Tenrecs are a remarkable family of mammals that has recently been shown to share a common ancestry with aardvarks, elephants and sea cows. They have diversified to include members resembling hedgehogs, mice and even otters.
The very creepy Madagascar leaf-nosed snake.The snake's unusual shape's purpose is unknown but aides in the snake's camouflage from predators. Usually calm and only attacks if provoked, but I won't take my chances.
The footage was created by British photographer Paula Webster in Madagasca and shows the snake circling the chameleon before striking it, injecting its body with a toxic paralysing poison and then eating it for lunch.
