On our planet, there are many animal species, each with its own physical characteristics that differentiate it from the others. Some need to camouflage themselves in the environment in which they live to survive predators or to hunt prey, others have exceptional eyesight at night, still others a keen sense of smell. The Earth is populated with so many animals that we don’t know them all. Let’s take a look at some pictures of animals that look a bit weird.
