Bergamasco Shepherd


Italian Alps near Bergamo, where it was originally used as a herding dog.


Pacu Fish


Known as “the ball cutter” fish, these bizarre fish have a set of chompers closely resembling that of human teeth. Their diet mainly consists of tree nuts; however, this piranha relative has also developed a taste for human flesh. This is bad news for guys since they have been known to target male genitalia (hence the nickname).


Lowland Streaked Tenrec


Found only in Madagascar, the lowland streked tenrec is a small mammal covered in barbed quills, which he uses against potential predators. The quills also produce a faint chattering sound when vibrated and are used for communication. In fact, the tenrec is the only mammal that uses stridulation for generating sound (something usually insects and snakes do).


Japanese Giant Spider Crabs


The Japanese giant spider crab is aptly named with the largest leg span of any anthorpod, reaching up to 3.8 meters (12ft) and weighing up to 19 kilograms (42lbs).


Glass Octopus


Transparent, gelatinous, and almost colorless, the glass octopus (Vitrledonella richardi) is found worldwide in tropical and subtropical seas.
