20 blood-curdling photos

Every human is afraid of something, no matter how small it may be. These fears can take different forms, like the fear of dangerous animals or the outdoors and nature. Some have a fear of people or of being confined, even the fear of the dark...

All these fears are rooted in our past experiences. They are also the result of beliefs that have been passed down over the years and even centuries. They can be concocted by our imagination, passed down from our parents, or developed based on things we know.

Some of the pictures below may scare you. Or at least you wouldn’t like to the person who took them.
