Chickens, famously, have feathers; however, they are fully exposed when they are just little baby chicks. Those feathers come out after they’re fully developed and need to grow back simultaneously. Thus, we have images like this picture.
This chicken has to regrow an extensive collection of feathers, and it looks like the kind of thing that trypophobe’s won’t want to look at for too long. It’s the opposite of lots of little holes, but it has the same kind of energy. Our guess is that if you have even a little bit of a hole phobia, you will be triggered!
Stay Away From Sour Candies
What's the backstory of this tiny gross hole piece, and why is it here? The person who took the photo likes to indulge in sour candies. We can respect that. Too many sour candies, however, and your tongue might decide to slough off a layer of skin.
We cannot, in good faith, respect that, especially since it ends up with something like this happening. Trypophobes aren't a fan of it, thanks to all the little openings (where your taste buds might have once rested), and the rest of us don't like it since thinking of our bodies shedding like that is very not cool.
The Many Craters of a Mosque
This picture of the Sheikh Lotfollah Mosque in Isfahan, Iran, lets us take a look at a beautiful facade that is more than four hundred years old. All those little dimples and holes must have taken years to get just right, but not everybody is going to appreciate them with trypophobia.
Mosques are brimming with style, and this sort of intricate detail is everywhere, both on the exterior and the interior. Sure, they aren't precisely holes, but they're just as likely to be a trigger as some of the other pictures on this list. The dark shadows aren't helping either!
A Bowl of Bees
As long as they aren't stinging you, bees are pretty great. Still, there's an extensive collection of people out there who won't be too happy to see a bunch of bees building a nest in a glass bowl that is right next to the house. Honey and pollination are one thing, but all that buzzing can make things difficult.
Plus, the nests are literally just lots and lots of holes. Just holes upon holes upon holes. For the cringed trypophobe, this is just about a worst-nightmare situation. So make sure your empty glass bowls are protected, everyone. You are very welcome!
Holes are a common thing in nature for many reasons – nests, dens, and mouths are just a couple of possible examples. Another possible explanation is giving birth, just like this Suriname toad is going through. This kind of toad lays eggs that meld onto its back.
In fact, even those who aren't scared of little holes probably won't like seeing this thing on the front step. The tadpoles grow until they're ready to hatch from their eggs, which is just about as cool as you think it is (whether that's a lot or a little). We dare you to scroll!
