7 Scariest Animals and Creatures in the world


7 Scariest animals of your nightmares If you’re creepy crawly phobias increase
with the number of legs they have as well as the size then now is the time to
probably gonna make a cup of tea or coffee and come back later this is the
Scolopendra gigantea also known as the Amazon giant centipede these unnaturally
large arthropods have 46 yellow legs and can grow up to around 35 centimeters in
length has about the same length was a man’s forearm they have a venomous bite
which were used to kill their prey which can be used the anything up to the size
of a mouse, bat, small snakes and birds whilst the bite is not fatal to a fit healthy
human it can cause severe pain swelling chills fever and weakness. Now if you’re
wondering how they catch bats well that’s quite clever really they go up in to
the Bats cave and then may hang upside down from the roof holding on with just
a few pairs of legs then they catch the bats as they fly past. These are now very
popular amongst collectors of exotic pets but just be aware they are known to
be very aggressive and also nervous. I think I’ll pass on that one and I’ll
stick with a budgie. Goblin Shark – This could well be Dobby the house elf’s
long lost aquatic cousin but it’s in fact the goblin shark and the name is really
rather apt with its huge nose appendage and protruding teeth making it look even
weirder but that’s not the only strange thing about the sharks. They live in very
deep waters normally in tropical areas close to the ocean floor and often
called living fossils because they’ve been around for more than a 125 million years. Because they live in the deep oceans between 40 and
1200 metres where there is almost no light they are sometimes called The
Vampire shark. Thier eyes are small and their skin is almost translucent with the
pinkish coloring coming from the oxygenated blood within their
capiliaries. They are normally up to about four metres in length but it’s
believed they can grow larger. The large flattened nose is covered in sensors
which can pick up extremely small electric field produced by it’s pray which
can be fish, squid, stingrays and crabs either on the sea floor or in a free
water however it’s real party piece are its jaws it catches its prey by rapidly
extending its entire mouth outwards. The flexible jaws are not part of the skull and
although some other sharks can push a joint out a bit this looks more like a
even extending mouth. Golden Orb Spider – The fear of spiders seems to be
inversely related to their size, little money spiders are quite cute, bigger house spiders are getting a bit scary but when you get into one’s like the Golden Orb
Weavers it’s enough to keep most arachnophobes a heart attack. These are
also known as giant spiders or banana spiders they are normally found in to
warmer climates around the world and are the oldest surviving spider species with
fossil specimens dating back some 165 million years.
They grow big enough to capture small birds in their webs and even half metre
long snakes have been photographed being captured and eaten. They get their name
from the color of a silk which shines like gold in the Sun. The yellow helps
camouflage the web in the shade and in the Sun the bright yellow shiny strands attract bees.
The spider itself can also adjust it’s pigment intensity relative to the
background light levels and also the color to help hide from the insects vision. Luckily these spiders are
relatively non-toxic to humans with a bite causing moderate pain and swelling
for about a day. Though the sight of the biggest ones at around 13cm or 5 inches across is enough to scare most people away. Which is ironic because they grow to
their largest size in urban environments probably because of a lack of predators
and parasites and the more abundant food supply due to artificial lighting. HagFish – Sometimes it seems as though nature is
trying to make the most ugly and disgusting creatures just a creep you
out. Take the hag fish for example the mouth
head alone look like the work of an over imaginative horror film special effects
department. These are the only creatures to have a skull but no backbone or jaws.
They have skin rather than scales and they are ancient. The only known fossil hag fish which is 330 million years old looks very similar to a modern day hag
fish. But it’s real scare factor is its ability to make slime are not just a
little bit you get by handling a eel for example the hag fish can make as much as 20 litres of slime in a minute and if that doesn’t get them out of a sticky
situation, to excuse the pun, they can wrap themselves into knots and scrape off the slime to make an escape. Hag fish are bottom feeders and their main diet is Polychaeta worms they also feed on the dead bodies of fish and other animals with sink down to the seabed
where they like to burrow into the bodies and eat them from the inside out bursting out like a certain Alien in the SciFi films. Tailless Whip Spider – If you crossed the ugliest spider with
an equally ugly scorpion then the mutant offspring would probably look like an Amblypygi
or the whip spider also known as the tailless whip scorpions. These twisted
creatures appear to be made out of the most unsettling portions of spiders,
praying mantis, crabs and daddy long legs and is a uniquely scary
looking product of nature. Their flattened bodies and legs range in size
from around 5cm up to a screaming inducing 25cm across.
They are found in the warmer parts of the world and I’m mostly nocturnal
living in tropical forests in tight dark spaces under logs and rocks and also in
dark caves where they are sometimes known cover the walls. Whilst these are
close relatives of spiders they are neither spiders nor scorpions and
although they have 8 legs only 6 are used for walking like crab and the
other two are sensory organs which are normally held out in front to find its pray which are things like
crickets, Beetles, caterpillar’s and small insects. These little critters
much look like with deadliest spawn of Satan but they are in fact harmless, well to humans anyway. They are non venomous but the claws can give you an nip like a crab.
It has 8 eyes but have poor vision and have to rely upon this sensory whips to find
their way around. These are also kept as exotic pets as well I think you need
quite a strong constitution to have these things in the house. Sea Pig (Cthulhu Larva) – With no eyes or face the abyssal sea
cucumber or Cthulhu Larva AKA Sea Pig lives in depth of up to 19,000 feet on the sea floor of a deep
oceans these sea cucumbers are related to starfish squatty little to tube legs, which they can inflate, they also have a giant mouth which they use to Hoover up the detritus falls
from the surface. They graze the ocean floor in groups of up to several hundred or
thousand at a time are often caught in the nets of deep sea trawlers. They’re not
poisonous and have no big scary teeth claws, so they pretty much
harmless but they do look as if you weird as heck. Aye Aye – If you were wondering where the makers of gremlins got their creature ideas from then you need look no further than the Aye Aye. Unlike the other cute members of the
lemur family, the Aye Aye looks like it hit every branch is it fell out of the ugly
tree. It has the wide staring eyes, weird extra large ears, and especially elongated middle
finger which they use to extract grubs from trunks and branches of trees
and they’re also not afraid of humans. Researchers in Madagascar reported
accounts that tell of individual Aye Aye’s strolling nonchalantly through the village streets and even walking right up to naturalists in the rain forest and sniffing their
shoes. However in their native madagascar they are seen as a harbinger of evil and
often killed on sight. It’s believed that the appearance of an Aye Aye predicts the death of a villager and the
only way to prevent this is to kill the Aye Aye and hang her body up to ward off
evil spirits. Good for villagers but not so for the Aye Aye’s thanks for watching and I hope you
