Sun is shining, birds are chirping, and the living is easy. We’d like to think of nature this way. But it moves in mysterious ways and it’s called Mother Nature for a reason.

You see, upon a closer look, things are hella odd and creepy out there. Think of it as a horror movie of its own league starring sci-fi-like creatures, unusual anomalies, bizarre plants and animals, and sightings that push you to the brink of saying "I’m out."

Bored Panda has compiled a spine-chilling fresh list for your next nightmare. Get ready for sweaty palms and don’t say I didn’t warn you. Before you are done and safely out of this whole ordeal, there’s part 1, part 2, and part 3 waiting one click away. No NOPEs allowed after this point.

The Bald Eagle is one of the smaller eagles in the world so I'd suggest it's big for it's species whilst the wolf is small for it's.

Not an expert in N-A fauna, but isn't that a coyote? I'd say the snout is too narrow for a wolf and the ears are quite big. In that case, the size-comparison with an eagle isn't so far off. (It's still a big eagle)

That looks like an Eastern Coyote, not a wolf. They are bigger than Western Coyotes (being part coyote/part wolf/part dog) but are more average dog sized. I could be wrong, but I've seen eagles pretty close up and the proportions look right for that to be an Eastern Coyote. Also the "wolf" looks exactly like a coyote. Eagles are huge though...just not THAT huge. :)

Our planet is populated with both odd and amusing plants and animals. Some of them have been surrounded by myth and misunderstanding, and some we still know little about. David Attenborough’s series “Natural Curiosities” has revealed the remarkable evolutionary traits behind some of the most mystical wonders of the natural world.

Some of the quirky animals include flamingos, who survive in hot volcanic lakes by filtering out microscopic algae; salamanders that can regrow entire limbs; problem-solving crows that design intricate tools; and hippos, who secrete a vivid red mucus that acts as sunscreen.

In an interview with Radio Times, David Attenborough recounted the particularly peculiar case of a greenfly that’s nearly all female. “Inside they are already pregnant. And inside the baby that’s inside the mother there’s another one. So you’ve got three generations all in one animal.” As bizarre as it sounds, that’s a very common insect we don’t really think of much.

Nature Is Scary As Hell

Nature Is Scary As Hell

The Sandbox Tree also known as the "Dynamite Tree" grows exploding fruits. When fully mature, they explode with a loud bang and fling their hard, flattened seeds at speeds of up to 150 miles per hour and distances of over 60 feet. The shrapnel can seriously injure any person or animal in its path. As bad as this is, the exploding seed pods are only one of the ways that a sandbox tree can inflict harm.

The fruit of the sandbox tree is poisonous, causing vomiting, diarrhea and cramps if ingested. The tree sap is said to cause an angry red rash, and it can blind you if it gets in your eyes. It has been used to make poison darts.
