If you want to know where this little terror came from, it came from the ocean depths – where all the horror of the world comes from. Okay, it’s a croc – not the reptile, the thing you wear on your foot. It was lost in the water and again covered in tiny little barnacles.
It also seems to have two layers, which gives oh-so-many miniature holes that are sure to get you covered in goosebumps as long as you don’t like that sort of thing. So what’s to do with such a thing? Prayer may help, or maybe closing your eyes.
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!
A Fungus Made for Fear
Well, it's a good thing that fungus can't come and get you while you're sleeping. That would be pretty terrible, and we hope nobody has those kinds of nightmares! Unfortunately, this parasitic fungus (Cyttaria Gunnii) still makes lots of tiny little holes, and that whole parasitic thing isn't exactly what we want to hear, either.
They look like eggs, but you don't want to make any omelets out of these things. We're sure this fungus is essential for some ecological reason – they break down dead cells or something like that – but we still don't have to enjoy looking at it.
A Fresh Batch of Fear Bread
Many people will sit at their favorite Ethiopian restaurant with a rumbling stomach and a healthy appetite. People with trypophobia, however, will have a little more on their minds. The bread with many holes you see here is called "injera," Rumor is it tastes lovely, but there are still a lot of tiny little holes where something scary could be hiding.
Best-case scenario, it hides some delicious sauce. Worst case, we're going to have to go with bugs. Pretty much every worst-case has to do with bugs. Think of one – it can still be worse if it doesn't have bugs.
