you can grow tiny versions of those things like sea monkeys, only bigger and cannibalistic
I forgot what these are called. I heard they can inadvertently be added to fish tanks as an egg or larvae and do this when they get bigger. I had a nightmare one of these got into my tank. Nothing survived
Pure nightmare fuel....Good thing they only live thousands of feet under the ocean.
Of course he can just reach up and drag you down if he's in a bad mood...
Feel a tingle? It might be on the back of your neck right now;;;
poor guy doesn't know why everyone is running away
This made me shit my pants
Yeah. Pour one out for our little lizard homie.
Uncut penises, my biggest fucking fear!
Parasitic round worm exiting the host spider after it is sprayed with bug spray
Sperm Whale is a whale made of hundreds of thousand men who have contributed with their sperm into the ocean, some female whale catches them like the little bitch she is, and thus sperm whale was born.
what a stupid ass worm, it's fucking lunch is right in front of it's dumb face and the stupid mother fucker bumps into like three fucking walls trying to find the god damn lizard. Makes me wonder how these dumb little shits ever survive in the wild when their food isn't boxed in with them, but then the stupid ass lizard is just as fucking brain dead and just sits there like "maybe if i stand real still he wont be as hungry when he finds me." dumb fucking lizard that's now how this works! Jesus Christ nature is stupid.
Sperm whale is a cool guy and doesn't afraid of nothing.
Seriously tho its the only toothed whale we have left from memory, the last of the carnivorous hunting whales, also one of the loudest animals.
Really? Fuck it
We have spiders that big but the shape is all wrong, only the funnel web would possibly be even close to that large with that body shape but even then I highly fuckin doubt it. Also you wouldn't approach a funnel web like that retard.
They're like living teddy bears, but their newborns are goddamn horrifying.
Here's that testicle eating fish from sweden.
That's like expecting to be able to leave 4chan altogether. It's like watching someone on fire. Part of you wants to help, part of you wants to run, part of you wants to watch and the /b/ part of you suddenly craves bacon and smores.
We also have these. Tarantula Hawk. Their sting is the second highest on the pain index scale, second only to the bullet ant.
real, something to do with zygotes merging in a single egg, making a weird hermaphroditic lobster mutant.
Look at the lighting direction. It looks almost twice as thick as it really is due to the shadows. It looks like a common huntsman just chilling on that wall saying g'day mate to everyone passing by
all of my nope
heh heh heh
Nah the body/leg ratio is too fucked to be a huntsman, that fucker is fake. Although Huntsmen do jump and scare the shit out of you as you prolly know.
.gif too big to load here:
I'll bet you're fucking asian.
I was out for a road trip a few weeks back, and we hit a kangaroo. After inspecting the damage and deciding to head back, the fucking asian in the back seat goes "maybe we should turn around and get the kangaroo so we can eat it later"
I wish he was kidding.
Bees used to be fucking huge
>implying a few million litres of radioactive waste water is going to do shit to nature
Look at chernobyl, it's a fukken paradise for nature because humans can't really survive in the heaviest irradiated areas. The wildlife there just doesn't live long enough to develop cancer.
here are some giant wasp stings
the poison is quite potent
I wasn't going to china anyway
It's called a chimera. Basically, embryos get fused together at some point during development.
It can happen to people too. There was this woman who had her kids taken away for some reason and DNA testing showed that she had absorbed her dead twin's ovaries.
ALL SHIPS COME ABOUT 360 DEGREES. FIRE MAIN CANNONS!!! MOBILE SUIT TEAMS LAUNCH!!! COMPANY COMMANDERS UP FRONT GELGOOG AND ZAKU CANNONS STAY BEHIND AND GUARD YOUR SHIPS!!! FIRE AND EMERGENCY CREWS STAND READY!!! THIS MAY BE THE LAST FIGHT WE EVER SEE MEN SO HOLD NOTHING BACK!!!
Wasps just eat and kill shit
at least bees make honey and try to stay out of our shit, wasps give zero fucks and exist just to be dicks
what? no camel spiders?
There is an 80's sci-fi movie about some deep sea research lab where some dude is infected by something down there while out on an underwater walk or some shit and turns into some giant mutated crab creature.
Movie was great really.
so were dragonflies
based carboniferous period
Cool, they look like the same animal.
We have two types, paper wasps and european paper wasps, the first is painful the second is dangerous.
>pic related - Perth paper wasp
We have a large variety here in the states, but all of them are just painful, I don't think they are dangerous unless you have an allergy.
Even so I avoid these things like they're on fire.
Did it hide in your soda can? Because they do that. They love that sugary taste. And they can sneak in when you're not looking...
Horrible fucking idea son...
It'd be like that movie Teeth. Except far far worse...
Also...Behold. The Thing that should not be...
Looks like trilobites acted just like pillbugs do today
neat to observe the behavior of something that's been extinct for millenia
This microscopic little shit can survive dehydration, freezing, radiation, fucking space, hundreds of years, and it still keeps going.
Fuck yeah, Jeremy Wade.
Also, normally vegetarian pacu, found in Amazon and in this episode Papua New Guinea, in the Sepik River, where they ate everything in the river and started eating flesh instead.
Reminds me of my brother. As a kid he used to slap bees whenever they flew by. He got stung every single time.
Then after a long while of doing that I noticed he wasn't even reacting to getting stung. Apparently he had become immune to honey bee venom, so he didn't really feel their stings. He used that superpower to scare people by snatching bees out of the air and crushing them.
Then he tried that shit on a yellow jacket and it hurt like a motherfucker. Apparently they have a different type of poison than honey bees.
I want to hold it down and get a mould of that ass medallion. Start a civilization that uses 'em as money.
Best way to prevent counterfeiting, really. Nobody's got the balls to make the money themselves.
science has been hype for tardigrades for a couple years now, but it was cool to see NDT make others aware of them
They bite instead of stinging, unless i'm mistaken
Makes sense. Why would the body reacting to something that it's dealing with 24/7? Just a waste of resources to bother swelling up and itching over something inevitable and common.
Doesn't mean they aren't catching the skeeter funk though.
I kind of want to be exposed to it because fuck mosquito bites
Unofficial state bird of Alaska
I'm glad we don't share the planet with those huge fucks, just emu and ostrich.
These are called Demodex, and they're mites that live on everyone's eyelashes. They feed off of the dead skin cells and oil that collect in your follicles.
Demodex actually come out onto your face at night to breed, and then return to your follicles to lay up to 25 eggs.
Do not bother animals
Nope. Not in the slightest. Big ones, small ones, venomous ones, it doesn't matter. I kind of like them and ever since I was a little kid I would catch them.
Spiders are my kryptonite. Kill them. Kill them all.
Not an anaconda, probably an African rock python or Burmese python. And no, snakes don't freak me out, Got a 4 foot ball python chillin in the other room, had a few different kinds as pets over the years. Cool and beautiful critters.
Oh wow - I have those EXACT SAME collapsible boxes.
'Sup shittards, I'll dump some of my pets.
Wow, a ball python, that's so badass, you must be so cool and special.
does anyone afraid of tarantulas?
please ignore my pinky finger
Also you people sound fucking pathetic, get over yourselves.
Why would anyone be afraid of a G. rosea.
I raised a couple in a tank next to a tank of sea monkeys, occasionally giving them one as a treat
Triops >>>>>>>>>>>>>>> brine shrimp
>Because G. rosea isn't the most casual tarantula in the hobby.
>Because I don't keep them simply because I find them interesting.
Get on my level.
You should study Entomology some time. It's a fascinating subject with endless variety. For example, there are over 400,000 species of Coleoptera.
Dude, it's not fair. They can still envenomate your ass dead even after your best decapitation strike...
Reptiles in general give me the creeps, but this fucker here takes the win for hands down scariest fucker on the planet.
>can live up to 50 years
>venom strong enough to kill an elephant
>so badass it eats smaller snakes for breakfast
We got those up in the great lakes, fucking things leave giant holes on the sides of fish
They're non-aggressive, pretty, and people give them away all the time. I've been given 3 iguanas, a common boa, 2 ball pythons, a Soloman Island boa, tarantulas, emperor scorpions, a caiman, and god knows what else. Got rid of my collection awhile ago, just got this one from a friend. Nothing special, just a chill critter to lounge with. Sweet cobalt by the way.
I used to be scared as fuck of spiders, especially tarantulas and other shit like scorpions but I learned about them. It's pretty safe to hold them in your hand because the spider/scorpion thinks your hand is the ground, and they won't strike the ground... unless you wiggle your fingers in front of them
Well, I would never have raised them as food, I find stuff like this way too interesting. Even though kinda creepy, I am fascinated by all the former life on earth, especially the bizarre creatures roaming the oceans millions of years before the dinosaurs.
Fall in line.
>Got rid of my collection awhile ago
Did you dump it in the forest like most rednecks do?
>Sweet cobalt by the way.
That's not a cobalt, doesn't even remotely resemble one.
Why do people give you animals when you don't seem to know much about them?
so post a better one then
i just had a lot of brine shrimp from that hatch and was curious to see the triops hunt/kill live prey. Shits super fascinating, forms of life that havn't changed much in millions of years kind of freak me out.
Imagine this coming out of you.
>600,000 murders per year
including wars though?
Australians aren't allowed to keep non-native species, go figure.
But mosquitos don't directly kill other animals, they just transfer disease and parasites.
No, I already posted my reason to keep them earlier.
The only thing im afraid of in that pic is your finger.. it looks like it wants to murder the other 4
(Or at least threaten them)
That pain index scale is bullshit. Not enough people have been bitten by funnel webs. Pic related.
anything that survives dehydration is some tough shit
I gave them all to responsible people that would take care of them. Tarantulas aren't my thing and I never got into classifying them, just found out what they were, figured out how to care for them, and took are of them to the best of my abilities. Yeah, you're hardcore but you're also an annoying little prick to people who are trying to be friendly. See it all the time, anal retentive pricks think they're a demi god or something because they know critters better than people. never had any interest in being that guy. Obviously you did. Too bad, you seem to have a gift and could educate people on all kinds of critters instead of turning them off with a shitty attitude. Way to be a stereotype dude.
It's a trapdoor spider, they use it as shield in their burrow, as protection against wasps n shit.
What, like for food, or as pets or something?
Non-ausfag, never even seen a kangaroo
>I gave them all to responsible people that would take care of them.
I'm proud of you, sonny.
I'm just joking, get out of your battle-tank.
I remember reading about those in Nat Geo.
These monster stalk your eyelashes wiping out whole little villages of big-eyed children. So I had the nanytes go down to try and eradicate them.
You need those things to keep your eyebrows clean though.
He was my smoking buddy.
Poor guy washed up on the shore dead
Neat, so like big potentially-lethal cats with spring-legs? That'd be kind of cool as a pet.
Looks pretty real, but I haven't looked into it or anything
horseshoe crab pipe when
lol I thought you meant kangaroos
not entirely sure why
In Chinese cuisine the worm is stir-fried with vegetables, or dried and powdered to be used as an umami enhancer. In particular, the worm is considered an important ingredient in Shandong cuisine and is used in numerous recipes.
It is also used for fishing bait.
it's super late, or early rather, my thoughts aren't all together atm
Dial back the tude some son, You've got some cool shit and are apparently knowledgeable (assuming the pics are actually yours). You don't have to try and be a badass, In this case you actually are and people would be interested to learn from you. Hell, I would.
Snakes are not creepy, they are scary or menacing. Like, you see a snake, you think "I shouldn't mess with this motherfucker"
You see a spider or some of that shit that is in this thread, you don't think "I shouldn't mess with that", you think "I want to get the fuck out of here and burn everything in a one-mile radius"
RN here actually. When we get someone who has a small cockroach or other bug stuck in their ear, 99% of the time they beg you to knock them out as soon as possible because the sound of an insect scratching on your eardrum is worse than death.
I've seen people slam their heads on hospital walls and try to throw themselves through plate glass windows because every second of this experience is hell.
Tooth pain comes in 2nd place.
nah that was me, then i just had kangaroos on the brain when I read his post
Horseshoe crabs are awesome.
my friend has one of these as pets. he just pulls it out of his cage with his hand and lets it crawl all over his body. he is a braver man than i. i don't go to his house anymore
