Christmas Island Red Crab

The Christmas Island red crab is a species of land crab that is unique to Christmas Island, Australia, in the Indian Ocean. Christmas Island red crabs are well known for their annual mass migration in which they move in millions to venture from land to the ocean to mate and lay their eggs.

Golden snub-nosed monkey

The golden snub-nosed monkey is a primate species unique to the mountain forests of central and Southwest China. In China, these Old World monkeys go by the Chinese name of Sichuan golden hair monkey or Sichuan snub-nosed monkey. The golden snub-nosed monkey is one of three snub-nose species unique to China and the most widely distributed.

Channel Island Fox

The Channel Island fox is a small fox species unique to the Channel Islands of California. They are a descendent of the larger mainland gray fox, however due to natural phenomenon known as "island dwarfism", their body size was eventually decreased as living on an island means limited resources and space. The Channel Island fox is found nowhere else on Earth but on six of the eight Channel Islands. Each of the six island's populations of fox is considered a separate subspecies and endemic to the area.
