Ethiopian Lion In 2012, a beautiful image of a midnight-black lion went viral, causing some people to question whether black lions really exist. While there have been rumours around the world of black lions, there have been no documented sightings of a completely black lion. These lions would be REALLY good at hunting at night!! 7. Barbary Lion The Barbary lion is also called the Atlas lion, and the Nubian lion. It dwelled in the mountains and deserts of northern Africa, from Egypt to Morocco but is now considered extinct in the wild. Barbary lions grew up to seven feet long and weighed up to 500 pounds, and were the largest lion subspecies. 6. Addis Ababa Lion In 2012, a population of genetically distinct lions was identified at the Addis Ababa Zoo in Ethiopia. The finding came after the zoo requested help from researchers in Leipzig in proving the lions are unique not only in appearance, but also when it comes to their DNA. 5. Asiatic Lion Panthera leo persica, or the Asiatic lion, is one of the few lion species that exist outside of sub-Saharan Africa. This small population dwells in Gujarat, India in the Gir Forest, a former royal hunting ground turned big cat reserve. 4. White Lion The white lion is not actually a species of lion; and, contrary to popular belief, they’re not albinos. Their strikingly beautiful color, which ranges from near-blonde to white, results from a rare recessive genetic mutation known as ‘leucism.’ 3. Lion Hybrids So for those of you who guessed, here is the answer!! A liger results from a male lion breeding with a tigress. A tigon is the product of interbreeding between a male tiger and a lioness. At a Russian zoo in 2012, a female liger mated with a male lion and gave birth to a liliger. Are you confused yet? 2. West African Lion The West African lion, Panthera leo leo, has a lighter build, longer legs, and a thinner mane than other lions throughout Africa and is thought to be more genetically similar to the Barbary and Asiatic lions than the sub-Saharan species. 1. East African Lion Panthera leo nubica, also called the East African lion or the Masai lion, is a subpopulation inhabiting parts of Southern and East Africa, including Kenya, Ethiopia, Somalia, Uganda, South Sudan, Mozambique, and Tanzania.

Geamana, Romania During the 1970’s, copper was discovered in the Apuseni Mountains surrounding the Romanian village of Geamana. In 1977, Communist dictator Nicolae Ceaușescu decided to exploit the huge underground deposit. Engineers needed somewhere to dump wastewater from the new copper mine, named Rosia Poieni. As a result, in 1978, the regime forcibly relocated the 400 families living in the town. 8. Blue Lake, Russia Located in Kabardino-Balkaria, Russia, Blue Lake is as beautiful as it is mysterious. Nobody truly knows how deep it is, but it’s believed to be one of Europe’s deepest lakes. Unmanned submersibles have gone as far down as 111.25 meters (365 feet) beneath the water’s surface, with some estimates putting the lake’s possible maximum depth at 258 meters (846.5 feet). 7. Gafsa Beach, Tunisia In August 2014, a lake between 10 and 18 meters (32.8-59 feet) deep appeared out of nowhere from one day to the next! Just overnight in drought-ridden Tunisia. It was discovered by shepherds and named “Lac de Gafsa,” or Gafsa Beach, and quickly became a popular place for people to catch some relief from the heat by taking a swim. 6. Lake Natron, Tanzania The bright-red Lake Natron in Africa’s Great Rift Valley is the world’s most caustic waterbody. What does this mean? It contains high amounts of alkaline and salt, giving the water a pH as high as 10.5 (almost like ammonia), effectively turning animals and anyone else who might fall in- into stone. 5. Lake Kaindy, Kazakhstan Crystal-clear Lake Kaindy is nestled in the Tian Shan Mountains of southern Kazakhstan in Kolsai Lakes National Park, near the border with Kyrgyzstan. It’s four kilometers (2.5 miles) long and ranges in color from bright blue to emerald green depending on the light, due to various minerals in the water, including lime. 4. Boiling Lake, Dominica On the Caribbean island of Dominica, 10.5 kilometers (6.5 miles) east of the capital of Roseau, sits a flooded opening in the Earth’s crust, or a fumarole, appropriately named the Boiling Lake. It’s situated at the bottom of a large basin and is filled with blueish-gray water, with a cloud of vapor constantly emanating from the surface. 3. Lake Nyos, Cameroon Located in the Northwest Region of Cameroon, Lake Nyos was considered a non-threatening, placid, blue waterbody until August 26, 1986. That evening, nearby villagers went to inspect a rumbling sound and discovered a tall water fountain spouting from the volcanic lake. It was accompanied by a 100-meter-high (328 feet) white cloud of gas that flowed down the valley and through nearby villages. 2. Mono Lake, California Located 13 miles east of Yosemite National Park in Mono County, California, Mono Lake is a saline soda lake that formed over 760,000 years ago, making it one of the oldest lakes in North America. Due to water coming in, but not going out, the waterbody became highly saline and alkaline, making it inhospitable to most lifeforms, including fish. 1. Lake Karachay, Russia Russia’s Lake Karachay is considered one of the most polluted places on the planet. It has an extremely high radioactive waste content. In 1990, standing on the shore for just an hour would administer a potentially deadly dose of radiation. Lake Karachay is located in the Ural Mountains near Mayak Production Association, one of Russia’s largest nuclear production facilities, which existed in secrecy until 1990.

Honda Riding Assist Honda debuted its concept model of its self-balancing motorcycle, the Honda Riding Assist, at CES 2017, the world’s largest consumer electronics and technology tradeshow. 7. BMW Motorrad Link BMW introduced the concept for its Motorrad Link in 2017 at the prestigious Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este vehicle show at Lake Como, Italy. Sorry, I just had to say it like that! It’s just too much fun! 6. Kawasaki J Concept Three-wheeler Kawasaki originally introduced its “Concept J” three-wheeler to the public at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show. It had two wheels in front and one in the back, and was designed based on the idea of the motorcycle adjusting to the rider instead of the other way around, which would be a first in the motorcycle world. 5. BMW Motorrad Vision Next 100 In 2018, BMW featured its radical concept of a motorcycle representing the company’s vision for the next 100 years at the “Iconic Impulses. The BMW Group Future Experience” exhibition in Los Angeles. The hypothetical motorcycle is called the BMW Motorrad Vision Next 100 and it’s so smart, it eliminates the need for a helmet or any other protective gear, even for amateur riders. 4. Brigade Designed by Charles Bombardier, Brigade is a conceptual driverless motorcycle meant to help keep order on the streets and free-up law enforcement for more important work than monitoring traffic. It’s equipped with cameras, sensors, speakers, and projectors. If that’s not enough, it is powered by electricity and can balance by itself. 3. NeuTron Bike Developed by Parker Brothers Concepts, the NeuTron bike was inspired by the Light Cycle from the 2010 movie Tron Legacy. Parker Brothers Concepts is a Florida-based company that focuses solely on creating wild-looking concept vehicles, so it’s only natural that when they were hired to bring artist Daniel Simon’s Light Cycle blueprints to life for the movie, they nailed the task. 2. BMW Titan In 2016, Istanbul-based Turkish designer Mehmet Doruk Erdem designed the BMW Titan concept. This Batman-esque motorcycle has a sleek, radical design in which the bike’s front wheel is completely hidden inside the vehicle’s bodywork. 1. Yamaha MOTOROiD Are you familiar with the Japanese word “Kando”? According to the Yamaha website it represents the “simultaneous feelings of deep satisfaction and intense excitement that we experience when we encounter something of exceptional value,”.

Saint Bernard At a height of up to 2.5 feet and a weight of up to 180 pounds, it’s no wonder the Saint Bernard is considered one of the strongest dog breeds in the world. In fact, the American Kennel Club (AKC) recommends training Saint Bernards as puppies to prevent them from sneaking food from the dinner table, since they’re tall enough to reach, or they can also accidentally knock people over!! 9. Mastiff At first glance, the mastiff is pretty intimidating! I mean these dogs are giants! Standing around 2.5 feet tall at the shoulders, they often outweigh a grown man. In addition to its colossal size, the mastiff is extremely muscular, and its strength matches its appearance. It also has an incredible bite strength that varies according to the specific breed - for example, the English mastiff has a bite strength of 552 pounds per square inch, while the Dogo Canario’s bite strength ranks around 540 pounds per square inch. 8. Rottweiler Some powerful dogs bump into people and things by accident like a bull in a China shop, seemingly unaware of their size. As an ancient herding breed, however, the Rottweiler does this on purpose when it wants people to fall in line. Although Rottweilers can be trained well, they’re typically not recommended for households with elderly people or young children, due partially to this tendency to knock people over! 7. Carpathian Shepherd The Carpathian shepherd is a very strong dog with a wolfish appearance. Although this breed has a less stocky build than some dogs, it still can weigh up to 100 lbs and it’s an incredibly powerful watchdog that was originally bred for protecting sheep from predators in mountainous terrain. 6. Doberman Pinscher With a maximum weight of 90 pounds and a tall, muscular frame, the Doberman Pinscher is leaner than some of the other powerful dog breeds. However, what it lacks in bulk, the Doberman Pinscher makes up for with its high energy, quick speed, tough nature, and no-nonsense loyalty. It also has a bite strength of 230 pounds per square inch, ranking it among the top 15 dog breeds in that category. 5. Newfoundland The imposing, heavy Newfoundland stands up to 28 inches tall and weighs as much as 150 pounds. It’s one of the world’s largest dog breeds and requires abundant yard space and exercise to stay healthy. Does it remind you of another animal? With its massive head and thick fur, many people say the Newfoundland can get confused with a bear!! 4. Alaskan Malamute The Alaskan malamute reaches a maximum height of 25 inches and typically weighs no more than 85 pounds, and is not among the most powerful dog breeds based on size alone. 3. Dogo Argentino The Dogo Argentino is a pack dog that was originally bred for hunting wild boar and pumas, so this dog is no joke. I mean, pumas! Really?! This supremely athletic, highly-intelligent breed is known for its quick responsiveness, as well as its sheer physical strength. With a muscular frame, intense energy, and a great lung capacity, the Dogo Argentino’s power is explosive to be able to keep up with its prey. 2. Cane Corso The Cane Corso stands at nearly 2.5 feet at the shoulder and often weighs over 100 pounds. This robust Italian breed has the natural appearance of a bodyguard, with a broad head, wide muzzle, and a large, muscular frame. The Cane Corso is an ancient breed that goes back to Roman times. They descend from a type of dog known as mollosers which were bred by the Greek Molossi tribe. 1. Kangal Alright you guys! For those of you who guessed, here is the answer!! A dog’s strength can be measured in various ways, including its body and bite, as noted by journalist Olivia Grisham, who specializes in animal care. It’s therefore difficult to single out a specific breed as the world’s most powerful.

MV Mont The oil supertanker MV Mont was classified as an Ultra Large Crude Carrier (ULCC). Throughout its years in service, it has had several names. Originally called the Seawise Giant, the ship was built by Sumitomo Heavy Industries, Ltd. in Japan between 1979 and 1981. It was the world’s longest ship, measuring 1,504 feet (458 meters) long and 226 feet (69 meters) wide. 7. MSC Gulsun At 109 feet (33.2 meters) high, 1,312 feet (400 meters) long, and with a beam measurement of 201 feet (61.4 meters), the MSC Gulsun is the world’s largest container ship. It’s owned by the Mediterranean Shipping Company and went into service in July of this year. 6. USS Gerald R. Ford The USS Gerald R. Ford is the US Navy’s largest and newest aircraft carrier. It’s the first of the Ford-class carrier fleet, which are more technologically advanced than the previous Nimitz-class carriers and offer significant performance improvements. 5. Symphony Of The Seas Owned by Royal Caribbean, the 228,081-ton Symphony of the Seas is the world’s largest cruise ship. It’s nine stories tall, 1,188 feet (362 meters) long, and over 215 feet (65.5 meters) wide. 4. Pioneering Spirit The Swiss-designed crane vessel Pioneering Spirit, previously known as the Pieter Schelte, is the world’s largest construction ship. It was built in South Korea between 2011 and 2014 by Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering. Measuring 1,253 feet long (382 meters) long and 407 feet (124 meters) wide, it was designed for the record-weight installation of pipelines and the single-lift installation and removal of large oil and gas platforms. 3. RMS Queen Mary II The RMS Queen Mary II is the largest ocean liner ever built and the only passenger ship operating as an ocean liner. It’s the flagship of the Cunard line and went into service in 2004 as the planned replacement vessel for the aging Queen Elizabeth II. 2. REV Ocean In August, the world’s biggest superyacht was launched at the Vard Tulcea shipyard in Romania. Owned by Norwegian billionaire Kjell Inge Røkke, the 600-foot-long (182.9 meters) REV Ocean seized the title from the 590-foot-long Azzam, which was the world’s biggest superyacht for the previous six years. Røkke is a fisherman turned billionaire with a net worth of over 2 billion. 1. Yacht Express The Yacht Express is part of a fleet owned by a Dutch-owned company called Dockwise Yacht Transport (DYT). Based in Fort Lauderdale, it’s the world’s only fleet that offers float-on and float-off yacht transport service. In addition to its unique boarding system, Yacht Express is the world’s largest yacht carrier.

In 2007, a team of divers found the ancient skeleton of a teenage female, whom they named Naia. Her remains were estimated to be over 12,000 years old. 8. Swedish Atlantis In 2011, a team of divers discovered a collection of Stone Age artifacts off the Swedish coast, in the Baltic Sea. Included among the relics were a harpoon made from animal bone, flint tools, animal horns, wood, ropes, and the bones of ancient animals called aurochs. 7. An Ancient Forest In 2015, divers Dawn Watson and Rob Spray of the volunteer group SeaSearch discovered the remains of a 10,000-year-old forest off the coast of Norfolk, England, at the bottom of the North Sea. Pretty cool place for a forest to hide! Watson found the forest just 300 meters (984.2 feet) from shore. At first, she thought she’d encountered the remains of a shipwreck. 6. An Underwater River The dense, tropical jungle of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula is littered with amazing cenotes, which are sinkholes caused by collapsed limestone that exposes the groundwater. One of the region’s sinkholes, the Cenote Angelita, comes with an extra surprise! It contains a distinct underwater river, located about 100 feet (30 meters) below the surface. 5. Shifting Tectonic Plates British scuba diver, marine biologist, and underwater photographer Alexander Mustard is one of the few people who can say they’ve swum between two continents. How?? He entered a gap between the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates near Iceland. The plates are separating at a rate of about one inch (2.54 cm) per year, and Mustard has captured breathtaking images during his dives into the crevice. 4. A Missing WWII-Era Submarine In 2016, divers off the coast of Sardinia found the remains of the long-lost British World War II submarine HMS P311. The initial discovery was made by Massimo Domenico Bordone, a wreck hunter based in Genoa, Italy. He identified the ruins as the HMS P311 by the vessel’s two Chariot-style manned torpedoes. 3. Underwater “Crop Circles” Japanese scuba diver and photographer Yoji Ookata has dedicated over half a century to exploring underwater mysteries. During a dive near Amami Oshima, off the southern tip of Japan in 2012, Ookata stumbled upon something he’d never seen before, despite his decades of diving experience. 2. Brinicles Brine icicles, or brinicles, have several nicknames, including “sea stalactites” and “icicles of .” They might be pretty, but these things are very strange. These beautiful but deadly “tentacles” result from impurities like salt being forced out during the formation of Arctic and Antarctic sea ice. As the stream of salt drains from the ice, the surrounding water becomes more saline, lowering its freezing temperature and increasing its density. 1. 100 New Species In 2018, scientists announced the discovery of the “rare light zone,” more formally called the Rariphotic Zone. It’s an ocean zone extending from 226 feet (130 meters) to 984 feet (300 meters) deep. The new section was discovered during a research trip to Bermuda led by marine scientists from Oxford University and organized by Nekton, a British non-profit organization for ocean exploration.

Flying Tiger Line Flight 739 On March 14, 1962, a Lockheed L-1049 Super Constellation Propliner departed from Travis Air Force Base in California with 93 US Army Rangers, three South Vietnamese soldiers, and nine civilian flight crew members aboard. Charter flight 739 was operated by Flying Tiger Line on behalf of the Military Air Transport Service. 7. The Zanetti Ghost Train On July 14, 1911, three newly-built Zanetti train cars carrying 100 passengers and six crew members departed from Rome, Italy. The first anticipated landmark was a recently constructed, one-kilometer-long tunnel that cut through the Lombard mountains. The train entered, but never exited, the tunnel. 6. Vanishing Truck & Trailer One night in 2012, an Australian man known only as “Mike” met with a friend in the Melbourne suburb of Clayton. He headed home around midnight. There were no other cars on the road. As Mike approached a shopping district, he noticed a vehicle fast approaching in his rear view mirror. 5. The Witchcraft In December 1967, a 23-foot luxury yacht named Witchcraft lived up to its name by vanishing off the Miami coast, near the edge of the notorious Bermuda Triangle. At the helm was hotel owner and experienced yachtman Dan Burack, joined by his friend, Father Patrick Horgan. The pair planned to view the holiday lights of the Miami shoreline. 4.

Remains of the dire wolf have been found in a variety of habitats, including grasslands, savannas, and mountainous, forested areas. 8. Megalania Around 50,000 years ago, humans first migrated to Australia, and for a brief period, these aboriginal settlers shared the continent with the megalania, a now-extinct monitor lizard and the largest known terrestrial lizard to have ever existed. 7. The Giant Ground Sloth You can’t help but love sloths. I mean, they are cute, cuddly, and move very slowly. But back in the time of early humans sloths looked extremely different. Giant Ground Sloths were huge herbivores that lived in the Americas during the ice age alongside rivers and lakes. 6. Columbian Mammoth Meet the Columbian mammoth, a cousin of the better-known woolly mammoth. Around one million years ago, Columbian mammoths appeared in North America.

Short-Faced Bear After bears first came into existence some 40 million years ago, several subspecies evolved, including the short-faced bear, which inhabited North America and was most abundant in modern-day northwestern United States, especially California. The short-faced bear first appeared around 800,000 years ago, during the middle Pleistocene era. 3. Quinkana The quinkana was a huge crocodile that became one of Australia’s top terrestrial predators during the Pleistocene period. It comes from an extinct genus that roamed the continent from 24 million years ago until around 40,000 years ago. On average, the quinkana grew up to 23 feet long - that’s three feet longer than 20-foot Lolong, the longest crocodile ever recorded. 2. American Lion The American lion, or Panthera atrox, wasn’t actually a lion at all. It was, however, one of the great North American mammalian predators of the Pleistocene Epoch. This enormous cat roamed the U.S. and Canada from 1.8 million to roughly 11,000 years ago, when the species died out at the end of the last ice age. 1. Cave Hyena Surely you’ve heard of the laughing hyena. This was its prehistoric cousin. The cave hyena, also known as the spotted coyote, occupied territory from the Iberian Peninsula to eastern Siberia and was roughly double the size of its relative, the laughing hyena, standing up to three feet tall, measuring up to five feet long, and with a maximum weight of 285 pounds.

Mongolian Death Worm In the vast sands of the Gobi desert lives a creature that according to many is too dangerous to even consider approaching: the Mongolian death worm! Locals refer to it as “olgoi-khorkhoi” which roughly translates to “large intestine worm” which makes sense given its description. 9. Alabama's Huggin' Molly In the town of Abbeville, Alabama, a local legend about a 7-foot-tall woman keeps residents on their toes. Dressed in black with a large brimmed hat, Huggin’ Molly is said to be a phantom-like creature who appears to children. 8. The Taniwha Although you may be familiar with famous grainy photographs of mythological creatures, modern technology can give us a more detailed look at territory that had previously been unexplored. Engineer Pita Witehira was researching locations for a holiday home when he spotted a strange anomaly on a satellite photo of Google Earth. 7. The Ogopogo In Canada's British Columbia, hunter Bill Steciuk spotted what he believed to be a legendary Canadian creature in 1978. This mysterious sighting sent him on a journey to uncover the truth about what he might have seen. He had seen three humps and a head moving through the water and over the years continued to conduct hunting expeditions on Okanagan Lake, hoping to catch another glimpse. 6. The Wolf Woman of Mobile In the spring of 1971, people living in Mobile, Alabama and areas nearby were said to have seen a strange-looking creature lurking around. Described as having the upper body of a woman and the lower limbs of a wolf, one of the witnesses described the wolf woman as being "a woman and a wolf, pretty and hairy". 5. The Big Goose of the Pacific Northwest It's no secret that Canadian geese get a bad rap. With a reputation for being overly protective and sometimes snapping at people, this feathered creature can sometimes be seen as a nuisance. 4. The Worm Creature of Iceland Yes, another worm! Weird right? In 2012, a strange video appeared on RUvideos showing a mysterious shape moving below the ice in a lake in Iceland. For some the video was proof that a legendary sea serpent or monster, the subject of folktales in the area since the 14th century, was real. 3. The Flatwoods Monster of West Virginia When tales of an extraterrestrial spread through the Upper Elk River area of West Virginia in the 1950s, locals were pretty alarmed. In 1952, a group of children, a mom, and their dog watched a UFO crash behind a hill near the town of Flatwoods. After the group searched the woods, they discovered a supposed crash site. 2. The Florida Skunk Ape Over the years, there have been numerous sightings of a strange beast known as the Florida Skunk Ape, or the Swamp Sasquatch. It is a cryptid believed to be related to Big Foot, about 6 to 7 feet tall, very hairy, and extremely smelly. 1. Chupacabra Stories of the vampire-like creature first emerged in Puerto Rico in the 1990’s. It began when farmers began noticing that their livestock was starting to get attacked and killed at night by a vampire like-creature, that would leave puncture marks and drain their blood.

Solar Charging Stations Communal charging hubs aren't just for airports anymore. The next time you visit New York, be on the lookout for solar stations located around the city that allow users to charge their devices on the street. Called Street Charge, the solar power comes from three 15 watt solar panels stored in each hub. Units can recharge in just four hours of direct sunlight, but they also absorb UV rays during overcast days. 9. Glow-In-The-Dark Bicycle Paths Bike paths are becoming the norm in cities around the world, so making them more user-friendly is a high priority. A rural town in Poland introduced a glow-in-the-dark bike path that is the perfect way to prevent accidents when the sun starts to go down. 8. Pneumatic Waste Collection System In densely-populated urban environments, garbage trucks are inefficient and loud, and they obstruct traffic. Garbage itself is unsanitary and invites unwanted pests, both indoors and when it’s been put out to the curb. Anyone who’s walked in a busy city the night before garbage pick-up knows firsthand that it’s an eyesore - and it smells. 7. An Urban Oasis A vertical garden tower in Singapore known as Park Royal on Pickering features overflowing gardens and water features that have turned the bustling city into a lush urban oasis. 6. Clean Energy Sources One idea for improving cities that is slowly gaining ground is the implementation of clean energy sources in city centers. To achieve this objective, the energy sources must be efficient enough to truly benefit the city and be non-invasive, so they don’t interrupt the already congestion-prone flow of people and traffic. Can you think of a solution?? 5. Hourglass Traffic Lights Every city dweller knows the fear of trying to make it across a busy downtown street before the light turns red. A designer in Estonia created an innovative traffic light with LED timers that show you just how long you have to make it across the road safely. 4. Battery Recycling Station That Lights Sidewalks Although most modern devices now use rechargeable batteries, there are still those items in everyone's home that use alkaline batteries. All that makes for a lot of waste over the average year, but a new innovation called the Energy Seed allows people to recycle their batteries into something more useful. 3. Edible Water Bubbles Have you ever been caught on the run without something to drink but don't want to contribute to the earth's pollution by buying a bottle of water? These edible water bubbles may be just the thing you need. Known as Ooho, these edible pods made from natural seaweed extract are filled with clean drinking water. 2. Portable Pollution Absorbers The air pollution that concentrates in city centers tends to linger, even with the help of green walls and the occasional plant or tree. A Berlin-based startup called Green City Solutions expanded on the idea of reducing air pollution through greenery by developing the CityTree, a transportable, ready-to-use green wall. 1. Porous Pavement That Prevents Flooding In 2004, the Environmental Services organization in Portland, Oregon paved three blocks of their Westmoreland neighborhood with permeable pavement that allows water to go through from the street surface to the ground. The interlocking blocks look like brick but are actually high-strength concrete.

Pyramid Coin, Isle of Man The Isle of Man, situated in the Irish sea between England, Ireland, and Scotland, is a self-governing territory that's mainly known for the treacherous motorcycle races that take place on its winding roads, and for its population of corporations dodging taxes…but the island is also home to some of the more unusual legal tender coins in the world. 9. Geometric Coins, Somalia The Somali government has released a number of unusual coins over the years, and one set from 2008 were particularly unusual. They were made as 3-dimensional geometric shapes, each of which represents a different basic substance from the ancient world. There's a pyramid for fire, a cube for metal, an orb for earth, a cylinder for wood, and a cone for water. 8. Mammoth Coin, Ivory Coast The economy of the Ivory Coast in Africa was once dominated by the export of elephant ivory, which is thankfully now virtually non-existent due to strict regulations worldwide. It’s still an important part of the country’s history, however… so much so that it’s still in its name and the coat of arms includes an image of an elephant head. 7. Scented Coins, Republic of Palau Scented coins?? Yup! The Republic of Palau is a collection of more than 340 islands in the Western Pacific and is known for its pristine environment and for being the first place in the world to create a shark sanctuary where commercial shark fishing was banned. 6. Cosmic Fireball Coins, Fiji In 2012 and 2013, the cosmic fireball collection was released in Fiji. It was a series of commemorative 10 dollar coins, which contained fragments from meteorites that had fallen in various places around the world. Each variety has a see-through window with the pieces, as well as a design based on the meteorite and the location and date where it was found. 5. Cannabis Coin, Republic of Benin Between 2010 and 2011, the Republic of Benin released the ‘Plants of the World’ series of coins, each featuring a specific plant with pictures of it and...once again, scented! Doesn’t it seem difficult to get the scent of a plant into a coin? They were each worth 100 CFA francs, and while one of them was dedicated to the national flower of the country, the one that stands out as the most unusual is the Cannabis edition. 4. Butterfly Coin, Cameroon In 2011, Cameroon was the first country to release a coin in the series titled ‘Papillons Exotique’ which, translated from French, means ‘exotic butterflies”. Unlike most coins which rely on images etched into the surface, though, these ones were designed in a way that made them seem like they were actually alive, with a butterfly perching on a flower. 3. Toonie, Canada In 2017, the Royal Canadian Mint released a coin that was the first of its type in the world. Designed to mark Canada’s 150th anniversary, the 2 dollar coin, known as a ‘Toonie’, depicts an image of the Aurora Borealis above two canoeists on a lake, and was made with ink that glows in the dark! 2. Easter Island Moai Coin, Cook Islands From the moment Easter Island was first discovered by the outside world, the giant volcanic rock Moai that were created between 1250 and 1500 AD and lined the coast, became instantly iconic. Although a part of Chile, the island is one of the most remote inhabited places on the planet and is part of the collective heritage of the Pacific Islands. 1. Guitar Coins, Somalia Probably the most incredible coins to have been released in recent times are from Somalia. In 2004 they designed a set of six to commemorate the 50th anniversary of rock and roll, and these are unlike any coins you’ve ever seen.

His cat had disappeared, and he suspected that it was stolen for China’s cat meat trade. 7. Rangila Dancing bears are typically captured as cubs or born into captivity. They’re trained to “dance” using cruel methods, such as having a searing hot rod pierced through their nose and a chain attached to the piercing, so the trainer can have maximum control of the animal. There’s no practical reason for dancing bears - they’re used for entertaining crowds in the streets. 6. VACATIONING COUPLE RESCUES STRAY PUPPIES Belén and Tristan are cycling enthusiasts from the Netherlands who had long dreamed of riding down the Pamir Highway through Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. Intent on fulfilling their shared goal, the couple set out on the Pamir Highway in July of 2018. 5. Rafah Zoo Rescue In April of this year, over 40 animals were rescued from the Rafah Zoo in war-torn Gaza by the animal welfare organization Four Paws International. As the war went on, the Rafah Zoo became known as a “zoo of horrors” due to its appalling and ever-worsening conditions. During difficult times for humans it is easy to forget about animals. 4. Cheeto the Dog After residents of Wamba, Texas first noticed a dog with a plastic cheese puff container stuck on his head in June 2017, it took three weeks and dozens of rescuers to catch him. During the lengthy, hot, and humid search, one rescuer was even bitten by a copperhead snake. 3. Dogs Saved From Overcrowded Shelters In February of 2018, animal rescue organizations collaborated in a major effort to rescue over 100 dogs from shelters in Oklahoma. The state is known for its lack of shelters and overpopulation of strays, often tragically leading to euthanasia as a way to deal with the overcrowding. 2. Uber for Birds One Saturday night in late June, Uber driver Christy Guynn was summoned to a residence in Ogden, Utah. Upon arriving, she noticed a group of men with beers in their hands and prepared to tell them they couldn’t bring their drinks in the car. 1. ORCAS RELEASED FROM “WHALE JAIL” In late 2018, disturbing images of around 100 orcas and beluga whales in cramped enclosures were leaked online.

Life-Sized Decoys A species of orb spider found living off the coast of Taiwan builds life-sized replica models of themselves to act as decoys for predators. These spiders decorate their webs with material such as parts of plants or the remains of their prey that is similar to their own coloring and make these strange-looking ornaments. 8. Cartwheeling Spider It might not seem that a species of spider native to the sand dunes of the Namib Desert in southern Africa would have much to worry about. But the Golden Wheel Spider has had to adapt to protect itself from its predators, namely spider wasps. Because this species of spiders builds burrows below the surface of sand dunes and wanders around the desert in search of insects, they are more susceptible to being preyed upon. 7. Spitting Spiders With 239 species that span across the globe, spitting spiders do not sit and wait for predators to come for them. Armed with a venomous silk spray, these spiders have similar coloring and long delicate legs that resemble the more dangerous brown recluse spider. 6. The Brazilian Wandering Spider Known as the world's deadliest spider, the Brazilian Wandering Spider is similar to the Golden Wheel Spider in that it doesn't build a web but instead walks the jungle floor at night looking for prey. 5. The Bolas Spider The Bolas Spider might just be one of the most remarkable we've ever discovered. One of its superpowers is the ability to lure moth species by mimicking the pheromones they give off. Even more incredible is the fact that the spiders are able to change the blend of pheromone through the night as a way to attract the species that are active at different times. Pretty advanced, don’t you think? 4. The Funnel Web Spider The Funnel Web Spider can be found in Australia, and as most animals from there, it is anything but average. At least, its lair isn’t. If you happen to be in the humid forest regions of the east coast and highlands of Australia or maybe even in the drier open forests of the Western Slopes, be sure to look down. 3. The Goliath Bird-Eating Tarantula With a leg span about the size of a dinner plate, (more than 12 inches), the Goliath Bird Eating Spider is the second largest spider in the world, after the giant huntsman. These brown spiders have a lot of special hairs called urticating hair covering their bodies which are extremely irritating. They will off these microscopic barbed hairs and aim straight for the eye which is great for defense. 2. The Green Lynx Spider The Green Lynx spider is one of the largest native species of spiders found in the United States. The adult spiders can spit venom up to eight times its body length. The spray tastes bitter and irritates the human eye, as people have shared from experience. When a World War II era soldier described seeing one of these spiders, it actually sprayed him in the eyes and cause impaired vision. 1. Fringed Jumping Spider The Fringed Jumping Spider is a skilled hunter from Australia with several superpowers. For one, they are able to leap up to 50 times their own body length! Found in habitats ranging from the Savannah Woodland to the rain forest, these spiders make their webs among rocks, in bark or foliage.

Spanish Invasion of Britain Following the execution of Mary Queen of Scots in 1587, King Philip II of Spain sent his armada to invade England the following year as punishment, and for power and political reasons... Launched in August of 1588, the ‘fortunate fleet', set sail with 150 ships and 30,000 men, and was the largest fleet ever seen in Europe… which many believed to be unbeatable. 9. The War of 1812 If you can remember back to history class, the War of 1812 was mostly the result of British sanctions against the US trading with the French and the Spanish. It officially began when American troops attacked Canada and burned some governmental buildings. In response, the British retaliated and chose to attack Washington D.C, which at the time was practically undefended. 8. Mongol Invasion of Japan In the year 1281, the Mongol Yuan dynasty led their second attempt to invade Japan. With a force comprising of almost 4,500 ships and 140,000 troops, their power seemed insurmountable, and they planned on overwhelming the Japanese into submission. 7. New Moore Island The rising sea levels due to global warming are having a noticeable impact on the geography of the planet, but in one case it prevented an escalating conflict between India and Bangladesh. For almost 3 decades they had laid claim to a stretch of land in the Bay of Bengal called New Moore Island. 6. Persian Invasion of Greece During the 5th century BC, the Persian Kings Darius and Xerxes sent huge armadas of warships into the Aegean with the aim of adding mainland Greece to their empire, but despite three major attempts to do so, the weather always seemed to get in the way. 5. The Battle of Poltava The battle of Poltava between Russia and Sweden marked the end of Sweden's position as a major power, and led to Russia taking control of eastern Europe… and it was all because of another freezing winter. Sweden's Charles XII had failed to lead his army to Moscow during an attempted invasion of Russia, and by the winter of 1708 found himself running low on supplies while moving south towards Ukraine. 4. France's Invasion of Ireland In 1796, while at war with Britain, the French navy was sent to conquer Ireland… a plan that went horrendously wrong. The idea was to take advantage of increasing unrest within the population with how the country was being run, and to work together with the United Irishmen to put further pressure on Britain. 3. French Invasion of Russia France's most famous leader, Napoleon, took control in 1799 and went on to take over much of Europe through a series of impressive military victories. Czar Alexander I of Russia was a thorn in his side, though, and Napoleon saw no choice but to invade Russia in 1812 to teach him a lesson… a decision that would be one of the biggest mistakes he ever made. 2. The First Battle of Fort Fisher The first battle of Fort Fisher was a naval siege that took place between December 23rd and 27th in 1864 when federal forces tried to take the fort that guarded Wilmington in North Carolina. It was the South's last Atlantic port of significance, but on this occasion, it wasn't destined to be captured. 1. Black Monday The 100 years war was a series of battles between English and French troops that took place over a 116 year period between 1337 and 1453. It started because of a dispute over the rightful ruler of France and saw countless skirmishes between the two sides.

Cave of the Jaguar God The Maya city of Chichén Itzá is one of the most renowned ancient sites in Mexico, but even though it’s been known about and explored for a long time, it continues to provide surprises. In 2018, researchers were trying to look for a sacred well beneath the city, but instead found a series of caves, known as Balamku, which contained more than 150 ritual objects that had laid untouched for more than 1000 years. 9. The Longest Salt Cave Researchers have recently announced the discovery of the longest known salt cave in the world… one that starts at the southern tip of the dead sea in Israel, and extends more than 6 miles in length. Malham cave is about 2 miles longer than the previous record holder and, like other salt caves, is full of rare and unusual features. 8. An Ancient Casino For as long as humans have lived in communities, they’ve played games with one another- often applying stakes to the outcome. A discovery in Utah in 2015 shows that even as far as 800 years ago, gambling was a popular pastime. Probably even much further back than that. 7. Mysterious Fish The dark, humid, and gaseous environments inside caves allow for the evolution of unusual creatures unlike anywhere else, and they can be great places to discover new species. An expedition into a remote cave in northern Vietnam found one of the weirdest ever- a previously unknown type of fish. 6. Ice Age Remains So much can be learned about earth’s history by studying the fossil record, but bones don’t preserve very well in tropical environments, which has left a number of gaps in what we know. One area, in particular, that’s devoid of data is Central America during the late Pleistocene period, but a recent discovery has changed all of that. 5. Rhino Cave The Tsodilo Hills, located in Botswana, Africa are a UNESCO world heritage site that’s home to more than 4,500 rock paintings. People have lived in the region for thousands of years, and new artworks are continually being found across the Female Hill, the Child Hill, and the Male Hill. 4. New Human Species In early 2019 it was announced that the remains of a previously unknown species of human were found in a cave in the Philippines. Tests on the bones have shown that they lived in southeast Asia around 50,000 years ago, were four feet tall, had curved fingers and toes, and were able to climb up trees and walk on two feet. 3. The Lupercale According to legend, Rome was founded by Romulus and Remus- twin brothers who had been raised by wolves. The myth also says that there was a cave, known as the Lupercale, where a female wolf nursed them, and now researchers claim to have found its location. 2. The World’s First Winery After a long day, there's nothing quite like being able to sit back and relax with a glass of wine, but this is hardly a newfound enjoyment… as researchers investigating a cave in Armenia found the world's oldest known winemaking equipment, which was more than 5,500 years old! 1. The Missing Fleet of Egypt So much has been discovered of the ancient Egyptian empire, but for a long time, there was a mystery that divided historians. Carved into the walls of a temple at Deir el-Bahri were images of a fleet of cargo ships returning from the land of Punt. Some believed this mystical place was inland, or a fictitious place, while others truly thought they were a more accurate depiction of a grand sea voyage that took place.

Antarctic Icefish The Antarctic icefish was first caught off the coast of Bouvet Island in 1927 by a biologist named Ditlef Rustad. He named it the crocodile fish due to its long, toothed snout and protruding jaw. The large-eyed species, which was white in some parts and transparent in others, had no scales. 7. Thorny Devil Like many other unique and dramatic species, the thorny devil is endemic to Australia. It lives mostly in the arid shrubland and desert of the central region of the country. It’s also known as the mountain devil, thorny lizard, thorny dragon, and moloch. It has all kinds of nicknames because it makes an impression on people! 6. Hagfish The next time you’re having a bad day, be glad you’re not a hagfish. They’re reputed for being the ugliest creatures in the sea. (Although it might be a tie between the hagfish and the blobfish, what do you think? Let me know in the comments!! The hagfish’s strange appearance isn’t the only mysterious thing about it. 5. Florida Softshell Turtle This is a mid-sized species native to the southeastern United States. It dwells in freshwater habitats, including ponds, lakes, swamps, marshes, and even drainage ditches. This mostly aquatic species is known for its efficient digging and tunneling skills, as well as its ability to move swiftly on land - for a turtle, that is. 4. Chevrotain The chevrotain, also called the mouse deer, resembles a strange mix of a deer, mouse, and pig- with super creepy fangs!!. However, it is technically none of the three. While the chevrotain shares a suborder with deer, it is not a “true deer,” and is classified as its own family, known as Tragulidae. 3. Ocean Sunfish Mola mola, known more commonly as the ocean sunfish, is the largest of all bony fish. Its appearance has been described as a “big, floating blob” that “seems like only half a fish.” It developed this bullet-like shape because its back fin never grows after birth, but folds into itself creating a rudder. 2. Gharial The gharial, also called the gavial, is related to crocodiles and alligators. It spends most of its time underwater and is only found in the rivers of northern India, and Nepal. This huge crocodilian grows between 12 and 15 feet long (3.6 m- 4.5 m) and weighs up to 2,000 pounds (907 kg). 1. Leafy Sea Dragon The leafy sea dragon can easily be mistaken for an aquatic plant, but it’s actually a fish. With leaf-like appendages that enable it to blend perfectly among the seaweed and kelp of its natural habitat, the leafy sea dragon is considered one of the most ornately camouflaged creatures on the planet.

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Although Ian Fleming is most famous as the creator of James Bond, he wrote another book that would become a cult sensation too- Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Starring Dick Van Dyke, it was about a crazy inventor who rebuilt his family’s car, and the story he told them of a villainous baron who wanted the car for himself. 8. Lotus Esprit Of all the cars that have been used in James Bond movies, the most iconic was the Lotus Esprit S1 sports car that was in The Spy Who Loved Me.

Shaggin’ Wagon The Farrelly brothers are renowned in the world of comedic movies, but the one that first made a name for them was Dumb and Dumber, which starred Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels. They played Lloyd and Harry, two rather un-intelligent , but fun-loving men, who had a van that Harry used for his dog grooming job. 5. 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse 2001’s The Fast and the Furious spawned a franchise that so far has included 9 movies, and while it’s featured a number of high profile names, the true stars, at least in the beginning, were the cars. In particular, the iconic Kawasaki Green 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse that was driven by Paul Walker’s character. 4. General Lee The Dukes of Hazard was a tv show that ran between 1979 and 1985 and went on for a movie adaptation as well. Following the adventures of the Duke boys, one of the most recognizable parts of the show was its car, the General Lee. It was an orange 1969 Dodge Charger, with a confederate flag on the roof and a horn that played the first 12 notes of the song ‘Dixie'. 3. Jurassic Park Jeep Jurassic Park was the highest-grossing movie of 1993 because of its ingenious story and cutting edge special effects, and led to a number of sequels, spin-offs, and countless items of merchandise. For car lovers, the original movie had two in particular that were solidified in history… the Ford Explorer tour vehicles that ran along electric tracks, and the Jeep Wrangler staff vehicles. 2. ECTO-1 When Ghostbusters was released in 1984, nothing like it had ever been seen before and it catapulted the lead actors into stardom… but without ECTO-1 to drive around New York, calls to the emergency line might well have gone unanswered. 1. DeLorean The DeLorean time machine car from Back to the Future is arguably the most recognizable car from any movie ever made. Based on a DMC DeLorean, which was the only model the company ever made, very little was changed for the production of the movies apart from the style of the hood and the wheels.

Check out the Most AMAZING Recent SpaceX Achievements! From the latest spacex hopper and falcon 9 to elon musk sending a tesla on a rocket in space, this top 10 list of incredible space missions done by spacex will amaze you!

Falcon 1 SpaceX’s most notable accomplishments date back to 2008 with the successful launch of the Falcon 1, a privately-funded $90 million liquid fuel rocket. In September of that year, the Falcon 1 launch vehicle became the first privately funded and developed liquid-propelled carrier rocket to reach Earth orbit, finally succeeding on its fourth attempt with a dummy payload. 7. SpaceX Grasshopper As part of its efforts to develop a rapidly reusable rocket, SpaceX built the Grasshopper, a 10-story reusable rocket prototype. Put simply, Grasshopper was the first stage of SpaceX’s Falcon 9 project which I will tell you more about in a bit. First announced in 2011, the Grasshopper went on for 2 years and was part of the bigger vision of being able to create a reusable system that would fly cargo and people to space, and then back again. 6. Falcon 9 As promised! One huge mission of SpaceX is the development of fully and rapidly reusable rockets. Building a rocket is where the bulk of the launch costs associated with it are incurred, because most rockets are expendable. Designing a reusable rocket will help reduce the costs associated with traveling into space, hopefully eventually assisting with the goal of enabling people to live on other planets. 5. First Rocket Booster Landing In keeping with its goal of rocket reusability, SpaceX began attempting rocket booster landings in early 2015 with its Falcon 9 rocket boosters. The booster slammed into a drone ship and erupted into flames following the first landing attempt in January of that year. A second attempt was made in April and was nearly successful, but tipped over and exploded. 4. Falcon Heavy The Falcon Heavy is a heavy-lift launch vehicle. By a factor of two, it’s the most powerful operational rocket in the world. It has the highest payload capacity of any launch vehicle that is currently operational and the second-highest capacity of any rocket that has ever reached orbit. The Saturn V, which was last flown in 1973, was the only rocket to ever deliver more payload to orbit. 3. Landing the 3 Falcon Heavy Rocket Boosters On the Falcon Heavy’s second voyage in April of this year, SpaceX managed to land all three of its rocket boosters for the first time. The rocket’s two outer cores landed on SpaceX’s two concrete pads near the launch site at Cape Canaveral, Florida. The two side boosters descended back to Earth almost simultaneously, creating two sonic booms as they executed their final burn. 2. Crew Dragon In March 3 of this year, the SpaceX Crew Dragon, also known as the Dragon 2, made history. Crew Dragon completed its first test mission to the International Space Station. Before that, in 2012, the Dragon cargo spacecraft made history when it became the first private spacecraft to dock autonomously with the International Space Station (ISS). Since then, the Dragon continues to carry cargo to the ISS. 1. Public-Private Partnership Perhaps one of the biggest achievements of SpaceX, and space exploration in general, is the ongoing partnership between government organizations such as NASA, and the company, which is privately owned. SpaceX’s relationship with US government agencies began in 2005, when the company was awarded an Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity, or IDIQ, contract allowing the Air Force to purchase up to $100 million of launches.

Ancient Weapon-Making Site A new Russian military base might seem like an unlikely place to discover ancient weaponry, but this is exactly what was discovered recently on an Arctic island. Even more curious, the ancient weapon-making site just happened to be found next to the remains of a woolly mammoth. As construction began on the base, workers started finding all kinds of bones so they called in paleontologists. 9. World Trade Center Shipwreck When archaeologists were monitoring the excavation of the former World Trade Center site, the discovery of an ancient sailing ship underneath baffled researchers. Located 22 feet below street level, the ancient ship was discovered in what is now an underground security department complex. 8. Ancient Scottish Home In the shadow of a 21st-century building site, one of Scotland’s earliest homes was uncovered. Dating from the Mesolithic period, all that remains of the 10,000-year-old home is a large oval pit measuring nearly 7m in length, along with hearths, flint and arrowheads. So not too shabby for 10,000 years ago! 7. Black Death Skeletons While conducting excavation work for a $14.8 billion rail project in England, workers stumbled upon some skeletons. Luckily they weren’t recent!! Archaeologists were called in and they determined that the skeletons were not just average citizens. They are believed to be some of the 50,000 victims of the Plague to have been buried in a local cemetery in the 14th century. 6. Ancient Maya Ball Court During excavation for a housing development in the Yucatán, construction workers discovered something a little strange, and called in archaeologists. Now, the housing development will have to be modified, and if you get a house there, you’ll be living right next to history! They had discovered a 2,500-year-old court used for a ball game played by the Ancient Mayans. 5. Ancient Whale Species At a construction site in Southern California, workers were in for a surprise when they found gigantic bones. Scientists discovered 11 ancient whale species, including 4 new species. During roadwork in 2000 near Los Angeles, construction crews uncovered whale fossils that were thought to be around 17 to 19 million years old. 4. Mass Burial Site When road crews were digging in Pennsylvania a few years ago, they didn't expect to uncover a mass grave containing human bones. Historians believe the remains belonged to people who died from the Spanish influenza in 1918. 3. Greenwich Village Crypt When workers were digging near New York's Iconic Washington Square Park to install a water main, a number of crypts housing coffins and human bones were discovered. 2. Old Town Alexandria Ancient Ship While excavating in preparation for a new hotel construction, workers near the Potomac River found a ship believed to have run aground in the late 1700’s. The partial hull of the ship was found on the same bock where workers found the 1755 foundation from a warehouse thought to be the city’s first public building. 1. Ancient Tomb in Israel In the autumn of 2015, Israeli officials reported that a group of contractors had discovered a Roman-era sarcophagus. However, the news does not end there. When the 1800-year-old coffin was excavated during construction of a new neighborhood, they used a tractor to rip it from its burial place. The workers, for some unknown reason then hid their discovery behind boards and sheet metal.

Acheri The Acheri is a demon from Hindu and Native American mythology that brings illness upon the defenseless, especially children. Rather than being a hideous creature, she's the ghost of a young girl who died a painful from a disease, and it's this innocence that gets sympathy from adults and children. Once they get too close, though, she infects them and they, too, meet a grisly demise. 9. Grootslang The Grootslang, which translates to mean the ‘big snake', is a giant reptile that lives in a deep, dark cave in Richtersveld in South Africa. It's said to be as old as the world itself and was created by the gods. New to creating creatures, the gods made a mistake with the Grootslang, though, and gave it incredible strength, cunning, and intellect. 8. Camazotz The Camazotz comes from ancient Maya mythology, and translates to mean ‘bat’. It was the vampire bat god who was usually depicted holding a victim and a knife. He ruled the twilight, and the Maya were terrified of him and his vengeful behavior. 7. Ogopogo Ogopogo is one of the world's most famous lake monsters and supposedly lives in Lake Okanagan in Canada. The legend first originated in Native Canadian legends, which spoke of a deadly creature called N'ha-a-itk, which would demand a sacrifice from travelers trying to traverse the lake. This meant that, for centuries, people would take small animals like chickens with them, so they could them and drop them in the water to guarantee a safe crossing. 6. Hecatoncheires In Greek mythology, the Hecatoncheires were huge creatures whose name means ‘hundred handed ones’. As the name would suggest they had one hundred hands, and they also had 50 heads each. The children of the Titans Uranus and Gaia, there were three of them- Briareus the sea goat, Cottus the striker, and Gyges the big limbed. The Hecatoncheires were associated by the Greeks with earthquakes and tidal waves and were thought to be the causes of these events. 5. Nian In Chinese mythology, a Nian was a fierce beast that lived under the sea or in the mountains that would, at the beginning of every year, emerge from its hiding place to feed on people and animals, with a particular fondness for hunting children. 4. Aqrabuamelu The legend of the mysterious Aqrabuamelu comes from ancient Babylonian mythology, in which numerous tales spoke of these scorpion men who guarded Shamesh, the god of sun, truth, justice, and healing. They had the head, arms, and torso of a human, and the lower body of a scorpion. 3. Bulgasari Pulgasari is probably the most famous movie to have been made in North Korea-and is apparently also very popular in Japan. And not just because of its blatant copying of Godzilla, but because the director was allegedly kidnapped by the secretive state in order to get it made. But, as with many movies, the plot is based on an ancient Korean legend of a terrible monster called the Bulgasari. 2. Basilisk The Basilisk is a creature that appears in Greek and Roman folklore and was a deadly reptilian beast that was born from an old egg that was hatched under the full moon on a dunghill. There are various descriptions of what it looked like, but the more common ones state it as having the face of a or a human in agonizing pain, with the wings and feet of a bird, and the tail of a snake. Coats of armor that feature the Basilisk tend to show it in this form. 1. Isonade The Isonade, whose name means ‘beach stroker', is a shark-like monster that lived in coastal waters around Japan- according to Japanese legend. Said to be absolutely gigantic in size, their fins are covered in metallic barbs which they use to hook their prey and drag into the ocean.

Odaiba Odaiba is a manmade island in Tokyo Bay located across the Rainbow Bridge from central Tokyo. Today, it’s a popular, “ultramodern” residential, shopping, and entertainment district. 7. Donauinsel Located in central Vienna, Austria, Donauinsel is a long, narrow island between the Danube River and “New Danube,” a parallel excavated channel. It’s 13.1 miles (21.1 km) long and between 230 and 689 feet (70-210 meters) wide at various parts. 6. Country Garden Forest City Malaysia’s Forest City is a planned series of four artificial islands located in the Tebrau Strait, adjacent to Singapore. The ambitious $100 billion project is currently under development. One of its biggest aims is to create an “eco-smart city of the future” that will hopefully house 700,000 people by the year 2050. 5. Hulhumalé Hulhumalé is a reclaimed island located in the south of North Malé Atoll, Maldives, that was built to accommodate the country’s exploding population. Reclamation began in 1997 and the island was officially inaugurated in 2004. Development is currently in its second phase. 4. Songdo Built on reclaimed land from the Yellow Sea along the waterfront of Incheon, South Korea, the Songdo International Business District is what’s known as a “smart city.” From the outside looking in, it encompasses all the trappings of a modern, sustainable, high-tech lifestyle. 3. Willingdon Island Willingdon Island is one of India’s largest artificial islands. It’s located near the country’s southwestern tip in the state of Kerala and forms part of the city of Kochi. To create Willingdon Island, soil was dredged from the Lake of Kochi and used to expand a small, previously existing natural island. 2. Sabah Al Ahmad Sea City Named after Sabah Al Ahmad, the emir of Kuwait who came to power in 2006, Sabah Al Ahmad Sea City is a planned community that will purportedly contain housing for 250,000 residents upon its completion. The multibillion dollar city will be roughly the size of Manhattan and will contain 120 miles (200 km) of artificial shoreline, courtesy of newly-constructed canals. 1. East Lantau Metropolis In the eyes of the Hong Kong Institute of Surveyors (HKIS), an artificial island is a necessary step toward resolving Hong Kong’s increasingly serious overpopulation problem. Hong Kong is already about as jam-packed as a place can get, with some people even living in “cage homes,” which are essentially bunk beds surrounded by chicken wire.

Lacewing Research that looked at 35 amber samples from Myanmar, France, and Lebanon, found evidence that not only were lacewings alive during the time of the dinosaurs, but they also were the first species that we know of, to use camouflage for both attack and defense. 9. Bed Bugs They can be a real annoyance to us as we sleep, but it turns out that bed bugs have been around for more than 100 million years, and began to thrive while the dinosaurs still roamed the earth. 8. Damselflies Damselflies are closely related to dragonflies, but a little smaller and narrower… and a recent discovery in 2017 showed that they were prevalent during the time of the dinosaurs around 100 million years ago. Encased within a lump of amber that was found in Burma, were three specimens. Each of them is male and, unusually, have their tibias in an expanded position. 7. Manipulator Modificaputis During the time of the dinosaurs, it wasn't just the reptiles that grew to be big and scary, but the bugs did too. One of the creepiest is known as the Manipulator Modificaputis, which was a predatory cockroach that first emerged around 100 million years ago. 6. Thrips The lower Cretaceous period, while usually spoken about in relation to dinosaurs, was also the time that flowering plants began to develop. Pollinators thrived, and were crucial to the flowers' ability to reproduce… and one of the early species that performed this role is known as thrips. 5. Fleas If you've ever been around fleas, you'll know how annoying they can be… but imagine them being ten times the size, with an equally as big bite and thirst for blood, and that's what the dinosaurs had to face on a daily basis. 4. Mosquitoes Mosquitoes are one of the largest causes of human fatalities throughout the world because of the diseases that they carry, with some estimates suggesting as many as 400,000 people die each year because of malaria alone. Their annoyance hasn't simply been since we've been around, though, and a discovery announced in early 2019 suggests that their impact hasn't changed much in 100 million years, even if the species have. 3. Beetles When studying fossils of prehistoric creatures, paleontologists often identify bite marks and blemishes on the bones, but it was only in 2008 that a culprit for the indentations was uncovered. A report, released by a researcher at Brigham Young University- Idaho, looked closely at the remains of a Camptosaurus that had died around 148 million years ago. 2. Ticks Ticks are another species that we're all too familiar with today, but also bugged the dinosaurs tens of millions of years ago. A collector in Burma found a lump of amber in 2017 that contained one that appears to be entangled with a feather, and it's teaching scientists a lot about how they lived. 1. Armored Spiders Arachnophobia is quite common in people today, and while there's no evidence to suggest dinosaurs were afraid of spiders, fossils have been found of eight-legged beasts that were as scary as any alive today. Two species were found in amber from a northern mine in Myanmar as well, and are covered in strange features, unlike anything that had been seen before.

Rusalka A rusalka is a mythical Slavic water nymph resembling a beautiful young woman, similarly to a Greek siren or a Celtic mermaid. Rusalki have long hair and a ghost-like appearance, owing to their translucent skin. 7. Selkies The word “selkie” means “seal” in the Orcadian dialect of Orkney, Scotland. According to legend, the selkie-folk, or “seal people,” are commonly sighted in the area near the shore, as seals with their heads bobbing above the water, displaying uncannily human-like eyes. They appear along mermaids and sirens as sea dwelling folk in Scotland, Ireland, the Faroe Islands, and Iceland. 6. Merrow The merrow is the female version of an Irish mermaid. Merrows have long, green hair and wear a special cap that enables them to live underwater and travel along currents. It is believed the cap is red and covered with feathers. 5. Finfolk Like the selkies, stories of the Finfolk come from the Orkney and Shetland Islands in Scotland. They are dark and gloomy sorcerers that would emerge from the water and depending on how they felt, they could punish people with terrible storms or keep the seas calm. 4. Mami Wata Mami Wata, or Mother Water, is a beautiful and seductive water spirit celebrated through much of Africa. She’s a highly-respected deity who is often represented as a mermaid, a snake charmer, and sometimes both. She is often shown like most mermaids, with the bottom half of a fish and the upper half of a woman. 3. Iara Iara is Brazil’s “Lady of the Lake.” She hails from an Amazon-dwelling tribe and is the daughter of the tribe’s spiritual leader. She’s beautiful, kind, strong, and a magnificent warrior - and started her life as a human. Unfortunately, Iara’s two brothers disliked her, mainly out of jealousy as her powers made them feel overshadowed. 2. Marakihau Marakihau is the legendary mermaid of New Zealand Maori folklore. She has a dark complexion and seal-like skin. Her thick hair resembles kelp. Perhaps Marakihau’s most distinctive feature is her dark tail, which is said to be transparent like a “stormy ocean” or the inside of a mussel shell. To give you an idea, the interior of a common mussel shell contains green, violet, and/or blue tints, and is opalescent. 1. Melusine Melusine is found in many medieval European folklore tales. She is a half-human, half-serpent feminine entity who is the spirit of fresh water. In some representations, Melusine has two tails. Believe it or not, she’s even the inspiration of the modern-day Starbucks logo.

AKHEKH Akhekh, also known as Akhekhu, was a four-legged dragon with a long, serpentine body that resided in remote corners of Egypt, particularly in the fringe deserts and wastelands near the fertile Nile valley. According to some ancient Egyptian records, Akhekh was believed to be associated with the deity Set/Seth. 7. BAKUNAWA In Filipino mythology, Bakunawa was a monstrous, snake-like dragon that periodically attempted to swallow the moon, causing lunar eclipses. Bakunawa was a god, according to some variations of the myth, and an adversary of the gods in some other versions. The creature’s history is long and complex, and varies based on different regions of the Philippines. 6. NIDHOGG Nidhogg was a fierce dragon who chewed at the roots of an ash tree called Yggdrasil (ig-drasil) which supported the nine realms of Norse mythology. He was intent on destroying peace and virtue and he ruled over criminals, and was therefore sometimes appropriately called the “Malice Striker.” 5. DRUK The druk is a highly-respected, elaborately-scaled dragon hailing from Bhutanese and Tibetan mythology. According to legend, the lightning flashes of the large and violent thunderstorms that are common in the Himalayan valley represent dragonfire. 4. FAFNIR In Norse mythology, Fafnir was a great dragon that started out as a mere dwarf who was known for his brave soul and strong right arm. He was the son of a dwarf king named Hreidmar, who demanded compensation for the loss of one of his sons in gold from the god Odin. 3. KUKULCAN This feathered serpent god was one of the most important mythological beings of ancient Mesoamerica and went by a few names. The Maya called him Kukulcan. To the Aztecs, he was Quetzalcoatl. The K'iche', a Maya group located in modern-day Guatemala, referred to him as Gukumatz. 2. KUR Kur’s origins lie within Mesopotamian and Sumerian mythology. He was an underworld deity that lived in the empty space between the earth’s crust and the sea, and corresponded roughly to the Hebrew Leviathan and the Babylonian Tiamat. This dragon was dark, gigantic, and scaly, with massive wings. 1. TYPHON The mightiest and deadliest monster of Greek mythology was Typhon, who was created by his parents Gaia and Tartarus as a last-ditch effort to repel Olympian gods from defeating the Titans. Gaia also wanted to punish Zeus for imprisoning her Titan children.

Maya Structures, Guatemala Just last year in 2018, following a large scale survey in northern Guatemala, more than 60,000 previously unknown Maya structures were discovered. Among the finds were farms, houses, defenses, and more than 60 miles of roads and waterways that connected the cities. 9. Kemune Palace As climate change continues to affect the weather around the world, archaeologists are taking advantage of falling water levels to uncover long lost structures. One of the most impressive sites that have been recently revealed was in the Mosul Dam reservoir in Iraq. 8. Egyptian Burial Sites In early 2019, researchers announced an incredible discovery in the river Nile Delta where they found a series of ancient tombs that dated back to the Second Intermediate Period between 1782 and 1570 BCE. In total there were 20 burial sites in the Kom al-Kholgan site, which is about 87 miles north of Cairo. 7. Tušhan, Turkey In early 2018, construction of the Ilisu dam on the river Tigris in southeast Turkey was completed, and since then more than 115 square miles of land was flooded, which resulted in the loss of 500 archaeological sites, and the displacement of more than 70,000 people. 6. Iron Age Settlements, Scotland Scotland is used to it raining, but in 2018 a drought changed things so much that a series of ancient sites were uncovered. Since the 1930s, authorities have conducted aerial surveys of the landscape, and the images that were taken following the drought showed some interesting developments. 5. Lake Titicaca Between the 5th and 12th centuries AD, the Tiwanaku empire took hold in the Lake Titicaca basin near where Bolivia and Peru are today. It's a unique quirk of geological formation, which has created an inland sea that's more than 12,000 feet above sea level and was the perfect site for the civilization to establish itself. When the Spanish invaded there are believed to have been around 1 million inhabitants. 4. Lagunita and Tamchen, Mexico Dense forests across Mexico are difficult enough to travel through, let alone discover ancient structures, so it’s not always easy to find new sites. But recently, 2 large Maya towns have been revealed in the Calakmul Biosphere Reserve, called Lagunita and Tamchen. 3. Mammoth Kill Site, Austria In 2018, archaeologists announced the discovery of a particularly gruesome site in Drasenhofen, Austria that was dated to between 18 and 28 thousand years ago… a stone age site that was full of the remains of mammoths and other large animals. 2. Tenea, Greece According to Greek legend, following the destruction of Troy, a group of Trojan prisoners went on to found a new city called Tenea. While the location of Troy has long been known, Tenea has avoided discovery… until, that is, a discovery that happened in 2018. 1. Hidden Aztec Temple In September of 2017, a 7.1 magnitude earthquake struck central Mexico and, along with killing 369 people, it caused serious damage to buildings and structures across the region. As a part of learning the extent to which it had damaged sites, archaeologists were scanning a pyramid when they discovered a temple hidden inside it.

BATMAN OF MOSCOW Moscow’s Batman wasn’t the first person to impersonate the caped crusader, but he may deserve the title as the toughest - or, perhaps, the craziest. I don’t know, I’ll tell you, and then you can decide! In 2016, the mysterious man, who called himself the Grim Reaper (so, not Batman), declared war on Russian drug lords and gangs in the Khimki area outside of Moscow. 7. THE DARK GUARDIAN By day, Staten Islander Chris Pollack is a professional martial artist and instructor, but for over a decade, he moonlighted as the Dark Guardian, a real-life superhero in a homemade black and red leather costume, intent on taking on the Big Apple’s seedy underworld. 6. CRIMSON FIST & META DATA This husband-and-wife crime-fighting team, who called themselves the Crimson Fist and Meta Data, began patrolling the streets of Atlanta’s Castleberry Hill neighborhood together in 2006. Wearing masks and bodysuits, the couple spent more than seven years cleaning up the community by picking up litter, confronting petty criminals, and helping those in need. 5. NYX Chris Pollack isn’t the only New Yorker concerned with keeping his beloved city’s streets safe. Instead of focusing on fighting crime, however, this superhero concentrated on assisting the homeless and making the community a better place in general. 4. THE STATESMAN Mild-mannered British banker Scott Cooke spent four nights a week as the Statesman, dressed in a Union Jack shirt and a Zorro-like mask, and keeping a lookout on the streets of Birmingham, England. The Statesman kept his identity hidden for a long time, even telling his girlfriend that he was out playing poker when he was actually on patrol. 3. PHOENIX JONES When crime appeared to be on the rise in his Seattle neighborhood, MMA fighter Ben Fodor became Phoenix Jones, a superhero who wore a bulletproof vest with stab-proof plates and carried a collection of non-lethal weapons for protection. His first outing didn’t go as planned - he pursued a mugger who got away. 2. GEIST Safety patrols and charity events are the name of this superhero’s game. Geist operates out of Rochester, Minnesota and rose to stardom as one of the key spokespersons of the real-life superhero movement. Wearing a costume he describes as “green space-cowboy chic,” he loves visiting kids at the local Ronald McDonald House and telling them all about his adventures as a superhero. 1. THANATOS One Vancouver, British Columbia man was inspired to become a superhero after a conversation with a police officer, who said that homeless people “had nothing better to look forward to than Origins Explained is the place to be to find all the answers to your questions, from mysterious events and unsolved mysteries to everything there is to know about the world and its amazing animals!

Buddha’s Tooth Siddhārtha Buddha reached ‘Maha-pari-nirvana’ and left this Earth (or more simplistically died) around 483 at the age of 80. It was believed that he passed away from food poisoning and was cremated in northeast India on a pyre of sandalwood. Before the process was complete, Buddha’s disciples began arguing over who would keep portions of his ashes and bones. 7. The Foundation Stone The Foundation Stone forms the foundation for Temple Mount, also known as the Noble Sanctuary - a place in Jerusalem that is considered highly sacred by the religions of Islam, Judaism, and Christianity. At first glance, the Foundation Stone is nothing more than a slab of limestone. However, for centuries, this seemingly inconsequential stone slab has been the site of much warfare, controversy, and debate. 6. Charlemagne’s Magic Love Ring During his reign, it is said Charlemagne fell so deep in love with a German princess, that he forgot to take care of himself, and affairs of state. It was as if the typically bloodthirsty and well-groomed emperor had become bewitched by a supernatural force. Legend goes that a snake had gifted the King a diamond and he had it made into a ring for his princess. 5. Blood of St. Januarius St. Januarius was a bishop of Beneventum in Italy who died a martyr around the year 305 AD. To this day, a preserved relic of his dried blood is kept in a sealed glass ampoule in the Cathedral of Naples, where he is the patron saint. On three separate annual occasions, the blood liquefies on its own while thousands of spectators gather at the cathedral to witness the miracle firsthand. 4. The Fairy Flag of Dunvegan The most precious treasure of the Clan MacLeod of Scotland is its Fairy Flag. By all appearances, the tattered, faded-brown silk flag, which is on display in the drawing room at Dunvegan Castle on the Isle of Skye, doesn’t seem like much. Its history, however, proves otherwise. And remember, looks are often deceiving, especially when it comes to historical artifacts. 3. Our Lady of Guadalupe This relic continues to baffle scientists, despite being the subject of extensive studies and evaluations since 1751. In Mexico in 1531, Mary reportedly appeared several times to a 57-year-old Aztec peasant named Juan Diego. Proof of his vision was imprinted on his cactus fiber cloak, or “tilma,” and the image came to be known as “The Miraculous Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe.” 2. The Lia Fail Stone Ancient Irish kings were crowned at the Lia Fail, also known as the Coronation Stone, which is located on the Hill of Tara in County Meath, Ireland. According to Irish folklore, whenever a king of true Irish or Scottish descent stood or sat on the stone, it shouted joyfully. 1. The Cloak of Muhammed The most prized relic of the Islamic religion is located in Kandahar, Afghanistan, at Kharka Sharif, or the Shrine of the Cloak of the Prophet Muhammad - one of the country’s holiest places of worship. It ended up there while in the possession of Ahmad Shah Durrani, the first king of the Afghan state. Juan Diego tilma statue niche San Juan Capistrano Basilica by Pamla J.

Burro Schmidt Tunnel Located in Copper Mountain in the Mojave Desert’s El Paso Range in California, the half-mile-long Burro Schmidt Tunnel was carved by hand starting in 1902 by William “Burro” H. Schmidt. He was a gold miner who needed a passage through the mountains to transport his ore. 7. Dupont Circle Tunnels In Washington, DC, nearly a mile of deserted tunnels make up the abandoned underground trolley line known as the Dupont Underground. It’s located underneath the busy streets of Dupont Circle and was built in 1949. In 1962, the trolley system was shut down and replaced with buses, as plans for the Metro subway system were in the works. 6. Clinton Railroad Tunnel The now-abandoned Clinton Railroad Tunnel was once the longest in Massachusetts. It was built during the early 1900’s along the Nashua River for the Boston and Maine Railroad as part of a rerouting plan that came along with the construction of the Wachusett Reservoir. 5. The Belmont Tunnel The only rail tunnel in the entire state of Nebraska is located in the Pine Ridge area of Dawes County and is known as the Belmont Tunnel. Nebraska only ever had one rail tunnel because it is a mostly-flat state and there was no need for more of them. 4. Moonville Tunnel Once part of the Marietta Cincinnati Railroad, the disused Moonville Tunnel is located in southeastern Ohio in the former mining town of Moonville. It cuts through a section of the Appalachian hillside and was built in 1856. Moonville was just one of hundreds of coal mining boom towns that once dotted the region. 3. Sensabaugh Tunnel Deep along the winding, narrow back roads outside the city center of Kingsport, Tennessee, there’s a tunnel set into what was once a hill. It’s called the Sensabaugh Tunnel and it was built during the 1920’s, when the hill was blasted apart to make way for a roadbend. 2. Twin Tunnels The Twin Tunnels are a set of three tunnels passing beneath a set of railroad tracks in rural Chester County, Pennsylvania. One tunnel carries traffic, another is empty, and a tributary of the Brandywine Creek flows through the third tunnel. The middle tunnel, which traffic passes through, is dark, even during the day. 1. Church Hill Tunnel The Church Hill Tunnel is a sealed train tunnel underneath Jefferson Park in Richmond, Virginia. It was built in 1873 and was already considered obsolete when it was abandoned in 1902. The city of Richmond attempted to reclaim the 4,000-foot-long tunnel in 1925, but a 190-foot section of it collapsed while it was being worked on, as a ten-car locomotive was passing through.

T-Rex In 2005, something that was previously thought to be impossible was found during an archaeological dig in Montana, and it would take 8 years before scientists could explain what had happened. The discovery was a leg fossil of an adolescent T-Rex, but inside it, there was some tissue that was described as being soft, transparent, and flexible. 9. Tail In Amber With only fossils to go by, it's difficult to know exactly what species looked like a long time ago, but a discovery in 2015 helped us get a much better idea! Within a lump of amber that was on sale at a market in Myanmar, was a perfectly preserved prehistoric tail- complete with feathers. 8. Homotherium It had long been thought that Homotherium, a type of saber-toothed cat from Europe, had gone extinct about 300,000 years ago, but analysis of a discovery in 2000 forced researchers to rethink everything. 7. Brachylophosaurus One of the rarest fossils found in recent times was of a Brachylophosaurus canadensis. It was found in a canyon wall in Montana in the year 2000, and it took a demolition crew to fully remove the 18-foot piece of stone from the cliff. Fossils of the 77 million-year-old duck-billed dinosaur are hardly ever found, but this one was even more special because its skin had also fossilized. 6. Hematite Tubes The earth is believed to be around 4.55 billion years old, but a recent discovery has found that it wasn't too long until the first signs of life began to emerge. Very few places on the planet have any rocks that are older than 3 billion years, but the places where some survive are the ideal hunting ground for ancient life. 5. Four Legged Snake The evolutionary history of snakes has long been of interest to researchers- specifically whether they emerged from the oceans without limbs or whether this was an adaptation that developed later on. Fossils to prove one way or another were proving to be elusive, but one discovery that was announced in 2015 changed all that. 4. Protoceratops and Velociraptor One of the most stunning fossils ever to be found was discovered by a team that was looking at white sandstone cliffs in the Gobi desert in southern Mongolia. Dated to around 80 million years ago, it's of two dinosaurs, a Velociraptor, and a Protoceratops, which were fighting each other when they were suddenly buried by a sand flow. 3. Baleen Whale After originally having been found in 1978 and dismissed as unimportant, scientists returned to a fossil 30 years later and realized it was far more significant than was first thought. It had been discovered in a canyon in Palos Verdes in LA and is believed to be about 14 to 16 million years old. 2. Ichthyosaur During the time of the dinosaurs, the oceans were just as dangerous as the land, and one of the most dominant predators to ever swim the seas was the Ichthyosaur. They evolved from land-based lizards who returned to the water around 250 million years ago, and the discovery in China of a fossil has given much clearer details of how they gave birth. 1. Nodosaur In 2011, as a heavy machine operator dug up the ground at the Millenium mine in Alberta, he hit something that was noticeably harder than the surrounding rock. Strange colored lumps of rock started coming out and he realized he had found something unusual… something that turned out to be a very rare type of fossil. 7:04 Eternal struggle by Andrew Everett Licenced under CC BY 2.0 7:40 Balaenoptera musculus (blue whale) 2 by James St. John Licenced under CC BY 2.0 Eubalaena glacialis (North Atlantic right whale) 2 by James St. John Licenced under CC BY 2.0 Origins Explained is the place to be to find all the answers to your questions, from mysterious events and unsolved mysteries to everything there is to know about the world and its amazing animals!

Harpies The Harpies were the minions of Zeus and, as the spirits of sudden, sharp gusts of wind, were sent by him to take things away from the earth. They were blamed by the Greeks when people mysteriously disappeared, and in various myths they were sent by Zeus to seek revenge against those who had disobeyed him. They had the form of birds, but with human faces, and would carry people to the three goddesses known as the Erinyes who were responsible for punishing people. 9. Cerberus Cerberus was the personification of everything the Greeks feared in wild dogs and was the creature responsible for guarding the gates of the underworld. It had three heads, although earlier accounts said it had as many as 100 heads and would prevent the from escaping back into the real world, as well as stopping living people from making their way across the river Styx into the underworld without the permission of Hades. 8. Minotaur The Minotaur is one of the most famous creatures from Greek mythology- having the body of a man, but the head and tail of a bull. It was the offspring of Queen Pasiphae of Crete and a bull and was truly monstrous. King Minos wanted to keep the minotaur hidden, mainly because its sheer existence was a punishment handed out to him by the gods, so he ordered his most trusted craftsmen, Daedalus and his son Icarus, to build a large labyrinth to keep it in. 7. Hydra The Lernaean Hydra lived in Lake Lerna in the region of Argolid and was the offspring of the mother and father of all monsters- Echidna and Typhon (so the sibling of Cerberus). It was a serpent-like beast with many heads, and it was said that if you cut off one of its heads, 2 more would grow back in its place. The head in the middle was immortal, and all of them could spit acid. Its blood was deathly poisonous, and its teeth were believed to be able to raise them. 6. Centaurs Centaurs were, according to Greek mythology, half-human, half-horse creatures that were the children of Ixion, the king of Lapiths, and Nephele, a cloud that had been made in the form of the goddess Hera. They had the body of a horse, and the torso, head, and arms of a man. 5. Cyclops While most creatures from Greek mythology were invented to represent a specific meaning or purpose, recent discoveries have suggested that the ancient Greeks truly believed cyclops to be real. They were one-eyed giants who feature in a number of myths that were probably inspired by the remains of an ancient species of elephant that used to live in Greece and Crete. 4. Charybdis and Scylla In the Odyssey, Odysseus had to sail his ship through the narrow Strait of Messina, but it wasn't just treacherous rocks he had to watch out for because each side was guarded by dangerous monsters… Charybdis and Scylla. 3. Chimaera The Chimaera was another offspring Echidna and Typhon, and sibling to Cerberus and the Hydra. It had the body and head of a lion, a head of a goat that was attached to its back, and a tail that was the head of a snake. The word now means an imaginative creation or a grotesque beast, and to the ancient Greeks, it represented just that. 2. Typhon Now it’s time to meet the parents. Typhon was the father of all monsters, along with his wife Echidna. As you can imagine for someone who spawned the likes of Cerberus, the Hydra, and the Chimaera, he was a mighty beast in his own right. 1. Medusa Undoubtedly the best-known creature from Greek mythology is Medusa, the winged woman with venomous snakes instead of hair. She was one of three gorgons, but unlike her siblings that also included Echidna… Medusa wasn't born a monster.

Túcume, Peru The Lambayeque Valley in northern Peru is home to three separate pyramid cities, with more than 250 pyramids in total. The most stunning of the three is called Túcume and was built from around 800 AD. It covers an area of 540 acres and was a major center of influence for the cultures that ruled the region. 9. Monte d’Accoddi, Sardinia Monte d’Accoddi is located in northern Sardinia and dates to around 6,000 years ago. The original structure on the site is thought to have been built by the Ozieri culture, but following a fire in around 3000 BC, it was covered in earth and stone with large blocks of limestone to form a step pyramid. It evolved to have a platform on top that was accessible by a ramp. 8. Candi Sukuh, Java Candi Sukuh is a temple complex on the slopes of Mount Lawu, a dormant volcano in central Java. It’s thought to have been built in the 15th century by the Hindu Majapahit Empire, but is unlike any other structures they built. It was made with volcanic andesitic rocks and comprises of three terraces, a pyramid, and a series of sculptures. 7. Luxor Hotel, USA There are plenty of standout sights on the Vegas skyline, but by far the most recognizable has to be the Luxor Hotel, a giant black pyramid that's the only one of this size to have been built in modern times. It's three quarters the size of the Great Pyramid of Giza, the inspiration behind it, and when it opened it was the largest building on the strip. 6. Pyramid of Cestius, Italy Following the conquest of Egypt in 30 BC, the Romans became so obsessed with their culture that they even built their own pyramid. Known as the Pyramid of Cestius, the 120-foot tall (36 m) structure was built in Rome at some point between 18 and 12 BC, and was the burial place of a wealthy Roman. 5. El Castillo, Chichen Itza, Mexico Chichen Itza is a Maya city that covers about 4 square miles (10.4 km2) of the south-central Yucatán state of Mexico. Amongst the ruins of temples, houses, and sacrificial pits is one of the most well-known structures of Ancient Mexico, the pyramid called ‘El Castillo’. Also known as the Pyramid of Kukulkan, it was built between the 9th and 12th centuries AD, has a base that’s 181 feet across (55 m) and is 98 feet tall (30 m). 4. The Great Pyramid of Cholula, Mexico From pictures of Mexico’s Pyramid of Cholula, you’d be forgiven for thinking this is just a hill, but what lies beneath the layers of dirt is actually the largest known pyramid in the world. Built by the Aztecs in Puebla, Mexico, its base is four times larger than the pyramid in Giza, and it has almost double the volume. 3. Koh Ker, Cambodia Located around 75 miles away (120 km) from Cambodia’s most famous ancient monument, Angkor Wat is the Koh Ker temple complex. It was the capital of the Khmer empire between 928 and 944 AD and was once home to 10,000 people. More than 180 sanctuaries have been found in the region, but the structure that stands out the most is the 7 tiered pyramid called Prang. 2. Pyramid of the Sun, Teotihuacan, Mexico Teotihuacan is an ancient city about 25 miles (7.6m) to the northeast of Mexico City and is the site of a number of impressive structures from the time. Largest of all is the Pyramid of the Sun, which is 216 feet tall (66m) , and 720 (219m) by 760 feet (232m) at the base. 1. Pyramid of Khufu, Egypt Without a doubt, the most famous, and probably the most impressive pyramid in the world is the Pyramid of Khufu in Giza, Egypt. Standing at 481 feet tall (147 m), its construction was completed in around 2560 BC, and it remained the tallest known man made structure in the world for the following 3,800 years. It still remains the tallest pyramid in the world.

PUSHA AND HER SQUIRRELS Earlier this year, a cat named Pusha adopted four squirrels in southern Crimea’s Bakhchisaray Miniature Park. They were first introduced to each other by local residents. The squirrels were initially afraid of Pusha, according to the park’s staff, but they eventually grew accustomed to her and allowed her to raise them as her own, alongside her own four kittens. 7. MOLLY AND POSS Molly the beagle was distraught after losing her litter of puppies. The grieving mama dog was beside herself with grief for several days. She then met Poss, a baby possum, on the Moyles Gazette cattle farm she lives on in Victoria, Australia. Poss had apparently been abandoned by her mom. 6. AMIRA AND JUNIOR Midway through 2018, a dog named Amira adopted a stray kitten named Junior in war-torn Aleppo, Syria. Amira was pregnant when she was taken in by Mohammed Alaa Aljaleel, the famous ‘Cat Man of Aleppo.’ Aljaleel is a former paramedic who began rescuing stray animals in 2013. Shortly after arriving at his sanctuary, Amir lost her three puppies. 5. ELEPHANTS AND DOGS Thailand’s Elephant Nature Park is a sanctuary for both elephants and dogs, disproving the notion that elephants are afraid of dogs and other misconceptions about the relationship between the two species. The dog program at Elephant Nature Park began after catastrophic floods in Thailand toward the end of 2011 left many dogs homeless. 4. JAMILA AND MEWIE At just one month old, Jamila the rhino was brought to The Rhino Orphanage in the Limpopo province of South Africa with stab wounds in her back. Jamila’s rescuers believe that she was injured while trying to protect her mom from poachers, given her feisty and fearless personality. 3. ROCKET LARRY AND PUKA Rocket Larry the turtle and Puka the dog were both rescued by a Los Angeles woman named Christine Hilberg, who gave them a forever home when they had nowhere else to go. They became instant friends. Hilberg and her boyfriend adopted Larry, an African spurred tortoise, in 2009 from a couple that could no longer care for him, as they were overwhelmed by the many other animals they were already caring for. 2. BISCUIT AND ROSE Biscuit the Chihuahua and Rose the chicken have an odd relationship, but it works for them. At times, Biscuit gets a bit bossy toward Rose, but it’s also not unusual to see the two cuddling side-by-side. They also love exploring together outdoors. 1. SASHA, JACK, AND TWEAKS - THE “RAT PACK” Everyone should know about this unique trio! Meet Sasha the dog, Jack the cat, and Tweaks the rat, three animals who were adopted together after refusing to be separated at a Wisconsin animal shelter. The trio were already together before they ended up at the shelter.

The Double Tree of Grana Found in Grana and Casorzo in Piemonte, Italy, is an extremely rare type of tree. It's a mulberry tree with a cherry tree growing on top of it, and both are in perfect health. It's what's known as an epiphytic tree, which means there's one growing on the surface of another. 9. Dirty Thunderstorms Thunderstorms can be some of the most powerful displays of nature on the planet, but there's one type that forms in a completely different way that's very rare, and far more ominous. Usually, lightning is formed when ice crystals in a storm collide against each other and generate an electrical charge, which is released. 8. Blonde Zebra In February of 2019, a wildlife photographer was taking images of animals as they drank at a watering hole in the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania when something very unusual came into view. At first, it looked like a zebra that had been rolling in the dirt, but the strange coloration remained after it entered the water. 7. White Rainbow When people talk about the colors of the rainbow, you think of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet… but this isn't always the case. Sometimes the arcs in the sky can be devoid of all color and are known as white rainbows. Have you ever seen one of these? Also known as ‘fog rainbows', they are formed in the same way as normal rainbows. 6. Pyura chilensis Next time someone says something's as difficult as drawing blood from a stone, think of the Pyira chilensis. This strange sea creature, that's found in the waters around the coast of Chile and Peru, has the appearance of a rock, but when you look inside things are not what you'd expect. 5. Ladybugs on Weather Radar In June of 2019, the San Diego weather service picked up a strange reading on their radar. It looked like a rain cloud that was 5,000 feet in the air, but it wasn't raining in the area. Volunteer weather spotters went out to see what was happening, and a few of them reported seeing an unusually high number of ladybugs in the area. 4. Red Tide Algae grow in the oceans across the world, but occasionally their blooms become so large that they discolor the water, and can even be potentially dangerous. Even though the water may seem appealing for a swim, this is a phenomenon that you should stay well clear of! 3. Blue Eyed Coyotes Coyotes are a small species of wolf that are found across North America. While there are 19 subspecies, which differ in terms of size and their fur color, there's one thing that's common across all of them- they have golden brown irises in their eyes. Recently, though, images taken around California's Point Reyes National Seashore have shown that this isn't always the case, with some having blue eyes. 2. Rainbow Eucalyptus Possibly the most beautiful and unusual tree on the planet is native to the Philippines, Papua New Guinea, and Indonesia, although is now grown around the world. It's a species of Eucalyptus called the ‘Rainbow Eucalyptus' whose trees can grow to up to 150 feet tall, and produce spindly white flowers from the branches at the top. 1. Exploding Toads In 2005, residents of Hamburg in Germany began finding something truly horrific. Over a period of a few days, more than 1,000 toad corpses were found in a pond, seemingly having bloated and burst. It confused all local experts, as this had never been seen before, so the hunt was on to find an explanation.

Dabous Giraffe Among the largest-known animal carvings in the world are two life-sized neolithic giraffe petroglyphs called the Dabous Giraffe, located in a remote region of northeastern Niger, where the Ténéré Desert and Aïr Mountains meet. French archaeologist Christian Dupuy first recorded the engravings in 1987. The images, which were carved onto the weathered surface of a sandstone outcrop, are thought to represent a large male giraffe in front of a smaller female. 7. The Devil Heads The Devil Heads, known locally as Certovy Hlavy, are sometimes called the “Czech Mount Rushmore.” They’re a set of twin-figured reliefs carved into the side of a cliff in the northern Czech Republic, where the forest meets the village of Želízy. Sorry guys I have no idea how to pronounce Czech words! In addition to having nightmarish expressions and hollowed-out eyes, the faces stand at an imposing 9 meters (30 feet) high. 6. Atures Islands Rock Art Some of the world’s largest rock engravings have been found in western Venezuela, among a group of five islands located along the Atures Rapids of the Amazonian Orinoco River. 5. Rock Art of Murujuga The Dampier Archipelago and Burrup Peninsula of Western Australia’s Pilbara region, known collectively by the Aboriginal name Murujuga, are home to the world’s largest rock art collection. There are over one million individual works of art dating as far back as 40,000 years ago covering the 91,076-acre (36,857 hectare) site. 4. Leshan Giant Buddha To the east of Leshan city in China’s Sichuan province, at the confluence of 3 rivers, you’ll find a 233-foot-tall (71 meter) stone sculpture of a sitting Buddha. It is the largest stone-carved Buddha in the world. To give you an idea of how massive it is, around 100 people can fit on the statue’s 30-foot-wide (9 meter) instep, and the 79-foot-wide (24 meter) shoulder could be used as a basketball court. 3. Rock Art of Alta Northern Europe’s largest concentration of rock art made by hunter-gatherers is located in the Alta Fjord of modern-day Norway, near the Arctic Circle. Across several sites near the town of Alta, there are thousands of prehistoric paintings and engravings, dating from 7,000 to 2,000 years ago. 2. Decebalus Rex This 180-foot-high monument dedicated to Decebalus, the King of the Dacians, overlooks the Danube River in Romania. With a 23-foot-long nose and 14-foot eyes (7m and 4m), it’s much bigger than the 60-foot (18 m) presidential faces of Mount Rushmore. 1. Bamiyan Buddhas For 1500 years, Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike flocked to see the gigantic Bamiyan Buddha statues, located in the Bamiyan Valley in the Hazarat region of central Afghanistan. The 6th-7th century statues were carved into the side of a sandstone cliff with tunnels weaving in and out of the sandstone. Details were created using mud mixed with straw and coated with stucco.

CRAZIEST Alternative Theories Of Evolution - Is Charles Darwin's Theory Of Natural Selection Wrong?
CRAZIEST Alternative Theories Of Evolution - Is Charles Darwin's Theory Of Natural Selection Wrong?
2 months ago
Check out the CRAZIEST Alternative Theories Of Evolution! Charles Darwin's theory of evolution is widely seen as the most accepted theory of human evolution, but is natural selection actually real and could these other theories like the one from jean baptiste lamarck be on to something? Subscribe For New Videos! goo.gl/UIzLeB Watch our "DEADLIEST Animals In Africa!" video here: ruvideos.org/RKvMhCziPNM-video.html Watch our "Most TERRIFYING Extinct Creatures Ever!" video here: ruvideos.org/ZQ2duvyaqfw-video.html Watch our "AMAZING Animal Superpowers!" video here: ruvideos.org/RWrJtOVN_y4-video.html 10. Lamarckism Lamarckism was one of the earliest theories of evolution and was first proposed by Jean-Baptiste Lamarck in 1809, hence the name. The difference between it, and the commonly accepted theory put forward by Darwin is that Lamarck suggested animals could develop new traits within their lifetimes, as opposed to across a number of generations, and then pass them on. 9. Anaximander’s Theory of Evolution Anaximander was a Greek philosopher who lived between 610 BC and 546 BC. If history had turned out differently, he could have been more famous than Aristotle. As well as being one of the first to create a philosophical view of the world, he believed that the inhabited parts of the planet were on a flat surface of a cylinder, and he created one of the first maps of the Black Sea… he also developed one of the first known theories of evolution- one that was quite similar to that of Darwin’s. 8. Orthogenesis While Darwin’s theory of evolution shows that random mutations cause changes in animal physiology, and those that are beneficial tend to remain across generations, Orthogenesis, which is also called ‘straight-line evolution’ suggests that each successive generation of a species evolves in a single, definite, direction. 7. Saltationism Saltationism was a widely held belief of evolution before Darwin proposed his theory. While Darwin put forward the idea that species evolve gradually with mutations passing on through generations by natural selection, saltationism is the idea that large mutations happen, which lead to big changes happening much quicker. 6. Theistic Evolution A major problem that some people have with Darwin’s theory of evolution is that it implies that animals evolve in a random way, but this falls at odds with the idea that there is a God, or a creator, who surely would have designed perfect animals in the first place. 5. Vitalism Vitalism is the idea in biology that living organisms are fundamentally different from non-living structures because they either contain a non-physical element or are overseen by a different set of rules. Often this is referred to as a ‘vital spark', or a ‘soul', and there are some who believe it works hand in hand with evolution… with the belief that life goes through stages of actively wanting to evolve, as opposed to Darwin’s theory that says evolution is continually happening randomly at essentially the same rate. 4. Structuralism While Darwin's theory of evolution is functionalist, where organisms adapt to changing environments without a pre-arranged plan, structuralism is the idea that there are pre-ordained frameworks in place that direct the changes that occur, in particular, the effects of physical forces on development that in some cases supersede the idea of natural selection altogether. 3. Catastrophism We can see from the fossil record that, throughout history, the number of animals and plant species on the planet has varied drastically. Many believe that this was due to natural ebbs and flows, but the theory of catastrophism has been put forward to help explain this, and also to help understand its effect on evolution. 2. The Neutral Theory of Molecular Evolution First suggested in 1968, the neutral theory of molecular evolution says that at the molecular level, most genetic variances that occur in populations don’t happen as a result of natural selection, but because of random genetic drift. A species of animal may, for example, contain various genetic codes that perform the same function in different ways, but none of these are necessarily better or worse at what they do. 1. Ape Theory Why do you think that humans have evolved to become seemingly more intelligent and able to communicate better than any other species? Is it random evolution, divine intervention or, as was suggested in 1992, was it because our ancestors discovered psychedelic mushrooms on their journey?

THERMITE AND DRY ICE Thermite is a finely-ground chemical mixture of a metal and a metal oxide, usually aluminum and iron oxide. When thermite is ignited, the two chemicals undergo a chemical reaction called an exothermic oxidation-reduction reaction. This means that as electrons are transferred between the substances, energy is released. Thermite burns so hot, it can melt certain types of metal. 8. SODIUM ACETATE - “HOT ICE” Hot ice is a simple yet amazing chemical that can be made safely right at home using vinegar and baking soda. The hour-long experiment produces a liquid solution containing sodium acetate. This fluid is supercooled, meaning it remains in a liquid state below its typical melting point. 7. MAGNESIUM AND DRY ICE Magnesium produces a brilliant white light when ignited, which is why it’s used in handheld sparkler fireworks. Lighting magnesium inside a block of dry ice proves that air is not always necessary to create fire. During this experiment, the carbon dioxide in the dry ice is the magnesium’s only source of oxygen, creating a bright, energetic reaction. 6. THE DANCING GUMMY BEAR REACTION The dancing gummy bear experiment is another way to learn about how fire can occur in non-traditional ways. Step one involves putting a small amount of potassium chlorate in a test tube and burning it until it melts. Then, gummy bears are dropped into the test tube using tongs. 5. SODIUM AND CHLORINE Sodium chloride, or table salt, is formed by a reaction between sodium and chlorine. In their elemental forms, both chemicals are pretty dangerous. Chlorine is an extremely poisonous, pungent-smelling gas that is dangerous to inhale. It’s commonly used in small concentrations to kill bacteria in swimming pools. Pure sodium is highly reactive with water and air, and mishandling it can cause it to combust. 4. IODINE CLOCK REACTION The iodine clock reaction is when colorless chemicals are mixed together and suddenly become a dark blue or black shade. This is the result of several chemical reactions occurring at the same time. One way this effect is achieved is by combining sodium sulfite, citric acid, and sodium iodate. 3. MICROWAVE PLASMA Not sure if you already knew this or not but this is something you can do at home. If you cut a grape almost in half, but leave the two pieces connected by the skin, and heat it in the microwave, it somehow creates plasma, spitting out small, glowing jets. Until recently, however, scientists weren’t sure how or why this happened. 2. EXPLOSIVE POLYMERIZATION What do you get when you mix together heat, sulfuric acid, and para-nitroaniline? A rapidly-expanding dark foam made out of water, sulfur dioxide, and some other, yet-to-be-determined substances. In 2014, RUvideos user Adrian McLaughlin created one of the most impressive examples of explosive polymerization on the internet to date. 1. FERROFLUID Ferrofluid is short for ferromagnetic fluid. In the presence of a magnetic field, it becomes strongly magnetized. It was first invented for NASA in 1963 by a man named Steve Papell, as a fuel that could be used in a weightless environment by being drawn toward a pump inlet using a magnetic field. After being invented, ferrofluid was advanced and improved upon largely by a man named R.E. Rosensweig and his colleagues.

Blue-Footed You know you want to say it! The Galápagos Islands are home to around half the breeding population of the blue-footed, a species of bird that resides off the western South and Central American coasts. This carnivorous bird grows between 32 and 34 inches tall (81cm-86cm), with a wingspan that reaches up to five feet across (1.5m). 7. Fernandina Giant Tortoise In February of this year, the Ecuadorian government announced the rediscovery of the Fernandina giant tortoise, a species widely believed to be extinct for over a century. Until then, the last time a Fernandina giant tortoise was seen alive was in 1906. 6. Flightless Cormorant This species is endemic to the Galápagos Islands and is both the heaviest and only flightless bird of the 29 cormorant species. Because it cannot fly, it is confined to the northwestern coast of Fernandina Island and the eastern coast of Isabela Island. 5. Galapagos Sea Lion The Galapagos sea lion is the most abundant marine mammal throughout the archipelago and is one of two seal species found there. They also breed just off mainland Ecuador, on Isla de la Plata. Because the Galapagos sea lion is not a “true” seal, they’re able to “gallop” across land and can move faster than a person can run over rocky terrain. 4. Galapagos/American Flamingo The Galápagos flamingo is a genetically distinct, smaller version of the American or Caribbean flamingo, and is the smallest and one of the most brightly colored flamingo species out of the six that exist. There are only 350 flamingos left on the Galápagos Islands, making it one of the most endangered of the Galápagos species, and it’s listed accordingly on the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List. 3. Red-Lipped Batfish This unusual, bottom-dwelling fish is unique to the Galapagos Islands, despite being related to other batfish species. It can usually be found near the archipelago on the Pacific Ocean floor, at depths between 9.8 and 249 feet (3-76 meters), or on sandy reef bottoms up to 393.7 feet (120 meters) deep. 2. Galapagos Penguin Fewer than 1,000 breeding pairs of the Galapagos penguin are thought to remain. They dwell primarily on the islands of Fernandina and Isabela. It’s related closely to the burrow-dwelling African, Humboldt, and Magellanic penguin species. The Galapagos penguin does not burrow, however, because there’s no soft peat available for them to do so. Instead, they live in caves and crevices provided by the volcanic atmosphere. 1. Marine Iguana The waters surrounding the Galapagos Islands are home to the world’s only marine-dwelling iguana. This species is notorious for being “ugly,” and was even referred to by Charles Darwin as “hideous looking” and “most disgusting, clumsy lizards.” Origins Explained is the place to be to find all the answers to your questions, from mysterious events and unsolved mysteries to everything there is to know about the world and its amazing animals!

Hercules Galaxy Cluster The Hercules Galaxy cluster, also known as ‘Abell 2151’ is a collection of more than 200 different galaxies. It’s about 500 million light years away from us, in the Hercules constellation, and has a large number of spiral galaxies. This cluster itself, is a part of the Hercules supercluster, which is a set of three galaxy clusters which form a part of the great wall… one of the largest superstructures that have been detected in the observable universe. 9. Pluto Although it’s no longer classified as a planet, instead being re-classified as a minor planet in 2006, it’s still of huge interest to astronomers to help understand the mysterious outer reaches of our solar system. 8. Eta Carinae Eta Carinae is a stellar system that is made up of at least 2 stars, which combined are at least 5 million times as bright as the sun. It’s about 7,500 light years away from Earth, in the constellation Carina, and is one of the most active systems ever to be detected. 7. Alpha Centauri Alpha Centauri is our galactic neighbor, but even though it's the nearest star system to our own, it's 4.37 light years away from us. The system is made up of three stars that are known as Alpha Centauri A, or Rigil Kentaurus, Alpha Centauri B, or Toliman, and Alpha Centauri C, more commonly referred to as Proxima Centauri. The first two are the brightest, and with the naked eye from Earth appear to be one star, while the third is a dim red dwarf that is slightly closer to us than the others. 6. The First Martian Rover The Mars Pathfinder was a spacecraft that landed a base station on Mars in 1997. The lander was called the Carl Sagan Memorial Station after the American astronomer, and the rover that it carried was called Sojourner. The rover that can be seen in this image, was the first such human-made device to operate outside of the earth and moon system and revolutionized exploration of the red planet. 5. NGC 7773 Our own galaxy, the milky way, is thought to be a spiral armed galaxy, but it’s difficult to learn much about its full structure from inside it. Astronomers, therefore, have to turn to other galaxies that can be viewed from a distance to further understand how these collections of stars and material work. 4. The Sun’s Corona Even though it’s by far the largest object in the solar system, relatively little is really known about the sun, and few probes have ever gotten anywhere near it. One big question has baffled scientists since temperature measurements were taken of it, and that’s understanding why the atmosphere of the sun called “the Corona” is more than 200 times hotter than its surface. 3. Black Holes Black Holes were once mystical objects, and have been the subject of speculation ever since they were first discovered. We know a lot more about them now, but what may come as a surprise is how many of them there appear to be. They are the final form of a dying star, something that only happens to the most massive ones. 2. Andromeda Galaxy The Andromeda Galaxy is the nearest galaxy to our own, at about 2.5 million light years away, and is about the same mass as the milky way too, although it has twice as many stars, and has a much wider reach of about 220,000 light years. It's visible to the naked eye from earth on clear nights and is expected to collide with the Milky Way in about 4.5 billion years time. 1. The Saturn Apollo Landing 2019 is the 50th anniversary of the first Moon landing, a moment that solidified the US as THE space power and heralded a new era of space exploration. Without this mission, our ideas of visiting further away object like Mars would be inconceivable, and it inspired a generation to the wonders of science and what lies beyond the earth.

Jaguar XKSS In 1956, Jaguar withdrew from motorsports to focus solely on road cars, leaving the company with 25 D-Type racing cars they needed to somehow sell. Sixteen of them were modified to be road-appropriate and rebranded as the XKSS, which was targeted to American buyers. Sadly the other nine cars were destroyed in a fire. 8. 2013 Pagani Zonda Revolucion The Pagani Automobili Zonda mid-engined Italian supercar debuted in 1999, beginning with the C-12 model. Subsequently, models such as the Zonda S 7.3, Zonda Roadster, Zonda Cinque, and Zonda R were produced. Out of all of them, the Zonda Revolucion was the best model, and only five were ever made. It came with a new aerodynamic package, including a new rear wing and drag reduction system, and is equipped with a 6.0 liter V-12 engine that pumps out 800 horsepower. 7. Lykan Hypersport The Lykan HyperSport is the first sports car indigenous to the Middle East in both design and manufacture. This limited production model was first built in 2012 by the United Arab Emirates-based company W Motors, with the help of Lebanese, French, and Italian engineers. 6. Icona Vulcano Titanium Meet the world’s first titanium car, the Vulcano Titanium, created by the Italian design house Icona Group. Its design was inspired by the supersonic, titanium-made Lockheed SR-71 reconnaissance aircraft. The Vulcano Titanium has a top speed of 220 miles per hour (355 km/hr) and goes from zero to 62 miles per hour (99.8 km/hr) in just 2.8 seconds. 5. 2013 Lamborghini Veneno The Lamborghini Veneno is a limited production high-performance sports car that was built to commemorate the company’s 50th anniversary. Its design was based on the Lamborghini Aventador. The car made its first appearance at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. The Veneno was said to be named after one of the strongest, fastest, and most aggressive fighting bulls that ever existed. 4. 1998 McLaren F1 LM The McLaren F1 LM was built in commemoration of five McLaren F1 GTR’s that competed in the 24 Hours of Le Mans race in 1995. It was designed to be the world’s finest road car - a version of the racing car that was, for a time, unrivaled on the track. All the LM’s that were made were painted papaya orange, in honor of Bruce McLaren’s racing color. 3. Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato The Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato was an improved version of the standard DB4 GT. It was introduced at the London Motor Show in 1960. This upgraded model was produced at the Zagato factory in Italy. Despite plans to manufacture 25 of the vehicles, only 19 were ever made. The DB4 GT Zagato was smaller, more aerodynamic, and 100 pounds lighter than its predecessor, thanks to all the steel components of the previous model being replaced with aluminum. 2. 1953 Jaguar XK120-C Jaguar produced its XK120-C, or C-Type, between 1951 and 1953. This highly successful racing car had two major wins at the 24 Hours of Le Mans races in 1951 and 1953. In 1952, the car’s aerodynamics were modified to increase the top speed due to the anticipated competitiveness of the Mercedes-Benz 300SL. 1. Ferrari 250 GTO The Ferrari 250 GTO is a GT car that was built between 1962 and 1964 to compete alongside models like the Shelby Cobra, Jaguar E-Type, and the Aston Martin DP214. When it came to the mechanical aspects of the 250 GTO, its designers and builders erred on the safe side of using engine and chassis parts that were successful in earlier competition cars.

The Flatwoods Monster On September 12th, 1952, an odd event happened in West Virginia that is still unexplained to this day. A fireball was seen in the sky. But, unlike regular meteors and comets and such, this fireball was seen all across the United States. There were sightings of it from coast to coast. 7. Kiryat Yam's Mermaids In terms of Cryptids, the Mermaid is one of the most legendary mythical creatures said to be out there. Many sailors claimed to have seen them, including Christopher Columbus. But apparently, there have been modern appearances by these creatures as well such as in 2009 in Kiryat Yam, Israel. 6. Jersey Devil According to legend, there was a woman named Jane "Mother" Leads who had many children during her life. But one night, she was giving birth to what would be her 13th child, and when it was being born, she uttered the words, "Let this one be the devil". If you believe the story, that wish came true. For after being born, it grew horns, wings, and a tail. It flew up the chimney of her house and went out into the world. 5. The Objects Over Washington D.C. While aliens aren't technically Cryptids, there are many who view them as legendary monsters. And just like monsters, any sightings of aliens are sure to cause a panic. Especially when the event itself comes out of nowhere, and there's still no true explanation as to what happened. That's likely what certain air traffic controllers were feeling in 1952, when their radars started picking up something they couldn't explain. 4. U-28 Crocodile In World War I, there was a British Steamer known as the Iberian. It was going through waters next to Ireland when it came under attack by a German U-28 submarine. A battle commenced, and despite the Iberian fleeing with all she had, the submarine won in the end. But that doesn't end this particular story. 3. Kraken The Kraken is a legend that continues to thrive around the world despite many people believing that it is just an exaggeration of a now known creature- the giant squid. According to the legends, the Kraken is a squid of such size that it would dwarf and consume massive vessels. 2. Loch Ness Monster In terms of "legendary monster sightings", there are a few beasts that truly stand the test of time, and one of them can be found in Loch Ness, Scotland. The first "official" sighting of the creature came in 1933, and ever since that point, the people around the loch, or whoever comes to the loch, try and find it. The monster, now known as "Nessie", is said to be a sea creature of a sort with a large body and a very long neck. 1. Bigfoot Perhaps of all the stories, there is no greater one than all the sightings of Bigfoot that have been reported over the years. For those of you that don't know, the Sasquatch, aka Bigfoot, is an ape-like creature that is actually taller than a human, and walks on two legs. They're said to be very powerful, and rather intelligent. The hunt for Bigfoot and it’s similar counterparts from around the world has spawned many legends, stories, and even TV shows dedicated to finding one, or its species as some claim.

Shwe Inn Thein Pagodas The small village of Indein, located on the western bank of Inle River in the heart of the Myanmar jungles, contains hundreds of pagodas of varying shapes, sizes, and states of decay, as well as a central shrine. The easiest way to access the village is by taking a boat ride down the narrow, foliage-lined Inn Thein Creek, which can only be done during the winter or the rainy season, as it’s too dry in the summer. 7. Beng Mealea The Cambodian capital of Siem Reap is home to the Angkor Wat temple complex, one of the largest religious monuments in the world. About 25 miles (40 km) east of the main temples is a separate site called Beng Mealea. To get there, you must make an hour-long journey out of Siem Reap down a bumpy, remote road. 6. Calakmul The remains of the ancient Maya city of Calakmul are located in Campeche, Mexico, deep in the tropical forest of the Tierras Bajas, in the southern central portion of the Yucatán Peninsula. This UNESCO World Heritage site is far from most of the region’s modern towns, and getting there requires a long drive. 5. Wat Palad Tucked into the heart of the jungle in Chiang Mai, Thailand is a temple known as Wat Palad, also called Wat Pha Lat and Wat Sakithaka. Located on Mount Doi Suthep a little outside of town, it’s largely unknown to tourists, despite being named by Thailandee.com as “probably the prettiest forest temple in Chiang Mai province.” To get there, visitors provide their taxi driver with the temple name and are dropped off on the side of the road. 4. Saleshwaram Cave Temple The Saleshwaram Cave Temple, is located in the Nallamala Forest of India’s Andhra Pradesh district. Getting there isn’t easy, it’s a long climb and a walk so hopefully you are in good shape. After a 6.2-mile (10 km) drive into the forest, visitors must cover an additional 1.9 miles (3 km) or more on foot. 3. Mount Koya Mount Koya is a small, secluded mountain-top Buddhist community located in a wooded area of Japan’s Wakayama Prefecture, south of Kyoto and Osaka. Over 100 temples and monasteries are located within Mount Koya, which has been considered a spiritual retreat and one of Japan’s holiest destinations since it was established in the year 819 by a famous monk named Kukai, or Kobo Daishi. 2. La Ciudad Blanca The Honduran jungle is one of the least-explored places on Earth, and is also the alleged site of a rumored White City, or “City of the Monkey God,” an ancient, abandoned metropolis that was once inhabited by an unknown civilization. In 2012, the suspected site was discovered among a valley located within the Mosquitia Mountains using LIDAR, or “light detection and ranging” technology, which has the capability of finding structures and mapping terrain through even the densest jungle foliage. 1. El Mirador Deep in the sub-tropical forest of Guatemala’s Petén Department are the tallest known Maya pyramids and the largest Maya city ever discovered. The site is named El Mirador, or “Viewpoint,” after the pyramids, which exceed the height of the surrounding trees. The only options for reaching El Mirador are to take mule trails through the thick jungle or by helicopter.

Check out the Most UNBELIEVABLE Shark Behaviors! From the biggest sharks in the ocean to strange behavior recorded by great white sharks, this top 10 list of shark week facts will amaze you!

Weaponized Tails We hear so much about how the mouths of sharks are dangerous, but there’s one species that has another vicious weapon… it’s tail. Known as Thresher sharks, they are found in open oceans around the world at depths of up to 1,600 feet. There are three species of thresher shark, the pelagic, bigeye, and common- and while they have slight differences, they all have these uniquely formed tails. 9. Gastric Eversion Gastric Eversion is the process by which animals can regurgitate their entire stomachs out of their mouth, and while you may have heard of snakes or frogs doing it, did you know that sharks do it too? Different species of shark actually have various reasons for regurgitation. Great Whites, for example, have been seen to purposefully vomit food that they’ve just eaten to make room for more- something that, rather than being gluttonous, is thought to be their way of ensuring they get the best quality of food on offer. 8. Returning to Their Birthplace It's easy to look at sharks as being creatures of instinct rather than habit, but after a 20-year study of the behaviors of lemon sharks, researchers discovered something quite amazing. The females usually return to the same place to give birth, and some have been observed returning to the exact place that they, themselves, were born. 7. Sleeping You may have heard that while sharks sleep they need to keep moving continuously, and while the theory behind this fact is correct, it doesn't mean it’s always true. They need a constant flow of water over their gills to extract the oxygen, which presents a problem if they were to remain motionless while sleeping… but with the more than 400 different species of sharks come a variety of ways around this. 6. Embryo Cannibalism Sharks live cutthroat lives, but research has found that, in some species, their fight for survival begins before they’ve even been born! Autopsies of sand tiger sharks performed during the 1980s found something unusual- there were embryos within other embryos. 5. Bioluminescence Bioluminescence can be seen across the entire animal kingdom, but did you know that more than 10 percent of the currently known shark species are described as being luminous? It’s one of the more mysterious parts of shark biology and is thought to perform different functions depending on the species. 4. Monogamy Although most shark species practice multiple paternity, where a litter of pups will have different fathers, some have been found to only mate with one partner throughout their lives. This means there's nowhere near as much genetic variation in their offspring and is thought to be putting one species at risk. 3. The Slowest Fish We often think of sharks as being streamlined predators that dart through the ocean in search of their prey, but one species, the Greenland Sleeper Shark, is actually the slowest fish, relative to its size, in the whole world. They live in the depths of the Arctic and North Atlantic, and can grow to 21 feet long, and weigh as much as 2,200 pounds. 2. Birth Sharks, like most other animals on earth, require a male and a female for procreation… but there are some instances where this has proven to not be the case. It’s a process called ‘Parthenogenesis’ which translated from Greek means ‘ birth’, and while it’s common in insects, it also occurs with some fish, reptiles, and turkeys… and has been noted in a few shark species, such as the white-spotted bamboo shark. 1. The White Shark Cafe Great White sharks are undoubtedly the species that we think of when we think of oceanic predators, and while they aren't as mercilessly vicious as movies would lead us to believe, they're still one of the most efficient predators on the planet. For this reason, a lot of time has been spent monitoring their behaviors, and there's something that researchers noticed that didn't make any sense… until recently.

CRAZIEST Facts About The MEGALODON Shark!
CRAZIEST Facts About The MEGALODON Shark!

Check out the CRAZIEST Facts About THe MEGALODON Shark! This gigantic prehistoric shark that lived millions of years ago has some incredible facts about it that will absolutely amaze you! Subscribe For New Videos! goo.gl/UIzLeB Watch our "DEADLIEST Animals In Africa!" video here: ruvideos.org/RKvMhCziPNM-video.html Watch our "Most TERRIFYING Extinct Creatures Ever!" video here: ruvideos.org/ZQ2duvyaqfw-video.html Watch our "AMAZING Animal Superpowers!" video here: ruvideos.org/RWrJtOVN_y4-video.html 9. How big was the megalodon? There has been much debate about the size to which adult Megalodons could grow- mainly because the only fossil records available for them are their teeth and, on occasion, parts of the spinal column. It’s generally thought that the typical maximum size they could grow to is around 60 feet, with the average size being around 35 feet, but this doesn’t mean that sometimes one could grow to freakish proportions and reach the 70 foot mark. 8. How big were their teeth? One of the scariest (and coolest) things about the Megalodon is the size of its teeth, up to 7 inches long! That’s more than twice the size of the teeth of a great white shark. Even a T-Rex's teeth only grew to around 6 inches. The Megalodon did have one enemy to be aware of however. 7. The Meg and the Great White When you hear about the Megalodon, comparisons with the great white shark are never too far behind. But despite the two species being quite similar in their predatory nature, they aren’t closely related at all. When Megalodon teeth were first discovered, they were put into the same genus as the Great White Shark, known as Carcharodon, because of their similarly serrated teeth and the fact they were the apex predators of the time. 6. Did Megalodons eat whales? With its massive teeth and giant size, Megalodons truly were the apex predators of their time, and to feed such a mighty appetite, they hunted giant prey. It's been estimated that a Meg would have needed to eat at least one ton of food EVERY day to sustain itself. So it was always on the prowl searching for prehistoric whales and other large chubby marine mammals like Sea Lions and Sea Cows. 5. Megalodons near South Africa? Evidence of Megalodons has been found around the world, but there have been numerous stories, recently, that they have been spotted in the waters around South Africa. Alive. 4. Bite Force With the Megalodon reaching around 60 feet in length and having teeth as large and as sharp as I mentioned before, it's perhaps no surprise that altogether, this combined to give it the most powerful bite of any animal that has ever lived. (Again, that we know so far!) However, it did have a competitor- the equally impressive and ginormous Livyatan, the sperm whale with fully functioning 14-inch teeth and a 3-meter-long head. 3. Where did the Megalodon live? With their large size, Megalodons are often depicted as living in deep water- but that’s not actually the case at all. Their fossilized teeth have been found all over the world- including what is now Europe, Africa, the Americas, and Australia. Fossils found in the southern hemisphere and in the Pacific tend to be larger than those found in the northern hemisphere and in the Atlantic. 2. How much are fossilized teeth? As mentioned earlier, a Megalodon could have as many as 276 teeth in their mouths at any one time, and they were quite a common species around the world. This means that there are huge numbers of fossils out there to be found, and they are regularly discovered in fossil beds. You could find your own teeth! Do any of you collect these? Let me know in the comments! 1. Are Megalodons Extinct? The short answer is yes. Megalodons are thought to have become extinct between 3.6 and 2.6 million years ago. Which is a relief because these massive predators would make the waters incredibly dangerous places to be. This would be a huge hazard to the modern world!

Antarctic Sea Monster In June 2016, someone posted they had seen an eerie green glow in the depths of the waters off Antarctica thanks to Google Earth. At first glance, everything looks normal around Deception Island in the South Shetlands. But, when you zoom in, there are some dark spots, and then, the green glow coming out of nowhere. People started speculating it was actually the Kraken! 7. Bigfoot Legends of Bigfoot can be traced back to Native American and European folklore, but there are versions of a big, hairy, human-like beast all over the world. Reports of Bigfoot or Sasquatch are prevalent in the Pacific Northwest, particularly British Columbia, Oregon and Washington. A small minority of anthropologists have not ruled out this creature’s existence and in 2013, it seems that one was spotted by Google Earth. 6. Merseyside Jaws In December 2010, 36-year-old Simon Hoban noticed what looked like a gigantic shark when he looked at the Albert Dock in Merseyside, England using Google Earth. Albert Dock is a major tourist attraction in the city and is often used for community events. 5. New Hominid Species In 2010, a new species of hominid was revealed via the discovery of two fossil skeletons in South Africa, providing a valuable evolutionary link between the early hominid genus Australopithecus and Homo, the one us modern humans belong to. 4. Loch Ness Monster It’s hardly surprising that Google Earth has been a popular tool used by arm-chair researchers in their pursuit to find mythical creatures. In 2014, two novice Loch Ness monster hunters named Peter Thain and Andy Dixon captured what they believed to be photos of Nessie using Google Earth on their iPhones. 3. Crabzilla In October of 2014, the British newspaper Sunday Express published an aerial image of a massive crab off the coast of Whitstable, UK. Thought to be around 50 feet long (15 m), the gigantic creature was dubbed “Crabzilla,” and the picture went viral. The photograph first appeared the year before in a blog called Weird Whitstable, which also posted an image of two gargantuan crab pincers reaching out of the water as children play on the dock above. 2. New Zealand Sea Creature In late 2014, an engineer named Pita Witehira spotted a giant mystery sea creature off New Zealand’s famous Oke Bay, located along the east coast of the North Island, using Google Earth. It looked like a long dark line in the water, like a snake following a boat. 1. New Species In the African country of Mozambique, there’s a mountain that was untouched by human and scientific interference for a very long time - perhaps forever. It’s called Mount Mabu, and it’s located within the country’s dense, thick rainforest, which is surrounded by savannah. Not only did its environment help keep it isolated, but the civil war of Mozambique, which lasted from 1977 to 1992, contributed to the area’s preservation.

Pacific Sleeper Shark Somniosus pacificus, less formally known as the Pacific sleeper shark, occupies waters in the Arctic and North Pacific Oceans. It’s often seen near Russia, Taiwan, Japan, Mexico, and the California coast. In the northern part of its distribution, the Pacific sleeper shark tends to live close to the shore, although it’s considered a deepwater fish. 7. Great Hammerhead Shark Sphyrna mokarran, or the great hammerhead, is the largest hammerhead shark species. It can be found worldwide in warm, coastal waters exceeding 68 degrees Fahrenheit (20 degrees Celsius). These solitary swimmers migrate lengthy distances of over 756 miles (1,200 km). 6. Great White Shark Everyone’s heard the great white shark. They’re found in cool, coastal waters worldwide. It’s the largest predatory fish on Earth, reaching an average length of 15 feet (4.57 meters) and sometimes exceeding 20 feet (6.1 meters) in length. Weights of up to 5,000 pounds (2,268 kg) have been recorded. 5. Greenland Shark This species, known scientifically as Somniosus microcephalus, inhabits the frigid waters of the Arctic and northern Atlantic Oceans, particularly near Greenland, Iceland, Norway, and Canada. It’s the only known shark that can tolerate Arctic conditions year-round and prefers waters ranging between 32 and 50 degrees Fahrenheit (-1 to 10 Celsius). 4. Tiger Shark The tiger shark, is common throughout the world’s tropical and subtropical waters. The tiger shark can grow between 10-13 feet long and weigh 385-635 kg (849-1,400 lb) With sharp, serrated teeth and powerful jaws, the tiger shark is one you may want to avoid. 3. Megamouth Shark The megamouth shark is a deepwater species commonly found in temperate to tropical latitudes worldwide, but is most commonly sighted in the Pacific, and lives anywhere from near the water’s surface to 15,000 feet (4,600 meters) below it. Scientists believe that the megamouth shark typically remains deep underwater and only comes near the surface at night. 2. Basking Shark Also known as the basking shark, bone shark, and elephant shark, it is the second-biggest shark and fish in the world. It dwells mainly in the temperate waters of the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans and is seen along virtually every coastline bordering those water bodies. 1. Whale Shark For those of you who guessed, here you go!! The whale shark is not only the largest shark species, it’s the largest fish in existence. This species prefers warm waters and inhabits all tropical seas, and travels great distances to feed and reproduce. Every spring, the whale shark makes its annual migration to the continental shelf of Australia’s central west coast.

The Oldest Living Vertebrate Do you know what the longest living vertebrate is? Now we have the answer!! Scientists confirmed in a 2016 study that the Greenland shark is not only the longest-living shark species, it has the longest lifespan of all known vertebrates. Some of these deepwater fish are believed to be over 400 years old, making them older than many countries, including the United States! 7. Strange Reproductive Methods Chimaeras, also known as ratfish or ghost sharks, are very rare sharks found in the deep sea. Chimaeras have been around for an estimated 280 million years and are distantly related to sharks and rays. Given their obscure presence, scientists know very little about them. 6. Buzz Sharks in Idaho The extinct Helicoprion, or buzz saw shark, was an ancestor of the modern-day ghost shark. The buzz saw shark swam in the Earth’s waters some 270 million years ago and was the world’s largest predator at the time. This massive and intimidating creature possessed up to 150 razor-sharp teeth in a “whorl” or spiral-shaped jaw that confused researchers and was misclassified by paleontologists for over a century before they finally figured out what it was, and it took some more time after that for them to determine its purpose. 5. Who Wiped Out the Megalodon? Any shark enthusiast out there has heard of the megalodon, a supermassive, extinct shark species that grew up to 60 feet long and lived millions of years ago. Scientists have struggled to determine why this gargantuan predator went extinct, but may have recently come one step closer to figuring it out, according to findings published earlier this year. 4. Leaping Sharks In September 2018, a new study found that basking sharks, second largest in size only to whale sharks, can leap out of the water as quickly and as high as great whites. The researchers found that basking sharks are unhindered by their up-to-33-foot-long (10 meters) bodies when it comes to making Olympic-worthy jumps. They swim at speeds of up to 11 miles per hour (18 km/hr) and can leap as high as four feet (1.2 meters) above the water’s surface. 3. We Share a Common Ancestor As crazy as this statement definitely sounds, it’s true. The split between sharks and human ancestors occurred around 440 million years ago, during the Silurian period. Scientists figured this out by studying the remains of a 385-million-year-old shark, which lived during the Devonian period, a time during which creatures first moved onto land. 2. They May Become Right or Left-Handed The predicted eventual effects of climate change stand to leave virtually no life form unchanged, including sharks. In a December 2018 article for LiveScience, writer Brandon Specktor reported that global warming may cause sharks to become lateralized, which means the tendency for one-half of a creature’s brain to automatically control certain behaviors. 1. Harmful Plastic Waste Sharks are one of several often-overlooked marine species whose survival is threatened by pollution. Thousands of sharks and rays are suffering as a result of the overwhelming presence of plastic waste throughout the world’s waterways. In a study recently published in the journal Endangered Species Reports, scientists documented over 1,000 incidents of sharks and rays becoming entangled in plastic debris.

Tanzanite The name “tanzanite” was first used by Tiffany & Company for blue, gem-quality specimens of the mineral zoisite. They renamed the precious stone mainly because they felt it would be easier to market under the catchy name “tanzanite.” The world’s only known tanzanite deposit of commercial value is located in northern Tanzania, hence the label “tanzanite,” which reflects the gem’s limited geographic origin. 10. Spinel Spinel has been around since ancient times, but received little consumer recognition and was underappreciated until recently. Its rich red color and history finally gained some well-deserved attention when the demand for ruby alternatives increased in recent years. Southeast Asian mines yielded impressively large spinel crystals during ancient times, which became the property of kings and emperors, as well as spoils of war. 9. Taaffeite Taaffeite is one of the rarest and most desirable collector gemstones. Unlike most precious gems, taaffeite was discovered as a cut gemstone. It was discovered by chance in 1945 by an Austrian gemologist named Richard Taaffe. He discovered a spinel that was doubly refractive while sifting through a parcel of gems he’d purchased from a Dublin dealer, all of which should have been singly refractive. 8. Poudretteite Poudretteite is one of the rarest known gems, and is named after the family who owned and operated the quarry near Mont Saint-Hilaire, Quebec, where it was first discovered. It was first found in modest quantities of just a few crystals during the 1960’s, and wasn’t officially recognized as a mineral until 1986. The first documented gem-quality poudretteite specimen was discovered in 2000 Myanmar. 7. Black Opal The term “black opal” refers to opals with a black, dark gray, dark blue, or dark green body color. Despite its dark body tone, a black opal would be worthless if it lacked the vibrant spectrum of colors that are visible when it shines in the light. Black opals contain trace elements of iron oxide and carbon, which causes their unusual darkness. 6. Grandidierite Since its discovery in Madagascar in 1902 by French mineralogist Alfred Lacroix, grandidierite has seldom appeared in jewelry and gem collections. This lovely and extremely rare stone ranges in color from bluish-green to greenish-blue. It’s suitable for jewelry due to its 7.5 hardness, but is difficult to cut because it has good cleavage in two directions, according to the International Gem Society. 5. Red Beryl The red beryl is both an ultra-rare gemstone and a rare type of beryl, receiving its red hue from traces of manganese. Crystals worthy of cutting gems have only ever been found the Wah Wah Mountains of B County, Utah. To give you an idea of how rare it is, for every 150,000 gem-quality diamonds that are found, one red beryl crystal is discovered, according to an estimate by the Utah Geological Survey. 4. Alexandrites Alexandrite is a rare, color-changing version of the mineral chrysoberyl. It’s referred to by some gem aficionados as “emerald by day, ruby by night.” The gem was originally discovered in 1830 in Russia’s Ural Mountains, and has since been found in Sri Lanka, East Africa, and Brazil. Gem-quality material is exceptionally rare and valuable, however. 3. Emeralds My favorite stone! Emeralds are often associated with Queen Cleopatra, who was said to be so obsessed with them, that she would decorate her jewelry, crowns, and robes with them. Emeralds are about 20 times rarer than diamond but their quality varies enormously. Emerald is a member of the beryl family, and is part of the big 4 gems along with sapphire, ruby, and diamond. Their color results from minerals like chromium and vanadium which also give them natural inclusions. 2. Blue Sapphires Blue sapphires range in color from pure blue, to greenish-blue, to violet-blue, and are from the mineral species corundum. Any corundum that’s not red or considered a “ruby” can be called a sapphire. 1. Colored Diamonds I am sure none of you are surprised! Numerous factors go into determining a diamond’s value, and color is one of them.

Mehandipur Balaji Temple Shri Mehandipur Balaji Mandir, more commonly known in the “West” as the Mehandipur Balaji Temple, is located in the district of Rajasthan, roughly 200 kilometers southwest of Delhi. The temple sees thousands of visitors daily who come from near and far to have spirits exorcised from their minds and bodies. In Hindi, these beings are known as bhuts or prets. 7. Brahma Baba’s Temple In a village near Jaunpur in Uttar Pradesh, there’s a tree outside of a temple that’s adorned with hundreds of clocks, which were given as offerings of gratitude for fulfilled wishes. The temple receives scores of visitors from various religions, including Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs, and Christians, who first visit seeking assistance with their wishes, and later once their prayers have been answered, they come back, leaving behind gifts of clocks and watches. 6. Bharat Mata Mandir Bharat Mata Mandir, also known as Bharat Mata Temple, is located in Varanasi on the Mahatma Gandhi Kashi Vidyapith campus. The temple features a huge relief map of a unified India carved out of white marble, as opposed to traditional statues of gods and goddesses, and is dedicated to Bharat Mata, the national personification of India as a mother goddess. It’s rumored to be the only temple devoted to Mother India. 5. Channapatna Dog Temple In the city of Channapatna in the Karnataka district, there’s a temple devoted to worshipping dogs as a god. The temple is located in a small village within the city called Agrahara Vala-gera-halli and is visited by hundreds of dog lovers annually from across the globe. 4. Amitabh Bachchan Temple Tucked away in the dark corner of an apartment block in Old Kolkata is a temple dedicated to Bollywood star Amitabh Bachchan. The temple is hard to find, but you’ll know it when you see it, thanks to an unambiguous neon banner marking its doorway. 3. Shaheed Baba Nihal Singh Gurdwara In the tiny Punjab village of Talhan, there’s a Sikh shrine that attracts visitors hoping for some divine intervention with acquiring their visas to relocate to another country. They travel to the 150-year-old Shaheed Baba Nihal Singh Gurdwara and pray for their visas, and leave small toy planes for the gods, in hopes that their wishes will be granted. 2. Karni Mata Temple Known by many as the Temple of Rats, the Karni Mata Temple is located in the small town of Deshnoke in the district of Rajasthan. It’s dedicated to Karni Mata, a female Hindu warrior who was worshiped by her followers as the incarnation of the warrior goddess Durga. 1. Om Banna In December of 1991, a man named Om Banna lost control of his motorcycle while driving drunk and hit a tree while riding in the Rajasthan district. He died shortly after the crash, and his 300 Enfield Bullet motorcycle was taken to the police station as evidence. The next morning, the motorcycle had somehow been returned to the crash site. Police retrieved the bike and locked it up at the station, but it somehow kept making its way back to the scene of the accident - even after the police emptied the gas tank as a last-ditch effort to prevent it from straying.

Time Dilation For hundreds of thousands of years, people have had a concept of the continual passage of time… whether they measured it by the movement of the sun across the sky, with wristwatches, and more recently smartphones. Quantum physics, however, has shown that time isn’t as constant as it seems, with a process known as time dilation. 9. The Different Types of Water When you have a glass of water, how many different types of water do you think the glass is filled with? It sounds like a strange question, but equally as strange is the answer… because there are actually two different forms. This would be a good question for trivial pursuit!! 8. The Fifth State of Matter We all learned about the states of matter in science class, and how elements transition between solid, liquid, gas, and plasma… but quantum physics has enabled the creation of a fifth state of matter known as ‘Bose-Einstein condensates’, which itself allows more experimentation in the weird world of quantum physics. 7. Neutrino Origins Neutrinos are mysterious particles that pass through virtually everything, which makes them incredibly difficult to study, but recent experiments, such as the Ice Cube Neutrino Observatory, have given opportunities to detect them, and even learn about their origins. A recent paper detailed what happened when scientists tracked where a neutrino had come from, and they couldn’t believe what they found. Based on this, now models of the universe have to be re-written. 6. Objects Can Have 2 Temperatures Schrodinger’s cat is a famous experiment from quantum physics that shows how a cat in a box can be alive and dead at the same time because of quantum mechanics… but a recent study has proven that a similarly weird phenomenon also exists that means that objects can be two temperatures at the same time on the quantum level. 5. Quantum Teleportation Have you ever watched a sci-fi show like Star Trek and wished that their teleportation technology was real? We could completely eliminate travel time!! Well, quantum teleportation is actually a thing, but it's not something that could allow actual objects to be moved from place to place. 4. Quantum Life It has always been thought that the behaviors of particles on the quantum scale, such as entanglement, were limited to inorganic molecules, but recent studies have suggested some bacteria can be quantum entangled. The weirdness of quantum physics is typically thought of as being something that happens on the minute scale, far smaller than bacteria, but there’s an area of study looking at where the boundary between the quantum world and our world actually is, and things don’t appear to be clear cut. 3. New Particles The standard model of particle physics is the theory that classifies all known elementary particles, as well as describing three of the four fundamental forces. It includes ones you'll have heard of, like electrons, the three types of neutrino, and quarks… and a few you may not have heard of like tau, muon, boson, and gluon particles. 2. Bell’s Theorem Bell’s Theorem, named after John Stewart Bell, is a way to distinguish the properties of the quantum world from that of classical physics. It says that ‘no physical theory of local hidden variables can ever reproduce all of the predictions of quantum mechanics'… which means, in simpler terms, that looking for hidden reasons to explain why things are behaving in the way in which they are will never explain the full story. 1. Hawking Radiation The most influential physicist of our time, Stephen Hawking, progressed our understanding of the quantum world an incredible amount… but possibly his greatest discovery was the one named after him… Hawking radiation. As we know, black holes are incredibly dense objects, so much so that even light cannot escape their grasp. Or can it??

Check out the Most EXPENSIVE Animal Fluids In The World! From some of the strangest liquids found in animals to other rare fluids that get sold for millions, this top 10 list of most valuable animal liquids will absolutely amaze you!

Frog Poison ($100 per stick) There are countless different frog species that produce toxins, but thanks to a new super cleanse trend, there’s one frog whose poison commands serious amounts of cash to get a hold of. It’s a species of giant tree frog that are held in a cross shape on sticks before their backs are stroked to get them to release their toxic fluid. 9. Bird Saliva ($4,500 per pound) Chinese medicine uses a range of ingredients that seem unpalatable to people in the rest of the world, but bird saliva surely has to be one of the more unusual. The type that’s considered the most valuable is from swiftlets, who live in caves around the Indian Ocean, South Asia, northern Australia, and the Pacific islands. They build their nests with their saliva, which helps them to stick to the vertical walls, and its these nests that are highly sought after. 8. Cow Milk ($172 per gallon) Cow milk is the most popular type of milk that's drunk worldwide… so much so that humans drink more of it every year than they do human milk! But how much would you be willing to pay for a gallon of it? Typically at your local store, it'll cost no more than a few dollars, but there's one type that'll set you back a lot more than that, as it costs 172 dollars per gallon. 7. Manuka Honey ($8,000 per gallon) Bees are incredibly important to our ecosystem because of the way that they pollinate most of the important crops and flowers that we need to survive, but for bee farmers, one of the most lucrative things about them is the honey that they produce. 6. Insulin ($9,400 per gallon) Insulin is a hormone that’s present in our bodies and controls the absorption of sugars from the blood into the liver, fat, and skeletal muscle cells. It’s important to have the right amount of insulin to regulate blood sugar levels, and those with diabetes either have too much or too little. For those who don’t produce enough of it, the only option is to inject it whenever needed. But where do you get supplies of insulin to do this? 5. Horseshoe Crab Blood ($60,000 per gallon) Horseshoe crabs are found in shallow waters around the world and first originated around 450 million years ago, so they are often referred to as living fossils. While they are popular in some cuisines, one species is particularly sought after because of its use in medical science. 4. Bear Gall Bladder Bile ($220,000 per pound) Gall bladders are the organs that connect between the liver and the small intestine, and stores the bile that’s created by the liver. After you’ve eaten, it’s empty because the bile has been used up, but then it gradually fills again ready for the next meal that needs to be digested. 3. King Cobra Venom ($153,000 per gallon) King Cobras are undoubtedly one of the most recognizable species of snake in the world because of their hoods and hisses. They are found in the forests of India and throughout southeast Asia and are the world's longest venomous snakes, reaching a length of up to 18 feet (5.5 m). Although they are called a ‘Cobra', they aren't actually part of the same genus as other cobras- instead being the only member of their own genus called Ophiophagus. 1. Deathstalker Scorpion Venom ($39 million per gallon) Not only is the deathstalker scorpion’s venom the most expensive fluid that’s extracted from an animal, but it’s also the most expensive of any liquid on earth- costing around 39 million dollars per gallon. Of course, no one ever gets hold of it in such a large quantity. Each scorpion is milked by hand, though, and only produces two milligrams of venom each time.

ROMAN COINS IN A CHERRY ORCHARD In July 2015, a Swiss farmer noticed something glimmering in a molehill. After noticing he had stumbled upon something of potential value, the man contacted the regional archaeological service, who proceeded with a months-long excavation. Much to the farmer’s - and everyone else’s - surprise, his discovery turned out to be a stash of over 4,000 gold and silver Roman-era coins, weighing in at a total of 33 pounds (15 kg). 8. ABBEY OF CLUNY TREASURE A large collection of medieval treasure was unearthed in September 2017 during excavations at the Abbey of Cluny, a former Benedictine monastery in Saône-et-Loire, France. The hoard contained 2,200 silver deniers and oboles, 21 Islamic gold dinars, and various other gold objects, including a signet ring. It was the largest-ever discovered cache of silver deniers, as well as the first time silver deniers, Arab gold coins, and a signet ring were discovered buried together. 7. APOLLONIA GOLD In 2012, a university student participating in an excavation of a Crusader castle about 25 miles north of Tel Aviv found 108 gold coins valued in excess of $100,000. Heads of the archaeological project confirmed the discovery, which was made in Apollonia National Park. 6. The Cuerdale Hoard In 1840, a work crew repairing the embankment of the Ribble River in Cuerdale, England uncovered a lead box containing the largest Viking treasure trove ever found. In total, over 8,600 items were documented, including jewelry, silver ingots, and silver coins. 5. The Staffordshire Hoard Metal detecting enthusiast Terry Herbert made the discovery of a lifetime on a piece of freshly-plowed farmland in Staffordshire, England in 2009, when he happened upon the biggest Anglo-Saxon hoard of gold and silver metalwork ever found. After digging up some 244 pieces, Herbert decided to leave the rest of the work to the professionals and contacted a government official. 4. THE SRODA TREASURE In June of 1985, a vase was found beneath the foundation of an old building that was being demolished in the Polish town of Środa Śląska to make way for a local telephone exchange building. The vase contained over 3,000 Prague groschen silver coins dating back to the 14th century; however, no serious archaeological inquiries were carried out immediately following the discovery. 3. THE BACTRIAN GOLD The Bactrian gold offers a unique glimpse at modern-day Afghanistan’s ancient culture. It was excavated in 1978 by Russian archaeologist Viktor Sarianidi in the northern Afghan province at a site called Tillya Tepe, which translates literally to “Golden Hill.” 2. THE PANAGYURISHTE TREASURE On December 8, 1949, three brothers named Pavel, Petko, and Mikhail Deikov found what they initially thought was a strange whistle while digging for clay at a ceramic factory near Panagyurishte, Bulgaria. Thinking they’d turned up some brass Gypsy instruments, the brothers continued digging and found more bizarre objects. 1. Spillings Hoard In July 1999, a team of reporters from Swedish Television went out to Spilling farm on the island of Gotland in Sweden. They were out filming a segment on the problem of looting in archaeological sites with several archaeologists. Previously, the owner of the farm Bjorn Engstrom, had found about 150 silver coins and bronze objects. While this is pretty cool, it’s nothing compared to what happened next.

Flamethrower Gauntlets Fire is often a superpower that many people want to have despite its destructive capabilities. Usually, the problem with literal firepower is control. So for inventor Allan Pan, he wanted to give himself, and potentially others, a gadget that would ensure that the person would have control over the fire that they "make". So, he made punch-activated flamethrowers that would only work when certain criteria were met. 8. Bulletproof Armor In this day and age there are many items that can make you "bulletproof" to a certain extent. However, most things, including Kevlar, SWAT shields, and more only protect a certain part of your body. The ideal scenario would be where “bullet proof” meant that our whole body could be protected from bullets. Former Mythbuster and grand inventor Adam Savage took on the challenge of making a literal suit of armor that would be bulletproof. But more specifically, he decided to make the Iron Man Mark II armor. 7. Electronics Control Many tech companies have implemented strategies that are meant to allow users of various electronic devices to control them with simpler methods, including face recognition software or using voice commands. But, one company decided that they wanted to take that a step further and make it even easier. So they made the Thalmic Labs’ Myo Armband. 6. Super Strength All of us have adrenaline and when it kicks in, it can give us a rush of extra strength needed to do incredible things. However, it's not constant, and will burn out, so many companies, including the military, have been working on a way to give soldiers constant superstrength in the field, and while it isn’t adrenaline, the solution is pretty cool. Exoskeletons! 5. Sticky Gloves For the character Spider-Man, one of his important powers is that his skin (and by extension his suit) allows him to cling to just about anything (for the most part). Though believed to be fictional outside of certain animals, many companies, including the military have been working on making gloves that can do just that. 4. Thermal Cameras A more basic superpower, but one that is still very useful, is the ability to use "super vision" to see inside a building to determine who or what is inside before you penetrate it. This can come in many forms, including X-Ray vision and even a radar sense like Daredevil. However, one that is actually in use by many law enforcement agencies today, is Thermal Vision cameras. 3. Flight Flight continues to be one of the biggest things that humans want in terms of super powers. Mainly because even though we can fly in planes and helicopters, we can't just spread our wings and fly ourselves. Or at least, not yet. But over the many decades, the military and several private investors have tried to make their own jetpack, hovercraft, flying machines, and more. 2. Enhanced Hearing Any enhancement of one of the five main senses can be considered a superpower, and to that end, enhanced hearing is something that is not only available, it's used regularly by many people in the form of hearing aids. In fact, there are some who use hearing aids to such effect that they feel they hear better than they ever heard before. Super hero gadgets are already at work! 1. Invisibility Invisibility is right up there with flying for one of the top super powers that people want. While it may be seen as a pretty sneaky power, since why do you want to be invisible anyway? But, as you know it is a great way to hide if someone is after you or if you want to disappear in a crowd! I mean, I don’t know who is after you, but it was very useful for Harry Potter!

Sadd-el-Kafara, Egypt When you think of the amazing engineering feats of the Ancient Egyptians, one of the first things that comes to mind are the Great Pyramid at Giza. However, the Ancient Egyptians managed many amazing engineering feats, including what is most likely the oldest dam in the world known as Sadd el-Kafara. 7. Hypogeum of Hal-Saflieni, Malta Discovered in 1902 in Malta, the Hal-Saflieni Hypogeum is one of the world’s best preserved prehistoric sites. Dating back to 3300 BC, the place is about 6000 years old. This Neolithic, subterranean structure is carved from solid rock and went at least three stories deep. It consists of an underground network of alcoves and corridors that later builders expanded as the years went by creating a type of labyrinth. Over the next few thousand years the place was used as a sanctuary and a necropolis. 6. The Stepwell of Chand Baori, India This 13-story-deep step-well located in a small village in India is one of the most awe-inspiring visuals you might ever encounter. Built around 900 AD by King Chanda of the Nikumbh Dynasty, the stepwell has 3500 narrow steps that go down 20 meters to the bottom. It is one of the deepest and largest stepwells in India, if not THE largest. 5. Aqueduct of Segovia, Spain Located in the town of Segovia, an hour north of Madrid, the Aqueduct is one of the best-preserved Roman aqueducts in the world. Built in the first century AD under Emperor Trajan, the aqueduct was an impressive construction with two tiers of arches, bringing water from 10 miles (16km) away from the Frio River. It was built using around 24,000 granite blocks without using mortar. 4. Puma Punku, Bolivia Puma Punku, whose name means Doorway of the Puma, is part of a larger archaeological complex known as Tiahuanacu, an ancient city part of an important civilization before the Inca Empire. The Tiwanaku empire flourished between 300 and 1000 AD. 3. El Mirador, Guatemala The ancient city and pyramid complex of El Mirador in Guatemala was an enormous Maya settlement that reached its peak from around the 6th century BC to the 1st century AD. The pyramid of La Danta is the largest known pyramid in the Maya world and is almost the same size as the pyramids in Egypt. At 230 feet tall (70 m), it is considered by some archaeologists to be one of the most massive ancient structures in the world and THE largest pyramid in the world in terms of mass as it contains some 99 million cubic feet of rock (2803368 cubic meter) (but that is still up for debate). 2. The Tower of the Winds, Athens Also known as the Clock of Andronicus Cyrrhestes, this octagonal marble structure can be found in the Roman agora of Athens. Constructed about 100-50 BC, the building has 8 sides, each of which faces the point on a compass. Each side also has an ornate frieze that is said to depict one of the Greeks’ eight wind deities. 1. Leshan Giant Buddha, China Located in the Shizhong District of China, the Leshan Giant Buddha stands 71 meters high, making it the largest cliff rock carving in the world. The statue, which is located at the intersection of 3 rivers, is said to have been built as a way to slow down the fierce current. Boats often capsized in the area, so in 713 AD Monk Haitong recruited a team to build the towering statue. He spent 20 years begging to get enough money to start the project.

Poisonous Cave The Movile Cave is located on a barren, desolate plain in southeast Romania’s Constanta county, near the Bulgarian border and the Black Sea. It was discovered in 1986 by workers who were testing the ground to see if it was a suitable place for a power plant. 7. Giant Lemurs In early 2015, divers and paleontologists discovered a graveyard full of extinct giant lemur remains in a water-filled cave in Madagascar. The bones were found in Tsi-man-ampet-sotsa National Park at the bottom of Aven Cave, along with the remains of several other species, including turtles, rodents, crocodiles, and an extinct flightless bird similar to an ostrich, known as the elephant bird. 6. Glow Worms On New Zealand’s North Island, there’s a cave that’s known for its population of Arachnocampa luminosa, a glow-worm species found exclusively within the country. It’s part of the Waitomo cave system and is a tourist attraction, offering boat rides underneath the glimmering worms. 5. World’s Earliest Winery Have you ever wondered about the oldest shoe in the world? For those of you that have, the oldest-known leather shoe, a 5,500-year-old perfectly-preserved moccasin, was discovered in an Armenian cave near the village of Areni. Archaeologists returned to the site in 2007 for further exploration and found an ancient large-scale alcohol production facility, including vats used for trampling grapes by foot, dried vines, fermentation containers, and sampling cups. 4. The Lupercal In 2007, an Italian team of archaeologists discovered a cave that, until then, only existed in Roman mythology. The 26-foot-high (8 meter) cave, believed to be the Lupercal, was found 52 feet (16 meters) underneath Palatine Hill, near the ruins of Emperor Augustus’s palace. In fact, the archaeologists who found the Lupercal were doing restoration work on the decaying House of Augustus. The newly-uncovered cave contained shells, mosaics, and marble. 3. Murals of the Life of Buddha In 2007, a villager in a remote region of Nepal led an international team of archaeologists to a cave containing 55 previously unknown paintings depicting the life of Buddha. The team was already in the region restoring paintings in a 15th-century monastery, and asked the local if he knew of any other ancient artwork. He remembered seeing the cave paintings as a child and took them there. 2. Snottite Also known as cave slime or snoticles, snottite is an abundance of bacterial growth resulting in a slime that drips from the walls and ceilings of some caves. As you can probably guess, it was named after its mucus-like consistency and texture. 1. Olm Salamander In the caves of Slovenia and Croatia dwells a pale, pinkish salamander that is almost entirely blind. The olm salamander adapted to life in dark caves by developing various “super senses,” including the ability to sense electricity and, possibly, magnetic fields.

Christmas Island Crab Bridge Every year, Christmas Island is home to one of the most incredible animal migrations in the world, where 50 million red crabs make their way to the sea to spawn. The timing of the event is dictated by the phases of the moon and sees the females release billions of larvae into the sea, before returning back to their forest burrows where they live for the rest of the year. 9. Bukit Timah Expressway Eco-Link, Singapore The Bukit Timah Expressway Eco-Link was built in 2013 at a cost of 16 million dollars and became Southeast Asia’s first ecological bridge. It was constructed to connect the Bukit Timah nature reserve and the Central Catchment nature reserve after the two were separated by the Bukit Timah Expressway in 1986. 8. Blue Penguin Underpass, New Zealand Blue penguins, also known as Kororas, are the smallest species of penguin in the world, but some that live in New Zealand face a particularly treacherous journey. Those that live near the town of Oamaru have had to cross a busy road in the harbor to get between the sea and their nests… something they need to do every day in order to provide food to their young. 7. The Interstate-90 Overpass, Washington The I-90 is the longest highway in the US, at a length of 3,020 miles, but its route in Washington state that passes east of Snoqualmie Pass has split the north and south Cascades, which means animals trying to get between the two have a treacherous path to take. 6. Hume Highway Rope Bridge, Australia The Hume highway between Seymour and Benalla in northeast Victoria, Australia, is a 4 lane interstate freeway with 10,000 cars passing every day that split the ecosystem on either side, making it virtually impossible for any animal to cross. Of particular concern were squirrel gliders, whose populations are falling because of losing their habitat, and a decreasing gene pool. 5. Turtle Tunnel, Japan In Japan’s Nara prefecture, rail officials were facing a problem. Because of the closeness of the railway line to the ocean, turtles were trying to cross the tracks with disastrous consequences. In particular, the points were a problem because when the point blades moved, turtles were occasionally being squashed between them. 4. Toad Tunnel, California In 1995, following the completion of the Pole Line Road overpass over the I-80 in Davis, California… it was decided that something had to be done for local frog populations to help them cross. The 6-inch-wide Davis Toad Tunnel was built at a cost of 14 thousand dollars and has since become a local attraction. 3. Mandai Eco-Link, Singapore Following the success of the Bukit Timah eco-bridge, a new animal crossing has been constructed in the city of Mandai in Singapore as part of a huge project to create a nature precinct of 5 wildlife parks. The bridge is needed to minimize the impact caused by the construction of the hubs, and also to help animals move between the different areas once it's completed in 2023. 2. Bee Highway, Norway Bee colonies around the world are under threat of collapse because of human behavior such as the use of pesticides and construction in their habitats, so the authorities in Oslo, Norway, have come up with an ingenious solution- what they call the Bee Highway. 1. Highway 9 Wildlife Crossing Project, Colorado Colorado’s 11-mile-long Highway 9 between Green Mountain Reservoir and Kremmling bisects a large area of wildlife habitat and migration routes, which previously saw an average of 63 carcasses being found each winter, most of which were of mule deer.

METAL BALLS IN THE DEEP SEA In January 2015, scientists aboard the German research vessel Sonne were searching for deep-sea creatures several hundred miles east of Barbados when they made a perplexing discovery. Instead of catching marine life, the net the researchers were using dragged up balls of manganese ore, ranging in size from golf balls to softballs. 7. PURPLE BALLS IN THE DESERT One day in February 2013, a patch of thousands of purple balls appeared seemingly out of nowhere in the middle of the desert in Vail, Arizona. They were found by a woman named Gerardine Vargas and her husband while they were out photographing local scenery. The spheres caught the couple’s attention when they noticed something “glittering in the sun.” 6. KLERKSDORP SPHERES The Klerksdorp spheres are small round and disc-shaped objects that were collected from pyrophyllite mines near Ottosdal, South Africa. They range in diameter from 0.2 to almost four inches (0.5-10 cm) and are composed of either hematite or wollastonite mixed with small amounts of hematite and goethite, and in some cases, pyrite. 5. DIQUIS SPHERES In 1939, StandardFruit Company workers clearing land in Costa Rica’s Diquís Valley began unearthing nearly perfectly round stone spheres of varying sizes, the largest of which weighs over 16 tons and exceeds 6.6 feet (2 meters) in diameter. To this day, nobody knows for sure when, how, or why the spheres were created, but a few theories have gained credibility throughout the academic community. 4. SPACE BALLS Villagers in southern Spain were shaken in November of 2015 when a series of three “space balls” plummeted to the ground within a few-week timespan. The first ball was discovered by two shepherds on November 3 in Calasparra. Just days later, another one turned up in Villavieja, and the third ball was discovered shortly thereafter in Elda. 3. CHAMP ISLAND SPHERES The Arctic Ocean is home to three neighboring groups of islands that make up the Franz Josef archipelago. In total, the archipelago consists of 191 islands, which are located several hundred miles north of the Russian mainland. Champ Island is the southernmost island of the central cluster, known as the Zichy group. 2. MOQUI MARBLES Throughout Utah and Arizona, hikers frequently encounter a sight that they might be quite shocked by if they’re not expecting it: round, iron-coated stones that litter the ground, often by the hundreds. The strange chocolate-colored spheres, known as the moqui marbles, range in diameter from a fraction of an inch, or about the size of a pea, to several inches. 1. MORE SPACE BALLS In January 2016, residents in the northern Vietnamese province of Tuyen Quang heard what sounded like thunder, despite there being no signs of rain. Upon investigating the source of the noise, the frightened locals discovered three metal balls that had apparently fallen from the sky. The balls measured between 15 and 40 inches across, with the heaviest one weighing nearly 100 pounds (45 kg). Luckily, nobody was injured in their path.

Disappearance of the Kaz II On April 15, 2007, a trio of novice sailors departed from the Australian Whitsunday islands in a newly-purchased yacht called the Kaz II. The skipper, Des Batten, and two brothers named Peter and John Tunstead, were headed home to Western Australia and expected the trip to take around two months. 7. Cannibal Shark In November 2003, researchers tagged a nine-foot-long female great white shark off the southwestern Australian coast with the goal of recording her behaviour, ambient temperatures and depth. According to data, four months later she dove to a depth of roughly 1,900 feet (580 meters), suggesting she was attacked by something much bigger in the depths of the ocean. 6. 1968 Submarine Disappearances In 1968, four naval submarines mysteriously vanished. It was the deadliest post-World War II year for submariners. The disappearances occurred in the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. In total, 318 sailors from Israel, the Soviet Union, France, and the United States were never seen again and were presumed to have entered eternal rest at sea. 5. Bermuda Triangle The Bermuda Triangle is a roughly 500,000-square-mile parcel of ocean between Bermuda, the Greater Antilles, and the Atlantic coast of the Florida panhandle. It’s infamous for its unexplainable disappearances over the years, including over 50 ships and at least 20 airplanes. 4. The Phantom Island of Bermeja To the northwest of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula in the Gulf of Mexico lies an island - well, not anymore, actually. The uninhabited island is - or was - known as Bermeja and it first appeared on a Portuguese map in 1535. Maps drawn by Spanish explorers during the 16th and 17th centuries commonly featured Bermeja, with just slight variations in its location and name, which was to be expected back then. 3. Milky Sea Phenomenon While most ocean mysteries of the past, such as the existence of monsters, have long-since been debunked by the scientific community, one strange marvel still exists, but is yet to be explained. It’s called the milky sea phenomenon. The spectacle was first mentioned by author Jules Verne in 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. It wasn’t recorded in modern logs until 1995, when the British merchant vessel the SS Lima made note of it while sailing in the Indian Ocean. 2. Blobus Purplus In 2016, scientists from Ocean Exploration Trust aboard the research ship E/V Nautilus discovered an enigmatic purple blob on the ocean floor near the Channel Island National Marine Sanctuary off California, deep in the Arguello Canyon. They recovered the specimen using a remotely operated vehicle and once they brought it up, everyone on board was confused. 1. “Bloop” Sound In 1997, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration recorded an extremely loud, ultralow-frequency, never-before-heard sound in the South Pacific. If you don't remember, here it is.

Haast’s Eagle Known in Maori legend as the Pouakai, Haast’s eagle was endemic to New Zealand and went extinct relatively recently, between 500 and 600 years ago. Even today’s largest birds of prey are small compared to the Haast’s eagle. Modern species such as the Philippine, wedge-tailed, and harpy eagle typically have a wingspan of around seven feet (2.13 m) and weigh around 15 pounds (6.7 kg). 7. Megatherium The megatherium was the largest genus of ground sloth, and one of the biggest land mammals, to ever exist. In 2010, a geologist with the Brazilian Geological Survey went to investigate rumors of some massive tunnels and caves in the state of Rondonia. When he arrived, he realized that these caves were not created by water as previously thought, it didn’t look natural. Other geologists in Brazil started investigating similar caves. 6. Meganeura Meganeura was a prehistoric genus of insects related to the modern dragonfly that lived around 300 million years ago, during the Carboniferous period. These bugs existed long before the dinosaurs, dominating the earth for millions of years alongside other large insects, and thrived in humid wetlands. 5. Terror Birds Phorusrhacidae, more commonly known as terror birds, are an extinct group of huge, carnivorous, flightless birds. They lived between 62 to 1.8 million years ago, during the Cenozoic era. During that time, terror birds were the largest species of apex predator in what is now South America. 4. Pulmonoscorpius Pulmonoscorpius translates to “breathing or lung scorpion.” This gigantic creature lived between 330 and 345 million years ago, during the Visean epoch of the Carboniferous Age. However dangerous they may be, today’s scorpions are typically quite small in size. In contrast, Pulmonoscorpius grew up to 30 inches long (76 cm). The scorpion had abnormally big eyes, indicating the likelihood of good vision. 3. Archelon Archelon is the largest-ever documented turtle. It lived in the northern US during the Late Cretaceous epoch, sometime between 100.5 and 66 million years ago. This marine turtle far outsized even today’s biggest species. The largest known specimen measured 15 feet (4.57 meters) from head to tail and 13 feet (3.95 meters) from flipper to flipper. It weighed 4,900 pounds (2,200 kg). 2. Josephoartigasia Monesi The capybara is the largest living rodent, weighing up to 146 pounds (66 kg). Josephoartigasia monesi, also known as the giant pacarana, was much larger. In fact, it was the largest rodent ever to exist and resembled something out of a horror movie. This extinct South American species lived between two and four million years ago, during the Pliocene and Pleistocene eras, and may have weighed up to a ton (2,000 lb). 1. American Lion The African lion is the second-largest cat in the world, with males sometimes exceeding 550 pounds (250 kg). Between 340,000 and 11,000 years ago, during the Pleistocene epoch, an even bigger lion existed throughout the savannahs and grasslands of North America. Panthera atrox, also known as the American lion, was one of the largest known big cats to ever exist.

From knowing what they sounded like to other unsolved mysteries about dinos, this top 10 list of strangest facts about dinosaurs science still can't explain will amaze you!

The First Dinosaur We have a pretty good idea of how far dinosaurs go back, but what we don’t know is when it all started for these guys. What was the first dinosaur?? The information we have is changing all the time. Until relatively recently, it was believed to be the Eoraptor, found in a rock in Argentina estimated to be about 231 million years old. 8. Hot or Cold Blooded? You might be forgiven for believing that dinosaurs are cold-blooded creatures. We associate them with reptiles and lizards meaning that they depend on the environment to regulate their body temperature. Scientists assumed that if this were the case, dinosaurs would have been slow, lumbering creatures. 7. The Biggest Dinosaur Since dinosaur fossils are so old, and usually found in pieces, it isn’t easy to gather information and put the pieces together. When it comes to determining the biggest dinosaurs, it’s a tiny bit complicated! The heaviest dinosaur is believed to be the argentinosaurus, a type of Titanosaur which include the largest land animals known to have existed. Anything with “titan” has to be huge, right? 6. What did they sound like? When we think of dinosaur noises the sound of roaring usually comes to mind because that’s what we’ve seen in movies. When you picture a dinosaur, it’s running around and roaring like a lion. Paleontologists have taken a closer look at dinosaur skulls and at the evolution of the voice box. 5. Dino Accessories There is an ongoing debate over whether dinosaurs had feathers or not. Recent evidence has been found to suggest that they were. But besides all that, everyone is also wondering why they have so many things attached to their heads and bodies. Horns, spikes, frills, crests… there were some good-looking dinos roaming around out there back in the day. As for what these things were used for, as you can guess, there is much speculation. 4. Were they pack hunters? As seen in Jurassic Park, one of the scariest things about velociraptors is the way they hunted in packs. It looks and sounds freaky but is this detail just a fictional embellishment? There’s evidence that dinosaurs walked alongside each other, as seen by their fossilized footprints. But for all we know they were chilling rather than hunting. 3. Dinosaur Colors What color were dinosaurs? When we recreate them, we have to use our imaginations, because the remains we have found are so old. The old image of green and brown dinos with reptilian skin has kind of gone out the window as experts focus on the idea of bird-like feathers and plumage. 2. Learning to Fly The remains of dinosaurs like the pterodactyl show that some of these ancient creatures had wings and were able to fly. How they actually did this is open to speculation. Birds reportedly let their young fall out of the tree a few times to get their wings flapping and it could have happened that way for dinos. Or they could have learnt by taking off from ground level. It’s a prehistoric mystery! 1. Is Jurassic Park Possible? Dinosaurs were well and truly thrown back into the public eye when Jurassic Park was released in 1993, directed by Steven Spielberg and based on the novel by Michael Crichton. In case, for some reason, you haven’t seen this classic monster romp, it involves the cloning of dinos from blood found in ancient mosquitoes preserved in amber.

Most EARTH SHATTERING Facts About Gravity!
Most EARTH SHATTERING Facts About Gravity!
3 months ago
Check out the Most MYSTERIOUS Facts About Gravity! From strange facts about how gravity works to other mysterious forces on earth and other planets, this top 10 list of earth shattering gravity facts will amaze you! Subscribe For New Videos! goo.gl/UIzLeB Watch our "DEADLIEST Animals In Africa!" video here: ruvideos.org/RKvMhCziPNM-video.html Watch our "Most TERRIFYING Extinct Creatures Ever!" video here: ruvideos.org/ZQ2duvyaqfw-video.html Watch our "AMAZING Animal Superpowers!" video here: ruvideos.org/RWrJtOVN_y4-video.html 10. Birds In Space Could a bird survive in space? While we have taken several different kinds of animals up into space with us like dogs and monkeys, astronauts have never taken a bird into space. If we did would it still be able to fly? Birds are built for flying and take off and landing is adjusted for the earth’s gravity. In zero gravity on a space station, birds would still need to flap their wings to build up speed, and again to slow down. 9. It stops mountains from getting too high Have you ever asked yourself, why aren’t there any mountains taller than Mount Everest? Mount Everest is the tallest mountain on Earth at 8,850 meters (29,035 feet) above sea level. While there are some other mountains that are actually taller than Everest if you count the distance from the base to the summit, if you look at the world’s tallest mountains, they seem to be capped at about 10,000 meters or 6 miles high. 8. It interferes with your waterworks One of the unfortunate realities of being in space involves your bladder. The pressure exerted by gravity is crucial in knowing when you need to urinate. So guess what happens when you’re somewhere with zero gravity? That’s right, things can get wet and wild. 7. Gravity Research Foundation Gravity is a scientific fact accepted as part of our day-to-day lives, but there was a time when people weren’t so understanding. Gravitational concepts are credited to the discovery of Isaac Newton, when he saw an apple fall from the tree while he was thinking about the forces of nature. In the late 1600’s, you can imagine people no doubt didn’t really understand this idea, to many it was crazy. But even more recently, in the mid-20th century, some issues with gravity were brought up. 6. Why do flames look the way they do? Here’s a fact that may surprise you about gravity. Without it, we wouldn’t have flames the way that we know them: as rising upwards into a narrow tip, with a hint of blue at the base surrounded by orange. How do flames wind up that way in the first place? The answer is that gravity kind of squeezes them into that form. 5. Lagrange points A stunning way in which gravity demonstrates its power lies in Lagrange points. Named after mathematician Joseph-Louis Lagrange who thought of them in 1772, they are gravity zones in space created when two gravitational forces interact with one another - a classic example being the Earth and the moon. 4. Galileo Was Right! An American astronaut from 1971 got to teach a lesson in ancient physics out in the depths of space. One that involved the effect of gravity on falling objects. Galileo believed that all things essentially fell at the same rate. There was just one thing stopping them fromdoing so… air. He dropped a hammer and a feather simultaneously and sure enough the feather fell more slowly. 3. Star Formation Gravity is so powerful that it forces gases such as hydrogen and helium to collide together creating stars. The force of gravity becomes so strong that as the atoms collide, they create heat and fuse together. The heat generates pressure, pushing the atoms apart, but the gravity becomes stronger and pulls them together. 2. We don’t really understand it One of the most interesting things about gravity is that much of how it works is still a mystery. We know it exists but experts can’t explain everything about it. Seeing how it works with stuff like when you drop a feather in space or seeing what happens between planets is one thing. But there are various questions about gravity that still remain unanswered. 1. Flying on Titan I saved the fun for last! Titan is one of Saturn’s moons and is known for its super dense atmosphere and freezing temperatures. It is the 2nd largest moon in our solar system after Jupiter’s Ganymede. Though you’d need one heck of a protective suit to keep the elements out - it’s minus 289 degrees Fahrenheit by the way - there is an amazing thing you’d be able to do if you did manage to visit the place… fly!

Cuttlefish Deception is the cuttlefish’s claim to fame when it comes to their survival and sustenance. One of the trademark defensive and hunting strategies of the species is its ability to rapidly change its color, texture, and pattern. This is made possible by special skin cells called chromatophores. 8. Great White Shark The great white shark is considered one of the most powerful, and scariest apex predators in the world. This shark is most notable for its size, females can reach around 20 feet in length (6.1 m) and they can live to 70 years or more. They have six highly refined senses of smell, are shaped like a torpedo and we are now learning that they are much more intelligent than we first thought. 7. Asian Giant Hornet The Asian giant hornet is the embodiment of what it means to be an efficient predator. In just a few hours, 30 members of this invasive species can kill a colony of 30,000 honeybees simply by sitting outside their nest and capturing workers as they go in and out. To get the job done, the Asian giant hornet decapitates its victims using its mandibles. 6. Blue Whale This one might surprise you. Of course blue whales aren’t considered scary, unless you are krill of course! We don’t usually think of whales as being efficient predators but surprisingly, the blue whale has a very successful hunting rate. They are the largest animals ever known and can reach up to 34 meters long (111 feet). 5. ‘Deathstalker’ Scorpion The four-inch-long (10 cm) ‘deathstalker’ scorpion, also called the Israeli desert scorpion or the Omdurman scorpion, is considered small compared to many other scorpion species. However, its venom contains high amounts of toxins, making it the deadliest scorpion on earth out of 2,500 known existing species. 4. Black-Footed Cat At first glance, the adorable black-footed cat seems harmless and perhaps not much different than your furry companion at home. In fact, the species is smaller than the typical housecat, measuring between 14 and 20 inches long (36-52 cm) and around eight inches (20 cm) tall. On average, this tiny feline weighs between two and six pounds (1-3 kg). 3. Orcas Also known as the killer whale, orcas are not actually whales. They are the largest member of the dolphin family and they have become the top apex predator of the sea. Even surpassing great white sharks. They are social animals, often living in pods of 40 or more and they have adapted their behaviour and hunting techniques depending on the type of prey they are after. 2. African Wild Dog When it comes to Africa’s most vicious predators, the first thing that comes to mind for many, if not most people, are big cats such as lions, tigers, and cheetahs. However, the continent’s most efficient predator is the African wild dog, also known as the “painted wolf.” In fact, this species is one of the most impressive carnivores in the world. 1. Dragonflies Surprised?? Researchers at Harvard University determined in 2012 that dragonflies catch up to 95 percent of their prey on average, making them the deadliest predators on Earth. When it comes to hunting, they’re twice as successful as great white sharks and four times better than lions.

Kailasa Temple, India Kailasa Temple is the 16th of 34 cave temples and monasteries that are known as the Ellora caves in Maharashtra, India… It is famous for being the largest monolithic structure carved from a single piece of rock in the world!! It’s sheer size and the way it was constructed makes it stand out from all the others carved from the rock. 9. Wat Rong Khun, Thailand Wat Rong Khun, also known as the ‘White Temple', is one of the most recognizable temples in Thailand. By the end of the 20th century, the original temple on the site had fallen into a state of disrepair. With no funds available to fix it, a local artist instead raised the money himself to build a new temple, which opened in 1997. It's a Buddhist temple, with traditional design themes… 8. The Temples of Humankind, Italy The Temples of Humankind are in the foothills of the Alps in Northern Italy and are a series of subterranean temples about 100 feet underground. They were built by the Federation of Damanhur under the direction of their spiritual leader, with construction beginning in 1978 and being completed by 1991. 7. The Konark Sun Temple, India Built in the 13th century, Konark Sun Temple is on the northeastern coastline of Odisha, India. Its construction was ordered by King Narasingha I, and the temple was dedicated to the Hindu Sun God Surya. It was originally 200 feet tall, but it is now mostly in ruins and is currently half that height. 6. Arulmigu Sri Rajakaliamman, Malaysia I'm only going to say that once! Most temples in the world are built from stone or even gold… but this temple in Malaysia is made from the last thing you’d expect… glass! It’s in the country’s second biggest city, Johor Bahru, and while the site has been used as a place of religious significance for almost a century, it opened in its current form in 1991. 5. The Longmen Grottoes, China The Longmen Grottoes are a series of more than 2,300 grottoes and niches that are about 8 miles south of the city of Luoyang in China's Henan province. They were constructed over 5 centuries, and contain some of the finest examples of Chinese stone art to have ever been found. The majority of the grottoes are carved into the face of Mount Longmen, and they contain a total of more than 100,000 Buddhist statues and 2,800 inscriptions. 4. The Temple of the Feathered Serpent, Mexico The Temple of the Feathered Serpent is the third largest temple at Teotihuacan, one of the best preserved ancient cities of central Mexico. The 6 step pyramid was built in 200 AD from huge stone blocks and gets its name because of the representations of the Mesoamerican feathered serpent god on its sides. 3. Kamakhya Devi Temple, India The Kamakhya Devi Temple is located in the Western part of Guwahati city in India and is a shrine of Shaktism- the Hindu tradition that focuses on goddesses. This temple is dedicated to the mother goddess Kamakhya, who is a Hindu tantric goddess of desire. With a name that means ‘renowned goddess of desire’, she has been at this temple since 1645. 2. Sambor Prei Kuk, Cambodia Located in Cambodia’s Kampong Thom Province, Sambor Prei Kuk may not be one of the country’s most famous religious structures, but it’s still a site of historical importance. The name means ‘the temple in the richness of the forest’, and is on the site of Ishanapura, the capital city of the Chenla empire that ruled the region in the 6th and 7th centuries. 1. Solomon’s Temple Solomon's temple, also known as the first temple, was, according to the Bible, the Holy Temple in Jerusalem before it was destroyed in a siege of the city in 587 BC. It was said to have been built by King Solomon, dedicated to Yahweh, but was also used to worship Asherah, Baal, and a solar god at various times. Ritual sacrifice, cleansings, and sacred prostitution are said to have taken place here, and it's also where the ark of the covenant is thought to have been kept… Origins Explained is the place to be to find all the answers to your questions, from mysterious events and unsolved mysteries to everything there is to know about the world and its amazing animals!

Known as Sree Padmanabhaswamy (Pad-manaba-swamy) , the temple was built in the sixth century AD. The gilded temple is covered in gold and is very impressive. 7. THE TOMB OF QIN SHI HUANG For over two centuries, China’s first emperor, Qin Shi Huang, has remained undisturbed in a secret tomb in central China, buried in a hill and surrounded by a moat of poisonous mercury. Qin Shi Huang died in the year 210 BC. Due to both science and bureaucratic red tape, it’s unknown whether his tomb, which is suspected to hold answers to historical mysteries, will ever be opened. 6. ROOM 873 - FAIRMONT BANFF SPRINGS HOTEL The Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel is located among the beautiful Canadian Rockies in Alberta, but guests are attracted by more than the local scenery. Within the majestic hotel, which was built in 1888, there’s allegedly a boarded-up room with a dark history. 5. BASEMENT OF THE TAJ MAHAL Rumor has it that there’s an ancient and sacred temple hidden in the basement of the Taj Mahal. If you look closely at the magnificent structure, you’ll notice an inconspicuous passage that leads underground. The enclosure is secured by locked metal doors and is boarded up underneath the doors. 4. PABLO ESCOBAR’S SAFE In early 2016, workers tasked with demolishing the Miami mansion that once belonged to the notorious former drug kingpin Pablo Escobar discovered a metal safe. Escobar lived in south Florida throughout the 1980’s before being shot and killed by police in 1993 in his home country of Colombia. 3. THE HIDDEN FLOOR OF THE YANGGAKDO HOTEL If somehow you end up visiting North Korea, chances are you’ll stay at the Yanggakdo Hotel in the capital city of Pyongyang. Most foreigners are put up at the Yanggakdo Hotel because it’s easier for the Hermit Kingdom’s authorities to keep an eye on them. To keep visitors entertained, the hotel boasts four restaurants, a spa, massage parlor, bowling alley, pool tables, and a bar. 2. THE HALL OF RECORDS Many people believe that the ancient Egyptians possessed knowledge superior to that of modern society. This highly-advanced knowledge, along with historical records proving the existence of Atlantis, is thought by some to be stored in a secret, yet-undiscovered library called the Hall of Records. 1. APARTMENT 5A People throughout the world are familiar with the unexplainable disappearance of three-year-old Madeleine McCann during a family vacation in Praia da Luz, Portugal in 2007. In May of that year, little Madeleine and her siblings were left sleeping in apartment 5A of the Ocean Club Complex while their parents dined with friends at a nearby tapas restaurant.

Robobee First unveiled in 2013, Harvard’s Robobee project is still being continuously developed. At its core is a simple idea, it’s a miniature drone influenced by designs found in the insect world. Weighing just 175 mg, (that’s 14 times lighter than a penny), it looks almost delicate as you can see in this picture from Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. 9. Anti Reflective Film Moths have developed a number of ingenious adaptations to enable them to survive, and scientists are taking inspiration from them to develop new technologies. In particular, there's a water repellent coating on their eyes that allows them to see at night, while being one of the least reflective surfaces seen anywhere in nature. This means that they're virtually invisible to predators at night, but there's a range of ways that this can be useful. 8. The Dew Bank Water Bottle A beetle found in the Namibian desert, known as the ony-macris ungui-cularis, finds itself in an incredibly dry environment, so it has developed a unique way of collecting water. Early in the morning while fog covers the sand dunes, the beetle climbs to high points and positions itself in a way that encourages dew to collect for it to drink. 7. facetVISION Camera The face of photography is changing with the prevalence of smartphones that are equipped with powerful cameras, but they’re about to get a whole lot better. Much of the thickness of a smartphone is dictated by the size of the camera lens, which are typically no smaller than 5mm. But what if this could be reduced to just 2mm? 6. Antenna There’s a species of small parasitic fly, called the Ormia ochracea, which has an incredibly strong sense of hearing. The females have developed this ability to allow them to effectively track male crickets by listening out for their chirping and then laying their eggs on them. Unfortunately for the crickets, when the eggs hatch their larvae use their host as their first meal, but that’s a more gruesome story for another day. 5. Mirasol Low Voltage Display E-readers began life using e-ink that was limited to certain colors and had readability issues in sunlight so it was a natural step to look at new ways to improve their ability… and to do this, designers took inspiration from the animal kingdom- in particular, butterflies. 4. The Dragonfly As designers plan the buildings of the future, they need to take sustainability and eco-consciousness into account. One plan (of many) created by the Belgian architect Vincent Callebaut has taken inspiration from the design of the dragonfly to achieve these aims. 3. Honeycomb Tires For the most part, tires that rely on being filled by air work perfectly fine, but what if there was an alternative solution? Spurred on by difficulties faced by military vehicles where even ‘run flat' tires don't work very well, Resilient Technologies and Wisconsin-Madison's Polymer Engineering Centre realized that a honeycomb design was ideal. 2. Microneedle People with aichmophobia are scared of sharp objects, such as needles… but even if you don't have the phobia, getting an injection can be a rather unpleasant experience. This is partly because of the procedure taking place, but also because of the size of needle that’s being inserted. But what if the needle could be much smaller? That’s what researchers are hoping will be the case after taking inspiration from our friend, the Mosquito. 1. Mondo Spider Electric Vehicle This brings us to probably the coolest invention to have ever been built… the Mondo Spider Electric Vehicle. It was originally built by a team from Vancouver for Burning Man in 2006 but has recently been retrofitted to remove the petrol engine and replace it with a 5kWh (Kilowatt hour) Lithium Ion battery. The entire vehicle weighs 1600 pounds, is five feet tall and eight feet long. The skull topped throttles control the hydraulic powered arms, with a control system based on what you’d find in a tractor.

The Great Pyramids of Giza Initially, archaeologists failed to come up with an explanation for how the Great Pyramids of Giza were built. The blocks they’re made out of are so large and heavy, researchers couldn’t fathom how they were transported and assembled by collective manpower alone. There was also a lack of evidence at dig sites indicating how the job was done. 7. Atlantis Before I get to the theory about Atlantis being built by aliens, remember that most academics by now believe it is a fictional place to begin with. In 2018, a survey of paranormal beliefs known as the Survey of American Fears, which is conducted by Chapman University in California, determined that around 41 percent of Americans believe that ancient aliens visited Earth, while an astounding 57 percent of Americans believe that Atlantis existed. 6. Stonehenge One thing you’ll notice as a recurring theme is that a lot of theories about aliens building ancient structures stem from the belief that ancient people lacked the strength and technology to move large boulders and cuts of stone into place. Having been constructed with massive stones that were somehow transported hundreds of miles to the site from their quarry, Stonehenge is no exception. 5. Sacsayhuaman Sacsayhuamán is a 1,000-year-old fortress nestled in the Peruvian Andes, near the old Inca capital of Cusco. Some people believe that the builders of Sacsayhuamán had a little help from extraterrestrials, because it’s constructed out of stones that are not only enormous, but chiseled with such precision, they fit together perfectly - like a jigsaw puzzle. 4. Nazca Lines In the arid Peruvian Desert about 200 miles southeast of Lima, over 800 seemingly random lines are etched into the ground’s surface. They’re accompanied by 70 animal shapes, including a spider, monkey, humanoid, and hummingbird, just to name a few, and around 300 geometric designs. 3. The Sphinx When geologists examined weathering and erosion at the base of the famous Sphinx monument near the Great Pyramids of Giza, they determined that the structure may be up to 10,000 years older than originally thought. Although the findings have yet to be confirmed, proponents of ancient alien theories seem to have accepted the preliminary data as fact. 2. DERINKUYU Derinkuyu is a six-story underground city in Turkey that was carved out of bedrock. It can reasonably accommodate up to 20,000 people, along with food and water supplies, as well as some horses. The subterranean city includes living spaces and sections that were probably used as marketplaces, as well as training and recreational areas. Its entrance can only be closed from the inside. 1. Baalbek Located in the Beqaa valley of modern-day Lebanon, Baalbek was a Phoenecian city dedicated to the sky god Baal, which translated to ‘lord’ or ‘god’. Its history goes back 9,000 years to the Bronze Age. During Roman times, Baalbek was called Heliopolis and was dedicated to Zeus, the king of the gods. This newer city, Heliopolis, was built atop a huge rock platform that was likely the original site of Baalbek.

Przybylski’s Star Przybylski’s star, also known as HD 101065, is hidden within the Centaurus constellation in the southern sky, just beyond what our eyes can see. It’s about four times the mass of the sun and is cooking up elements not normally seen in stars, including uranium. While most stars don’t typically fuse anything heavier than nickel, Przybylski’s star seems to only form heavier elements, which are typically seen in violent events like supernovae. 7. Tabby’s Star Tabby’s star, more formally known as KIC 8462852, is located about 1,500 light years away, between the constellations Cygnus and Lyre. It was first discovered in 2009 by NASA’s Kepler Space Telescope and is hotter, brighter, and more massive than the Sun. Since its discovery, scientists have tracked the light it emits, looking for slight, periodic dips in brightness, which signals the possibility that it’s being orbited by one or more large objects - perhaps planets. 6. Methuselah Star HD 140283, nicknamed the Methuselah star (after the oldest man in the Bible), is the oldest-known star in the universe. Original estimates put the Milky Way star’s age at around 16 billion years old. This presented a major quandary for scientists, since the Big Bang, and thus the start of the universe, is believed to have occurred 13.8 billion years ago. 5. UY Scuti The biggest star known to man is the hypergiant UY Scuti, with a radius 1,700 times that of the Sun. UY Scuti was first catalogued in 1860 by German astronomers at the Bonn Observatory, under the name BD-12 5055. It was classified as a variable star after a second detection, during which astronomers noticed that it grows dimmer and brighter over a 740-day period. UY Scuti lies nearly 9,500 light years way, near the center of the Milky Way, within the constellation Scutum. 4. Vega Located just 25 light years from Earth, Vega is a bright, young star that’s visible from the Northern Hemisphere during the summer. Along with the stars Deneb and Altair, it forms an asterism known as the Summer Triangle, and is part of the constellation Lyra. 3. The Massive R136A1 The big guy is the most massive known star. It lies about 163,000 light-years away, in the Milky Way satellite galaxy of the Large Magellanic Cloud, in the Tarantula Nebula. It’s part of a cluster of 200 extremely bright stars that was first discovered in 1960 by astronomers working at Radcliffe Observatory in South Africa. NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope later identified R136A1 as the brightest star within the cluster. 2. The Smallest Known Star In 2014, scientists discovered the smallest known star, just 40 light-years away from Earth. Its formal name is 2MASS J05233822-1403022, and if it were much smaller, it wouldn’t even qualify as a star. This star is smaller than Jupiter and burns at just 3,272 degrees Fahrenheit - about one-third the surface temperature of our Sun. It shines one- eight thousandth (1/8,000) as brightly as the Sun, and although it’s close, it can only be seen with a powerful telescope. 1. Neutron Star PSR J1748-2446 This neutron star, PSR J1748-2446, claim to fame is its status as the fastest-spinning celestial object in the Universe. Its surface is harder than a diamond, and its density is 50 trillion times greater than that of lead. And, with a magnetic field a trillion times more intense than the Sun, it’s the most extreme neutron star.

The Northwest Angle The northernmost part of the contiguous United States is a 123-square-mile piece of land that’s located at the northwestern corner of Minnesota’s Lake of the Woods. It’s known as the Northwest Angle and can only be accessed by boat or by first crossing through Canada. Much of it is owned by the Red Lake Nation of the Chippewa Tribe. 7. The Diomede Islands The Diomede islands are a pair of rocky islands situated in the middle of the Bering Strait, between Alaska and Siberia. The Big Diomede island belongs to Russia, while the smaller one belongs to the United States. Despite being only 2.5 miles (4 km) apart from one another, the islands straddle the International Date Line, which marks the border between Russia and the United States. The islands therefore lie within two time zones with a vast time difference. 6. Baarle -Hertog/Baarle-Nassau One of the world’s most elaborate international borders is that which zig-zags along the Belgian town of Baarle-Hertog and the Dutch town of Baarle-Nassau. The two countries agreed to install a series of white crosses throughout town, marked with either a “B” or an “NL” to identify what country a given area belonged to. This delineation of boundaries is so precise, the line runs through homes, storefronts, lawns, shops, and even a cafe. 5. Wagah-Attari Border Ceremony At first glance, there’s nothing unique about the Wagah border between Pakistan and India. Since 1959, however, this border has been the site of a daily flag-lowering ritual carried out jointly by the Border Security Force of India and the Pakistan Rangers. 4. Khunjerab Pass At an elevation of 15,397 feet (4,693 meters), the Khunjerab Pass, which marks the Pakistani and Chinese border, is the world’s highest paved international crossing. It’s also the highest point along the 807.8-mile-long (1,300 km) Karakoram Highway, which spans from the Punjab province of Pakistan into China, eventually becoming China National Highway 314. AND it’s one of the most dangerous roads in the world!! 3. DERBY LINE Much like the Baarle-Hertog/Baarle-Nassau border I told you about earlier, the Derby Line, which separates Vermont from Canada, runs straight through an ordinary town, and even through some people’s homes. It also runs through the town’s main street and library. 2. Pheasant Island Pheasant Island is a small island situated in the Bidasoa River between northern Spain and southern France. It’s just a fraction of a square kilometer in size, yet since 1659, ownership of this tiny island has passed between Spain and France more than 700 times. 1. Korea’s Demilitarized Zone The border between North and South Korea is known as the DMZ, or the Demilitarized Zone. This 2.5-mile-wide, 160-mile-long zone marks the cease-fire line that halted the brutal Korean War in 1953 via the Korean War Armistice Agreement. It is heavily fortified on both sides, both of whom are ever-prepared to go into battle if necessary.

They had Good Hygiene While you might think that people 1000 years ago weren’t too worried about being clean, archaeological evidence indicates that Vikings were much cleaner than most Europeans of their time. Artifacts found at Viking sites include an array of grooming tools made from animal bones and antlers, such as tweezers, combs, razors, and ear cleaners. 7. Notched Teeth Archaeologists have discovered hundreds of viking remains containing crescent-shaped, horizontal grooves carved into their front teeth and others so that it would be visible. Most of these teeth were found in eastern Sweden, and some more were discovered in England and Denmark. It’s possible that a dye or pigment was used to color the grooves, drawing more attention. 6. They Beat Columbus to the Americas In 1960, the remains of a 10th-century Viking settlement were discovered in Newfoundland, Canada at L’Anse aux Meadows. In 2016, National Geographic announced yet another discovery of a likely Viking site on the southernmost tip of Newfoundland. The site was discovered by National Geographic fellow Sarah Parcak, who’s an expert in using satellite images to detect buried structures. 5. They Did Not Wear Horned Helmets The stereotypical image of Vikings wearing horned helmets was at least partially the creation of contemporary European Christians, who strove to make Vikings look as barbaric as possible. They may have created the image of the horned helmet to resemble Satan’s horns. 4. They Did Not Call Themselves Vikings The Scandinavian countries as we know them didn’t exist during the Viking Age, which lasted roughly from 790 until 1066 AD. People settled in clans and tribes scattered throughout the region. At the time, other nations referred to people within the region as Norse, Norsemen, Danes, and “The Pagans.” It’s unknown what the Vikings referred to themselves as. 3. They Abandoned Sick Children Various cultures throughout history, including the Vikings, were known to “remove” the sick and disabled from society. The Vikings most likely did this because in a culture that depended on physical strength (like the Spartans), ailing members were perceived as unlikely to be able to survive on their own and contribute meaningfully. 2. Women’s Rights Viking women certainly weren’t considered equal to men, but Viking societies were far ahead of many other European cultures of the time when it came to women’s rights. Most Viking women were housewives and fulfilled “traditional” gender role duties. But some women were likely entrepreneurs in the textile industry, as well as warriors. 1. They Gave Us Popular Words Dozens of modern-day English words were derived from the Old Norse language that was spoken by the Vikings. Here are a few examples! “Ugly” is one English word that was inspired by Old Norse. When Vikings insulted one another, they often used the term “uggligr,” which stemmed from the word “ugga,” meaning “to fear.” I suppose the only thing scarier than a Viking, to some, would be an ugly one!

The Old Operating Theater Museum In early 19th-century England, surgery was performed without anesthesia. While the wealthy were usually lucky enough to have these unimaginably painful and invasive procedures carried out in their homes, people of lesser means were relegated to the additional discomfort of being operated on in hospital wards. 7. Mr. Straw’s House During the early twentieth century, a successful grocer named William Straw and his wife, Florence, raised two sons at their home in Worksop, England. The home was built in 1905, and in 1923, the couple redecorated it to reflect the styles of the time, with features such as dark furniture and wallpaper, patterned carpets, gilt-framed oil paintings, and thick curtains. 6. Notting Hill Posters The London Underground began upgrading their Notting Hill Gate station in West London in 2010. As workers carried out the renovations, they discovered a portion of tunnel that had been sealed off at the end of the 1950’s. The area was once used as a link to the Tube for passengers using the elevator, but lost its purpose when the station’s elevators were replaced by escalators. 5. The Ancient City of Qalatga Darband In September 2017, British archaeologists uncovered the remains of an ancient city thought to have been founded by Alexander the Great. The city, known as Qalatga Darband, had been “lost” for around 2,000 years. Researchers found it while flying drones in a previously out-of-bounds area in northern Iraq. 4. A Lost Chinese Shrine in Oregon During the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the city of Salem, Oregon was home to a crowded Chinatown filled with tenements, laundries, markets, brothels, and cookhouses. The Chinese population in Salem peaked at a reported 367 in 1890. These residents held a variety of jobs, working primarily in hotels, restaurants, fields, and railroad construction. 3. Fulling Mill Cottage In 2010, a 78-year-old recluse and former schoolteacher named Fred Saigeman passed away at his home in West Sussex, England. He bequeathed the thatched-roof home, which had been occupied by the Saigeman family since 1870, to a local cat charity known as Cat Welfare Sussex, under the condition that his pets would be cared for and that the home was protected from being demolished or redeveloped. 2. An Abandoned Apartment in Paris In 2010, a woman named Madame de Florian passed away in the South of France, where she had lived out the remainder of her life after escaping Paris on the eve of the invasion in June of 1940. To the astonishment of the executors of Madame de Florian’s estate, turns out she owned an apartment in the old theater district of Paris. 1. Shi Cheng The ancient city of Shi Cheng, which translates roughly to “Lion City,” was built in the eastern province of Zhejiang, China around 1,300 years ago. Shi Cheng, which was once the center of economics and politics in Zhejiang, was deliberately flooded in 1959 for a man-made lake and a government hydroelectric power station.

Emerald Green Pit Viper The emerald green pit viper was first discovered in the eastern Himalayan Mountains of the nation of Myanmar, formerly known as Burma, in 2002. Since the species was discovered relatively recently, there’s still a lot to learn about it. It belongs to a genus of at least 32 species of venomous pit vipers endemic to parts of Asia, including the Indian Subcontinent, Southeast Asia, China, and the Pacific Islands. 8. Giant Anaconda Also known as the green anaconda, the giant anaconda is the largest snake species in the world! While it might not be the longest, it is the biggest when it comes to its length-to-weight ratio. Do you know what the longest snake in the world is? Leave me your guess in the comments below!! The answer is coming up!! 7. Emerald Tree Boa The emerald tree boa can be found in the wetlands and tropical rainforests of several South American countries, including Venezuela, Colombia, Peru, Bolivia, Guayana, Suriname, and northwestern Brazil. It’s not dependent on open water, but often dwells along rivers, including the Amazon River. 6. Red Milk Snake The red milk snake inhabits a vast territory, from southern Canada down through the United States all the way to northern South America, so you may have even come across one! This snake prefers rocky environments, including hillsides, pastures, and woodland clearings. 5. Brazilian Rainbow Boa The Brazilian rainbow boa is found primarily in the Amazon river basin, as well as coastal Guyana, French Guiana, Suriname, and southern Venezuela. This species typically dwells near water in hot and wet tropical and subtropical broad-leaved forests. 4. San Francisco Garter Snake The San Francisco garter snake is one of the most endangered and beautiful serpents in North America. All known specimens live in the bayside and coastal wetlands of California’s San Mateo County. Known for its eye-popping coral, black, and deep red striped pattern, this species is officially on the Endangered List, with a remaining population of only one to two thousand adults. 3. Blue Viper Known more formally as the white-lipped island pit viper, this snake is found on Indonesia’s lesser Sunda Islands. It’s related to the white-lipped pit viper, which is endemic to Southeast Asia, but there’s a noticeable difference between the species. While most of them are emerald green in color, in certain places such as Komodo Island, you know, the one with the dragon, this snake can also come in a beautiful shade of light blue. 2. Eyelash Viper The eyelash viper is found throughout Central and South America. It’s a pit viper species that is named after a set of scales over its eyes that resemble eyelashes, cute right?? Scientists are still trying to figure out what these “eyelashes” are for. 1. Banded Sea Krait Also called the yellow-lipped sea krait, the banded sea krait is an amphibious snake species found in the Indo-Pacific Ocean. It’s named after the black vertical stripes that cover its white body. Many people are terrified of these snakes but they are actually pretty calm and quiet.

El Hombre Caimán The legend of El Hombre Caiman, or The Alligator Man, developed in the coastal town of Plato, Magdalena, located on the Colombian Caribbean coast. Before he became a monster, El Hombre Caiman was a fisherman named Saúl Montenegro. He was a womanizer and a peeping tom who enjoyed spying on women while they bathed in the Magdalena River. 7. El Pombero El Pombero, also known as the Kurahu-Yara, or “Owner of the Sun,” is a character from Guarani mythology. Depictions of him vary slightly between communities, but he’s typically described as a homely, small-statured, short-limbed humanoid creature. El Pombero has hairy feet that make him very stealthy and he can become invisible at will. 6. La Viudita The legend of La Viudita, or the black widow, is popular throughout Latin America. According to the story, she’s an alluring woman who takes to the streets after midnight, dressed in black from head-to-toe and wearing a veil. She targets drunk men with the goal of taking them to her home or another private setting. 5. El Sombreron The legend of El Sombreron supposedly began with a real villager, who dressed completely in black and rode a stern-faced horse. He was short and wore a large hat, as well as boots that made a lot of noise when he walked. This well-dressed man kept to himself and didn’t bother anyone. 4. La Tunda The myth of La Tunda is told throughout the Pacific coastal region of Colombia and Ecuador, and is particularly popular in the Afro-American community from Chocó. La Tunda is the daughter of the devil, who had children with the beautiful escaped slave of a Spanish merchant ship that ran aground on the northern coast of Ecuador during the 1530’s. 3. Acalica and La Madremonte Acalica, sometimes called “weather-fairies,” are mythical creatures from Bolivia that are rarely seen. They live in underground caves and are rumored to be able to control the weather. When they appear, they take the form of small, wisened men. 2.

The Crust is Peeling! In 1969, over a dozen people were killed in Portugal by a tsunami that was caused by a giant earthquake off the coast. An even larger earthquake had hit the area around 200 years ago, destroying the city of Lisbon and killing over 100,000 people. 7. Deepest Dive Ever In May of this year, the deepest dive in history was achieved by explorer and businessman Victor Vescovo. He descended 35,853 feet (10,927 meters) to the bottom of the Challenger Deep at the southern end of the Mariana Trench- and the deepest point on the planet. 6. Blob of Rock Triggers Earthquakes Every year, over 100 earthquakes of a magnitude of 4.0 or greater strike throughout the Hindu Kush mountain range, which stretches some 500 miles (800 kilometers) along the border of Afghanistan and Pakistan. Scientists aren’t sure why, but it’s one of Earth’s most seismically active regions, especially for intermediate-depth earthquakes, which form between 45 and 190 miles below the surface (70-300 kilometers). 5. The Great Whirl The Great Whirl was first recorded in 1866 by British geographer Alexander Findley. It’s a churning, clockwise ocean whirlpool the size of Colorado that appears off the coast of Somalia every spring. It’s so big, it can be seen from space, and recent satellite images reveal that it’s bigger and longer-lasting than previously thought. 4. Methane Fire-Breathing Mountain For more than 2,000 years, a mountain in Turkey has been steadily spewing fire. This strange formation is known as the Chimaera Seep, or the Flames of Chimaera. While it is true that the gods might be unhappy as the legend goes, according to a recent New York Times article, the flames are being caused by a bizarre geological phenomenon that scientists can’t quite explain. 3. Big Ocean Waves are Getting Bigger Due to an increase in extreme winds, ocean waves throughout the world are getting bigger. Good for surfers, not so good for coastlines. This was recently determined in a study by a pair of scientists from the University of Melbourne, Australia, who monitored changes in the ocean using 33 years of satellite data. It’s the biggest-ever collection of wind and wave data yet. 2. Pause in Earthquakes for California It’s been over a century since California has experienced a ground-rupturing, massive earthquake. The last time this happened was in 1918 and everyone has been expecting one any day now. David Jackson, professor emeritus at the University of California, Berkeley, expressed concern over the lack of seismic activity at a 2014 conference in Alaska, calling into question scientists’ data on historical earthquakes. 1. Radioactive Carbon Found in Ocean Trenches You might be surprised to hear that crustaceans living in the deepest parts of the ocean have been found to contain radioactive carbon. These elevated levels of radiocarbon were found in amphipods up to 7 miles (11 kilometers) beneath the surface, in the deep trenches of the Pacific Ocean.

The Princes in the Tower In 1483, the English king Edward IV died unexpectedly, leaving his 12-year-old son, Edward, next in line to the throne. The boy and his younger brother were promptly escorted to London by his Uncle Richard, Duke of Gloucester, and taken to the Tower of London which was, at the time, a luxurious royal residence where monarchs would traditionally spend the night before their coronation. 8. The Ark of the Covenant According to the Hebrew Bible, when the Ark of the Covenant was first built, it held the tablets that were engraved with the 10 commandments, and was kept at the temple of Solomon. According to legend, an army led by the Babylonian King, Nebuchadnezzar II, conquered Jerusalem in the sixth century BC and destroyed the temple. Since then, the true whereabouts of the Ark remains unknown. 7. The Sibiu Manuscript Discovered in 1961, the 450 page Sibiu Manuscript dates from between 1550 and 1570 and contains a series of drawings and technical information that was well ahead of its time. It’s thought to have been written by Conrad Haas, a military engineer who worked for the Kingdom of Hungary, and describes in detail his plans for three-stage rockets, manned rocket flights, liquid fuel, and various ideas for ballistics and artillery. 6. Hanging Gardens of Babylon Said to have been built by King Nebuchadnezzar II, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon were one of the 7 wonders of the ancient world. It was a structure made up of tiered gardens containing plants from across the Babylonian empire and was possibly built for the king's wife to remind her of the lush countryside when they were in the city. 5. The San Bernardo Mummies When you think of mummies, your first thoughts probably go to the ones that are found in the tombs of ancient Egypt, but the mummification process happens around the world, sometimes without any human involvement at all. One of the greatest mummy mysteries comes from Colombia, in the town of San Bernardo. 4. The Shroud of Turin The Shroud of Turin, which is on display at the Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist in Turin, Italy, is said to be the cloth in which Jesus was buried, but there’s a great deal of mystery around the artefact, and debate as to its true origins. It's about 15 feet long and 4 feet wide and bears the imprint of what looks like the body of a crucified man. The problem is that tests have been carried out that date the cloth to around the 13th or 14th centuries. 3. The Copper Scroll Treasure The Dead Sea Scrolls are a collection of writings that were found in caves at Qumran, and while they are all mysterious in their own ways, there's one that stands out- the copper scroll. The others were all found by Bedouins and written on parchment, but this was the final scroll to be discovered and was unearthed by an archaeologist and written on metal. 2. The Helix Staircase of Loretto Chapel In 1873, the bishop of the Santa Fe archdiocese commissioned a chapel called Our Lady of Light, which would be maintained by a religious order called the Sisters of Loretto. The chapel was designed by the famed French architect, Antoine Mouly, but he died before its completion. 1. Kenneth Arnold’s Flying Saucers When you hear about a UFO sighting, you might think of a flying saucer… but this term was only coined by the press in 1947 after a sighting by pilot Kenneth Arnold as he flew over Mount Rainier, Washington. He described seeing 9 glittering craft, each of which was pie plated, tailless, with a triangular rear section, and travelling at more than 1,200 miles per hour.

Check out the Most SURPRISING Ways Animals Help Us Treat Diseases! From natural animal medicine to comfort pets helping us with our immune system, this top 10 list of amazing ways animals save human lives by helping us fight disease will amaze you!

Pets & Autism Last year, there were many scientific and academic papers published finding evidence that having a pet greatly benefits people with mental health issues. But if you already have pets, you probably already knew that! Pets are great for everyone and they really provide a sense of stability and meaning in your life. 9. Zebrafish & Metabolic Disorders While we have come a long way in laboratory technology, for many things we still need animals to help us model human diseases so we can help treat them. The zebrafish is a cool little thing to have swimming round your aquarium but did you know it’s also at the forefront of helping humankind tackle various diseases? The reason for this lies in their biological make up, which surprisingly, is very similar to that of people. 8. Bees & Disease Something you might have heard about in recent years is the decline of the bee population. This is due to stuff like pesticides and climate change and the consequences for humanity are not good. As you know, bees along with lots of other insects and animals are pollinators, helping plants to reproduce. 35% of the world’s food is dependent on animal pollinators which are in a decline. 7. Dogs & Cancer Another great way in which dogs have been instrumental is helping people deal with cancer. As we saw with autism there’s much to be said for the emotional connection that can be developed between humans and animals, and how that can open someone up and get them talking about their treatment. 6. Vipers & Blood Pressure While we normally associate snakes with fear and stress (for ourselves!), believe it or not, snake venom is helping to save lives. Venomous toxins such as those from snakes, target vital body parts with extreme precision, helping scientists create new drugs. 5. Mice & Blindness Animal testing is an extremely divisive topic and no-one likes to think of little creatures locked in cages for the advancement of science. However this controversial practice has led to some major breakthroughs, and now genetically-altered mice are proving invaluable in the fight against hereditary eye diseases. 4. Purring Cats Cats are generally mysterious little creatures, though they’re not exactly shy in coming forward when they want something to eat, right? Cat owners around the world are familiar with their pet poking them in the face with their paw to wake them up, and of course purring loudly. 3. Hibernation & Brain Diseases You may recognize this little guy, the Syrian hamster because chances are you had one as a pet. Turns out that they have not only provided many of us with companionship as kids, but also have given us vital information about the brain. People suffering from dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease have fewer nerve cells and synapses than a healthy brain. Nerve connections get broken and don’t grow back. 2. Rats Sniff Out Disease One thing animals are great at is sniffing things out, so it was only a matter of time before that was used to pick up signs of disease. It’s long been known that dogs and other pets can be alerted if there’s something wrong with you, maybe a mole that doesn’t look right or something internal you’re unaware of. 1. Scorpions & Brain Tumours This might just be the most surprising. Scorpions have been amongst the most feared species on the planet with all kinds of creepy crawly scenes in movies and stories from real life to back that up. However turns out we’ve misunderstood this creature with the poisonous tail all along. A scorpion might be able to pack a punch, but it can also save your life.

The Lost City of Aztlan The Aztec people are famous for their capital city of Tenochtitlan, but they were not originally from there. According to their legends and stories, their ancestors came from the lost city of Aztlan which was a luxurious and wonderful place where everyone was immortal and happy. They consisted of seven tribes and each lived in their own cave and tended to their floating gardens. 9. The Mexica The term “Aztec” came into popular use by Spaniards after the initial discovery of the civilization. While some of these indigenous people did call themselves “Azteca,” inspired by the name of their ancestral home of Aztlan, they were mostly known as the Mexica. Around 1250, the Mexica arrived in the Valley of Mexico. It was a very long and difficult migration. 8. One of the World’s Biggest Cities Once they found Tenochtitlan, the certainly made the most of it. It was officially founded around 1325 and became the Aztec capital by the late 15th century. At its peak around 1519, the population was several times the size of London, with around 400,000 residents, making it one of the world’s largest cities at the time, as well as the largest residential concentration in Mesoamerican history. 7. Education When it came to schooling, the Aztecs, or Mexica, were far ahead of their time. Although the civilization placed great emphasis on the importance of parents teaching their children, they were one of the first societies to introduce compulsory education for children, regardless of class. This meant that nobles, commoners, and even slaves went to school. 6. Chocolate To the Aztecs, chocolate was considered a gift from Quetzalcoatl, the god of wisdom. Chocolate originated in Mesoamerica and was so valuable, cacao seeds were used as a form of currency for small purchases. (Cotton cloth was exchanged for larger purchases.) 5. Polygamy Aztec men were permitted to practice polygamy, but in doing so, they were bound by strict rules. A man only had a marriage ceremony with his first wife, who was considered the “main” wife. All other wives were recognized in the official records, but were considered secondary, or less important, than the first wife. 4. Disease and Their Downfall As you probably already know, Europeans brought swords, horses, warfare, and genocide to the New World. Times back then were tough, but the Europeans had something on their side that they didn’t even realize. Germs! While Hernan Cortes was often admired for his military prowess at the time, and alliances with other Native Americans who also wanted to destroy the Aztecs, one of the lesser-known ways the Europeans eradicated the Aztecs was through disease. 3. They Sold Their Children In Aztec society, it was common for impoverished people to sell their children into slavery, or for people to even sell themselves into slavery. These practices were often as a last resort after someone went bankrupt and saw no other way out. 2. Detailed Records The Aztecs had an advanced writing and recordkeeping system. Their alphabet was a form of picture writing that was based on their language, Nahuatl. Writing was a specialized skill that required training and was done mostly by scribes and priests, which could be men or women. 1. Sacrifice and Burial Customs Life went hand in hand in Aztec society. Aztecs of high stature, including merchants, were typically cremated. Their belief was that cremation would transform the soul of a warrior in a way that would send them straight to one of their religion’s 13 versions of heaven.

Steven Callahan Steven Callahan spent his entire life around boats and is a seasoned inventor and sailor. When he was 29 years old he built a 6.5 meter sloop called “Napoleon Solo” and went out to fulfill his dream of crossing the Atlantic during a sailing competition that would start in the Canary Islands and finish in the Caribbean. 7. The Robertson Family Not to be confused with the "Swiss Family Robinson" story about a different kind of shipwrecked family, or the cast of Duck Dynasty, the Robertson's were on a journey to see the world. Or as their patriarch Dougal Robertson said, to see the "University of Life". Since Mr. Robertson had retired as a merchant navy officer, he and his wife Lyn ran a dairy farm with their 4 children. So to get out of the rural UK, they departed to see the world and go on an adventure on January 27th, 1971. 6. Juliane Koepcke Now known as “The girl who fell from the sky”, Juliane Koepcke’s story of survival is pretty incredible. Juliane and her mother boarded LANSA Flight 508 on December 24th, 1971, after her prom to meet with her father for Christmas. The flight was only supposed to last about an hour, but around half way through, the plane flew into a thunderstorm and was struck by lightning. 5. Harrison Okene Harrison Okene truly defied the odds after surviving for 3 days trapped under a sunken ship. The 29-year-old was a chef on a tugboat and was in the bathroom when the boat began to capsize. On May 28th, 2013, rescue divers were sent down to search the sunken vessel miles off the coast of Nigeria. 4. Hiroo Onoda During World War II, a Japanese soldier by the name of Hiroo Onoda was given an order by his commanding officer before departing on a mission. That order? "No Surrender!" He must stay and fight at all costs. He survived in the jungles of the Philippines for 30 years before accepting that the war was over. 3. The Donner Party The Donner Party (also known as the Donner-Reed Party) was a group of pioneers, lead by brothers Jacob and George Donner and James Frasier Reed. This party of families travelling in covered wagons represented a new age of promise in American history and they were all hoping to build their fortune in the rich land of California. 2. Sir Ernest Shackleton Explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton and the crew of his Trans-Antarctic Expedition will go down in history as one of the greatest survival stories of all time. Sir Shackleton was already a famous explorer, having reached a record southern latitude on his Antarctic expedition of 1907-09. The next expedition would be to cross Antarctica from sea to sea through the pole. 1. Apollo 13 The United States came very close to losing the astronauts on the Apollo 13 mission. It was supposed to be the 3rd lunar landing attempt but the mission was aborted after an explosion occurred in an oxygen tank.

How to survive a zombie apocalypse: Go out to sea on a navy ship I’m sure the navy would try to evacuate as many people as possible. And let’s not forget all of the different types of auxiliary ships that are controlled by the navy. Also the navy has crane ships, construction ships, Mobile barracks, tankers, cargo and transport ship, hospital ships, dry docks, vehicles cargo ships, and all of the subs , aircraft carriers, destroyers, also they could also use dredging ships to build and artificial islands. So the navy can just go to a island or some shallow area and build a base with all of the ships I just mentioned so you have citizens and military assets safe from any zombies because they would surrounded by water and artificial islands were you build stuff like research facilities and air fields.

Satan 2. The black pope = father Superior 3. The jesuits 4. The Illuminati 5. Freemasonry
