“What is that ?!” The Strangest Animals on Earth!

Have you noticed how completely different certain species are from one another ?  Here are a few animals that are stranger then we realize . Surprisingly enough none of these include us humans.Be forewarned though that some of these animals are not pleasant to the eye, but remember, we are ALL God’s creatures. 

First up is the Goliath Bird Eating Spider 

 This is the biggest spider on earth ! Contrary to its name these plate-sized creatures would rather eat bats and bugs than chew on birds.This tarantula is pretty harmless to us humans and it is in danger due to the destruction of its Amazonian habitat. 

The Itsy Bitsy Spider...

Next up is The Giant Coconut Crab 

Yum Dinner !

 Unlike our spider friend Goliath, this giant crab is larger than your average dinner plate. Although these crabs can crack a coconut with ease, they are usually too slow to be of any harm to humans. These crabs usually live in Guam where children enjoy knocking them off trees. Harsh 

Glass Frog

This frog’s beauty is obviously not just skin deep. Aren’t his organs mesmerizing? unfortunately this creature is at risk of becoming extinct. 

The Giant Soft-shelled Turtle is one of the strangest animals on this planet and is very rare. These are not sea turtles but prefer to stay inland. It’s shell can expand to almost 6 ft !

Remember that fish in finding Nemo that had the glowing  fishing rod thing that dory found so fascinating ? Well this is the male version. It attatches itself to the female and “feeds” until he loses his eyeballs, then his internal organs, and eventually his life. This fish is 1/20th the size of the female so you probably wouldn’t notice it at first glance. 

EeWWW!

It’s amazing how different and unique these animals are that share our planet. But all these animals have one goal in common, to survive.
