11. Giant Isopod
The giant isopod is not a gigantic bug even though it might look like one. It is a crustacean and lives in the deep sea, preferably in mud. They can only be found in the Pacific Ocean, normally off the coast of Japan and the South China Sea. The ones that are usually caught are about 14 inches long but one was found in 2010, that was 2.5 feet long. Scientists aren’t sure why they get so big!!
Have you ever been driving when you see something dead on the side of the road? Nine times out of ten you will see another animal hovering close by as well. The Vulture. They are scavengers and because of their creepy appearance and disgusting habit of eating carrion, they are no one’s favorite animal.
9. Sea pig
These little alien looking creatures of the sea are actually sea cucumbers. The sea pig is only about 2 to 6 inches long, but gets its name from being pink and chubby and it looks like its gobbling its way along the seafloor. They have tubular feet that help them to get around and may have a sensory function.
8. Goliath Birdeater
The Goliath birdeater is the largest tarantula in the world! This gigantic creepy crawly can weigh about as much as a puppy and be the size of a dinner plate. It was named when scientists came across one eating a hummingbird. However, their food source is mainly small invertebrates such as frogs, lizards, and earthworms.
Gharials are often mistaken for crocodiles. They are native to the northern part of India and are most well-known for their long, skinny snout, and males will develop a knob at the end. Males are much larger than females and can reach up to 21 feet long. They are also considered some of the heaviest reptiles on Earth, sometimes weighing up to 1,500 pounds. (But don’t worry, that’s still not more than a saltwater crocodile).
6. Manta Ray
Manta Rays are enormous sea creatures and a lot of people are intimidated by them. Mantas can grow from 5.5 meters ( 18 ft) to 7 meters (23 ft) wide. The Giant Manta Ray can have a wingspan of up to 8.8 meters (29 feet)!!
5. Thorny Devil
The thorny devil is a lizard native to Australia. It is also known as “the thorny dragon” or the “mountain devil”. You might not think it’s that scary but it is covered in thorns and its scientific name, Moloch horridus was named after an evil god in John Milton’s Paradise Lost who would cover himself with the blood of human sacrifice. I know, really intense, right?
4. Naked mole rat
The naked mole rat is another animal that has a name that is deceiving. They are not rats or moles and they aren’t completely naked if you want to get technical. They have some hair between their toes and sensory whiskers on their faces and tails. Native to eastern Africa, you have to admit these guys are weird.
3. Aye-aye Lemur
This little creature is found in Madagascar. It is an animal that natives believe you see right before a death and is a bad omen. I mean the poor thing does look a little demonic.
It has a long thin, alien-like middle finger and teeth that grow forever like a rodent. It uses its middle finger to tap on trees to find grubs and then pull them out.
2. Wrinkle-faced bat
Also known as centurio senex, the wrinkle-faced bat is found in the tropics of Central America. Their faces consist of multiple folds of skin that make them look like wrinkled old men, and really scary. These folds of skin hold scent glands and males have more, so probably for them, the more wrinkles the better to find a mate!
1. Basking sharks
Let’s face it, basking sharks look a little scary. Their gaping open mouths can be up to 1 meter wide and are quite intimidating.
Basking sharks are the second largest sharks in the ocean, (after the whale shark). They grow to be around 20 to 26 feet long, however, some have been found reaching up to 33 feet in length!!
