Spirit Sentiment #2 - Strange Animals

Hey Jams!
How are you liking the new otters so far? They're cuties, aren't they?
The world is full of animals that we've never even heard of (especially in the ocean).
This sentiment is dedicated to some strangely unique animals that some of you may have never heard of!
They're definitely strange, and some of them might just send a chill up your spine!



Click the jump to see these odd animals!
Aye Aye

Do not look me in the eye and tell me that THIS ISN'T A DEMON.


The Aye Aye is an endangered lemur. Some cultures think of this animal as a bad spirit, so they kill them on sight. I'm not surprised that they think of it as a bad spirit!

Blob Fish

You've guessed it! It's just a big....blob.

Bush Viper

One of my favorites and one of Earth's closest animals to a dragon.
This beauty is venomous and technically known as Atheris. They sometimes eat other snakes!

Some of them are horned!
Fossa
(Pronounced like foosuh)

These cuties are basically just overgrown ferrets.
Japanese Spider Crab

I DO NOT LIKE THIS ONE

Japanese Spider Crabs can reach 12 feet in length from claw to claw and can weigh up to 42 pounds! Despite looking scary, they are actually gentle creatures, which will not change my feelings towards them.

Maned Wolf

I want to pet one.
Maned wolves are locally known as "large foxes" in Africa, and look like a deer and a fox mixed.

Pacu Fish



Well um...this super odd fish closely resembles a human skull. Let's not talk about it anymore.

Shoebill Stork

If you are a Zelda nerd like me, you will instantly realize that these creatures are Loftwings.
Shoebills are absolutely stunning birds that are generally quiet and tend to not move around much. They are known as whalehead or b-rex in their taxonomy.


Tapir
credit for this one to kitkat833!
Tapirs have a pig-shaped body and long snouts. They inhabit south and central America, and are related to other odd-toed ungulates like horses and rhinoceroses.

Tufted Deer
I call them vampire deer.
Tufted deer are a small species of deer. You can easily differentiate them from normal deer by their prominent tufts of blackish fur on their heads. Males have those fang-like canines that stick out of their mouths.

Here are a few awesome extra animal gifs!

Humpback Whale
Hedgehog

Tiger

Bunny

SNAKE

Penguins chasing a butterfly

Ocelot

Spanish Dancer

These are just a few odd and playful creatures that you aren't very likely to encounter unless you live in Africa or Asia, or visit a zoo (or happen to have them as a pet). I find all animals (especially these) super fascinating!

Do you know of any strange animals that weren't shown?


*All animal facts come from wikipedia, and animals (except the tapir) were found on boredpanda.com*
