Deep in the caves that litter the Dinaric Alps, a mountain range that stretches from Italy to Kosovo, lives one of the weirdest creatures on the planet. Unofficially known as the “human fish,” these slithering, aquatic oddballs are unlike anything else on the planet.
The actual name for these cave-dwelling salamanders is olm or proteus. Primarily, they can be found in southern Slovenia’s Soča River basin. What is it, though, that makes them so incredibly unique? Well, the best way to understand is just to take a look at them.
Once you do, you’ll be amazed they’re real.
These slimy little guys are, undoubtedly, some of the strangest creatures on the planet. It makes you wonder what other sort of bizarre animals are out there in the most hard-to-reach pieces of the world?
