20 Strange Animals You Wouldn’t Want As Pets

Just because an animal looks ostentatious doesn’t mean it’s harmful. And, just because an animal looks cute and fluffy, doesn’t mean it’s ready to have a good time and play with the kids. From strange looking animals that can suck the life out of anything to those who appear to have been super-sized, here are 20 strange animals from around the globe that, for one reason or another, prove to be better from afar than up close and personal.

​The Leafy Sea Dragon

The Leafy Sea Dragon is a member of Syngnathidae family, which also includes seahorses. This animal is strange because it looks like a mythical dragon, although it has no teeth. In fact, their shape is the same as dragons from Chinese culture, just smaller, obviously.

Komondor Dog

Originally bred as a livestock guardian, a Komondor Dog can be your next pet, if you’re looking to shock your neighbors. It’s a descendant of Tibetan dogs that were brought into Hungary between the 9th and 14th century.

The Angora Rabbit

The Angora Rabbit looks like a rabbit that went through the awful experiment. This animal was popular in Europe between the 17th and 18th century among elite families and is still popular in some parts of the world.

The Emperor Tamarin

The Emperor Tamarin was named after German emperor Wilhelm II, who had quite an obnoxious mustache. At first, people used this name as a joke, but after some time, it became the official name of the animal.
