Being lost in the jungle is HARD. But don't worry! By following these simple survival tips, you'll increase your chances of survival by a teeny-tiny bit!

1. Be Dwayne Johnson.

If you want to survive in the jungle, you'll need to be Dwayne Johnson. If that's not possible, try your best to have his muscles.

2. Dress appropriately.

Wear clothing that's comfortable and easy to move around in – especially when you have killer dance-fighting skills. And if your most comfortable outfit is a cut-off shirt and short shorts then, hey, you do you!

3. Always carry a flamethrower.

It's always a good idea to have a flamethrower on hand for warmth, signaling, scaring away predators, or just looking like a badass while riding a motorcycle.

4. Save your energy.

Don't waste valuable energy on unnecessary tasks. You'll need it for the important stuff, like fleeing from a rhino stampede.

5. Get by with a little help from your friends.

Your friends are the key to survival, and if one of your friends is Dwayne Johnson, then piggyback rides are the key to survival.

6. Bring an expert with you.

Surviving in the jungle is WAAAAAAY easier if you have an expert with you who can just tell you what to do all the time. Bonus points if the expert is Nick Jonas!

7. Remember: safety first!

Your judgment becomes impaired when you're hungry, thirsty, tired, or even just stressed. When you're not thinking clearly, remembering basic safety rules can be the difference between life and death!

8. Always be thinking one step ahead.

Survival is about calculating your next move. When in doubt, dance it out like a dance fight scene in slo-mo.

9. Try really hard not to spontaneously combust.

You can follow every survival tip in the world, but if you suddenly burst into a ball of flames, you don't stand a chance.

10. NEVER trust hippos...

STAY. AWAY. FROM. HIPPOS. They are, without a doubt, the jerkiest jerks in the jungle. Avoid at all costs.

11. ...and no matter what happens, NEVER LET THEM SEE YOU CRY.

Stay calm and keep your wits about you, and you might just make it out of this (maybe...probably not, but maybe)!!!
