The Purple Frog

Otherwise known as Nasikabatrachus sahyadrensis, this odd creature looks like something that should only exist 20 feet tall in some nightmarish fairy tale or slithering around in the background of a Hieronymous Bosch painting, but no, it is real. It was discovered in India back in 2003. Described as a living fossil, it was creeping around back during the days of the dinosaurs. The weirdest thing about this creature is how similar its face resembles that of a human when bulged out, as in the picture above. Further details and links related to this weird real life animal can be found at this article from Wikipedia.

Looks like a moon beast from Lovecraft.
