clothing the birthplace of this curly-haired Pig is Hungary where it was discovered in the mid 19th century due to the fleece covering this animal it resembles a sheep therefore its name the fleece can be black or red but these cuties are most commonly blond this is the last Pig in existence to boast such an amazing winter coat tragically it was nearly extinct by the 1990s when fewer than 200 pigs could be found in Hungary all because of their extra ordinarily tasty lard thankfully nowadays the future of mangu lista looks much brighter number 9 rhino Pittacus or golden snub-nosed monkey the name of this species is rock Solana and there is a story behind it it is believed that they recalled this way after the supposedly snub-nosed courtesan of Suleiman the Magnificent a 16th century Sultan of the Ottoman Empire another interesting thing is the difference between male and female monkeys with males being twice heavier than females and of a different color girls have darker or even black tones on their forehead and upper parts infants have such a light coat it may seem white in the sunlight number eight Emperor tamarin this guy looks like a real emperor or at least a wise old man with its fabulous mustache and indeed they were called like this because of the resemblance of their mustache to that of german emperor wilhelm ii the size of this cute little thing is only about 10 inches or 26 centimeters but their tale can be up to 16 inches or 40 centimetres long they live in groups of between 4 to 20 animals and often give birth to twins then other members of the family help to look after the babies they are not completely vegetarian besides flowers nectar and fruit tamarins can feast on frogs snails and even small birds number 7 Patagonian Mara if you are wondering if this animal is a cross between a kangaroo and a hare think again Patagonia Mara is the fourth largest rodent on our planet there are several interesting facts about them females often put offsprings into crashes for safety males help to guard their babies they grunt when they try to threaten and also they squeal like guinea pigs if you startle them these animals can leap up to 6 feet or 182 centimeters in the air what's your record jump as for their character well they can be quite flighty number six fluffy cow in fact there are several secrets surrounding these big plush toys first of all it's not a new breed all these lovely cows belong to the breeds already known the thing is they are looked after by special people whose work it is to wash dry and use products to style the animals so they look as fluffy as they do what is more it is necessary to maintain them daily and it will take months of regular grooming till they get this lovely look of kids toys it is done mostly for shows and it typically takes about two hours to bring them into form before a performance hair sprays are used to fix their fuzz and natural oils are applied to make their fur look shiny how much time do you spend in front of the mirror number five mark hoard goat if you see a creature which looks as if it's trying to catch an alien radio signal from space it's most likely a mark or goat they can grow as long as six feet or 180 centimeters from head to tail what is even more shocking is that their horns can grow up to 5.2 feet or 1.6 meters long but that's only true for males which use their horns for fighting during the mating season female horns grow only up to ten inches or 25 centimeters long they are strict vegans if we can say so they eat leaves grass fruit and flowers number four raccoon dog if you can't decide if you want to have a dog or a raccoon as a pet we have just the thing for you a raccoon dog despite having raccoon like markings on their fur they are not very closely related to the North American raccoon they're much closer relatives are domesticated dogs wolves and foxes raccoon dogs are monogamous which means they mate for life and a pair of them works together raising and bringing up their kids when the female is pregnant the partner brings food for her and flowers but nobody has seen it so it might not be true raccoon dogs are unique creatures they are the only mammals of the dog family which go into short periods of hibernation and what is even more amazing they choose to bed down in pairs and their voices are just so cute number three the blue footed boobie these charismatic birds are sure to catch your eye if you ever visit the Galapagos Islands they can look a bit clumsy and comical on land but they are excellent at flying and swimming the birds have funny and complicated mating rituals to attract a female males perform some dance with the elements of high-stepping stamping their feet and sky pointing raising their bill up into the air accompanied with high-pitched whistling if a female is impressed enough she may come up to the male touch him with her bill and join the dance and their blue feet have an actual scientific explanation it comes from the birds fish diet and indicates their healthy immune system and what about the colour of your feet number two the Malayan colugo these eyes probably see a lot and seem to find everything surprising it's the Malayan colugo also known as the flying lemur and both of these things are wrong it doesn't fly nor is it a lemur yeah this happens all the time the name-calling went wrong thing so why such a name colugo has a large gliding membrane like a flying squirrel and they can glide for long distances between trees standing far apart the paradox with these small animals which typically weigh between two and a half to four and a half pounds or one to two kilograms is that though they live in trees they are awkward climbers and not very strong hard life they must have poor things number one venezuelan poodle moth this moth was only discovered in 2009 and doesn't it look like a furry poodle mammals need hairs to keep their body heat but insects are cold-blooded and even if the poodle moth may look as if it lives in Antarctica with all this fur it in fact comes from Venezuela a tropical country its hairs don't serve for heating most insects have hairs for protection or smelling and sensing the environment perhaps it's true about the poodle moth as well but as it is a very new discovery not much is known about this insect yet so is it cuddly we can only guess but the chances are high that it's not as cuddly as you wish it were and here's our incredible bonus cloud antelope this species lives in the clouds that's why such a name it's bright blue fur is the reflection of cloudless blue skies in the area of its habitat and it's diet consists of sunrays and candies and do you believe it neither do we it's a fantastic toy made by
