It’s the national bird of both Kenya and Botswana. They can be found throughout the southeastern regions of Africa. 2 sourcePanther Chameleon Found in the tropical forests of Madagascar, these are the most colorful reptiles on the planet. These little guys can change their skin color completely in approximately 20 seconds. However, the idea that chameleons change their colors to blend into their environment is a bit of a misconception. Rather, they change their colors based on things like the weather and their mood. When two males meet, their colors change in an attempt to assert dominance. 3 sourcePeacock Mantis Shrimp With stunning colors of green, purple, red, yellow, and blue, it’s no wonder that this shrimp was given the name ‘peacock.’ 4 sourceGolden Pheasant The Golden Pheasant looks like a real-life phoenix. With a combination of deep red and golden yellow, it’s hard to not appreciate the beauty of this animal. 5 sourceClown Fish With bright orange and white-striped bodies, Clown Fish are not only some of the most colorful in the world, they’re among the most beautiful. They can be found in the Red Sea, Great Barrier Reef, Pacific Ocean, and the Indian Ocean. It has been theorized that the Clown Fish use their bright colors to attract smaller fishes into their anemones. 6 sourceRainbow Lorikeet Found in Australia, the Rainbow Lorikeet almost looks like a bird that has been tie-dyed. They have beautiful patches of purple, red, yellow, blue, and green. 7 sourceChromodoris lochi A colorful sea slug that dances around the sea floor with bright blues and yellows. 8 sourceBlue Dart Frog This poisonous guy can be found in the tropical forests of both Brazil and Costa Rica. As for their bright blue color, it is assumed that their color serves as a warning to potential predators that they are highly poisonous. 9 sourceLove Birds Love Birds are incredibly bright colored and incredibly social. That’s what makes them some of the most popular pets on the planet. There are several mutated varieties of the Lovebird that are selectively bred for their specific colors in aviculture. 10 sourceBlue Ringed Octopus These creatures of the deep blue sea look just as beautiful as they are deadly. They have an unbelievable ability to change their colors drastically when provoked. If they feel they are in danger, they will turn completely yellow and have their blue rings start to ‘flash.’ 11 sourceMandarin Fish With striking hues of yellow, green, blue, red, and orange, this fish is perhaps one of the most stunning on the Pacific Ocean. 12 sourceToucan Found in the forests of South America, these large-billed birds come in over 40 different species.

They also have a stunning bright blue skin that makes them look as if they belong on an alien planet or something. Their bright blue bodies indicate that they are male. Female collared lizards have brown bodies as well as brown heads. 15 sourceScarlet Macaw Native to South America, the Scarlet Macaw boasts a stunning array of colored feathers that make it one of the most gorgeous birds on earth. 16 sourceFiery-Throated Hummingbird Only found in the mountains of Panama and Costa Rica, this beautiful bird has a throat and chest of emeralds, yellows, blues, and reds. 17 sourcePeacock Spider As is the case with many animals in the animal kingdom, these guys use their beautiful colors to try and attract a mate.
