Gulper Eel






Narwhal






Hunstman (In this case, Hunstwoman) Spider

Here's a Link about them, so you can understand why a spider that looks sortof normal is strange to me:

Hah!  That Giant Turtle looks like a cow-chip! XD  And... that blob fish makes me think of Ziggy for some reason...
I can't think a real one off the top of my head, but I do immediately think of the mythical variation of one that I've always thought of as being extremely strange.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Yos**toshi_Rainy_Day_Tanuki.jpg Linked it cause it's mildly NSFW.
This is called a Tanuki, often inacurately translated as, or mistaken for raccoon, the more accurate translation is Raccoon-Dog, which is closer to a dog if I remember correctly.  Mario turns into this, not a flying raccoon as popular myth says.  That rathar large "object" it's beating those guys up with is magical and allows it to transform like a Kitsune.  Unlike kitsune though, they are considered to be benevolent, and good luck.  If you go around in Japan, you'll see little statues of these things occasionally, especially in front of shops, as the luck they bring is associated with money (this has to do with that large part).

EDIT: UGH, the profanity filter messed up the URL, because it had the letters s**t in it.  If you want to see, you;ll have to fix it by changing the ** to HI.

Kreepy, pigs are the best, mine just turned 3 in December. I know it's odd but I think Chihuahuas are weird. Carpet sharks (Wobbegongs) are strange.

I am really really trying not to be negative. I am trying to respect all other creatures............ But where exactly is the head on the Matamata Turtle?  What is that thing sticking out of the front/back  of the turtle. Too many fish cocktails?

I'm pretty sure that the "thing sticking out of the front" is its head...even if it does look quite strange...

You know what? ...it kinda reminds me of a snail... when you touch the snail it retracts its head a bit and just looks well, odd... especially the really huge ones...


Instead of posting again... I just found this thing:



It's called a Geoduck O_o

I was thinking snail too until my co-worker thought I was looking at porn.  :-P

Makes sense that they would have to be that big if you read the article.

Im pretty sure only the males have spurs so you could have a female. The toxin isn't deadly but can do serious damage to the tissue.

These are Chinchilla's, and in my mind they look like fat, fluffy squirals.

I have two, both males and the two in the pictures look like them. The grey one looks like Heelie and the mostly black one looks like Nanook.

I don't have a picture but you want to see something odd, look up a Goblin shark.
There is another world inside of me that you may never see and part of me is fighting this....yet part of me is gone.
