Globe in search of new life whetherhidden at the deepest darkest depths ofour oceans or scampering around in plainsight in one of our forests deserts orjungles these newfound animals havecreated a buzz in the animal biology

World what does it take to catch a newspecies how many more are out there allthis and more is about to be revealedcompared to some of the predatorslurking in our oceans dolphins areusually rather friendly playful

Creatures and just try looking at thisphoto of a mama and its path and not sayah but this dolphin if you can even callit that is a page right out of anentirely different book more often thanyou think a photo of a bizarre creature

Washed up on a beach makes its wayaround the internet in most cases ifit's something too terrifying or tooweird to be true it actually is andsomeone's probably created it onPhotoshop for just a bit of fun that was
