Are bizarre animals your pastime? Here, in the Amazon, you will find tons of them. Just come and give a glance to some of the Amazon Rainforest Wildlife animals with the most unusual conditions ever!
Here’s a top 10 of the strangest creatures you will see when coming to the Amazon. Do you want to see them closer? Come to Ecuador and take pictures and videos!
This is one of the most dangerous fish species: it discharges electricity in a number of volts that could kill!
We spoke of them in our article about our outstanding animals, but they are cute as hell and are one of the strangest animals you will ever know about. Sloths only move when they need it -and they do it so slowly-; they have a low temperature for a mammal, and take up to a month to digest food!
These bugs are so weird that look like a wizard’s head, an owl’s eyes, and an unshelled peanut! All of these resemblances are just to confuse and deceive predators… well done!
The filthiest fish ever! It is a pencil-shaped fish, also called “toothpick fish”, which most reported ability is to swim up anal orifices and fill them with parasites. Ugh! Be careful when you swim around; ask your tour guide!
Have you seen birds that look like wood or fungi? The potoo is one of them: these birds stand like a statue on a dead tree branch and nobody would notice they are not part of it until they fly!
These are the largest species of bats, and the only bat species that can fish!
These are the world’s largest ants. Take your pinky and imagine it is an ant. Incredible, huh? Their name may come by their size, similar to the one of a bullet.
Have you seen a frog before? Of course yes. Now, have you seen the inside of a frog without having to open it? That’s only possible in the Amazon, where some frogs have a transparent abdomen that allows you to see each organ without X-Rays!
We described these water-running Hussain Bolts in another article, but they are so amazing and rare that it is wrong not to mention them here! They are also called basilisks and run up to 20 meters on the rivers’ surface, at 8.4 km.
Since not all frogs are green or transparent, here we show you one so gorgeous that it’s better not to touch it, or you will die! Their colors are an alert for predators not to hunt them, just as traffic lights tell us not to cross the streets when it’s red.
