Atlas Moth is the largest moth species (wing span of 30cm) in the world. Most commonly found in Southeast Asia, the moth is so named because its wing patterns are said to resemble maps. The moth's wing tips also appear to resemble a snake's head, which may be a tactic to scare off predators. Despite its grandeur, it will only live about a week. by Amy Oliver, dailymail.co.uk. #Atlas_Moth
Always have eggs in your fridge. You just never know when someone will split their head open, or cut their finger while cooking, and so on. See that membrane there? While the blood is gushing - hold pressure and crack open an egg. Peel the membrane off and put it on the wound (continue holding pressure). The membrane will harden and keep the wound closed until you can get to the ER for stitches. If you even need them that is. Nature: 1, Band aids: 0
The World’s Most Valuable Pearl by ferrebeekeeper: Selling for hundreds of thousands of dollars, these come not from oysters, but instead from very large sea snails of the species Melo melo, which live in the tropical waters of southeast Asia. These huge marine gastropods live by hunting other smaller snails along the shallow underwater coasts of the Southeast Asia seas. Unlike the nacreous pearls from oysters & abalones, these have a porcelain-like transparent shine. #Pearl #Melo_melo

The Allende meteorite, as it came to be called, is a rare type of meteorite and turned out to contain some of the oldest matter known in our planetary system.
