5 Animals with Amazing Abilities

Tony Hakim has devised a list of five animals that have amazing abilities! These animals could be considered superheroes if they were in human form.

5. Coconut Crab

The coconut crab is the largest species of crab in the world. Growing up to 1 metre in length, the crabs also possess a set of enormous claws. The Coconut Crabs get their name from their ability to climb coconut trees, and crush open coconuts with their enormous claws.

4.  Cockroach

Who would have thought these disgusting household critters would make this list. Cockroaches have the amazing ability of being able to live for a number of weeks without their heads. This is due to all of the respiratory systems of the cockroach being located in its body. The cockroach will eventually die due to starvation or dehydration.

3. Clown fish
Famous for more than the movie ‘Finding Nemo’, clown fish are born with amazing talent. Clown fish are all born as males, but have the ability to suddenly change their sex. In a group it is common that when the dominant female dies, the dominant male will change its gender to female and begin to mate with the new dominant male.

2. Basilisk Lizard

Also known as its more common nickname the Jesus Lizard, this lizard is easily one of the coolest animals in the world. The Jesus Lizard is able to run on top of the surface of water for around 5 metres before it will start sinking. It does this running on two legs instead of four.

1. Lyre Bird

Australian’s very own Lyre Bird tops the list of animals with amazing abilities. The Lyre Bird can mimic a vast array of different sounds. Whilst it normally impersonates other birds, it has been recorded copying car alarms, camera clicks and even chainsaws!
