What would happen if you crossed a bird with a frog? Well, you might wind up with something like the African jacana, which lays its eggs on floating nests. Lily pads, level up!

This aquatic gastropod is a Golden Apple Snail. These snails have managed to thrive in areas where they don't belong and are recognized among the world's worst invasive alien species.

Pufferfish have spines on their skin and can even inflate into a ball shape to evade predators! Predators unfortunate enough to gobble up a puffer prior to inflation will not enjoy their snack. Most pufferfish contain a toxic substance that makes them foul tasting and potentially deadly to other fish.

Okapis often travel by themselves, but they still have ways of communicating with others of their kind. A scent gland on each foot leaves behind a sticky, tar-like substance wherever they have walked, marking their territory and leaving their personal "perfume" behind! Smell you later!

Us waking up on Monday!

This grumpy-looking but adorable creature grows white colored tufts on either side of its face as it ages. Talk about bedhead!

The nose knows! How can you tell a crocodile from an alligator? Crocodiles have a more pointed snout, shaped like a "V." Alligators have a rounded snout, shaped like a "U." Can you tell which is which? Let us know in the comments!

The Dugong, or “Sea Cow”, is a herbivorous marine mammal that is the last representative of the once-diverse family Dugongidae. This social, seagrass feeding mammal can live for over 70 years in the wild. However, for anthropogenic reasons, their population is in decline and the Dugong is threatened by extinction.
