16 Photos Of Animals That You Probably Did Not Know

The animal world is full of rare and “different” species, which you may not have had the chance to meet yet. In this list, you will get to know some of them:

1.Common Spotted Couscous.

It is a species of marsupial from Australia and New Guinea. We can say that it is a kind of “distant cousin” of the koalas.

2.An African albino tortoise.

This tortoise is native to North Africa, and the fact that this specimen is albino makes it even rarer.

3.Horned viper.

This is Cerastes cerastes, a typical African snake, which receives the name of horned viper due to the pair of horns that it can present in the region of the head. However, this characteristic is not unanimous among the individuals of this species.

4.Quilt.

The common eider is a species of anseriform bird in the Anatidae family widely distributed in arctic and subarctic coastal regions. It presents a pronounced sexual dimorphism characteristic of its gender.

5.Balaeniceps rex.

This bird is nicknamed the “clogging beak,” for very obvious reasons.

This animal is normally found in the tropical forests of northwestern Colombia, and is one of the smallest primates in the world, weighing just 500 g.

8.Elusor macrurus.

This species of turtle lives in the Mary River in Queensland, Australia. For this reason, it is nicknamed “Mary River Turtle”. Unfortunately, it is in serious danger of extinction.

9.Leaf-tailed gecko.

This gecko gets its name from its usually red eyes and the small horns on its head.
