This isn't a Photoshopped post – those are these unique animals' natural bright colors! Most animals land somewhere along with the black, brown, or yellow color spectra, but not these creatures that are sporting some truly unique colors! These unusual animals illustrate that nature has a far more colorful and diverse color palette than you might have realized.

If there are any cool animals with unusual markings that you think we missed, add them to our list! The only rule is that their color has to be natural, no matter if it is a colorful bird or a slug. And don't forget to vote for your favorite interesting photos of this bunch!
