Check out the 10 strangest animal of the year 2010, and check out their incredible images.
1. SANGESSUGA T-REX
This leech, called scientifically Tyrannobdella rex , was found in the Peruvian Amazon. They have seven inches long but very long teeth, which gave him the nickname “T-Rex.”
2. PURPLE OCTOPUS
It is unclear if that octopus is a new species, but scientists believe that he and another 10 species found in Canada are not yet cataloged.
3. BAT NOSE TUBE
This frugivorous bat, also known as “Yoda bat” on the Internet. He is just one of 200 new species discovered in Papua New Guinea this year.
4. SLUG NINJA
She shoots arrows of love to make others more willing to cross slugs with them!
5. MONKEY MYANMAR
They say that the nose of this monkey is so short that even the rain causes it to be sneezing all the time.
6. WOOD-EATING CATFISH
This fish was found in the Amazon rainforest. Some fish have the habit of scraping wood found in the rivers to eat small animals embedded in it, but really this catfish eats wood.
7. TOAD THE SIMPSONS
This frog was discovered in Colombia in September. He was temporarily named “Toad The Simpsons” for having a similarity to the famous character “Mr.Burns” while still not officially considered a new species.
8. LIZARD THAT CAN CLONE ITSELF
A popular food in Vietnam, this lizard can clone itself and the most amazing thing is that, apart from anyone knowing of his super powers, no one thought he was a kind not yet classified by science.
A squid? A worm? Maybe a completely different species! It is believed that it also represents a new family, dubbed the Polychaeta , a family of segmented worms.
10. FISH WITH HANDS
Instead of swimming in the ocean they walk by the sea floor using fins adapted!
