# 9 Vintage Mexican Jewelry
In Bel Air, California a couple who had just moved into their new house found a surprise in their bathroom. Underneath the vanity in their bathroom, they noticed a strange area in the tile on the wall. After pushing and removing a pseudo tile, they discovered tons of pieces of vintage jewelry from Mexico. That’s probably the best surprise to find in a bathroom. Much better than going into your bathroom after a family dinner in a shady restaurant.
# 8 $51, 080 Dollars
One couple found a 50-year-old safe in their bathroom wall. It was filled with $51, 080 US dollars mostly in 100 dollar notes, a 1960 bottle of bourbon, and a book called A Guide For the Perplexed by E.F. Schumacher. There definitely seems to be a story behind this hidden stash, but if there is, it’s probably lost to history forever.
# 7 5 feet
It’s easy to assume that whoever is hiding behind this stall wall is doing something naughty, but if you look closer you might think twice about that suggestion. Look at their feet! What positions would they possibly be standing in? Maybe these are just the limbs belonging to a five-legged being? On second thought, I don’t want to try visualizing this
# 6 A Carp
Someone decided to make this McDonald’s employee’s day a little bit more interesting/annoying. While cleaning up the bathroom, he found a gigantic dead carp pushed up against the bathroom. First of all, who managed to sneak this huge fish into McDonald’s without anyone noticing. Secondly, why did they do that just to leave it in there? How rude do you have to be just to drop a carp on the floor of someone else’s workplace? They probably do not pay this employee enough to clean up someone else’s dirty carp.
# 5 Chopped Red Onions
Someone at this public high school decided it would be a good idea to bring a bag of chopped red onions to school and then throw them loosely into the toilet. Unless this is the beginning of some new fangled teen trend, I think that this was done by a comical genius. Or just a jerk with too much time on his hands. If there was anyone who would spend their time chopping up what looks like several red onions just to make some stranger’s life inconvenient, it would be a high school student.
# 4 Pig Head
This fun find was discovered in the bathroom of a rowing club in Amsterdam. One might be inclined to think this is the result of a bad case of food poisoning. Okay maybe not that, but it is definitely some sort of weird alternative satanic sacrifice right? Actually, it’s nothing too esoteric or bizarre. This is apparently one step in a series of hazing rituals in which new recruits to the rowing team. In order to join they must dine in the club, piss over the lady’s dressing room floor and put a pig’s head in the toilet. So it’s not some kind of cultist thing, just some careless youths making life hard for everyone.
# 3 A Rat
A guest at this hotel heard a mysterious scratching sound coming from his bathroom. Having learned from the mistakes of countless horror movie main characters, instead of investigating he called the hotel staff to investigate for him. What they found was a creepy, crawly monster. A huge rat had crawled its way up and gotten stuck inside of the pipes. Apparently, it's a common occurrence for rats to crawl up into toilet piping, but if I was staying at this hotel I would be checking out faster than that rat crawled into the toilet.
# 2 Snake in the Toilet
A patron of a Starbucks in San Antonio walked in to find this nightmare in the public toilet. Of all the things found in bathrooms, this might be the most unnerving. A small snake was coiled around the rim of the toilet, seemingly waiting for its prey. How did this snake even get in this Starbucks? I thought their bathrooms were only for paying customers. Seeing this snake crawl around a toilet really invokes a vivid image of a snake attacking your precious undercarriage. Makes you wonder what else might be lurking in the shadows of a public toilet.
# 1 Yo-Yo Ma & A Wombat
In 2011, world renowned Cellist Yo-Yo Ma was found lying on the bathroom floor with Wilbur the Wombat. So why was Yo-Yo Ma, a multiple Grammy-winning, 2010 recipient of the White House Presidential Medal of Freedom, horizontal in a public bathroom? Well apparently, Yo-Yo Ma had requested a meet and greet with Brookfield Zoo’s Wilbur the Wombat. So the wombat was brought out to a dressing room in the venue the famous cellist had been rehearsing at. When he took a break he was so excited to see the Wombat, and he did not hesitate to get right down on the ground and hang out. A World famous musician and a wombat might be the most surreal thing to find in a public bathroom.
Top 11 list of the most amazing alternative ancient weapons you might recognize from popular culture like Zena or even X-men.
Subscribe to Hectic Express http://goo.gl/PTUyyV
6. Shoge Hook
This Japanese weapon is a form of Kaginawa which is characterized by a rope or chain attached to a hook. Technically, Kaginawa is a class of grappling hooks, but this is a highly dangerous and weaponised version of a grappling hook. The shoge hook has a ring on one end of a chain and a hook dagger combo on the other end. Much like the meteor hammer this weapon is meant to be used from a distance and swung around to gain speed and lethality...
5. Finger Claws
This alternative weapon is not exactly practical for humans outside of science fiction and fantasy, but it is one of the most aesthetically pleasing weapons on the list. This weapon will likely never see a dip in popularity thanks to the awesome examples that some of the animal kingdom give us for claws. Someone will always want tiger claws. You can find some pretty ornate claws throughout the internet, most notably etsy, which makes this weapon a fashion statement all on their own. Our favorite example of finger claws being used is in X2: X-Men United when Lady Deathstrike more than holds her own against Wolverine with her adamantium fingernail claws.
If you learned to love double edged weapons from watching Darth Maul in the Phantom Menace then this ancient Indian weapon is for you. The haladie is a double ended dagger that was typically used by warriors in the Indian Rajput clans during the 6th century. This blade was useful for both stabbing and slicing and the blades of the dagger could also be serrated to inflict even more damage and make wounds from this weapon even harder to heal. The blade was big for a dagger too. Each blade was 8.5 inches and the whole weapon measured in at 23 inches long. It’s also one of the earliest examples of triple edged blades. There isn’t really a modern representation of this weapon, but it definitely deserves to be showcased.
Staffs sadly don’t come with magic powers, despite what most pop culture would have you believe. Quarterstaffs were hugely popular in England for quite some time, but it was at its height during the late middle ages and the post-classical period. It’s essentially just a stick made of hardwood that measures in at 6 to 9 feet long. Traditionally this weapon was also tipped with some kind of metal like steel or iron to make it more effective in combat. The staff was used in stick fighting which was big in historical European martial arts. The weapon was excellent at defense and it was also used a lot as a thrusting weapon. It wasn’t exactly made for hacking and slashing. The technique when using this is a lot like fencing with a lot of footwork and flexibility. The most famous modern example of this weapon being used is in Star Wars: The Force Awakens by Rey which is one of the main characters in the movie.
Move aside brass knuckles, the is more awesome than you could ever be. These stealthy weapons were favored by ninjas and kunoichi. The weapon was a ring that had one to four spikes protruding from it. Despite what it appears to look like, these spikes weren’t worn with the spikes facing outward. They would actually be worn with the spikes facing the inside of the palm so that they could be used as a surprise attack. The spikes would pierce the opponent's flesh when they were slashed across the face or choked. The spikes were also sometimes dipped in poison to make the spikes on this ring even more deadly. They also sometimes had a hole in them so that warriors could thread a rope through the ring so that the rope could not be pulled away from them. There aren’t a lot of modern representations of this weapon either.
This is a weapon that actually predates recorded history, it has such a long tradition. This was the most common weapon in the world until guns started to be manufactured and you can find a history of archery in pretty much any culture in the world. The first evidence of bow use is during the Mesolithic period where archaeologists found evidence of stone tipped arrows in the skeletons of different animals. Archery is still popular today, but it has become an antiquated weapon in recent history. Bows are still used in hunting and the sport of archery. Being an accurate archer takes a lot of skill and practice and it certainly isn’t for everyone. It’s still popular in today's culture, though, almost every fantasy or dystopian work has some kind of character that uses a bow. Our favorite examples of famous bow-wielders are Hawkeye and Legolas.
A rat's ribs are hinged at the spine, enabling it to easily squeeze through the tightest spaces—like the pipes draining your toilet. And rats are great swimmers too; they can hold their breath for up to three minutes. See how quickly a rat can go from the city streets to your bathroom.

Take a peek into the beginning of your favorite animals lives. Here are 19 Womb Photos.

If I didn’t mention already that these were bats, could you have guessed? The wings look similar but the head and color seem totally uncharacteristic of what think of when we see a bat. Their heads are similar to army helmets but they will certainly grow up and creep you out when they get chance and maybe even fly around in your hair.
The fastest land animal in the world can reach speeds of over 70 miles an hour in quick sprints. Seen in the photo we can remark its humble beginnings. On average the mother will give birth to 3 baby cheetahs at one time and will remain with its mother for couple years to it’s ready to hunt on its own.
Since snakes are reptiles, they don’t develop inside a womb but inside an egg that will be hatched when it’s mature. With no vertebrae, the snake is able to coil into a spiral shape and take up less space. Eventually it will grow so big that it pushes up against the walls of the eggs and breaks it open. Here were can see through it head and it’s growing circulatory system.
The internet is littered with tons of cat photos and I’m sure you’re wondering, “Hmm, I wonder what a cat fetus looks like.” Well don’t worry, HecticExpress has you covered. Cats can even be adorable even when they are covered in embryotic fluid. This little guy might grow up to be your pet!
9. The Tiger Shark
The tiger shark begins to look like the fierce predator in the ocean that it is at an early age with its teeth already popping out. They’ve earned a stature of being a savage man-eater only behind great white sharks and they won’t give up after just one bite. Unfortunately for this guy, his species is slowing becoming endangered due to fishing so anyone who gets bit probably deserves it.
If you say you’ve seen anything cuter than a baby penguin I’m sure I believe you. For right now it’s safe to say that it has some, well, growing up to do. This chick will hatch soon and be fed a nutrient of “milk” that actually comes from both parents and not the female, unlike with mammals. This is often regurgitated into the mouth of the baby. Not sure if I still think baby penguins are cute.
This baby horse isn’t quite big enough to ride just yet. He’s still covered in some type of plasma and still remains to be one color. Without mentioning that it was a horse, I probably would have guessed it was a camel due to the shape of the head and from the color. But I usually don’t play, “guess this fetus” professionally.
6. The possum
Can you guess which animal this one is? If you said possum, you’re correct! Possums are marsupials, so that means it will remain in its mother’s pouch until it’s mature enough to walk on its own. Possums are often scavengers and you might find this scurrying through your trash! Which leads us to our next marsupial!
Gday Mate! This baby kangaroo fetus is shown inside his moms’ womb and can’t do any hoppin’ around just yet! This herbivore is known for carrying their young or (joey) in their pouch for up to 450 days. Once it’s a full grown adult, it can as high as 6 feet and reach speeds of 35 miles an hour!
This penguin is getting ready to hatch! Older than our last penguin shown, you can notice the beak so more definable and actually looks like a penguin. As chicks, the feathers on their bodies remain grey until they shed this layer when they get older, leaving them black and white as expected.
Yo quiero taco bell? Named after the Mexican state of Chihuahua where they are believed to have originated from, this is one of the smallest breeds of dogs in the world. He’s even smaller when he’s inside of his mother’s womb. Normally Chihuahuas are born small liters, making it even easier for his madre!
2. Another Cat
If your cat has ever been pregnant you might have wondered what her kittens look like on the inside. No need to get an ultrasound Cat scan, Cats can smell and taste while only 7 weeks in the womb and begin to groom themselves. They begin to grow every day and are preparing to make their entry into the world.
Probably the most recognizable and magnificent animal on the list. Right now, this elephant fetus is small enough to fit inside its mothers’ womb, which is quite incredible when you consider that’ll be at least 6, 000 pounds. I don’t care what car you have, it’s still much heavier than your car!

6. The Qwerkywriter
This is exactly what it looks like. This really is a match made in nerd heaven for people who miss the classy feel of old typewriters or just like the feeling of those keys. Although it does have that prominent metallic sound that everyone associates typewriters with, it doesn’t have the ding which is a huge loss. This started out as a Kickstarter campaign, and because this is a brilliant idea, of course, it got funding. This keyboard will definitely kick writer's blocks butt if you’re a writer. The only downside is the price. You can get it on the company’s website for $399. That’s a big price to pay to feel like Agatha Christie.
5. 3RD Space Gaming Vest
Although this looks like any old vest, this piece of First Person Shooter innovation is meant for the die hard player. You strap into it, and sync is with whatever game that you are playing and you can feel every gunshot, stab wound, and punch. The best part is that it is compatible with Bioshock, Call of Duty, and Battlefield. Why anyone would want to feel every bullet hole or knife when you’re playing a virtual game is only known by the creators and the crazy people buying these things. The price isn’t bad at $139 for the vest and all of the necessary parts. You might want to find out what the vest does when you die in the game, though. They might have hidden a kill switch in there for all you know.
4. Spider Mouse
This mouse is definitely not for the faint of heart. If you're an arachnid enthusiast or you just enjoy feeling dominant over your fellow creatures of mother nature, this mouse is a bargain at $22.99. You can find it for sale on amazon.com. This mouse is mostly just for looks because it functions much like any regular old mouse. The appearance is really cool, though, so we could get into it. They also need to release a mosquito so that we can feel like we built Jurassic Park. Just a thought. Just know that the spider will not burrow out of its plastic prison. Probably. Just be careful. You can get the mouse in a bunch of different colors, and you can even get it is glow in the dark!
3. Mad Catz Cyborg R.A.T. 9
It may not be the prettiest thing on the list, but the functionality of this little piece of tech is impressive. It’s a gaming mouse that features six programmable buttons, but the biggest feature of this item is one thing that no other mouse has. Knowing that everyone holds a mouse differently, the cyborg maximizes comfort by being adjustable to fit however you hold the mouse and the shape of your hand. That is why it looks like something that might have fallen off of a Terminator. You can even adjust the weight of the mouse whether you like a lighter or heavier mouse. The metal core of this mouse makes it sturdy and durable. It’s not a beauty queen, and the feel of it may take some time to get used to if you typically use a traditional mouse, but this is one mouse that will never let you down. Ugly and reliable, just like your grandpa’s shoes. You can get this mouse on amazon.com for $149.99.
2. AlphaGrip AG-5
Keyboards have been working for us for a long time, but if we just stuck with what already worked then we wouldn’t be where we are today. That is where the AlphaGrip AG-5 comes in. It’s an all in one controller that combines a console controller, keyboard, and mouse. This mouse will take a lot of time to get used to because it’s a completely different layout from what we are used to, but the company website promises that you will get up to 50 words per minute in no time. Is this true? Maybe. We don’t know. It looks weird, though, and it is just weird and unique enough to be worth it. The controls and keyboard mashup are currently out of stock, but they are taking preorders for when production starts again. The retail price is $129, and you get a $30 discount if you were to pre-order. We’ll leave it up to you to decide if it’s worth the buy.
Virtual Reality is all the rage, and it's not hard to see why. The Oculus Rift system is leading the pack in this technology right now and for a good reason. Wearing Virtual Reality anything is going to make you look a little bit stupid no matter what you do, but there is nothing quite like the immersion of this technology. Just strap on these goggles and navigate with the hand controllers and you will be put into a character like never before. There are some other great VR systems that bring a lot to the table like the Virtuix Omni which lets you walk with your character and the HTC Vive which brings a lot that the Oculus does. You can get the full Oculus system and the HTC Vive for about the same price of $800. If you’ve got the extra cash, this is something that is guaranteed to make you fall in love with video games again.
Who would have thought that people would take the normal everyday toilet and create it into something CRAZY? Here are 21 of the most unbelievable toilets.
Subscribe for weekly wacky videos and learn interesting facts about the world with awesome top 10 lists and other amazing videos.
14 — If it’s yellow, let it mellow…
This remote loo is found in West Antarctica! According to a few sites, people in Antarctica collect their urine in bottles and at the end of the day, the urine is put into a U Drum. These outhouses are for number 2’s only, and the waste goes into packet which lines a bin. When that’s full, its closed off and put on a ship where it’s disposed of properly.
13 — Bathroom visits will never be the same…
After using this bathroom at Madarao Kogen Mountain Resort, you may never want to use your own ordinary bathroom again. If you’re not into heights, this one may not be for you – as they have printed an image surrounding the cubicle – to look like you’re about to head downwards with your skis perfectly in place!
12 — Sitting pretty…
This King Tut Toilet looks like it’s really only fit for Royalty! The word Toilet is a French word, which was first recorded in 1540. It came from Toilette, meaning little cloth – which was the little cloth placed over people shoulders when they had their hair cut. The word evolved to include grooming and body care, and eventually referred to a room where people groomed, and finally to conclude where did their “business”.
11 — Shy bladder syndrome…
Now this is truly a bizarre toilet! These loos are found in Switzerland… and the occupant can see out at everything happening around him or her, but no one can see in. It was designed by Monica Bonvicini, who uses 1-way glass to create this unique effect. Just on a side note, the inside of the loo has to be kept dark, so as not to allow light to pass through. The moment it’s lit, well your business is on public display, in the worst way possible.
10 — Up for a little fun?
Who says going to the loo has to be boring! These Super Mario urinals are just the thing to add an element of fun to an otherwise mundane activity.
9 — Sitting on the throne…
This toilet takes you back in time and it’s been credited to Sir John Harrington, who designed the first toilet that would take away the need of tossing excrement manually. His Godmother was Queen Elizabeth the 1st, and she had one installed in Richmond palace in 1596. Wastes were flushed into a waste pot, which had to be emptied often.
8 — Royal Flush…
Statistics have said that the average person spends about 3 years of their life sitting on the loo, so why not bling it up a little with this beautiful sparkly toilet! Might set you back a few thousand dollars, but you’ll definitely feel like a royal sitting on this throne.
7 — Quick in and out…
This is one look you’re not going to be spending 3 years sitting on! Interesting to note, a student in Florida did a test on the Ice one finds in restaurants, and the water from a toilet bowl, and was horrified to discover that the ice in the restaurant contained more germs than the water in the toilet bowl!
6 — Nothing to see here…
A quirky addition to the men’s bathroom! Studies have proven that during the half time of the Super Bowl, is when the most number of toilets are flushed at one time. It would be interesting to note how much water is used during that time.
5 — An odd bit of toilet humour?
This is just bizarre, not only is it a bit creepy – but the added mirrors on either side are just strange too. Is it necessary to view yourself from every angle whilst taking a leak?
4 — Comfort is the order of the day…
Now our statistic from earlier of 3 years might change, because if this was your toilet – you would be spending way longer there, then the average 3 years. A survey conducted in 1992 revealed that public toilets in Britain were the worst in the world, followed by Thailand, Greece and France!
3 — No under 18’s…
You would hope that these bathroom facilities are only available in placed where there are just adults… because this would take a lot of explaining! Did you know, the first movie to feature a flushing toilet was Psycho in 1960?
2 — Best seat in the house…
Wouldn’t you love to have this in your home! They really should be marketing this one to parents, as this would make potty training an absolute breeze! 1890 was the very first year that toilet paper was marketed on the roll, much as we know it today!
1 — The Batcave…
This is surreal, and you’re about to go on a journey never thought possible… just by simply relieving yourself! You’re going to walk out of this bathroom feeling like you’re a superhero about to save the world!... just don’t forget to put the seat down!

From the aptly named Hagfish, to the weirdest slimy ball of matter ever found, these are 10 Most Bizarre Slimy Creatures!
Subscribe to Hectic Express http://goo.gl/PTUyyV
5. Pectinatella magnifica
Is this grossing you out? You’re not the only one. These blobby, snot-like masses have been popping up more and more all over the US in places that it isn’t supposed to. There has been a steady increase of these blobs in the Pacific Northwest. It’s a colony of organisms that group together to create a gelatinous substance that can be found either free-floating or stuck to something. It looks like an alien brain, though. Not an impressive alien like a Xenomorph, though, more like the delicate aliens from War of the Worlds that died from a cold. It might also be a good way to start the grossest water balloon fight in the world too. Just don’t expect to keep your friends after it.
The actual fish itself may just look like a messed up eel, but the real snot comes in when you touch it. Don’t interact with this animal unless you have a strong stomach. The hagfish secrete a highly sticky slime substance that is sure to turn anyone’s stomach. The fish has 100s of glands that secrete this mucus when captured and held and it can produce up to 20 liters or 5 ¼ gallons of slime. The mucus not only helps the hagfish get out of any unwary predator's jaws, but it also clogs up the predator's gills which can pretty effectively suffocate them. A fun fact about these animals is that they are the only known living organism that has a skull but no vertebral column. They also haven’t evolved in 300 million years because fossils of hagfish found from that period are almost identical to hagfish today. Why mess with a good system, right?
3. Bone Eating Snot Flower
Osedax mucofloris is a subspecies of Osedax. The worm was given its name, bone eating snot worm because it does look a lot like snot. Also, it does eat bones. Not a creative day for science when this was discovered. The bones that this worm is eating are mostly whale bones, but they will eat virtually any bone that you give them. They consume them through a bacteria that hangs out in their little mucus cloud that will burrow into the bones and devour it from the inside so that the worm can absorb the nutrients. The species that you see are all female, the male of the species are microscopic, and they latch onto a female at birth and stay with her forever. These weird-looking things fill an important role in the ecosystem because they decompose and recycle dead matter. It’s grosser because thousands of these worms will cover a whale carcass meshing all together until it just looks like somebody trimmed the whale carcass in a carpet.
2. Cthulhu Larva
Abyssal sea cucumber, sea pig, or Cthulhu Larva, whatever you want to call it, it’s still gross. They live 1, 000 meters down in the ocean, and they are pretty standard down there. They reproduce a lot, and each deepsea trawl for them can yield up to 300 to 600 specimens. They can be found in almost all of the areas around the world, but they are less common in more extreme water conditions like water that is too warm or too cold. The Cthulhu larvae name were apparently earned because of it’s weird and upsetting appearance. The tentacles look like they could expand at any time and take you. The so-called tentacles are just appendages that are supposed to make it easier for this slug-like animal to eat. So maybe this creature isn’t all that unusual. The joke will be on us someday when they reveal that they were just mini Cthulhu and we are all screwed because we made fun of their appearance.
Might want to stay near a toilet for this entry. Didymosphenia geminata or rock snot is a type of algae that has become a sort of nuisance in some freshwater sources. It’s an invasive species that is native to the northern hemisphere, but no one told the rock snot that. They’ve been spreading more and more in Australia, Argentina, New Zealand, and Chile. Even in its natural water, it is now being considered an invasive species because of its rapid spread. It’s been doing this since the 1980s and although the spread doesn’t pose a risk to humans, the ecosystem that it takes root in can suffer from its entrance. The ideal environment for this algae is cold water with low nutrient levels, and the species can be spread from source to source by just a single drop of water. New Zealand has even released guidelines to stop the spread. You should check for the algae, clean all items for at least a minute under hot water with bleach, and then make sure to dry them. Only you can prevent the spread of rock slime. That’s what Smokey the Bear said, right?
Here are 13 most terrifying creatures out there some so weird you might not have even heard of them like the scary zombie fungus!

6. Japanese Spider Crab
This giant monstrosity looks like it was made by a mad God drunk with power. It already looks like it was transplanted right out of a horror movie so there wouldn’t be much work to do. This crab has the longest legs of any marine crab, it has a leg span from claw to claw of 12 feet. The length of the crab's legs has led to it being a favorite among Japanese fisherman. The overfishing of this species has led to a conservation effort being put into effect. The crab is actually very gentle and it’s not likely to eat you. Up the size of this crab and you end up with Cloverfield monster 2.0. They even look similar. Now time to go destroy New York.
5. Fanged Fish
Not much is known about this fish that was caught in Maybelle, TX in 2014. The picture was posted to a citizen's’ blog and they talked about friends bringing the 6 foot and 8-inch fish to be weighed. The fish weighed in at 150 pounds and there is no doubt that those wicked teeth definitely leave an impression. We could see this fish hunting down bikini clad sorority sisters in its own horror movie.
4. Komodo dragon
Komodo dragons may not look as threatening as their namesake tends to be depicted but, they are still not to be messed with. They are scavengers so they will eat pretty much anything that they can find. They have also been known to feast on humans if they can find them, which they often don’t because we don’t exactly run into each other at the grocery store. Their venom is a lethal cocktail of various unpleasantness. The most notable of these venoms is an anticoagulant that will stop the blood from clotting in a wound. Seeing a komodo dragon eat is downright horrifying like you see in this jaw breaking photo of one shoveling a huge piece of meat in it’s mouth. Along with the anticoagulant, there is also a host of different paralytic toxins. Basically, don’t meet these things in a dark alleyway.
How does this small seemingly harmless bird get a name like a butcherbird? Well, these birds have some quirky little eating habits. They actually impale their prey like a shish kabob on thorns or anything else that would work to impale something. The impaled prey can be saved for later eating or, in one of the most messed up mating practices in the animal kingdom, attract mates. Do I even need to explain why this would work in a horror movie? Anyone who doesn’t want to be impaled on a spike understands why this has a major horror factor. If Alfred Hitchcock was still alive he would have done this movie already.
2. Zombie Fungus
Don’t know what you’re looking at? That is zombie fungus or entomopathogenic fungus. There are many types of this fungus but, they all affect their host with a mind control. That’s right, mind control. The fungus will grow and feed on the insect, all while altering the host's behavioral patterns. The fungus needs an exceptionally high humidity level to grow so they are most common in tropical forests in Thailand and the Brazilian rainforest. This fungus can singlehandedly destroy entire ant colonies. An interpretation of this fungus has already been explored in the video game The Last of Us with a mind-controlling fungus being spread among humans and creating the zombies in the game. The game is definitely right, though. If this fungus ever spread to humans we would be rightly screwed.
The botfly is arguably the most disgusting and unsettling bug in the entire world. Botflies are parasites that burrow into the flesh of their host to lay their eggs and they even have a very special species that only preys on humans. You can see this this photo a man has been selected to host these terrifying larvae on and in his back! There is no easy method of removal either. You can’t even just squeeze or rip off the larvae because the fluids in their body can cause anaphylactic shock. This is way worse than the bugs in The Wrath of Khan. Sure, they don’t control your mind or anything but, the gross-out factor is high and the gore that comes hand in hand with this parasite would make something fierce on screens. Also, that itching sensation you’re feeling all of a sudden is definitely one of these monsters. You should panic now.
