Each day, more than 10 million golden jellyfish perform a habitual migration within Jellyfish Lake, a remote marine lake on the island of Palau. While jellyfish are often know for drifting aimlessly at sea, these golden jellies propel themselves forward by pumping water through their golden bells. This daily dance draws numerous visitors to the Pacific Island’s Jellyfish Lake each year.

Belle The Hippo Leningrad

Of all the horrors of war, a destitute hippo is one of the last sights you’d expect to see. Translated directly from the source: “Belle survived the war thanks to her caretaker, Yevdokia Dashina. In 1941 water was turned off throughout the city and Belle’s pool was empty, so her skin began to dry out and crack. Every day, Dashina would drag a 40-liter barrel of water from the Neva river and rub the suffering hippo with camphor oil. Eventually, Belle’s skin healed and she was able to hide underwater through the air raids.”
