The bird CliveKooper suggested is called Shoebill. It's habitat is mainly Sudan. You can find lots of info in Wikipedia. It could be a Flying/Water or Flying/Normal or Flying/Ground(as they love muddy swamps).
The Bilby is a marsupial and it lives in Australia. Very cute animal :3
It could be a Normal type.
Well some animals that I like and I would find interesting as Pokemon would be :
Could be Normal type or even a Grass type as they are herbivores and are strongly related to trees. Normal/Grass would be best.
They could have the ability Immunity as they eat toxic eucalyptus leaves and they are just fine.
75 Sp. Attack
Those things are absolutely great! They could be among the 'pink blobs' since its a literally a pink blob.
130 HP (It looks bulky and something has to make up for the ugly stats below)
5 Attack (No muscle at all)
5 Defense (no muscles, light and soft bones, very jellyish, soft body)
60 Sp. Att
80 Sp. Def
Looks like an inferior version of Chansey.
