Be Amazed at these Top 20 Animals you’ll never see captivity! Indri and the blue whale – There’s a stack of reasons why you won’t find a blue whale in captivity, the obvious one being it’s unethical. pink fairy armadillo – blob-fish – In 2013, this extremely rare deep-sea creature was voted the ugliest animal in the world, however it only looks like a blob out of water. Dumbo octopus – This unusual specimen got its name because of hypnotically flapping its ear-like fins to propel themselves, similar to Disney’s infamous Dumbo. Pigbutt worm – Fangtooth – Fangtooth’s look like something from a horror movie with their disproportionately large, fang-like teeth yet are completely harmless to humans. giraffe weevil – This unique insect gets its name for its enormously long neck, often used to fight for the opportunity to mate with a female. Saola – Javan Rhino – The javan rhino has had nothing but bad luck, the most threatened of the five rhino species, their numbers have been dwindling for years. Northern Sportive lemur – This species of Lemur is declining dramatically in population because of habit loss from deforestation and illegal hunting. Billfishes – Billfish is a collective term to categorize fish with a long, bony, spear-shaped bill or snout. Swallow’s – These birds are highly adapted to aerial feeding; the only time they aren’t in the air is when they’re mating or sleeping, just like humans. Kakapo – The Kakapo shares a lot of similarities with the extinct dodo, a small flightless bird often hunted by either humans or other predators. Giant and colossal squid – Deep sea animals such as the giant and colossal squid are unable to stay in captivity for a number of reasons.

Mountain gorilla’s – If you’ve ever seen the award-winning movie “gorillas in the mist” then you’re probably accustomed to the plight of mountain gorillas. Narwhale – Narwhales are like the unicorns of the sea with a huge protruding tusk coming out of their head. Oarfish – The oarfish is the longest bony fish in the deep ocean but regardless of its size, we don’t know a great deal about them. Platypus – The platypus is one of the weirdest animals in existence; a semi-aquatic mammal that lays eggs and has a poisonous spur on its hind foot. Great white shark – Although it would be an amazing spectacle in an aquarium, the great white shark just can’t flourish in a tank.
