This is an almiqui. I don't know about you, but I think he's pretty freaking strange looking.
The almiqui is a Cuban mammal whose most noteworthy characteristic is that it secretes venom in its saliva. My favorite fact about the almiqui is that it was believed to be extinct for most of the 20th century. If you would like to read more about the almiqui, you can see one of my short essays on the subject here.
