What Animals Have SuperPowers?

Read of these amazing animal superpowers! You won’t believe what these animals are capable of! Hairy frogs that break their own bones to grow hair.

Hairy Frog
This frog breaks its own bones to grow claws. Also known as the “Horror Frog” or the “Wolverine Frog,” (with good reason), it is located in central Africa. Its name comes from the hair that grows on its sides. It’s actually not really hair but thin skin-like structures that protrude from its body that looks like hair.
But what makes this frog so amazing isn’t its hair. It’s its claws. Its claws are made of bone that it can project through its skin by breaking its toe bones. When the frogs feels threatened or under attack the Frog will push these broken bones out of its feet to produce claws.
As the bone pushes outward, a bone nodule closer to the outside of the foot adds a sharp point to the frogs’ bones making them look and act just like claws. And unlike all other animals with claws, the “Wolverine Frog’s” claws are not covered in a protective coating of keratin. These frogs are attacking with their actual bones. A frog with similar superpowers was also discovered recently in Japan. Known as the Otton Frog, it also conceals a retractable spike for fighting.
Scientists are not certain if the bones ever retract after they have broken through the skin but considering the “Wolverine” frog’s amazing ability, it’s likely that over time the bones recess back into the foot, until they are needed again.

Other Frog crazy behaviors:

The Mantis Shrimp
It might be tiny, but this little shrimp packs a massive punch. Even though they are only 4 inches long, they are one of the strongest animals in the world. The Mantis shrimp have clubs they use to punch and destroy their prey.

The shrimp has developed a complex muscular structure that actually winds up the shrimp’s punching arm like a spring. When the shrimp are ready to attack, it releases the spring-loaded club with the force of a shot. The punch accelerates over 50 mph with a force of over 330 pounds. That’s up to 2500 times the shrimp’s own weight. Scientists have to keep these shrimp in thick plastic tanks because their punch can easily smash the glass.
If a person could hit that hard, they could break steel. Besides the actual clubs, the force and speed the shrimp uses to attack create bubbles that are so strong that they act like a shockwave, stunning the prey first then knocking it down. In essence, a Mantis shrimp punch acts and feels like multiple hits, even though it’s just one stroke.
In order to punch that hard without breaking their clubs, mantis shrimp have a special shock absorbent core called a Bou ligand structure. This keeps small cracks from breaking completely and researchers are trying to imitate this structure to design thin, light materials.

The Immortal Jellyfish
Known as the Benjamin Button of the sea, these tiny jellyfish transform from an adult back into a baby and they can do it over and over again. They are barely visible to the human eye, with an adult jelly reaching an average of 4.5mm, about the size of your pinky nail (0.18 inches). What makes this animal so amazing, is the fact that it can live forever.
They can live and die per usual but if they sense some kind of crisis like starvation or physical injury, the immortal jellyfish can transform all of its existing cells into a younger state.
The jellyfish turns itself into a blob, then a polyp colony which is the first stage of jellyfish life. This colony can spawn hundreds of genetically identical jellyfish.
Because of their ability to change their cellular structure, scientists have been studying the tiny jellyfish in hopes of helping people who suffer from cellular disease. This continual cycle of regeneration or self-cloning is what makes the jellyfish, in essence, the only known animal known to live forever.

Relly nature is just amazing

12 Animals With The Weirdest Teeth

These animals will make you think twice about saying I’ve seen everyting there is to see about nature shows… o no… no no no sir! From majestic narwhals and their 8.5 foot tooth to terrifyingly cute penguins with scary mouths, here are 12 Animals With the Weirdest Teeth.

The Babirusa
Just like the narwhal that we just discussed, this creature’s tusks are actually its teeth that have managed to grow in the opposite direction and pierce the roof of their mouth. More specifically, its the upper canines that do the piercing while the lower ones grow sideways out of their mouths. The males use this bizarre evolutionary trait to their advantage when they fight other males during mating season and slash into each other’s flesh. The unfortunate part is that the babirusa has to file down it’s teeth, otherwise, they’ll end up growing right into its skull and proving to be fatal.

The Frilled Shark
Thank god this living nightmare lives in some pretty deep waters because you wouldn’t want to end up swimming near one of these things. Case and point, look at its needle-like teeth! It’s got rows upon rows of teeth that are in their own rows. This makes it harder for their prey to try and escape as they get trapped and have their flesh torn. These sharks mostly feed on different species of cephalopods such as squids and they use their extremely flexible jaws that are long enough to swallow prey that’s larger than them whole. Truly scary.

The Lamprey
Out of the 38 species of lamprey that are known to exist, which seems like too many of these scary aliens, only 18 of them are known for being parasitic. These fish use the many rows of teeth that fill its mouth to cling onto their desired prey of choice and chomp onto a piece of tasty flesh from an unsuspecting source. Once the animal is latched on tightly, then they begin to use their tongue in order to lap up the nutrient-rich blood from its victim. Yeah, these things are basically underwater vampires. Avoid them at all costs.

The Hagfish
This animal is a type of marine fish that resembles more of a fish and is known for producing an insane amount of slime that it uses to suffocate the hungry predators that try to go after it. It’s perhaps less known for its smile that comes with two pairs of sharp teeth on each side. The hagfish is one of those animals such as the previously mentioned lamprey that is completely jawless. These animals don’t even need their teeth as they’re able to get the nutrients they require through their skin but they also feed on dying prey by eating them from the inside.

The Penguin
Thanks to films such as “Happy Feet” and “March of the Penguins,” the general public sees penguins as cute balls of fluff that live in the cold Arctic region. It turns out that the inside of a penguin’s mouth is very much the exact opposite of cute fluff ballness. Their mouths are entirely lined up with razor sharp teeth that are essential in helping a penguin feed. Since penguins eat their food alive and whole, their sharp teeth help keep down squirming fish and keep things moving smoothly. And yes, the following image that you see is real.

The Leatherback Sea Turtle
Sea turtles have quite the reputation for being such adorable and majestic creatures of the ocean but that’s because most people haven’t had the chance to look at their insides. The most frightening of these turtles happens to be the leatherback sea turtle. The inside of their mouths looks like a small forest of spines as pictured below in the following image. These aren’t technically teeth, as they’re rather called papillae, but they act just like teeth. The cartilaginous spikes help keep jellyfish moving down the turtle’s throat as they’re being swallowed and protects them from the jellyfish stings.
Before we reveal number one, let us know in the comments below which one of these animals you thought had the weirdest set of teeth and don’t forget to subscribe. And now…

The Crabeater Seal
As far as teeth go in the animal kingdom, there’s an exact reason on why we chose this animal as the number one spot. Just look at that unique pattern of teeth! It’s like nothing you’ve ever seen before. So why do these seals have such odd-looking chompers? Well, despite their name being crabeater seals, their diet is actually made up of 90 percent Antarctic krill and don’t actually feast on crabs because they live in such deep waters. The weird pattern of their teeth helps filter out the excess water when they take a bite and only the tasty krill is left.
