There are many old trees out there, but this one is not only far older than you might expect – it’s also kept in a place of honor. This is a ginkgo tree, the last living species in the order of Ginkgoales, which is almost three hundred million years old.
This tree, in particular, clocks in at about fourteen hundred years, and Emperor Taizong of Tang planted it, or so the legend goes. It’s on the protection list of ancient trees in China, and as you can tell, it’s truly a sight to behold.
Colonel the cow stands at a staggering six feet, five inches tall. That's tall for a human! He weighs a ridiculous thirty-five hundred pounds. The owners of Colonel realized that he was something special and decided to keep him around as a pet.
His incredible size barely beats out the previous record holder for the world's giant cow, Old Ben, who died more than a hundred years ago and rose to six feet, four inches. They can't get any milk out of him, but they're going to get something that might be even more useful to their farm – fame.
Not Exactly Native
No, you aren't seeing the last of the Mohicans here – this is just good timing and the right positioning. While the line of Vitamin Water bottles does look like it would work as a classic, vibrant headdress, it's a two-dimensional image. Also, the photo's subject doesn't look like he fits the bill of a war chief.
But who knows, maybe he has some wild stories from Korea or something like that. The kind of stories that will put your hair on end. Today he might be bowling, but he was leading the charge back in the day.
Where Will It Take You?
While it looks like this bridge is straight out of a fairy tale, it's only in Saxony, Germany. Still, it's impossible to say this creation isn't something spectacular. It's also known as Devil's bridge.
It isn't near any large cities, and it's a little challenging to get to it in the park where it's found, but it looks like it's worth it. The Devil bridge's name comes from the fact that it seems so difficult to build. The builders must have had the Devil's help. We wouldn't be surprised to see some hobbits taking a boat right under it.
Dogs are predators at their core, which means they don't need to blend in with the surrounding area. Sometimes, as you can tell, it still works out that way. Here we have a red heeler on the left and a blue heeler on the right, and the owner just so happened to find some ground that matched their fur perfectly.
A little uncertainty improves our days, but we imagine this is on the typical walk path. We're also very fond of the mirrored poses the dogs are in, and oh boy, now we want a dog!
