F rom the humid jungles of Borneo to the deserts islands of Panama, the shores of Delaware Bay to the cool ocean waters of Australia, join naturalist Nick Baker as he travels the globe in search of the planet's most bizarre animals.

Nick cranks up the X factor, taking viewers to some of the most inhospitable corners on Earth to find the ugliest, slimiest and oddest creatures out there. “Weird Creatures With Nick Baker” will air on Thursday at 9 p.m. from May 26 on Animal Planet.

What looks like a horse, swims under water and has leaf-like appendages? Clueless? What looks like a lizard, albeit a nude one and moves like a worm? Leafy Sea Dragons and Mole Lizards are among the oddballs that Nick discovers on his search for the kookiest creatures to ever walk – and slither – on Earth. His hunt is helped by leading scientists at the American Museum of Natural History in New York and experienced local experts.
