9 Hairy frog
8 Dung Beetle
It’s not an otter, it’s not a duck!! The platypus is by pure definition a rare nature defying animal, that by all accounts it shouldn’t have ever existed!! Native to eastern Australia this super hybrid not only lays eggs and feeds her babies with milk from its breast, like a cat feeds her babies, but it’s equipped with super electroreception. That means that since the platypus has a very poor vision, the electric field that prey generates with movement, allows the platypus to go for a hunt, and succeed. In addition, males have spurs on the hind legs that excrete a potent venom. When he scratches his opponent, he leaves him in serious pain.
5 Parasitoid Wasp
If you were a superhero, what would be your superpower? Here is one that will shock you. The largest marsupial in the Americas! The opossum has super powers!! Ticks carry Lyme disease among other illnesses that threaten humans if bitten by an infected tick. It was recently discovered that opossums attract ticks and opossums, love to eat them! Therefore, having opossums around your yard will reduce the tick infestation that is out of control in some regions of the US. Besides protecting humans, they are very clean animals and have the superpower of immunity to snake venoms!! Including rattlesnakes and Russel vipers. Research is being done to extract the molecule responsible for the opossum’s super power in other to create antivenoms for animals and humans. These are few of the many reasons why opossums should be given a medal and a safe place to live near our homes.
2 Toxoplasma Gondii
Found worldwide, this is a super powerful single-celled organism that is a parasite… its superpower is so incredible that can, and will control minds!! Capable of infesting any warm-blooded animal but able to reproduce only on cats. If ever exposed to this sinister mastermind parasite, the host can develop antibodies so to not be infected with toxoplasmosis. If mice or humans contract the parasite, they become less fearful and drawn to cats, it the cat ingests the infected mice, this parasite will have its happy ending.
1 Electric Eel
South America is known for many animals with superpowers, such as jaguars who catch their prey with one leap, Piranhas who leave only bones and now, the electric eel. Despite the name, this animal is not an eel but a slender knifefish that can produce electric currents. The electricity produced is not localized but comes from skin cells all over the body. A knifefish can produce 5 times more voltage than a power socket. As you can imagine, this electric eel is at the top of the south American food chain
