I don’t care about politics, or about the huge invoice of refugees we’re getting. The only thing i care about is i don’t have to worry about fierce animals shredding or eating me to death. I can safely walk into the woods, or swim in a lake and not get eaten alive by one of these animals down below.
Not included: Humans, though.
This otherwise normal seeming shark had a row of teeth that grew vertically and in a circular fashion. Thankfully they didn’t rotate like they would in your nightmares, but it still strikes a frightening image.
Probably one of the most infamous legendary animals, the titanoboa grew to lengths over 40 feet in length and eating basically anything, including crocodiles.
A bug the size of a Nissan Sentra, the Arthropleura was mostly a herbivore but was found to eat meat from time to time.
Described as the Jurassic Park depiction of Velociraptors in real life, the Andrewsarchus was a furred mammal that hunted in packs and hunted for sport. Strangely their modern descendants are goats and sheep, not wolves.
Spinning giant webs, the Mogoloarachne could eat anything that made its way into the Mogoloarachne’s web.
This walking ‘croc’ could sprint after it’s prey. Imagine running into that in the dark one night.
The bird so terrifying they just named it the Terror Bird, it was bigger and badder than any modern bird. They ate horses and smaller animals (all the animals smaller than horses) but thankfully these guys died out a little before modern humans made the scene.
Like a pelican melted with a giraffe, the Azhdarchid was a relative of the pterodactyl that liked to eat it’s food whole.
Imagine a giant pair of swimming scissors and you have the Edestus. Don’t run with scissors, and now don’t swim with them either.
A giant squid like creature with a massive 40 foot cone shaped shell, the Cameroceras was basically a real life Kraken.
One of the earliest creatures to crawl from the ocean to land, the Brontoscorpio had stingers the size of 60-watt light bulbs!
This towering monstrosity ate everything smaller than itself.
Unlike modern whales the Livyatan Melvillei had fully functional teeth and one of the biggest bites out there. Said to be the inspiration for Moby Dick, tis monster lived and died more than 12 million years ago so you can sleep safe on your house boat tonight.
Rivaling the size of a T-rex, this giant lizard could grow past 40 feet.
Definitely larger than a human toddler, thought to be as large as some eagles, this giant dragonfly could have survived in the upper atmosphere! If these guys were not extinct we suspect bug zappers would be the worlds leading industry.
So many legs, so many nightmares. This lengthy millipede was one of the scariest beasts to roam the earth.
What amounts to a real world big foot or Yeti it was super strong and twice the size of the silverback gorilla.
Making box turtles seem cute, the Carbonemys was the size of a car and was a total meat eater.
