2. ANGEL SHARK (ALSO KNOWN AS SQUATINA SQUATINA)

Angel Shark (also known as Squatina Squatina)

This species can be found in the Black Seas, the Mediterranean and the Northern Atlantic Sea. One of the reasons they may become extinct is due to commercial fishing. Only a small number of Angel Sharks can be seen in the Canary Islands and the southern Mediterranean. This creature hides under the sand while waiting for fish swimming nearby. The angel shark can swallow small fish.

1. NORTHERN HAIRY NOSED WOMBAT

Northern Hairy Nosed Wombat

This species is one of Earth’s rarest animals that can be found in Queensland, Australia– specifically in Epping Forest National Park. Presently, the estimated number of northern hairy-nosed wombats is about 115. The sense of sight of this animal is very poor; that’s why they use their nose for survival and of course when searching for food, particularly in the darkness.
