Nature is an elusive, unpredictable, magnificent and wild creature that cannot be tamed. There's so much about our beautiful Earth we've come to discover, yet we have barely scraped the surface of it. We have found uncanny things in the sky, underwater and almost on all the five essential elements of life. We are sure, our Earth is fascinating but creepy... very creepy.
These facts about our planet will scare the hell out of you and will make you want to lock yourself up in your bathroom and swallow the keys!

Its a snake with a spider tail. Horrifying, isn't it? It uses the spider-like tail to attract prey (usually birds) to come closer.

This is a Red lip bat-fish. These strange looking fish have long and sharp nose and they also look like they put a lot of lipstick on their lip. As it doesn't swim very well so it walks around the ocean floor fabulously.
These "antlers" you see above are caused by a fungal infection due to the parasitic fungus Cordyceps after all of the tissue in this tarantula's body has been replaced. Some species actually have the ability for mind control and can turn the hosts into zombies to spread the infection.
It is immune to Man-o-war jelly fish sting. Blanket octopus will RIP OFF the stingers of Man-o-war easily. You wanna know how it breeds? The male fills a tentacle with sperm, then rips it the hell off and gives it to the female. If humans did that, it would be like- No no.. Let's not mate. I have changed my mind!
