El mundo animal es muy variado, dado que existen un sin fin de especies en el mundo entero. Algunos de ellos bastantes comunes, tanto, que si te piden describirlos lo harías sin tartamudear.

Te pongo un ejemplo: Si alguien te pidiera que describieras un cerdo, dirías que es un animal de hocico rosado y cola enroscada, dado que es el cerdo más común comercializado por el ser humano. Pero, la siguiente lista de animales, quizá ni por la mente te había pasado que existieran, son tan raros que de seguro te preguntarás, ¿qué son?.

My Madagacar Leaf-nosed Snake!😝 This girl eats anoles for me, they are strictly lizard eaters since a diet of rodents would be bad for them since their body isn’t designed to digest them. Vine Snakes are the same way! An occasional rodent is okay for them if they’ll eat it, many of them actually won’t! #leafnosedsnake #madagascar #langaha #bizarre #weird #colubrid #colubridsofinstagram #snake #snakesofinstagram #snakes #reptile #reptilesofinstagram #petstagram #animalsofinstagram #girlswithsnakes #girlswithreptiles #exoticpet #beautifulsnake #animalsofinstagram #herpetology #snek #instagood #instapet #instadaily #animallover #snakelover #reptilelover #reptilekeeper #herp

🔹Silver Butterfly Chrysalids 🔸📸 : @richards_inverts – 🔻Scientific name: Tithorea harmonia 🔺Origin: Paraná, Brazil – A repost of one of my more popular videos from back in April this year. 😊 . These are chrysalids of a small butterfly that is native to South America and the shininess of them are just out of this world! ✨ . You can make out the distorted reflections of trees and the cloudy sky on the body of the chrysalis (even a silhouette of me with the phone camera), as if they’re coated in silver! 😮 ___________________________________ •📸 Camera: iPhone 7 ✖️✖️✖️✖️✖️ #Tithorea #Tithoreaharmonia #TigerWingButterfly #HarmoniaTigerWing #TigerButterfly #Butterfly #Moth #Caterpillar #Borboleta #Mariposa #Nymphalidae #Lepidoptera #ButterfliesofInstagram #MothsofInstagram #InsectsofInstagram #Animalsofinstagram #Entomology #Insect #Bug #Animal #Pet #Nature #RichardsInvertsBestNine2018 #SnagNation

Photo by @joelsartore | Mexican honeypot ants are named for the incredible way they store resources. These ants are like tiny refrigerators, stashing food for the whole colony in anticipation of dry seasons. Designated worker ants called “repletes” hang from the ceiling of their nest, while foraging workers bring them nectar and juices from insect prey– which is edible with a sweet and tangy flavor. Their abdomens slowly become spherical and transparent as they swell with sugary liquids. They can reach the size of a small grape— some become so large that they cannot leave the nest! All of this work insures that the whole colony can eat even when food is not readily available. These little ants are so full of nutrients that they are often eaten by other animals— even humans. This is one of over 100 species of honeypot ant found in warm arid regions around the world. This species occurs in the southwestern US and northern Mexico, where they feed primarily on nectar and small insects. #honeypotant #PhotoArk
