[Video] 19 Rarest things on Earth


Leucistic Peahowl





Generally, we know that peacocks are one of the colourful birds, with their astonishing feathers. But a white peacock or Leucistic peafowl is a rare Indian peacock that can produce pigment but not deposit the pigment to their feathers. This results in the complete lack of colouration in their plumage and blue-grey eye colour. Leucistic peachicks are born yellow and become fully white as they mature.

Japanese Lantern


Chinese lantern or Japanese lantern is a common plant species that bloom in winter with a reddish opaque husk. But, when they dry up, the outer layer turns into a lantern like structure which gives it a unique appearance.

Rainbow Eucalyptus


A rare type of Eucalyptus trees found in parts of United States and Huawaii, which grow upto 9 metres tall and have a colourful bark. This is known as the Rainbow Eucalyptus or Rainbow gum.

Vase Jewel Squid

This is known as Vase Jewel Squid, which we can find in tropical and sub-tropical regions of Indian and Pacific oceans. They only grow about 20 centimetres tall.

Bismuth Crystals


ou may think these are man-made, but truly these are made by nature. Bismuth crystals which are perfectly geometrical in shape, when are exposed to air, their surface turns colourful.

A standing African Elephant


An elephant standing on it's hind legs is a rarest thing. An African Elephant is an enormous animal, which is 10 to 13 feet tall, that can stand on it's hind legs to reach food on higher branches of trees.

Purple Carrots


While most of us in America have only ever seen orange carrots (at least until recently), the first cultivated carrots were purple and yellow. Carrots were domesticated in Afghanistan and spread to the eastern Mediterranean about a thousand years ago. They reached Europe and China in the 1300s. By the early 1500s, orange carrots could be found in Italy, Spain, and Germany. But purple, yellow, red, and white varieties persisted in Asia and the Middle East.

Purple Corn


Purple corn or purple maize is a variety of flint maize originating from South America. It is more commonly seen in Peru, Bolivia, Colombia and Ecuador. Common in Peru, purple corn is used in chicha morada, a drink made by boiling ground purple corn kernels with pineapple, cinnamon, clove, and sugar, and in mazamorra, a type of pudding.

Humpback whale


The humpback whale is one of the larger species, with adults ranging in length from 12–16 m (39–52 ft) and weighing around 25–30 metric tons (28–33 short tons). The humpback has a distinctive body shape, with long pectoral fins and a knobbly head. Males produce a complex song lasting 10 to 20 minutes, which they repeat for hours at a time. All the males in a group will produce the same song, which is different each season. Its purpose is not clear, though it may help induce estrus in females.

Koroit Opal


Koroit Opal refers to Opal(a gemstone consisting of a form of hydrated silica, typically semi-transparent.) that comes from a particular area in Queensland. They are famous for their deep, strong ironstone with stunning patterns and inclusions of colour. They are also generally larger-sized Opals and are considered the best value for money Opal available.

Bioluminescence



Bioluminescence is the production and emission of light by a living organism. It is a form of chemiluminescence. Bioluminescence occurs widely in marine vertebrates and invertebrates, as well as in some fungi, microorganisms including some bioluminescent bacteria and terrestrial arthropod such as fireflies.

The living Rock


The Pyura chilensis is a marine filter feeder related to sea squirts, with no brain or sensory organs. The fact that this sea creature looks exactly like a rock with guts is not even the weirdest thing about it. It’s also completely immobile like a rock. It eats by sucking in water and filtering out microorganisms and its clear blood mysteriously secretes a rare element called vanadium. Also, it’s born male, becomes hermaphroditic at puberty, and reproduces by tossing clouds of sperm and eggs into the surrounding water and hoping they knock together.

Underwater forest of Lake Kaindy


Lake Kaindy is located in the south of Kazakhstan. The lake was formed as the result of a major limestone landslide triggered by the 1911 Kebin earthquake forming a natural dam. It blocked the gorge and was filled by mountain river water. Lake Kaindy is about 400 meters long, reaching depths of nearly 30 meters at its deepest point. Altered by limestone deposits, the water maintains a bluish-green color. The lake contains trunks of submerged trees that rise above the surface of the lake. The area is often referred to as a "sunken forest". The cold water helps preserve the tree trunks, which are overgrown with algae and various other water plants. In recent years, Lake Kaindy has become a popular international tourist destination.

Aurora



An aurora (plural: auroras or aurorae) sometimes referred to as polar lights, northern lights (aurora borealis), or southern lights (aurora australis), is a natural light display in the Earth's sky, predominantly seen in the high-latitude regions (around the Arctic and Antarctic). Auroras are the result of disturbances in the magnetosphere caused by solar wind.

Tasmanian Giant Crab


The Tasmanian giant crab is a very large species of crab that resides on rocky and muddy bottoms in the oceans off Southern Australia. It reaches a mass of 17.6 kg (39 lb) and a carapace width of up to 46 cm (18 in).

Rafflesia Arnoldii


Rafflesia arnoldii, commonly called the corpse lily or stinking corpse lily, is a species of flowering plant in the parasitic genus Rafflesia. It is noted for producing the largest individual flower on Earth. It has a very strong and unpleasant odour of decaying flesh, earning it the nickname "corpse flower". It is endemic to the rainforests of Sumatra and Borneo.

Flying Fish


While they cannot fly in the same way a bird does, flying fish can make powerful, self-propelled leaps out of water where their long wing-like fins enable gliding for considerable distances above the water's surface. The main reason for this behavior is thought to be to escape from predators.

Ammolite Gemstone


Ammolite is an opal-like organic gemstone found primarily along the eastern slopes of the Rocky Mountains of North America.

The glowing forest of Shikoku, Japan



There is an enchanted forest in Shikoku, Japan where glowing mushrooms create a fantasy-like ambiance for a short period of time every year. These bioluminescence mushrooms emerge during the rainy season in the forests of Japan.

These are for now... Hope these amazing things filled your mind with joy!!
