Centuries of science have led us to one very important conclusion: skeletons are very spoopy.
They haunt our Halloween times, they dance around menacingly in our cartoons, they sit inside our very bodies, waiting for their moment to strike. But perhaps the spoopiest thing of all about them bones is how deceptive they are. Looking at the skeleton of a common animal, you’d just as likely as not get the completely wrong impression of what the thing really looked like. In other words, those tricky spoopy bois lie to us.
Here are just a few examples to illustrate exactly why skeletons can’t be trusted.
What a ferocious smile.
Technically not a skeleton, but the point remains.
Either way, these things shouldn’t exist.
25. Leopard Seal
A mighty derp has been awakened.
Ah yes. Its true form is MUCH more reasonable.
Plus it’ll sell you car insurance.
I can’t believe the second pic is fake and the third one is real.
Don’t let the looks deceive, he’ll still chomp you down.
From brute to cute.
19. Killer Whale
Still got killer in the name, though.
The most terrifying creature of all is not It, but Us.
Watch out for them teeth.
You can’t convince me these things aren’t aliens.
Ok, maybe some skeletons deserve our trust.
How this isn’t a cyclops is beyond me.
Much friendlier than you might suspect.
12. Elephant Seal
Looks like an absolute monster. Really just a blobby boi.
11. Hammerhead Shark
To be fair, these guys are 100% nature’s pranks.
10. Domestic Dog
From h**l beast to best friend real quick.
9. Snapping Turtle
Don’t be shy, little guy!
8. Domestic Cat
Don’t let the looks deceive, they’re still vicious.
General Coyote! Your bones will make a fine addition to my collection!
Don’t mind me, just a fluff.
Small but mighty.
Ok, you get a pass.
3. Another Domestic Cat
You’ve come a long way, Mr. Kibbles.
2. Night Monkey (aka Owl Monkey)
And the greatest example of why we can’t just rely on bones…
Pretty eye-opening. Remember to stay vigilant toward those lying skeletons. They’re extremely sneaky. There may even be some in your house RIGHT NOW!
What do you think is the weirdest looking animal in the world?
