From an infestation of snakes to a mysterious creature in your toilet bowl, we count eight of the creepiest creatures found in homes!
8 – Giant Spiders,
- After a particularly rainy summer, residents in the town of Macclesfield started noticing a huge spike in the number of spiders.
- While this isn’t too uncommon, the creepy thing is these spiders were much larger than normal – some even larger than mice!
- This wave of giant spiders terrorised local residents, with one family reporting spiders hanging around their young son’s room and another claiming a spider chased his terrified wife from room to room!
7 – Big Brown Mass,
- In 2015, a newlywed couple who had just returned from their honeymoon got a shocking surprise when they looked into their toilet bowl. The creature lurking in there looked like something out of a horror movie. It was a large brown mass with ears and whiskers.
- The man took a photo of this terrifying Goosebumps creature and posted them online. Everyone was stumped. Not even a zoo director knew what it was, although some theorise it was a small rodent like a rat or a mole.
- The couple accept that they will probably never know the identity of the creature, but the incident has taught them a valuable lesson: always look before you sit down.
6 – Python,
- One morning an Australian woman woke up to find an intruder in her kitchen! IT wasn’t a man wielding a knife; it was a monstrous seventeen-pound python! The giant reptile had somehow gotten inside the woman’s secure home and perched itself on her kitchen counter.
- Thinking quickly, the woman called two professional snake trappers who swooped in to save the day. It turned out the monstrous reptile had just eaten an unlucky neighbourhood cat.
- It’s possible it was raiding the woman’s fridge for something to wash kitty down with.
5 – Chicken Witchcraft,
- A pleasant afternoon of renovating their dream home quickly turned into a nightmare for a Pennsylvanian family. Hidden in the walls were dead chickens, old spices and other ritualistic objects!
- It turned out the previous home owners had practised a freaky Dutch folk magic called Pow-Wow. The dead chickens were supposed to ward off sickness, but they instead made the homeowners feel sick to their stomachs.
- They told reporters they were “shocked, horrified, and disgusted” at the discovery. The worst part is that removing the carcasses cost them $20,000 and they’re still struggling to get rid of the smell of dead animals.
