25 Rare Animals That Seem to Come From Another World

25 Rare Animals That Seem to Come From Another World –

Animal species extinction is an evident and disastrous problem the world is facing nowadays due to human activity. Scientists say that about a dozen species become extinct every day. This means that some of the animals that make this planet so bright and beautiful will soon disappear for good. Photography can by no means save them, but it can make us aware of what bizarre and extraterrestrial creatures we’re losing. It’s hard to believe they haven’t come here from far-away places when you look at them!

2. The rare Blue Owl whose feather color is as mesmerizing as the color of its eyes.


3. The rare Albino Sulcata Turtle looks so diabolical, you’d be scared regardless of its small size.

4. The White Cuscus (don’t confuse it with the food couscous) is a marsupial, meaning that it has a pouch.

5. The Glass Butterfly proves that beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

6. The Pacific Spine Lumpsucker has a special cup on his belly to attach to surfaces.

7. The Kakapo — a large, flightless, nocturnal, ground-dwelling parrot of New Zealand.

8. The rare Albino Whale — a mass of beauty, power, and grace at the same time.

9. Marine Iguana — the only aquatic iguana in the world!

10. The Sailfin Dragon, whose main problem now is extreme habitat loss.


11. A weird deep sea fish, Lamprey, has a face only a mother could love.

12. The Greater Sage Grouse does look greater than other birds.

13. The Troll-haired Bug has a hairdo all punks would envy so much.

14. The Strobing Cuttlefish is so cute and pretty you actually want to cuttle, oops, cuddle it!

15. The Hammerhead Bat is so unique, we do believe it came from another planet.

The Mary River turtle (Elusor macrurus) is an endangered short-necked turtle that is endemic to the Mary River in south-east Queensland, Australia as one of Australia's largest turtles – specimens in excess of 50 cm in carapace length have been recorded. Overall colour can vary from rusty red to brown and almost black. The plastron varies from cream to pale pink. They use bimodal respiration, and so are capable of absorbing oxygen via the cloaca whilst underwater. A unique feature of the male Mary River turtle is the tail, which can measure almost two-thirds of the carapace length. The turtle is occasionally informally referred to as the green haired turtle due to the fact that many specimens are covered with growing strands of algae which resemble hair. The species is apparently omnivorous, taking plant matter such as algae as well as bivalves and other small animal prey. 📷 Chris van Wyk via @reptile_agency❤ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Did you find these facts, pictures or spieces interesting?
