This Ancient Chinese Tree Is Over 1,400 Years Old

At the Gu Guanyin Buddhist Temple in China’s Zhongnan Mountains sits a very special tree.

You may not realize it, but the oldest living organisms on the planet are actually trees. Some trees have been around for as long as 9,550 years. 

This famous Chinese ginko tree is a relative baby compared to those at around 1,400 years old… but it’s a lot more famous thanks to one very special quality.

Breathtaking Underwater Photos

This haunting image is of a seal swimming through a majestic kelp forest. This image is actually part of an annual photography competition put on by the University Of Miami which receives over 700 entries. One must wonder what was going through the mind of this seal as his photo was being snapped.

Hell Beast Thing
No, this is not some alien spawn coming to suck your life source through your skull. This glow-in-the-dark hell beast is actually from Earth. We're not sure what it does, or why it does it, but we suspect that its main purpose in life is to scare all underwater creatures, thereby maintaining order under the sea

School Time
David Fleetham captured this amazing picture as a large school of fish were gathered in motion. The ghostly blue water set the tone for this touching image. One has to wonder about the urgency with which they travel, and where they're going.

Highlighter Nemo!
Joshua Lambus has put together a stunning photograph collection of luminous underwater creatures. As beautiful as this fish looks, it's incredibly unappetizing. Sometimes you have to make serious sacrifices for art, or so they say.

Rainbow Squid

This beautiful squid with translucent skin uses tiny cells all over its body to change colors. Why do they change colors you ask? So they can attract a mate of course. It seems that no matter the species, everyone is concerned with their appearance. Credit to famed photographer Todd Brett for taking this amazing picture.
