10 Weird Animals You Never Knew Existed

Crazy Creatures You Never Knew Existed

You might think you’ve seen the world over, under, around and through, but there will still be wonders that will make your eyes pop.
Wildlife never ceases to astonish us with its diversity. You've probably never even heard of many of the creatures living on our planet, while their appearance will make your eyebrows go all the way up.
Would you like any of these weird looking animals to become common pets, and share the same roof with you?

1. Dhole

The Dhole is a species of canid native to South and Southeast Asia. The dhole is a highly social animal, living in large clans which occasionally split up into small packs to hunt.

It primarily preys on medium-sized ungulates, which it hunts by tiring them out in long chases, and kills by disemboweling them. Though fearful of humans, dhole packs are bold enough to attack large and dangerous animals such as wild boar, water buffalo, and even tigers.

2. Tarsier

These cute little primates live in Southeast Asia. Their size is just about 3 to 6 inches, and their huge yellow eyes and long fingers make you go "awww." It's a bit sad they can't be domesticated because they can only survive in the wild.

3. Aye-aye

These weird-looking primates only live in Madagascar, where they spend most of their lives in the rain forests’ trees. While you have a handy opposable thumb, aye-ayes have opposable big toes. They use them to hang from branches.

Aye-ayes are often considered bad luck, so between habitat destruction and superstitious killings, they’re now endangered. But aye-ayes are just trying to eat bugs and coconuts, not bring tragedy to your family. They’re now protected from hunting by law, so that’s good news.

4. Cherax pulcher

This species of crayfish is easily the most beautiful: the cherax's shell is rainbow-colored and looks like a picture from outer space. However, the unusual appearance is about all that makes this crayfish different from its relatives. Unfortunately, the population of these amazing creatures has dropped dramatically recently.

5. 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 around the world at 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.

6. Pink Fairy Armadillo

You may have seen a regular armadillo before, but you probably haven’t seen one like this. This species prefers to stay buried in dry dirt. When it rains, they come to the surface. They are the smallest type of armadillo and they have sharp claws that allow them to burrow into the dirt.

7. Penis Snake

This, uhm… peculiar eyeless animal is actually called Atretochoana eiselti. It is a large, presumably aquatic, caecilian amphibian with a broad, flat head and a fleshy dorsal fin on the body.

8. Stove pipe sponge

These sponges take the shape of tube formations that can look pretty awesome at the right angle. A single tube can grow up to 5 feet high and 3 inches thick, and it never stops growing until it dies after hundreds of years.

9. Tufted Deer

This deer might look a little scary with those long fangs, but it’s actually harmless. This species lives in China and is a close relative of the muntjac. The numbers are dwindling due to hunting and habitat loss.

10. Red-lipped Batfish

Found on the Galapagos Islands, this fish is actually a pretty bad swimmer, and uses its pectoral fins to walk on the bottom of the ocean.

5 Worst Countries for Dating

Just imagine going out to a bar, seeing someone beautiful looking your way, and discovering that psycho racist aunt you both described is in fact, one and the same after 30 minutes of talk and some vaguely intimate touching. "Or as one Icelander, Einar Magnusson, puts it, "Everyone's heard the tale of going to a family function and running into a girl you've been tied up with for a while". Yes you know, when someone has funny tales of kind-of-maybe-incest, it's a perfect dating scene.  But not to worry, there's an app for just that situation right now! Th
