Land of the Lost Unfortunately Found

Good news everyone! The World Wildlife Fund has learned that Southeast Asia’s Mekong Delta is actually a terrifying lost world that makes Jurassic Park look like a goddamn petting zoo. In the last decade, scientists working in the region have "discovered" (read: were eaten by) over 1000 heretofore unknown abominations including giant spiders, deadly pit vipers, a bright pink millipede made of cyanide, and big-ass rats previously thought extinct for 11 million years. See below for pics and video of a mere handful of these newly discovered hell beasts.

Thank you, Science for, once and for all, proving that there is no God. No benevolent deity would ever dream of such monstrosities. Creatures this grotesque could only be the product of an uncaring and rudderless universe.

Video and stills. Not for the weak of heart.

An interactive slide show. Enjoy the horror at your own pace.
