About this deal

What would happen if you were to combine a lizard, a mole, a snake, and a worm? You’d probably end up with something that looks a lot like the Mexican Mole Lizard.

The Aye-Aye is the world’s largest nocturnal primate. It has rodent-like teeth that grow perpetually, and a special middle finger that is long, thin and skeletal in appearance. A great start to the weird list! The ‘ penis snake’ as it has since been dubbed due to its appearance, isn’t actually a snake. Its species, caecilian, is a group of limbless, amphibians that are snake like, but have rings like a earth worm. Now that is a weird animal. Babirusas have a distinct prehistoric appearance with long canine tusks and a distinct weird prehistoric appearance. Okapi are referred to as a ‘living fossil’ and have several different names including zebra giraffe, Congolese giraffe and forest giraffe for obvious reasons. Comparisons with Auden are the inevitable clichés of Fenton reviewing, but they exist for a reason. Auden could write for the most part as if Auden had never written – Fenton never had that advantage. Aside from the technical virtuosity of his verse and his bravura in the face of daunting subject matter, it's Fenton's ability to meld public and private voices, along with a constant capacity for totally unexpected phrasemaking that most justifies the comparison. In a love poem, "Out of Danger", he opens with the Audenesque "Heart be kind and sign the release / As the trees their loss approve. Learn as the leaves must learn to fall / Out of danger, out of love." The analogy is already surprising, but it's hard to imagine any contemporary poet able to create something so oddly poised between the intimate and the impersonal, and so unafraid (as Auden was) to tamper with and invert syntax for a rhyme which is itself so powerfully unemphatic as "love" and the oddly formal "approve".The Honduran white bat is also known as the Caribbean white tent-making bat and is a pygmy species of bat, which has white fur and leaf-shaped nose and ears.

The Memory of War was the title of Fenton's 1982 collection, and his poems are concerned not just with remembering but with forgetting. In "German Requiem", his most elliptical and compressed poem, Fenton writes about the legacy of the second world war, deliberately blurring the moral certainties whereby remembering is good and necessary and forgetting is a kind of abdication. There is a bleak, deadpan inner dialogue – "It is not what he wants to know. / It is what he wants not to know. / It is not what they say. It is what they do not say" – and there is an equally bleak wit: "How comforting it is, once or twice a year, / To get together and forget the old times."

Make a decision, a conscious decision, if you're willing to give away your mortal form and become a manifestation of joy and pleasure. The Fangtooth, also known as the ‘Ogre Fish’ are dee-sea fish found up to 5,000m below the sea. They have the largest relative teeth to their size in the ocean! The Vampire Ground Finch lives on the The Galapagos Islands and looks like any other innocent finch, however it has a rather unusual diet – it likes to drink the blood of other birds.

The Marabou Stork is a giant stork, known as the ‘undertaker’ bird due to it’s rather evil looking appearance. It has one of the largest wingspans in the world, and likes to kill flamingos. The manatee are rather strange-looking rotund floaty vegetarians that bounce about in the shallows of the tropics, often referred to as ‘sea cows’. The bobbit worm is a bristle worm that can grow up to 3m in length, that likes to dig burrows in the ocean floor near coral reefs. It will detect prey before striking and pulling them into its burrow! Screaming young children' wounded in refugee camp blast, charity says; deadly strike 'targeted Hamas commander' The oddly counted lords are always out of sync with at least one other evenly counted cycle. These two strange counts assured that at no single moment could all cycles end at the same time for an extraordinarily long time, for at least one odd count threw off all the even ones.The Liger is a hybrid offspring of a male Lion and a female Tiger. They typically grow signifcantly larger than either parent species, making their appearance rather weird. Have fun and socialize with others, keep away the filth, and enjoy existence without the need to eat or drink. The seas of cloud have contributed much to the ethereal atmosphere of the Yellow Mountains, making peaks look like islands in the sky. The best time to appreciate this phenomenon is from November to May, especially after rainy/snowy days, at sunrise or sunset.

Staying overnight near the mountain tops allows a more relaxing pace and enough time to admire stunning a sunrise and sunset. Cable cars are beneficial to save time and energy, since there are an estimated 60,000 steps to the main highlights.enough warm clothes (it's several degrees colder at altitude), layers of clothes are practical for taking on and off when climbing the mountain. To reach Huangshan City, you can choose bullet trains from Hangzhou (1½ hours), Shanghai (2½ hours), Suzhou (3 hours), or Beijing (6½ hours). Or you can choose flights from Beijing, Xi'an, Chengdu, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Guilin, or Kunming. The Pink Fairy Armadillo is a desert-adapted mammal with a ‘pink’ bony armor shell, and the smallest species of armadillo in the world.
