Some of the most disturbing animals on Earth
Atom.com has a great collection of some of the most disturbing animal on Earth. These animal aren't just scary-looking, but psychologically disturbing. My dad often quotes the Jethro Tull line "He who made kittens put snakes in the grass." Sometimes I think it's more like "He who made kittens also made the vampire squid", seen above. The story says that this thing has predators - I'd hate to meet them in a dark underwater alley.
This is a link to Part 3 - if the others are as compellingly terrifying we might have a series on our hands.
EDIT: Oh, and be warned. We're talking eyeball worms and giant spiders here. And oh no oh no the squeamish might not want to check out Parts 1 and 2. There are animals in there that are actually evil.
