It’s no surprise that no one knows or has seen all of the Earth’s more than 8 million species of living beings. And if you wanted to look at 8 million photos of all the cool species that walk the Earth, it would take you around eight years if you took 30 seconds for each shot and did it nonstop, without stopping for food or sleep. And, with scientists discovering new unusual animal species on a daily basis, this operation seemed implausible. That’s why we’ve selected the most intriguing and bizarre species from the group so you don’t have to spend a decade researching them.
This list includes land and sea animals, mammals and reptiles, and even bugs, so you’ll see a variety of animals. A moose-like creature that appears like a hybrid between a zebra and a giraffe? That is, without a doubt, an okapi! Is there a fish that takes the form of a blob? Of course, it’s called blobfish, which is an apt moniker. Thorny devil, a strange-looking creature? Yes, of course! After witnessing these strange creatures, you’ll be shocked that these sometimes obnoxious creatures live on the same planet as us!
