Frilled sharks are notorious for their odd dentition. Approximately 300, three-pointed teeth set into 27 rows fill the mouths of Frilled Sharks. Do the math and you’ll find that every Frilled Shark has about 1000 pointy hooks to grab onto its fishy prey. Primitive maybe, deadly definitely.

The Red Breasted Toucan (Ramphastos dicolorus) or Green-billed Toucan is fairly common in its range that includes the Atlantic forest of eastern and southern Brazil, eastern Paraguay and extreme northeastern Argentina. Its range is the southernmost of all toucans.  Toucans eat mostly fruit therefore filling an ecological niche in that they aid in the dispersal of seed. Additionally, they will prey on insects, small reptiles and raid nests of other birds in order to add necessary protein to…

The Aye-aye is a strepsirrhine native to Madagascar that combines rodent-like teeth with a long, thin middle finger to fill the same ecological niche as a woodpecker. It is the world's largest nocturnal primate, and is characterized by its unusual method of finding food; it taps on trees to find grubs, then gnaws holes in the wood and inserts its elongated middle finger to pull the grubs out.

The plateau pika is a smaller relative of the rabbit and occupies an almost identical ecological niche to the prairie dog in the U.S. Environmentalists call the pika a keystone species.

The White-tailed Eagle (Haliaeetus albicilla[2]) — also called the Sea Eagle, Erne (sometimes Ern), and White-tailed Sea-eagle — is a large bird of prey in the family Accipitridae which includes other raptors such as hawks, kites, and harriers. It is considered a close cousin of the Bald Eagle and occupies the same ecological niche, but in Eurasia.
