This one looks like a gross extraterrestrial substance, but we know exactly where it came from. Somebody purged a chemical pump into a bucket and got this as a result.
Yay. The explanation is that this is two parts expanding foam with two parts epoxy, so, it has this goopy, glue texture with millions and millions of tiny bubbles and holes. Do you want to touch it? We want to touch it. It looks like gross gum, but at least there’s a lot of it. Enough for the entire class, even. Nobody will ask you for gum again.
Lizard Skin Makes Us All Shiver
Who doesn't love bearded dragons? We can't think of a single person. However, like all lizards, these big beasties occasionally shed skin. That means that we get to "enjoy" peeling off a layer of rough skin that has lots of bumps and ridges and little holes.
We don't think this is as bad as some of the other pics on this list, but it has a certain ick factor. Still, we also bet that plenty of people out there find peeling off a lizard's skin weirdly enjoyable, like popping bubble wrap. This dragon quality never comes up in fantasy books.
Most of the time, ladybugs are a part of the insect family. They have red and black patterns on their backs, and cute, round little bodies, and they also like eating smaller bugs that will often eat plants that humans enjoy. But what happens when a lot of them gather together in one place?
Lots of aphids get eaten, we bet. Does anything else get done? Probably not. It's not like they're in a union. People with trypophobia might get a little creeped out, as will those that aren't fond of bugs. Hopefully, there's nobody out there that is a twofer.
The Time of the Bugs
In the west, cicadas only appear every seventeen years, in a strange cycle of around one single season before they disappear again? Billions and billions of them come out of nowhere, make a ton of noise, and then retreat.
Most people find them to be little more than an interesting detail of their lives (as long as they don't have to do too much yard work), but people who have trypophobia will find things tougher for them every seventeen years. The patterns in this picture come from the cicadas working their way up out of the ground where they hibernate.
End My Delicious Misery!
Candy corn is a contentious topic once the weather starts to turn. Some people love it. Some people hate it. However, one way or another, nobody can deny it's an October staple, with plenty of kids collecting it on Halloween.
Another Halloween classic is the humble Jack-o-lantern, which is one of the few holiday decorations that require lots of sharp knives. These ladies have combined the two to make one of the most memorable October oddities we've ever seen. We really like it, actually, but someone that doesn't like lots of small holes probably won't be as fond of it.
