1. This octopus that looks back on the monster he’s become and can’t. Even. Handle. It.


2. Hey, look at the adorable baby coconut crab. Sure hope it doesn't do something crazy, like mature into the world's largest and most terrifying invertibrate.

...but it's training.

Training for COMBAT.

7. Some horrible witch cursed this tadpole and exchanged her beautiful tail and gills for depressing arms, legs, and lungs.

8. This fennec fox cub had trouble making friends because he wasn't a great listener. The adult version, on the other hand, can HEAR WHAT YOU THINK. And he does not approve.

9. This baby bat used to look like a piece of chewed gum... but now he's full-grown, wide awake, and ready to get his blood-drink on.

10. And this chameleon, who could be hiding on your sunglasses right... NOW! (And you'd never know until it was too late.)

Of course, none of the above animals are likely to straight-up murder you. Which is why they don't live in Hemlock Grove.
