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!

Spa Offers Snake Massages As A Form Of Relaxation

Don't tell Indiana Jones that people are willingly having snakes put on them for "relaxation".

When you think of a soothing spa massage, we definitely don't think 'snakes' in any sense of the word. However, an Israeli beauty spa offers customers exactly that, and pay $80 an hour for it. 

Of course, the snakes are non-venomous. Apparently, such a massage is really common in Indonesia. the spa lets these colorful snakes crawl all over the body, including your spine, back, face, arms, and legs.

Ada Barak, the owner of the unique spa called Carnivorous Plant Farm, in Northern Israel, explains that most clients are initially skeptical about this massage, but everything changes after the first one.

What do you think? Would it be something you'd try out?

The Icelandic Christmas folklore of Jólakötturinn, depicts mountain-dwelling characters, in this case, a Yule Cat, who come to town during Christmas. The Yule Cat is said to be a large and wicked murder floof who lurks in the depths of the snowy countryside. 

And once a year, during Christmas time, the Yule Cat comes out and eats people who haven't gotten any new clothes to wear before Christmas Eve.

In this holiday-themed and interesting new series created by PBS, called Monstrum, and hosted by Dr. Emily Zarka, we learn all about the Yule Cat 

Zarka explains, in the video, why and how this legend came to be:

"The threat of the Yule Cat represents a rather practical problem—the need for warm clothes and successful wool production. Iceland began exporting wool in the Middle Ages, and it became vital to the Icelandic economy and survival. During this time, wool related chores were the responsibility of the entire household. …the largest tasks at hand were spinning and weaving. … In the past, Christmas gifts among most people were sparse and usually consisted of some small piece of clothing—but that was only possible if everyone had participated in the annual production of wool and done their fair share of the work. …Because the Yule Cat only attacks people who do not receive new clothes, this monster likely emerged as a response to the importance of wool production, scaring children (and even adults) into finishing their textile work in time for Christmas."

Spooky stuff! Happy Holidays to all and look out for that Yule Cat come next Christmas!

Teens Watching Late-Night TV Heard Fridge Beep Only To Find Out It Was A Bear Stealing Taco Meat

This is crazy! Can you imagine, you're in the living room watching some late-night TV and all of a sudden you hear the fridge open and beep in the kitchen. You think, maybe one of your parents got up for a midnight snack? Seems logical, right? You would never think in a 100 years that the person in the kitchen, who opened the fridge, wasn't a person at all. 

It was a bear. A black bear. 

That's what happened to these two teens from Truckee, California around 12:30 a.m. this past Saturday. 15-year-old Hayes Sherman told CNN, "I heard footsteps, and then I heard Tupperware being opened really loudly and aggressively. The fridge started to beep because it was open too long." Sherman continued, "I was really scared. I wasn't exactly sure of what to do. I was watching TV with my friend, and I turned the TV off. We both went to the sliding door to hold it in place so that the bear couldn't get in."

A Nest camera in the living room happened to capture the bizarre scenario. In the video below, you can see the black bear stand on its hind legs, sniff around and dig through the fridge. The bear broke the Tupperware to devour some taco meat, and it is said that the bear's late-night snack also included two pints of Ben and Jerry's ice cream (Half Baked and The Tonight Dough flavors), and some crackers. 

This bear has some good taste in late-night snacks! 

Sherman's mother was sleeping upstairs, completely unaware of the drama that was unfolding downstairs. Soon enough, the bear bumped into the door where the teens were hiding out and tried to open it multiple times. Sherman and his friend held it shut and realized they didn't have their phones with them. While Sherman's friend held onto the shaking door, Sherman used his Apple watch to call his mother. 

"I whispered to her, 'Mom, there is a bear in the house. Don't come downstairs,'" Sherman then called 911 as his mother called a security guard. 

"It was very difficult, because I was whispering to 911 on my watch in a very dark room while trying to hold the door closed so the bear couldn't get in," said Sherman. 

The police arrived in 13 minutes but it felt like an hour to Sherman. 

His mom, Susan Mohun, said she fought every urge to race down the stairs.

"That is the worst-case scenario as a parent to have a bear between you and your children. I am glad that I didn't run downstairs, because that probably would have just agitated the bear," Mohun said.

Placer County Sheriff's Deputy, Allyson Prero, opened the door, got out of the way and let the bear leave the house, according to the sheriff's office. "We came out, and we went to hug her, and we took a photo with her because we were just so grateful that she came to save us," Sherman said.

These Yellow Jacket 'Super Nests' In Alabama Are Down-Right Terrifying

Charles Ray, an entomologist with the Alabama Cooperative Extension System (ACES), says Yellow Jackets are creating "super nests" that are three to four times the size of regular wasp nests! A regular nest is equivalent to the size of a volleyball and houses about 4,000 to 5,000 worker wasps. The "super nests" are housing up to 15,000 worker wasps!
