The Mexican walking fish, or the axolotl salamander

The Mexican walking fish is actually not a fish. It is A neotenic salamander. They are characterized by a lizard like appearance with skinny bodies and somewhat fat legs. They are in risk of disappearing forever, or becoming extinct.

The Venezuelan Poodle Moth

The poodle moth is a possible new species of moth that was discovered by Dr. Arthur Anker of Bishkek. It really does look like a fake. It is similar to the Diaphora mendica, the Muslin Moth, but most likely is in the lepidopteran genus Artace family.

Mantis Shrimp

Mantis shrimp are marine crustaceans that are not so large. They reach a common height of 10 centimeters, but can also reach up to 38 centimeters. The biggest one ever caught has a length of 46 centimeters in the ocean near Fort Pierce, Florida of USA.[
