There are so many species of animals on the planet that it’s hard to keep up with all of them. And new species of animals are being discovered every day. Some of these creatures are so rare, that none of them have ever been seen before.

As our world gets smaller with better technology, more strange and unusual creatures are found. With this in mind, we went out and put together a list of unreal creatures. So sit back and relax as we take a look at 10 animals you didn’t know existed.

1. Aye-aye - This strange looking creature lives in the forests of Madagascar. At first glance, many people wouldn't be able to tell what family this animal belongs to. It definitely has the characteristics of a rodent with its two large front teeth and big round sensitive ears, and some think it looks like some sort of gremlin.

2. The Lamprey – Ancient and ugly, the Lamprey is considered to be a living fossil because they have been around long before the dinosaurs, and with 360-million-year-old fossils looking remarkably like modern lampreys, they are said to be the oldest vertebrates alive in the world.

3. The Maned Wolf – One look at this creature will have you trying to decide if it’s a wolf or a fox. The surprising thing is that it is neither. So what is it? Genetic studies show that it is neither fox nor true wolf, but a distinct species. It is the only member of its genus, Chrysocyon.

4. Giant Girdled Lizards – Named after its relative size in the group of girdled lizards, it is the biggest species in the group. The genus, Smaug, is named after the legendary dragon of the same name in the novel ‘The Hobbit’ by J.R.R. Tolkien.

5. The Dugong – Also called ‘sea cows’ the Dugong is a large mammal that lives its entire life in the sea. The reason they are called sea cows is because of the large amounts of sea grass they eat. And if you’re trying to figure out what this creature is related to, you might be surprised to know that its more closely related to an Elephant than to other sea creatures, although their closest aquatic relative is the manatee.

6. Yeti Crab – This crab was only recently discovered in 2005 living in the icy cold waters of the Pacific Ocean near hydrothermal vents near Easter Island. The Yeti crab is a distant relative to the hermit crabs commonly seen lurking in tide pools. It gets it names from the feathery hairs or ‘setae’ that cover its arms.

7. Cantor’s Giant Softshell Turtle – This turtle is the only species that has such a flat appearance. Cantor's giant softshell turtle has a broad head and small eyes close to the tip of its snout, with their carapace being smooth and olive colored.

8. Gerenuk – The Gerenuk looks somewhat like a cross between a Giraffe and a Gazelle. It is characterized by its long, slender neck and limbs, the flat, wedge-like head and the large, round eyes. Their coat is of a short, fine, and glossy hair. They grow to be about 41 inches tall, and can weigh between 60 and 100 lbs. Quite small for this type of antelope.

9. Amazon River Dolphin - These dolphins are the largest river dolphin with adult males reaching lengths of up to 8 and a half feet long and sometimes weighing 350 to 400 lbs. Females are only slightly smaller than the males.

10. Sunda Colugo - The Sunda flying lemur is found throughout Southeast Asia in Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, and Singapore. Colugos are tree-dwelling mammals that can grow 14-16 inches in length and weigh from 2 to 4 lbs.
