These Mysterious Holes Don’t Just Look Scary, They Have Deadly Pasts to Back Them Up.

The Earth contains many mysteries on the surface. However, when you examine what lies beneath the surface, it is only then when these mysteries start to become increasingly frightening.

There’s a reason why underground caverns, wells and cracks look freaky. Aside from their eerie appearances, these caves and holes in the earth also have pasts that are way scarier than any movie you watched on Halloween. Take a look at these incredibly scary caves and their troubling origins.
