santa claus poodle moth

I've found cute and terrifying pictures of the Venezuelan Poodle moth, I'm only posting the ones I could stand to look at, some freaked me out. Feel free to google it to find more.

Wikipedia reports,

"The Venezuelan Poodle Moth is a possible new species of moth discovered in 2009 by Dr. Arthur Anker of Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, in the Gran Sabana region of Venezuela. It bears similarities to the Diaphora mendica, the Muslin Moth, but most likely belongs to the lepidopteran genusArtace." -source

But I've also read that scientists have confirmed it's real. eh, either way, very interesting to look at.

"A new species of giant, venomous wasp has been found on the Indonesian island of Sulawesi (map), scientists say.The two-inch-long (five-centimeter-long) black insects are shrouded in mystery—all of the wasp specimens caught so far have been dead." -source

goblin shark

"The goblin shark (Mitsukurina owstoni) is a rare, poorly understood species of deep-sea shark. Sometimes called a "living fossil", it is the only extantrepresentative of the family Mitsukurinidae, a lineage some 125 million years old. This species looks unlike any other shark, with an elongated, flattened snout, highly protrusible jaws containing prominent nail-like teeth, and pink coloration. It is usually between 3 and 4 meters (10 and 13 ft) long when mature, though it can grow considerably larger. Goblin sharks inhabit upper continental slopes, submarine canyons, and seamounts throughout the world at depths greater than 100 m (330 ft), with adults found deeper than juveniles." -source


The gerenukLitocranius walleri, also known as the Waller's gazelle, is a long-necked species of antelope found in dry thorn bush scrub and desert in East Africa, from Somalia, Djibouti and eastern Ethiopia through northern and eastern Kenya to northeastern Tanzania. The word gerenuk (pronounced with a hard g) comes from the Somali language, meaning "giraffe-necked". Gerenuk are sometimes also called the giraffe-necked antelope. -source


The tufted deers fangs protrude over its bottom lip and help the animal defend itself against predators or competitors in the wild.

Cuon.alpinus-cutThe dhole is a highly social animal, living in large clans which occasionally split up into small packs to hunt.[3] It primarily preys on medium-sized ungulates, which it hunts by tiring them out in long chases, and kills by disemboweling them. Unlike most social canids (but similar to African wild dogs), dholes let their pups eat first at a kill. Though fearful of humans, dhole packs are bold enough to attack large and dangerous animals such as wild boar, waterbuffalo, and even tigers. -source

I hope to never run across any of these animals. Some may be beautiful but still...
