Main Question or Discussion Point

What would you say are the weirdest animals on Earth (frightening would also do)?

It would be nice if you could provide pictures/descriptions!

I've seen some ugly, spooky, scary insects at a museum. I'll try to find some pictures...

The angler fish doesn't look very nice, indeed...

Octopuses are pretty damn weird. They can change their texture to be either smooth or lumpy, they can change their colour from dead white, to black, and almost everything in between. And then u know what the rest of them looks like...

My brother was once sent to the principals office because he wrote an essay about a tazmanian devil. His Biology teacher thought that they were only a cartoon character and not real! Fortunately for him, his principal knew they are an actual animal. They are pretty weird.

Blue tongue skinks are also very strange.

Some humans I know...

How about, humans (homo-sapiens) ? :wink:

Creatures with pink/dark-brown/yellowish pink/ or reddish pink skins,
little hair, relatively large, large (but not the largest) brains,
extremely adaptable in terms of food and living conditions, outside the standard type of food-chains, found all across the land surface of the planet aspecialy in high density areas which the creature has greatly altered compared to their natural appearence, etc. etc. etc.

Well, somebody was going to post this "joke" here sooner or
later, right ?

Well that makes the biology teacher really weird....how come he became a teacher?

How about a little turn of the topic? Which animal isn't weird?
