Isn’t the animal kingdom amazing? We all evolved from nothingness into vastly different species (or were created in the Lord’s image if you’re not into science) and are still evolving to this day. Well, some people are evolving. Other people are skipping a generation, I guess.
And after all these millions of years, we still don’t know everything about the animal kingdom that there is to know. We keep discovering new species day after day. And while most of them are pretty dull, these ones sure aren’t!
Not quite a Tyrannosaurus, but it’s a stingray with polka dots. I guess that’s sort of cool.
Good news: it’s not a human centipede. Bad news: it’s 20 centimeters long and amphibious. And it’s venomous. So don’t swim, walk or breathe near it.
This is the perfect animal for people that are thoroughly fond of vowels. It’s a river dolphin, and it’s the first new river dolphin to be discovered in over a century.

There’s literally over ten thousand individual species of ants, but only two of them (so far) have references to the great house Targaryen in their name.
Yes, that’s a rat. But it’s an omnivore rat, which is pretty unique.
This particular animal (which is a type of sponge) is only found 4000 meters below the water surface. It’s pretty safe to assume you won’t run into it while diving.
Yes, “Gryffindor”-i. Because it looks like a sorting hat, kind of. It also looks like a spider – which it is – so I should be leaving. Bye.
