These images are completely real and are a result of photographic skill, obscure angles, out of this world attention to a bizarre moment. They are simply pure and unadulterated shots of reality. If you loved the last bunch of incredible photographs that underwent zero editings, then brace yourself for more.
Moon Hangs Ten
This image is another case of being in the right place at the right time and capturing a stunning image because of it. This is far better than any couple pretending to hold the moon or any dude thinking he looks cool pinching the Eifal towe from the top.
Okay, it also helps if you’re in the freakin’ SWISS ALPS! Yes, that’s why this picture is so…picturesque…because that crane you’re looking at is in the Alps. The construction crane is positioned in just the right way when the moon hits that angle, so it looks like the moon is being suspended from the crane. Pretty awesome, right?
Tapirs Have Very Flexible Noses
If you all must know, the adorable animal shown in this photo is called a Tapir. It's not an Armadillo; it's not some kind of bear; it's a Tapir. It's a sizeable herbivorous mammal that has a similar shape to a pig with a short, prehensile nose trunk. They inhabit the jungle regions of Central America, South America, and Southeast Asia.
The closest relatives of these cute little critters include donkeys, horses, rhinoceroses, and zebras. Sadly, there are a few extinct relatives in the superfamily Tapiroidea, and the four species left existing have been evaluated and classified as Endangered or Vulnerable.
Yes, Goats Climb Trees
Goats love climbing, and yes, that includes trees. This phenomenon is a common sight in Morocco; they usually hang out on top of Argan trees on the road between Essaouira and Marrakesh. They love eating the fruits that these trees bear, and since goats are excellent climbers, they gather up and stay there all day long.
The goats cannot digest the argan seeds, so they excrete them whole. Workers then collect the seeds from the goat poop and then further process them to get the world-famous argan oil. This oil is precious as they are rich in antioxidants like vitamin E. People commonly use it in their skincare and hair products, as well as a great dressing on foods when the seeds are lightly roasted.
Not an Explosion That Signals the End of the World
This somewhat large group of patterns resemble a deep red rose in the middle, with vibrant green foliage in the surrounding. It is a false-color image taken from Cassini of a North Polar storm on Saturn. The eye (colored deep red rose), measured at a whopping 1,250 mil across, has a corresponding estimated cloud speed of 330 miles per hour.
When the Cassini spacecraft arrived within the Saturnian system in the year 2004, a northern winter was occurring, and the planet's north pole was under complete darkness. So, even surrounding us, up high in space, nature is throwing a ball.
Relax, It’s a Tree Hotel and Not a UFO
Anyone who comes across this photo has to stop and look again as; it looks as if E.T. really has gone home. The photo shown above is that of a seemingly futuristic Treehotel by the amazing Tham & Videgard Arkitekter. The rooms are mirrored glass boxes suspended around the trunk of a tree located in Hards, Northern Sweden. The forest and sky-reflecting rooms are accessible through a rope bridge.
The room's interior is made of plywood and can accommodate two people. Inside, you'll see a bathroom, double bed, roof terrace, and living room. It debuted to the public on July 2010 and has been receiving great reviews up until now.
Thin Crust Inception
Inceptions don't only happen in movies but in pizzas, too! If you all must know, Inception is a famous science fiction and action film released in 2010. Emma Thomas co-produced this movie together with Christopher Nolan, who wrote and directed everything. It's about a professional information thief that infiltrates the human subconscious mind. He got caught but then was offered an opportunity to erase his criminal history if he implanted an idea into a specific target's subconscious.
The cast includes Leonard DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, Ken Watanabe, Tom Hardy, Ellen Page, Cillian Murphy, Dileep Rao, Michael Caine, and Tom Berenger.
See you in your nightmares.
This could easily be a scene taken out of a horror Halloween. All that is missing are a couple of orange pumpkins and bring on October. Hope no one's scared of spiders here because this photo isn't from a horror movie set; these are in fact, trees covered in massive spider webs potentially created by thousands of spiders who’ve worked together…
This photo was taken on the coast of Aitoliko, Greece, where apparently everything is bigger, even their spider webs! During this time, it was such a discovery for arachnologists that a group of spiders could work together to create a community when they thought that these critters were loners.
Here’s What an Arm Wrestler Looks Like
Meet Matthias Schlitte, the shining example that arm wrestling is a real sport, and it requires skill, strength, willpower, and talent. It's not just for fun. He's a professional who has earned the title of "Hellboy" and has won a world championship! There aren't alot like him going around.
He was born with a genetic defect causing an individual to develop the right forearm bone to be 33 percent larger than the left. That's why his right arm is so strong, and it looks strikingly like the cartoon character Popeye. One thing is for sure: he has to stay fit to remain so strong.
When it comes to beautiful architecture and interiors, you can count on the Grand Hyatt group of hotels to give you that. That photo is a photograph from the Grand Hyatt Shanghai Hotel's Atrium. The building itself occupies 53 to 87 floors and is considered to be one of the highest hotels in the world. It ranks second only to its sister building: the Shanghai Park Hyatt.
On the 88th floor of the Shanghai Tower, there lies a skywalk that allows guests to see the seemingly infinite visuals that the hotel's atrium can give. The barrel-vaulted atrium begins at the 56th floor and continuously extends upwards to the 87th.
The Bull With the World’s Largest Horns.
We know he looks like the final boss in RPG games, but it's a Watusi bull named Lurch, and he has the world's most massive horns, according to the Guinness Book of Records, which cemented his name to international fame. Upon receiving his title, he has drawn visitors across the globe.
People from Vietnam, the UK, Kenya, Sweden, Japan, Germany, and Canada flew to see the majestic beauty of his horns. He has graced three different networks in Japan and has been posted on the pages of Ripley's Believe It or Not! He's like the Miss Universe titleholder of all the bulls!
Adobe Photoshop Who?
Before the dawn of photoshops and other image editors, photographers had to do things manually. Lighting effects and shadows are made by blocking light sources or filtering them. There was no liquid, and the only way to crop a photo was to chop it with a blade literally.
So, this photo isn't necessarily impossible to make. With the right knowledge, resourcefulness, and talent, it's achievable. So, really, what it all boils down to is that Photoshop, being the breakthrough that it is, can work as a secondary tool when it comes to effects. This is great timing and great imagination put together.
Oh no! It's Sheep Jam!
No one edited this photo; you can even ask the locals in New Zealand! Here's a phenomenon that happens all the time in this country. If you must know, sheep have this strong urge to follow others of their kind, so when one keeps walking for some grass eating, others will follow until it becomes a whole colony stepping whenever yummy grass will take them.
These creatures are known to have an excellent sense of smell because of existing scent glands on both their feet and eyes. They use these traits to mate and mark their territory. Another wonder of nature.
Here’s a Photo of a Giant Goldfish, You’re Welcome
Goldfish are known to be a house aquarium fish with their colorful scales and attractive appearance. Most people would think they have a short lifespan because they die so quickly in their homes, but that's only because they require more maintenance than you think and water with precise pH levels.
If taken care of properly, these fish can grow to be as big as the one in the photo that they found in one of the Southern rivers of France, so don't think of getting one as a pet animal for your child. In the wild, these fish can be very invasive and destroy a whole ecosystem.
This Is a Stained Glass Spider!
Well, it's real, and the scientific name for it is the Thwaitesia Argentiopunctata. It also has different names like the sequined spider, twin-peaked Thwaitesia, and the mirror spider. This arachnid can live on all the states of Australia. The species is known to have a body length of around 3 millimeters for males and 4 mm for females. Their abdomens are often most patterned attractively with colors red, yellow, cream, and green.
The Thwaitesia genus all feature reflective silvery patches on their abdomen. The scales look like they glued varying solid pieces of mirror on their backs. What's more amazing is that the spider has full control over how it will look, depending on how much they feel the need to protect themselves.
When Aquaman Calls His Royal Subjects
Well, not really! But this photo is real, and it makes things creepier. The square waves happened off of the Island de Rhe, located in France. The phenomenon happening in the photo shown above is called a cross-sea; it's a state of ocean waves that are wind-generated and made of nonparallel wave systems.
The dangerous thing about a cross sea is that it has a large amount of directional spreading. It occurs when the waves from one weather system continue, even if there's a shift in the wind. Now, the waves created by the new wind are at an angle against the old, which makes it more treacherous.
Yeah, everyone loves a rooftop garden, but a rooftop forest? That's amazing! The photo shown above depicts a rooftop garden that has grown to immense proportions, and honestly, it's what the world needs: more plants! There should be a law that every building should have a rooftop garden.
This particular building is located in Beijing, China, and was created by Professor Zhang Lin. He spent a total of six years gathering rubble and rocks so that he'd be able to achieve his dreams of having a penthouse that looks like a mountaintop! The residents from the lower floors hated him for it because now, the building his creation is causing the building to crack and, as a result, experience leaks. I guess too much of everything is bad, huh?
It’s Not an Alien Egg, We Promise!
We know it looks like the spawn of a race that will soon put an end to humanity, but it's just a geyser caught on camera midway into the eruption. If you must know, it is a spring that's known to make intermittent discharges of water where it's turbulently ejected out of the surface and mostly accompanied by steam.
The formation of geysers is mostly a rare phenomenon and happens if the environment meets specific hydrogeological conditions. All geyser field sites exist near active volcanoes, activated through the magma heat. The eruptive activity of a geyser may stop or change if there's mineral deposition under its original plumbing.
A Breathtaking Sunset
Here's something that's hard to fake: a great sunset. What's more beautiful about it is that it happens every day. We have the luxury of witnessing breathtaking sunrises and sunsets on the daily. There's a saying that goes, "The Sunset is a promise of a new beginning," and there's so much depth to it.
We all know that there's always a beginning in the end. So, every day, we are reminded that when something in our lives appears to be reaching its conclusion, we should not weep because it only means that a new horizon is just around the corner.
We Can’t Believe Those Are Not Stained Glass!
Often, they call the photo shown above as the "stained glass windows" of China. It looks like a regular rice field when you're on land, but it's a whole different story when you see it on a bird's-eye view. The look is almost as if it's from a canvas made by an impressionist. As if an artist plashed its colors spontaneously on a white sheet, never expecting it to become this phenomenal piece.
The Yuanyang Terraces, the specific place in China where you can find artistic-looking rice terraces, receive incomparable glory from cultivating rice. At a latitude of 200 to 2000 m above sea level, the rice fields cover more than 20,000 km2.
How to Spot a Great Photographer
The ability to play with the elements available to you when taking a photo is what makes a photographer great. It's not easy to achieve a particular effect if you don't know how to operate the ISO, flash, exposure, and other things. Photographers today can easily edit any photo with ease through Photoshop and make it look like it's real, and that's okay.
But if you want to learn how to identify a great photographer from someone who's just knowledgeable about the field, then you must look at their raw photos. A great example would be the photo shown above.
No One Got Murdered Here
Believe it or not, this photo might seem to be a creepy one, but it's more icky than scary. The reason for the blood scattered in the room is from a horse who had a nose bleeding. It sneezed, and the blood spread all over the place. Seriously, we are not kidding you.
What causes a nosebleed in horses, you ask? It's usually a foreign object getting trapped or damaging their nasal area by coughing. It can also happen when there's a bleeding polyp or soft growth in the nostrils area or when tumors in the respiratory tract begin to harden and grow.
Queen Bee Realness!
Imagine working with bees every day; it removes all your fears of these hardworking little critters. That's why this man, right here, decided to cover himself up with bees. We might not know the reason why he wanted to do it, but one thing's for sure: the bees love him!
Did you know that in order for bees to produce one pound of honey, they have to collect nectar from about two million flowers? That means that a single bee has to fly about three times across the globe to make that happen. They are also very complex and social creatures; they communicate with each other by dancing. That's so cute!
It Isn’t a Prank; It’s for Research Purposes
While researching prehistoric life, scientists devised a way to re-enact and show the way dinosaurs, more specifically T-rexes, reproduce. Then, they decided to exhibit it at the Jurassic Museum of Asturias. The place is unique in many ways, and the photo shown above is one of the reasons why.
The museum shows the mating practice of the Tyrannosaurus Rex in three halls. It is something that no major dinosaur museum has ever shown, making it ahead of the pact. It's important to explain how these creatures multiplied during their time, as you never know. Maybe two long-lost dinosaurs will be found, and they will have to learn how to reproduce.
Coincidence or Sign?
In this photo, you'll see the shape of a man appearing in the mountainsides of Alesund. A small town and municipality of the More Og Romsdal County of Norway. This port town is the center of the Alesund Region and the traditional district of Sunnmore. Known to be a place where Art Nouveau architecture is prominent, seeing a man-like silhouette drawn in the snow will make you think that some artist living around the area made it, but it is just a mere coincidence.
Whether the snow and winds of Alesund are trying to tell us something, or it was just a series of moments that led to one another forming an image by accident, it is still a picturesque moment.
We’re Calling This the Obsessive-Compulsive Trees!
How in the hell was it possible to make such precise cuts? Well, it was as easy as buying a machine and letting it all do the dirty work! The reason why this is such a well-maintained garden is that it's a royal one. Most especially, the former imperial summer residence called the Schonbrunn palace is located in Vienna, Austria. Obviously, by someone who loves combining symmetry and nature.
Call it posh, call it royalty, but on this page, we will call it obsessive-compulsive realness, and that's okay! Sometimes, being a little OC can help you bring out great results just like the one in this photo.
The Good o' American Salut
Before the heartless reign of the German dictator, during WWII, Americans taught their children to salute the flag the way they do it in the photo shown above. Today, they are accustomed to putting their hands over their hearts whenever they need to give respect to the American flag.
A lot has happened during those times that changed people to give respect to the national anthem, the pledge of allegiance, and whenever in front of the American flag. It was a monumental moment that changed the course of history. It fascinates us how one dark chapter in history has managed to change a daily routine that all Americans adopted at the time.
What in the Shark Option?!
Sharks are one of the fiercest predators in the world. It's sharp fangs and substantial power is what makes them such lethal animals. It can almost devour any fish, human, and even its kind. Yes, it does have hard skin, but cannibalism isn't something new for the species. Let's put it this way: you wouldn't want to come across one of these while enjoying time in the waters of the ocean.
Sharks are known to eat each other right from the womb, so seeing this smaller shark get eaten by a bigger one, well, that's natural, folks! Play the song Baby Shark while staring at this photo; it gets disturbing.
Imagine This Being Your Hobby:
Would you be able to make this as your hobby? Or something that's part of your daily lifestyle? Well, the guy shown in the photo above is a Ukrainian roofer, and he risks his life on the regular by merely hanging and climbing from different towers and buildings.
He has a photographer who follows him around who, we firmly believe, is also putting his life in danger. There have been reports of people who shared the same hobby falling from a building after just one single mistake. It's a very dangerous hobby, but they say that the adrenaline that it gives you is better than any kind of "high" that's available in the market today.
Scarier Than Ghosts
The real horror that people should be scared to death about is pollution, most especially in the air. Here's a photo of the city of Almaty in Kazakhstan, covered in massive air pollution. Imagine living in a world where the air that you breathe is as dirty as contaminated water.
Almaty is the biggest city in the country of Kazakhstan, with a booming population of 1.8 million people. They make up about 8% of the country's total population. One of the reasons why it's polluted is due to the fact that it's the major cultural and commercial center of the whole country.
No Edits, Just Pure Nature!
The photo shown above is that of an aurora that appears on the planet Saturn. The spectacular light formation that you are seeing is caused by an energetic solar wind that circulates the earth just the way it does on the planet Earth. But unlike Earth, Saturn's auroras are seen when there's ultraviolet light. Auroras on Saturn are powered and shaped by the flow of charged particles coming from the sun as well as the planet's magnetic field.
The study of Saturn's auroras began in the year 1979 when the 11 spacecraft, which was a pioneer at that time, observed a far-ultraviolet brightening on the poles of Saturn.
The Magic Tap
Here's a neat structural trick: the Magic Tap! Located in Spain's Aqualand, people can't help but feel baffled or in awe by the genius idea that made this possible. The secret to this is magic, yeah... Not! A pole placed where the water is running is what holds it up. No one will be able to see it when the water is on.
The Magic Tap has been listed in many publications to be among the most amazing fountains scattered across the globe, and we couldn't agree more! We can almost hear it calling the by-passes to jump in and enjoy the refreshing water as long as they remember to turn the tap off when they are done.
When Film Cameras Glitch
Everyone loves the idea of a floating ship, but sadly, the one seen in the photo above isn't what you think it is. The boat looks like it's traveling midair, but the camera's white balance is just off. The blue body of water that you see here is the sand.
Some call it a "Fata Morgana," which is a form of mirage seen on narrow bands right above the horizon. It's named after the famous Arthurian sorceress Morgan le Fay. These mirages, as they believe, usually show themselves in the Straits of Messina, where their magic creates fairy castles in the air or false land so that they can lure sailors to their demise.
Human Teeth on a Fish? That’s Just Weird
The world is home to millions of different species, so it's not much of a surprise if we still come across new species now and then. But to see a fish that has human teeth? WEIRD. And it's not a result of some genetic mutation. It seems that we humans and the living animals on our planet are much more like than we think.
It's just a fish called the 'red-bellied pacu.' It's an aquarium fish famous among hobbyists. It's an ornamental fish that grows to significant sizes when taken care of properly. People import these fish from South America across the world.
No, this is not a case of copy-paste or when your Windows processor hangs; these men are just perfectly in line. This photo might seem amusing to many, but it requires a lot of training, focus, and bonding to make it possible. Soldiers are known to undergo rigorous training and would face great punishment if they don't perform properly.
From getting their first training and education, military men and women are governed by a set of strict rules to ensure that they develop a sense of discipline and organization. It takes years to perfect a march like this, and very few armies around the world manage to execute it to perfection. It's all down to discipline.
The Real Barbie Girl
Meet Valeria Valeryevna Lukyanova, and she's the real-life Barbie girl! She is a Ukranian entertainer and a model who rose to internet fame because of her cunning resemblance with the famous Barbie doll. She uses a specific style of makeup and contact lenses to enhance the full-on Barbie fantasy. She matches the colors of her contact lenses to her naturally blue/gray/green eyes.
In an interview, the model stated that she had to undergo breast augmentation to have the same physique as the toy. She also claims that it's the only part of her body that she had any plastic surgeon touch.
Giant Chair and Table. Real or Not?
Definitely, real! The location of this 30-foot giant table and chair is just across Hampstead Heath, England. From a distance, it looked like the common Ikea flatpack table and chair; the only thing that's different is that it's the size of the average house. They called the artwork "The Write," which was made by the Italian sculptor Giancarlo Neri.
Artist Neri describes the artwork as a "monument to the loneliness of writing," but he also hopes that spectators will make of it according to their will. He chose Hampstead Heath to be the place of this artwork because of the literary significance it had accumulated throughout its history.
This Photo Is Not a Funny Meme
The dog in this photo might look like it came from a weird meme from Facebook, but it's not. It has a condition called the "Baboon Dog Syndrome" or "Short-spine syndrome," a drastic shortening of the spinal/vertebral column. The remaining spine becomes compressed, giving the dog a sort of hunched-back look.
Dogs with this condition seem to retain their spine in its cartilage form. In some cases, some vertebrae become stuck together, making their bodies less flexible compared to their normal counterparts. They cannot turn their heads because their necks appear to be missing, so they have to turn their whole body around to see what piques their interest.
A Fire Devil. Don’t Be Afraid, Be Terrified
This is a fire whirl, also known as a fire devil. It's a rare and dangerous phenomenon that forms when strong winds and potent fire combine. People call this, erroneously, a fire tornado, but in fact, it's a whirlwind infused with fire. You wouldn't wish this on your worst enemy.
It starts as a small whirl of wind that is usually made visible by the smoke of its friction, and when the right amount of heat and turbulent conditions, it forms a tornado-like vortex that sucks varying debris along with combustible gasses. It's a storm on fire, a tornado flame.
No. It's an Opal with unique patterns inside. As you know, gems and crystals like this are often revered and collected for their beauty and monetary value. The photo shown above isn't just your run-off-the-mill stone, but it's called an Opal crystal.
Opals feature a broad spectrum of colors, but this particular kind has a different and unbelievable visual effect. It seems like you're seeing an underwater water view with light shining above it, almost calling you to swim up and reach the surface. It looks so surreal that it looks like a pocket-sized aquarium. It almost seems as if it's a memory suspended in Opal.
Someone needed to show off their painting skills and decided to camouflage a car based on a particular camera angle and its background; It's brilliant and amusing all at the same time. The artist's name is Sara Watson, and she is the woman in this photo. She's an art student at the University of Central Lancashire.
This is what we call being creative and thinking out of the box. There are no limits to what a young and talented mind can come up with. The optical illusion art is part of her image and drawing-making course. It is evident that she has taken inspiration from the famous pavement artist Julian Beever.
Relax, It’s Not a Pokemon
No. It's not a 'butterfly,' but an Atlas moth, and it's the biggest of its kind. This creature's scientific name is Attacus Atlas, and it's categorized as a gigantic saturniid moth that's endemic to Asian forests. It's also one of the largest lepidopterans with a wingspan that measures 25-30 cm and a wing surface area of about 400 cm2.
As you can see, its body is disproportionately small compared to its wings and totally out of proportion. The upper wing parts are colored reddish brown with some patterns of white, black, purple, and pink lines with scale-less, triangular windows bordered in shades of black.
There’s a Rainbow Always After the Rain
Well, that's true in this photo. Here's a rare phenomenon where a rainbow appears simultaneously with a scary tornado; you don't get to see these things every day. The photograph shown above was taken on a Thursday afternoon when two rare phenomena appeared simultaneously. Luckily enough, photographers are quick to act and were able to immortalize this moment and inform the world on social media.
On a different note, more than 50 homes were damaged, including trees, so it's not something that people should look forward to seeing anytime soon. It's a one-time thing, and it should stay that way.
The Man Who Made Himself a Mirror Costume
Here's a photo of a guy who covered himself in mirrors and is slowly getting famous because of his street performances. He's one of the most intriguing performers out there. His personality becomes instantly mysterious as he masks his entire body in hundreds of mirror pieces. When he wears the mirror suit, it becomes such a stunning view as his clothes reflect the light of the world right back to the eyes of the viewers.
Mirror man is starting to be a celebrity as he visits events in order for people to photograph him. He lives around Los Angeles, USA, so if you happen to be in the area, keep your eyes peeled for this excellent and brilliant performer!
Not Trying to Scare You, But...
NASA took the eerie photo shown above on a mission to the planet Mars. In one of the many images taken by the Viking 1 in 1976 of the Cydonian mesa, appeared to have a face of a human. When it was acquired, the chief scientist of Viking, Mr. Gerry Soffen, dismissed it as a mere trick of shadows and light.
While his explanations were considered reasonable, a second image surfaced in which it showed a humanoid face again at a different sun-angle and 35 Viking orbits later. It was a discovery made by Gregory Molenaar and Vincent DiPietro, two computer engineers working at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center.
Houses in Mexico City
It's not even virtual reality; it's the real thing! What makes it seem so fake is the fact that hundreds of houses look the same, which only makes it appear that someone copied and pasted the houses near each other while playing Sims.
Believe it or not, it's part of a two-part plan of building 2.5 million houses in the first phase, followed by another 2.5 million in the second place. It's a significant project in Mexico that aims to create employment opportunities, providing business to industries that are in the housing sector, slum area reduction, better living for poor people, and the list goes on.
It’s a Human Talent, Not Photoshop Skills
What's the initial thing you do when you see someone putting a snake through his nose? You'd probably think why he's doing that, right? Honestly, we think it's talent. Most people can barely hold a snake, much less put it across their nasal cavities; it requires effort and training… that's for sure.
India is a very diverse country as it's enormous that they experience different weathers in different parts. The country is said to house over 270 species of snakes, 60 of which are highly poisonous. They have the big four dangerous snakes, and those the Indian Cobra, Russell's viper, saw-scaled viper as well as the Krait.
When the Wooden Pole Rotted Away
It's no surprise that wood, under specific instances, can rot away. It may be an insect infestation, fire, or random accident. Everyone knows that wood is one of the most versatile materials when it comes to building structures. You can mold it as you please, and it has excellent insulator properties. The only weakness that it has is that it is combustible and is prone to rotting.
The four factors that cause wood rot are the quality of the wood itself, the level of warmth, moisture, and oxygen. The moment these four elements meet, the rotting begins, and once it hits, there is no going back.
These Are Real Snow Sculptures!
These things happen in China during a celebration they call "The Harbin International Ice and Snow Sculpture Festival." The annual winter festivities occur in Harbin, Heilongjiang, China, and usually differ in theme every time. It is considered to be the largest ice and snow festival in the world. The ice and snow sculptures are made to perfection, and due to the extremely cold weather that hits the contry, it stays like this for days.
Different nationalities compete against each other, making it an international competition. In 2017, it had 18 million visitors, which helped the festival generate $4.4 billion in revenue. It also includes the world's most prominent ice sculptures.
Say Hi to the Color Split Kitty, Everyone!
Everyone, we'd like you to meet Venus, the 'two-faced' cat, literally! As shown in the photos above, she's completely ginger on the left and black on the right. And if that's not awesome enough, her two eyes are different! Her eyes on the ginger side are blue, and green on the black side.
Venus lives in Florida and is taken care of by her two amazing owners Chris and Christina. Her life wasn't all peachy as she was a feral stray kitty roaming the streets of the North Carolina dairy farm. She was found by Christina when someone posted her photos online. She immediately fell in love with her! Now, she lives life happily with her two loving mommy and daddy.
In a Black and White World
We all know what you're thinking, "Edited, next!" Sorry to break to you, but it's not. You can even have it checked with your go-to Photoshop expert. The reason behind this seemingly retouched photo is that everything got covered in ash except for the flower.
It isn't the first time everything got covered in ash, though; one of the earliest records of this phenomenon dates back to the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. The lava and ash covered the whole city and preserved it in such a mint condition that reports show that there were no later modifications and accretions done to this once great city.
A Waistline No Diet Can Achieve
Move over to Instagram content models. Cathie Jung is here, and she's slaying with her 15-inch waist. It's true; this isn't a digitally altered photo. Jung had altered her body by wearing corsets for as long as she can remember. This was not taken in the early 1900s; this is from recent days, believe it or not.
Maybe you didn't know this, but corsets have played a key role in women's fashion for many centuries, especially in Europe. It has survived the times by evolving along with the ever-changing fashion trends. Just like Cathie Jung, many women - including men, have used them to alter the appearance of their bodies.
2012 London Summer Olympics’ Rainbow Laser
Well, it's the Olympics! Would you still doubt its authenticity? With an event as significant as this one, you can expect anything to happen. They have the budget, the connection, and the star power to make everything happen, including a simulated rainbow that's better than the natural ones. The colors are bright; there is no fading whatsoever; this is, ladies and gentlemen, the perfect rainbow.
They held the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, and the construction they did for the games involved significant redevelopment as the organizers wanted to emphasize sustainability. They knew that the Olympics was a great platform to spread the word about the subject.
No, It’s Not a Magic Portal!
Don't freak out; it looks like some dark sorcery created this, but it's perfectly harmless. This vortex-looking hole is man-made and is just an infrastructural feature of several dams scattered around the world. It also happens to look supernatural in photos when taken under the right lighting. There is no need to set your camera to a specific filter or mode. This photo was taken just by useing a human eye and a very good lens.
Located in Derbyshire, England, The Ladybower Reservoir provides hydroelectricity and drinking water to its region. Every year, numerous tourists and photographers worldwide fly to this place to take a photo of this phenomenon.
Have You Ever Heard of a ‘Zony’?
What happens when you put a pony mare in a barn together with a zebra? You get a zony, and we need one! It turns out you can breed zebras with any cousin species. That didn't come out right, but you get the point! This species can be found only in specific zoos across the globe.
For example, it's called a Zorse if you breed a horse mare and a zebra stallion. These hybrids are always sterile, so they can't reproduce and are categorized under one general name: Zebroids. People prefer to ride these hybrids more than zebras since their body shape is more conducive for riding.
Photos You Can Feel!
Ouch! We know how rewarding it is to train like a boxer and win a boxing competition, but what's happening in between that stops most people from pursuing this sport? Imagine punching and getting punched for a living... I barely just survive papercuts. But did you know that boxing dates back to the Middle East in the 3rd and 2nd Millennia BC?
It then, later on, evolved into an organized sport with rules and regulations developed by the Greeks. It was part of the early Olympics, and it has grown into the game that it is today. This is worse than a ballerina's toes after removing the ballet point shoes.
One in a Million Moment
Doing activities outside of houses, buildings, or cities, to be exact, can be such a rejuvenating experience not just for your mind but also for your soul. If you don't believe in the spiritual stuff, well, there's a scientific explanation for that, and it’s because being in sync with nature relaxes our bodies and can help remove accumulated stress.
The photo shown above is another perfectly timed photo where the sunlight hits the reddish brown mountain, giving it a majestic highlight from its surroundings. By the looks of how the sky is lighting up and the shade of the rays, they took the photo taken during the golden hour, which serves the perfect lighting.
Don't worry; it's not venomous because it's not a snake. It's a giant Gippsland Earthworm. These giant creatures grow from 3.3 feet long and 2 cm in diameter. They can even appear longer than that when they expand and contract their bodies to make them appear larger. An average Gippsland Earthworm weighs about 200 grams and usually dons a dark purple head and a bluish-gray body.
They might seem a little intimidating, but they are harmless. Now, what gets us most is not the features of this creature but how on earth this guy manages to touch the gross thing. For all the money in the world, you would never find us getting so close.
Yep, Those Are Real Balconies!
Here's a photo of the skyscraper located on Silom Road, Bang Rak business district, Bangkok, Thailand. The largest building in Southeast Asia was built in the year 2001, and ever since then, it has been considered the most significant building to ever grace the lands of Southeast Asia, with a floor area of 3.2m sq.
The Bangkok State Tower has 68 floors and is said to be 810 feet tall, giving it the title of the third tallest building in Thailand in 2011 and ranking 139th in the whole world. Rangsan Torsuwan is the Thai Architect behind this skyscraper.
Ancient Spirits in the Trees
These are not spirits, but there’s no Photoshop here, either, and no filters were used when taking the photo. It was not computer-edited either. It's an artwork made by Clement Briend, a French artist. As evident in the photo, he uses 3D light projectors on motionless objects to create images for the public to see. We're sure he freaked some people out the first time they saw faces on their neighborhood trees.
We all have different ways of doing art; it's a reflection of who we are. From our emotions, memories, and experiences, we produce something that's a collective product of our individuality, and sometimes the results are mind-blowing.
The Mammatus or the mammatocumulus is a pattern of cellular pouches that hangs underneath the center of a cloud. It got its name because of its mammary gland-ish shape. These clouds form this way as they usually form under cumulonimbus rainclouds, but there have been reports that they are hung on other types of parent clouds.
It's sometimes hard to believe, but more often than not, these seemingly large sky pouches are associated with severe thunderstorms and, sometimes, tornado storms in the US. Aviators are advised to avoid these types of clouds as they are an indication they'll surely experience turbulence.
Egyptian Eye View
They took this photo on top of the famous Giza Pyramids. Remember this view because you'll most probably not be seeing this view in person. Giza's great pyramids are the most massive and ancient of the three existing pyramids in El Giza, Egypt. For many years, it has remained mostly intact.
For those of you who don't know yet, researchers claim that ancient men created the Pyramids to serve as tombs for royalty. It remains the tallest human-made structure in the world for more than 3,800 years. Visiting this remarkable place shifts you back to almost biblical days.
On Another Episode of Perfectly Timed Photos!!
The photo shown above gives you a two-headed rhino realness at first glance. While it's never impossible nowadays for science to produce different species, this time, it’s not real but rather another case of a perfectly timed photo. It's good as, in some way, it gives rhinos a spot in the limelight in which they remind people that they still exist, and unfortunately, they are still being hunted down.
The reality behind these prehistoric-looking animals is that they have such precious Ivory growing from them that poachers will do anything to get one. This is why the species have experienced a steady decline.
Noah’s Ark Has Been Found in Korea!
You are walking down the coastline, enjoying the scenery, and then you come across this. No, not really. As you can see, that's not a real ship; it's a hotel resort shaped like one for marketing and aesthetics purposes. It's the country's great idea of spiking tourism to their country. It's called the Sun Cruise Resort & Yacht, located in Jeongdongjin on South Korea's east coast.
They modeled the hotel before the reputed Royal Caribbean International Sovereign Class. The hotel is 165 meters long and 148 meters tall, overlooking the beach resort. They say that it is the very first hotel shaped like a cruise ship in the world.
That’s Not Snow, It’s Salt!
Contemporary art has redefined what we consider as craft, and anything that expresses someone's way, thoughts, or beliefs is a creation. Motoi Yamamoto is a pioneering Japanese contemporary artist who's famous for his ability to work with salt. His artworks are often in the form of temporary, large-scale, and intricate installations. He was able to connect to this art form at the time when he was mourning the death of his sister.
He has many fans. His most popular projects include shattered planets, entire oceans, violent typhoons, fractured staircases, mountain ranges, and vast plains of coils. All of those were made possible by using his medium of choice: Salt.
Your Crush: “I Love Flexible Personalities” You:
Here's a photo of Zhou Xiaojing, a professional Chinese rhythmic gymnast, appearing to be headless as she bends her head backward while performing her 'clubs.' This was her routine in the Asian Games for the women's rhythmic gymnastics individual all-around finals held in Bangkok, Thailand.
She has been consistent in her performances across the world, including in the Olympic games, but she never got any medals. Nevertheless, this photo of her has been famous on the internet for a very long time. She might not be an Olympic medalist, but she's renowned as the super flexible girl meme, and that's just beautiful.
Someone Probably Beat You to It!
Will you look at that? It's the end of the rainbow, but where's the pot of gold? For those of you who don't know, it comes from the legend of the Leprechaun from Irish Folklore. It's these little-bearded fairy men who allegedly left a pot of gold at the end of rainbows. Leprechauns will also grant three wishes to anyone who is able to capture them.
In case you were wondering, this photo was taken with no filters, no eye tricks, and no iPhone or Android devices. This is pure art, taken by a human eye using just a camera and the gift of nature.
The First Photo of a Living Fetus
This photo ended up in Time magazine. Lennart Nilsson took it along with other jaw-dropping portraits across many pages inside the magazine. It triggered the debate concerning "when life begins and who will ultimately wield the control of a woman's body” in the premise of before and after birth.
Adding to Lennart's brilliant magazine cover, he took this photo when it was seemingly impossible to make a portrait inside the human body and much more of a fetus inside a woman. It was a breakthrough that sparked heated debates among political and religious figures, and a personal milestone that cemented his name in the industry.
Here’s a Satellite Photo of the Namib Desert
Africa is a fascinating continent with so much to offer. It has spectacular views, and nature goes wild wherever you look. Behold Southern Africa's coastal desert Namib; its name is derived from the Khoekhoe language and means a "vast place." Namib, not to be confused with Namibia, stretches for more than 2,000 kilometers across the Atlantic coasts of Namibia, Angola, and South Africa.
This desert is almost entirely uninhabited by humans except for a few indigenous groups and small settlements, including the Obatjimba and the Ovahimba Herero located in the north, as well as the Topnaar Nama situated in the central region.
Believe It or Not, That’s Paint
They took the photo shown above at "Sergels Torg" or "Sergel's Square," the most central public square of Stockholm, Sweden. They named it after the 18th-century sculptor named Johan Tobias Sergel. The sculptor had built a workshop located in the northern part of the square. As you can see, this is much more than just a square.
Somewhere in the square is an artwork that bends reality by combining all the elements of a grand optical illusion. If you notice in the photograph, there's a big, almost triangular hole on the floor; they used paint and a few shading techniques, so you don't need to worry about that.
The Mother of All Perfectly Timed Photos
Everyone knows and loves seemingly infinite amounts of perfectly timed photos scattered across the internet, but this might just arguably be number one on that list. Here's a genuine and unedited picture of a Yosemite waterfall taken at the perfect and precise moment when the sun reflected from the splashing waters.
They call it the waterfall rainbow, and it isn't the only photo of its kind that's going across the internet. It's a photography discovery commonly seen among the waterfalls of Yosemite. This is, without a doubt, nature at its prime and another proof that you don't need much, and these are the true gifts of life.
Perfectly Timed Photos, the Sequel!
It's not what you think! That kid is not Jesus, and he cannot walk on water. It's just another one of those perfectly timed photos that are going around the internet; only this one could be the mother of all perfectly timed photos. Can you see how everything about him is relaxed, making it seem like he's just casually doing something that he does daily?
The kid even looks like he's tipping his toes on the water to check the temperature. To whoever took this photo, call me because I need pictures like that also! Jesus was not the only one to wall the water!
The world has so many different people with different beliefs and personalities that one would never have an identical way of living because in some ways. There is no right or wrong and if you feel comfortable doing something, who are we to judge? Being different is not a bad thing; it's what makes the world such an interesting place.
We must learn to admit that we vary when it comes to interests, but my question right now is, why would someone put watermelons on their heads while watching a baseball game? Can someone please tell me!? What's wrong with good old fashion hats?
We Hope This Isn't Real, But it is!
The thought of walking above a gigantic sinkhole isn't something that you'd want to think about as you go through your daily hustle, but unfortunately, these things exist. The one shown in the photo above happened in Guatemala City, brought by the torrential of Agatha. It was the first tropical storm brought by 2010's hurricane season. It blew over Southern Mexico and Central America and triggered fatal floods and landslides.
A sinkhole, sometimes called by people as a swallow hole, happens when the surface layer collapses due to outside interferences. These interferences mostly occur through chemical dissolutions or suffosion processes of carbonate rocks.
And the Best Realistic Cosplay Award Goes To:
Cosplaying is probably one of the hobbies that requires creativity, craftiness, time, and money. While it consumes a lot of resources, it can be a fulfilling activity as you get to gain new friends, and sometimes, if you work hard enough, you'll get noticed and become famous. How famous? Ask any screen-connected kid these days, and they will let you know.
Just like the guy who came to a cosplaying event in the photo shown above, a pixelated video game character! They call it the 8-bit Samus character from Metroid. We feel this is just the beginning of the changes games and entertainment are going to, and we are not sure we like it.
Grace Under Pressure
Despite the heavy rains, this pool still managed to look "Instagram" ready. If you think that this is an impossible sight, well, that's where you're wrong. Let's break it down, shall we? The heavy, continuous rain caused the flood that you see here. The water had reached quite a height, but it didn't get inside the edges of the pool.
There weren't any strong winds, that's why the pool didn't get any debris that's big enough to be seen at a distance from where they took this photo. The water remained clear due to the chlorine. What a series of fortunate events!
Talk About On Cue!
Every time we look at this photo, we are still amazed and can't get enough. Unless you can do a decent pirouette, you apparently can't sit or jump with these synchronized ballerinas. Ballet is a classical dance that originated in the 15th century during the Italian Renaissance. It has, later on, evolved into a concert dance by the French and Russians and, today still fascinates audiences around the world with remarkable shows.
This highly technical form of dance has become widespread since then, and it developed a French-based vocabulary. Today, there are ballet schools all over the globe and astonishing ballerinas to admire.
THIS IS DUBAI
In the past years, Dubai has become a leading tourist destination, and you'll be surprised how much it has to offer. It has leaped a lot of boundaries when it comes to growth. Today, this is what its’ skyscraper looks like. Almost 22 buildings can reach the clouds. These buildings are reportedly known to exceed 75 stories. No one can ever deny that this country is an excellent example of progress in almost all aspects.
In the UAE, Dubai has grown to be its largest and most populous city. It's the business hub and global city, as well as a significant global transport hub for cargo and passengers. One it's most vital resources? You guessed it: Oil.
When it comes to art, there are no rules, and if an artist wants to use childhood symbols, let it be. Well, an artist decided to create a giant rubber ducky and set it free in a river. Whoever that artist is, please tell him that he's just brilliant! My childhood would have been so much more fun if he had created this earlier.
Kidding aside, this rubber ducky floated around the Victoria Harbor of Hong Kong to signal the Rubber Duck Tour Exhibition 2013. A Dutch artist named Florentijn Hofman created it. His art revolved around contemporary inflatable art that aims to amplify the healing and relaxing power of bath buddies.
The Great Yao Ming!
Well, what can we say? He's not only well ENDOWED with height, but he also is a basketball player. Being so tall, what else do you expect him to be? Yao Ming was a Chinese basketball player who played for the CBA under the Shanghai Sharks team and the NBA under the Houston Rockets.
Today, the 7'6'' ex-player is a Chinese basketball executive. His height made him the tallest active player in the NBA during his final season. He broke a lot of records as he was the only player outside the US who led the NBA in All-Star votes. It's definitely a name to remember and definitely a photo to preserve.
The Rainbow And The Golden Road
We’re not sure if there is a pot of gold at the end of that rainbow, but we’re certain that there’s a golden line leading straight to it! The lighting in this image is really beautiful, and the photographer captured a lovely golden light bouncing off of the road.
The way the rainbow acts as a divide between the light side of the sky and the dark side of the sky is truly poetic. If you look closely, you will see that this photo actually shows a gorgeous double rainbow! Hats off to whoever took this magical image! Maybe Roger Walters should consider this for his next album cover.
Light As A Feather, Stiff As A Board
There is more to this than just great sports. Who remembers playing this as a game with friends as a child? We sure do! Unfortunately, it never actually worked like we were all told that it would. But this guy seems to be able to “go there” all by himself!
Too bad for him, though; none of the judges seem to be paying any attention. He’s literally flying, and they’re all just like, “Meh, we’ve seen these ten times today.” We hear that he still scored pretty well, though. Good for him! Again, perfect timing, astonishing gymnastic, and oblivious judges who missewd the entire show.
Benjamin Button" Syndrome?
So, take a quick glimpse at this snapshot and let us know what you see. We’ll wait. Right?! At first glance, it looks like this toddler has the face of an old man, and it’s really creeping us out! Thank God it’s just an optical illusion, and all we’re seeing is the back of the baby’s head in a hat and the man’s face that’s holding him turned slightly sideways.
Phew! Some optical illusions really do a number on the mind, huh? And you, what's the best part of this photo? Is that it's organic and not staged like many other so-called 'clever' photographs?
The Best Selfie Ever
We’re not entirely sure if this cat has superpowers or if he’s one of the few cats with opposable thumbs who have successfully learned how to operate a camera, but we don’t care! This is one of the best photos in existence, period.
It isn’t just the fact that it looks like this cat snapped this shot that makes it so awesome, but that all of the animals are facing the camera, too! They must have been pretty mesmerized by the drone that took this picture. Next, we will be seeing cat selfie online course posters scattered all over the place.
I’ve Got The Power
Thor might have something to say about which God controls the Lightning over Rio de Janeiro, but Christ looks like he beholds the power…or at least, his statue does. On its own, this 100-foot-tall statue could probably scare some people into submission. But add this intense storm and the lighting of this shot, and you get…well, you get this!
How cool is it that the lightning looks like it is touching the hand of the statue? What a powerful image! We can't help but wonder what happened to the world after the lightning stroke, as we find it hard to believe everything stayed the same.
America’s Next Top Mammon
Uhhhh…someone please alert this girl that there’s a demon incarnating next to her! It’s just what? Oh, our bad; apparently, that’s not a demon from the pits of hell, just some hellishly terrible eyeshadow. Okay, so the eye shadow explains the eye situation, but what, uh…what’s going on with that creepy smile? We think it’s possible she may, in fact, be possessed AND dawning some horrible eye color.
On the other hand, it comforts us to think that this was deliberately done, and she was trying to pull a scary face. Yes, that is exactly what happened. Let's not tell her it didnt quite workout as she intended it to.
The Crop Was Good This Year
If you're an outdoor person – climber, hiker, even a long-distance runner or something like that – you're probably familiar with the Clif bar. These power-packed snacks have kept people fueled for quite some time, but where is the exciting wrapper image from?
Right here, as it turns out – Colorado, maybe, we think. So, no, you won't be able to find the place strewn with fresh Clif bars, but you can at least try and recreate what this person (who might be the original photographer) did. We wonder if this guy saw the potential and planned it all out, or was he enjoying an ice cream, and then the wonder was revealed infront of his eyes.
Yo Ho, Me Hearties
The pirates are back. A foggy day is one for intense thoughts, poetry, warm coffee, and pirates. Still? Yes, still, according to this picture. It almost looks like that galley is swooping in on a cloud to make off with the treasure, rum, wenches, etc. Let this inspire you for your next painting or short story.
And now, we hate to be a bunch of buzz kills, but this is the top of a tower in San Francisco, California. It's the Sutro Tower, a radio mast. Reality is disappointing, but it sure looked like Blackbeard had finally returned for his long-awaited revenge.
Where Will It Take You?
While it looks like this bridge is straight out of a fairy tale, it's only in Saxony, Germany. Still, it's impossible to say this creation isn't something spectacular. It's also known as Devil's Bridge.
It isn't near any large cities or populated areas, and it's a little challenging to get to it in the park where it's found, but it looks like it's worth it. The Devil Bridge's name comes from the fact that it seems difficult to build. The builders must have had the Devil's help. We wouldn't be surprised to see some hobbits taking a boat right under it.
Dogs are predators at their core, which means they don't need to blend in with the surrounding area. Sometimes, as you can tell, it still works out that way. Here, we have a red heeler on the left and a blue heeler on the right, and the owner just so happened to find some ground that matched their fur perfectly.
A little uncertainty improves our days, but we imagine this is on the typical walk path. We're also very fond of the mirrored poses the dogs are in, and oh boy, now we want a dog! Any bread will do.
Big armies love to show off, and the Chinese military is undoubtedly significant. They believe they do it the best. However, they're also an intensely-drilled group that, as you can see, can march in lockstep with the best of them.
At first glance, it looks like this image was created with the help of some Photoshop, copying the back rows and layering them on top of each other until you get a long line, but if you look closer, you'll see that every soldier is unique. The uniforms, the walk they're walking, and the way they hold their heads make them look way too similar.
Into Another World
Take a step into another dimension with this image. You aren't looking at a bunch of rocks and trees – you're looking at an ocean with a sailing vessel. This is no postcard. This is reality.
Come to take you off on an adventure. In reality (that sorry old place), this image comes from somebody holding a piece of a broken mirror at the perfect angle and position to catch the boat behind him. The light is perfect, the selection of glass is excellent, and the framing is just proper. Are we sure this isn't an opening into another world? Are we sure?
Is That the Thigh Gap I've Heard So Much About?
Fashion Week is a big moment for everybody who has way too much time on their hands, and it's because fun outfits like this one are revealed. Of course, they're never seen again because most of them are pretty stupid, but this one might have created a stir.
How is such a feat accomplished? Are there portals inside the dress? Is a magician at work behind the scenes? We don't know for sure, but chances are the woman's body is in a piece of black clothing between the two sections, and it's hard to see in this picture because it's on a black background.
Monsieur Moon at Your Service
Every once in a while, the sun sets and the moon rises at the proper time to create something we all call a supermoon – it's not a hero, but it's just much more significant and brighter in the sky. Sometimes, it can turn a little blue or red, too. It's unplanned, and we don't know when it will occur, but when it does, it's phenomenal.
On this occasion, someone was trying to take a pic when something got in the way. It appears to be a wispy little cloud, but it could also be a bird, bat, or maybe some superhero that wants to ruin your pictures.
Protected From the Autumn Effects
While we don't have a way of saying for sure, it looks like this tree is keeping all its leaves thanks to the parking lot light shining down directly onto it. Look at the trees on either side – they're entirely denuded, without a single leaf left, but the tree in the center looks like it hasn't lost a single one.
Sure, we bet that light has something to do with leaves falling, but isn't it more due to the changing temperatures or something like that? Maybe the light puts off just enough heat to sustain the tree. Whatever it is, it's remarkable.
Step Through the Gate
If you're on your way to Mount Lempuyang in Indonesia, you're heading to a volcano that is also the site of a Balinese Hindu temple. To get to those things, you'll have to pass through this intricate and detailed gate, which has stood the test of time.
The Western world knows it as "The Gates of Heaven." If you happen to find yourself in Indonesia, it's an incredible place to visit, and despite how nice this picture is, it hardly does the entire area justice. Beautiful mountains and astonishing architecture are on display, and you simply can't get enough of them.
The Red Kangaroo Is Basically A Body Builder
You wouldn’t want to mess with a red kangaroo even if you've been having major gains at the gym. These kangaroos are more muscular than even the daily gym rats. Despite looking bigger than the Hulk, these animals are also very aggressive. Male red kangaroos can reach a height of up to 5.9 feet tall. The largest kangaroo ever documented measured in at seven feet and 201 lbs. In 2015, Roger the Kangaroo went viral on the internet. This giant red kangaroo weighed almost 200 lbs and could crush metal with his bare hands.
At ten years old, Roger will most likely outgrow and outweigh the heaviest red kangaroo on record. For now, at 200 lbs, he's not doing so shabbily, and we definitely wouldn't want to get on his bad side. Red kangaroos are found across western and central Australia. They usually live in groups of 2-4 members but may congregate at times in numbers as much as 1,500 individuals.
Ludo, The World’s Biggest House Cat, Is Seriously Huge
Maine Coons have the reputation of being one of the largest cat species ever. They are also one of the oldest American breeds. Rumor has it that Maine Coons were created when a brown tabby mated with an actual, wild raccoon. While that's impossible, their size is undeniable. Ludo takes the cake as the biggest of the bunch, measuring in at nearly four feet long.
Although his British friend Stewie (mentioned elsewhere on our list) might have been larger, Ludo currently holds the record after Stewie passed away. This big cat would give some dogs a major run for their money.
Flemish Giant Rabbit Is As Big as the Family Dog
Meet the Flemish Giant Rabbit, a huge breed of domestic rabbit that is the biggest breed of rabbit in the world. These rabbits can weigh up to 22 pounds. The longest one ever recorded was 4 feet 3 inches. The rabbit's large size is clearly visible in this photo, as it is just as large as the dog it's sleeping next to.
While rabbits can make great pets, these are usually bred for their fur and meat. They are very obedient and patient animals. They were bred as far back as the 16th century in Belgium. We just hope that as time goes on, these rabbits will get treated better by us.
I'm Ready For My Lap Time Now
Here is a different type of Mastiff breed we haven't seen before, a Spanish Mastiff, and his size sure stays true to the Mastiff name. Often, owners adopt these dogs as puppies when they are still quite small, unaware of how big they really get! We are sure there is some photo trickery going on here. It's all about perspective, folks.
But nevertheless, there is no denying that this dog is much bigger than your average canine. And oh boy, do they get big. Just look how big he is compared to his human companion, he hasn't realized yet that he has outgrown her lap...
The Leatherback Sea Turtle
Meet the leatherback sea turtle, the largest turtle alive today. It is also one of the heaviest reptiles alive in the world. Although it's a turtle, the leatherback doesn’t have a bone shell. While most turtles have a shell, the leatherback is with its skin exposed. The average size of leatherbacks is 6 to 7 feet in length.
They can weigh between 550 to 1,540 pounds. Leatherbacks around the Caribbean hold the average in size per region. There, they can weigh around 847 pounds. Not much is known about their lifespans. These turtles feast mostly on jellyfish. They reside in oceans all over the world.
The Greatest Great Dane of All Time
This monstrous canine that's fed on a hearty diet of 2 pounds of ground beef daily, casserole steak, liver, and the odd chunk of sofa sponge measures 40.75 inches in length. Freddy, as he is named, resides in Essex, England, and lives with his owner Clair Stoneman. She told the Telegraph that he has destroyed a number of couches, 26 to be exact.
Freddy is also now, at least according to the Guinness World Record, bigger than Zeus as of the year 2017. He is now seven years old. And we imagine that at least a handful of other sofas will get destroyed before everything is said and done.
A Rare Giant Squid
Look, we understand that the bigger the fish you catch, the more impressive it is - but this is taking things way too far, in our humblest opinion. This photo was taken in the Ross Sea, Antarctica. A fishing long-line boat known as San Aspiring came across the world's first intact adult male Mesonychoteuthis hamiltoni - otherwise known as a colossal squid.
This enormous creature weighs a world record 450 kilos and is about 10 meters long. What's more, is that the next biggest creature ever found was 150 kilos lighter! At the time of its discovery, the squid was feasting on a hooked toothfish.
The Tree of God
If there were such a thing as an adult-only nature magazine, this would probably be on the front page. It has it all. It's cheeky, it's glamorous, and it has no filters or Photoshop touches at all. It could also be a great cover for some sort of religious book, trying to convince you to go back to your roots. Are they referring to the tree's roots?
Anyhow, this phenomenal photograph creation was taken at a perfect moment when the rays of sun picked from between the tree's branches. It didnt need more than one iPhone, perfect timing, and the ability to predict the future and see a few seconds ahead. Superb.
This is a beautiful photo taken in Michigan during the fall. It's one of the images you can stare at for hours, and although the geometrical images are simple when put together, they create a phenomenal and impressive piece.
We would love to go to that exact place and take a photograph from a different angle and see how we can play with the angles and colors. Alternatively, take the same photo, just in different seasons. The same, all coated in winter white, varnished in summer rays or sprinkled with all colors of the rainbow on a festive spring afternoon.
And Then There Was a Lake
Abraham Lake, also known as Lake Abraham, lies in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Now, although it is not a creation of nature and was artificially made, it has the most astonishing visions and presents its changing beauty all year round. It is considered the biggest artificial lake in all of Alberta region.
It has a glassy blue color to it and stands out from the surrounding landscapes. The lake is packed with methane ice bubbles that are locked away during the winter months. The place has become a must-see phenomenon when touring the place in any season of the year.
Disappearing in Marocco
The Grande Mosquée Hassan, better known as The Hassan II Mosque, is one of the most famous mosques in Casablanca, Marroco. As of today, it is the biggest mosque that still operates in Africa and the 7th largest in the entire world. Now, that is impressive.
The sandy desserts, typical for Marroco, the blurring sun, and a great photographer created this image of the holly site and managed to make the place even more spiritual than what it already is. It stands 210 meters tall, which is 689 ft. It towers over the Atlantic Ocean and provides spectacular views of the area.
What can be more fascinating than a gorgeous carpet of flowers spotted while traveling the roads? What can be more breathtaking than sunflowers facing east, coloring your way in sunny shades of yellow? But what happens when one shy sunflower has its own way? As we expected, there is always a difficult one in the bunch, and it's been said before.
These are sunflowers, not sun-followers. They will do as they like and turn to the moon if they choose. We all learned in school that what matters is the angle of the leaves and not the actual flowers, so you can be assured that photosynthesis will be accomplished.
One Tree Down
Just look at what one falling tree can create. Initially, this was a small, pleasant swamp with ducks, frogs, and many hickers who would visit the site regularly on weekends. Ever since the tree fell and formed a barrier between one side of the swamp and the other, the duckweed has taken over and now rules the premises.
By the way, we love what the photographer did here, and we think that if duckweed is the price we have to pay for such a great photograph, then some things are expensive in life, and we are willing to shoulder the burden.
A couple was walking in the woods and suddenly came across this spectacular vision. They described it as a rainbow pool they could almost dive into. As it turned out, the family of unicorns were exploring the site when one decided to leave a trail behind.
It's either that or a simple explanation of the sun playing games with leftover rain is what caused this dazzling creation. We envy those who arrived at the exact moment this happened and had a phone on them to document it. Now that we think of it, who doesn't have a phone on them all the time these days?
This Dog is On Fire
This precious little dog is called Rosie. One of Rosie's favorite things is taking a walk just before the sun sets. She loves the warm air and adores the fresh breeze, and more than anything else, she likes taking part in her owner's photo creation. Every day, they take a photo; however, on this specific day, the outcome was astonishing.
Rosie caught the sun just as it was setting and formed a dazzling bright red light just beneath her. Rosie believes that besides being a man's best friend, her photo modeling job for Reddit readers is one of her obligations and a way of showing her owner how much she appreciates him.
The Elephants Came Two by Two
We searched and investigated this next photo for days. We couldn't find anything that would reveal this interfered with Photoshop or any other editing tutorial we can easily find on our phones. Is this water being thrown from one of the buckets? Is this the elephant splashing water from out of its trunk? Who knows?
What we know is that if this is real - then the photographer is amazing ( or just happened to be very lucky with time), and if this was photoshopped in any way, then dude, you got your work on Reddit, and it is making a buzz. Good job.
A Sky Full of Love
Every year, around the same time, birds create an amazing phenomenon we know as starlings in the sky. There's an astonishing amount of birds whirling in the sky, creating a dark blanket of flying objects that, to some, might be intimidating.
No worries, this is not dangerous at all. So, as long as the birds stay up in the sky, we are not alarmed; however, we must admit we have one concern. What happens if all birds have to go do number two at the same time? Is there some kind of insurance that covers damage caused by starlings in the sky?
This could easily be a great album cover for any music band. It has it all. If the left part had been with fire flames, it would consist of all elements: air, water, earth, and fire. Are we the only ones who saw that? This could be an old piece of wood that supported some sort of bridge or maybe some barriers to keep out hikers and tourists from this spectacular piece of land.
This would never remain so peaceful and tranquil if visitors had left their mark. They we would have been left with polluted air, filthy water, damaged earth, and fire.
You Can't Go Too Far
Even if you try, you can't unsee this. Once your brain is exposed to the trying-to-escape cactus, there is no going back. The poor green dude has been stuck on the set of this Western movie since the 1950s. He has tried everything in his power, but the production team is just not interested.
Even Clint Eastwood has tried to sprinkle his charm and make them change their mind; however, they have already moved on and found a different, less prickly, and less intimidating cactus to replace it. What other explanation can you think of when you look at the climbing plant on the mountains?.... That is exactly what we thought....
Cars part 4
Pixar has not said their last word when it comes to the movie Cars. In the first three movies, we follow Dusty Maccween and his animated friends through the adventures they go through, galavanting through the roads of the world. In Cars # 4, Maccween and Matar are not going anywhere. They get stuck in the snowstorm and wait to be rescued.
The new member of the gang, seen here on the left, brings a new and exciting touch to the movie, something Pixar lost in Cars # 3. It is a perfect addition to the beloved series, and the creators still amaze us with what they were able to do by turning one car into a live figure.
