I bet there are a lot of cute and funny animals you’ve never heard of! Apparently, there are 1,367,555 non-insect animal species (and this number represents only 1% of all animal species that ever lived on the face of Earth!) that are identified today, so you can’t possibly know all of them, even if you are a quite passionate animal enthusiast. There are a lot of wonderful little creatures that will surely impress and amaze you. Scientists discover new species every day and they also admit that they are not yet familiar with all existing animals. Here are 9 of the cutest animals you’ve never heard of that will surely leave you speechless:
1. The Blue Parrotfish
In my opinion, this is definitely one of the strangest and most beautiful animals I’ve ever seen! Well, I do love fish a lot, so I just had to include this wonderful specimen on this list of animals you’ve never heard of. It can be found in the waters of the Atlantic Ocean, especially on coral reefs in shallow waters. They average 30-75 cm in length and 80% of their time they are looking for food. They develop a large beak (here’s the parrot resemblance) that is used for scrapping algae and small organisms from rocks.
