These little guys use their super sensitive nasal tentacles to navigate their
surroundings, that have over 20,000 feeling receptors! That’s a lot of information 15- The Green Anaconda is the largest snake in the world, growing to 29 feet
long and weighing up to 550 pounds. Freaked out yet? Their super duper skills
are being able to squeeze the life out of their food with muscular long bodies
AND- swallow large prey whole like wild pigs, deer, birds and turtles.
desert. Then imagine going four years without a drink of water. You can’t,
because you’d be dead. This rat can.
13- The Galapagos tortoise is kind of like your great granddad. He’s old, wrinkly,
and can weave a tale about the last hundred years that will make your head spin.
The Giant Galapagos tortoises are, well, giant, heavy reptiles that can live to be
170 years old.
12- Owls don’t miss a beat with the combination of great hearing, sight and the
ability to sneak up on prey. The jury is still out on how wise they really are, but
with these super abilities you’d think it would be true.
11- Megabats are a family of fruit eating bats that can host many diseases but do
not get sick. They are kind of like Bruce Willis in Unbreakable. They carry these
sicknesses and spread them around to other animals and eventually to HUMANS.
10 - Sometimes these crazy creatures can grow double tusks side by side. What
an efficient way to fish! Whether docile or not, Narwhals are one of the most
unique whales out there.
9- As if that wasn’t impressive enough, our mimic can even pose as a predator of
the fish that’s trying to eat him. Some regular copied looks are a sea snake, a
sole fish or jellyfish. What an intelligent invertebrate.
8- Female Goliaths also have a nasty habit of eating their male counterparts
after they are done mating. With one inch long poisonous fangs and barbed leg
hair that can be shed as an irritant, these spiders are equipped to scare.
7- The Harpy Eagle has both the super powers of strength and size in the world
of birds. Think of it as an enormous airborne assassin waiting to free fall from the
sky, snatching you up by the skull with its massive talons. You should be safe,
unless you live around the canopy of a tropical rain forest and look edible.
6- Pockets of air get trapped helping its feet stay atop the water. It can do a 4
meter dash at 1.5 meters per second before sinking into the water to swim and
escape from predators. Found in Central and South America, the basilisks are
great climbers and can stay submerged for more than 20 minutes at a time.
5- The Sperm Whale, largest of the toothed whales is an air breathing mammal
like you and me. But this behemoth can dive down to 3 km and stay there for 90
minutes. I get dizzy holding my breath for 10 seconds.
4- Electric eels may be the most cliched supervillains of the animal world but for
good reason. These fresh water fish can send up to 600 volts of electric shock
into the water around them, easily killing fish and other mammals including
3- This Hydrozoan, a bell shaped Jellyfish-like creature, has a secret to die for.
Er, well to live for would be more like it, because it doesn’t die. Instead, when
under stress its cells rearrange and convert themselves back into a youthful
2- When thinking of a strong species, a shrimp probably wouldn’t be first on
anyone’s list. But what if this crustacean can punch its prey at over 50 miles per
hour? The Peacock Mantis Shrimp is so strong, it can actually break aquarium
1- Talk about using your nose! These tremendous tunneling creatures are best
known for their strange star-like sniffers. Moles are all about their sense of touch and smell.http://incompetech.com/music/royalty-free/
