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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
