, the world around is rather studied, but he is still capable to surprise. There are unusual animals in the wild nature about whom nobody knows. Even if the photo of such creation will accidentally catch sight, can seem that it is result of work of the designer who at a leisure thought up something unusual. Actually these beings live on our planet, but they are known little.

Blue Dragon

the Shark with unusual appearance

Structure of the Head of a Shark Brownie

These fishes already look enough threateningly — a huge number of sharp teeth, rapid movements and the big sizes. The meeting with such inhabitant of the ocean will frighten anyone. But the shark brownie (it is possible to meet also the name "goblin") is capable to shock with the look even on a photo. First it seems that at an animal two heads — one big, another — less — sticks out of a mouth.

Actually on the end of a muzzle is available for a shark the outgrowth reminding a beak. One more feature — very long jaws which fish randomly pushes far forward.

The representative of skapanorinkhovy sharks only for today has a pink color of skin during lifetime, after death it turns gray. Is found at a depth more than 200 m therefore it is almost impossible to meet a shark goblin by chance. Fishermen caught some copies — it is known of 45 cases. Nevertheless was succeeded to collect by the scientist some data:

Shark goblin

  • The shark reaches in length of 3.8 m, at the same time the largest individual weighed more than 200 kg.
  • The habitat — from Mexico to Japan, in warm waters. It is for the first time caught at the end of 19 century
  • Fins have the non-standard rounded-off form, sharks brownies have no third century, lateral Kiel on a tail.
  • Back teeth are intended for crush of sinks, lobbies — long and pointed.

"Goblin" eats those living beings who are found at a depth — fishes, Crustacea, mollusks.

biology of rare fish remains Today a riddle, it is unknown even how many individuals exist in the nature. The shark has no trade value though her jaws are very much appreciated among collectors.

Royal heron

Китоглав it is from Africa, the only representative of family of kitoglavy treats group of ciconiiformes. Feathery differs in the large sizes — the wingspan exceeds 2 m, weight from 4 to 7 kg. In height the heron reaches 1.2 m. Has a beak of very unusual form, it very large and in a form is similar to a boot. But he helps a bird to hunt for fish who makes a basis of its diet. Is also other features doing feathery to unique:

Royal Heron

  • At the majority of birds of an eye the heads are located on each side, at a kitoglav they are in a front part of a skull. Therefore it has volume sight that is uncharacteristic for birds.
  • A beak of a royal heron so heavy that it should put it on a breast to have a rest.
  • The bird is capable to be very long without the movement that does it by fine model for amateur photographers. In one of zoos the cage of a kitoglav even has a plate where it is told that the heron nevertheless sometimes moves.

Baby Birds of a Kitoglav

At kitoglav huge nests , their diameter reaches 2.5 m. Females lay 1−3 eggs, incubation continues about a month. Parents in common care for posterity. At small herons instead of plumage swelled, but on the end of a beak there is at once a similarity of a hook which will help feathery to catch fish subsequently. Kids are in a nest of 60 days, but become completely independent only in 4 months

Kitoglava — rare birds, their number does not exceed 15 thousand People destroy their native habitat, ruin nests. Though an area of dwelling big — from the boggy regions of Africa to South Sudan, the number of separate populations is extremely small.

Argentina shchitonosets

In a different way this small animal still is called the plashchenosny battleship. He meets in Argentina where is found among droughty meadows, lives also among sandy thickets of cactuses. As well as other battleships, has a horn armor on a body. Color of a body unusual — gentle-pink. Length of a trunk reaches 115 cm without a tail.

Leads mainly a nocturnalism . Spends the most part of time underground. The Plashchenosny battleship very quickly digs out holes. The dwelling pulls out to itself near ant hills — these insects are its main food.

Argentina Shchitonosets

Can have a bite also snails, larvae, worms, does not disdain plants or their roots.

the International union of conservation in 1996 announced the Argentina shchitonosets a look which is under the threat of disappearance . Further situation was improved — since 2008 he is considered an animal about whom not enough data are collected. But situation nevertheless cannot be considered completely safe. People destroy the habitat of the battleship that is promoted by cultivation of cattle. Local laws took a rare animal under protection.
