The world certainly has a strange assortment of life. Many animals often possess remarkable abilities that evolution has honed over centuries. Some of these creatures live on land, and many live in the various oceans. These abilities are jaw-dropping, and some of them should make us a bit jealous. The following list comprises a handful of such creatures, so read on to see just how amazing evolution can be. From creatures that can regenerate their own brains, to others that fire bubble-like bullets, this list provides numerous examples of Mother Nature’s finest creations.

This bright, neon shrimp actually has two super powers. They have 16 color-receptor sites in their eyes, allowing them to see all colors including ultraviolet. Humans, in comparison, only have three (red, green, blue). Its second ability is that it can snap its claws at about 30-50 mph, with accelerations of (102,000 m/s^2).
This creature is nearly immortal. When it gets old or injured it dives to the sea floor, and there it will fold in upon itself. Essentially, it reverts back to its “polyp” stage, or its baby-form, and begins life anew.
These birds have the most complicated vocal muscles out of all the songbirds. With their ability, they can mimic an innumerable range of sounds both natural and artificial. Camera shutters, car alarms, barking dogs, human voices, chainsaws – the list goes on. Supposedly, the male lyrebirds will try to incorporate a whole host of sounds into their songs as a way to attract females. So imagine a male lyrebird trying to attract a female by barking like a dog!
This guy is the Wolverine of frogs. When threatened, it somehow breaks its own bones internally and extends the broken parts out its feet and hands. They also have wicked sideburns like Wolverine, too.
Mimic Octopi have the ability to mimic a plethora of other underwater species, such as the lionfish, jellyfish, and sea snakes; and it does so by changing its color and reshaping its body. It can gauge the threat of another creature and shape-shift in a matter of seconds.
Also known as “water bears”, these guys are nearly indestructible. They’re tiny, only 0.059 inches in size, and can survive for nearly 120 years without food. Freezing or boiling temperatures…no problem! Pressures 6x greater than the oceans deepest depths…child’s play! Vacuum of space…piece of cake! They accomplish this by essentially dehydrating themselves to the point where their metabolic function becomes amazingly slow.
These shrimps can produce lethal acoustic pressure. They have one enormous claw, while the other is much smaller in comparison. They can snap this large claw so fast that it forms a bubble that can travel at nearly 60 mph and reach temperatures around 8,500 degree Fahrenheit.
Platypus’s have “electrolocation”. Essentially, they have receptors in their bill that allows them to detect the electrical signals their prey may generate. The ironic thing is, the more quickly prey flees, the more electricity it generates, so it becomes easier for a platypus to pursue it. What’s more, the males have barbs on their hind legs that can inject a lethal poison.
