This Zoo Wants YOU to Collect Venom From One of the World’s Deadliest Spiders

Did you read our story yesterday about the massive spider plague that’s about to overrun Australia? (I know what you’re thinking… in Australia, “spider plague” is probably just another term for “Tuesday”).

Spiders, Sharks, Scorpions and More Horrors from the Headlines

Viral Video Shows “Dinosaur-Sized” Alligator Stomping Through Florida Park

Well, no sooner did we publish a feature about bizarre things happening in Florida (I like to think of that state as “the Australia of the US”), someone down there must have decided we’re not through yet.

Eerie Facebook Image Allegedly Shows a Winged “Demon” Walking the Streets

It all started with a single image post from Facebook user Richard Christianson in Phoenix, Arizona… captioned only with this question: “What the hell do you see in this picture… for reals? Anybody?” Since that post, which popped up on New Year’s Day (and apparently has since been removed), all of Facebook exploded with theories […]
