More of World's most weirdest animals...

There is always part two of something. Even movies have part 2 or episodes 2,3 so on so fourth.Ever since i started blogging, i have never seen so many views to my articles as the world's most weirdest animals has!!So folks here goes, more to keep you satisfied. (Did that just sound like im talking about food?)However, id like to assure you that all those scientific names, I still do not get them!!


Truth be told, if i met one of this in a jungle, i would probably think its just a monkey!! How blond could i get!

Sloths are medium-sized mammals that live in Central and South America belonging to the families Megalonychidae and Bradypodidae, part of the order Pilosa. Most scientists call these two families the Folivora suborder, while some call it Phyllophaga.Sloths are omnivores. They may eat insects, small lizards and carrion, but their diet consists mostly of buds, tender shoots, and leaves. 

2. Emperor Tamarin
The mustache thing is funny!Makes the animal look like those people in the 19th century!But wait till you hear his story.........

The Emperor Tamarin (Saguinus imperator) is a tamarin allegedly named for its similarity with the German emperor Wilhelm II. The name was first intended as a joke, but has become the official scientific name. Lives in the southwest Amazon Basin, in east Peru, north Bolivia and in the west Brazilian states of Acre and Amazonas. The fur is predominantly grey colored, with yellowish speckles on its chest. The hands and feet are black and the tail is brown. Outstanding is its long, white mustache, which extends to both sides beyond the shoulders. The animal reaches a length of 24 to 26 cm, plus a 35 cm long tail. It weighs approximately 300 to 400 g. 

 Let me begin by declaring that i cannot pronounce that and its not weird, its SCARY!!!!!
The Axolotl (or ajolote) (Ambystoma mexicanum) is the best-known of the Mexican neotenic mole salamanders belonging to the Tiger Salamander complex. Larvae of this species fail to undergo metamorphosis, so the adults remain aquatic and gilled. The species originates from the lake underlying Mexico City. Axolotls are used extensively in scientific research due to their ability to regenerate most body parts, ease of breeding, and large embryos. They are commonly kept as pets in the United States, Great Britain, Australia, Japan (where they are sold under the name Wooper Rooper, and other countries.

Is there any American,Brit, Australian or Japanese who would like to elaborate...WHY ON EARTH WOULD YOU WANT TO KEEP A PET THAT LOOKS LIKE THIS!!!!

4. Aye-aye

I cannot even bring myself to look at it!!This is NASTY!!!!!

The Aye-aye (Daubentonia madagascariensis) is a strepsirrhine native to Madagascar that combines rodent-like teeth with a long, thin middle finger to fill the same ecological niche as a woodpecker. It is the world's largest nocturnal primate, and is characterized by its unique method of finding food; it taps on trees to find grubs, then gnaws holes in the wood and inserts its elongated middle finger to pull the grubs out. 

It looks like a demon!!!

5. Tarsier
 Look at this thing!!AND IT HAS HANDS!!Eeeewhheee!!!!

Tarsiers are prosimian primates of the genus Tarsius, a monotypic genus in the family Tarsiidae, which is itself the lone extant family within the infraorder Tarsiiformes. The phylogenetic position of extant tarsiers within the order Primates has been debated for much of the past century, and tarsiers have alternately been classified with strepsirrhine primates in the suborder Prosimii, or as the sister group to the simians (=Anthropoidea) in the infraorder Haplorrhini. Analysis of SINE insertions, a type of macromutation to the DNA, is argued to offer very persuasive evidence for the monophyly of Haplorrhini, where other lines of evidence, such as DNA sequence data, had remained ambiguous. Thus, some systematists argue that the debate is conclusively settled in favor of a monophyletic Haplorrhini. 

Stay tuned folks, i can assure you more is yet to come.......
