The Coolest Animals That Have the Most Unusual Abilities

List Criteria: Vote up the animal that has the most unusual ability.

List of animals that have the most unusual, unique abilities. Animals have evolved in the smartest and strangest ways. This list ranks the craziest, most bizarre adaptations of all time. The animals on this list take evolutionary traits to a whole new level with intense defense mechanisms to avoid becoming prey. The result is this page's compilation of Mother Nature's freakiest inhabitants, courtesy of their unusual evolutionary qualities.
 
Many on the list of crazy animal adaptations have outrageous tools to hide from predators. Cuttlefish and leaf bugs, for instance, are absolutely unparalleled when it comes to camouflage and mimicry, while many young white-tailed deer essentially pretend to die in order to dissuade hungry killers. Others go a bit more extreme to piss off their enemies, such as Northern Fulmars, who vomit a disgusting liquid, and Pistol Shrimp, whose claw snaps and ignites a collapsing bubble of epic proportions. Other wacky adaptations found in animals range from the mere existence of an electric eel, as well as hooded seals who inflate a pink balloon from their noses to attract a mate.

    When a predator approaches one of these fawns, their heart rate is programmed to drop so low that they enter a state of tonic immobility. The result is a fawn that looks like a dead corpse, which, coupled with its involuntary peeing and pooping that accompanies the heart rate drop, will look pretty unappealing, even to a hungry animal.
