The Funniest-Looking Animals in the World
The quokka is a small marsupial that is native to Australia. It is often called the "happiest animal in the world" because of its friendly and curious nature. Quokkas are found on Rottnest Island off the coast of Western Australia and in some areas of South Australia.
The proboscis monkey is a species of Old World monkey that is found in Indonesia. It is easily recognizable by its long, bulbous nose, which is thought to be an adaptation for making loud vocalizations. Proboscis monkeys are proficient swimmers and can often be seen swimming in rivers and mangrove forests.
The axolotl is an aquatic salamander that is found in lakes and canals in Mexico City. It can regenerate lost body parts, making it a popular scientific subject. Axolotls are brown or black, with spots or stripes on their bodies.
The aye-aye is a nocturnal primate found on Madagascar's island. It has large eyes and long fingers, which it uses to tap on trees to find insects to eat. Aye-ayes are also known for their distinctive calls, which sound like "ee-yee."
The okapi is a mammal native to the Democratic Republic of Congo in Central Africa. It looks like a cross between a zebra and an antelope and has been described as the "African unicorn." Okapis are shy creatures that live in tropical rainforests and avoid contact with humans whenever possible.
