Top 5 Strangest Animals to See Before You Die

So there are a ton of weird animals out there, but these are just some of the ones I want to see, at some point, in real life.

1. Bald Uakari: A monkey with a red face? How cool is that! Native to Brazil and Peru, these monkeys are listed as "vulnerable" on the endangered species list.

2. Barreleye Fish: So, um, this fish has a transparent head. Nuff said.

3. Pink Fairy Armadillo: These are just adorable. Less than five inches long, nocturnal, and found mostly in Argentina.

4. Helmeted Hornbill: This bird averages, get this, about 3 1/2 feet in length, not including tail feathers. It eats mostly figs and is found in Sumatra and Borneo.

5. Tube-nosed Fruit Bat: Okay, I just think these are cute too. Endangered, and native to the Philippines.

What other animals would you add to this list?

  1. I don't know of any animals to add. And I've never seen these guys before. Interesting.

    Hugs and chocolate,

  2. It's not a "weird" animal, but a very special one - the California condor. Once down to 22 living animals, with careful breeding efforts, they are making a comeback. In May 2012 - 405, including 226 in the wild. Seeing them fly, in the wild, with their 9 foot wingspan, is truly an amazing sight, and one of the highlights of my personal travels.

  3. I want to see a Blue Footed Booby because...well...who wouldn't want to see a Blue Footed Booby?

  4. I like that fish that dangles a light out in front to attract other fish into its mouth. Gotta love a devious critter.


  5. Where did you come up with these oddities? Seen the monkey in a zoo, but none of the others. Can't think of any to add at the moment.
