Nature is amazing. So amazing that I don’t even believe it half the time. I mean, have you SEEN pictures of those deep sea fish? Or the fossilized imprints of dragonflies with six foot wingspans?
Those things EXIST (or existed) in the real world, and here we are just going about our day pretending it’s fine.
It’s not fine. It’s ridiculous. And somebody oughta do something about it, like, say, take to Twitter and share random facts.
Enjoy these ridiculous nature realizations.
Don’t let them fool you, it’s all because of their strict Cheeto diet.

The Earth is angry and waiting to strike.
Reading about #TaalVolcano makes it a bit scarier. I was today years old when I learned that it's categorized as a supervolcano and what we see are only the visible craters from the 47 it has, the rest are underwater when the volcano collapsed from a past eruption ages ago. pic.twitter.com/yAafdCdDgz

This almost seems like an inefficient use of space.

The more I learn about these creeps, the less I trust them.

4. Donkeys and lambs
“Lol what?” – lambs, probably
I was today years old when I found out about donkey nannies, which are donkeys that are used in Italy to transport newborn lambs down from the mountains for seasonal grazing. pic.twitter.com/d1HmsC7GS5

2. Yellow watermelon
Why do I feel like I’m gonna get superpowers if I eat one of these?

Letting anything in nature be simple would just be overeasy.
