The best part about the internet is that there is always something to suit your mood. What are you in the mood for today? Some random facts? Or maybe a movie? What about something for entertainment purposes? If you’re feeling the latter approach, come and check out these creepy animal pictures. You are bound to feel a little freaked out so we’re giving you fair warning. We do hope that you enjoy, though!
Gloves Are Coming Off
You can hate cats all you want, but you cannot deny that the soft padded flesh underneath their toes is beyond cute. Often a soft shade of pink, this area actually helps cats move without making a sound.
Interestingly enough, a Sphinx cat’s paws differ in this regard. We really thought this was a bat for a moment. Yikes! Please don’t hurt us. We come in peace!
Cult of Eels
The mass is divided on their opinion on eels. Would you eat an eel? Many despise them for their slippery, slimy texture paired with their weird body and long antennae.
It’s safe to say that after seeing this picture, we will never drift close to freshwater bodies where eels live. Even though they might be deemed harmless, we’d still wet our pants having to swim alongside them. They look like Green anacondas!
A Fishy Proposal
Proposals are unique for each couple. After all, each to their own, right? Some people might like extravagant flash mobs while others might want to keep it simple with a candlelit dinner.
If someone wants to propose by arranging lobsters to form the words, “Said Yes,” why not? Besides the terrible smell, it’s kind of cute! And maybe for a fisherman, this is a dream proposal.
When you thought mother nature couldn’t get creepier, we present to you the Sheepshead fish. Their heavy dentition helps them to crush and grind their diet, which mainly consists of mollusks and general shelled creatures.
Fascinating as it is to observe a fish with a row of human-like teeth, it also makes us feel somewhat uneasy, doesn’t it? Not to worry though as Sheepsheads don’t harm humans. They look way scarier than they actually are!
Portal to Hell
Dogs are generally suckers for high-velocity winds. Don’t you just love it when you’re cruising on the highway and see a nearby car with a canine peeking out of the window?
It has its mouth open as the wind crashes into its face and makes it the happiest dog alive. Well, Great Danes should not be photographed for that purpose. Due to their large stature, they have a lot of skin near the mouth. So when the leaf drier hits its mouth, a portal to hell was opened.
Blood Sucking Madness
Mosquitoes… These pesky little creepers are blood-sucking thieves that feed off animals. They are so irritating that some people have a phobia of them, known as Entomophobia. If you’re one of them, we’re extremely sorry.
Also, not to worry, the world isn’t being taken over by giant mosquitoes. This happens to an insect that simply got too close to the camera lens. However, after this, we’d be happy if we never saw this insect again.
Humans aren’t the only species that are born with mutated body parts. And while chicks are widely considered to be one of the cutest babies in the animal kingdom, we’re sure we can make you rethink that with this picture.
Born with a birth defect, this chick landed on earth with four legs instead of two. When you look at it from the front, it’s the same adorable ball of fluff that everyone loves. However, when you pick the baby up, things get weird.
Creepy Yet Cute
This bird must have been what Ava Max was thinking about when penning the song “Sweet but Psycho,” but seriously, look at those button eyes. Now look away! We can’t stare for too long without feeling scared.
So, it makes total sense that these creatures are commonly known as Ghost Birds. With their demonic eyes and sharp beaks, we’d stay clear of this animal. Whether it be day or night…
Two Predators in One
As if a crocodile and a hippo weren’t scary enough on their own, the world needed a hybrid creature. While we like the liger, the sturgeon is no friend of ours.
With the spiny body of a crocodile and the wide head of a hippopotamus, sturgeons can grow up to six feet long. They are hunted as freshwater fish. Though they look as if they want to hunt us humans. Eeeek!
Check This Mouth
From the abyss of the internet, we have found one of the weirdest fishes to ever exist. With lips similar to the Kardashians, this fish also comes with a strange set of teeth.
They are named Squaliform sharks and have a set of blade-like teeth on either both jaws or on just the lower jaw. Enthusiastic Redditors, please refrain from treating this fish as a human. It will bite you!
Supermodel of Dogs
It’s funny how often celebrities have been found to resemble animals. The case is also applicable the other way around, like this dog that looks way too much like a human for its own good.
Being the owner of a very shiny coat and beautiful blue eyes, its features could give supermodels a run for their money. Just look at this piercing gaze! We bet all the female dogs would be swooning over him.
Counting Sheep at Night
When sleep is elusive, we often consider counting sheep in our heads. This method, although childish, has proven to be effective for many. However, we believe that after seeing this picture, the opposite effect could occur.
What we mean is that the sheep look so creepy here that seeing them before bedtime could actually keep us up all night. Are we acting like big babies or are you also freaked out by this?
Needless to say, the Slenderman caused some of us to have pretty scary nightmares as a kid. If you thought the skinny legend wasn’t enough, here’s his canine companion.
Greyhounds are known as the cheetahs of the dog world for their incredible speed and energy. While more than happy to be your lounging buddy, they are also capable of running at 72 mph. No wonder they have such long and lean legs!
Giant Catfish Turned Dinosaur
Giant catfishes, despite their size and tainted reputation, are not capable of eating humans. We thought we’d start with that piece of information so that you would know not to feel threatened.
Though, this one found in a German lake was termed a “dinosaur” for its behemoth build. Also, did you know that these giant fish can grow up to be the size of a grizzly bear? Again, don’t be scared. They have the heart of a teddy bear.
Stairway to Heaven
Horses sleep standing up. Dolphins like to keep an eye open to catch some shuteye. Yet, sperm whales may be one of the oddest sleepers in the animal kingdom. These gentle giants like sleeping in groups near the surface of the water.
Here’s the catch: they sleep in vertical positions, which may make you think they are deceased and simply floating mid-water. Scientists have found that sperm whales are amongst the least sleep-dependent animals, only sleeping for 10 to 15 minutes at a time.
Don’t Shed the Fur
You thought bears were scary within all their furry glory? Wait until you see a furless one and it doesn’t leave your mind for three months straight. For many, a bear is nothing more than a missed opportunity at petting a fuzzy and alive stuffed animal.
Dolores the bear and a bunch of other female bears were suddenly affected by hair loss at a German zoo. Experts believed that it may have been caused by a genetic disorder, but the animals didn’t seem to be suffering from any other diseases.
The Demented Guard
It’s beyond us why people don’t like cats. They’re moody and fabulous all at once. Though, this photo might be a good indication as to why some people are so opposed to felines.
Imagine watching a scary movie on TV late at night and then coming across those scary eyes as you turn to grab the remote. We’d be spooked for months after. We might even need a permanent cuddle buddy to get through the night.
Mind Numbingly Terrifying
Many of us loved sock puppets growing up. These low-maintenance toys could entertain kids for hours. But beware! This is one sock puppet you do not want to cross paths with. Sharks have gotten a bad name for their exaggerated natures shown in movies.
Naturally, people jump when they hear this is a Frilled Shark. Looking like a cross between an eel and a shark, Frilled sharks are slow and unorthodox members of the Shark family. They swim below the surface of the water and pose no threat to humans.
Ready to Fight
Gazelles are adorable little jumpers that will steal your heart with their glassy eyes and thick coats. The one exception may be giraffe gazelles, also known as Gerenuks. Much like their name suggests, these antelope species like to stand on their hind legs when searching for greens to munch on.
Their heads are much smaller in comparison to the body. A stark contrast to their overall structure is their taut muscles. When captured from the right angle, a Gerenuk looks ready to fight you in the boxing ring.
What is your opinion on primates? Some people love them, others can’t stand them due to their eerie resemblance to humans. At times, we forget that we are but evolved forms of these animals.
Though not generally hostile, apes hold the power to rip a human to shreds. While the Orangutan is just as capable of hurting people, they’re known as being gentle giants for the most part. Try not to judge them too harshly!
Not a Cute Piggie
The effects of a nuclear explosion are known to be horrifying. Such seems to be the case for an accident that took place in the Soviet Union that left the world shocked. One of the sad consequences was this mutated piglet.
Honestly, we can’t look at its body for long without getting the chills. Poor little piggie. The radiation melted its body to such an extent that we don’t know where the head ends and the body begins.
A fellow Australian would recognize Rosie the shark anywhere. The very deceased great white was preserved at the Crystal World Exhibition Centre in Devon Meadows, Australia.
Sadly, the park shut down in 2012, and Rosie was left to become a loner zombie fish. With her killer teeth protruding, Rosie is there to give every kid (and even some adults) nightmares. Are you frightened by her? It’s okay to say yes!
If you’re a cat lover then this next picture won’t scare you. If anything, you’ll find it cute. But for those who are more dog friendly, cats are known to be creepy animals that stare into your soul.
We’re presuming the person who took this photo is not the biggest cat person. The blunt caption is a dead giveaway. Truth be told, we’re kind of on their side. Those are the green eyes of gremlins!
Footballer on the Loose
The ocean is terrifying, to say the least. Just think of all the creepy, spine-chilling animals living near the bottom of the sea bed. Deprived of light, these aquatic animals have gotten used to the darkness which has deepened their outer color as well.
What you see in the picture is a Football fish, a kind of deep-sea anglerfish found in subtropical and tropical waters of the Pacific, Atlantic, and Indian oceans. This one, in particular, is a predator that washed up on a Californian beach.
We’ve seen too many weird animal puppets on the internet, but this time, we feast our eyes on a live dog that seems to have been turned into a puppet.
The dog was at the dentist when this was taken and it’s almost as if it knew that his teeth needed to be shown. What could have been a cute moment turned into an oddly terrifying one — thanks to the puppy’s lifeless eyes.
An Eerie Sight
Hiking alone in the woods is terrifying enough without having to see skinned animals lying all around. A skinned bear has an uncanny resemblance to what a human would look like once skinned. Unfortunately, this is an example of illegally trapping and poaching animals.
Poachers will skin the animals and leave the body to decompose in the middle of the open field. How sad is that? Come on humanity, let’s do better than this going forward!
Transparent Jelly Frogs
Frogs are known to be cute and harmless creatures but these jelly-like frogs that have been diaphonized are just wild. We can see all their organs inside and we don’t necessary want to.
Although deceased, these frogs have been preserved through a method that gives scientists a view of their organs and bones while maintaining tissue integrity. We for sure don’t want to be scientists after this!
One Redditor named these guys “horrible little muppet men” and we couldn’t agree more. Falcon chicks are rather goofy-looking, so we would probably start to feel uneasy if we had those beady eyes fixated on us.
Also, the creepiness is amplified here as there are so many eyes staring at you all at once. And heaven forbid they peck at us with those sharp beaks. We’d run so fast it would be like our bottoms caught on fire.
A naive Twitter user thought it would be hilarious if they stuck a pancake on their cat’s head. After all, “throw a cheese at your cat’s face” was a hilarious viral trend a few years ago. Turns out, pancakes aren’t half as funny as cheese.
In fact, they can give you nightmares. The holes cut out to show the eyes and mouth of the cat makes this feline look like a cartoon villain out to take your life.
A Two-Headed Dolphin
It seems like the internet is divided on dolphins. One section cannot get over their intelligence and kind behavior toward humans while the others despise them for their tainted backstory with animals of their own kind.
So, we can deduce that there are two parts to the story, just like this dolphin that washed ashore on a beach in Turkey. Scientists concluded that this case resembled human conjoined twins. Beyond creepy!
Firefox Has Frozen
Unlike alligators and special reptiles, foxes cannot hibernate in ice, so this little fella is pretty much gone already. It would have been sad had it not been for the open eyes.
If you have watched the movie Ice Age, you may be familiar with scenes where some of the side characters are frozen solid. This is that but in real life, and it’s giving us the creeps. In many regions around the world, the cold gets so bad that it freezes animals in place.
Peeping and Creeping
This is one of the reasons we love cats so much. It’s like they can sneak into spaces 1/10th their original size. However, when you pay attention to this cat squeezing its way out of a household vent, it’s rather disturbing.
Makes you understand better why they use the term “cat burglar.” Flexible by nature, cats can effortlessly cram in and out of smaller spaces. So, think twice before making your cat angry. After all, it has the intellect to plot your demise.
A Diver’s Nightmare
What first looks like an eye is nothing more than a harmless mollusk. The Giant Key Limpet is a northeastern Pacific Ocean species of limpet and they are oddly terrifying. Due to their intricate design, inexperienced divers could easily mistake them for a gouged-out human eye.
These are the biggest limpets out there and they eat algae to sustain themselves. They are virtually harmless to humans. Similar to abalone, Giant Key Limpets are edible, but could one really eat something like that? Debatable.
Don’t Swim Here
This is one of those pictures that make you do a double-take. What is that big brown patch in the pool? That’s a giant freshwater stingray, native to rivers and estuaries in Borneo and Southeast Asia.
They are capable of reaching up to 16.5 feet in length, including the tails. Some reports suggest finding giant stingrays weighing up to 1,300 pounds. However, this was never verified for obvious reasons. We’d be scared to even come near one!
Neighborhood’s Angry Grandpa
Every neighborhood has that one angry 60-something-year-old who absolutely hates being there. This is the man who probably has his doorbell rung eight times a day by the pesky kids running around, playing. Annoyed, he opens the door before spewing out a bunch of curse words.
That is exactly what this cheetah resembles. The growl and nose scrunch may be the best part. House cats do this all the time, reminding us that cheetahs are simply bigger cats.
With the increase of motorized vehicles over the past century, the number of animal deaths due to cars has continued to rise. In order to protect the precious wildlife, countries have begun building paths, tunnels, and overpasses. These can be used by the animals to safely cross from one area of the road to the other. Here are some of the most interesting examples from around the world.
Monkey Bridge – Brazil
Brazil is a country covered in rainforest and heavily wooded areas. Because of this, the animals of that habitat often find themselves intermingling with their two-legged neighbors. This is dangerous, though, when it comes to speeding cars.
In order to keep wildlife, like monkeys, safe from becoming roadkill, many local areas have put up these rope bridges over the roads. This helps the monkeys travel from treetop to treetop, even when there are no trees, and they can do so safely.
Elephant Underpass – Kenya
This animal bridge is not so much for the safety of this animal, but more for the safety of the humans driving on the road. It does protect these majestic creatures from harm, as well, though. Imagine driving in a car and after you round the bend, there is a whole herd of elephants.
Hopefully, the driver was following the speed limit, because if not, it would be a catastrophe for both the driver and the animal. Thus, to protect both the human population and the ever-decreasing elephant population, there are several of these massive underpasses built in Kenya.
Animal Overpass – Banff
One of the largest wilderness areas in Alberta is in Banff National Park. Because it is home to tons of cute little creatures, it is very important to have animal overpasses built.
This one in Banff is under construction and will eventually be a lovely addition to the landscape of the park. Not only will it be aesthetically pleasing, but it will save many animals from dangerous conditions.
Ecoduct – Colorado
The Rocky Mountains of Colorado are rife with wildlife, as well, which often move from the crags of the mountains through the valleys. With wide-open spaces that are cut by roads and transportation routes, it can be a very dangerous trek.
Like in Canada, the government of Colorado opted to build ecoducts to ensure not only the animal’s safety but that of the human population, as well. This has saved countless lives.
Animal Overpass – France
Animal crossing first became a thing in the 1950s in France. Thus, some of the oldest crossings are beautifully crafted over the freeways and railway tracks in the French countryside. This one, in particular, is an amazing and lushly green path that allows animals to safely usher their young over the dangerous tracks.
From deer to rabbits and everything in between, these animals are capable of using this bridge to avoid speeding trains as they go from one beautiful village to the next.
Cattle Underpass – Australia
Cattle is a big business in a lot of countries. Australia has its vast, wide-open lands that are primed for cattle ranches. But some roads and freeways cut through this open land.
That means that there is a chance for major loss both with the cattle and with the humans driving on the road. That is why several locations in Australia have built cattle underpasses.
Animal Bridge – Arizona
When people think of animal crossings, most automatically think of vibrant and thick forested areas by the desert that are just full of life.
That is why the Transit Department in Arizona has built several bridges to help the vast amount of wildlife have safe journeys as they trek across the hot Sonoran desert. From coyotes to turtles, this well-built bridge allows them to get from point a to point b.
Amphibian Crossing – California
In California, there are a lot of amphibians and reptiles that have had their environment encroached on. Thus, the Caltrans Division of Environment Planning began developing what they call herptile (both reptile and amphibian) crossings.
Though there is no set documentation on where these creatures cross, adding some of these little tunnels under the roadways have saved many a life. They may not be the furriest and cuddly animals in the world, but they have a purpose in the ecosystem, so protecting them is vital.
Animal Crossing – Alberta
Canada is a country that has so much wilderness that it just makes sense to utilize these structures. With thousands of miles of highways and roads that cut through its natural beauty, constructing crossings to allow deer and other animals to safely pass over the road is a necessity.
The inclusion of these crossings periodically throughout Alberta is not only great for the animals but the drivers, as well. By building these, animal and human lives alike have been saved.
Toad Tunnel – California
In Davis, California, the people got tired of seeing squashed toads on the streets and freeways. In order to protect these amphibians, the people and officials built toad tunnels under the streets.
To make them a bit more festive, people also built little houses and buildings over them so that the toads would feel at home as they entered the tunnels to get to their next destination. It also makes for one cute Instagram post.
Ecoduct – Netherlands
The Netherlands is another country that is laden with wide green spaces that are full of creatures that live off the land. Often, these creatures have to move from place to place to make sure they have enough to eat.
In order to ensure their safety, as well as that of the drivers of this beautiful European country, many of these ecoducts, have been constructed.
Rope Bridge – Australia
Just because an animal flies doesn’t mean it won’t become a casualty of the road. In fact, with larger trucks, parrots and other birds can still be in great danger.
To decrease the occurrence of birds and other creatures being struck by vehicles on the open road, they have built several rope bridges in Australia. These bridges are strung high above the roads and allow the beautiful creatures to reach their destination unharmed and happy.
Wildlife Overpass – New Jersey
New Jersey has a lot more than the shore. It has tons of green spaces, and with the high frequency of traffic, the animals that call these spaces home were constantly in danger.
That is, until New Jersey grabbed onto the idea of wildlife bridges and ran with it. Constructing a few in key areas greatly limited the number of animal deaths due to cars.
Animal Overpass – Ontario
Much like Alberta and the rest of Canada, Ontario is covered with beautiful wilderness. Housed within that wilderness are tons of sweet, adorable animals. To alleviate roadkill and accidents, the government of Ontario opted to build some animal overpasses.
Not only did they build those overpasses, but they decided to decorate the outside with fine images so that the natural beauty of the land is maintained.
Squirrel Bridge – Oregon
We have all seen what happens when a squirrel meets a moving car, and no one wants that. It is sad and tragic, and these little animals are so cute. Thus, the people of Oregon have taken a page from other parts of the world and installed rope bridges across streets and freeways.
These little bridges are not only cute but help the four-legged nut foragers get from tree to tree without having to dodge the giant wheel of human transportation.
Crab Bridge – Australia
On Christmas Island, there is a great crab migration every year. Unfortunately, there were so many of these little red creatures crossing the streets and getting hit by cars.
Therefore, the Australian government decided to build several ways for the crabs to get up and over the thoroughfares of the beautiful island. That is when crab bridges became a thing, and they have saved thousands of crabs every year since they were built.
Ecoduct – Bobbligen, Germany
Germany’s freeways are full of high-speed drivers trying to get from city to city. Along those freeways, there are a lot of farms and woodlands that are full of creatures that migrate to look for new feeding grounds.
This beautiful green ecoduct is a way that deer and other animals can do just that. By building ecoducts like this, the German government has saved thousands of lives.
Animal Underpass – Banff
Canada has built lots of overpasses, but along with those, they have also invested in building a few underpasses. The design of the animal bridges solely has to do with the lay of the land. Sometimes, building an underpass is more effective than an overpass.
Either way, the bears and wild cats of Canada and the Banff National Park will be able to safely arrive at their destination.
Wildlife Overpass – Washington (Keechelus Lakes)
Animals are always moving from the safety of their homes to the local watering hole. That is why, in Washington State, many government organizations pulled together to build these functional and beautiful wildlife bridges near Lake Keechelus.
These bridges serve to allow those animals safe passage to hydration, and it has saved many animals’ lives, as well. It has also decreased the number of car accidents, so the construction of these bridges was quite plainly a life-saving project.
Bee Highway – Oslo
Bees are incredibly important to the environment and have taken a hit due to the growth of cities and the negative impact of cars on the environment. One of the biggest impacts is having buildings and roads in the way of their flight paths.
That is why several places in Oslo have built these bee highways. These structures make it easier for bees to go out to collect pollen and then find their way safely back to their hive.
Animal Underpass – Canada
All throughout Canada, there are overpasses and bridges built to lower the occurrence of animal accidents. This one is set in the middle of a wide-open space in one of the many National Parks.
The double underpass pictured here is one of the vast networks of ways that Canada preserves its precious wildlife and nature. By being so cautious with their natural resources, Canada has been able to maintain its vacation destination ranking.
Crab Tunnel – Christmas Island
Along with the crab bridges, Christmas Island also installed crab tunnels. Due to the landscape, there were just some areas where a tunnel made more sense than a tall bridge that would be entangled with trees.
In order to protect those hard-shelled little crawlers from being squished, the island dug under the roads and gave them another option. It also is good for crabs that may be a little short.
Ecoduct – Banff
It seems like you can drive more than a couple of miles without passing under an overpass or bridge in Canada. The same can be said for ecoducts, which are very similar to bridges.
This one in Banff National Park is not only effective but beautiful to look at. Topped with beautiful green shrubbery, the animals of Banff can feel safe and secure as they migrate across the street to a better part of the neighborhood.
Animal Tunnel – Finland
Sometimes, the underpasses or bridges for animals aren’t necessarily attached to a road. This is especially true for countries that have heavy winter activities like snowmobiles. In Finland, the government has built several animal tunnels under popular treks.
Just like with bridges, this makes sure that the wildlife of the area can get to where they are going without fear of being hit by humans enjoying the winter sports.
Wildlife Crossing – Belgium
Like many European countries, Belgium has plenty of areas where wildlife safety is a concern. Thus, several freeways are fitted with amazing and beautiful wildlife crossings. This helped maintain the safety of select endangered species, as well as everyday ones like deer and rabbits.
Keeping the roads free of carcasses also helps to preserve the lush natural beauty of the land. That is why the government and concerned citizens worked to get these built, and ever since then the number of animal lives saved is staggering.
Penguin Tunnel – New Zealand
A lot of people wouldn’t imagine penguins living in New Zealand, but they do. On the southern island, some areas suffered from these cute little waddlers becoming victims of hit and runs.
That is why there are cities that have not only put up penguin crossing signs but built tunnels to allow the flightless birds to cross the roads safely. This has kept the penguin population intact and safer than they were before.
Animal Bridge – Netherlands
In the Netherlands, they have several endangered species that they felt need to be protected from the dangers of the high-speed vehicles on their roadways.
Among these are the European badger and the wild boar, and because of this amazing bridge, these animals have been able to stay alive. This bridge is also a nice touch of beauty as you drive through the fields of the Netherlands.
Ecoduct – Germany
Everyone has heard of the Autobahn in Germany. It’s the freeway where there are sections with no speed limit, and that means danger for animals trying to cross the road. Hitting an animal at those speeds can cause serious accidents.
The German government has put several ecoducts in place to keep these tragedies from occurring. There is no reason for them to look hideous, though. Thus, like in other parts of the world, they made sure it was not only inviting for the animals but aesthetically pleasing for the humans driving on the roads.
Wildlife Overpass – Montana
Montana is almost nothing but wide-open stretches of wilderness. Its beauty and majesty are in abundance, and that includes its animal population. With hordes of migrating deer and antelope, not to mention bears and other wild animals, the highways of this beautiful state are in danger from the high-speed traffic.
In order to combat that, this state has placed several of these beautiful bridges over the highways and has saved thousands of animals by doing so.
Ecoduct – Luxembourg
Luxembourg is a small landlocked country in Europe that very few people think about when they think of travel through Europe. It’s bordered by both France and Germany, and many people travel through its beautiful countryside.
This makes travel for the four-legged inhabitants a little dangerous. To mitigate the danger and accidents caused by the animals strolling across busy freeways, several ecoducts have been built.
Salamander Tunnels – New England
With larger animals, you can veer when they step on the road. But with smaller animals like salamanders, there is no way. These little reptiles get hit probably the most out of all animals. This is especially true in New England, where there is a wealth of little creatures just scurrying around.
Some of these small creatures are endangered. So to protect them, the citizens partnered with the government and built tunnels under the highways in some spots to allow them to move freely.
Wildlife Bridge – Germany
Like we discussed in one of the bridge entries above, Germany is sort of famous for its autobahn. Many people all over the world dream of driving on a freeway with no speed limits. Though this rule is not for every autobahn, or even for an entire section of it, it is still thrilling.
However, when you think of the wildlife that may be trying to cross it, the idea soon becomes a horror movie in your mind. That is why Germany has constructed several wildlife bridges to keep this from being an ongoing concern.
Salmon Cannon – Washington
Not all animals are land-based, and even the ones that swim upstream need a little help getting over man-made structures. There are many dams built to help with water supplies and electricity among other things. This means that migratory fish, like salmon, sometimes get stuck behind them.
In order to help with this, one company began building Salmon Cannons to help out. We are not sure how safe it is. But it has saved some salmon from not being able to reach their spawning ground.
Ecobridges – Singapore
Singapore is a small island country in Southeast Asia. With its ever-growing population and urbanization, it has found itself encroaching on many natural habitats. This means that many animals find themselves roaming into places they shouldn’t be.
Urbanization means more roads and cars, and that means more safety concerns for these animals. To protect your wildlife, there are many eco-bridges like this one constructed throughout this nation.
Turtle Tunnel – Japan
When you travel to Japan, it is almost inevitable that you will end up on a train or two. One of the little known things that caused some concern for a while was turtles getting on the tracks. The high-speed trains would hit them, and that would be it.
The transit commission decided to install turtle tunnels in the tracks. These tracks are lower and follow along the tracks. This has saved many turtles’ lives since being implemented in select stations.
