2. Ghastly Gharial
Ghastly Gharial, one of the largest species of crocodilians with an odd appearance, making it one of the most peculiar reptiles on Earth. The male gharial can reach up to 20 feet in length, but what truly sets them apart is their thin, elongated snout. Unlike alligators and crocodiles, gharials primarily eat fish, and their unique snout allows them to be fast and reactive in water. Unfortunately, the progressive destruction of their habitats has led to a drastic decline in their population, with only around 250 left in the wild in India and Nepal. Gharials face a real threat of extinction.
