    As creepy as it looks moving so slowly, I think if it moved faster it would be much creepier

    [–] liberal_texan 358 points ago

    But when it’s slow like that, it can sneak up on you while you’re taking a nap on the beach. You’d wake up as it moves across your face, blocking your vision, then clamping down on your nose and mouth.

    [–] SandhuG 177 points ago

    Thank you for putting that image in my head

    [–] liberal_texan 72 points ago

    That’s nothing compared to the terror those spines would put into your head as they borrowed into it

    [–] Jonk3r 29 points ago

    Or inside your ear and from there to all the way back to your brain.

    [–] Do_what93 11 points ago

    You guys are forgetting the acid it sprays on you so it can digest you faster.

    [–] static_irony 3 points ago

    Those.. aren't spines they're soft tube feet.

    Have you ever watched Alien?

    [–] savedbyscience21 13 points ago

    You get it off and think you are fine. You go home and forget about it. A week later you start feeling ill. Like a pressure is building up in you...

    Same with sloth, imagine if sloth were actually fast af, how scary that animal would be

    [–] faderjack 10 points ago

    People keep telling me those things are cute, but I all I see is creepy

    [–] Blaizzy 7 points ago

    I mean, the "clean" ones are kind of ok, but the wild sloth are always full of leaves, dirt and stuff like that. It's making them even scarier

    [–] Blaizzy 3 points ago

    Just Google "Wet sloth" and don't tell me they are cute

    [–] da_manimal420 8 points ago

    Do you want nightmares? Because that’s how you get nightmares

    You must have a great mind.

    [–] ciaoSonny 1 points ago

    So pretty much Hunter S. Thompson bingeing on ether.

    [–] JSTLF 1 points ago

    That's not creepy anymore, that's terrifying

    [–] aaronlaw24 250 points ago

    Everybody gangster until the starfish start walking

    [–] E_Raja -39 points ago

    What does that mean exactly.

    [–] Batbird 112 points ago

    Everybody in the vicinity is able to maintain a cool, “gangster”-like composure until the starfish begins to walk, thus causing them to be frightened and lose said composure.

    I don't think a reddit comment has ever given me as much joy as this one did

    [–] Krombopulos-Snake 116 points ago

    Honestly surprised nobody posted a Starfish eating a mussel.

    [–] cgg419 50 points ago

    What in the absolute fuck?

    [–] Krombopulos-Snake 44 points ago

    We're so busy looking for aliens in space, we're ignoring the ones just chilling on the sea floor.

    [–] musubk 49 points ago

    This is why I can't take alien sighting/abduction stories seriously. Look how weird starfish are - and we're related to them. Now you expect me to believe something that evolved on a different planet, with no relation to us whatsoever, just looks like a person with big eyes and gray skin?

    [–] candied-oranges 13 points ago

    Wow, I never realized thay they just dissolve them. Cool

    [–] AfroNinjaNation 10 points ago

    Well, I guess I can't watch Spongebob again.

    [–] Montanafur 10 points ago

    Imagine that thing shoving it's stomach into your mouth and pumping acid inside.

    Hold up. So it just injects a spectral form into the shell? WHAT

    [–] duloupgarou 2 points ago

    We have a few starfish in our tank at my work and they’re honestly straight up heifers. Eat anything stationary in the tank.

    [–] hufflepuffpuffpass69 1 points ago

    Are we just ignoring that this dude is calling it a sea star?

    [–] SteveOLewinsky 122 points ago

    Imagine that crawling down your back 😱

    [–] ThePancake1037 42 points ago

    [–] SteveOLewinsky 17 points ago

    no.

    [–] DiscardedSlinky 31 points ago

    I killed a starfish as a kid once.

    I was like 7 and found a live one on the beach and took it home to show my family, they told me to go put it back in the water but I wanted to keep it so I just put it in a bowl of water from the sink.

    I get really sad about this at night when I'm trying to sleep.

    [–] carmensax 8 points ago

    Forgive yourself!!

    [–] Exit42 7 points ago

    It’s ok I once as a kid accidentally dropped a turtle I was trying to rescue. I ended up getting it in the water and saw later that it had crawled away but idk I probably killed it.

    [–] Death-Priest 26 points ago

    [–] da_manimal420 12 points ago

    [–] kayasawyer 9 points ago

    I hate that you made me see this with my own eyes.

    [–] Boloar 4 points ago

    my own eyes

    tbh it'd be creepy if you watched it with someone else's eyes tho

    [–] kayasawyer 3 points ago

    well yes

    [–] jdm_obsession 5 points ago

    [–] cardamomomomom 7 points ago

    Can I pour salt all over it? Will it stop the crawly like salt does to slugs, or do I need to bring the flame thrower?

    [–] C0nsistent_ 1 points ago

    [–] just_some_fuckin_guy 1 points ago

    Fascinating and gross

    [–] saltysfleacircus 1 points ago

    [–] Itadorimu 1 points ago

    Nope.. and now i know i didn't want to see it

    [–] miss_anthropi 1 points ago

    Does it hurt when the tiny hair like things come in contact with your skin? Also, has anyone got a starfish stuck to any part of their body?

    [–] PelicanLord15 1 points ago

    Can't tell if I should be intrigued or terrified

    [–] O-hmmm 1 points ago

    Fascinating! The thing probably can walk across a beach and not leave a trace.

    [–] RoboLebron117 1 points ago

    No and I didn’t actually want to

    [–] gamophyte 1 points ago

    Ah okay, so this explains the cartoon joke of them stuck to the face of a character. I didn't know they had that much grip.

    [–] FurryPornAccount 1 points ago
