Within the great animal kingdom lives a plethora of wild creatures who have adapted to living without eyes or have encountered defects which make them completely blind. Gaze into the eyeless faces of animals with total blindness and you'll see for yourself how creepy (and still totally cool) these beasts actually are. Pictures of animals with no eyes will fascinate and haunt you at the same time, as their images linger in the uncanny valley just as they linger in their natural habitats.

Animals without eyes can typically be found living in caves, dark waters, underground, and other environments where not much light can be found. Other critters are just hit with a stroke of misfortune when life causes the average, fully ocularly-equipped animal to be born without eyes. Photos of eyeless animals showcase what life looks like for these strange beasties who can't see a thing!
