Panoramic pictures can be breathtaking if done right - a spectacular view stretching beyond the scope of peripheral vision, all in one frame. When left up to phone-wielding amateurs, however, they turn the panorama photo world into a warped, mutated circus of fear.

Since a panorama is just a collage of images stitched together seamlessly to appear as one large panoramic view image, the process of producing one must be handled slowly and with a steady hand. It also requires any elements being captured in the vista to stay completely still, since movement is the cause of all epic fails in the panorama department. If one element budges even slightly from the position, it held in the previous frame, by the time it all fuses together, you're left with nightmarishly funny photos.

Check out some of the funny fails that happened while attempting to take a panoramic picture Bored Panda could find below, and don't forget to add yours!

Even rarer than the catapede, the doggopede is close to extinction as its natural prey (the catapede) has become hard to find.

The alps are home to some endemic species. Here we see a sight of the twolegged headhopper. A male in its prime. They are known for sneaking into human homes and steal whatever they can find, although a preference for footwear has been reported.
