10 CREATURES WHICH ALMOST LOOK UNREAL
Animals are an essential part of the ecosystem. They come in all sizes and adaptations. From the big five of the sea and land to the tiny insects, they complete our ecosystem. However, other animals look completely weird and unreal. Some of these weird-looking animals are believed to have evolved after the mass extinction that wiped out the entire living things about 65 million years ago. From a glass-like a caterpillar to a leafy sea dragon, here are ten weird-looking animals you never knew existed.

1. The panda ant is a black-and-white-colored ant that was first discovered in 1938 in Chile. They use the colors to warn their enemies – a condition called “aposematic.”

If you look at panda ant from a distance, you would think it is just a regular ant. Its body shape resembles those of ants, but it is a type of wingless wasp. The panda ant was first discovered in Chile in 1938, and it is mostly found in the sclerophyll forests. This unique type of wasp has a white coloring covering its whole body with dotted black spots. This is where the name panda ant comes from because it is colored just like pandas. The female panda ant has thicker fur than their male counterparts, and that distinguishes them as the females. This characteristic is referred to as “sexual dimorphism.” The female panda ants also have no wings, but the males have wings.

The white and black colors are not only for decoration but also give the ant aposematic features. This means the colors serve as a warning to predators and enemies. Other powerful defense mechanisms the panda ant possess are a painful sting, audible squeaking, and a sturdy exoskeleton.

Differentiating between a male and female panda ant is possible because they possess different and unique characteristics. The male panda ant is larger than the female panda ant and has wings. The female panda ant, on the other hand, is wingless with thick fur and are smaller. The ants have a life span of two years, and every year, on average, the female lays about 2,000 eggs. Despite the massive number of eggs laid, the survival rate of these ants is low and they are at risk of extinction.

2. The leafy seadragon is a seaweed-looking marine fish found only in southern Australian waters.

Here is another creature that looks unreal. You might be thinking that it is seaweed. Uncanny, but the truth is this is a type of fish found mainly in western and southern Australian waters. The leaf-like protrusions on its body are not for swimming, either. They give the dragon fish camouflage characteristics that blend in perfectly with seaweed.

They move in the water using the invisible pectoral fins near their neck and have a dorsal fin on their tail. The ridges are undetectable, making the fish in the water look like floating seaweed. Unlike other creatures, the male leafy seadragons carry eggs to full term and hatch them. The female leafy seadragon will deposit up to two hundred and fifty bright, pink eggs onto the male’s tail. The male will then carry the eggs for nine weeks, and then the little leafy seadragons will pop out. Research shows that only five percent of the eggs survive.

Leafy seadragons’ inability to move faster put them at risk of threats. Sea storms sweep these unique creatures up onto the shores because of their failure to hold onto something like seahorses do. Also, divers often pluck them from the sea and keep them as pets. This action led to a massive reduction of their population in the early 90s. The Australian government had to put in place an act to protect the endangered species. Ever since then, acquiring/possessing a leafy seadragon is a costly affair with prices ranging from $10,000 to $15,000 per leafy seadragon.

3. The jeweled caterpillar is found mostly in the mangrove forests of Southern and Central America. Their near-transparent body with red spikes makes them look like jewels.
This is the world’s most stunning and living-diamond-like creature. Jeweled caterpillars look so beautiful, stunning, and unreal because of their near-transparent body. However, the glass-like body is not wet it looks to be. It is a sticky goop that acts as the caterpillar’s protective gear against its enemies. Daceridae, as it is scientifically known, belongs to the family of moths called zygaenoid. They are mostly found in the mangrove forests of the South and Central America, especially in Costa Rica, Mexico, and the Caribean Islands.
