Unusual and Weird Things ~ Part 4

Continuing with the series:  25 unusual and weird things with you. 

Of course there are probably millions of unusual and weird things to be found in the world. 

But I narrowed it down to 25 that I chose to share. They are all very cool.

Here are parts one through three in case you missed them:

 Unusual and Weird Things ~ Part 1

Unusual and Weird Things ~ Part 2

Unusual and Weird Things ~ Part 3

I will continue with part four, listing four at a time, adding photos for your entertainment.

    • 3. Other than serving as a breeding area for the endangered Lesser Flamingo and as a home to certain kinds of algae and bacteria, Lake Natron is inhospitable to life.
