Seeing them we would all catalog them as animals or strange beings and this compilation aims to show you another panorama of your world.

A clear example of evolution, the pink fish with hands uses its fins to walk on the ocean floor. So far only four specimens of this elusive fish, barely 10 centimeters, have been found and all in the area near the island of Hobart, on the Australian island of Tasmania.

2.- The Sea Pig

The body of the "Scotoplanes globosa" or Sea Pig has 12 tubular legs that help it move along the ocean floor to look for food. It usually inhabits the plains of the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans.
The sea pig feeds by extracting organic particles from the marine mud, using the smell to locate its preferred sources of food, among which are the corpses of whales.

3.- The Okapi A zebra, hyena or giraffe?

The Okapi, is an animal that lives in the Democratic Republic of the Congo in Central Africa and despite having a resemblance to a zebra-hyena is actually related to giraffes.

Found recently, this species of catfish found in the Amazon feeds on fallen trees in the Santa Ana river of Peru.

The picozapato (Balaeniceps rex) is named after the shape of its beak and was classified in the 19th century. It lives in tropical and eastern Africa.

Recently found, this new species of monkey found in Myanmar has a nose so upturned that it makes the rain sneeze, as it has a nose "super upturned" (we could say that it has no nasal septum) and with thin skin and nothing of facial hair, does not stop sneezing. Even if you cover your face and cover it with your hands, even if you hide your face between your knees; In the end he always sneezes.

The only specimen scientifically analyzed was killed by local hunters, when scientists found it, to be later eaten.

Myleus pacu or the fish cut testicles, is native of South America and is preferred by the inhabitants of the Amazonian rivers for its flavor, although it is also known for the painfulness of its bites.

9.- The goblin shark

So far only two specimens have been observed and one captured, the goblin sharks resemble some prehistoric species. But due to its size and the peculiarity of his face is that more than one would confront him.
