8. POISONOUS BIRDS
Native to the rainforests of New Zealand, the pitohui is the only known genus of poisonous bird in the entire world. The feathers and skin of at least three species of the bird contain a strong poison. Of those species, Hooded and the Variable Pitohuis are considered the deadliest.
7. CARNIVOROUS PARROTS
The cartoonish kea, native to New Zealand, is the only alpine species of parrot in the world, making it uncharacteristically capable of handling heavy winds, cold temperatures, and even snow. It possesses thick, insulating feathers and soars like a raptor as it flies. While the kea’s olive green hue may seem boring or drab at first glance, it becomes much more colorful in flight, displaying its bright red underwing feathers.
6. FRESHWATER SEALS
Meet the Baikal seal, a species of seal endemic to Lake Baikal in Siberia, Russia. The Baikal seal, known locally as the Nerpa, is related to the Caspian seal and the Arctic ringed seal. One major difference sets the Baikal seal apart from others, however: it’s the only true freshwater species of seal in the entire world.
5. FISHING CATS
Even if you’re a cat person, it’s probably very unlikely that you’ve ever had to bathe a cat because for the most part, they are famous for hating water. But there is always an exception to the rule and there is a species of cat that not only tolerates water, but prefers it! The appropriately-named Fishing Cat is native to Southeast Asia and lives in a number of watery environments, including wetlands, the edges of rivers and streams, and mangrove swamps.
4. PLANT-EATING VULTURES
It’s common knowledge that a vulture’s diet typically consists of scavenged animal carcasses, but there is one exception: the palm-nut vulture, which lives and breeds in the forests and savannas of sub-Saharan Africa and feeds primarily on the seeds, nuts, and fruits of various trees, including the akacia, date palm, and kosi palm.
3. HYBRID BIG CAT
LIGERS AND TIGONS AND LITIGONS, OH MY! – wait, what? I’ll explain. If you’ve seen the movie Napoleon Dynamite, or other random videos here on youtube, then you’ve at least heard of the liger – a hybrid between a lion and a tiger. But did you know that it’s a real thing? More specifically, a liger is the offspring of a male lion and a female tiger – parents of the same genus, but different species.
2. NOCTURNAL GULLS
Hailing from Ecuador, the Galapagos Islands, and Malpelo Island, Colombia, the swallow-tailed gull is a little-known equatorial marine bird that also happens to be nocturnal. During the day, this bird rests and tends to its young – a responsibility shared between both parents.
1. MARINE IGUANAS
Described by Charles Darwin as “hideous-looking” and “most disgusting, clumsy lizards,” the marine iguana got a really bad rap. But is a very unique animal. Unlike most lizards, who stick to desert-like and tropical environments, the marine iguana is what it sounds like – a water animal that forages under the surf and hangs out along the waves, feasting mostly on the algae and seaweed of submerged rocks.
