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.

Ways To Make Sex Last Longer

How To Last Longer In Bed
There are some things in life that, inevitably, don’t last a long time. But sex… should not be one of those things. Sure, there’s a time and place for a quickie, but for the most part, sex should be an experience that is enjoyed for as long as you and your partner want, preferably with no time limit.

It’s not exactly news that it takes men less time than women to reach orgasm. And once it happens, sex is often over. After ejaculation, men go through a refractory period where they are unable to achieve another erection for a certain length of time (women have little to no refractory period). It’s normal and it varies, but it does have a way of interrupting intercourse. The only way to defer it is to delay orgasm, which is why we’ve put together a list of tips for lasting longer in bed.

10 Tips To Satisfy Your Man In Bed

Insanely Tips To Please Your Man In Bed
You probably want to know how to please your man in bed. But guys aren't always so verbal about what they need.
The bedroom is one of the great stages of male performance, so what you see on TV is typically far from what can (and should) be delivered in reality. That's why sex experts chimed in with more accurate insight about what guys really want you to know when the two of you climb into bed. Here are the top sex tips for women.
1. Do It With the Lights On
You may be worried about what your husband thinks of your post-breast-feeding boobs, your C-section scar, or that at some point, he'll stop being attracted to you because you look a little — OK, a lot—different than you did on your wedding day. But men rarely notice your self-perceived flaws — they only become aware of them if you're preoccupied with them or go out of your way to cover up. "It's true, men are very visual," says relationship expertBernardo Mendez. &…

10 Things You Didn't Know About Donald Trump

10 Things You Didn't know About Donald Trump

Whether you love him or despise him, you just can’t ignore Donald Trump. “The Donald” has been a controversial public figure long before his recent bid for the presidency. The real estate mogul isn’t after the presidential perks or salary, in fact it’s costing him dough to chase the oval office, so why is he doing it? Some say he’s running for a higher purpose, to restore our country to glory. Others claim he is a megalomaniac with nothing currently better to do than rile up America.
To fully understand Trump, it’s important to dig deeper than the sound bites and information offered by talking heads on TV. One minute he sounds almost presidential, other times he seems a misogynist bully. Not too many voters really know what he’s about so it’s important to analyze the man behind the public image with some lesser known facts about Donald J. Trump.

Things you didn't know about Donald Trump:
1. He went to military school
At the age of 13, Tr…
