40 Times Nature Was Scarier Than Any Horror Film

Published 4 years ago

There’s nothing more relaxing than taking a stroll in a forest on a warm summer’s day. The sun is shining, the birds are singing and there’s not a single cloud in the sky – it’s moments like these than make us think that Mother Nature is in complete harmony and you almost forget about all the dark and creepy things that hide behind this peaceful facade.

The reality is that sometimes nature is far from peaceful and is more like a horror movie instead of a rom-com. From cabbage patches that look like Alien eggs to spiders in places where they shouldn’t be, check out all the times Mother Nature scared the life out of people in the gallery below!

#16 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.

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
