Strange looking animals have always fascinated us. Although it is politically correct to avoid starring a unique people, we still do sometimes. For me, if I see someone unusual I wonder if their personality is weird as well and, therefore, WANT to talk with them. Heck, I've seen human 6 month old baby's who looked like they were alien creatures, and very old grandpa's who were definitely from another planet. Their differences make them so interesting sometimes. Bazarre looking animals make we wonder about their character too, so let's look and wonder at these amazing entities.
I'm just trying to create curiosity, not satisfy it. If you want to know facts, you'll have to search the web.
