Some people believe that there is nothing unexplored remaining on Earth, but the world doesn’t cease to surprise us with its mysteries. Today I’ll tell you about the lost places of the planet and animals that live only there.
Melville range Australia
located high on a giant cobblestone in Cape York in the north of Queensland, in 2013 biologists discovered a tropical forest which can only be reached by amazing helicopter species of animal were found there live only here in the forest.
For example, a gecko lizard with a leaf-like Dale Seema Humboldt Venezuela on a remote plateau in Venezuela are many funnels, but the largest of them is Sima humble. It was discovered only in 1961. The nearly circular pitfalls to a depth of almost three hundred fourteen meters. It is so large that its own ecosystem with many scientifically unknown plants has formed on its bottom. Given the mythical and mysterious placement, this funnel like a lost world turned out to be on our planet
The spine of Scotia s Oceana
At a depth of two kilometers 400 meters in South Oceana. There is a unique water site which was found in 2012. This place is heated by hydrothermal Springs. Its temperatures reach three hundred eighty-two degrees Celsius huge colonies of unknown species thrive in a warm dark environment. Scientists have discovered a large number of albinos such as this octopus or this anti crab that uses the hair on its claws to grow bacteria that detoxify the boys in the water.
mountains of Palawan The Philippines
In 2007 during an expedition on the isolated territory of the island of Palawan. Mysterious plants were discovered at the very tops of the mountains are the remains of another world. Scientists examined exotic species which are found nowhere else on Earth, for example, such a large carnivorous plant that feeds on rodents and even small monkeys. There are pink ferns and blue mushrooms which remain a mystery.
Greater of bosavi the New Guinea
It was recently discovered that a one-kilometer crater is a home for many animals that have become isolated from the outside world since its last eruption which occurred two hundred thousand years ago. It was investigated in 20 0 9 for the BBC film The Lost World of the volcano. The group found more than 40 unknown species of animals, for example, this giant rat measuring eighty-two centimeters in length.
the cave of Melville Romania
In 1986 during geological investigations before the construction of the power plant at a depth of 18 meters. A closed cave system with peculiar conditions was discovered fed by the subterranean waters called Melville. It had its own atmosphere. This cave contains a unique ecosystem that has existed and is developing presumably for the last five million years without a connection to the Earth’s surface 46 terrestrial and aquatic invertebrates were discovered.
Among them are arthropods leeches and mollusks, The inhabitants of the cave are blind and oriented to touch and smell as well as catching the slightest vibrations of the stone air or water.
Mount to Roraima South America
Mount to Rama the most famous and concurrently highest Venezuelan mountain. It reaches a height of two thousand eight hundred ten meters. Researchers managed to find an unusual animal here, which was named Caballo Saunders.
It looks like a huge snake with a horse’s head and humps on its back. The length of its body is about 15 meters aunts Gulliver’s longer than five centimeters in length. Found their steel jaws snack on branches. But the biggest discovery was the remains of ancient animals that lived here quite recently. What they died from is not clear. Perhaps they were experimented on by aliens. This conjuncture is not without reason. Since not far from the waterfall, the expedition found a large round platform without vegetation and sprinkled with some silvery powder. Laboratory research later found that it is an alloy of rare metals that do not really get out of the Earth.
The challenger’s ibis
The deepest point of the Mariana Trench with a most amazing ecosystem on Earth. Its depth is ten thousand nine hundred seventy-one meters.
In comparison the height of the highest point of the world, Mount Everest eight thousand eight hundred forty-eight meters. However, at a depth of one thousand six hundred meters from the surface of the Pacific Ocean, there are hydrothermal springs that heat the water to 450 degrees Celsius. But it does not boil here due to incredible pressure. One hundred fifty-five times higher than on the surface at the bottom of the Mariana Trench. Giant ten-centimeter amoeba was found in comparison. The length of an ordinary amoeba is half a millimeter. The high-temperature pressure and lack of sunlight likely contributed to the fact that these amoebas have acquired non-standard sizes.
Such lost worlds are on our planet. It would seem that everything has already been investigated but no. There are still many places on Earth where there was no man.
