Some animals get all the luck when it comes to being colourful. The brightly coloured birds, the colourful insects. And some animals are so lucky they have every colour under the sun to try to attract a mate. These are the world’s most colourful animals and they look rather like living rainbows…

Rainbow Leaf Beetle

10 – Chrysolina cerealis

What they lack in size (just 8mm fully grown) they make up for in colour. No wonder they are treated with respect throughout Eurasia.

Chameleon

9 – Chameleons

This is a slight cheat because Chameleons can change colour into just about whatever they fancy. But their resting state colours are quite colourful anyway. Not quite as colourful as these rainbow cats, but still pretty good!

Harlequins are quite colourful characters anyway, but this little bug doesn’t need any silly looking costume.

Golden Jumping Spider

Spiders are not normally a thing of beauty. But this tiny jumping spider sure is colourful, but still strangely scary.

Rainbow Lorikeets

There was always going to be one bird on this list like a parrot, but in the end, I went with these amazing lorikeets that all seem to have matching colours.

Mantis Shrimp

2 – Stomatopoda

Lots of the world’s marine crustaceans are colourful, but this shrimp takes it to the next level.

Cortez Rainbow Wrasse

1 – Thalassoma lucasanum

Fish come in all sorts of shapes and colours, but none of them is more colourful than this species of Wrasse. The yellow strip is such a massive contrast to the rest of the colours, but they all look luminescent.
