Some fish have a tendency to carry around a surprised look on their faces, which is always a hilarious sight to see. Almost none of them, however, look as surprised or are as convincing as the ocean sunfish. This massive sea-dweller weighs up to 5,000 pounds and can reach a size of up to 14 feet long and 10 feet high.
These fish love staying close to the surface and enjoying a good suntan, which is partly why they’re called sunfish. Smaller fish tend to gather around them and eat parasites off their skin, which is a great win-win situation for the ocean sunfish and its guests.
Mexican Mole Lizard
Meet the Mexican mole lizard. This long, bizarre, and legless lizard has small T-Rex arms and is one of the only four amphisbaenians in the world that actually has legs. It can be found in Baja California, right on the border of the state of California, and tends to be out in the open during midsummers. They might be a creepy sight to behold, but they aren't dangerous in any way.
The Mexican mole lizard mostly eats ants, termites, underground insects, and worms. Highly suited for the deserts, it likes to hunt during the day and sleep underground during the night. Like many lizards, one of its main escape tactics is to shed and later regrow its skin. Mexican mole lizards are fairly long and can reach up to 9.4 inches in length.
Aye-ayes are one of the weirdest looking primates on earth. These unique lemurs are mostly found at night in the Madagascar rainforest trees, as they search for food and shelter. Despite looking like chipmunks on Ritalin, they are actually quite intelligent and can use their human-like opposable thumbs to hang from tree branches.
Locals in Madagascar tend to stay away from the Aye-ayes because, for them, these mammals are like black cats. They are the world's largest nocturnal primate and are unfortunately considered endangered at the moment. This is due to unnecessary killing and environmental destruction, which forced the government to write laws protecting their lives and habitat.
We've already established that some of the weirdest crabs tend to hail from Japan, and the Heikegani is no exception. This crab is known for its shell, which tends to resemble a human face, often being compared to that of an angry samurai. This feature gave the Heikegani a nickname many centuries ago which still follows it to this day — the Samurai Ghost Crab.
Japanese culture puts these creatures on a pedestal, as it believes that they are the reincarnated Heike warriors, who were defeated in 1185 at the Battle of Dan-no-Ura, as told in The Tale of the Heike. Heikegani crabs are a popular example of how people tend to find meaning and resemblances to humans when they look at various shapes in nature.
The stargazer fish can be instantly recognized for having one of the most dissatisfied expressions ever seen on a living creature. This grumpy sea creature has often been cited as "The Meanest Thing In Creation", which is evidently clear when you stare at it for even one second.
The stargazer fish features incredibly large eyes on the top of its head and comically buries itself on the ocean floor until it finds prey to suck into its mouth. This creature is actually a very good hunter, and sports various tricks up its sleeve from two venomous spines and up to literally being able to electrically shock anyone who touches it, so do yourself a favor and admire from afar.
