Today's prompt is Unusual Animals.

Iberian midwife toads -- A male carries his mate's fertilized eggs on his back. As a feminist, I approve.
Manatees -- They look unfinished.
Camels -- I didn't think they were particularly unusual until last month. That's when I learned camels evolved in the Canada's north 3.5 millions years ago.
Ringtail Lemurs -- My favourite animal species on the planet. They're ADORABLE looking.
Grant's Golden Moles -- They have no eyes, and are the number one reason Namibia is not a tourist hot spot. Or so I assume.
Hummingbirds -- One of my favourite things about our town is the abundance of Rufous hummingbirds. Here's a helpful hint for local readers: do not wear red hats in June or July while standing on ladders. The hummingbirds will dive bomb you!
Orangutans -- I get freaked out by all orangutans, especially male orangutans. It's those facial ridges.
Pikas -- Adorable. Even when you are back country camping and they wake you at dawn by chattering away.
Reinwardt's Flying Frogs -- Anxiety inducing thought: a moth or a bat caught in my hair. And -- as of now -- these things touching my scalp:
Narwhals -- The ugliest of all Unicorn Variants.
Capybaras -- Mutantly large guinea pigs.
Did I miss any?
