10. Tardigrade
The tardigrade, also known as the water bear is nearly indestructible. Discovered in the late 1700s, this

strange microscopic creature is an eight legged, clawed animal found around the world, even in the frozen

tundra of Antarctica. Cited as the most resilient creature that exists, this little micro-animal can survive

everything from above boiling temperatures to even the cruel conditions of outer space. Intense pressure and

radiation aren't even enough to take down this little guy. They can survive thanks to a host of interesting

adaptations, including a protein that shields radiation damage to DNA. Even more fascinating is that

researchers were able to transfer this protein to human cells and it was able to prevent x-ray damage to DNA

by up to 40%! The Tardigrade is able enter a state called Cryptobiosis in which metabolic processes stop. It

is a state similar to death whenever conditions become too intense to overcome. This amazing creature feeds on

plant and animal cell fluid as well as the fluid of some bacteria and is can be found in many patches of moss

around the world.
9. “Hoff” Crab
When it isn´t scuttling in slow-motion across the beach, the ´Hoff´crab finds its home deep in the thermal

vents in between South America and Antarctica. It is named after famous Baywatch and Knight Rider star David

Hasselhoff, due to the crabs unusually hairy chest. Despite being in one of the coldest locations on Earth,

the ocean depths near Antarctica, the noble ´Hoff´crab has to endure scorching temperatures at over 300°C

(570°F). This is because the thermal vents that they call home are actually the product of undersea volcanos

and they heat the ocean and release chemicals into the water that the crab has to endure. It does this because

it is not the only creature to survive these conditions, the volcanic gases are a breeding ground for

bacteria. The ´Hoff´will trap these bacteria within it´s hairy chest for a tasty treat. Though called the

´Hoff´crab these animals are actually a type of squat lobster and were only recently discovered but already

seem to have the support of their namesake who tweeted several references to the hairy, antarctic creatures.
8. Elephant Seal
The aptly named Elephant Seal braces the sub-zero antarctic conditions as the resident heavyweight. As one of

the largest carnivores alive today, the elephant seal can weigh close to 9000 pounds! They are easily

recognized as males have a trunk-like nose that is used for various calls. Often living in close proximity to

penguin colonies, the elephant seal is a territorial animal and males often fight each other for the right to

mate with females. Often this will lead males to go long periods of time without eating as they remain on

their territory to protect it from others. Known for being one of the seals species that spend the most time

on land, the elephant seal can spend weeks without entering the water. Their huge bodies provide lots of

blubber which can be used to keep warm and provide nourishment when food conditions are low. Though

intimidating, they are still prey to the well coordinated orcas that patrol the Antarctic waters.
7. Sea Pig
The noble sea pig is a close relative of the sea cucumber. This little guy is pudgy and pink just like his

land counterpart. The sea pig however is just a little smaller at under six inches long on average, but it

makes up for it in numbers. In fact, sea pigs make up a majority of the weight on many ocean floors including

many parts of Antarctica. Being one of the few creatures that can survive the intense pressure of the ocean

above, the sea pig has a soft body with inflatable limbs that help it maneuver the sea bed. These animals feed

on leftover remnants of living creatures that have fallen into their home and hundreds will often gather

around the husk of a dead whale that falls from above. Though they gather in large numbers they are not known

to be social animals with each one simply sensing food along the ocean floor. Interestingly they will all face

the same direction, though scientists are still unsure as to why.

Albino Sea Turtle Volunteers cleaning up the shores of Australia spotted a very rare albino green sea turtle in February. The creature, which hatched on February 6 was seen wandering on the beach until it eventually headed into the sea. Sadly, the adorable turtle's chances of survival are not high. A common green turtle only has a one in one thousand shot of surviving to maturity, and the albino’s shot is even worse as its light pigment makes it an easy target for predators. 8. Sparklewing Researchers have been busy in central Africa lately. They have discovered 60 new species of dragonflies and damselflies throughout the continent, which is the most to be documented at one time in over a century. One particular type of Sparklewing discovered was called Umma Gumma after the 1969 album called Ummagumma, which is slang for making love. The poor soil of the continent, particularly the central part, is ideal for dragonflies, according to the team. 7. Roly Poly Sometimes new species of organisms are found in the most unexpected places. A carnivorous plant called a giant sundew was recently discovered thanks to photographs posted on Facebook. And last year while on a field trip, students from Loyola Marymount University found a new type of isopod, or pillbug on a rocky beach less than a mile from the Port of Los Angeles. The new species was named after the teacher of the class. 6. Giant Tortoise For years people assumed that the two groups of tortoises found on the Galapagos Island of Santa Cruz were from the same species. They only lived 6 miles apart from each other, after all. Genetic tests performed last year, however, showed researchers the two species were very different and evolved millions of years apart from each other. The discovery enables scientists to provide better help to the tortoises, whose population has dropped to historic lows in recent years. 5. Tiny Salamander Scientists found a new species of salamander in Mexico in November of this year. The new minuscule species has a large tongue and much bigger reproductive organs than similar salamanders. While the discovery is exciting for experts in the field, there is also a flip side. The species, along with almost one-third of all accounted amphibians, are in danger of going extinct. Biologists explain that the creatures are likely to be gone by the end of the century. 4. Peacock Spiders Since 2006 seven new species of these uncommon spiders have been discovered. The spiders are only a few millimeters long, but what they lack in size they make up for in awesomeness. The spiders are remarkably colorful, an aspect which forms an essential part of the creatures mating rituals much like peacocks. They also don’t act like common spiders. Instead, they perceive and react to their environment, much like a dog would. Australian biologist and peacock spider enthusiast Jurgen Otto has gained a large following online thanks to his footage of the arachnids. 3. Pink Elephant You may have thought that pink elephants only exist in cartoons and hallucinations. This thought process may make it surprising to learn that pink elephants can be found in nature, though seeing one is exceedingly rare. Earlier this year a tourist visiting Kruger National Park in South Africa spotted a pink African elephant drinking from a river with its herd. Those in the know believe the elephant to be an albino. Like most other albino animals in the wild, this creatures albinism will significantly decrease its chances of survival. 2. Horse Bat Many websites and blogs feature this picture, where the creature is called a horse bat. Apparently, a Nigerian person found this mystery creature in his friends fish pond. Certainly, this is an odd looking bat who has an enormous face that resembles a horse's. So just what is this bizarre looking oddity? No, this is not some genetically engineered creature that belongs in an episode of South Park. This strange being is a hammer-headed bat, a megabat found throughout Africa. 1. White Bear Wildlife workers in British Columbia recently spotted a bear cub that has since left scientists confused and bewildered. The young black bear is unusual for one very apparent reason; its fur is completely white. Biologists have two possible explanations for the oddity. One is that the bear is a Spirit bear, a light-furred subspecies of the black bear. Another is that the bear is an albino.
