UrYou might think you’ve seen the world over, under, around and through, but there will still be wonders that will make your eyes pop.
Even if you are a dedicated animal enthusiast.
Below are 4 Weird Animals you didn't know do Exist in this world.
1. The Panda Ant
The Mutillidae are a family of more than 3,000 species of wasps (despite the names) whose wingless females resemble large, hairy ants. Found in Chile, they are known for their extremely painful stings, hence the common name cow killer or cow ant. Black and white specimens are sometimes known as panda ants due to their hair coloration resembling that of the Chinese giant panda.
2. 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.
3. 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.
4. 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.
Would you like any of these weird looking animals to become common pets, and share the same roof with you?
