The Thylacine thingy was cute!!!!

(by the way, look at it`s stomach. It`s prob. starved, so no wonder it`s mad when a dumb human gets close enough to take a pic of it!)

Snakes can fly and shrimp can harness the power of the sun. How is it, again, that we are the dominant species on Earth?

"Dear humans,

How do you like THEM jet propulsive, poisonous, fanged, super sized, flying, apples?

-Sincerely, Nature."

Give us one week and we`ll find a way to hunt, kill, and eat those apples. We guarantee it.

Holy crap, I love this quote:

""The chief difference here being that, when you see a flying squirrel, you’re likely to say something along the lines of “aww, Flying Squirrel! Cuuuute!” Whereas sightings of the Chrysopelea are usually accompanied by cries of “what the drat?! Snakes can fly?! I quit life!”""

That was worth at least 3 lulz.

They should have included Moray eels! Moray eels have Pharyngeal jaws, which basically means they have a inner set of jaws, complete with teeth, inside their regular jaw. That`s right, just like the xenomorphs from the Aliens movies. The Moray eel takes a bit with his outer jaw, then his inner jaw grabs it, outer jaw lets go, inner jaw retracts pulling the fish down the gullet.

Giant salamander, well it looks weird, but not that scary.

Goblin Shark, nice extendable jaw, but since it is so small, not that scary. I f it was the size of a great white, i would never go in the ocean again.

Flying snakes? cool, but my 20ft long python is scarier.

The Pistol shrimp? That is freaking awesome.

The Tasmanian Tiger... we should totally bring that back, along with mammoths, neanderthals and dodos

I know it says that they went extinct, but my local zoo actually used to have a pair of the Tasmanian Tigers. I was around six years old, and went to the zoo to see them. Well, one of them yawned. I pissed myself.

I want one of those shrimp now, lol. I love how it knocked the other shrmip out, then just swooped out and grabbed it really quick. I can only imagine that it was screaming "MINE!" in pistol shrimp during.
(BTW, what was the shrimp species that could shoot blue-ish goo when frightened?)

Goblin Shark... That`s uhh... That`s some unholy sh*t riht there...

"The Chinese Giant Salamander, also known as the Hellbender Salamander..." They`re right, that IS a metal name, for a creature that puts metal to shame, lol.

“what the drat?! Snakes can fly?! I quit life!” I want one as a pet, now. It can glide further than a flying squirrel. That`s AWESOME!

And it does look like it`s having fun in the pictures, lol. Now I wanna see video.

"that shrimp can`t be real, i mean i could go for the sonic beam and everything but the temperature of the sun...? sounds like they found a way to create fusion on earth and finally solve all of our electricity problems. good bye expensive machines hello tiny shrimp"

Its true. The shripms claw really is that powerful. Its also the loudest noise in the ocean, damaging radar equipment and evn denting boats when theres a large group of them snapping to communicate and find a mate.

Radars cant hear anything on the other side of a swarm (school? group of shrimp?) of pistol shrimp.

The temperature of the sun. Right. If that`s true, then the next animal can detach it`s jaw a few inches.

poo MAN ._. Also, why don`t they call it the Ryu Shrimp? I mean, it`s obviously learned hado(u?)ken. (Hadouken? Hadoken. Hadouken? Hadouken. HADOKEN?)

Yup, nature really loves it doesn`t it?

I can see why we need drating weapons to survive.

Shrimps with lasers.
Flying snakes
Sharks, with the ability to shoot is jaw at you.
Tasmanian tiger, able to open its mouth 120 degrees.
A giant salamander which can stab you from a distance with its tongue.

The jaws of that marsupial thing were crazy, to bad its extinct. Ive heard of the pistol shrimp before, but that thing still kicks ass. I can also imagine those salamanders as pets, occasionally harpooning their owners. lol
