Here Are 10 Animals That Have Special Abilities Humans Could Only Dream of Having

WRITTEN BY: Anthony Bouchard


When you think of super powers, you probably think back to your favorite comic super hero. Whether that's Super Man, Batman, Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, the Hulk, or some other hero, you probably never thought that animals have some pretty crazy abilities that could be thought of as super powers.

Despite the fact that some abilities seem like something we see every day, like flying, breathing underwater, or running super fast, there are some animals out there that have some ridiculous abilities that humans could only dream of having the science to imitate.

For example, there are animals out there that can imitate sounds perfectly, even when they're created by machinery and not other animals. There are also animals out there that are able to revert back to being young again after reaching an old age. And if that isn't impressive enough for you, there are even animals out there that can shape-shift to take on the appearance of something else.

In this video, Beyond Science takes us through 10 animals in the wild that have what some may refer to as super powers, because humans lack the ability to do these kinds of things naturally.
