Grab a crucifix, and hold it tight because you’re about to unveil some of the most horrifying things ever discovered in the great outdoors.
The Midnight Terror Cave situated “deep in the Belizean countryside,” was discovered in 2006 and has a 60-foot drop; of which at the bottom rescuers saw a looter encircled by thousands of human bones. Belize is sprinkled with caves and temples where to their gods Mayans sacrificed other humans — ordinarily via heart removal and decapitation.
It’s said, that persons have heard “terrified screams” arising from this cave at night. You may question whether the screams came from the elegiac ghosts of whomever those remains belong to. Or, perhaps they’re the screams of cave visitors in response to whatever those distressed ghosts were doing to them.
There were approx 9,000 bones found, and archaeologists say many of them belonged to children who in the ninth century were sacrificed by the Mayans. Up to 200 miles away some derived from, leaving experts stumped as to why kids would have been escorted that far for that objective.
In 1980 in Georgia, a group of loggers cropped off the top of a chestnut oak and witnessed something unnerving in the hollow log section: the open-jawed scowl of a mummified dog!
Did the loggers unearth the sinister supper of a devil tree? Not quite. Regrettably, in 1960 the extremely unfortunate pup climbed through the bottom of the tree and got wedged in the narrow entrance 28 feet off the ground. Thing is – how come the dog didn’t decompose, though?
Kristina Kilgore, biological anthropologist, noted chestnut oaks generate tannin, which reduces moisture and is utilized to stop pelts from rotting. In addition, inside the tree an updraft likely created a “chimney effect,” blowing away the acrid scent of death and safekeeping corpse-eating critters from smelling it.
