    This heart-warming animal odd couple shows that love truly is blind! A blind boxer named Baks got a whole new lease on life thanks to a goose named Buttons. The goose leads Baks around everywhere either by hanging onto him with her neck, or by honking to tell him which way to go.

    Aye Aye. Arguably the weirdest primate around, the aye-aye has huge bat-like ears, crazy yellow eyes and, generally speaking, would not look out of place in a Gremlins remake. The aye aye is found in Madagascar and is greatly endangered due to habitat destruction; and the fact that people in that country are not very fond of the creature, for they consider it to be a bringer of disgrace.

    The Babirusa! Photo # 1 of 2. This hairless, prehistoric-looking member of the pig family is found in Indonesia. Some scientists believe it may be more closely related to the Hippopotamus. Only males sport these impressive, wildly bizarre tusks. The ones protruding from the top of the snout are actually his upper canines, which grow UP rather than DOWN, penetrating through the skin, curling back towards the head, & in some cases, penetrating the skull a SECOND TIME!

    Tree-Kangaroos are macropods (Marsupials including kangaroos and wallabees) found in New Guinea, Queensland and nearby islands who have adapted to spending most of their lives in trees with stronger forelimbs and longer tails than their earth bound relatives and are able to leap 30m from one tree to another and climb by sliding their forearms while being propelled upwards by their hind legs. They are slow and clumsy on the ground. They weigh up to 30lbs.

    The maned wolf is not closely related to any other living canid. It is not a fox, wolf, coyote, dog, or jackal, but it is a distinct canid.
