what kind of dog is it?
Looks like a Chinese Crested Dog. And based on the condition of the teeth, possibly a senior dog.
Now that is a weird dog. Chinese cresteds are cute and ugly at the same time.

Naked mole rats are quite odd, in my opinion. They can live a couple decades in their advanced tunneling systems. I've seen a few in zoos - very strange looking.

The ghostshark is beyond weird. It's unlike any animal I've ever heard of. You can definately count it as gross. I won't give you the link, but what you can do is look it up. Trust me, when you read about it you'll be just as amazed as I am.

I want to say giraffes are weird, but I know there are weirder things. Such as the blob fish (Psychrolutes marcidus) Here is a picture: http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=htt ... sch&itbs=1

I actually think blob fishes are cute... in their own special way, just like goblin shark. But they don't even look like they are supposed to be sharks. They so weird and a bit creepy. But I find them interesting. Wish I could be the one to find out nearly everything about them, since we don't know all too much about them.

Hunting is not destruction and i get annoyed by people all ways going like: OOO your killing the animals!
I just say: No. its population managment, and could someone who hates animals know so much about them?
