Environmental forces have motivated animals to creatively adapt in nature. From camouflage to agility to acute senses, some animals have managed to defy death, defeat predators, and rule their environment. Many animal abilities continue to leave experts baffled.

Here at HuffPost, we've decided to feature some animals with amazing superpowers, beyond the five senses humans possess. From venom power to the power to shock, be sure to vote for the animal that just seems out-of-this-world!

Anglerfish: Unusual Reproductive Power
 
Incapable of feeding themselves after they mature, male anglerfish must quickly seek out their mate by smell for their survival. After the male anglerfish finds a mate, he bites her skin. This releases an enzyme that dissolves his lips and her skin so they're connected at the blood level. He is then able to permanently attach himself to her, allowing him to obtain nutrients. He is also able to inject her with sperm when hormones in her blood signal that she's ready to release eggs.
