Forest Giant Owl Butterfly -- A group of South & Central America butterflies. The underside of the wings look nothing like the upper wings. The undersides are brown with markings somewhat resembling feathers, and there is a large prominent black spot with a bright yellow ring around it on each lower wing. These spots look like eyes. When the butterfly is threatened, it assumes an upside down pose displaying eyespots. This startles a predator into thinking it is actually a large predatory owl.

Sea Butterfly Limacina helicina, the sea butterfly, is a tiny mollusk that lives inside a dark shell and uses its "ears" as wings. Like its predator, the sea angel, Limacina has evolved wings in place of the normal mollusk foot. Unlike the sea angel, though, Limacina hunts with a big ball of secreted mucous, which it uses to catch tiny arthropods, bacteria and algae. (The Sea of Japan, Russia/Flickr)

Indian Leaf Butterfly - the interior wings of this Asian butterfly are brilliant sapphire shades with bright orange. The dull outer portion of the wings enable the butterfly to camouflage itself amid dead leaves. When threatened, it folds its wings tightly together to give predators the impression of a simple leaf.

Polish Frizzle Bantam: The reason that these birds look like big puffballs is due to the presence of a mutated gene that makes their feathers curl. Where normal chickens have feathers that rest flat against their bodies, frizzles, with the effect of the F gene (frizzling), makes the feathers actually curl or spiral, lifting the feathers up and away from the body.

Kagu A rare New Zealand bird, not much is known about the enigmatic Kagu. It is flightless, though its wings are large; it is a forest-dweller, though its markings are oddly light in color. Very few remain and scientists know little about its preferences and habits. We do know that it possesses “nasal corns” unlike any other bird. For reasons unknown, the kagu also has one-third the red blood count of other birds. Scientists have had a difficult time classifying ...
