30+ Animals That Make Us Feel Uneasy in Ways We Cannot Explain

Gloves Are Coming Off

You can hate cats all you want, but you cannot deny that the soft padded flesh underneath their toes is beyond cute. Often a soft shade of pink, this area actually helps cats move without making a sound.

Interestingly enough, a Sphinx cat’s paws differ in this regard. We really thought this was a bat for a moment. Yikes! Please don’t hurt us. We come in peace!

Cult of Eels

The mass is divided on their opinion on eels. Would you eat an eel? Many despise them for their slippery, slimy texture paired with their weird body and long antennae.

It’s safe to say that after seeing this picture, we will never drift close to freshwater bodies where eels live. Even though they might be deemed harmless, we’d still wet our pants having to swim alongside them. They look like Green anacondas!

A Fishy Proposal

Proposals are unique for each couple. After all, each to their own, right? Some people might like extravagant flash mobs while others might want to keep it simple with a candlelit dinner.

If someone wants to propose by arranging lobsters to form the words, “Said Yes,” why not? Besides the terrible smell, it’s kind of cute! And maybe for a fisherman, this is a dream proposal.

The Teether

When you thought mother nature couldn’t get creepier, we present to you the Sheepshead fish. Their heavy dentition helps them to crush and grind their diet, which mainly consists of mollusks and general shelled creatures.

Fascinating as it is to observe a fish with a row of human-like teeth, it also makes us feel somewhat uneasy, doesn’t it? Not to worry though as Sheepsheads don’t harm humans. They look way scarier than they actually are!

Portal to Hell

Dogs are generally suckers for high-velocity winds. Don’t you just love it when you’re cruising on the highway and see a nearby car with a canine peeking out of the window?

Portal to Hell

It has its mouth open as the wind crashes into its face and makes it the happiest dog alive. Well, Great Danes should not be photographed for that purpose. Due to their large stature, they have a lot of skin near the mouth. So when the leaf drier hits its mouth, a portal to hell was opened.

Blood Sucking Madness

Mosquitoes… These pesky little creepers are blood-sucking thieves that feed off animals. They are so irritating that some people have a phobia of them, known as Entomophobia. If you’re one of them, we’re extremely sorry.

Also, not to worry, the world isn’t being taken over by giant mosquitoes. This happens to an insect that simply got too close to the camera lens. However, after this, we’d be happy if we never saw this insect again.

Four-Legged Chicken

Humans aren’t the only species that are born with mutated body parts. And while chicks are widely considered to be one of the cutest babies in the animal kingdom, we’re sure we can make you rethink that with this picture.

Four-Legged Chicken

Born with a birth defect, this chick landed on earth with four legs instead of two. When you look at it from the front, it’s the same adorable ball of fluff that everyone loves. However, when you pick the baby up, things get weird.

Creepy Yet Cute

This bird must have been what Ava Max was thinking about when penning the song “Sweet but Psycho,” but seriously, look at those button eyes. Now look away! We can’t stare for too long without feeling scared.

Creepy Yet Cute

So, it makes total sense that these creatures are commonly known as Ghost Birds. With their demonic eyes and sharp beaks, we’d stay clear of this animal. Whether it be day or night…

Two Predators in One

As if a crocodile and a hippo weren’t scary enough on their own, the world needed a hybrid creature. While we like the liger, the sturgeon is no friend of ours.

With the spiny body of a crocodile and the wide head of a hippopotamus, sturgeons can grow up to six feet long. They are hunted as freshwater fish. Though they look as if they want to hunt us humans. Eeeek!

Check This Mouth

From the abyss of the internet, we have found one of the weirdest fishes to ever exist. With lips similar to the Kardashians, this fish also comes with a strange set of teeth.

Check This Mouth

They are named Squaliform sharks and have a set of blade-like teeth on either both jaws or on just the lower jaw. Enthusiastic Redditors, please refrain from treating this fish as a human. It will bite you!

Supermodel of Dogs

It’s funny how often celebrities have been found to resemble animals. The case is also applicable the other way around, like this dog that looks way too much like a human for its own good.

Supermodel of Dogs

Being the owner of a very shiny coat and beautiful blue eyes, its features could give supermodels a run for their money. Just look at this piercing gaze! We bet all the female dogs would be swooning over him.

Counting Sheep at Night

When sleep is elusive, we often consider counting sheep in our heads. This method, although childish, has proven to be effective for many. However, we believe that after seeing this picture, the opposite effect could occur.

Counting Sheep at Night

What we mean is that the sheep look so creepy here that seeing them before bedtime could actually keep us up all night. Are we acting like big babies or are you also freaked out by this?

Mr. Slenderman

Needless to say, the Slenderman caused some of us to have pretty scary nightmares as a kid. If you thought the skinny legend wasn’t enough, here’s his canine companion.

Greyhounds are known as the cheetahs of the dog world for their incredible speed and energy. While more than happy to be your lounging buddy, they are also capable of running at 72 mph. No wonder they have such long and lean legs!

Giant Catfish Turned Dinosaur

Giant catfishes, despite their size and tainted reputation, are not capable of eating humans. We thought we’d start with that piece of information so that you would know not to feel threatened.

Though, this one found in a German lake was termed a “dinosaur” for its behemoth build. Also, did you know that these giant fish can grow up to be the size of a grizzly bear? Again, don’t be scared. They have the heart of a teddy bear.

Stairway to Heaven

Horses sleep standing up. Dolphins like to keep an eye open to catch some shuteye. Yet, sperm whales may be one of the oddest sleepers in the animal kingdom. These gentle giants like sleeping in groups near the surface of the water.

Stairway to Heaven

Here’s the catch: they sleep in vertical positions, which may make you think they are deceased and simply floating mid-water. Scientists have found that sperm whales are amongst the least sleep-dependent animals, only sleeping for 10 to 15 minutes at a time.

Don’t Shed the Fur

You thought bears were scary within all their furry glory? Wait until you see a furless one and it doesn’t leave your mind for three months straight. For many, a bear is nothing more than a missed opportunity at petting a fuzzy and alive stuffed animal.

Dolores the bear and a bunch of other female bears were suddenly affected by hair loss at a German zoo. Experts believed that it may have been caused by a genetic disorder, but the animals didn’t seem to be suffering from any other diseases.

The Demented Guard

It’s beyond us why people don’t like cats. They’re moody and fabulous all at once. Though, this photo might be a good indication as to why some people are so opposed to felines.

The Demented Guard

Imagine watching a scary movie on TV late at night and then coming across those scary eyes as you turn to grab the remote. We’d be spooked for months after. We might even need a permanent cuddle buddy to get through the night.

Mind Numbingly Terrifying

Many of us loved sock puppets growing up. These low-maintenance toys could entertain kids for hours. But beware! This is one sock puppet you do not want to cross paths with. Sharks have gotten a bad name for their exaggerated natures shown in movies.

Mind Numbingly Terrifying

Naturally, people jump when they hear this is a Frilled Shark. Looking like a cross between an eel and a shark, Frilled sharks are slow and unorthodox members of the Shark family. They swim below the surface of the water and pose no threat to humans.

Ready to Fight

Gazelles are adorable little jumpers that will steal your heart with their glassy eyes and thick coats. The one exception may be giraffe gazelles, also known as Gerenuks. Much like their name suggests, these antelope species like to stand on their hind legs when searching for greens to munch on.

Their heads are much smaller in comparison to the body. A stark contrast to their overall structure is their taut muscles. When captured from the right angle, a Gerenuk looks ready to fight you in the boxing ring.

Poor Primates

What is your opinion on primates? Some people love them, others can’t stand them due to their eerie resemblance to humans. At times, we forget that we are but evolved forms of these animals.

Though not generally hostile, apes hold the power to rip a human to shreds. While the Orangutan is just as capable of hurting people, they’re known as being gentle giants for the most part. Try not to judge them too harshly!

Not a Cute Piggie

The effects of a nuclear explosion are known to be horrifying. Such seems to be the case for an accident that took place in the Soviet Union that left the world shocked. One of the sad consequences was this mutated piglet.

Not a Cute Piggie

Honestly, we can’t look at its body for long without getting the chills. Poor little piggie. The radiation melted its body to such an extent that we don’t know where the head ends and the body begins.

Remembering Rosie

A fellow Australian would recognize Rosie the shark anywhere. The very deceased great white was preserved at the Crystal World Exhibition Centre in Devon Meadows, Australia.

Remembering Rosie

Sadly, the park shut down in 2012, and Rosie was left to become a loner zombie fish. With her killer teeth protruding, Rosie is there to give every kid (and even some adults) nightmares. Are you frightened by her? It’s okay to say yes!

House Cats

If you’re a cat lover then this next picture won’t scare you. If anything, you’ll find it cute. But for those who are more dog friendly, cats are known to be creepy animals that stare into your soul.

House Cats

We’re presuming the person who took this photo is not the biggest cat person. The blunt caption is a dead giveaway. Truth be told, we’re kind of on their side. Those are the green eyes of gremlins!

Footballer on the Loose

The ocean is terrifying, to say the least. Just think of all the creepy, spine-chilling animals living near the bottom of the sea bed. Deprived of light, these aquatic animals have gotten used to the darkness which has deepened their outer color as well.

Footballer on the Loose

What you see in the picture is a Football fish, a kind of deep-sea anglerfish found in subtropical and tropical waters of the Pacific, Atlantic, and Indian oceans. This one, in particular, is a predator that washed up on a Californian beach.

Marionette Puppy

We’ve seen too many weird animal puppets on the internet, but this time, we feast our eyes on a live dog that seems to have been turned into a puppet.

Marionette Puppy

The dog was at the dentist when this was taken and it’s almost as if it knew that his teeth needed to be shown. What could have been a cute moment turned into an oddly terrifying one — thanks to the puppy’s lifeless eyes.

An Eerie Sight

Hiking alone in the woods is terrifying enough without having to see skinned animals lying all around. A skinned bear has an uncanny resemblance to what a human would look like once skinned. Unfortunately, this is an example of illegally trapping and poaching animals.

An Eerie Sight

Poachers will skin the animals and leave the body to decompose in the middle of the open field. How sad is that? Come on humanity, let’s do better than this going forward!

Transparent Jelly Frogs

Frogs are known to be cute and harmless creatures but these jelly-like frogs that have been diaphonized are just wild. We can see all their organs inside and we don’t necessary want to.

Transparent Jelly Frogs

Although deceased, these frogs have been preserved through a method that gives scientists a view of their organs and bones while maintaining tissue integrity. We for sure don’t want to be scientists after this!

Falcon Chicks

One Redditor named these guys “horrible little muppet men” and we couldn’t agree more. Falcon chicks are rather goofy-looking, so we would probably start to feel uneasy if we had those beady eyes fixated on us.

Falcon Chicks

Also, the creepiness is amplified here as there are so many eyes staring at you all at once. And heaven forbid they peck at us with those sharp beaks. We’d run so fast it would be like our bottoms caught on fire.

Pancake Face

A naive Twitter user thought it would be hilarious if they stuck a pancake on their cat’s head. After all, “throw a cheese at your cat’s face” was a hilarious viral trend a few years ago. Turns out, pancakes aren’t half as funny as cheese.

Pancake Face

In fact, they can give you nightmares. The holes cut out to show the eyes and mouth of the cat makes this feline look like a cartoon villain out to take your life.

A Two-Headed Dolphin

It seems like the internet is divided on dolphins. One section cannot get over their intelligence and kind behavior toward humans while the others despise them for their tainted backstory with animals of their own kind.

A Two-Headed Dolphin

So, we can deduce that there are two parts to the story, just like this dolphin that washed ashore on a beach in Turkey. Scientists concluded that this case resembled human conjoined twins. Beyond creepy!

Firefox Has Frozen

Unlike alligators and special reptiles, foxes cannot hibernate in ice, so this little fella is pretty much gone already. It would have been sad had it not been for the open eyes.

Firefox Has Frozen

If you have watched the movie Ice Age, you may be familiar with scenes where some of the side characters are frozen solid. This is that but in real life, and it’s giving us the creeps. In many regions around the world, the cold gets so bad that it freezes animals in place.

Peeping and Creeping

This is one of the reasons we love cats so much. It’s like they can sneak into spaces 1/10th their original size. However, when you pay attention to this cat squeezing its way out of a household vent, it’s rather disturbing.

Peeping and Creeping

Makes you understand better why they use the term “cat burglar.” Flexible by nature, cats can effortlessly cram in and out of smaller spaces. So, think twice before making your cat angry. After all, it has the intellect to plot your demise.

A Diver’s Nightmare

What first looks like an eye is nothing more than a harmless mollusk. The Giant Key Limpet is a northeastern Pacific Ocean species of limpet and they are oddly terrifying. Due to their intricate design, inexperienced divers could easily mistake them for a gouged-out human eye.

A Diver’s Nightmare

These are the biggest limpets out there and they eat algae to sustain themselves. They are virtually harmless to humans. Similar to abalone, Giant Key Limpets are edible, but could one really eat something like that? Debatable.

Don’t Swim Here

This is one of those pictures that make you do a double-take. What is that big brown patch in the pool? That’s a giant freshwater stingray, native to rivers and estuaries in Borneo and Southeast Asia.

Don’t Swim Here

They are capable of reaching up to 16.5 feet in length, including the tails. Some reports suggest finding giant stingrays weighing up to 1,300 pounds. However, this was never verified for obvious reasons. We’d be scared to even come near one!

Neighborhood’s Angry Grandpa

Every neighborhood has that one angry 60-something-year-old who absolutely hates being there. This is the man who probably has his doorbell rung eight times a day by the pesky kids running around, playing. Annoyed, he opens the door before spewing out a bunch of curse words.

Neighborhood’s Angry Grandpa

That is exactly what this cheetah resembles. The growl and nose scrunch may be the best part. House cats do this all the time, reminding us that cheetahs are simply bigger cats.
