The most terrible planet plant
Below you will see some plants, the existence of which you never knew existed.
Doll eyes / Doll's Eye
In the best case, this "beauty" looks like an alien weed, and at worst on dug into the ground totem with human eyes impaled him that a serial killer has marked the burial place of all of its 666 victims.
This unusual plant is called "doll eyes." There is also a name that speaks less of the horror - white black cohosh.
No features other than their appearance this plant does not have, it can even taste it, then tell us about their feelings.
Bloody tooth / Hydnellum peckii
This cute fungus is similar to chew gum oozing blood and smelling of strawberries. But do not try to eat it, because it will be the last "treat", which you can taste in your life.
The fungus is known to mankind since 1812 and is considered inedible, t. E. Once, in the dark-pretemnye time there lived a genius who contributed to the glory of the science of his life, in order to warn the children from eating this 'delicacy'.
In addition to its outstanding external qualities, this abomination has antibacterial properties and contains chemicals, blood thinning. What they say, in the near future, this fungus can be a substitute for penicillin (which, incidentally, was removed from the fungus species Penicillium notatum). If you miss the thrill, and you are going into that at all costs to immortalize his name in the annals of history (The Darwin Awards and the title of the most stupid suicide on planet earth you count already in the bag), just lick is a miracle of nature ...
Other names: strawberries and cream (strawberries and cream, dental juice (the red-juice tooth), devil's tooth (devil's tooth), tooth fungus bleeding (bleeding tooth fungus).
Mushroom sea Anemone / Sea Anemone Mushroom and "filthy horn octopus" / Octopus Stinkhorn
At times, contemplating these creations, you begin to wonder about the sanity of the creator. Of course, there are times when and disgusting things are in fact quite pleasant to the taste, the smell ... but this is not the case: the fungus, known as "filthy horn octopus", not only disgusting look, but it stinks, so that does not describe words.
Side by side with him in Australia grows and his fellow-pong - mushroom sea anemones, fragrant trupochinoy.
In principle, these fungi are not poisonous, but you're unlikely to be able to try them on taste, because they pose such a fragrance that if you try to cram them into his mouth, you most likely just lose consciousness.
Both fungi are hitryuschie creatures and in order not to end his mortal existence on the sole of his boot compassionate Australians, at the beginning of their lives they pretend Below average whitish toadstools. After a while, these Crafty begin to bud. The process of turning into a horrible monster is just a couple of months: during this period the mushroom caps is divided into 4-5 pieces, forming a kind of petals.
The stench is not only a defense mechanism by gourmets who want to enjoy a new taste, but also a lure for flies, which are the main carriers of spores of these fungi.
Other names sea anemones: aseroe rubra, mushroom starfish (starfish fungus).
Other names "stinking horns octopus": Clathrus archeri.

Devil's claw / Devil's Claw
"Devil's Claw" - is something like the thorns of our turnips that while running a hand Tagged best friend repeatedly tangled in your hair. The main difference between the two hangers is in appearance: if the thorns burr - cute little lumps that and asks in his hands, the devil's claw is more like a vicious man-eating spider, just waiting to grab you in the throat.
When these demonic contraption "were carried out" only in Arizona, where the native Americans (Indians) were woven from these kinds of horrific basket and laid their whole "minefields" that enemies preferred to get round. Today, "demoniac claws" are already fully occupied all the North-west USA. I feel, soon this abomination gets up to Mother Russia, so if you do not want to fall victim to the "devil's claw", then start stocking "Roundup" and build barricades pregraditelnye now.
Other names: devil's claw / claw Devil (Devil's Claw).
myshetsvet Chinese / Chinese Black Batflowers
All the same, Batman is not randomly selected symbols to intimidate the population of Gotham criminal bat. For these darkspawn are terrible: small evil eyes, thin legs with large hooked nogtischami, sharp teeth, plump body, evenly covered with hair, and enormous wings - is not a description of a terrible monster from another low-budget, but no less scary, horror movie?
And if you're one of those who think their cute little animals that feed fruktikami, you probably change your mind, when one of these creatures clinging to your face and suck to drop all of your blood ... but, unfortunately for you It will be too late.
Of course, all of the above joke in the world there are only a few species of bats that feed on blood, which only attack animals in his weight class, but you must admit that the look without a shudder in the heart on flying across the sky rat is simply impossible.
Mother nature did their best to try to create the most horrible and disgusting at the same plant, endowing it with all the hallmarks of a bat and adding for good measure beam flagelliform tentacles. This is a product of children's nightmares became known as Chinese myshetsvet.
The flower is grown exclusively as an ornamental plant brave gardeners who literally nightmares cultivated, fertilized human pain, fear and despair. In reality, these people either steel balls or a complete lack thereof, because no normal person could not bear staying in his garden of plants that look as though he had just descended from the picture of mentally ill artists, trying to draw a vase and use human heads as incubators to nurture their larvae.
Hand of Buddha / Buddha's Hand
I do not know what kind of crazy genius decided that this thing is like a Buddha's hand, for me it is something more like a hentai tentacles that are about ohomutat another busty beauty.
In practice vile tentacles are quite edible, you can even say delicious, citrus fruits, which is incredibly popular in China and Japan. If you recall sortiropodobnyh chain restaurants, it is not difficult to understand why the Chinese from eating this baldeyut wonders, but by prudish Japanese I did not expect.
In fact, Buddha's hand - it is a strange-looking lemon, which often peel apart and there is nothing. Fruktina attracts Eastern peoples are not only an unusual appearance, but also for its aromatic properties in Japan because it is brewed tea, but China kept the house as a talisman that brings home good luck, happiness, drives away all evil and bestows longevity. Even these tentacles do Limonov jam, marmalade and smelling violets perfumes.
And some of the serious: it is generally believed that the Buddha can cleverly turn, fold and turn their fingers in time to prayer and in such moments, his hands are very similar to those monstrovidnye Lemons.
You are what you want, but if this is indeed the case, if I had the opportunity to meet in a dark alley or a good-natured Buddha Freddy Krueger, I would most likely chose the latter. Other names: Citron, tsedrat, Corsican lemons, Buddha's hand.
Venus Flytrap / Dionaea muscipula
I will assume that no more then a couple of million years ago, these monsters devoured dinosaurs and were the true masters of the planet. But evolution - is the enemy of extremism and all the giants have either become extinct or survive to become more terrestrial measurements, so today flycatcher - a small plant that feed exclusively on insects, caterpillars, slugs and frogs.
How it works: Inside the mouth-sheet are a lot of tiny sensory hairs. Sacrifice creeps on sheet annoying these hairs, which in turn serves to reduce the cell signal to the internal portion of the sheet and the "mouth" begins to close. After some time the inner part of the sheet starts to secrete digestive fluid and exhausted from unsuccessful attempts to get out victim starts slowly digested (this process takes a long time. H-p to digest slug flytrap require about one week).
Take the time to look on Youtube this plant eats frogs, grasshoppers .. it is impressive!
Cedar-apple rotting fungus / Cedar-Apple Rust Fungus
What makes a healthy juicy apple rotting lump nasty horror, giving shelter to the whole brood of worms? If your answer is cedar-apple rotting fungus (abbr. KYAGG), then most likely, you will be smart and just read this artful interweaving letters adorning the beginning of the story!
KYAGG - a fungal infection, transforming apple and cedar fruit beyond recognition. About this abomination though right now you can shoot a horror movie: the infected fruits are literally transformed into hideous monsters in a few months. Here's how it works: from a tiny fungus spores develop impressive size spherical body - from 3.5 to 5 centimeters in diameter when wet, this abomination is stratified, forming a repulsive mustache. As a result, pine nuts and apples turn into little evil Cthulhu.
And yes! We strongly recommend you to try them on taste. you never know what :)
Rafflesia / Rafflesia
In the photo the kids, eat the incomparable flavors of Rafflesia, which with the same success could push its "light" in the head point of the village public toilets.
Rafflesia - parasitic plant of the family Euphorbiaceae (Euphorbiacea) with the largest flowers in the world, some of which reach a diameter of over one meter and a weight of more than eleven kilograms. The parasite spends part of its life in the tissues of the host plant, which act as the vines of the family Vinogradov growing in the rainforests of Indonesia and the Philippines.
It is not unusual plant stems and roots, and its main part is a giant flower with five petals fleshy.
A giant parasite was discovered in 1818 during an expedition of Thomas Stamford Raffles Rafflesia on the island of Sumatra. Found then copy was 1 meter in diameter and weighed 6 kilograms. Travelers struck not so much the flower itself and its incredible size, and a terrible putrid smell that came from it.
Because of this unusual smell Rafflesia flowers pollinate conventional fly. By the way the flowers - the only thing left in the Rafflesia from her relatives - "normal" covered seed plants. Leading a parasitic way of life on the "body" of the vines, Rafflesia has completely lost any signs of plant - roots, stems, photosynthetic capacity, and all the nutrients parasite gets out of the "body" host.
sprout Rafflesia is gradually introduced into the roots of the host plant by means of suckers (haustoria). Those portions of the seedling, which for some reason were outside the "body" of the host merely die. Presumably, the Rafflesia seeds awaken to germinate under the influence of discharge of potential host plants. The same material and orient the direction of the growth of seedlings.
Chinese runic flower / Chinese Fleeceflower
The fruits of "runic Flower" have frightening forms through which they look like little potato people.
The Chinese uproot these tiny underground inhabitants of the land, in order to use them defenseless naked body, as a panacea for all ills, including impotence, cancer, AIDS, dementia and so on. D., And so on. D ...
Before you turn into a life-giving powder, men are subjected to various tortures, including: boiling, osvezhevyvanie, soaking in the moonshine, and dismemberment.
You mark my words, will soon get tired of potatoes from the Chinese oppression and revolt against the whole of humanity. So several times think before you decide to restore their "mojo" with the "Rune flower."

Porkupinsky tomato - grows in Madagascar five-foot monster, whose leaves are covered with fearsome spines orange.
