The Circle of Life made some cool weird shit…

Let’s face it, humans are boring. Sure we may be the dominating species on the planet but we are also in many ways just not that interesting. The world is full of exciting animals in the world, some that behave in peculiar ways and some that just look so strange that it basically looks like something that came out of James Cameron’s Avatar.  This week, join Tuong La and Faux Wild Life Experts Axandre Lemours, Catherine Ballachey, and Seth Gerry as they get their Zoology on and rank Top 5 Interesting Animals You’ve Never Heard About.

Ground Rules

  • Maybe YOU have heard of these animals before but we, for the most part, have not! (ie everyone has HEARD of a Narwhal before)
  • Nominations are coming from the Kingdom Animalia (does not include plants and fungi but does include fish and bugs)
  • Real Animals not Fictional
  • Animals that have “interesting” qualities are stronger nominations
  • We understand that there are THOUSANDS of interesting animals out there and even if with the same group could have come up with a different list. Thus, the ordering and ranking of this list is extremely arbitrary but it’s an episode of Ranked so that’s what we do!

*Spoilers* Below is our Top 5 list from this episode as well as our own personal unordered  lists.

Group Top 5

5. Maratus Sceletus (aka Sparklemuffin)

4. Olm (Proteus Anguinus)

“I was saying Boo-urns”

Ah The Simpsons. A show which is well regarded as one of the best TV shows of all time purely based on it’s early seasons. While the show is still ongoing and has just completed its 31’st season, the magic of this beloved animated family started to wane somewhere after the first third of it’s total run. That said, at it’s best, The Simpsons in it’s prime has some of the snappiest/most hilarious dialogue, phenomenal visual gags, and the most heartwarming moments in TV history. This week join Tuong La and Attractive Shelbyville Cousins Matt Barrow, Taylor Fleming, and Samantha Leggatt as they ‘Do the Bartman’ while ranking Top 5 Simpsons Episodes!
