So what is the rarest animal on the planet? Actually, that is a surprisingly difficult question to answer. Accurately determining the number of animals in a particular species is not a walk in the park since most don’t really participate in censuses. Some animals are so rare that they might already be extinct and we just don’t know it yet. Others are extinct in the wild and can only be found in captivity. But from what we know, the four creatures featured below are as rare as prime rib.

The sloth is already one of the most adorable creatures on Earth, but to be honest, it’s not really much of a survivor. You put it in any kind of dangerous situation and it is likely to perform poorly. Therefore, it shouldn’t be that surprising to find out that the pygmy three-toed sloth is critically endangered.

Millions of people travel to Paris every year. It has some of the most recognizable landmarks and tourist attractions in the world. However, few of them make the time to visit the city of light’s dark corners: the catacombs. Housing some of the largest ossuaries in the world, if you ever find yourself in Paris, make sure to visit the City of the Dead resting right beneath your feet.

So what is it? An ossuary is a site used as a final resting place for skeletal remains. Sometimes these can be just a box or a room or, as is the case with Paris, an entire underground lair. Down in the catacombs, you will find the skulls and other bones from over six million people.

Useless Products That Are Frustratingly Funny

Sometimes the Invisible Hand messes up and brings items to market that hinder us more than they do help us. They don’t work appropriately, or they’re difficult to use. However, we probably haven’t experienced true dissatisfaction and anger until imagining trying to use these very badly-albeit humorously- designed products. Some people just want to set the world on fire to watch it burn.

Carhenge – When Metal Meets Art

Roadside Sculpture

Source: History

Stonehenge is one of the world’s most well-known and mysterious monuments, but you don’t have to travel all the way to Salisbury, England in order to see it. As with most other European icons, the United States—more specifically Nebraska—has appropriated one of the continent’s most impressive artifacts for its own enjoyment. The small difference here? This Nebraskan Stonehenge is made out of cars.

That’s right. If you happen to travel to Alliance, Nebraska, make sure to stop by Carhenge. As the name suggests, the monument is a replica of the famous Stonehenge but formed with discarded automobiles. Even so, this isn’t some kind of huckster tourist trap. The entire construction consists of 38 different vehicles, all of which are painfully arranged to form a 100-foot wide circle that emulates the actual arrangement found at Stonehenge. Most impressive of all is that Carhenge is the brainchild of just one man – artist Jim Reinders.
