300+ Wierdest Animals of 21st Century

Topify List provide a list of strange animals, top animals you might probably not aware of before. A compendium list of top weird animals everyone should know, and every zoo should consider adding to their animal possession.


We'd previously listed 50 sort of amphibians here, about 75 sort of Reptiles some 200+ mammalian animals, while we tried to see to some 200+ types of birds here. If that wasn't enough, Topify did as much to get you familiar with 199 Dog Breeds you probably don't know if their existence.
Traditionally, scientists have classified life on earth into five different kingdoms based primarily on shared characteristics. Ever since, it has undergone many modifications. This classification or sorting is hierarchical, starting with the kingdom level, followed by phylum, class, order, family, genus, and species. In fact, organisms are named by a two-word system, the genus followed by the specific epithet, which together give the species’ scientific name. For example, the European honeybee’s scientific name is Apis (genus) mellifera (specific epithet).
While on a "vox-pop" for this article, we discovered that most people in our society, even a great number of elites were only aware of "domestic animals" and a few of "wild animals" which is glaring and safe to conclude that greater percentage of animals in the wilderness, fishes in gigantic seas and oceans, and so on are not known. However, all animals they could name are:

  • Monkey
  • Goat
  • Cockroach
  • Lion
  • Lizard
  • Dog
  • Bear
  • Horse
  • Rabbit
  • Antelope
  • Wall Gecko
  • Fish
  • Crocodile
  • Buffalo
  • Elephant and sort of

  • The scientists who study animals are known as zoologists, and these are people who unravel the mysteries of the animal kingdom. Scientists, by their very nature, have an urge to categorize and order the things they study, and zoologists are no exception. Ross Piper (2007) in his book Extraordinary Animals: An Encyclopedia of Curious and Unusual Animals confirms that "All animal life may be divided into 38 different categories, or phyla. Each phylum contains animals that in one way or another are very similar, and they may be grouped by shared physical characteristics or genetic similarities. Animals are continually being shifted within and between these phyla as scientists understand more about DNA and genetics. It has to be remembered that these phyla are a construct of the human mind and are merely an abstraction that allows us to make sense of the natural world. The number of species within these phyla is a huge bone of contention. Estimates range from 1.5 million to 100 million, but we may never know the true number."
    Anyway, regardless of the human need to categorize and identify things, it goes without saying that animals are a source of intense interest for a large percentage of the population. Perhaps this stems from the more primitive days of the human race when we lived in much greater harmony with nature. Before the days of agriculture and even civilization, our forebears would not have lasted long without a thorough understanding of the animals that shared their environment— which species they could use for food and which species they should avoid.
    Today, most people’s interest in animals begins in childhood with the creatures found in a typical backyard, inevitably, the ones lovingly described as creepy-crawlies—the insects and their relatives. These animals are easy to find and easy to keep in glass jars. This fascination with bugs grows, and before long, you find yourself reading about other animals, some of which you will probably never see but whose origins, diversity, and astonishing lives amaze you.
    Now back to subject on course, with the number of available animals around, counting based on classification or whatever, the vertebrates and invertebrates; reptiles, amphibian, mammals (small or large); fishes, creepy-crawlies, lobster and shrimps. Below is the careful selection of top animals you are not aware of which are existing.
