Scientists say they have discovered the largest boiling river in the Peruvian Amazon.
The river reaches up to 80 feet at its widest point and 15 at its deepest. It runs hot for four miles, reaching the boiling point of 100 degrees in some parts.
That’s hot enough to cause third-degree burns in a matter of seconds. Unlike expectations, the river is non-volcanic.
The thermal river is fed by both boiling and near-boiling hot springs. The river was discovered by Geoscientist Andres Ruzo.
