Most plants on Earth terrible

This cute fungus looks like chewed gum oozing blood and smelling of strawberries. But do not try to eat it, because it will be the last, "delicacy", which you can taste in your life.
The fungus is known to mankind since 1812 and is considered inedible, ie once, in the dark times pretemnye lived genius who sacrificed for the glory of science with their lives, to warn the children from eating this "delicacy".
In addition to its outstanding external qualities, this abomination has antibacterial properties and contains chemicals or blood thinners. What can I say, soon, this fungus can be a substitute for penicillin (which, incidentally, was removed from the fungus species Penicillium notatum). If you are missing a thrill, and you are going in to what may perpetuate his name in the annals of history (Darwin Award and the title of the most stupid suicide on Earth have you considered already in the bag), just lick this natural wonder ...

2. Puppet Glazkov / DOLL'S EYE
In the best case, this "beauty" looks like an alien weed, and at worst to the dug-in totem impaled him with human eyes, a serial killer who marked the burial place of all of its 666 victims.
This unusual plant has been called "doll eyes." There is also less saying the name of this horror - white black cohosh.
No features other than their appearance this plant does not have, you can even taste it, then tell about their feelings.

Sometimes, watching these creatures, you begin to wonder about the sanity of the creator. Of course, there are times when and nasty things are in fact quite pleasant to the taste, smell ... but this is not the case: the fungus, called "stinking horn octopus," not only disgusting looks and smells, so that can not be described words.

4. diabolical CLAW / DEVIL'S CLAW
"Devil's Claw" - is something like our rough burr 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 an evil spider-eating, which is just waiting to grab you in the throat.
When these demonic contraption "were carried out" just in Arizona, where indigenous Americans (Indians) are woven baskets and terrifying kind of laid out their entire "minefields" that the enemy preferred to get round. Today "demonic claws" is already fully occupied all the Northwestern United States. I feel, soon this abomination gets up to Mother Russia, so if you do not want to fall victim to the "devil's claw", start stocking "Roundup" and build barricades pregraditelnye now.

All the same, Batman is not randomly selected symbols deterrent criminal population Gotham bat. For these darkspawn terrible: small evil eyes, thin legs with large hooked nogtischami, sharp teeth, plump body, unevenly 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 are one of those who consider them cute little animals, feeding fruktikami, you probably change your mind when one of these creatures clutched in your face and suck up a drop all your blood ... but, unfortunately, for you will be too late .
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 to be sure beam flagelliform tentacles. It is a product of childhood nightmares became known as the Chinese myshetsvet.

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 are incredibly popular in China and Japan. If you recall sortiropodobnyh chain restaurants, it is not difficult to understand why the Chinese baldeyut from eating this gimmick, but from the prim Japanese I did not expect.
In fact, the hand of the Buddha - a strange kind of lemon, which often in addition to skin did not. Fruktina attracts Eastern peoples are not only an unusual appearance, but also for its aromatic properties in Japan because it is brewed tea, while China kept the house as a talisman, which brings home good luck, happiness, drives off any evil spirits and bestows longevity. Even these tentacles do Limonov jam, marmalade and smelling the perfume of violets.
And some of the serious: it is generally believed that the Buddha can be tricky to wrap, fold and turn their fingers in time to prayer and at 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.

7. Venus Flytrap / DIONAEA MUSCIPULA
I will assume that no more then a couple of million years ago, these monsters devouring dinosaurs were the true masters of the planet. But evolution - is the enemy of extremism and all the giants have either died out or survive to become more terrestrial measurements, so today flycatcher - a small plant, feed exclusively on insects, caterpillars, slugs and frogs.
How it works: Inside the mouth-sheet is full of tiny sensory hairs. The victim, crawls on a leaf, these annoying hairs, which in turn give a signal to reduce the cells of the inner part of the plate and the "fall" begins to close. After some time, the inside of the plate begins to secrete digestive fluids and exhausted by unsuccessful attempts to get out the victim slowly digested (this process takes a long time. Eg, to digest slug flycatchers take about a week).

What makes a healthy juicy apple rotting lump abominable 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, and cedar apple fruit beyond recognition. About this abomination even right now, you can shoot horror: infected fruits in just a few months turned into hideous monsters. Here's how it works: from a tiny fungus spores developing spherical body of impressive size - 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 vicious little Cthulhu.

9. Rafflesia / RAFFLESIA
Rafflesia - parasitic plant of the family Euphorbiaceae (Euphorbiacea) with the largest flowers in the world, some of which reach a diameter of 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 tropical rain forests of Indonesia and the Philippines.
It is not unusual plant stem and roots, and it is the main part of a giant flower with five petals fleshy.
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 and its incredible size, and a terrible smell of corpses that come from him.
Because of this unusual smell Rafflesia flowers pollinate conventional fly. By the way the flowers - the only thing that's left from her relatives by Rafflesia - the "normal" is covered with seed plants. Leading a parasitic way of life in the "body" of the vines, Rafflesia has completely lost any signs of plant - roots, stems, photosynthetic capacity, and all the nutrients the parasite gets out of the "body" host.
Rafflesia seedling gradually introduced into the roots of the host plant by means of suckers (haustoria). Those parts of the germ, which for some reason were outside the "body" master just die. Presumably, the Rafflesia seeds, awakening to germinate under the influence of discharge potential host plants. These substances and orient the direction of growth of seedlings.


Fruits "runic Flower" have frightening forms that make them look like little potato people.
Chinese uproot these tiny underground inhabitants of the land, in order to use them naked defenseless body as a panacea for all ills, including impotence, cancer, AIDS, dementia, etc., etc ...
Before we turn to the life-giving powder, men are subjected to various tortures, including: boiling, osvezhevyvanie, soaking in moonshine and dismemberment.
Mark my words, the potatoes will soon get tired of Chinese oppression and revolt against the whole of humanity. So several times think before you decide to restore their "mojo" with "Rune flower".
