Only female angler fish have the lighted lures. Males are very tiny and attach the females where they are eventually absorbed by the female, so that she can reproduce! CREEPY!

vampire-finch

The Vampire Finch lives only on two islands in the Galapagos Islands. They feed mostly on the blood of other birds, where they tear little scratches on the birds and drink a little blood. They are endangered and really cute if you ask us!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

vampire-bat

These infamous flying mammals are also the only mammal that feeds exclusively on blood. These frightening animals are very good parents and have been known to be surrogates for orphaned babies.

 

tarantula

Rose tarantulas have stiff spiny hairs on their stomachs that they can throw when they are threatened. We’ll just wave from a distance.

raven

Ravens are the largest member of the corvid family. Ravens can mimic other species of birds and some have been taught human speech. If one lands on your porch and says hello, say hi back :)!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Black cats have been associated with witches and evil, but the black jaguar just has a color mutation called melanism- where their fur has more color than usual.

cave-salamander

The Texas Blind Salamander calls the inside of a cave its home. This habitat has led to this amphibian having no coloration and no eyes. These alien looking creatures are amazing!

These are just a few of the animals that people are afraid of, but there is no need to be frighten of the creatures that we share this amazing planet with! Even the ones with creepy reputations are amazing once you learn more about them!
