That right there is high octane nightmare fuel!

Damn, I thought snapping turles were bad! I bet if they looked like that, them good ol’ boys who noodle for catfish would stop.

And to think I petted one of these when it was a baby! I think. Might have been a Green Sea Turtle.

Who knew they were related to Fizzgig?


#5

aah, the rarely seen baby sarlacc.
what a cutie!

I was thinking exactly the same thing. A gaping hole filled with spiky tentacle things is way more terrifying than just seeing a turtle beak.

That’s one of the many problems I have with Lucas and his goddamn Special Editions.

Those aren’t teeth, in the sense of bone/enamel, etc. They’re made of keratin, which is in hair and skin.


#9

Oh that makes everything alright then. Sleep tight kids it’s just ■■■■■, fleshy spines of solid hair.


#10

What? Nobody?


#11

'sup


#12

I’m assuming that there is probably some Japanese tentacle porn that veers into leatherback turtle fellatio…


#13

well, there is now.


#14

Also, keratin as in claws and horns and fingernails and scales and porcupine quills. OK, feathers too, but still…


#15

Dude… sweet.


#16

I didn’t wake up this morning expecting to learn that leatherbacks have porcupine quills running down their entire esophagus, but Friday always has its horrifying surprises.


#17

… it’s too dark to read?

Wait, wrong punchline?


#18

the narration sounds as if it was computer generated.

Oh man, I was just watching this with my kids the other night, and I knew this wasn’t right!!! Is the whole sock puppet in the middle cgi?
