6. UNCOMMON COMMON SAWFISH
You can find this species in the subtropical and coastal tropical waters of Atlantic and Indo-Pacific oceans. Taking this creature into captivity is strictly restricted in northern Australia.
5. RARE SUMATRAN RHINO
There are less than about 300 Sumatran rhinos that are living in the wilds of Indonesia and Malaysia. They are most sought after by hunters because of the horns that are used for formulating traditional medication.
4. MADAGASCAR’S GREATER BAMBOO LEMUR
3. CUBA’S GREATER FUNNEL-EARED BAT
You can find this creature flying around Cuba, particularly in Cueva La Barca. But due to destruction caused by humans to their habitat, only about 100 Cuban Greater Funnel-Eared bats are left.
2. 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
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.
