Finding weird animals is always fun and exciting, but when the discoveries that were made in 2012 include fish with penis heads and tulips with digestive systems, then we instantly become a lot more intrigued!!
The most bizarre discoveries of this year are:
Siphusauctum Gregarium - Tulips with digestive systems.
Microcebus Murinus - Cannibal lemurs.
Pliosaurus Funkei - Sea creatures that look like dinosaurs. In other words, Predator X.
Illacme Plenipes - Millipedes with 750 legs.
Erpeton Tentaculatus - Snakes with tentacles.
Vorticella - Tiny animals trapped in cocoons.
Phallostethus Cuulong - Fish with penis heads.
Worms that use acid to eat bones.
Chondrocladia Lyra - Sponges that eat meat.
Pelodiscus Sinensis - Turtles that pee from their mouths.
We don't know about you, but these animals are CRAY and extremely cool of course!!
But we know one thing's for sure, we doubt anyone would ever want them as pets!! LOLz
