Tardigrades

Tardigrades are a class of microscopic animals with eight limbs and strange, alien-like behavior. They are remarkably abundant. Hundreds of species "are found across the seven continents; everywhere from the highest mountain to the lowest sea. Many species of tardigrades live in water, but on land, you find them almost everywhere there's moss or lichen..

Blobs

The “blob” is a yellowish, unicellular, small living being which looks like a fungus but acts like an animal. The slime mold, Physarum polycephalum, also has almost 720 sexes, can move without legs and heals itself in two minutes if cut in half.

The blob was named after a 1958 science-fiction horror B-movie, starring a young Steve McQueen, in which an alien life form – the Blob – consumes everything in its path in a small Pennsylvania town.

Star nosed mole

Star nosed moles are one of the most distinctive types of mammal. Their noses are hairless and ringed by a unique 'star' of 22 pink, fleshy tentacles. The star has 11 appendages per side that vary in length from 1 to 4 mm.
Like other moles it has a big cylindrical body with heavily-built forelimbs, broad feet and large claws. The pelage is dark brown to black on the back and lighter brown underneath.

Superb bird of paradise

The Vogelkop superb bird-of-paradise (Lophorina niedda), sometimes noted as the curl-caped bird-of-paradise, is a species of the Paradisaeidae (bird-of-paradise) family. It is endemic to the Bird's Head Peninsula in New Guinea (Vogelkop in Dutch). First described in 1930 by Ernst Mayr, it had been treated as a subspecies of the superb bird-of-paradise but was elevated to the status of a full species in 2018 based on its striking black plumage that its feathers absorb 99.95 percent of light and behavioral differences especially visible in the courting male.

Gobi Jerboa

The diminutive jerboa looks as though it were made from left-over spare parts of other animals, but it is nevertheless superbly adapted to harsh environments such as those of the Gobi and Sahara deserts. It holds membership in the Dipodinae, or "jumping rodents," family, which includes several different genera. The jerboa belongs to one of three genera that include more than two dozen species, more than 20 of them in Asia.

The naked mole-rat (Heterocephalus glaber), also known as the sand puppy, is a burrowing rodent native to parts of East Africa.
The naked mole-rat lacks pain sensitivity in its skin, and has very low metabolic and respiratory rates. The naked mole-rat is also remarkable for its longevity and its resistance to cancer and oxygen deprivation.

Aye aye

The aye-aye (Daubentonia madagascariensis) is a long-fingered lemur, a primate native to Madagascar with rodent-like teeth that perpetually grow and a special thin middle finger.
It is the world's largest nocturnal primate. It is characterized by its unusual method of finding food: it taps on trees to find grubs, then gnaws holes in the wood using its forward-slanting incisors to create a small hole into which it inserts its narrow middle finger to pull the grubs out. This foraging method is called percussive foraging.

Pink fairy armadillo

Also known as the Pichiciego, the pink fairy armadillo is the smallest known species of armadillo. It lives in the sandy plains and dry grasslands of central Argentina and other parts of South America. Unique adaptations like an aerodynamic body shape, smooth dorsal shell, and sharp claws mean this creature is able to completely bury itself in sand in a matter of seconds and then nagivate underground with ease. Similar to a mole, the pink fairy armadillo will spend the vast majority of its life underground. It is also nocturnal, only emerging ocassionally at night to find food.
