These animals are so extreme, you would think that they are Photoshopped fakes. Actually, one of them is a fake, but the rest are real.

Some of the animals look like they do because they had to physically adapt to their surroundings in order to survive. That said, doesn’t the baby platypus looks like an alien?

The North American Star-Nosed Mole, for example, is blind and has 22 worm-like and independently movable tentacles growing out of its nose. It’s thought that they can smell underwater using these tentacles.

The other animals featured include an Axolotl, Dumbo Octopus, Nar Whale, Blobfish, Yetti Crab and Long-eared Jerboa. Stats for Terrestrial Aliens Trending: Older & Buzzing
