    Here are some truely amazing pictures of animals that many of us have never seen, or even heard of. Knowledge is Power, and Awareness is the Key. Many of these animals are endangered. If anyone wants to contribute to the preservation of any of these animals, go to this link and have a peek. [​IMG]

    Told'ja so! [​IMG]

    I know! Don't you just want to give the Sun Bear a big ole kiss or something? I daresay that the Star-Nosed Mole doesn't solicit the same feeling though. :eek:

    Cool! I love everything except those blasted monkey and apes. Especially that blob fish, octopus etc. People always seem ready to save the cuddly cute ones, so it's nice to see some of the less loved ones mentioned.

    Yes, the Blobfish is my favorite I think! He almost looks like a grotesque (sp) human! And I like the Yeti Crab. And the Sucker-Footed Bat. And the Sun Bear. And and and and and. Oh heck, I love 'em all!

    Quote:I used to have a Frilled Lizard. You can get them online...they are kinda spendy, but really cool. [​IMG] I couldn't quite get the temps/humidity right to get their eggs to hatch, though.

    Cool! Is it them that can spray blood out of their eyes when they feel threatened, or is that something else?
