The Hagfish

Hagfish are marine vertebrates, with some debate as to whether they’re strictly fish.

Their unusual feeding habits and slime-producing capabilities have led to the hagfish being dubbed as the most ‘disgusting’ of all sea creatures.

The Proboscis Monkey — also known as Long-nosed Monkey — is a reddish-brown arboreal Old World monkey.

The Alpaca is a domesticated species of South American camelid derived from the wild alpacas.

The Dumbo Octopus

This octopus is sometimes nicknamed ‘Dumbo octopus’ due to the ear-like fins protruding from the top of its ‘head’ (actually body), resembling the ears of Walt Disney’s flying elephant Dumbo.

They live at extreme depths, and are some of the rarest of the Octopoda species.

The Komondor Dog

The Komondor is a livestock guardian dog breed originally from Hungary.

Its long, thick, strikingly corded white coat resembles dreadlocks or a mop.

The puppy coat is soft, fluffy and wavy, curling as the puppy matures.

A fully mature coat is formed naturally from the soft undercoat and the coarser outer coat combining to form tassels, or cords.

Maintenance is required in separating the cords so the dog doesn’t become a large matted muddle.

The length of the cords increases with time as the coat grows.

The Narwhal

The Narwhal is an Arctic aquatic mammal, one of two species of white whale.

The most conspicuous characteristic of male narwhal is their single extraordinarily long tusk, an incisor that projects from the left side of the upper jaw and forms a left-handed helix.

The tusk can extend up to 10 feet (3 meters) long.

The Blobfish

The Blobfish inhabits the deep waters off the coasts of Australia and Tasmania.

Due to the inaccessibility of its habitat, it’s rarely seen by humans. Blobfish are found at depths where the pressure is several dozens of times higher than at sea level.

To remain buoyant, the flesh of the Blobfish is primarily a gelatinous mass with a density slightly less than water; which allows the fish to float above the sea floor without expending energy on swimming.

The relative lack of muscle is not a disadvantage as it primarily swallows edible matter that floats by in front it.
