60 Chilling Nature Photos

This Black timber wolf is ready to attack

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.

The last thing you want to see when you’re out on a hike is a face like this. Timber wolves aren’t born mean but they don’t want you running free through their territory. As scary as these canines seem they have hearts as big as anything else. According to Reader’s Digest a prospector who rescued a group of timber wolf cubs from Coho Creek in Alaska and returned them to their mother and helped nurse them back to health the animals remembered him years after the fact. After returning from World War II he saw a dark shape moving across a meadow. He said:

I could see it was a timber wolf. A chill spread through my whole body. I knew at once that familiar shape, even after four years. ‘Hello, old girl,’ I called gently. The wolf edged closer, ears erect, body tense, and stopped a few yards off, her bushy tail wagging slightly.

It's not an alien craft but a bloated whale carcass adrift at sea

When an animal passes away in the wild it decomposes and disappears like it was never there, but what happens to the largest animals on the planet when they die? When a whale kicks the bucket they begin to decompose like everything else, but the bacteria in their stomachs produce heat and gasses that build up and cause the animal to swell up like a huge balloon - which is what you can see in this photo. Before long the pressure becomes too great and the carcass explodes sending guts and viscera everywhere. Coastal towns that find themselves dealing with a lot of whale carcasses have teams that make sure to puncture the whales to keep the disgusting explosions under control.
