Ili Pika

Here are five interesting facts about them:
  1. These cute little guys grow to up to 20 cm long, have large ears and small brown spots on their little grey bodies.
  2. First discovered in 1983, no Ili pikas had been seen in over 20 years before they were rediscovered late in 2014 by a group of scientists in China.  They live in remote areas on cliff faces which is why they are so hard to find.
  3. They eat grasses, herbs and plants, and stockpile hay in their burrows to eat during the cold winter months.
  4. They are much quieter than other species of pikas, which means that they are unable to warn each other when predators are near.
  5. They are only found in a few areas of western China and it is estimated that there are only about 1,000 left in the wild, with the numbers dropping.  They are considered endangered and need help to stop them from becoming extinct.

Tasmanian devil

The Tasmanian devil (Sarcophilus harrisii) is a carnivorous marsupial of the family Dasyuridae. It was once native to mainland Australia and is now found in the wild only on the island state of Tasmania, including tiny east-coast Maria Island where there is a conservation project with disease-free animals.

The size of a small dog, the Tasmanian devil became the largest carnivorous marsupial in the world following the extinction of the thylacine in 1936. It is related to quolls and distantly related to the thylacine. It is characterised by its stocky and muscular build, black fur, pungent odour, extremely loud and disturbing screech, keen sense of smell, and ferocity when feeding. The Tasmanian devil's large head and neck allow it to generate among the strongest bites per unit body mass of any extant mammal land predator

The Polar Bear

... roam the Arctic ice sheets and swim in that region's coastal waters. They are very strong swimmers, and their large front paws, which they use to paddle, are slightly webbed. Some polar bears have been seen swimming hundreds of miles from land—though they probably cover most of that distance by floating on sheets of ice. These bear live in one of the planet's coldest environments and depend on a thick coat of insulated fur, which covers a warming layer of fat. Fur even grows on the bottom of their paws, which protects against cold surfaces and provides a good grip on ice. The bear's stark white coat provides camouflage in surrounding snow and ice. But under their fur, polar bears have black skin—the better to soak in the sun's warming rays. These Arctic giants are the masters of their environment and have no natural enemies.

The saltwater croc

Earth’s largest living crocodilian—and, some say, the animal most likely to eat a human—is the saltwater or estuarine crocodile. Average-size males reach 17 feet and 1,000 pounds, but specimens 23 feet long and weighing 2,200 pounds are not uncommon.

This Newly-Discovered Bat Has Fangs That Will Haunt Your Dreams


The long-toothed Pipistrelle

Introducing Hypsugo dolichodon, a rather horrific-looking new species of bat discovered in the rainforests of Vietnam and Lao PDR. Translated, the name means "the long-toothed pipistrelle," which judging from these photos seems like a perfectly appropriate moniker.

As reported in Mongabay, the bat was actually discovered back in 1997 by Charles M. Francis and Antonio Guillén, but because it's so similar to a closely related bat, the Chinese pipistrelle (Hypsugo pulveratus), it took 17 years to prove that it was in fact a distinct species. Dolichodon's fangs are not only longer, they're also bigger.
