11. Hotheaded Naked Ice Borers -- In the April 1995 issue of Discover Magazine, it was reported that wildlife biologist Dr. Aprile Pazzo (Italian for April Fool) had found a new species in Antarctica -- the hotheaded naked ice borer. The made-up creatures had bony plates on their heads could become burning hot, allowing them to bore through ice and hunt penguins. Discover received more mail in response than any other article in its history.
