Top 10 Weirdest Animal Behaviors!

Animals can be absolutely breathtaking, but sometimes, they’re just downright weird. Here are 10 of those times when animals just act weird.

1. Fainting Goats


1-24
These goats have muscles that freeze for 10 seconds when they panic, so they’re basically the opposite of clutch.


2. Pitcher Plants Provide an Echo Chamber for Bats


2-23
In return, the plant gets bat droppings which it uses as fertilizer. What a trade.


3. Zebra Finches Have Funny Reproductive Habits


3-20
If the female thinks her mate is ugly, she lays a slightly bigger egg, which has extra nutrients that she hopes help out the father’s bad genes.


4. Horned Lizards Spray Blood as a Defense Mechanism


4-10
That’s weird enough, but guess where they spray it? Out of their eyes.


5. Mole Rats Are Quite the Athletes


5-4
Naked, blind and living in darkness, the mole rat is somehow able to run as fast backwards as it can forwards, which is kind of impressive.
