Nature is magical. It is majestic, awe-inspiring, and humbling. Most of the time, anyway.

Other times, it’s just plain weird, as evidenced by the strange creatures you’ll see here. Yet even in their weirdness, these creatures are pretty amazing. Take a look for yourself.

Sadly, many of these animals are facing threats from habitat destruction and environmental damage. We can only hope that they survive and continue to make the world a magical place.
