You’re not going to believe what kind of bizarre abnormal creatures are out in the wild! While nature does a good job keeping order, occasionally things go awry. From radioactive mutants to rare hybrids, creatures find a way to mutate. Sometimes they grow an extra leg, have a second head, or do things contrary to their survival. And, if humanity continues to disrupt habitats, overpopulate, pollute, and poison the earth, their abnormality might just become normal. Here are 25 Bizarrely Abnormal Creatures Found In The Wild.
The California Sheephead is a rare and endangered species with abnormal and unique qualities. The strangest part about it is its chin and human-like teeth. They use the teeth to crush their prey.
Grolar bears, also called a Pizzly depending on which was the father or mother, are a polar bear and grizzly bear hybrid found in the wild. They’re incredibly rare and scientists are concerned it could be a bad sign for polar bear survival.
Long-Horned Orb Weaver
This incredibly bizarre creature is the Long-Horned Orb Weaver. Its long horns don’t seem to serve much of a purpose besides scaring off predators. The horn lengths vary, but some can grow to be 45mm in length.
In 2012, scientists believe they discovered the first ever hybrid shark. A mix between an Australian blacktip shark and a common blacktip shark, the hybrid shark could be a potential sign of adaptation to climate change. The Australian blacktip likes to swim in warmer waters, while the common blacktip swims 1,000 miles (1,609 km) to the south in colder water. The hybrid apparently can swim in both.
Recently, fishermen discovered the first ever recorded two-headed porpoise. It was a newborn male found in the North Sea. Fearing it would be illegal to keep, the Dutch fisherman threw it back. Scientists believe it was a conjoined twin, a rarity in sea mammals.
