18 Times Nature Surprised Us So Much, We Couldn’t Handle It

Nature is a surprising thing. Animals and plants can often deviate from the norm, like how penguin eggs can turn clear from the heat. Even when you think you understand the rules of life, there is always that strange exception proving that nature has a lot of things in store for us.

We have collected various photos that basically say: don’t toy with Mother Nature...she’s too busy toying with us!

1. Okenites are minerals that form such fragile, bendable crystals, they look like fluffy cotton balls.




2. Stress can cause chickens to lay eggs with strange pigmentation.

17. There’s an island in the Bahamas populated by feral pigs...it’s often called Pig Beach.



18. With the help of fungus, ice can form so finely that it looks like hair... and it’s actually called hair ice.
