10 Rainforest Creatures That Defy Imagination
This list could have easily been called 10 Birds of Paradise that Defy Imagination, but we have one represented. Each species seems to outdo the next with their fantastic plumage and mating rituals. The Blue Bird of Paradise, native to Papua New Guinea, is especially extraordinary with its bright blue feathers and two long elegant tail feathers. The males hang upside down and hold out their feathers to display for their potential female mates. The ladies might not be as ornate, but they are considered some of the choosiest birds in the world. These gals will only accept the most exceptionally feathered. How else do you think these males got this way?
