So this week, the State University of New York’s International Institute for Species Exploration (like that isn’t a mouthful) announced the Top New Species of 2015. Now unfortunately, cannon ball-spitting dragons & pixies that sprinkle fairy-dust aren’t part of the list but these are pretty YOLOSWAG in their own way! Check it out.
#10. Phyllodesmium acanthorhinum
This is a brand new sea slug that’s just entered the school books. It’s bioluminescent which means that it emits light and really belongs at a rave party in Goa. Combine the lights with the ink blue ocean and you’ll feel like you’re trippin’ on some legit shit!
#9. Anzu wyliei
Imagine a repulsive lizard covered in feathers. Can you practically feel the creature crawling all over you? Anyway you don’t have to worry cuz’ this little critter’s extinct. Evolution 0 Humans 1.
#8. Balanophora coralliformis
If you look closely at this one, it almost looks like a bunch of hands rising from the grave. Creepy with a capital C!
#7. Cebrennus rechenbergi
Spiders have way too many legs to make them lovable. Now imagine that mess of hairy scary cartwheeling on your tabletop. Too many legs and the skill of a gymnast. That’s just too much power for one insect.
#6. Dendrogramma enigmatica
This thing that looks like the love child of a mushroom and a jellyfish is so gross that even scientists can’t name it!
