6 Creepy Creatures That Are Actually Quite Cute
Happy Halloween! To celebrate, let these creepy cuties terrorize you with adorableness!
1. Tube-nosed Bat: The tube-nosed fruit bat Nyctimene species was uncovered in the Muller Range mountains and is said to be important members of the animal kingdom in the area – they disperse seeds in tropical forests.
The furry creature gets its name due to its distinctive mustard-yellow nose, with its tubular nostrils a change from the more common leaf-nosed bat.
This is a previously seen but still undescribed species endemic to the forests of Papua New Guinea.
2- Aye-Aye: While the type of lemur looks a balding werewolf, the creepiest aspect about the aye-aye is probably the over-sized spindly claw that it uses to grasp onto tree branches.
The longest finger—the middle one—can rotate 360 degrees around the hand and bores into wood with sharp claws to gather insects for a tasty meal.
It is the world’s largest nocturnal primate, and is characterized by its unusual method of finding food; it taps on trees to find grubs, then gnaws holes in the wood using its forward slanting incisors to create a small hole in which it inserts its narrow middle finger to pull the grubs out.
3-Wolf Bat: This guy looks like a wolf
4-This mole is nearly blind, but that creepy looking tentacle makes up for it by providing an excellent sense of touch.
5- These deer grow long, fang-like canine teeth. Awesome.
6- Wolf Spider: Wolf spiders are members of the family Lycosidae, from the Ancient Greek word “λύκος” meaning “wolf”. They are robust and agile hunters with excellent eyesight.
