Their wings can span over seven feet in width, carrying these 20-plus pound birds over the rainforests of Central and South America, where they hunt down large mammals like sloths and monkeys.

3. Coatimundi A bizarre sight in most of the United States, the coatimundi is a common species in Central and South America that can occasionally be seen in the American Southwest. There, it takes on the roll of the raccoon in the food chain, pic.twitter.com/tiVkZkpEmN

scavenging for fruits, lizards, rodents and eggs — as well as raiding the occasional trash can. You can find coatimundis from Uruguay to Texas, but be warned — though they might look cute and cuddly, coatimundis reportedly make terrible domestic pets.

That stork’s exhibit now features a roof above the visitor viewing platform after a jabiru stork once tried to stab unsuspecting patrons with its 14-inch-long bill. Jabiru storks are native to Central & South America, where they typically feed on small mammals, fish & amphibians

the wild population of axolotl is thought to have dwindled to just a few individuals due to habitat loss. Axolotl can grow to lengths of 18 inches, and they are characterized by a unique set of external gills along with the ability to completely regrow lost limbs.

6. Naked Mole Rat Naked mole rats are a common sight in East Africa, where they burrow into the dry grasslands of Ethiopia, Somalia and Kenya. The naked mole rat has baffled scientists for decades thanks to a series of unusual biological traits. pic.twitter.com/YjER2YMlHq

Naked mole rats are unusually long-lived for rodents; some have been documented at 32 years of age. They are also resistant to cancer and are capable of living in an environment with just a tiny amount of oxygen for hours on end. They are a common sight in zoos across America.

7. Pangolin Pangolins are the only known mammal with scales. Their habitat covers parts of Central and West Africa, India and Southeast Asia. When threatened by predators, pangolins roll up into a defensive ball, protected by their armor-like coating of keratin scales. pic.twitter.com/IHjop4vQqp

Sadly, these insectivores are one of the most illegally trafficked mammals in the world. Their scales are thought to have medicinal powers in parts of Asia, and though an international ban exists on their trade, the numbers of wild pangolin have dropped because of poaching.

8. Tasmanian Devil The Tasmanian devil is the largest carnivorous marsupial in the world. Though devils may resemble a small dog, these nocturnal animals carry their young in pouches and are more closely related to wallabies than canines. In recent years, pic.twitter.com/nZ8tDLOA6M

It's populations have plummeted in the wake of a naturally occurring cancer called Devil Facial Tumor Disease. However, caretakers at the Tasmanian Devil Unzoo— a wildlife sanctuary dedicated to rehabilitating devils & researching the disease— that they're adapting to fight back.

9. Echidna The echidna inhabits some of the same territory as the Tasmanian devil, though its range extends onto mainland Australia as well. Echidnas are one of only two mammals that lay eggs. Though they resemble a porcupine, pic.twitter.com/FNXQ0RfMZE

echidnas are actually a distant relative of the platypus, believed to have evolved 20 to 50 million years ago from an aquatic ancestor. Echidnas forage on the forest floor for ants and termites, using their long snouts to capture prey.

10. Southern Cassowary The only flightless bird native to Australia, the cassowary can grow to over six feet tall and weigh nearly 190 pounds.

caution should be exercised around them. They’ve earned a reputation as "the most dangerous bird in the world," thanks to razor-sharp talons that they will use to defend themselves against dogs and people who tread too closely. Cc: travelchannel Oct, 2019
