This may look like just a normal lizard, but its not. Its a tuatara. They live in New Zealand, and they're a closer relative to dinosaurs than other lizards. The weirdest part though? The have a third eye on the top of their head. Scientists don't yet know what it does.
This is a flamboyant cuttlefish (what a name!). It's most unique feature is the way it moves. Most cuttlefish swim by undulating the fins on the sides of their bodies, but these guys do something way different. They walk across the sea floor on specially modified side fins shaped like legs. They're actually too heavy to swim for very long at all. Also, scientists have recently discovered that their flesh is fatally toxic.
Meet Camponotus saundersi. It's a fairly normal carpenter ant from Malaysia with a very interesting weapon. Some of the worker ants develop poison glands as long as their whole bodies. When the nest gets attacked by other insects, the ants contract muscles around the glands and explode into a corrosive glue-like substance, trapping the attackers like flies in flypaper. No word yet on whether the ants yell "Allahu Akbar" before expoding.
And for today's daily dose of "Nope!" we have the tentacle snake. Even better than its unholy name is its incredible hunting method. It eats only fish, and it catches them by flicking its tail behind the fish, prompting the fish to instinctively speed forward -- into the snake's waiting, tentacled jaws. While it is venomous, its fangs aren't suited for biting humans.
And lastly, a caterpillar that looks like Donald Trump's hair.
Leave a thumb if you enjoyed! I might make more of these if this one is popular. Maybe a weird plant, or a weird prehistoric animal comp.
