There are millions of distinct species on our plant with more and more being discovered every day. Some of these creatures challenge our perceptions of what life is supposed to look like. Just take a look at these bizarre creatures that look like something out of a sci-fi film but couldn't be more real.
#1 Venezuelan Poodle Moth
This strange looking moth was actually discovered in 2009 during an expedition in Venezuela. It's covered in white fur that resembles that of a poodle which is where its name comes from. Its wings are even covered in fur.
#2 Dumbo Octopus
This bizarre looking little fella is named after Dumbo because its ears look kind of like the animated pachyderm. This octopus isn't even the weirdest looking creature on our list though.
#3 Macropinna Microstoma
Residing deep in the ocean, this weird looking fish looks like something straight out of a science fiction film. The head of this creature is transparent and filled with fluid. You can actually see its eye lenses! Creepy!
#4 Lowland Streaked Tenrec
This African mammal is only found in Madagascar. The tiny rodent is the only mammal on earth that uses snake-like stridulation to make sounds.
