Tube-Nosed Fruit Bat First registered in 1984, the strange features of this animal make it one of the strangest and scariest looking of all known bats. Commonly found in Australia, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, and the Solomon Islands, this bat is definitely not you typical fruit eater. it has two separate tube like nostrils, which are about 6 mm long and project outwards above the mouth. This little guy actually is no threat to humans, and still, we wouldn’t want to meet him face to face!
The Darwin’s Bark Spider This spider is actually terrifying in more ways than just being a spider. Recently, this little creature was discovered and it was found that they weave the longest webs ever.The largest spider web weaved from this beast? 82 feet!!! That’s almost 8 stories high and some webs have even spanned rivers. It is also said that since the length is so long, their web material is 10 times stronger than Kevlar aka a bulletproof vest, How crazy is that?
Cari Hill, New Zealand: Breakfast Time. Shortly after purchasing the Giraffe Manor in Nairobi, Kenya, the owners learned that the only remaining Rothschild’s giraffes in the country were at risk, as their sole habitat was being subdivided into smallholdings. So they began a breeding programme to reintroduce the Rothschild’s giraffe into the wild. Today, guests can enjoy visits from resident giraffes in search of a treat.

This image shows two males about to fight, one already up on a rock, the other bounding in with a young male.
