Below are some of the strange, beautiful, hideous and funny animals God created demonstrating not only His creativity, humor and artistry but illuminating the absurdity that “evolution” could have randomly produced such animals. Here’s a description of a few then down below is a bunch of great photos…

  • Aye Aye  – The aye-aye is a long-fingered lemur, a strepsirrhine 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.
  • Patagonian mara is a relatively large rodent in the mara genus Dolichotis. It is also known as the Patagonian cavy, Patagonian hare, or dillaby. This herbivorous, somewhat rabbit-like animal is found in open and semiopen habitats in Argentina, including large parts of Patagonia.
  • Gerenuk, also known as the giraffe gazelle, is a long-necked antelope found in the Horn of Africa and the drier parts of East Africa
  • The dugong is a medium-sized marine mammal. It is one of four living species of the order Sirenia, which also includes three species of manatees. It is the only living representative of the once-diverse family Dugongidae; its closest modern relative, Steller’s sea cow, was hunted to extinction in the 18th century
  • Lamprey is a jawless fish
  • The fossa is a cat-like, carnivorous Mammal endemic to Madagascar. It is a member of the Eupleridae, a family of carnivorans closely related to the mongoose
  • The Sunda flying lemur or Sunda colugo, also known as the Malayan flying lemur
  • A duiker (“dy-ker”) is a small to medium-sized brown antelope native to sub-Saharan Africa
  • Gobi jerboa is a species of rodent in the family Dipodidae. It is found in China and Mongolia
  • The red-lipped batfish or Galapagos batfish is a fish of unusual morphology found around the Galapagos Islands and off Peru
  • Umbonia spinosa is a species of treehopper or thorn bug (family Membracidae) native to South America.
  • A tenrec is any species of mammal within the afrotherian family Tenrecidae endemic to Madagascar. Tenrecs are widely diverse; as a result of convergent evolution some resemble hedgehogs, shrews, opossums, rats and/or mice.
  • Glaucus atlanticus is a species of small, blue sea slug. These sea slugs are pelagic; they float upside down by using the surface tension of the water to stay up, where they are carried along by the winds and ocean currents.
  • The okapi, also known as the forest giraffe, Congolese giraffe, or zebra giraffe, is an artiodactyl mammal native to the northeast Democratic Republic of the Congo in central Africa. Although the okapi has striped markings reminiscent of zebras, it is most closely related to the giraffe
  • Scotoplanes, commonly known as the sea pig, is a genus of deep-sea sea cucumbers
