One of the most incredible things about nature is that it’s completely unpredictable. Just when you think you’ve seen it all, it shows you something so utterly bizarre that it doesn’t even seem real.
So it seems that, no matter where you’ve been and what you’ve seen, there’s always a new way to be shocked by the wonders of the natural world. From otherworldly sea creatures to anthropomorphic wood, the Earth possesses a never-ending stream of oddities that are more horrifying than beautiful.
Here, we’ve gathered several of the most extreme examples. Each one is enough to make you say “nope!”
1. This photograph might appear to be the first evidence of bodies being dragged into the entrance to hell, but, rest assured, it’s not. Instead, it’s the lip of an active volcano with some oddly dried lava. Let’s just hope there’s not people trapped under there!
2. Either this is one bizarre crab-human hybrid or it’s a gigantic crab who’s found a new home inside of the most terrifying neighborhood. This is why we need to be careful with our trash—it could end up as the shell of a monstrous nightmare-crab!
3. Apparently, when a retail store owner showed up to work one morning, this frog was lying withered and dead on the ground. When the woman returned to clean it up, the water had brought it back to life. Yeesh! Zombie frogs!
