STAR-NOSED MOLE RAT






YETI CRAB




AYE-AYE






These poor little guys are on the endangered species list, but not just because of limited habitat, but because of native superstition. Many people native to Madagascar consider the aye-aye an omen of ill luck. For this reason they often have been killed on sight.


JERBOA






One of the niftiest little creatures I've come across. These guys are a cross between rabbit and kangaroo if you ask me.

Here are some cool videos of the Jerboa as a pet. They almost look cartoonish:

Red panda looks cool.

Mata mata turtle looks closely related to the salt water crocodile, just based on that 2nd pic. Head shares a lot of similarities.

That pic B-Low quoted is ****ing scary... That crab is huge.

I've seen Red Panadas in zoos, but the first time I heard that name I was thinking 'OMG, a red giant panda! That's so cool!' and it turned out they looked nothing alike and were tiny. I've seen giant isopods at big seafood restaurant places in HK, the scary thing is is that there's the bay, and a sidewalk, and all the restaurants are on the sidewalk, and they would just have those creatures crawling around on the sidewalk (they can't move very far anyway). It was terrifying the first time I saw those.



The ones I remember the most are the ones with huge shells to the left of the picture.

Have you ever seen Bizzare Foods with Anthony Zimmern on The Travel Channel? People will eat anything.


Looking at that picture though, I can't help but be reminded of how inhumane the conditions are at those markets. Most markets will have dead fish there, but other markets will have overly crowded tanks like the ones you see there.
