00:05 “Hey friends! I’m sure you all know what that is!
00:09 It’s a unicorn!
00:11 Sadly, Unicorns may not be real.
00:14 But there are some really weird animals in the real world that you may not know existed.
00:20 Well, then let’s find out.
00:22 Zoom in!
00:24 Mantis Shrimp is a colorful ocean creature.
00:28 Which is much deadlier than it looks!
00:30 The clubs on its arms can shoot out with the force of a gunshot!
00:36 The punch of this little one is so fast,..
00:39 ..it causes a bubble of light and heat when it hits.
00:43 Which is called Cavitation!
00:47 They can not only see color, but also UV and Polarised Light!
00:53 Furthermore, their eyes can even move separately from each other!
00:59 We may not have a super-man, but we certainly have a super-SHRIMP!
01:07 Also known as Water Bears, are even stronger!
01:11 Boil them, deep-freeze them, crush them, dry them out or blast them into space…
01:19 Tardigrades will survive it all and come back for more!
01:23 Tardigrades have been around for 500 Million years!
01:28 Even longer than the Dinosaurs!
01:33 Glaucus Atlanticus!
01:35 Wow! Isn’t it pretty?
01:38 This beautiful creature called Glaucus Atlanticus is a tricky ocean being.
01:44 That likes to go with the flow, literally.
01:48 It moves where the wind and the waves take it…
01:51 Which is why they can be found all over the world.
01:56 But don’t go on its looks, it carries a deadly poison in its limbs.
02:01 Which it steals from its prey, such as the Portuguese Man O War.
02:07 Its trickery doesn’t end there.
02:10 This Blue Sea Slug, floats on the water upside down to camouflage itself..
02:16 ..from predators both above and below.
02:20 This is because the colors on both its sides are different.
02:25 Even if they get flipped, they will flip back in order to camouflage themselves.
02:32 Pacu Fish!
02:34 This fish is known for its teeth.
02:36 Which look like none other than Human teeth!
02:40 But you don’t worry, because they usually eat plants.
02:45 And are mostly harmless to humans.
02:50 So what if there are no real unicorns on land?
02:54 There are Narwhales, also called Unicorns of the Sea!
02:59 That’s right!
03:00 Well, the males generally have a tusk.
03:03 Which is an enlarged tooth with up to 10 million nerve endings inside.
03:09 Oh, and the tusk can grow up to 10 feet long!
03:15 TRIVIA TIME!
03:17 Did you know that there are about 8.7 million species on Earth?
03:22 Out of which only 1-2 million species are animals!
03:28 The blue whale’s tongue weighs as much as an adult elephant.
03:34So friends, always be inquisitive and keep exploring.
03:39 Who knows you might discover a new animal!
03:43 On this note, this is me, Zooming out!
03:47 Tune in next time for more fun facts.
