This incredibly rare mammal is native to Central Africa, mainly residing in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Despite their zebra-like stripes, they are actually more closely related to giraffes.
The Okapi’s chocolate coat is a reddish-brown shade, much in contrast with the white horizontal stripes and rings on the legs and white ankles.
This colorful bird is widely spread within sub-Saharan Africa and the southern Arabian Peninsula, the lilac-breasted roller perches in high trees, and other lookout points where it can spot prey at ground level. They prefer more open areas, and for the most part, they stay away from treeless places.
Their bright feathers are conspicuous with deep lilac breast feathers.
Satanic Leaf-Tailed Gecko
The Satanic leaf-tailed gecko is a type of gecko that is found on the island of Madagascar. With such an unusual name, we're all wondering where they got it from. This little gecko got his name from the Belgian biologist George Boulenger back in 1888.
Their flattened tail appears to look like a leaf, helping the animal blend in within the environment.
The blobfish inhabits the deep waters off the coasts of Oceania, mostly mainland Australia, Tasmania, and New Zealand. It is primarily a gelatinous mass with a density slightly less than water, which allows it to float above the seafloor without using much energy on swimming.
They only appear so droopy once they are taken out of the sea when pressure changes drastically.
Golden Tortoise Beetle
This lovely little fellow is native to the Americas. This species of beetle ranges in color from reddish-brown with little black spots to gold, and sometimes even metallic, earning them the nickname "gold bug".
They tend to change color in different conditions, such as during times of disturbance, like when it is touched by a researcher.
