One of the internet’s advantages is that you can always find something to match your mood. Are you looking for interesting facts or a movie? Or perhaps something to entertain you? If you’re interested in the latter, we have some disturbing animal photos that are sure to give you goosebumps. We want to forewarn you that they might be a little scary, but we hope you like them nonetheless!
Gloves Are Coming Off
Although you may not like cats, it’s impossible to ignore how adorable the plush pads beneath their feet are. Usually pink and supple, this part actually enables cats to move stealthily.
It is worth noting that the paws of a Sphinx cat are different from other cats. At first glance, we mistook something to be a bat, which startled us. We apologize and want to assure you that we mean no harm.
Cult of Eels
Opinions about eels are split among the masses. Some people do not like to eat them due to their slippery, slimy texture, strange appearance, and long antennae. Would you be willing to try eating an eel?
After looking at this image, we can confidently say that we will avoid swimming near bodies of freshwater where eels reside, even though they may be considered harmless. The mere thought of swimming alongside them gives us goosebumps, as they resemble Green anacondas.
A Fishy Proposal
Every couple’s proposal is one-of-a-kind. After all, to each their own, isn’t it? While extravagant flash mobs might appeal to some, others may prefer a more understated candlelit dinner approach.
Why not let someone propose using lobsters to spell out “Said Yes”? Although there may be an unpleasant odor, it could be considered endearing. Perhaps for a fisherman, this would be the ideal proposal.
We introduce to you the Sheepshead fish, just when you believed nature couldn’t become more unsettling. With their robust teeth structure, they can easily pulverize and chew their food, which largely comprises of mollusks and other creatures with shells.
While it is very interesting to see a fish with teeth similar to humans, it can also give us a sense of discomfort. However, there is no need to be concerned since Sheepsheads do not pose any danger to humans. Despite their intimidating appearance, they are not as frightening as they appear.
Portal to Hell
High-velocity winds tend to greatly appeal to dogs. Isn’t it delightful when you observe a nearby automobile on the highway, and a dog is sticking its head out of the window?
The dog’s mouth is wide open and it looks very happy with the wind blowing into its face. However, taking photographs of Great Danes in that position is not recommended. This is because Great Danes have a lot of skin around their mouth due to their large size. So, when a leaf blower blows directly into their mouth, it becomes very uncomfortable for them.
Blood Sucking Madness
Mosquitoes are tiny insects that take blood from animals, and they are often considered annoying. Entomophobia is a fear of these insects that some people experience, and we apologize if you are one of those individuals.
Don’t worry, there are no giant mosquitoes that are taking over the world. The insect seen in the image got too close to the camera lens. Nonetheless, we would prefer not to witness this insect again.
Not only humans, but also other species can be born with mutated body organs. Although chicks are usually very adorable as babies among all animals, we have an image that could potentially change your perspective.
This chick was born with a birth defect causing it to have four legs instead of two. From the front, it looks cute and furry like any other chick, but when picked up, its abnormality becomes apparent.
Creepy Yet Cute
Ava Max likely had this bird in mind when writing the song “Sweet but Psycho” due to its button eyes, but looking at it for too long can be unnerving and cause feelings of fear.
It is completely reasonable that these animals are referred to as Ghost Birds due to their sinister-looking eyes and pointed beaks. It would be wise to avoid interacting with them both during the day and at night.
Two Predators in One
Just when we thought a crocodile or hippo couldn’t be any more fearsome, a combination of the two was created. Although the liger is a favorite, the sturgeon is definitely not welcome in our books.
Sturgeons have a crocodile-like, prickly exterior paired with the broad head of a hippopotamus. They can reach lengths of up to six feet and are sought after as a source of freshwater fish. While they may appear menacing, causing dread in some humans, they do not actually intend to harm us.
Check This Mouth
One of the strangest fish to ever exist has been discovered from the depths of the internet. The fish has lips that resemble those of the Kardashians and a peculiar set of teeth.
The type of sharks known as Squaliform have sharp teeth resembling blades that can be found on either the upper and lower jaws or solely on the lower jaw. It is advisable for enthusiastic Redditors not to anthropomorphize this fish as it is capable of biting.
Supermodel of Dogs
It is interesting how frequently animals are noticed to bear a resemblance to famous personalities. Similarly, some animals may resemble humans, as can be observed in this instance of a dog that looks remarkably human-like to its detriment.
With a coat that shines magnificently and gorgeous blue eyes, this animal’s appearance could rival that of a supermodel’s. Observe their intense gaze! It’s safe to assume that all the female dogs would be smitten with this magnificent creature.
Counting Sheep at Night
When we have trouble falling asleep, we sometimes think of counting sheep in our minds. Even though this technique seems like it’s only for kids, it has helped a lot of people. But after looking at this picture, we think it could result in the opposite outcome.
Our intention is to emphasize that the sheep here are quite eerie and unsettling that the mere sight of them before going to sleep could prevent us from sleeping all through the night. Do you think we’re being overly sensitive or do you share the same feeling of being spooked by them?
Needless to say, the Slenderman caused some of us to have pretty scary nightmares as a kid. If you thought the skinny legend wasn’t enough, here’s his canine companion.
Greyhounds are popularly referred to as the cheetahs of dogs due to their impressive quickness and vivacity. Despite their willingness to be your laid-back companion, they possess the ability to reach speeds of up to 72 mph, which explains their elongated and slender limbs.
Giant Catfish Turned Dinosaur
Giant catfishes, despite their size and tainted reputation, are not capable of eating humans. We thought we’d start with that piece of information so that you would know not to feel threatened.
Although it was labeled a “dinosaur” due to its massive size, this particular fish was discovered in a German lake. Did you realize that these enormous fish can grow to be as big as a grizzly bear? However, there’s no need to panic because they possess the gentle nature of a teddy bear.
Stairway to Heaven
Horses sleep standing up. Dolphins like to keep an eye open to catch some shuteye. Yet, sperm whales may be one of the oddest sleepers in the animal kingdom. These gentle giants like sleeping in groups near the surface of the water.
Here’s the catch: they sleep in vertical positions, which may make you think they are deceased and simply floating mid-water. Scientists have found that sperm whales are amongst the least sleep-dependent animals, only sleeping for 10 to 15 minutes at a time.
Don’t Shed the Fur
Dolores the bear and a bunch of other female bears were suddenly affected by hair loss at a German zoo. Experts believed that it may have been caused by a genetic disorder, but the animals didn’t seem to be suffering from any other diseases.
The Demented Guard
It’s beyond us why people don’t like cats. They’re moody and fabulous all at once. Though, this photo might be a good indication as to why some people are so opposed to felines.
Imagine watching a scary movie on TV late at night and then coming across those scary eyes as you turn to grab the remote. We’d be spooked for months after. We might even need a permanent cuddle buddy to get through the night.
Mind Numbingly Terrifying
Many of us loved sock puppets growing up. These low-maintenance toys could entertain kids for hours. But beware! This is one sock puppet you do not want to cross paths with. Sharks have gotten a bad name for their exaggerated natures shown in movies.
Naturally, people jump when they hear this is a Frilled Shark. Looking like a cross between an eel and a shark, Frilled sharks are slow and unorthodox members of the Shark family. They swim below the surface of the water and pose no threat to humans.
Ready to Fight
Gazelles are adorable little jumpers that will steal your heart with their glassy eyes and thick coats. The one exception may be giraffe gazelles, also known as Gerenuks. Much like their name suggests, these antelope species like to stand on their hind legs when searching for greens to munch on.
Their heads are much smaller in comparison to the body. A stark contrast to their overall structure is their taut muscles. When captured from the right angle, a Gerenuk looks ready to fight you in the boxing ring.
What is your opinion on primates? Some people love them, others can’t stand them due to their eerie resemblance to humans. At times, we forget that we are but evolved forms of these animals.
Though not generally hostile, apes hold the power to rip a human to shreds. While the Orangutan is just as capable of hurting people, they’re known as being gentle giants for the most part. Try not to judge them too harshly!
A fellow Australian would recognize Rosie the shark anywhere. The very deceased great white was preserved at the Crystal World Exhibition Centre in Devon Meadows, Australia.
Sadly, the park shut down in 2012, and Rosie was left to become a loner zombie fish. With her killer teeth protruding, Rosie is there to give every kid (and even some adults) nightmares. Are you frightened by her? It’s okay to say yes!
If you’re a cat lover then this next picture won’t scare you. If anything, you’ll find it cute. But for those who are more dog friendly, cats are known to be creepy animals that stare into your soul.
We’re presuming the person who took this photo is not the biggest cat person. The blunt caption is a dead giveaway. Truth be told, we’re kind of on their side. Those are the green eyes of gremlins!
Footballer on the Loose
The ocean is terrifying, to say the least. Just think of all the creepy, spine-chilling animals living near the bottom of the sea bed. Deprived of light, these aquatic animals have gotten used to the darkness which has deepened their outer color as well.
What you see in the picture is a Football fish, a kind of deep-sea anglerfish found in subtropical and tropical waters of the Pacific, Atlantic, and Indian oceans. This one, in particular, is a predator that washed up on a Californian beach.
We’ve seen too many weird animal puppets on the internet, but this time, we feast our eyes on a live dog that seems to have been turned into a puppet.
The dog was at the dentist when this was taken and it’s almost as if it knew that his teeth needed to be shown. What could have been a cute moment turned into an oddly terrifying one — thanks to the puppy’s lifeless eyes.
Transparent Jelly Frogs
Frogs are known to be cute and harmless creatures but these jelly-like frogs that have been diaphonized are just wild. We can see all their organs inside and we don’t necessary want to.
Although deceased, these frogs have been preserved through a method that gives scientists a view of their organs and bones while maintaining tissue integrity. We for sure don’t want to be scientists after this!
One Redditor named these guys “horrible little muppet men” and we couldn’t agree more. Falcon chicks are rather goofy-looking, so we would probably start to feel uneasy if we had those beady eyes fixated on us.
Also, the creepiness is amplified here as there are so many eyes staring at you all at once. And heaven forbid they peck at us with those sharp beaks. We’d run so fast it would be like our bottoms caught on fire.
A naive Twitter user thought it would be hilarious if they stuck a pancake on their cat’s head. After all, “throw a cheese at your cat’s face” was a hilarious viral trend a few years ago. Turns out, pancakes aren’t half as funny as cheese.
In fact, they can give you nightmares. The holes cut out to show the eyes and mouth of the cat makes this feline look like a cartoon villain out to take your life.
Firefox Has Frozen
Unlike alligators and special reptiles, foxes cannot hibernate in ice, so this little fella is pretty much gone already. It would have been sad had it not been for the open eyes.
If you’re familiar with the freeze scenes in Ice Age movie, then you may relate to animals getting frozen in real life, which is quite scary. There are many regions across the globe where extreme coldness leads to the freezing of animals in a particular position.
Peeping and Creeping
This is one of the reasons we love cats so much. It’s like they can sneak into spaces 1/10th their original size. However, when you pay attention to this cat squeezing its way out of a household vent, it’s rather disturbing.
Makes you understand better why they use the term “cat burglar.” Flexible by nature, cats can effortlessly cram in and out of smaller spaces. So, think twice before making your cat angry. After all, it has the intellect to plot your demise.
A Diver’s Nightmare
At first glance, a harmless mollusk named the Giant Key Limpet can be mistaken as an eye due to its intricate design, making it oddly terrifying for inexperienced divers. This limpet species is commonly found in the northeastern Pacific Ocean.
These are the biggest limpets out there and they eat algae to sustain themselves. They are virtually harmless to humans. Similar to abalone, Giant Key Limpets are edible, but could one really eat something like that? Debatable.
Don’t Swim Here
This is one of those pictures that make you do a double-take. What is that big brown patch in the pool? That’s a giant freshwater stingray, native to rivers and estuaries in Borneo and Southeast Asia.
They are capable of reaching up to 16.5 feet in length, including the tails. Some reports suggest finding giant stingrays weighing up to 1,300 pounds. However, this was never verified for obvious reasons. We’d be scared to even come near one!
Neighborhood’s Angry Grandpa
Every neighborhood has that one angry 60-something-year-old who absolutely hates being there. This is the man who probably has his doorbell rung eight times a day by the pesky kids running around, playing. Annoyed, he opens the door before spewing out a bunch of curse words.
That is exactly what this cheetah resembles. The growl and nose scrunch may be the best part. House cats do this all the time, reminding us that cheetahs are simply bigger cats.
