Have you ever wondered why animals do what they do? Well, wonder no more.

These pets and their owners need to reevaluate their life choices.
Illusions or identity crisis? You decide.
So weird… So cute… So scary…
WTF Evolution chronicles evolution’s more improbable creations.
Baby, they were born this way.
Metamorphosis? Sounds like witchcraft to me.
Alien? Creature from a sci-fi flick? Nope these are just some citizens of planet Earth.
These species might be lesser-known but they are definitely not lesser-cute! From dik-diks to echidna puggles, learn to love all these baby weirdos!
We’re not saying it’s an alien…. But it’s an alien.
Allow me to introduce the sweetest li’l secret on this fine earth: the NUMBAT. These endangered little marsupials are Australian, adorable, useful (they eat as many as 20,000 termites per day!), and they are also known as Walpurti. Walpurti!
I’m not sure if this is hilarious or terrifying.
You may be familiar with these animals, but maybe not their range of colors. No need get your eyes checked. Nature’s just messing with you.
There is only one rule: reach the end of this post without laughing.

I have been puzzling over this animal oddity all afternoon. Is this a turtle displaced from its shell, or has a snake somehow inserted itself into a turtle, or did I miss a really crucial biology class at some point? I am opening this one up to the audience; please inform. View Image ›
A brightly-coloured fish which bounces along the seabed has been hailed as a new species by scientists, who have dubbed it “psychedelica”. View Image ›
Whatever this creature is, it may or may not be crossing a road in your vicinity. Be alert. View Image ›
Who would have thought it was possible? A real live spider that’s actually cute. To be fair, it’s still scary as all hell and probably full of evil intentions, but somehow it manages to be totally precious at the same time! I’m going to have some positively adorable nightmares tonight. View Image ›
A Japanese game/talk show that involves the careful placement of treats. It’s not cruelty because at the end there are snacks! This is a widely accepted definition of non-cruelty. In the case of the second woman and her Shiba Inu, there are 300 fluorescent Milkbones. Watch Video ›
