I'd be more concerned over getting eaten in Germany.

But don't let any possible fear stop you from jungle exploration. Do keep us posted when you return. And if you don't, well...I guess we would have our answer, wouldn't we?
In some jungles of Thailand, one might exercise a bit of caution in jungle exploration, not from fear of cannibals, but from some of the fauna that live there. Forested jungle areas around the peninsula, in the national preserve of Khao Yai (east of Saraburi), and forested areas in the hilly Northern provinces of the country, can be extremely dense. Those are perfect hiding areas for large snakes, tigers, wild boar, elephants, bugs, etc., and perfect places to easily get lost. The tiger population is seriously endangered due to poachers, but some still exist in such dense habitats. Wild banana plants, other large leafed plants, vines and bamboo, can make it hard to see through the vegetation. The video below (courtesy of Jungle Joel) gives an idea of just how densely thick some of these jungles can be as seen from a road. This place is located by Kata Beach in Phuket. Nearby province of Krabi also has some very dense areas.
