The Potoo bird (Ghost bird) from Central and South America can appear freaky.
The strange-looking bird possesses a hooked snake-like bill with a massive gape the animal uses to swallow moths and other insects.
A nocturnal insectivore, their yellow eyes glow up into massive googly balls at night. Yet, they are unrelated to owls.
The potoo bird enjoys excellent camouflage, living life perched upon a tree branch during the day.
In addition to looking like a muppet, the bird may be best known for its sound, projecting a creepy melancholic song.
