5 Most Rare Animals in the World (Second Part) | BlindLoop March 5, 2011 Animals Sharebar Our world once comprised of most naturally and unusually big creatures which are now found as ruins. But that was never all that our earth consisted of. Star Nose Moles Star nosed moles, bizarre and creepy in appearance are rare and found in lowland areas of eastern Canada and northeast regions of the United States. They have pink fleshy tentacles attached to their nose, which are like feelers around the nostrils, and have more than 25,000 minute sensory receptors. Star nose moles are known as introverted beings, such that do not interact with other members too. Proboscis Monkey Also famous as the Long-nosed Monkey, the Proboscis Monkey is an Old World monkey. The Proboscis Monkey is found in Borneo’s mangrove forests, swamps, and even the plain riparian forests. In spite of their talent of remaining in the shades of the tropical forests, these monkeys are so often found swimming, such that they are caught by fishermen and kept as pets or for their skins.

Inception Chair by Vivian Chiu Via Noho Next during #ICFF 2011, 10 chairs nested within a single chair by Vivian Chiu. "Each chair has hand cut grooves on the inside edges of its seat frame as well as notches in the seat back. These grooves range from 1/2" wide to 1/8" wide." "The mechanism works so that the pegs fit into the grooves of the chair one size bigger and slides into place so that the horizontal edge between the chair seat and back line up. The simple mechanism allows the chairs to be taken apart and put together with ease." Rare and very interesting photos Interesting and very rare photographs, you may never see. The first McDonald’s.

Sand Cat Kittens Start to Explore Earlier this month, Sweden’s Parken Zoo welcomed two new Sand Cat kittens. Small and stocky, the Sand Cat’s oversized ears help to dissipate heat and detect prey scurrying along the sand, much like the Fennec Fox. Watching the curious kittens exploring their enclosure can’t help but make you think of their domestic cousins. Photo Credits: Mats Ellting
