10 Funniest Animals ...

By Melanie

Animals are funny. They do the funniest things too, but some of them are funnier than others – you know, funny looking. I love animals. Yes, if you know me, you would know how big of an animal fan I am. Below, I am going to give you 10 funniest animals to laugh at (or with)…

10 Owl

I love owls, but I always thought they were funny how they turn their neck around. Their wide eyes – they’re real alert, aren’t they? They’re really neat creatures!

9 Sun Bear

The sun bear is hilarious. They are primarily found in the Southeast Asia tropical rainforests. They are around four feet in length. They are small for a bear. They are often referred to as the dog bear because of how small they are. They weigh less than one hundred and forty five pounds. I think when they stick out the tongue, it looks funny!

8 Emperor Tamarin

Tell me you can’t look at one of these and laugh! The name that was given to them was first intended to be a joke. However, it stuck. What is funny about them? That long white mustache they have! It extends out to both sides past their shoulders.

7 Tapir

These are funny mammals! They are pig like in shape. The snout is what makes me laugh. There are four species of the tapir and all four are either vulnerable or endangered. Their closest relatives are horses and rhinoceroses.

6 The Star-Nosed Mole

This mole is found in the eastern parts of Canada and north-eastern parts of the United States. At the end of their snout, they have 22 pink, fleshy tentacles. Those are used to identify food by touch. However, it’s funny looking!

5 Pink Fairy Armadillo

They’re all ready with their armor! Oh, but if you touch them, you won’t laugh! They look all innocent, but trust me, they will rip you up. Nonetheless, they’re still funny creatures.

4 Axolotl

The larvae of this species do not go through metamorphosis. The adults remain gilled and aquatic. They go through a lot of research because of their ease of breeding, large embryos and the ability to regenerate most of their body parts. It is common to find them as pets. Tell me you can’t look at them without laughing!

3 Tarsier

Oh come on, how can you resist those big, beautiful eyes? You know you want to laugh! Look at the picture again! LOL! They have long eyes and big feet that are just hilarious.

2 The Frilled Lizard

I just had to include this one. I have always liked them. This is one lizard I have never had. The large, ruffly skin that is around their neck is funny. When the lizard is frightened, it looks funny. Oh and don’t forget how they run on their hind legs!

1 Shoebill

When I look at the Shoebill, I swear he seems smiling or laughing! The Shoebill is related to the storks. It gets the name from the big shoe-shaped bill that it has. It’s a large bird standing at four feet tall and 12.3 pounds. Across the wings, the bird is 7.7 feet.

While writing this blog posting, I couldn’t help but laugh at many of these animals. I found others, such as the blob, that I would like to add, but have completed the list of 10. Maybe I will continue in another posting, so look out for that. In the meantime, tell me some of the funny animals on your list!
