|Chicken, but not from Hell (by N.A. Irlbeck, Bugwood.org)|
- Extinct feathered dinosaur called Anzu wyliei or "Chicken from Hell." Oddly, it is called this because it was found in the Hell Creek Formation.
- Moroccan flic-flac spider (Cebrennus rechenbergi) which, rather than running, will cartwheel away from threats at up to 2 m/s
- Bone-house Wasp (Deuteragenia ossarium) constructs a nest with many cells in which one egg is laid in each cell. The wasp will then hunt for a spider to put in the cell with the egg, to provide nutrition for the larva to eat upon hatching, and it seals the cell shut. One cell will contain only a large amount of dead ants to serve as a chemical barrier and scent mask to protect the larvae.
