8 GREATEST ANIMAL SURVIVORS 5-8

Have you ever thought of what our lives would be like if modern technology was taken away from us and civilization vanished? Mankind would probably not survive. Unlike our more spoiled species, animals in the wild are expert survivors of harsh conditions. Continuing with our list of the more tough ones in the animal kingdom, here are the top survivors in the wilderness.

#5 Remoras
Remoras are masters of hiding and escape. These species survive with the help of the ferocious king of the oceans – sharks. Also called suckerfish, these sea creatures have fins that are built with the suction function, allowing them to latch onto the skin of larger marine species. Hence, they would fix themselves to sharks in dire situations or even use them as transportation. Quite an impressive way of surviving these dark waters.

#6 Lung Fish
Another sea animal makes it to our list – let us introduce the incredible Lung Fish. As their name suggests, these fishes are adept in the most primary survival skills: breathing. They mostly reside in fresh water locations in Africa, and are able to survive even the driest season when water is scarce. This is because they can dig and hide themselves into mud, while still using their lungs to breath. With this, they can survive rainless days until the water returns.

#7 Coyote
Coyote are wild canines that plague our neighborhood. This only proves their ability to adapt and survive in our concrete cities, unlike wolves. Often seen lingering in the outskirts of towns, Coyotes have been frequently reported to snatch small pets and even hurt young children. These ruffians are definitely not afraid of urbanization.

#8 Camel Spider

Spiders are actually cousins of the lethal scorpions, and this species also has its fair share of deadly breeds. While the notorious black widows gain the most media and pop culture attention, camel spiders take the crown in terms of survival abilities. With incredible speed, it can levitate its body to run at 16 KPH, escaping easily from danger. Found mainly in dry geographic areas, they can thrive in the most parched regions in the planet.
