Be sure to get the number of a good exterminator or two while you’re vacationing in the land down under, and no, we’re not joking. Australia is home to some of the scariest animals known to this Earth, snakes and alligators especially. While Australia is also beautiful and mesmerizing, it’s also a tad bit terrifying and that’s why we compiled some of the craziest photos ever captured in Australia. Just take a look for yourself, if you dare.

So, This Happened

Yes, you are looking at an anaconda devouring an alligator. It’s pretty common in Australia it seems like, makes it seem like exterminators aren’t used all that often.

So, This Happened

So, This Happened

Nope.

Who doesn’t want to swim with the “fishies” like this? Well, just head on over to Australia and live out the dream. If you dare. Oh and in case you were wondering, this is not on my bucket list.

Nope.

Nope.

Electric Bill

If you’re ever boggled by why your electric bill is through the roof, be sure to check it doesn’t look like this. You want a number for pest control? Yeah, we don’t blame you.

Warm Welcome

Oh honey, I’m so glad you’re home! So that you can get rid of this MASSIVE and UNWELCOME snake of course.

Nom Nom

Snakes in Australia have got to be the craziest we’ve laid eyes on. In this case, the snake is eating a lizard which is the size of a small child. Nice. Oh no, wait, that’s not nice. It’s terrifying. I’d have pest control on speed dial if I lived there.

Dracula Lives

It’s no secret that Australia is home to many, large species of bats and you’ll be inclined to see this creature more than once. Although when one is basically a descendant of Dracula, well that’s a different mortifying tale.

Hole In One

Golf in any country, not just Australia to be honest, encounters such situations. Yes, the “snake’in-one” situation is what we clearly mean. Just remember to take a peek before you attempt that put.

Insects AKA Nope.

Clearly this guy doesn’t need pest control service as they’re looking quite chummy together.

King Of The Water

Crocodile/Alligator? Check. Shark? Check. Epic battle? Double check. Only one can emerge victorious and in this case…it’s the crocodile/alligator. **Mind blown.**

Nothing To See Here, Act Normal!

Ostrich? Lama? Collared sheep? Two humans? Yeah, I’m going to call that the weirdest list I’ve ever compiled in my life and well, it’s only possible in the land down under, Australia obviously, for that to come true.

Oh…Hey, Didn’t See You There

Did you know that the saltwater crocodile is one of the largest creatures that can be found in Australia. Here are some Japanese visitors who took pictures of the giant snout, sharp fanged crocodile while partaking on an organized tour. Nothing out of the ordinary for Australia we guess.

Oh...Hey, Didn't See You There

Munchies

Sharks and Australia basically go hand in hand, and that’s really no surprise. However, sharks often come into contact with humans, or dogs in this case, and they don’t always come out victorious. Case in point.

Stephen King Approved

Epic novelist Stephen King must spend a lot of time in Australia because this skull is hands down, the scariest thing we’ve laid eyes on. And we all know how scary his novels are.

Stuck On You

Come on, Australia, you’ve gotta be kidding. Ticks the size of the Hulk are running amok? That’s just ridiculous.

‘Sup?

All right, now you know you need an exterminator. How can lizards even get that big? How?! I’m freaking out a little bit…okay, not a little. A lot!

'Sup?

‘Sup?

Is It A Bird, Is It A Plane, No It’s Uhh….

Personally, I don’t care if this is just a massive crab or tarantula, I’d have an exterminator on site faster than you can say, Australia is freaky-deeky!

Is It A Bird, Is It A Plane, No It's Uhh....

Is It A Bird, Is It A Plane, No It’s Uhh….

Yee Haw

The result of a sheep herding dog failing at its job. Yeah, that happened.

Flyin’ High

This could be where Samuel L. Jackson’s Snakes on a Place came to life, although we’re not sure which version is more terrifying. Basically, a flight from Australia to Papua New Guinea surprised its passengers with a rather unpleasant addition. Luckily, the snake was outside the plane but that doesn’t really make it less freaky.

Let’s Hike

Oh man, hiking is off the list for sure now. Why? Pretty sure that’s an anaconda eating some kind of deer or something. I don’t think I need to point out how mortifying that is and no, I don’t really wanna talk about the cycle of life.

The Ultimate Photobomb

Okay, okay, we know this isn’t anything scary at all. But when a cow decides to photobomb a horse stuck in a fence…well, we’d be foolish not to include it in the list. Well done, Australia, even your cows are comedians.

Fishing, Anyone?

Mm-hmm, this is certainly one way to perfect your fishing technique, just follow along with the snake. Now there’s a sentence I never thought I’d say. Or write.

Fishing, Anyone?

Fishing, Anyone?

Yeah, No.

This looks like the Mandy Moore and Claire Holt flick 47 Meters Down, right? Well unlike the Hollywood flick, this is real life. And that’s terrifying!

Yeah No.

Yeah No.

Cause This Isn’t Creepy

Is that a snake…eating…a bat? Oh. My. Goodness. (Trying to keep it PG, okay?) Ahem, I can’t even formulate a sentence, I’m at a loss for words by what I’m seeing.

Prize

That’s one brave soul, but let’s just hope the crocodile is really dead because if it wakes up in the back of your pick up truck, well. Safe to say, you’re in trouble and no exterminator expertise is going to help.

When It Floods

Oh man, Australia, you’re crazy. Like the saying goes, when it floods, it brings the crocodiles with it. Excuse me while I run for the hills.

Uhh

Uhh, I believe what we’re looking at is a lightning bolt of fire in the middle of the desert? Did I just say that? Yeah, my mind is spinning.

Comin’ For Yah

When a storm is so powerful that it washes up a shark on shore, well, that’s when you know you’re in trouble. Remind me to never go swimming again. **Gulp**

Run!

Who in their right mind would take a picture of a snake coming out of their ceiling over pest control service or exterminators?! I just don’t get it.

Run!

Run!

The Battle Is Over

The age old battle of which way the toilet paper should face has been determined. Thanks, Australia.

My Squishy

Remember if you jump on the tops, they won’t sting you. But this is no Disney movie and we’re not Dory so how about we just stay out of the water? Okay then.

Oh, Nice

Floods are disastrous, and that’s really no secret but come on. Why they gotta wash up sharks too? Gimme a break!

Oh Nice

Hangry

Fighting ostriches? Now we’ve seen it all. Also, this kind of looks like me when I haven’t eaten in an hour. Uncanny.

Blue-ringed Octopus

Next up is the blue-ringed octopus which looks cute but it’s actually responsible for more than 20 recorded deaths. This octopus hides in tide pools and unfortunately, there is no anti-venom. Furthermore, death can occur just within two hours if you should get stung.

Bargain Shopper

Welp, could be worse, right? Oh no, wait. This is pretty much as scary and freaky as it gets. Like, ever. I don’t know about you but this is not my idea of retail fun.

Good Time For A Swim

What you’re looking at is indeed a skin crawling photo of a swarm of beetles on-board a ship in Australia. And this far out, the idea of hiring an exterminator or pest control doesn’t seem likely.

Fishy Fishy

Everyone knows that jellyfish are dangerous enough that with just a simple touch can shock you, ZAP! So when we gaze upon this *massive* jellyfish that washed up on the Australian coast, we find ourselves utterly stunned. Why? Pretty sure with the size of this bugger, we’d wind up roasted pretty quick.

Fishy Fishy

Fishy Fishy

Yeah, You, Hey.

When you’re being interviewed live on air for the first time and boom! A shark swims up behind you, pretty sure, you wouldn’t keep your cool like this guy did. Maybe it’s just because he’s lived in Australia for so long. Who knows?

Yeah, You, Hey.

Yeah, You, Hey.

Surf’s Up

No one said the waters were safe, everyone knows that to be true and sure, we all take a risk of finding ourselves battling something or someone unexpected. A photo like this one is more common than you think, and not just in Australia.

Reef Stonefish

Yup, one of the world’s most dangerous fish can be found just off the Australian coast. Reef stonefish have the ability to blend in with surrounding rocks so you need to watch your step otherwise you’ll wind up in the hospital due to the agony you’ll experience from one bite.

Nessie

If you thought this was the Loch Ness monster, don’t worry, you’re not alone. However it’s just another crocodile although that doesn’t exactly make me feel any better, or safer.
