Top 10 "badass" creatures



10. Flying Serpent

Although the association of the snake with the action of the flight seems absurd and paradoxical, the flying snake is a reality. Chrysopelea, known as the "flying snake", lives in Southeast Asia. This is venomous, but not enough to kill a man. But what makes him badass is his ability to jump from tree to tree, flying through the air. When it is in a tree, the flying snake runs to the top of a branch, places its body in the shape of the letter "J" and leans forward to control the level of inclination desired for "flight" and for landing. Once in the air, the snake sucks his stomach by transforming his body into a kind of conical wing. Although they do not have limbs, they fly better than flying saucers or other "sail" animals, being able to navigate distantly and 100 meters from a single "flight."

9. Collar shark

Chlamydoselachus anguineus, known as collar shark, is a cartalagian fish that lives in the eastern Atlantic Ocean, the southwestern Indian Ocean and the western and eastern Pacific Ocean. At first glance, this animal looks more like a shark than a shark. The name of the collar shark comes from the six gills of neck gills, which give the impression of a collar. At maturity, the male reaches 1 m in length, while the female is larger, reaching 1.5 m. The collar shark lives at a depth of up to 1280 m and feeds with cephalopods. Sometimes, collar shark is mentioned as a living fossil, largely due to the fact that the species has changed very little from prehistoric times to the present.

8. The Komodo Dragon

The Komodo Dragon is a large reptile found in the Indonesian islands of Komodo, Rinca, Flores, Gili Motang and Padar. The Komodo Dragon is the largest lizard in the world, reaching 3 meters in length and 70 kg in weight. Due to its size, this lizard dominates the ecosystem in which it lives. At the entrance to the reservation on the island of Komodo there is the following announcement: "Dangerous area - The Komodo Dragon. Keep silent". You would think that this sign is put in order not to disturb or scare the lizards, but it is actually not to attract them. Because of its size and venom, the Komodo dragon is considered dangerous. It is known for attacking people, although in the last 40 years it has made only five victims. Its venom is very toxic: it prevents blood clotting, lowers blood pressure, paralyzes muscles and induces hypothermia, leading to shock and loss of knowledge. Although it seems to be moving slowly and unintentionally, the Komodo dragon can run faster than a dog. Like any reptile, it uses its bifurcated tongue to detect the prey, and its main weapon, in addition to venom, is the sharp crooks, the strong jaws and the tail. Perhaps the most interesting and "badass" thing about the Komodo dragon is that females can lay eggs that can clog without being fertilized by a male. This process is called partogenesis.

7. Giant African snail

The giant African snail is the largest snail species on the planet, its shell rising to 30 cm long and 15 cm in diameter. It originates in the tropical forests of Ghana and has no natural enemy. This, along with the fact that each snail can deposit around 1,200 eggs per year, makes their population a problem. Scientists have estimated that a single pair can give rise to a colony of up to 10 billion individuals during their 5-7 year life. This is a problem because this snail has an incredible appetite for any plant or fruit, and more so, it does not come to the sides of the paint and wall plaster! Why is this snail "badass"? Because people use flame throwers to exterminate him, because his possession is illegal in the US and because he drinks beer! Yes, this snail drinks beer, the yeast stimulates its growth process.

6. Titan beetle

Titanus giganteus, or Titan beetle, is the largest bugle and one of the largest insects in the world, with adults reaching up to 18 cm in length. Scientists say this is one of the most mysterious creatures in the animal world. It lives in the depths of tropical forests in South America and ventures outside of normal habitat only during mating. Until now, no larvae have been found in this animal, but judging by the size of the holes found in the trees, experts believe the larva can be about 30 cm long and 5 cm in diameter. The larva fed for decades with rotting wood. The titanium beetle has a very strong jaw, being able to break into two a wooden pencil. Fortunately, these do not pose a danger to humans. Contrary to its size, this giant of the insect world can fly, but not directly from the ground, but plunging from the branches of the trees. And to be "badass" with acts in the right, in his adult life this beetle never feeds, but consumes the reserves in the larval stage.

5. The huge centipede

The Giant Amazonian centipede is the largest representative of the Scolopendra genus, the adult often exceeding 30 cm. It lives in northern and western South America, but also in Trinidad and Tobago, Jamaica and the Virgin Islands. The body of the huge centipede consists of 21-23 red or brown segments, with as many pairs of legs. This insect is carnivorous, feeding on lizards, frogs, small birds, mice, tarantulas and even bats, which they can catch from flying. This diet is possible due to strong venom. The giant centipede can easily hurt a man, causing swelling, fever and weakness. Even if its bite is extremely painful, it is unlikely to be fatal to man.

4. Miriapodul-dragon

This tremendous creature was discovered (barely) in 2007 by a group of researchers in Thailand. Desmoxytes purple is a pinkish myriapod which ... spits cyanide! Thus, just about any bird or predator who is "approaching" will be part of the shock of life or even death. At maturity, this pink miriapod reaches a length of 3 cm. Due to the ability to create cyanide, myriapod-dragon smells like almonds.

3. Shrimp-nuggets

Despite the name, the shrimp is not a shrimp, nor a nun, but has been named for the simple reason that it resembles both creatures. He is armed with powerful pliers to split an adult's finger and is very intelligent. He is a monogamous creature and often interacts with his "neighbors". Noodle shrimp has the best view of the animal world. It is "equipped" with 16 photoreceptors, compared to 4, compared to man. But the thing that really makes him "badass" is the force with which he can strike with pliers. Scientists have estimated the acceleration of the shot is equal to that of a 22-caliber bullet, which can easily break the windows of an aquarium.

2. Calm Humboldt

This marine creature was baptized according to the region where it lives, the eastern Pacific Ocean Humbolt area. The Humboldt squid is a large predator (it can reach 2 m long) that hunts in groups of up to 1200 individuals at depths of 200-700 meters. Calmings communicate with each other in a stunning way: rapid color change. Scientists believe they are very intelligent, the communication system used is very complex. The Humboldt squid has 10 tentacles, each of which is covered with suction cups on the edge of which sharp "teeth" are arranged. Tentacles are used to catch the prey and to swim, usually with all 10 stretched tentacles, giving the calf a conical appearance. When it reaches the optimal distance from the prey, it catches it with 8 tentacles, and with the other two it pulls it towards a parrot-like beak, which can easily break a man's flesh. Calm Humboldt is known for his aggression towards people, making numerous victims so far.

1. Immortal jelly

Turritopsis nutricula is the first in this top for the simple fact that it is immortal! And I do not use a figure of style, but this jellyfish is immortal. Once she reaches sexual maturity she is able to reverse her aging process and become a polyp. It is the only animal on earth that has the ability to reverse the cycle of life and is biologically immortal, because this process, called transdifferentiation, can continue to infinity. The immortal jelly is a real source of inspiration for scientists. They seek ways to make stem cells use the same transdifferentiation process to renew damaged or dead tissue.
