Blobfish 

strange.jpg.fecda207f5e970b6170b4f8f9047820b.jpg

The Blobfish is a deep-sea fish which inhabits waters just above the sea bed at depths of 600 to 1,200 meters (2,000 to 3,900 feet), off the coasts of mainland Australia, New Zealand and Tasmania.

They have been described as the ugliest fish in the world, however, this popular impression is due to decompression damage to their jelly-like bodies, when out of their natural high pressure environment. Wikipedia

The last animal shown, Jerboa, would have been a fine addition to the Star Wars catalog of animals, even the name fits perfectly... Jerboa the Runt! 🤣

I had known about the Aye-aye and that was it. When I saw the other animals I needed three reputable sources before I posted them. Crazy stuff. I still have more.

Humming Bird Moth By Beatriz Moisset

Test.thumb.jpg.6b4af0caaee19b77a1d99666bda1de9a.jpg

Quite often inexperienced garden visitors notice what they think is a tiny hummingbird fleeting among flowers such as bee balm (Monarda). They listen incredulously when one explains to them that what they just saw was not a bird but a moth. Hummingbird moths are rather plump; the tip of their tail opens into a fan.

 Our Creator most definitely has a sense of humor. And the fox-wolf animal looks like a hybrid of some kind. I'm sure I'm wrong, never the less.

Shoebill Bird

It is a very impressive bird, that reaches a height of 1.2 meters approximately, they are sedentary and solitary, rarely they usually walk accompanied by another bird of their species, for this reason their reproduction is difficult.

This is what it looks like when it's in the water.

@Koltin what a difference. Just for the sake of knowledge, the animal is removed from their natural habitat and brought into our hostile environment.

That bird reminds me of scary clown for that angle the pic was taken. I have never seen it my entire life. 

The link that you have posted looks impressive. I have never imagined animals like this ever exist.

      Satanic leaf-tailed gecko

      Satanic leaf-tailed gecko is a species of gecko that is found on the island of Madagascar. Their tail is flattened and appears to look like a leaf, helping the animal blend in within the environment. This is the cutest entry.
      Frilled Shark

      This Frilled Shark was discovered back in 2007 by a Japanese fisherman.  Experts sometimes call this animal a “living fossil” because it belongs to a primitive species that has changed very little over millions of years. Maximum lenght 6ft.
      Deep Sea Hatchetfish

      Deep Sea Hatchetfish have extremely thin bodies which resemble the blade of a hatchet, but what I find more fascinating are those facial expressions!  Apparently, its eyes can focus close up or far away. Scale tone: metallic colour.
      The Viperfish. 

      Its fangs are so large that they can’t fit inside its mouth.  Instead, they curve back very close to the fish’s eyes.  The Viperfish is thought to use these sharp teeth to impale its victims by swimming at them at high speeds.
      Star-nosed mole 

      A a small mole found in wet low areas in the northern parts of North America, Star-nosed mole is easily identifiable by its snout which is used as a touch organ with more than 25,000-minute sensory receptors. Named Eimer's organs, the receptors are great at detecting seismic waves.

      Venezuelan Poodle Moth

      Discovered in Venezuela in 2009, this new species of alien-looking moth has poodle-like fur covering its head, thorax, abdomen, and even its wings.
      Glaucus Atlanticus

      Also known as the blue dragon, this creature is a species of blue sea slug. You could find it in warm waters of the oceans, as it floats on the surface because of a gas-filled sac in its stomach.
      Goblin Shark

      This rare shark is sometimes even called a “living fossil”, “is the only extant representative of the family Mitsukurinidae, a lineage some 125 million years old.” Goblin sharks inhabit the depths greater than 100 m (330 ft), with adults found deeper than juveniles. Given the depths at which it lives, the goblin shark poses no danger to humans.
      Panda Ant

      Despite looking like an ant and being referred as such, it is in fact a form of wingless wasp. This insect is also known as cow-killer. Females possess thicker fur but lack wings. The furry panda ant lives for about 2 years.
