Some people say that Armadillos are extremely adorable, while others think of them as rats with armor. Either way, the pink fairy armadillo is probably one of the cuter versions of the species, and only grows up to 5 inches long. This little guy likes to live underground and uses a little biological trick to keep itself warm.
The pink fairy armadillo pumps blood into its armor, which is one of the reasons why it looks strangely skin-colored. These little creatures can be found in the deserts of Argentina, but are usually quite hard to come by and even harder to catch, as they spend their days underground.
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.
The greater sage-grouse is a unique bird found in western North America. It got its name from having large, white, beard-like feathers and a general exotic appearance of wisdom. The bird uses its two large air sacs to attract females, by inflating them and making weird popping sounds.
The greater sage-grouse is the largest grouse in America and tends to stay in one area without doing too much traveling. There are about 1,700 adult greater sage-grouses left in the United States. This bird has lost much of its population in recent decades due to habitat loss and is currently under threatened or near-threatened status according to various organizations.
One of the most bizarre-looking species of bats that can be found in Central America is the wrinkle-faced bat. It mostly looks like a regular bat, except that it also has a very wrinkled face. These can be found in various Central American forests from Belize to Colombia, Costa Rica, and other locations.
Wrinkle-faced bats mostly eat fruits, although their full dietary range is currently unknown. They secrete a weird odor from their chin to attract their female mates, which is just another quirk that makes them so unique and bizarre at the same time.
