I love Halloween for a variety of reasons – the fun costumes, parties, and of course – candy! But I’d have to say being able to showcase the scariest-looking creatures on this site is also one of the major highlights for me. So, may I present to you the creature a creature that scares the living crap out of me – this Amazonian Harvestman (Ampycus telifer). Even though it isn’t poisonous, this spider wouldn’t have to do much to deter me. It’s covered in bumpy protrusions and has a long spine-type thing on its butt. Eek!
You might see this guy staring in your next Hollywood horror movie. I really can’t think of a better monster to give you nightmares.
