The Brazilian wandering spider is one of the world’s deadliest arachnids. It also happens to be fairly aggressive and will go out of its way to bite you if you disturb it. The tarantula hawk — which is actually a wasp — is similar to the wandering spider in that they both deliver extremely painful bites/stings. Very rarely do the two ever meet, but anything is possible, and in the following video, these deadly creatures come across one another in the wild. Normally, tarantula hawks hunt tarantulas, so this one must have thought the Brazilian wandering spider would be as [More]
Picture this. You wake up on what seems like regular day. It’s a little cloudy, but that’s no big deal. You put the coffee on and take a stroll outside while it brews. When you get outside, you look up at the sky and notice something on a telephone pole nearby. Much to your horror, it looks like a massive group of spiders hanging out on an immense web. If this scenario sounds too far-fetched to be real, check out the video below. If you have even a slight fear of spiders, you might want to skip this one. (via [More]
googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DTAT_ATF’); }); The connection between twins is remarkable, if not a bit strange. Stories of twin telepathy have circulated the internet for years, from sharing pain to sensing each other from hundreds of miles away. Some of them even go as far as to consider themselves to be one person rather than two, like 42-year-old identical twins Paula and Bridgette Powers. The Australian women have been living together all of their lives, sharing a room, dressing alike, and creepily enough, speaking in unison. They say that it just comes naturally to them, but is it bizarre twin telepathy [More]
googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DTAT_ATF’); }); There’s not a bug spray on the planet that’ll make me feel safe from this thing. The world’s largest beetle, otherwise known as Dynastes hercules, is beyond creepy. Almost the size of a human fist, not only does it have a needle-like nose, but this sucker can fly. Should you come across one of these, we suggest that you run like the wind…unlike the person in this video. Sufficiently creeped out yet? Thought so. Everything is awful and life is full of pain!

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DTAT_ATF’); }); Can you imagine how horrible it must have been to live through the plagues in ancient Egypt? While they were all pretty bad, the worst one for me would have been the plague of locusts. If there’s one thing that I absolutely despise, it’s large amounts of swarming insects. Which is why I’m happy that I’m not a resident of Gimli, Manitoba, Canada this week. Their town has pretty much been taken over by a massive swarm of fish flies. While fish flies aren’t harmful, they can certainly create a mess if there’s enough of them. [More]
The sight of a pelican yawning is something you’ll never, ever forget — no matter how much you might want to. Most animals look super adorable when they yawn. But when a pelican yawns, it looks like something straight out of a horror movie. Their head rolls back, their neck folds inside out…Honestly, it defies explanation. You just have to see it for yourself. These pelicans aren’t trying to be creepy, they’re just sleepy! Watch as they casually display the most horrifying yawn in nature.

Some people might think you’re paranoid if you invest in a home security system. But the fact is that even if you don’t have a history of break-ins, it’s never a bad idea to be prepared. For evidence of this, I present the following video recorded on an admittedly terrible home security camera by Redditor drunle. In a post on the social sharing site, he says that the creepy figure in the video below is a regular stalker of his… I’d say it’s time to invest in some better locks. However, this isn’t the first time the YouTube user has [More]
googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DTBT_ATF’); }); This might make me a strange person, but I never kill spiders if I can help it. Though they have made me scream like a little girl with their fast, jerky movements, I believe that they are very valuable when it comes to pest control. However, I definitely won’t deny that these creatures can be completely terrifying. If you have arachnophobia, you might want to prepare yourself. The following freaky spiders will make you want to run away and never look back. 1. Why would you do that?! Reddit / Ragetablet 2. I definitely wouldn’t want [More]
Every culture has their own sacred death rituals, but some are far more frightening than others. Take the Torajan people, for example. On the Indonesian island of Sulawesi, dead bodies are seen very differently than they are in the States. Corpses aren’t actually considered to be dead until a water buffalo is sacrificed to accompany them into the afterlife. It takes years for some families to be able to afford the expensive ceremony, so many keep their loved ones inside their homes until they can. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBP_ATF’); }); But even after their deceased relatives are properly buried, some families [More]
If you’re like me and you panic every time something grazes your foot in the ocean, then you’re not going to like this. A huge swarm of small crabs was spotted by researchers more than 1,000 feet below the surface off the coast of Panama, stampeding like wildebeests across the ocean floor. At first, the team thought it was some sort of underwater cloud. They quickly figured out, however, that the mass was very much alive. The crabs have been identified as Pleuroncodes planipes, which are more commonly known as red crabs. Scientists aren’t quite sure why such a crazy [More]
