It's difficult to grasp the amount of weird and wonderful animals that inhabit our small planet. Every year scientists are observing new species and discovering strange creatures, with some that look like props straight out of Star Wars.
And as strange as these creatures are, there's one, in particular, that has recently stolen the limelight and the photos are more terrifying than I thought they would be.
Keep scrolling to have a look for yourselves...
There are over 8 million species of animals on Earth, so it's no surprise that nobody has seen them all.Here's the kicker... If you wanted to look at all the animals roaming our planet, it would take around 8 years of non-stop scanning, and that's if you spent thirty seconds per photo, without eating or sleeping... That's just madness.
Let's face it, nobody's got time for that...That's why we've done the hard work for you, and found the weirdest of the bunch, so you don't have to spend a decade sifting through the lot.
You'll be amazed that these sometimes very unsightly beings inhabit the same planet as us!Keep scrolling to see the world's latest attraction... The human-sized bat.
