6. Penguins.

"Okay, welcome to life #74,102,345,567. We've decided to give you the name Penguin"

"Cool. So what am I?"

"Well...you're a bird but-"

"Oh sweet! Raptor of the sky; flying around on the breeze."

"Well uh...not quite. You actually are unable to fly."

"Huh...well that's okay, Cassowary can't fly but nobody dares mess with him. I mean those huge claws will come in handy-"

"Yeah sorry, no talons or anything either. We went with a different route."

"....Well if I can't fight or fly, then I must have evolved to be crazy fast like Emu or Road-Runner."

"Well fast is a bit subjective really.. You can waddle at like 3 miles per hour"

"..."

"Don't be mad."

"Is this a joke? Am I the new Dodo? I'm gonna get picked off by predators in no time!"

"Well you do have a few predators like Polar Bear and Killer Whale, and the newbie "human" can be kinda a dick, but you do have less predators than many."

"Well its something.."

"Yeah most predators were not interested in subzero temperatures."

"OH GOOD, I GET SOME PEACE OF MIND FREEZING MY BUTT OFF!"

"Hey take it easy, Turkey isn't much better and he's cool."

".....So what DID I get?"

"Well you kinda look like you're wearing a butler's outfit.."

"Sorry?"

"You're feathers kinda make it look like you're wearing a little cute tuxedo."

"How does that help me?! Whatever I'm leaving now.."

"Alright good luck, hope the humans don't melt your home."

"Wait..what?!"

7. I don't really think they're the animal evolution messed over the hardest, but I want to mention antechinuses, which are a kind of small marsupial that look similar to rodents. Antechinuses literally mate themselves to death. Like, physically, their body falls apart. They have sex until they physically disintegrate.

It's a viable reproductive strategy, it's just also kind of terrifying.
