Rare: Almiqui

Rare Almiqui captured.

WANTED. Creepy and dangerous. Last seen: 2003

The Almiqui isn’t pretty but it is most definitely special. Only 37 of these nocturnal Cuban creatures have been captured and the species was thought to be extinct for many years. They resemble shrews or rodents but are not at all related – Almiqui also have venomous saliva. This particular specimen was captured alive in 2003 and released after 2 days of scientific prodding and a quick photo shoot.

The animal in the photo is clearly a stuffed specimen

it looks like somebody died that creepy animals fur

Dr. Seuss Anyone?
