Rarely Seen Animals You Should Know About

There are many animals that exist in the wild that not many people have seen. It might be because they’re on the verge of being extinct, or they really know how to hide well.

It might also be because they live in hard to travel to places. Today we will explore the unexplored and bring home to you animals you don’t see every day as we count down 15 rarely seen animals.

A Poodle Moth Number 15 on our list is the Poodle Moth. This fuzzy creature is equal parts adorable and puzzling, making you question the line between reality and science fiction.

Setting the internet on fire because of its bizarre resemblance to a Pokémon or demonic Furby, meet the mysterious Poodle Moth.

Because of its distinctive antenna and physical characteristics, the Poodle Moth is believed to be a new species of moth.

The bizarre, white creature with bulging, black eyes and strange, brown antennae is a blend between a large moth and a fluffy white poodle, but is in fact an actual creature.

Rare enough that photos only surface occasionally, and in doing so baffle the internet and confuse the public, a closer examination is necessary before actual classification of the animal can occur.

In the meantime, the images that emerge continue to mystify the world at large, only adding to the elusive mystery that surrounds this strange little moth creature.

It’s unfortunate that scientists trekking through the park in have been unable to spot it again, but the creature doesn’t appear to be a hoax.

Its rediscovery would confirm what we pretty much already know: Nature is chock full of amazing stuff. Naked Mole Rat

Number 14 on our list is the naked Mole rat. There are many different kinds of mole rats.

The best known is probably the naked mole rat, whose hairless, tubular, wrinkled body makes it appear like a tiny walrus. Naked mole rats are rodents, but they live in communities like those of many insects.

Several dozen rats live together in colonies led by one dominant rat—the queen.

As in some insect species, the queen is the only naked mole rat female to breed and bear young. Worker animals dig the burrows that the entire clan inhabits, using their prominent teeth and snouts.

They also gather the roots and bulbs for the colony to eat. Other rats tend to the queen. Most other types of mole rats live on their own or in small families.

Though mole rats spend most of their time excavating and foraging in their burrows, they occasionally emerge to search for seeds or other plants.

In the world of animal models, naked mole rats are the supermodels. They rarely get cancer, are resistant to some types of pain, and can survive up to 18 minutes without oxygen.

But perhaps their greatest feat is that they don’t age. Mice in captivity live 4 years; based on their size, we would not expect naked mole rats to live past 6 years.

Instead, some live beyond 30 years, and even at that age breeding females stay fertile.
