Halloween may already be near its end, but if you’re having trouble getting in the ghoulish spirit ahead of trick or treating or the witching hour, check out these 19 creepy critters and monster themed animals to help you be more David S Pumpkins and less David S No-Fun-kins. Instead of the normal explanatory captions, I’m opting for as little detail as possible. After all, the unknown is most terrifying of all!
1. Vampire Squid
While the squid isn’t particularly scary, its name sure is…sort of.
2. Halloween Pennant
Not scary, but Halloween-y!
3. Death’s Head Hawkmoth
Named of course for the skull like mark on its back.
4. Yeti Crab
Both named after a monster, and sorta creepy!
5. Gila Monster
Okay, again, not really creepy, but it’s got the word monster in its name!
6. Goblin Shark
Finally, a creepy one.
7. Ghost Faced Bat
But now we’re back to the “not creepy, but merely named after a monster” category…
8. Skeleton Shrimp
9. Vampire Bat
And again…unless you do find them scary?
10. Halloween Crab
11. Black Halloween Snake
You get the point
12. Sea Lamprey
And we’re back! Look at those teeth and try not to shiver!
13. Purple Frog
Creepy, purple, and just purely unsettling.
14. Frilled Shark
No frills on this one, just spookiness.
Okay, it might just be me, but Aye-Aye’s are terrifying.
16. Tufted Deer
This doesn’t even look real…but it is! *muwahahaha*
17. Japanese Spider Crab
19. Tongue-Eating Louse
Look closely into the mouth of the clownfish, and be afraid.
