While rare animals are often members of an
endangered species, that's not always true.
For example this white moose is a mutation
of normal parents.

On the other hand, the Blue Booby is
endangered due to rapidly declining population
while there are still thousands of them off the
west coasts of Central and South America.

Here are 30+ of the rarest animals on earth.
Many of these are endangered, but not all.
They are easy to find on the internet,
but ONLY if you know to look for them.
