If there's one thing we've learned from movies, it's not to mess with nature. From Jurassic Park to Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, it's clear Hollywood has been trying to teach us this lesson - but man will not listen.
Now, a band of genetic-manipulating redditors - armed with their photoshop brushes - have come together to create some truly bizarre animal hybrids. Some of them are creepy, some hilarious, but all are absolutely awesome!
Prepare yourself for the best of nature's cutting room floor:
