Borneo Frog
Borneo Frog
Found in Indonesia, this rare frog has no lungs. Through millions of years of evolution, the Borneo frog has adapted its body to survive in the fast moving cold river water of the rainforest by breathing solely through its skin.
Pistol Shrimp
Pistol Shrimp
A unique claw plays a significant role in this shrimp's defense. The claw has a "hammer" part that moves backwards into a right angle then snaps forward hitting the other part of the claw. This creates a powerful wave of bubbles capable of breaking glass.
Mimic Octopus
Mimic Octopus
This sea creatures best defense? Blending in. The Thaumoctopus mimicus, a species of octupus, can change not only its color, but its shape as well.
Leopard Gecko
Leopard Gecko
The leopard gecko may be a small reptile that doesn't seem threatening, but its ability to detach and shed part of its tail really comes in handy. This proves to be a distraction to the predator as the tail will continue to move after self-amputation.
Opossum
Opossum
This marsupial survives by pretending not to survive. Playing dead and emitting an odor that resembles a deceased animal is the opossums greatest defense. After all, who wants to go near a smelly dead rotted animal?
Wood Frog
Wood Frog
One of the few frogs found in Alaska, the wood frog goes into hibernation for 2-3 months to survive the harsh climate. While in hibernation, as much as 65% of the water in their body turns to ice.
Hippo
Hippo
Living out in the hot sun everyday requires some sort of protection. Hippos have the ability to sweat out a liquid that resembles blood. Rest assured, it's not blood, just a pigmented liquid that acts as sunscreen and a topical antibiotic.
Clown Fish
Clown Fish
"Finding Nemo" may have made these fish look cute and cuddly but in fact they come equipped with a retractable spine that runs between their eyes and mouth. This is used as a stabbing defense for the many predators of the ocean. Who's laughing now?
Diving Bell Spider
Diving Bell Spider
The only known spider to live completely underwater, it forms air pockets that it lives, breeds, preys and eats in. The spider utilizes the hairs on its legs to trap air bubbles and continuously breath underwater.
Texas Horned Lizard
Texas Horned Lizard
What's more distracting then squirting blood? This lizard has blood-filled sinuses which it can make hemorrhage, squirting blood from its eye sockets in self-defense.
Hairy Frog
Hairy Frog
One might defend themselves against broken bones, but not this frog. It can break its own bones to produce talons that protrude from its toe pads and thus strike the predator.
Electric Eel
Electric Eel
Hunting, surviving and communicating are no big thing when your backed by 500 volts! The ions and electrical makeup of the eel resemble that of a battery. The electric eel can produce shocks repeatedly over an hour period before tiring out.
Hagfish
Hagfish
This eel-like fish secrets a slimy substance when it detects danger. The slime allows the fish to swell. It then twists itself in a knot, allowing the fish to slip through the jaws of its predator.
Cicadas
Cicadas
Cicadas seem like they should've died out a long time ago. They're poor fliers, don't fight, and almost every creature preys on them. However, they've survived the test of time through a very bizarre strategy. Cicadas of the genus Magicicada appear in huge swarms periodically, which eventually satiates their predators and leaves most of them alive.
Termites
Termites
A species of termites in French Guiana are able to turn their death into the death of the predator as well. As the termites get older, they become equipped with sacs filled with toxic crystals produced by the glands in their abdomen. When under attack, these termites can blow themselves up and douse the predator in the toxic liquid.
