Our planet is home to so many kinds of animals that it’s probably not even possible to see all of them in our whole life. But it’s always interesting and fascinating to explore different animal species that inhabit the Earth with us. If you take it from some researchers, there are nearly 8.5 million different species living on the planet. In this list, we will show the 10 rare and stunning animals in the world that still exist within the wild.

Check out 10 of those stunning animals in our list below. Feel free to add your examples via our twitter page.
