If you’re like us, you did a double-take when you saw this picture. At first, it looks like a cuddly little bunny, but then you realize it’s an enormous snail.
While we don’t expect many people reading this to be the kind that will happily go out and pick up snails, it should be noted that a lot of snails can carry a lot of parasites and other nasties that will make your life difficult. So, even if you happen to find a snail that is this ginormous, you should wear a pair of gloves before you do anything with it.
Step Through the Gate
If you're on your way to Mount Lempuyang in Indonesia, you're heading to a volcano that is also the site of a Balinese Hindu temple. To get to those things, you'll have to pass through this intricate and detailed gate, which has stood the test of time.
The western world knows it as "The Gates of Heaven." If you happen to find yourself in Indonesia, it's an incredible place to visit, and despite how nice this picture is, it hardly does the entire area justice. Beautiful mountains and astonishing architecture are both on display.
Butterflies are famous for their beautiful wings. Sometimes the random development of the patterns gives us images, but this one is a little different from the standard stuff. To us humans, it looks like this little guy has "80" printed right on the wing.
No doubt this is just random chance, natural selection, or something like that, but it's still interesting to see it so clearly. Does an older brother have the number seventy-nine on the wings?
Making the Best of a Bad Situation
First of all, if you're a tree, how are you reading this? You don't even have eyes! Secondly, you're stuck where you were planted unless some people figure out a way to move you somewhere else. Not always a good idea, though.
This tree somehow managed to take root in the middle of the sidewalk, and nothing will stop it from getting the nutrients it needs from the soil. Even if it has to create perfectly-square roots that freak us out a little bit. Eh, maybe it will grow on us.
The Incredible See-Through Cow
Cows are pretty visible when you get right down to it. Big, black and white, tall horns. They smell, too. All in all, a species that is destined to be found. This Watusi bull, however, seems to have come up with a workaround.
It has patches of skin that blend in precisely with the surrounding countryside. But, of course, this cow has no idea how clever it is. It just happened to take on the proper color to match the ground at this time of the day and the year. Maybe the grass itself helped change the color.
