What would you get if you crossed a fox and an antelope? Probably something similar to the maned wolf. The largest canid of South America, the maned wolf has extremely long and thin legs that seem to be an adaptation to the tall grasslands of its native habitat.
Squid with human-like teeth
Scientifically known as Promachoteuthis Sulcus, this deep-sea squid is an extremely rare squid species known from just a single specimen found in southern Atlantic Ocean at a depth of about 2,000 m (6,500 ft). Equipped with eight legs, two tentacles and perfectly lined up human-like teeth, it is not a creature you want to encounter when snorkeling.
But the deep-sea squid is not the only animal that was given teeth similar to ours. A South American relative to piranha, the Pacu fish also boasts impressive squared teeth. Despite the similar body shape, the Pacu is much larger than piranha, reaching up to 1 m (3 ft) and 25 kg (55 pounds).
Talking about bizarre teeth, nothing compares to the goblin shark, a rare species of deep-sea shark, sometimes referred to as the living fossil. Characterized by distinctive profile with an elongated snout and exposed jaws containing nail-like teeth, this surreal creature has been around for about 125 million years.
If there was a cross of an elephant and a badger, it would have to look like an anteater. More closely related to sloths than they are to any other animals, anteaters are up to 1.8 m (6 ft) long mammals easily recognizable by their long snout and even longer tongue.
