About the animals:
All the species featured in this series are animals listed by ZSL's EDGE conservation program ( as among the world's rarest most extraordinary, often least known, and most endangered.

The animals on the icon: the icon features three lesser-known endangered species; an olm, which is a blind, slightly snake-like amphibian that lives in caves (people used to think they were dragon embryos); a long-beaked echidna - a spiky, egg-laying, ant-eating hedgehog look-a-like (but no relation) with a really long nose and mouth from New Guinea; and the Bali Starling, the Balinese national bird - a striking white bird with a crest and bright blue streak across its eyes, and almost extinct in the wild due to their popularity amongst collectors.
