For many folks, autumn is a time of falling leaves, cozy sweaters, and pumpkin-spiced beverages. For Chris Pratt, however, it’s all about the trolls.

This week the Guardians of the Galaxy star shared on Instagram his excitement about “#TrollTime,” also known as “the time of year when evil trolls roam the woods and scratch their greasy nails up and down the tree bark sharpening them for the purge.”

Posting a photo of a thoroughly scarred tree — what more evidence do you need? — Pratt explained that troll season is “a big deal in the Pacific Northwest.” He went on to encourage his followers to put down their phones, go outside, and seek out the mythical creatures.
