1. Wooden you like to know what this is?
This hornets nest formed around the head of an old wooden statue… and now it will be forming my nightmares for years.
2. Nothing scary here…
Just a mama centipede protecting her babies… it just looks like something that wants to kill you.
3. I wouldn’t want to be this guy’s dentist
Imagine having to put your hand anywhere near that! No thanks.
4. Is that… another foot?!
Eww it’s so tiny, I’m glad this isn’t a video because I don’t even want to know if it can move by itself!
5. It’s worse than the Chucky doll
It’s like the wasps go around looking for the creepiest place to make their nests on purpose!

Could be worse, I guess. It could be dripping blood.

I already told you, no more fishing, you don’t need to show me this fish with human-like teeth! Never again!
9. Imagine finding this in your garden
Oh, it’s just a caterpillar, not something that’s going to try to kill me… I think.
10. So many questions, but I don’t think I want to hear the answers
Those red teeth make it looks like it’s already given someone a vicious bite!
11. Thousands of fireants clinging together to escape a flood
Of all the things I WANT to escape a flood, I must say these are at the bottom of my list.
12. These used to be flowers
Now they wouldn’t look out of place at a funeral.

Imagine how terrifying it must have been to be driving along when that happened! I don’t even want to think about it.
14. Oh, fancy seeing you here!
See the blood on the guys finger? I think this parasite already tried to take a bite!

Nothing to see here, just shedding velvet… in the most hideous way possible!
20. Is this real or is it a prop from Star Trek?
I guess we should just be glad it’s not tribbles.
21. At least she looks happy to be here!
Stood atop this lava pit that looks like it’s devouring the souls of all living things.
22. That’ll teach you to go out onto the ice!
Someone found this drowned fox in the ice, cut it out and left it there as a warning to others considering walking out onto the ice. Well if that won’t scare you into staying safe, nothing would!
