Top Ten Weirdest Looking Animals

These creatures, although foreign looking to our eyes, obviously have a niche in natures grand design. I found so many water creatures that looked odd, I added a few land creatures in an attempt to give the list a little balance. Its a community list, so if you'd like, add any you have seen or can find online.
The Top Ten
1 Blobfish Blobfish The blobfish is a deep sea fish of the family Psychrolutidae. It inhabits the deep waters off the coasts of mainland Australia and Tasmania, as well as the waters of New Zealand.

Blobfish are beautiful creatures! I am absolutely disgusted that you think they are gross! They only look like that at a certain air pressure level, because it PAINFULLY DISFIGURES THEM. SERIOUSLY, I hope you have a change of heart, or else you're just a bad person.

They only look like a blob when they're not in deep water. This is because they need a large surface area to put up with the underwater pressure which squeezes their bodies inwards. I heard that they look just like normal fish whilst their in their natural highly pressured habitats.

It's like a wet sac of that so-called "slime" my sister has with poked in eyeballs.

It only looks like that if you take it out of the water.

2 Sea Pig Sea Pig Scotoplanes, commonly known as the sea pig, is a genus of deep-sea holothurian echinoderm of the family Elpidiidae, order Elasipodida.

I read some stuff about this one, and initially was surprised to find it can fit in the palm of your hand. Further along, I read it is closely related to a sea cucumber, and it has no brain, like a jelly fish. It also looks quite a bit differant than this depiction moving along the deep sea/ocean floor. Interesting

I had no idea this existed. Now I wish I hadn't found out because whatever that thing is, it's gonna be in my nightmares.

Seriously, just look at one, and you know it's super weird looking.

It may be weirder than a blob fish.

3 Pacu Fish Pacu Fish

When this fish opens its mouth, it has teeth of similar quality and shape of humans, and is arranged in the same way!

Oh! So that's where my grandpa's removable denture went.

Woah, that is one weird looking fish.

Go home evolution, you're drunk.

4 Indian Purple Frog Indian Purple Frog

Umm... This looked kinda like a blob fish that fell victim of toxic radiation to me... Maybe it's an alien? I really don't know how this is called a frog...

It's so ugly. And it's weird, but mostly just very ugly. And it looks so slimy.

This looks like someone mixed a bloated, slimy toad with a mole.

Looks like the stomach of a morbidly obese pig.

5 Glaucus Atlanticus Glaucus Atlanticus Glaucus atlanticus is a species of small, blue sea slug, a pelagic aeolid nudibranch, a shell-less gastropod mollusk in the family Glaucidae.

Also known as 'The Blue Dragon', it keeps afloat by using a gas filled sac on its stomach. It looks really weird and cool at the same time.

This beautiful animal which looks like a mythical dragon is actually a type of sea slug, believe it or not.

So beautiful! It looks like a creature that came out of a fantasy book.

Looks like a cool water Pokemon.

6 Dumbo Octopus Dumbo Octopus Dumbo Octopus (Grimpoteuthis) is a small deep sea animal that dwells on the ocean floor at the depths of 9,800 to 13,000 feet. They are the deepest living octopuses known. It was named from a 1941 Disney film Dumbo.

I swear I thought this was a cartoon creature the moment I saw this

7 Thorny Dragon Thorny Dragon The thorny dragon or thorny devil is an Australian Lizard, also known as the mountain devil, the thorny lizard, or the moloch.

This lizard has a 'false head' which he shows to predators by dipping his head down.

8 Venezuelan Poodle Moth Venezuelan Poodle Moth The Venezuelan poodle moth is a possible new species of moth discovered in 2009 by Dr. Arthur Anker of Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, in the Gran Sabana region of Venezuela.

It really does kind of look like a dog, with huge, hairy wings and body.

It kinda looks like a cute pokemon, but the wings and everything is so damn THICC.

Don't feed it after midnight.

It's cute, but it's really weird.

9 Goblin Shark Goblin Shark

This is the messed up result of merging a swordfish, anglerfish, and a tiger shark.

Deep sea fish are the stuff of nightmares.

10 Axolotl Axolotl The axolotl, Ambystoma mexicanum, also known as the Mexican walking fish, is a neotenic salamander related to the tiger salamander. Although the axolotl is colloquially known as a "walking fish", it is not a fish, but an amphibian. The axolotl is only native to Lake Xochimilco and Lake Chalco in Mexico. more.

There is already a Pokemon version of it.

Looks like a Pokemon or something.

It looks cool

The Contenders
11 Naked Mole Rat Naked Mole Rat The naked mole-rat, also known as the sand puppy, is a burrowing rodent native to parts of East Africa. It is closely related to the blesmols and is the only species in the genus Heterocephalus of the family Heterocephalidae.

They hardly even go up to surface, but they instead stay in the warm soil... This might explain why they have no fur.

I dislike naked mole rats because they're so ugly and gross.

12 Viperfish Viperfish A viperfish is any species of marine fish in the genus Chauliodus. Viperfish are characterized by long, needle-like teeth and hinged lower jaws. A typical viperfish grows to lengths of 30 to 60 cm.

It's a deep sea creature, of course it's ugly.

Looks like those eels from Mario.

Another animal with a Squidward nose? Oh no...

16 Blue Parrotfish Blue Parrotfish The blue parrotfish is a member of the parrotfish genus Scarus. It is found on coral reefs in shallow water in the tropical and subtropical parts of the western Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea.

I don't think that it looks weird. It's just that the colour is unique because it seems to run from light to dark blue. Looks so pretty.

It is a complete, neon blue color.

It looks like a zombie!

17 Star Nosed Mole Star Nosed Mole The star-nosed mole is a small mole found in wet low areas in the northern parts of North America. It is the only member of the tribe Condylurini and the genus Condylura.
18 Mantis Shrimp Mantis Shrimp The mantis shrimp, or stomatopod, is a type of marine crustacean of the order Stomatopoda. Most species can grow to around 10 centimetres in length, though a few species reach up to 38 cm.

Did you know that the mantis shrimp has 16 color cones? Humans only have 3, and dogs have 2.

This multi-coloured guy has long stalks that end in eyes.

Has the strongest punch of any animal even stronger than The Rock

19 Purple Frog Purple Frog

Great additions. Man, I never seen some of these creatures on any wildlife show. Weird.

20 Human Human Humans are not exactly wild animals, but they are not domesticated either. Humans are proven to be the most intelligent species of animals on Earth. Humans' colours vary from almost pepper black to milky white.

We act very weird compared to other animals, but then again it's ok since no one really cares.

Humans are the only animals on Earth that destroy their environment.

Humans look so weird

Eh, I've seen weirder.

21 Proboscis Monkey Proboscis Monkey The proboscis monkey or long-nosed monkey, known as the bekantan in Indonesia, is a reddish-brown arboreal Old World monkey with an unusually large nose. It is endemic to the southeast Asian island of Borneo.
