Mother Nature can be wonderful and terrifying at the same time. The truth is that nature is unpredictable and can surprise us in the most bizarre ways. In this collection of pictures we’ve shared below, you will get to see some of the rarest and strangest things that actually exist on our planet. From flowers blooming in a desert too red rainbows and mossy frogs, these are some abnormally freaky things that you are unlikely to have ever seen in real life. Take a look.
1. A petunia that appears to reflect the galaxy.
2. A rare desert bloom in the Atacama Desert in Chile.
3. A rare lenticular cloud forming over Mt. Fuji in Japan.
4. A Vietnamese mossy frog (Theloderma corticale). It's green body, black spots, and spines make it look like a clump of moss. The frog actually pretends to be moss to avoid predators and is usually found in mossy caves and in the banks of rocky mountain streams.
