The Blue Dragon (Glaucus atlanticus) is a nudibranch (sea slug) that can reach up to about 2 inches; spend its entire life floating on the surface of temperate and tropical waters all over the world, feeding on cnidarians like caravels and Velellas, using the ingested toxins to become more threatening.

Rainbow Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus deglupta) is the only representative of the family of eucalyptus found naturally in the Northern Hemisphere; it has a trunk covered with a thin brown bark that comes off as the tree grows, revealing new multicolored barks, with green, yellow, purple, blue, orange and pink, among other colors, that turn brown when mature and slough off exposing new colors, which makes the trunk always have a new color.

The wolf spider is the only species of spider that carries its offspring this way - live, hatched and wriggling on her back!
After a gestation of 9 to 27 days (dependent on temperature) during which the eggs are carried around in a silk globe attached to the mothers stomach, the offspring hatch and climb on to her back. They stay there until they're ready to hunt alone.

Painted bat (Kerivoula picta), found in Asia; it measures up to approximately 20cm of wingspan and feeds on insects. The strong colors are meant to fool predators, because it makes the bats look dangerous, since they live in vulnerable places.
