Monsters, ghosts and goblins will all be upon us when the witching hour starts come Halloween. But sometimes spooky, scary and gruesome beasts can be found more readily in nature.

BBC has put together a collection of some of the most spine-tingling flora and fauna for your enjoyment.

My thoughts? Humans are the scary ones, not nature…

A baby dolphin with its umbilical cord still attached was found beached near Montevideo city, Uruguay.

Luckily, a rescue organization got involved and and has been nursing the little guy back to health.

I would have captured a much older and wiser dolphin to hold captive. What valuable information could this baby dolphin know? Live long and prosper little one, for your great grandmother is in my bath tub hooked up to lie detector…

A kayaker added an element of danger to the normally serene pastime of whale watching by paddling directly out into a pod of massive blue whales off the coast of California.

Yes, it was risky, but Rick Coleman got close enough to touch the gigantic sea creatures, which can grow up to 100 feet long and weigh a staggering 150 tons.  Fortunately for us, Coleman documented the entire thing on video.

Check out the video after the jump…

You would think life as a penguin would be all sliding around on ice and swimming really fast, but no. As it turns out, their world is similar to ours and no one can be trusted.

For a male penguin to attract a female, they must build a nest out of pebbles. One penguin totally violates the bro code and instead of finding his own pebbles, pulls the robbery and sneaks them while his neighbor isn’t watching.

I’m not even surprised by this. After all, penguins have a long history of crime.

Watch this goose attack directed by the one and only Michael Bay. Man that was intense!

Triton, an 11 years old male lion loves to play football in his enclosure at Johannesburg Zoo, South Africa.

Soccer mad Triton likes soccer so much that he refuses to play with seven females he shares his enclosure with.

He was born at the zoo has become a tourist attraction. Watch this amazing animal video where Triton shows off his skills…

Members of a golf club in Australia have something more to worry about than just their swing – playing on what’s thought to be the world’s first shark-infested course. Water hazards are a challenge for anyone who plays golf, but on the 14th tee at the Carbrook Golf Club in Brisbane there is another reason to be concerned.

Half a dozen man-eating bullsharks live in the lake in the centre of the course where their fins poking through the water have become a regular sight. The sharks got onto the Queensland golf course when it flooded and the river broke its banks.

The sharks, which are between 8 and 10ft long, have proved quite a hit at corporate events and their fins have even been spotted during wedding ceremonies held on the course. Local children once jumped in the lake to retrieve lost golf balls for extra pocket money – but it is something they have not done for a while…

Frank and Louie the cat, was born with two faces, two mouths, three eyes, and lots of doubts about his future.

Twelve years after Marty Stevens rescued him from being put down because of his condition, the exotic blue-eyed rag doll cat is not only thriving but has made it into the 2012 Guinness Book of World Records.

He’s the longest surviving member of a group known as Janus cats, named for the Roman god of transitions, who has two faces.

Some lucky visitors to Yosemite National Park were treated to quite the show: Two ridiculously cute bear cubs wrestling with each other in the middle of the road.

Not all bear interactions are this enjoyable, and a number of people have recently been attacked by bears, raising questions over whether humans should be intruding on bear habitats.

The tiger and dog have been raised together since they were nine weeks old, they have become inseparable friends.

They play together all the time and neither one of them has ever been injured. Watch the classic footage after the jump!

Sharks and seals are top of their respective food chains but there is no contest when the fish stalks the mammal.

Great white sharks typically feed on fish, dolphins, porpoises and dead whales. They also love the taste of seal – but it’s a treat that is hard to come by.

Seals have brilliantly adapted to the water since their bear-like ancestors took to the seas more than 20 million years ago. This however is no match for a hungry great white as you will soon realize when watching the video after the jump!

If you’re feeling sorry for yourself, just remember, at least you’re not a frog.

In fact, one look at BBC Life’s breathtaking video of this little guy, and all your problems will likely seem much less grave. After all, when’s the last time you had to fend off a snake attack and nearly fall to your death?

That’s what we thought. Luckily, this little guy made it to safety. If anything, this video shows just how many epic moments happen in nature that usually go unwitnessed by humans. Little frog, it’s now time to conquer the world. You mad snake?

A law of nature, don’t mess with a Rhino. I wonder how it ended? Was the Warthog gored, did it get up and stroll away? Silly zoo, clearly these dudes don’t belong in the same environment.

If you don’t mind not getting a good night sleep for the next three months, and jumping fifteen meters every time a blade of grass touches your ankle, watch this video.

Although this jumping spider is relatively small, when filmed with a macro lens it becomes something out of a dream. The way I feel right now is that if a giant spider doesn’t come along and kill me soon, the anticipation will.

A scourge of mosquitoes get fat with blood while feasting on the all-you-can-eat arm of some soon to be itchy human. Pretty awesome that they were able to document the exact moment they contracted malaria.

Imagine yourself as a small mouse or rat as this Eagle Owl drops in for a bite. The owl coming at you at 1000 frames per second is incredible!

These next two epic sequences of a bald eagle catching a fish were recorded simultaneously with two high speed cameras with Full HD resolution.

God I love these creatures. That stupid little fish never saw the claws of hell swooping in until it was to late.

A Great White Shark attacks a diving cage just off Seal Island, Gaansbai in South Africa.

C’mon dudes, hold the camera still. It’s like you’ve never been attacked by a Great White Shark before.
