Scariest snake on the planet

The split-tailed horned viper has the head of a snake but its tail looks like a spider. This adaptation allows it to attract birds to munch on.

Nature sure is beautiful, but also as scary as fuck.

Sonic the Hedgehog is pretty slow in real life

I'm kind of surprised at myself for being drawn to this video of a real-life hedgehog lumbering cutely through a little handmade Green Hill Zone. But I guess I like hedgehogs.

I used to really like Sonic, too—he was the perfect avatar for the 16-bit 1990s, full of "attitude" and inherent absurdity, like all the cartoons I wasn't yet allowed to watch on MTV, or Ecto Cooler. But Sonic fans are incredibly intense. Even though I have been a "controversial video games feminist" for years now, I am not kidding when I say that the most I have ever been assailed for an opinion was when I wrote this Guardian piece on how fragmented and surreal Sonic now felt as a brand, and how unusual its fandom was. Re-reading it now, I can't imagine what's so offensive about any of the assertions.

Sonic fans are weird. Still, if I got a pet hedgehog, it might be hard not to name it Sonic (the one shown here belongs to the San Diego Zoo and is apparently called Elvis).
