Have you ever seen creatures with a strange mix of colors? There are many unique and awesome looking critters in this world and we have prepared a list of just some of them. From changing the gender, colors and rare singing to many other interesting facts, we hope you’re going to enjoy reading this.
This remarkable fish has the power to change its colors and to switch from a male to female. The phenomenon called pajamas, that these fish have, is a possibility that allows them to envelop themselves in a transparent cocoon made of mucous, hidden from an organ on their head. The cocoon hides their scents and defends them from nocturnal predators. So, it not only that they are breathtaking, they also have some superpowers like these.

Famous evening singers belong to the family of Grasshopper. The males have song-producing organs that are located on their front wings. Females respond to their noisy singing, which supposedly sounds like “Katy did, Katy did not,” hence the name. The song serves a function in courtship, and they do that only in summer.

This breed is called Ayam Cemani and his origin is from Java in Sumatra and from Madura Island in Indonesia. There are many kinds of black roosters and chicken but this one is the “blackest”.

Amazon River pink river-dolphins
If you ever thought that dolphins live only in the sea, you are wrong. There are five river-dolphin species and the pink dolphin is one of them. It got the name from the color that it gets when it gets old. When they are young, all dolphins have the shiny silver-grey color of their “skin” and later it gets pink. It lives in the Amazon River and it is smaller than sea dolphins. Not only they are special by their skin color but they are also the smartest of all dolphins. Their brain capacity is 40% (even bigger than humans’ – we use only 10%).
