Magnificent Pictures: Ten of the Rarest Animals on Earth


Lions, Tigers and Bears. Unlike these three creatures who can be found all around the world, these ten animals are some of the rarest on earth.

1. Bamboo Lemur

These loveable looking creatures have jaws intended to eat through bamboo, hence the name. Their food consists of eating a lot of bamboo, but, regrettably, there are only about 100 of these little ones left on earth. You can find them in the tropical forest of Madagascar.

2. Araripe Manakin

The Araripe Manakin was first revealed in 1996 and since then has seen its numbers decline due to logging and other expansions that are abolishing its natural habitat. There are roughly 500 of its kind left on this earth.
