Strange Animals You Probably Didn’t Know Exist
Entertainment| | By Jason Owen
With over 7 billion people on Earth and counting, you’d think we’d have mapped out everything in its entirety rather thoroughly by now, but that’s far from the case. In fact, we’ve only explored about 5% of the total area of the ocean, which covers about 80% of the planet, and there are large areas of the Amazon and other dense forest regions that remain largely unexplored. So, it’s no wonder that many animals on the planet still go unnoticed, unclassified, or at least, only regionally known.
Such is the case with the animals you’ll find here today. Some are rare and on endangered species lists. Some were endangered, but conservation efforts have succeeded to bring them back to “Least Concern” status. Some reside in only remote areas of the planet, or are just extremely shy. How many of these strange animals do you recognize?
