Alligator vs Crocodile!



A new type of crocodile was just discovered in Africa.

The just keeps getting wilder.

It's hard to believe that scientists are still finding entirely new species in 2019, but a prehistoric marsupial lion, a , and a wasp with built-in armor are just a few of the creatures that have been discovered right under our noses this year.

From the deep seas to Indonesian trees, 2019's weirdest and most unsettling discoveries might surprise you.

Genie's dogfish, a cartoon-eyed shark, was discovered by Florida scientists in July.

Florida researchers uncovered this dogfish shark earlier this summer. Named after "the Shark Lady" Eugenie Clark, a famous shark researcher, Genie's dogfish features cartoonishly large, bright blue eyes. Huge peepers aside, the shark is only about 20 to 28 inches long.

Known asSqualus clarkae,it lives in the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Ocean. Like others of its kind, it's threatened by commercial fisheries — which often accidentally catch sharks.

Marine scientist Mariah Pfleger said in a statement, "The first step to successfully conserving these species that live in deeper waters, like Genie's dogfish, is finding out what is down there in the first place."

This parasitic wasp comes with its own blade. It was found in January by researchers from Penn State and the Natural History Museum in London.

Dendrocerus scutellaris.

The Tapanuli orangutan, from Indonesia, was named its own species this year.

A new tardigrade was discovered on a bit of moss in a Japanese parking lot in February.

A kind of tardigrade.

Japanese researcher Kazuharu Arakawa was scraping moss off his apartment building's parking lot — a frequent activity of his — when, after sampling it, he discovered a new type of tardigrade.

A tardigrade is a "water bear" of sorts. Less than roughly 0.03 of an inch, they have portly bodies and eight little legs — and, they're tremendously adaptable, able to survive in extreme cold and extreme heat.

The most unusual thing about these new ones? They're vegetarians.

Named after Victor Hugo's iconic hunchback character, this crustacean was found near Antarctica.

Epimeria quasimodo.

This baffling beetle was discovered living among ants in Costa Rica.

Nymphister kronaueri.

These tiny, reddish orange "baffling beetles" don't look like regular beetles. Instead, they look just like the ants they live with.

In fact, they pretend tobeants. Since their spindly bodies are the exact shape, size, and color of the colony of nomadic ants they live with, the beetles will latch onto the ants, letting them do all the work each time the ants move to a new location.

A hermaphrodite lizardfish was found in an Australian haul of over 40,000 species.

Bathysaurus ferox.

A beetle that never sees daylight was found in a cave in southern China.

Xuedytes bellus.

A marsupial lion that existed over a million years ago was discovered from a fossil found in Australia.

Technically this lion was identified in late December of 2019, but it's too cool to pass up.

Researchers from The University of New South Wales in Australia found fossils that suggested the existence of a marsupial, lion-like creature that roamed the earth during the Oligocene era.

It's estimated the lion weighed no more than 50 lbs, and researchers liken it to a modern-day Siberian husky. Despite being a top predator of its time, this animal is believed to have been an omnivore— enjoying a meatandplant-based diet.

A new type of crocodile was just discovered in Africa.

A new species of crocodile, previously thought to be part of another species, was given its own name and distinction on October 24 in the journal "Zootaxa."

The Central African slender-snouted crocodile can be found throughout Africa, all the way from Cameroon to Tanzania. It was confused with its counterpart,Mecistops cataphractus, until : the slender-snout has smoother, softer scales than its relative, in addition to a different skull.

Researchers estimate that there are only about 500 of these crocodiles left in the area, making this new species critically endangered.
