mm of rain per year and is also one of the lowest places on the planet, at 410ft (125 m) below sea level. These factors make it one of the most unfriendly environments in the world.

Even under such harsh conditions, the desert is home to some Afar, who depend heavily on salt intake in the desert for their livelihood. They mine the salt sheets that surround the Danakil Desert. They then loaded the salt plate with a camel and traveled two miles to the nearest town to release the cargo and sell the salt.


5. Kabwe, Zambia
Kabwe has been called the most poisonous city in the world. Too much tin dust on the ground and metal in the water due to extensive mining.

Kabwe is the most poisonous city in the world according to polluters. Mass lead poisoning has damaged the brain and organs of other generations of children. The level of lead in blood in children in Kabwe is also known to be very high with a majority of over 45 micrograms per deciliter. The content of lead in high blood has the potential to cause brain damage, liver, and hearing. Some of them are over 150 micrograms per deciliter, where the point of death is the most likely outcome. The security limit is five micrograms per deciliter.

Until 2015, NGOs have started cleaning the first house. The project is funded by Terrre des Hommes of Germany and sent by Environment Africa and Pure Earth. More than 120 homes have land in their yards replaced with clean soil from elsewhere.
