While we are focused on the COVID-19 pandemic and worried about spreading the virus to others who could potentially die from it, death seems to be on our minds more often than not these days. Now I don't want to add to any stress you may be feeling about this but I did decide to do some research when I moved to Iowa on what animals I should be weary of when moving here.

To keep us all safe, I have compiled a list of 5 dangerous animals in Iowa that could kill you, thanks to some help from Only In Your State. Some of these may be obvious while others you may not have realized were in the area. Make sure to keep an eye out for all of these as they are all deadly in their own way. Also, sorry for some of the pictures, they creeped me out so guessing they did you as well. So let's get to it!
