Ten weird creatures

Found this 10 weirdest newly discovered animals link on the NPR site. It seems like the buggers get weirder and weirder as the humans discover them. The rarest are probably just perceived at first as strange and unusual; but imagine what it was like to have seen a rhinoceros for the first time. The Europeans thought it was some kind of unicorn :P

Here's a link to the National Geographic article.

And, of course, may favorite - pictured is the Yoda Bat.
