The animal kingdom is truly a wacky and wonderful place, and we make more discoveries about it every single day.
Among the roughly 8.7 million animal species on this planet, there are thousands of animals that defy expectations at every turn with their amazing abilities, like this incredible dog that was able to detect his owner’s breast cancer.
In fact, some animal superpowers are downright magical, like this snow leopard that is able to use her camouflage to disappear completely into the background! Lots of animals have a variation on this ability, as an adaptive measure to make them both harder to hunt and better at catching their own prey unawared.
That said, not all camouflage is created equal. For every majestic creature melding seamlessly with the environment, there’s a goofy critter that just happens to look like something else entirely.
