Star-nose-mole

10. Star-nose mole

The star-nosed mole (Condylura cristata) is a small mole found in wet low areas in the northern parts of North America. It is the only member of the tribe Condylurini and the genus Condylura. The star-nosed mole is easily identifiable by the twenty-two pink fleshy appendages ringing its snout which is used as a touch organ with more than 25,000-minute sensory receptors, known as Eimer's organs, with which this hamster-sized mole feels its way around.

Microhyla nepenthicola

9. Microhyla nepenthicola

Microhyla borneensis also known as the Matang narrow-mouthed frog, is a species of microhylid frog found in the Matang Range in Sarawak, Borneo. It was once the smallest known frog from the Old World (the current record holder is Paedophryne amauensis from New Guinea). Adult males of this species have a snout-vent length (SVL) of 10.6–12.8 mm (0.42–0.50 in). Tadpoles measure just 3 mm.

Harp sponge

8. Harp sponge

Chondrocladia lyra, also known as the lyre sponge or harp sponge, is a species of carnivorous deep-sea sponge first discovered off the Californian coast living at depths of 10,800–11,500 feet (3,300–3,500 m) by Welton L. Lee, Henry M Reiswig, William C. Austin, and Lonny Lundsten from the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI).

Ice fish

7. Ice fish

Icefish are believed to be piscivorous but can also feed on krill. Icefish are ambush predators; thus, they can survive long periods between feeding and often consume fish up to 50% of their own body length. Maximum body lengths of 25–50 cm have been recorded in these species.

Sea pig

6. Sea pig

Scotoplanes, commonly known as the sea pig, is a genus of deep-sea sea cucumbers of the family Elpidiidae, order Elasipodida. Scotoplanes live on deep ocean bottoms, specifically on the abyssal plain in the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Ocean, typically at depths of over 1200–5000 meters.

Dementor Wasp

5. Dementor Wasp

Ampulex dementor is a species of cockroach wasp native to Thailand, described in 2014 by Michael Ohl of the Museum für Naturkunde in Berlin, Germany. The species name was selected by visitors to the museum, in efforts to connect members of the public to issues of taxonomy and the description of biodiversity.

Sneezing monkeys

4. Sneezing monkeys

The Myanmar snub-nosed monkey (Rhinopithecus strykeri) is a critically threatened species of colobine monkey discovered in 2010 in northern Burma (Myanmar). It was formally described as a novel species of primate in 2011 based on its fur, beard and tail. The species is known in local dialects of Lisu people as mey nwoah and Law Waw people as myuk na tok te, both of which mean "monkey with an upturned face".

Portuguese Man-of-War

3. Portuguese Man-of-War

The Atlantic Portuguese man o' war (Physalia physalis), also known as the man-of-war, is a marine hydrozoan of the family Physaliidae found in the Atlantic, Indian and Pacific Oceans. Its long tentacles deliver a painful sting, which is venomous and powerful enough to kill fish or (rarely) humans. The name "man o' war" comes from the man-of-war, an 18th-century armed sailing ship, and the cnidarian's resemblance to the Portuguese version at full sail.

Japanese spider crab

2. Japanese spider crab

The Japanese spider (Macrocheira kaempferi) is a species of marine crab that lives in the waters around Japan. It has the largest leg span of any arthropod. It is the subject of fishery and is considered a delicacy. Two fossil species belonging to the same genus have been found, Macrocheira ginzanensis and Macrocheira yabei, both from the Miocene of Japan.

Glaucus Atlanticus

1. Glaucus Atlanticus

Glaucus atlanticus (common names include the sea swallow, blue glaucus, blue dragon and blue sea slug) is a species of small, blue sea slug, a pelagic aeolid nudibranch, a shell-less gastropod mollusk in the family Glaucidae. These sea slugs are pelagic: they float upside down by using the surface tension of the water to stay up, where they are carried along by the winds and ocean currents.
