20+ Times Nature Got a Little Bit Distracted When Creating Animals

Avatar

There are some animals that look very elegant and beautiful, others are really cute, and some animals, we wouldn’t even want to see in real life. But also, there is one more type of animal — the ones that nature made on the weekend. This is how a bird with human-looking eyes, a spider with horns, and a rodent with tusks were probably created.

We at ViralSection think that nature is the most creative thing there is in the world. Only nature could create something this extraordinary.

South Island takahē: This was believed to be an extinct species but it was rediscovered in 1948 in an isolated valley in the Murchison Mountains in New Zealand.

The Golden mole has eyeballs but they are hidden under their fur and are not functional.

Grant’s golden mole (Eremitalpa granti) . While searching for some herpetofauna in the sand dunes of the Namib desert, I was lucky enough to have an encounter with this little guy. ——————————————————— All 21 species of golden mole are endemic to small parts of Southwestern Africa. Although similar in morphology to true moles and other mole-like families, golden moles are taxonomically distinct and adaptations such as digging claws or dense fur to repel sand are the result of convergent evolution due to the similar demands of a subterranean lifestyle. . Looking at the head, it almost seems like they don’t posses any eyes and why would they, spending the majority of their lives underground? However, eyes are present on the head but covered with fur and thus making them non-functional. . With a maximum length of 9 cm and weight of 25 g the Grant’s golden mole is the smallest of all golden mole species and is also the sole member of its genus. . In contrast to the other species of the family, Grant’s golden moles rarely build tunnels and rather “swim” through the sand. This method of moving around has earned them the rather comical title of “sand shark”. . Specialised in eating termites and invertebrates, these golden moles quite surprisingly even consume vertebrates of the same size such as legless lizards, skinks and web-footed geckos. . A range that coincides with coastal desert where human influence on habitats is limited and only local habitat alteration and fragmentation is known, suggest that this species is currently not threatened with extinction. However, the population trend as well as a precise estimate of overall numbers are still unclear and therefore make it difficult to assess the potential need of conservation efforts. . IUCN conservation status: “Least Concern” . #taiapo #goldenmole #connectwithnature #nature #wildlife #conservation

Love monkeys like this endangered Peruvian woolly monkey @ibamagov? On this World Monkey Day, you can protect this, and hundreds of other species by pledging to not keep primates as pets. Monkeys like this one face many serious threats, but in cases like this, the illegal pet trade could very well lead to the species’ undoing. In recent years, gray woolly monkeys have, unfortunately, become popular pets. Taking these monkeys from their forested home in the Amazon is often a heartbreaking process where mother monkeys are shot and killed, allowing for newly orphaned babies to be taken from the wild and sold via the pet trade. While protected areas like national parks can help to protect remaining populations and the land they depend on, the practice of illegally taking woolly monkeys out of the wild will continue to threaten their survival until the demand for monkeys as pets has been extinguished. #MonkeyDay #woollymonkey #peruvian #endangeredspecies #primate #monkey #cute #notapet #PhotoArk #savetogether

WAY UP NORTH.
Some birds are just almost over the top, almost hard to believe how elaborate the design of nature again can be. The male King Eider, Somateria spectabilis, is one of the worlds most colorful birds, and one of the species very high on any birdwatchers or nature photographers list. It looks almost a bit like a hornbill, but in duck-shape and in the Arctic Ocean…It is truly a marvel how evolution step by step created this exquisite being. Looking at other eider duck species, one can easily see some of those steps, but still… All of course to impress their ladies. This one photographed from a floating hide on the Varanger Peninsula, in the extreme north of the Norwegian mainland. Since we were in a hide, the birds came so wonderfully close to us, for hours. Finally one of the females even wanted to enter our hide through one of the photo-ports that was not occupied. Maybe she wanted to lay eggs in there? I had to softly but firmly, try to convince her to go back out to her buddies again, using my wide angle lens… Varanger, Norway.

If you take a close look at the incisors of cape hyraxes, you will see that they are like small tusks. This is because they are related to elephants.

Males of the greater bird-of-paradise have unique appearances. They use that and their dancing abilities to attract females.

Do you think that all these animals appeared thanks to several chaotic coincidences or is it all a carefully-designed plan?
