With more than forty years of field work, WWF scientists have run into remarkable animals - from the cuddly to the creepy crawly. "World's Scariest Animal" kicked off earlier this month with eight creepy contestants including the red-eyed piranha, Johnson's chameleon and the uakari. Last night these three, with the broad-eared horseshoe bat and the Southern ground hornbill, were shut out of the running as the tarantula, saltwater crocodile and Indian cobra slithered ahead for the final round.

The voting for "World's Scariest Animal" ends at midnight on October 30 with the winner announced on Halloween, Monday October 31. Remember: Win or lose, all our critter contestants are vital to biodiversity and the on-going health of their eco-regions. So cast your vote today!
