In nature, it is possible to find some oddities that fascinate us even years after they were discovered. Therefore, we have separated 7 mysteries of nature that break our heads until today. Once you finish this list, you are sure to have more questions than answers answered.
If we look a little, it is possible to find chimpanzees doing rituals with trees, creatures with unknown characteristics and even animals that have not yet been identified. In addition to these curiosities, it is also possible to find a “dark side” that we hardly notice in nature. Thus, we can cite unexplained attacks and pregnancies that never end.
1 – A pink manta ray
In early 2020, Kristian Laine dived near a coral reef and took a series of pictures of manta rays. However, when she saw the photos, she noticed that one of the animals had a pink color. At the time, the researcher thought it was a camera error , but it was not the case. As far as we know, the stingray has been seen about 10 other times, however, the reason for its exotic color is still unknown.
2 – Whale group meetings
In 2011, a unique moment was recorded, a group of 200 whales shook an area equivalent to the size of a football field. So it happened again in 2014 and then in 2015. However, after that, we never saw the whale “reunion” again. Whales are believed to have been attracting prisoners and that, due to the large numbers of whaling, the encounters would have disappeared. However, it cannot be said with certainty what happened.
3 – The creature of Indigirka
About 18,000 years ago, a baby of some unknown species died in Siberia. However, his body was frozen and found in the year 2018. Even though it may belong to the family of wolves and dogs, it is not known what the species of the cub is.
4 – Pandas that never completed a pregnancy
At birth, a panda cub is 900 times smaller than its mother. However, puppies are extremely scarce and low birth rates are one of the factors that contribute to the species’ risk of extinction . In addition, every time the animals were born, they seemed to have some kind of malformation. That said, a panda’s gestation time remains a mystery.
5 – Meet the “Unicorn Puppy”
In 2019, a United States shelter found a special puppy . So, instead of having a tail on the back, his tail grew on his forehead. Because of this, he became known as “Unicorn Puppy”. As the tail did not cause any problems, it was maintained. However, it is not yet known how this happened. According to veterinarians, the main suspicion is that he “absorbed” an identical twin, with the organ of the other animal attached to his face.
6 – A mysterious attack on a beach
In 2017, a shocking attack took place on an Australian beach. However, it is not yet clear what happened. After being rescued, Sam Kanizay, a 16-year-old, said he did not know he was bleeding until he came out of the water. Thus, even if uncertain, sea lice are the main suspects in the case. Animals are parasites invisible to the naked eye and do not affect people, only fish . However, some studies claim that they can also affect humans.
7 – Chimpanzee rituals
In this strange scene, a group of chimpanzees walk around a tree and then throw two stones at the tree. That said, no one knows what actually happened or what this “ritual” means. According to researchers, the scene may be related to some sound that we did not hear, but that pleased the chimpanzees by throwing the stone against the tree.
