Most likely, you’re trying to decide if it’s a gazelle or a giraffe. A long-necked antelope with slender limbs, a wedge-shaped head, and round eyes is what Gerenuk actually is. Found in Africa and also called as giraffe gazelle, the animal spends much of its time foraging and feeding.

#6. Yeti Crab

Known as a blind crab in deep seas, Kiwa hirsuta or Yeti crab owns silky long, pale yellow setae covering its legs and claws. This creature’s hairy legs earned it the moniker of Yeti, the name of the hideous snowman of the Himalayas.

If you suppose Okapi is a cross between a deer and a zebra, you are mistaken. In spite of its zebra-like stripes, it is the only living relative of the giraffe and originates from the Democratic Republic of the Congo in Central Africa. Okapi is distinguished by the thick and oily brown fur that allows it to stay dry in the rain.

#8. Star-Nosed Mole

The list of the most weirdest-looking animals would not be complete without mentioning star-nosed mole. You can find this creature in wet low areas in the northern parts of North America. Featured with a star-like nose, the species is astonishingly speedy and has a good reputation for being the fastest eater in the world.

#9. Aye-Aye

Discovered on the island of Madagascar, Aye-aye is the world’s largest nocturnal primate distinguished by a bushy tail that is larger than its body. In order to feed, this odd creature taps on trunk then rips away the bark and and gobbles up the bugs.

#10. Thorny devil

Despite its creepy name, it is not a hideous monster but a weird-looking creature found in Australia. This creature, often known as the “thorny dragon,” is actually a lizard that is colored in camouflaging tones of desert browns and tans that vary in intensity from light to dark depending on the season.
