10 Photos From Nature That Prove the World is Scary
Mother of Nature is glorious. With a wide variety of flora and fauna making up ecosystems, some questionable-looking plants and animals make us wonder why they exist. From spiders hiding in strange places to crabs joining a barbecue, nature can be very scary. Join us as we take a look at 45 of the scariest photos, courtesy of our beloved Mother Nature.
Fingers or mushrooms?
Imagine walking in the woods and coming across this terrifying sight. No one would blame you for thinking you came across a dead body. You’re actually looking at a fungus called “dead man’s fingers.”
2: A flock of birds… or not?
This photo requires a second look to understand what is really happening. This is not a flock of birds, but hundreds of flies caught in the web made by a rather large spider.
3: The jaw of death
Geese are generally beautiful creatures, at least until they open their beaks, that is. This goose opened its beak, revealing a rather scary-looking mouth, with what appear to be razor-sharp teeth. What a sinister image!

5: Honey, go get the flamethrower!
There are spiders and there are hunting spiders. High-pitched screams of terror! This huge spider was photographed in a house in Australia.
6:Snake in the toilet
You wake up in the middle of the night, eager to go to the bathroom, you stumble, in a sleepy haze, you turn on the light and see this not-so-little friend staring at you.
7: Blending in with nature
Camping can be a great way to get outdoors and experience all that Mother Nature has to offer. But when you wake up on a beautiful morning, wondering why your tent is dark, and you see this… we’re sure it’s enough to put you off camping for life.
8: Things that go bump in the night
Hearing strange noises at night is enough to scare anyone. But the person who took this photo probably got the scare of her life when she came face to face with a large brown bear. While she probably expected to see a dog, one can only imagine his reaction when she turned on the porch light and saw this guy.
9: What a beautiful puppy!
Have you ever seen a snail that big, like the size of a puppy or a small dog? The African snail is one of the largest in the world and is a popular pet for many people.
10 : Eel vs. Blowfish
This moray eel bit off more than it could chew when it decided to make a meal out of a puffer fish. They are known to expand in size to protect themselves from predators. This must have had a delayed reaction to being eaten by the eel, as it began to inflate inside its mouth, resulting in the death of both creatures.
