Our planet Earth is an incredible place and there are so many different living creatures around us. Some of them are so weird that it’s hard to believe mother nature created something like that. And some are so rare that your chances of seeing them are next to nothing.

At Dimplify, we love nature and believe that the world along with its unique living creatures is astounding. We’ve selected 50 examples of species most of us have never even heard of. Don’t miss the bonus at the end of the article since it may be the coolest part!

8. Star-nosed Mole

These animals are almost completely blind but that doesn’t affect them that much because they have 22 tentacles around their nose, which have 25,000 sensors, and that makes their sense of smell extremely sensitive. They can even smell underwater.

The blobfish doesn’t have bones, teeth or much muscle either. This is why they have a very slow lifestyle and spend their whole life crawling along the sea floor sucking small sea creatures like shellfish or crabs.

If you were to draw a dolphin, you would normally include their well-known beak. Well, not for this one! the Irrawaddy dolphin has a very unique look to it, and its round face is one of its main characteristics. Although they are not considered to be in danger of extinction, they are relatively rare and only live in a few areas of the world.

The hair which gives this crab its name is not just scary but also practical. They actually eat the tiny microbes that grow on it. They live near the very hot hydrothermal vents in Antarctica which make their life a constant adventure, as one wrong move could mean being boiled or frozen.
