And that is why today I am bringing you the list of these adorable animals for you. Take a look at the 12 unique animals below and let us know your most favorite.

Would you look at that! This is a majestic bird with a crown that brings out extra beauty to itself. The Amazonian Royal Flycatcher can be found in South America in the forests and woodlands. These birds build huge nests on tree branches near water to make them easy to hunt, and difficult for predators to reach.

2Bergamasco Shepherd

This is probably the hairiest dog ever, except their hair looks actually like dreadlocks. Mark Zuckerberg actually has the same dog breed as this one. A similar species is Komondor, a dog breed with the same dreadlocks or mop coat covering their bodies.

3Bush Viper

Vipers are no friendly reptiles, but this bush viper is too cool to handle. Of course, they are as dangerous as other vipers, but their appearance is so elegant. These bush vipers live in the trees of Africa’s tropical forests and they hunt at night.

4Dumbo Octopus

They are the newly discovered octopus species some years ago. This octopus is so adorable and shy. When they’re shy, which use their tentacles to cover themselves which is so cute!.


And here we have a gazelle with an extra long neck. Looks like they’re giraffe’s cousins by the look of their necks. Just like giraffes, gerenuks use their long neck to reach food in trees or bushes.

6Maned Wolf

Their legs are just unusually long it makes me feel like the black part was added after the creation. Their habitat is in South America, and you won’t see any maned wolf packs anywhere. Maned wolves are independent enough to hunt alone which is cool somehow.

Unicorn of the sea, yes? The object from their head is a tusk actually, not a horn. Narwhals are a unique whale species that travel in groups, and look absolutely out of the world.


They have a zebra’s butts! Okapi is a mammal whose habitat is in the Democratic Republic of Congo in Central Africa. The great part is they are no relative of zebras at all. To our surprise, these are the cousins of giraffes!

9Panda Ant

No, they’re not ants. They’re wasps, except they are wingless and hairy. These wasps have absolutely painful stings that can kill. Do you know their other nickname? Cow Killer!

10Thorny Devil Lizard

The fact that they have spikes covering their body, thorny devil lizard should be a dangerous animal. But they don’t usually attack people, that might be because we simply run away when we saw them. They are one strange-looking creature, honestly. These lizards live in Australia, and they can grow up to 8 inches.

11Venezuelan Poodle Moth

Have you ever seen such an adorable moth before? This is a moth species discovered in Venezuela back in 2009. They have those amazing eyes and little horns which are absolutely adorable. Their another nickname is Gypsy Moth which sounds even more fascinating.
