Attenborough’s Ark

If you can save ten animals from extinction, which animals would you
pick? Sir David Attenborough shows us his pick in his new TV series Attenborough’s
Ark
[warning: auto-starting video]. The BBC has the slideshow of the
ten animals he’d save, including this one above:

Another strange species highlighted by Sir David is the rare Hispaniola
solenodon that has existed since prehistoric times but now only survives
in Haiti and the Dominican Republic. The unusual nocturnal animal has
a venomous bite and an incredibly mobile nose thanks to a ball and socket
joint.

A mobile nose? That’s so fantastic! Link
