It would definitely be a bad thing for an intergalactic midnight snacker to come visit Earth. He'd drop by in his footies, plop down on our heads, and crunch and snap his way to the gooey planet core. We'll just have to go on looking bland and recommend another world for late night snackages.

With his horns held high and his leafy foliage flowing in the gentle breeze, king of the stick forest wades through his domain. Gentle nature-loving guests are treated with the utmost respect. Axe wielders and fire starters are summarily smashed and turned to twigs and bits of stone.

Nasty nasty cardigan vulture. Long needly teeth allow him to re-crochet his ever unwinding sweater-like shell from the guts of his already dead victims.

Welcome to Pigman's butcher shop where everything is advertised as "100% meat". Step on up to the counter and take your pick of duck, dragon head, someone's leg, or how about the catch of the day? The ham is especially fresh.

Late night lady cats strut around the town minding their own business until something unexpected happens. That's when they spring into action standing up tall and proud like a person, letting loose an ear-piercing scream and charging into battle to take no prisoners.

Sucker-footed and beak-faced creatures stir in the deep waters of ocean realms. Seen here floating as if weightless, this monster can propel through the water at alarming speeds. It does this by thrusting water from its tentacles and impaling anything in the way with a sharp hard beak.

When I confronted Easter Bunny about the implications of his racketeering scam with the tooth fairy he just laughed, laughed, and laughed some more. After about 20 minutes of straight laughter, cackling, and chuckles, I began to worry about my safety. It was then that I decided it was a good idea to stay a little longer and see where this was going.

Hairy unibrowed muppet from another dimension. Foggy and transparent as he teeters on the edge of 2 realities. One where he makes sense and another where we do.

At this point the path to safety is revealed. All we have to do is stand aside and let the polar opposite ends of this deformed slug creature duke it out. They will continue to be locked in a never ending battle for supremacy and to see who gets to be the mouth end for a day.

Not much is known about this monster. We do know that his victims seem drawn towards his chirps and chortles. Between pointy teeth, claws, and stubby mauling fingers, most of the time dental records are needed to confirm identities.

It would be amazing to watch this beast in action. A deformed cross between yak and gargoyle. Look as he crashes his way across the country letting nothing stand in his way as if by manifest destiny like an awful shaggy demon.

The sea monster inhales whole ships with one motion only to smash them in his baleen encrusted lips. Right now his enormous form is lying dormant on the ocean floor. Each and every boat tiptoeing across the waves hoping not to be the one to spoil the beast's hibernation.

This split-tongued little impish fellow hangs around the dark forgotten and unused corners of your home. He chooses quick moments to peak out, attack small pets and cross wires. When not indoors he loves to spend time in your garden squishing mud between his toesies and eating slugs.

May men will tell you that the water buffalo is the most dangerous animal in the jungle. I'm here to tell you that no animal is more dangerous than the rare (and hardly seen) foo water buffalo. Nature colors animals with bright colors as a warning to gawkers and encroachers.
