6 Real Life Insect And Wildlife Nightmares

2. Spiders As Big As A Puppy

The Goliath Birdeater Spider: listed in the Guinness World Records as the world’s biggest spider, the terrifying-looking arachnid weighs a hefty six ounces, (almost the same weight as a newborn puppy), and has a leg span that extends out a foot (the size of a child’s forearm).

Talk about a scary movie. Two women and children went to the theater, and left with more than a happy family memory. They were attacked and bit buy invading bed bugs.

4. Soylent Green – IT‘S INSECTS!!!!!!!!!

Billions more hungry mouths are going to put more strain on the planet’s resources. Can eating creepy crawlies offer a solution for the future? Are insects our next junk food?

5. The “Cujo” Bats Of Syracuse

Almost taken right out of a Steven King novel. Bats in Syracuse, NY are being infected with rabies at an alarming rate and as the weather gets cooler, they often seek refuge inside homes.

6. The Poison Spitting Two-Striped Walking Sticks A.K.A The Devil’s Riding Horse

Found in Florida, the Gulf Coast, and in Texas – these 2 striped walking sticks can shoot a white substance (poison) from their bodies for defense. They have wicked aim from 1 to 2 feet. Some victims have said that the Two-Striped Walking Stick’s poison in the eye is like being burned with “molten lava“. While not ever proven to be fatal for humans, these bugs have severely injured and killed dogs and other pets.
