Umair Jalali describes some fascinating creatures

Animals are the most wonderful thing that nature has given to human race. It is observed that there are many animal species that have very unusual shapes and colours. The remarkable colours and particular colouration can serve to disguise itself from predators, to imitate another species or to find a partner. Humans are attracted to the most extraordinary colours and shapes and are fascinated by them. These creatures are indeed unique in their colours that are unbelievably flashy.
