Blobfish

Blobfish

Voted the world's ugliest marine animal, the Blobfish is one of the most difficult to locate because of the depth of its habitat, 1,969-5,577 ft. (600-1700 m.) deep, it has been rarely photographed.
Leafy Seadragon

Leafy Seadragon

A fish that lives on the south and west coasts of Australia, which, like its relative, the seahorse, is named due to its resemblance to another animal (mythical in this case). The shape, somewhere between a dragon and some sort of plant, and the capability of being able to change its colour (in some cases) makes it able to swim around unnoticed by predators and prey.
Yeti Crab

Yeti Crab

Discovered off the coast of Easter Island, at a depth of 7,310 ft. (2,228 m.), it is the first member of a new family, the Kiwaida. Its species scientific name is Kiwa hirsuta. Is is a pretty big crab, 5.9 in. (15 cm.) long, and has received its name primarily because of its silky white setae (resembling fur).
Dumbo Octopus

Dumbo Octopus

Belonging to the Cephalopod class, its nickname is related to the resemblance of the ear-like fins protruding from their heads to Walt Disney's Dumbo ears. They live at extreme depths of 5,250-7,218 ft. (1600-2200 m. depth), and its habits are pretty much unknown.
Sun Bear

Sun Bear

It is the smallest of the bears, with a length of 47-59 in. (120-150 cm.) , and it is found in the tropical rainforests of west-central Burma, Indochina, Malacca, Sumatra and Borneo. It has a great fondness for coconuts and honey and thanks to the mild climate of its ecosystem, it does not need to hibernate.
Axolotl

Axolotl

From Mexico, it belongs to the class of the amphibians and can be found in many lakes mainly those of Xochimilco, underlying Mexico City. Today this species in great danger of extinction, mainly due to use in Mexican traditional medicine and the inclusion of alien species in their ecosystem.
Gharial

Gharial

It inhabits the wetlands of northern India and is a crocodilian of the family Gavialidae, with a very long and narrow snout that only allows it to catch fish, that makes a difference with other crocodiles. It is also in critical danger of extinction (there are about 200 individuals worldwide) mainly due to human depletion of fish resources, their main diet.
Sphynx Cat

Sphynx Cat

This breed of cats, is one of the most bizarre because of its apparent absence of hair, absence that is not entirely true, they have a thin layer of very short and even hair, which is almost imperceptible to the human eye or touch. It is one of the more dog-like breeds of cats.
Saiga

Saiga

Medium sized antelope mainly found on the steppes of central Asia, from southern Russia (Kazan) to the northwest of China. Their most important characteristics are their horns (of great value for Chinese medicine), and their extremely unusual, over-sized, flexible nose structure, which is believed to be an adaptation to the environment of arid continental climate.
Aye-Aye
