1. Jellyfish immortal

This jellyfish starts its life as a small spot that is born freely, call plánula, which becomes a colony of polyps, and then, in a jellyfish. If it is attacked, is exposed to environmental stress, or simply gets sick, or grows old, you can return to the stage polyp, forming a new colony of polyps, which makes it immortal.

2. Rat-mole nude

The skin of these rodents do not have the common substance in mammals responsible for sending pain signals to the central nervous system. As a result, naked mole rats do not feel pain. This rat is also known for its extremely high resistance to cancer.

3. The tardigrades

These small animals are considered as creatures more hard of nature, as it is almost impossible to kill them. Can withstand extreme conditions: temperatures from -272 up to 150 degrees celsius and pressure of up to 40,000 kilopascals. This radiation is extremely high, especially in their natural environment. Can live without food or water for more than 30 years.

4. Frog Furry

This frog can break its own bones to grow claws, which technically are not true because they are made of bone, not keratin. Normally, each claw rests on the inside of the fingers. But if the frog is stressed or feels attacked, you can take their claws as if they were knives through the skin, breaking bones. Just like Wolverine!

5. Mantis Shrimp

This shrimp has a weapon very serious: powerful claws similar to hammers, which are not only extremely sharp, but also can reach a speed of 53 miles per hour from its starting point. The scientists have to keep them in cages very thick plastic, because the larger species are able to pass through an aquarium glass.

6. Pulpo mimo

The octopus mimo or impersonator can impersonate other species of their habitat. They are able to not only change the color and texture of their skin to blend in with its environment, but also can mimic the behavior and the shape of various objects and animals.

The platypus have a sixth sense (electrolocalización) that allows them to perceive electrical signals. They are able to detect and locate different levels and movements of an electric field and avoid your source, as for example, those who come from a shark. Then, simply swim before being discovered.

8. Beetle leaf (Criocerinae)

The larvae of this insect found the way more rude to defend themselves: are covered with their own excrement to avoid being eaten. Too much for a superpower.

9. Flea

Their legs are perfect for jumping. A flea can jump up to 18 inches in height and up to 33 in length, which makes it the best jumper olympic of all the known animals in relation to their body size.

10. The lyrebirds (Menura)

Some birds are known because they’re able to mimic various sounds, but this in particular you can copy almost any: chainsaws, fire alarms, camera shutters, or even trains. A replacement great for a parrot talking!

Bonus. Cordyceps, the fungus that becomes a zombie

This fungus has the ability most bizarre of all. It can grow inside the bodies of other insects. Its spores attack to an insect (a caterpillar, a spider or an ant), replacing the host tissue by the you and then throw out roots which grow out of the body. At that time, the tissue of the insect is completely overwhelmed by the fungus. In other words, it is not an ant, but a cordyceps in the form of an ant. As a revelation of alien.
