Tumblr Thread: The 4 Foot Tall Red-Bearded Vulture

Guys, get ready to be scared and impressed all at the same time. We're about to give some love to yet another insanely underappreciated animal, but we're going to do it from the safety of our homes, because this bloody bird is a little terrifying. Meet the 4 foot tall red-bearded vulture. 

We know that birds are clawsome at this point, don't even lie. Parrots can impersonate different accents and be jerks to other pets. Crows sometimes collect gifts and bring them to people. And the red-bearded vulture? Well, the red-bearded vulture eats a diet of bones and covers itself in blood for a reason which, even after we read, we can't really comprehend. It's a cool bird though, and we always love learning more about the animal kingdom, even when it scares us a bit.

When Awwdorable Yet Mildly Scary Wild Animals Encounter Civilization (Tweets)

Encounters with wildlife always have us torn somewhere between wanting to "aww" and being mildly terrified. Like, the person who was chased by a cow on valentines day probably thought the cow was cute for a second before starting to scream, or when the tiniest most dramatic possum infiltrated a cat rescue... actually, the possum was still awwdorable at the end. 

The following collection of tweets captures that feeling of adorable terror perfectly. Looking out the window one day, this twitter user found its home surrounded by tiny but fierce little felines - bobcat kittens, and other twitter users rushed to share their own wildlife encounters that left them "aww"ing but staying the heck home. 

It's like going to the zoo for these animals, watching us through our windows at home. We feel like they've earned a class tip every once in a while too.

Tweets Of Terribly But Hilariously Animated Animals

Have you ever watched an animated movie, and you're sitting there, enjoying yourself, and then one of the worst, most terrifying-looking animal comes onto the screen and you feel like you've fallen into a different dimension? Well, twitter users are going through this existential crisis today, and we think it's so funny. 

For some reason, movie animators have a tendency to try to make animals look more "attractive" or more "realistic" by giving them human features, and they always miss their goal by a mile and a half. And give us nightmares in the process. At least these animated animals are funny to laugh at though.

User Shares Things Their Cats Do That Make Them Nervous

Admit it, if you're a cat owner, there are times where your little feline stares at you from across the room with their eyes shining in the darkness, and you wonder to yourself about what creature you actually brought into your home. Yes, it's true, cats may be lazy, they may be adorable, they may have the fluffiest bellies and the most wholesome purrs, but they are still creatures of great strength and power, and no one should get on their bad side

Oh, we're kidding. Have you ever seen a kitty stuck in a curtain, crying for help until you help pull their nail out of where its stuck. Cats like Maddie and her brother may be a little intimidating sometimes, but it's never for reals. ...we hope.

Funny Viral Tweets Discovering The Real But Mildly Terrifying Gerenuk

Meet the gerenuk, otherwise known as the giraffe gazelle. It is one of the only animals out there with whom we kiiiinda understand why it doesn't get more attention. Don't get us wrong, as animal lovers, we totally think this animal is cute and worthy of love, but it... also looks just a tiny bit disproportional, and we would maybe (probably) scream if we randomly saw it outside. 

And it seems that twitter agrees, because when a tweet about this incredibly cool animal went viral, the reaction was mostly fear and slight confusion. So, in honor of this animal finally getting attention, we figured we would give it some (slightly terrified) love of our own.

Tumblr Thread: Cursed But Real Medieval Beekeeper Garb

You must have wondered how people in the past handled things for which we have technology today. A washing machine? Well, we've seen pics how people washed clothes in the river? Cellphones? Well, there were phone booths, and way before that, there were... letters. But have you ever thought about how beekeepers used to handle their bees before they got their fancy outfits?

Apparently, tumblr users have indeed wondered about it, and the answer is they handled them with baskets on their faces. And after reading this, we want to say thank you to tumblr for both informing us of cool facts and mildly scaring us and giving us nightmares.

Cat Survives 11 Days In Airport Ceiling, Reunited With Owner

Oh, thank goodness! This ceiling cat must have been blessed by the ceiling cat itself to have made it through this traumatic situation! For those who have cats, you can imagine that flying with them would be one of the most stressful situations imaginable. Not just for the cats, but for us as well. And as their owners, we can't help but share their stress and pain. 

When Taylor Le was preparing to move across the country, from New York to Orange County, California, she of course was going to fly with her 6-year-old cat, Muji. The flight was scheduled to fly on Christmas Eve. As Taylor Le went through the security checkpoint at La Guardia Airport, the TSA agents had her remove Muji from her carrier. Taylor Le tried to persuade the agents otherwise, knowing that if Muji was outside her carrier, she would be liking to flee. Regardless of Taylor Le's protests, Muji was removed from her carrier, panicked, and fleed. 

Le told The Post about the pending cat-astrophe, "I said, 'She's gonna run. Do I have to take her out?' We walked through the metal detector and she got spooked, bit me, freaked out, and ran off." They told her yes.

The flee led her owner, and airport staff, on a wild goose chase that ended when Muji climbed up a series of platforms to a ceiling enclosure and then vanished within them. In the following days, the airport staff tried to lure out Muji with cans of tuna, and Taylor Le changed her flight for the following day, in hopes of finding Muji in time, but she didn't and boarded the flight to Orange County, completely distraught.

Imgur User Provides Entertaining Commentary While Discovering Jacana Bird

Birds are an interesting species, there are about 400 billion birds on the planet. That's right, if they wanted, they could attack us, win, and take over the world. And who knows, maybe that is their plan. If you dive into that thought a bit deeper, with 5 billion people on the planet, this would amount to 40 to 60 birds per bird. So, yeah, they would definitely win. And one type of bird, the Jacana bird, may just freak out a majority of those people with its terrifying spider/bird hybrid legs, but the truth is way cuter than anyone would expect. 

When an Imgur user discovered the truth behind these seemingly freaky birds, they decided to share their knowledge with the world, and we are grateful.

This entertaining and thought-provoking commentary by Imgur user yourfriendlyneighbourhoodtzimisce:

Heroic Man Saves His Puppy From Jaws Of An Alligator

Richard Wilbanks, a 74-year-old man from Florida had his instinct take over when his 3-month-old Cavalier King Charles spaniel, Gunner, was grabbed from an alligator and dragged under the water. 

The scary moment took place in Wilbanks' backyard pond in Estero, and the moment Wilbanks jumped into the pond to rescue Gunner was recorded on a surveillance camera. The dramatic footage reveals Wildbanks waist-deep in the pond as he wrestles with the gator's jaws to free his dog Gunner from them. 

Wilbanks describes the terrifying moment to CNN, "We were just out walking by the pond and it came out of the water like a missile. I never thought an alligator could be that fast. It was so quick. I just automatically jumped into the water." He also added that opening up the gator's jaw was "extremely hard" and that his hands were left "chewed up" afterward. He also added that he went to the doctor afterwards for a tetanus shot. And Gunner was of course taken to the vet after the incident where he was treated for one puncture wound in his belly.

Thanks to Wilbanks courage and rescue without hesitation, his adorable pup Gunner is doing just fine. From now on, Wilbanks will be keeping Gunner on a leash and far away from the water's edge. 

"Our pets, they're just like family to us," Wilbanks concluded.

Deep Diving With Some Shark Facts

It's the beginning of Spooktober and what's spookier than creatures of the deep sea? So much is unknown and the information we do know can be just as scary as the unknown! 

Sharks. If someone tells you, while in shark-infested waters, that they aren't afraid of sharks... they're definitely lying to you. Sharks are terrifying! Yes, they're also amazing and very important to the balance of the ecosystem but that doesn't change the fact that they are essentially dinosaurs. They've got this haunting movement and look, those black eyes... and all those teeth! 

As part of our Spooktober special, we bring to you 25 shark facts that are pretty unnerving. Enjoy!

Twitter User Shows Demonic-Looking Wasps Nest Growing On Garage (Tweets)

Yikes! For anyone who's ever had a wasps nest grow on or near their house -- you know how terrifying (and dangerous) that is. For those who don't know, consider yourself lucky. Wasp stings hurt. A lot. 

But, unlike those pesky mosquitos which serve no purpose but to spread disease, at least wasps contribute to the world by controlling pest insect populations. 

And even though they are beneficial to the human population, it's never a good sign to see these terrifying nests growing so close to home. Twitter user, @thegallowboob, had shared a terrifying image of a wasps nest growing around headlights of a garage, giving it a demonic-look whenever the lights are turned on. Other users began sharing the wasps' nest near them, as well as other creepy animals that hang around their house. 

All we can say is... thanks for the nightmares!
