Somehow, people believe that we have explored the earth down to the bone. But in fact, there is a lot yet to be revealed. And with every new discovery, humanity realizes how little we actually know about our environment. Take the fauna, for instance: there are animals that actually break the laws of Mother Nature, leaving us flabbergasted. Men of logic first refused to believe these could be real, but eventually had to admit that there are animals which seem to defy the rules of sensibility.
This cutie pie was first found in Australia, and there was no chance of bringing it to Europe alive, at first, due to the species’ weak heart and fear of their own shadows. But zoologists who worked on the green continent brought a dead platypus to the taxidermist and then sent it to their European colleagues by ship. The addressees were, so to say, shocked and first they thought that it was an evil joke. They even wrote an offensive letter claiming that was too cruel to combine a duck’s head and a beaver’s body as a jest. Later on, the conflict was solved, and now we are lucky to see these amazing animal many zoos today.

These guys have an extremely weird alien appearance. This venomous beast has one capability that shocks scientists: they can breath and eat simultaneously. No other shark is capable of that, and scientists have no idea why. Are they actually aliens?
