60 Chilling Nature Photos

By Sophia Maddox | May 24, 2023

Cthulu or seaweed? And do you want to find out what it is?

Look closer...these are the most chilling, unedited photos ever captured in nature.

Mother Nature can be gentle and kind, but on the day these photos were taken, she was dark, demonic, and dangerous.

It’s risky business walking out your front door and these pictures prove it. They feature frightening animals, unreal weather patterns and some of the most striking and disorienting visuals that have ever been witnessed. Nature is only bound by the laws of physics… it has the ability to explode lava through the Earth, freeze homes, and send sand rushing like a tidal wave, but it can create wonders that touch your soul as well.

Even though we’re much more aware of what’s in the ocean today, for a second you probably thought these waves were filled with creatures with thousands of tentacles. We know it’s seaweed but it’s hard not to freak out a little bit when you see something like this. The ocean is filled with seaweed and all manner of muck, but it’s rare to see the water pick up so much sea trash and bring it along with it in a massive wave. Can you imagine what it’s like to swim into a wave like this? Even if the water isn’t filled with a giant octopus or something it’s still got to be gross to let this kind of thing wash over you.

No, this isn’t a still from a new Planet of the Apes movie, it’s a shot of an incredibly buff chimpanzee that suffers from alopecia - a condition that makes them lose their hair. Even though these animals are incredibly close to humans, sharing between 95 to 98 percent of the same DNA, when it comes to their fitness and muscles there’s no parallel between the two species. But why is this chimpanzee so buff? Researchers have noted that their muscles perform differently because their muscle fibers are closer to the bone than in humans and that makes them more dense than what can be found in humans.
