From a squid with human teeth to an amphibian that looks like a wang join us as we take a look at the 10 funniest looking animals on Earth.
10. Promachoteuthis Sulcus
Promachoteuthis sulcus is a type of squid so rare scientists have only ever examined a single specimen caught by a German research vessel. This bizarre squid appears to have teeth very similar to a human. Be careful if you try to eat this thing! It might take a bite out of you instead!
9. Baby Aardvark
When aardvarks are young they have floppy ears and extremely wrinkly skin which makes them look like some sort of cross between a small pink elephant and a bald kangaroo. Fortunately for the aardvark it will grow a full coat of fur after about 5 weeks and can start eating termites after just 9 weeks.
8. Saiga Antelope
Once native from Europe all the way to Mongolia, the Saiga antelope is now considered to be critically endangered. Found only in the grasslands of Russia and Kazakhstan this funny looking animal uses its trunk-like nose to help regulate its blood temperature by warming air in the winter and cooling air in the summer.
Found only on the islands of Southeast Asia, the tarsier is among the world’s smallest primates. Each one of it’s huge eyeballs is about 16 mm in diameter making them the same size as its brain! A very shy animal, the tarsier uses its oversized eyes to target it’s prey, leaping at insects using it’s powerful hind legs. Don’t be fooled by the cuddly look of this creature, they have also been known to eat lizards, bats, snakes and even birds!

The use of it’s bright red lips is not certain however it may play a part in catching it’s prey as it uses a small light emitting lure on the top of it’s head to attract small fish towards its mouth.
