What the heck is going on down in Australia?
This beautiful land that I have always wanted to visit, has never been more TERRIFYING!
Or, maybe I’m just learning more about this land full of Jurassic creatures that haunt my nightmares.
Australia is known for having some WICKED spiders, and these REAL photos don’t disappoint.
They may completely creep you out, but they do NOT dissapoint.
Just imagine going into your backyard, and happening upon THIS site.
Or, better yet, imagine stumbling into your kitchen, and coming face to face with this giant beast.
And apparently, there is something called a Goliath Stick insect, and I may never go outside again.
Yes. It’s a real thing.
I thought that perhaps this photograph MUST have been Photoshopped, so I immediately shot my friend, who lives in Australia, a message asking if they really have bugs this size.
She verified that it is, in fact, a very real thing, and they hang out all the time in her garage.
It might be a harmless insect, but I’m just going to go ahead and say NOPE!!
Oh, the fun doesn’t stop there. We hear about cute kangaroos that hang out in the wilds of Australia.
But, nobody talks about the ones that look like they can eat your face off!
What about snakes?
Oh, they have snakes. Just about any size and variety you want, they have.
Big snakes, little snakes, giant snakes — if it haunts your nightmares, Australia probably has it.
Frogs and snakes? Yep, they got that, too.
Frogs eating snakes? SURE!! They can accommodate that phobia as well.
Now, this is where it gets into true nightmare territory.
If you don’t want to see true terror, look away. Once you see it, you can’t unsee it!
I present to you — the flying fox. Is it a fox? Is it a bat? YES.
Do I care that they only eat flowers and fruit? Nope.
If I know there is even a CHANCE that these are hanging around, you can totally count me out!!
But, wait! It gets better.
This picture is especially gruesome. It is like something crawled straight out of h***, and someone caught it on camera.
This is a snake — and it’s EATING a flying fox.
Nope and nope. That thing has human hands!!
Here are some bonus photos for you.
This is called a goana, and it can hang onto anything — even sides of houses.
Here you have your standard, everyday river croc.
I am never going in the water ever again.
Here is another shot of that juicy little frog munching down on its snake supper.
And, last but not least, I have NO CLUE if this is a blind snake or an earthworm. There has been some debate on the matter.
I don’t care WHAT it is, it can just stay the heck away from me!
