Science of Survival: Jungle survival

丛林求生
There are many killers, visible or invisible, in a jungle, but with these tips it'll be much easier to survive.

Mike’s machete is based on a Malaysian type called a parang, and it's favored by special forces like the British SAS.

It has three essential working parts -- The point and front area use for incising and for slicing; the middle part here where bevels out as here, have been left for your chopping and your cutting. And then this fine curve part right here is what we use for carving and whittling.

In the jungle, the machete is the most valuable survival tool. It is so useful Mike can survive with nothing else. No lighter, no water canteens, nothing.

So far, I had all the creature comfort at home for me. It's nice, just me and her. It's getting late. And without this hammock and mosquito net, Mike need to think about a different bed for the night.

Unfortunately, I am still in the low lands, which isn't an ideal for a campsite. But I am running out of daylights, so I have to go ahead and make ourself a hutch. So tonight we are gonna sleep in this swamp bed. All we have is a swamp bed and a frame. A swamp bed simply has 4 little tripods of a about 2-foot-long stick slashed together and then spread out.

You can use jungle vines to tie your tripods together. But Mike uses his boot laces.

Two 6-foot-long pieces of wood for your bed frame and about 20 planks to give you the flat part, for the A-frame all you have to do is four 6-foot pieces in the shape of an A in the front and a shape of an A in the back and then one 6 to 7-foot long piece for your ceiling / structure, lashing together with a simple knot. Lay much palm ground down for your roof. And you will be ready to go. So far, I have everything that we need to survive. And even though the machete is the most important tool out here for survival in the jungle, I want to show you that you can still get by without it.

Everything that I am going to use to make my hutch tonight is going to be the stuff I have found foraging around on the forest floor. That's why it is called the debris hut.

There's still plenty of daylight, but with no tools, Mike knows he needs extra time to build a secure dry shelter to keep him safe from the jungle and its night-time dangers. This tree right here gives me very good shelter on 3 out of 4 sized. So I don't have to worry about any big creatures coming out for me in the middle of the night.

Mike gets close into the tree right under its canopy for add a protection from the notoriously heavy jungle rains.

He makes a sleeping platform from logs to get him off the ground. This should keep him dry if water gathers beneath him.

First, some green stuff down from my bedding. And then just lays some sticks I've found lean about.. upper against..face the tree for kind of like a lean to ... and a big pretty much shelter for the night. It takes some work even though if you just picking stuff off the ground. That is probably why I have to stop to give you some time to make a camp. I am in my next hutch, my debris hut. And it looks pretty good from inside. Little a bit of hole right there. But most of it looks pretty watertight. So you are gonna fit pours down rain...should be pretty good. Now that is not a 5-star hotel night we got at night.

Everyone imagines that they know the dangers of the jungle. But Mike knows that the real killers out here are smaller than you might think.

There was a mosquito heaven out here. So I have to stay covered up. I couldn't even take my boots off. And add a slit quite underneath my scarf just build a breath if they were let fit. The bad thing about mosquitoes is the miserable itch feels they cause. It just all the diseases that they carry. I mean, there are Jaguar, anaconda, Kemen, piranha. It will be a sad thing to survive all that and just to die from some disease.

The bottom line is a tiny mosquito is more likely to kill you than any of the creature in the rain forest.
