These are the weirdest and ugliest animals you will ever see.
Animals, like humans, have a classification in a degree of beauty and ugliness. In the wonderful world of animals, many animals appear to be weird, odd, and even have an ugly look that would probably kill you while looking at them. Most people will not even give those extremely weird and ugly animals a second look. In the worst cases, these innocent animals are being killed, slaughtered or tortured because their weird look made people could not bear to look at them. As for the animal protection and rights organization, they feel a concern in the sharp decline of these weird animals as people pay no attention and care for them.
Here, I would like to say that these ugliest animals have the right to survive on any piece of land scattered across the earth. Their weird appearance is probably one of the ways they sustain their species on earth. Therefore, we should pay equal treatment to then while dealing with these weird animals just like we would treat other living organisms. They do have their rights to ensure their continuity of species on earth. Neither graceful nor beautiful, these animals are nonetheless very unique and remarkable animals.
The Matamata Turtles (Chelusfimbriatus) dwells particularly in the stagnant pools in Brazil and the Guianas. Its species can also be found in parts of the Amazon River, Peru, Venezuela and Trinidad. It has a bizarre look, with its straight-line shell length that reaches to 18 inches (46cm) or more. Its head and neck are flat and large, but are covered with warts, ridges and protuberances. The long snout enables it to breathe while almost completely submerged. The female turtle usually can breed to 12-28 round, hard-shelled eggs with each egg nearly 3.5-4cm in diameter in rivers or on high ground near the banks of small creeks. The incubation takes as long as 208 days.
This picture shows a larva (hellgrammite) of Dobsonfly (corydalus sp.) viewed under a scanning electron microscope with the enlargement power of 10 to 500 times from its original size. Through the high powered microscope, humans have viewed some shocking scenes that the human eye itself is limited to seeing.
Dobsonfly inhibits throughout the Americas, particularly in the north and central part of America, and in Asia, Australia and Africa. This insect can be rather weird and frightening in its appearance. Both male and female Dobsonflies can grow up to the length of 5 inches (12.5cm), and have long antennae. When they do not use the wings, they will be folded along the length of their walking stick-like bodies. The female can breed between 100 to 1,000 eggs on a branch or on rocks near a stream.
