Everybody loves the great outdoors every now and then. Hiking, trekking, or even just a random fresh breath of air can feel so rewarding. But what if you come across something truly bizarre out there? You might think you've seen it all, but sometimes you just need to prepare to expect the absolutely unexpected. Keep reading to see unpredictable surprises and moments created by mother nature herself; you definitely won't want to look away.
A Big Pepper With Tiny Secrets
Imagine the surprise of cutting into a giant pepper only to find a smaller one inside- but imagine the amazement when you bite into the smaller to find another hidden tiny pepper. There is no need to fantasize because this person experienced that and even captured a photo as evidence. This has to be a once-in-a-lifetime find, which is cool and is the only appropriate time to call vegetables adorable.
It's safe to say that there was simply an entire extended family of produce hidden inside the big one, indeed an extra tasty gift from the great place we call a supermarket.
Nature's Toe Is Made of Stone
In this picture is something far from an average rock lying around outside. This stone is perfectly rounded like a big toe and even has a marking shaped as an accurately squared toenail. This is certainly a keeper and belongs to be kept safely in a rock collection to display proudly. But hopefully, no stone men are walking around outside without a big toe- if so, this person has it.
It's always fun to pick up a cool rock or two that you've found on the ground, but coming across one shaped as a body part is certainly a rare find.
This Flower Couldn't Wait to Grow
This person claims that her mom took way too long to plant this beautiful flower, so it decided to grow through the top of the box instead. It's truly amazing to be reminded that plants quite literally have minds of their own and will pretty much do whatever they feel like doing. Clearly, this flower didn't have the tolerance to wait for the woman to take it out of its packaging.
Sometimes, we don't have the patience or time just to hang around and wait for things to happen- this picture completely proves that this applies to both humans and flowering plants, too.
There's an Entire Planet Hidden in This Pig Ear
The anatomical cells of this pig ear look just like the deep and colorful terrains of the planet Saturn. There's no telling why this person decided to look at this thing for science, but we're glad they did because this incredible sight would have remained unnoticed. A microscope is genuinely an excellent way to help us appreciate the little things, even if we didn't know they existed in the first place.
From our eyes, we can only really look at the big picture- imagine how many natural things look as cool as this one if we just slightly changed our perspectives.
This Guy Shared a Moment With a Carrot
Pictured here is a carrot that grew in a naturally cool way, and this man, who looks like he's about to make a salad- posed next to it for an even more fantastic photo opportunity. Vegetables grow in all types of shapes and sizes, but this is a unique one for sure and certainly looks much different than all the other carrots on that cutting board- they honestly shared a moment.
If you've never thought that a human being could deeply bond with a carrot, you're wrong. They genuinely look like they're having a pretty good time together, regardless of the vegetable's fate.
A Chicken Laid a Really Weird Egg
This chicken laid something oddly shaped that looks more like a pebble than an egg. But a person didn't pick this thing off the ground- they found it in a chicken coop. The environment might have been confused when nature took its course while the chicken was forming this egg, which is worth a photo shoot and is impressive. One can only wonder what other shapes this person's pet could make.
There's simply no denying that this egg is incredibly strange-looking, but it's probably just as tasty as a normal one and will do perfectly fine in the usual breakfast omelet.
A Dog With a Snaggletooth Birthmark
This adorable furry guy was born with a natural birthmark that looks as if he has a sharp tooth pointing out from his mouth. This perfectly matches up with that underbite, which is basically just a permanent smile that likely causes lots of laughs from anyone who sees it. Dogs come in all kinds of cool patterns and markings, but this pup is certainly unique and hopefully feels extra special.
He just looks like he's smiling extra hard and most obviously proves to be extra handsome in all of his adorable photoshoots. This is definitely the cutest birthmark on the entire planet.
This Palm Tree Is Growing Through Another Tree
Somehow, this tree has split right through the bark of a neighboring one while growing. The person who discovered this occurrence may have documented the world's strongest palm tree ever to exist because this seems pretty challenging to do and uncommon. Thankfully, it just missed hitting those power lines, which could have created a dangerous situation, but nature was on a sole mission of minimal drama during this tree's lifetime.
This unusual event seems to have turned this tree into a strange object which looks like it may have roamed our planet at the same time as the dinosaurs during the Jurassic era.
This Bread Grew Mold That Looks Like a Sun
This person's bread grew mold that ironically looks exactly like the logo on the packaging, which could have created a disgusting mistake. Usually, mold doesn't look this colorful and fun and is frequently more alarming in terms of how it looks. But, this has blended and camouflaged so perfectly and looks as if the company printed another sun onto the plastic bag. It's pretty but will still make its way to the trash.
It could have been really easy to have taken a bite of bread thinking the mold was just a part of the package, but thankfully, this person noticed this, and that didn't happen.
A Potato That Knows What's Coming
Imagine the surprise of getting ready to chop up a bunch of potatoes, only to see one making a sad face that is almost way too human-like. That is exactly what someone encountered, and this potato doesn't look too glad about its potential fate. Happy or not, these starchy things are simply delicious, and this thing was likely still cut into pieces, whether it wanted to or not. May it rest in peace.
This potato obviously does not want to be part of any human feeding purposes, but can you blame it? This thing is almost so cute; you want to save it.
This Tiny Gecko Shed a Smaller Glove
A small gecko naturally created a glove that exactly resembled his tiny yet adorable little hands. You can pretty much see every small detail from his scaley skin to those microscopic fingernails. A scaley creature shedding its skin isn't completely unusual and is entirely organic, but ending up with something like this as the end product is really cool. Surely this process results in all shapes and sizes, but this glove is far from basic.
One can wonder if this gecko could ever appreciate the fact that it shed off something that looks incredibly pleasing and perfect. Probably not, but still- a job very well done.
A Cat With a Hilarious Mustache
This cat has a very dapper and fluffy mustache that looks like it's sitting right underneath his nose. Of course, cat noses are one of the cutest things in the universe to start with, but that hairy stache simply seals the deal, for sure. It's funny how some animals have highly human-like qualities, making them all the more loveable. Amazingly, those qualities are often comical and surprising just like the cat in this image.
This furry guy looks incredibly dapper with his mustache, although seems to be a bit confused as to why everyone thinks it's so cute. He would like to be taken seriously.
The Snow on This Windshield Rolled Perfectly
This sheet of snow might actually be a perfectionist because it's rolled off of this window in the most satisfying way possible during the beginning of its melting process. While disappearing snow might be disappointing at times, simply looking at this image is pleasing enough to make up for that. It's genuinely crazy how things like this just naturally happen and that we're able to come across nature's randomly gratifying events.
Snowflakes are usually the more memorable part of a cold Winter's day when they come around, but this pile of snow has rolled so perfectly it might as well be an ice burrito.
This Dog's Has A Glowing Ear
In this picture is a dog who has a right ear that glows when the sun hits it. It's funny that this animal's other ear doesn't do the same, proving that this is one special dog- who also happens to be super cute at the same time. There's no way to know why only one ear glows; it might be because the other is too hairy to let any light through.
This Australian Shepard is purely gorgeous, and combined with its unique feature; it's purely the perfect pet for all modeling purposes- every picture obviously goes well above and beyond charming.
A Tree With a Star in Its Center
Whoever took this picture found a tree branch with a really cool shape hidden in the center- a perfect star with four points. The only thing that led to this was luck because it could have easily remained undiscovered since someone would have had to look very close in order to find the natural creation. We seriously haven't seen any other plants that have a design as astonishing as this one in the center.
Typically, we can tell the age of a tree through the lines that grow around its core. This one has a star in the center instead, which clearly means it's both awesome and ageless.
The Shadow Created a Musical Note
This sign was hit by light from a perfect angle which created a shadow that looks exactly like a music note. The fact that someone captured something like this ideal creation while minding their own business is super impressive. The world really does work in strange ways, and in this case, all credit goes to that bright and sunny thing in the sky for forming this musical mystery on the ground.
This could be the first musical shadow ever created, which is fantastic. Coming across something like this on your way to work may make you want to break out in song, though.
Someone Found a Round Egg
In this picture is an egg that looks quite different from the average one that you would get from the grocery store. The chicken that made this egg must have been feeling a bit rebellious the day this thing was laid and decided to stray away from the usual oval egg for a round one. Although different, this will certainly still taste great and could fit right into any cake recipe.
Let's hope that this egg does not get mistaken for a ping-pong ball because that is an easy mistake that would indeed create a very messy situation for everyone involved.
These Potatoes Sprouted in the Strangest Way
Somebody forgot about a bunch of potatoes that have overripen and look like they have morphed into some kind of purple spotted creatures. Hopefully, these otherworldly and strange-looking organisms will soon make their way to the trash can, where they rightfully belong. They had sprouted to the degree that nobody in which nobody knew nature could create- probably because most of us would trash these vegetables before they got to that point.
These vegetables look like something that was picked off of an alien tree from the movie Avatar. Though, those would probably be way tastier than the ones rotting inside of this bowl.
A Scratched Cornea Under UV Light
Under purple light, this chemical formula turned neon green inside of this person's eye to make it easier for their doctor to detect if there were any scratches. This process is so strange looking and certainly does not look like anything close to natural, but it seems like it was necessary. It's a fairly simple process that looks very creepy but surely this person's eye ended up healing fairly quickly after the procedure.
This looks like a scene from a sci-fi movie. Still, it's a normal and standard procedure for anyone who goes to the eye doctor with a possible cornea injury- which doesn't sound pleasant.
Her Boyfriend's Plant Sprouted Smaller Ones
This person's boyfriend had a plant that was starting to grow in the most unusual way- it began sprouting miniature ones from the edges of a single leaf. Nature might have been a bit confused when it was sorting out the growing process of this thing. Still, we're positive that nobody is complaining because those little guys are actually quite adorable and seem to be comfortable right where they are.
These tiny sprouts seriously look as if they are a natural part of the plant, but this living thing actually had a different plan than growing as it usually should.
Poo on a Windshield Casted a Cool Shadow
It's not uncommon to get into our vehicles only to see that some kind of creature has gladly done its business on the windshield of our car. Though, it's not likely that many of us have noticed that the shadow of the poo turns into the exact shape of a bird. The chances of that happening are probably slim to none, so this seems like a very odd yet rare occasion.
Clearly, this bird poo knew exactly where it came from and wanted it to be known, which was loud and clear for the person driving this car though it is one of the weirdest silhouettes.
This Has Evolved Into The Coolest Can of Sealant
This damaged can was left under someone's sink for a while and slowly evolved into a towering masterpiece as it was leaking. This thing entirely morphed by itself and seems like it decided to stop right when the moment was right, on its own time. Sometimes it's hard not to think that inanimate objects can make decisions for themselves, especially when you come across something as interesting as this one.
With that fantastic towering shape, this once leaking can of sealant is an official work of art and is now worthy enough to be added to some kind of modern museum.
This Miniature Pomegranate Grew on a Tree
This person took a picture of a cute little pomegranate that grew from their mom's bonsai pomegranate tree. Miniature fruits are arguably the best types of fruits when they come around every once in a while, but no one knows how or why they develop so differently from the rest of their neighboring ones. Maybe this one in particular just had zero determination for transitioning into adulthood, and honestly, we get it.
This fruit is so tiny that it almost looks like it's actually a toy that is both edible and tasty. Truly, that is not something that can often be said for toys.
Sahara Dust Created Yellow Skies in a Cold Region
It's really amazing that far away desert dust was able to travel this far distance over to Switzerland's ski regions. It seems like this event might have created minimal visibility for the people on this slope, but this also formed a view that might have been a once-in-a-lifetime thing. The weather works in wondrous and unexplainable ways all the time and this awesome picture might be total proof of that.
The winds must have been really strong on the day that this happened, but, regardless, this unusual phenomenon has created a sepia-toned and blurry sky as well as this incredible image.
A Two For One Banana
At first glance, this picture looks to be a single banana that was split into two pieces, but in reality- it's two bananas in one that are both completely separated from each other. This might just be mildly interesting, but the real fun is trying to figure out how or why something like that would happen, which might not really matter if you had the chance to eat this thing.
Whoever opened this thing hit the fruit jackpot although something did go clearly wrong in the development of this banana, thankfully the results are simply beneficial and taste good, too.
This Bird Laid an Egg on a Window
Directly outside a window, a dove created a tiny home and comfortably laid a single egg between a gathering of small sticks. This nest doesn't look very extraordinary; in fact, it's the epitome of basic, and based on this bird's look, she might be a little bit embarrassed about that. Regardless of her poor nest-building skills, it is really cool that the person who captured this image was able to witness this moment.
Typically, birds tend to lay their eggs in warm and hidden places that are not as open and visible as this windowsill, but this one must not have cared about her privacy.
A Stinging Tentacle Got Wrapped Around An Ankle
A poisonous tentacle got wrapped around the ankle of this foot, and the outcome couldn't have been pleasant. This painful situation was caused by a Portuguese Man of War, which are creatures that can create an extremely painful reaction, that is sometimes deadly. Knowing this information, just looking at this picture will make you cringe- a sting is common, but this person was incredibly left this the entire tentacle. Hopefully, they healed quickly.
At first glance, this looks like a cute ankle bracelet. In fact, this is not jewelry and if it were, it would be the most painful pendant on the face of the earth.
This Glove Looks Like It Came With Claws
The glove here came with a gardening kit, which also allowed a moment of fun and a picture for this person before they got down to the dirty work of planting. We're not sure what the purpose of these claws is- hopefully, they're not meant for digging because well, finger digging sounds a bit difficult. Fashion-wise, this is like Sully from Monsters Ink and Cat-Women decided to come together to create a unique accessory.
The gardening tool kit will get your plants plotted while also turning you into some kind of eco-friendly and dirt-covered version of a cartoon, which doesn't sound too bad if you really think about it.
A Person Pulled Up in a Shark Helmet
The camouflage jacket and the shark head make it seem like this person was torn between land and sea, so he decided to go with both while riding his red bike. This guy might be slightly embarrassed if he found out that someone captured this awkward photo while sitting at a red light, or maybe making everyone confused while also causing a laugh or two was the purpose of this attire.
This thing officially became the fishiest helmet in town when they pulled up next to the photographer, luckily, they have a really cool motorcycle to make up for the weird helmet.
These Birds Changed so Much in 5 Days
The doves pictured here were, for some reason, laid in a potted plant which is an odd spot to grow up. In a short time, they shockingly changed completely and even developed a new set of grey feathers, just proving that they were ready for adulthood. This was probably a really fun and amazing sight to see; it's not often that we get to experience the super-fast evolution of baby birds getting ready to leave the nest.
Seeing this enormous change must be the exact equivalent of watching your children grow up. But, where a long 18 years is just cut down to less than a week.
The World's Scariest Cabbage
With pointed teeth and all, this scary vegetable looks like it has turned this basic kitchen appliance into a fridge of horrors. This cabbage must have had bad intentions as it sprouted out from the ground at the start while knowing its delicious fate of being put into a salad. Fruits and vegetables often grow in a variety of shapes and sizes, but not often do they look like they are about to start growling.
This super angry cabbage is permanently putting on a mean face because it has no intentions of being eaten and you can't really blame him if you think about it.
A Very Hungry Tree
Edited or not, this is still a cool picture of what looks like a rock getting ready for an evening meal. This would be a peculiar sight to encounter when taking a casual stroll through a nearby forest. Instead of getting a taste of nature, you'd get to witness a tree getting a taste of some gravel, and that would be a great story to tell until the end of time.
The tree in this picture was obviously hungry and had a strong craving for a mouthful of pebbles, so it went for the nearby rock and happily took a bite.
This Mushroom Is Enormous
Instead of showing the giant size of this mushroom with a tape measure, an adorable corgi has been used for scale. Although the dog is clearly the staple of this image, let's not ignore the fact that this mushroom is insanely giant and deserves to be noticed. The leopard print design on it is also magnificent and makes this look like it is also some kind of animal as opposed to a fungus.
The corgi pictured here is proudly modeled next to this giant fungi and it's truly fabulous. The fluffy four-legged pet truly belongs to be on the cover of Vogue Magazine as soon as possible.
Frost That Looks Like a Cat
The frost on this ice glove looks like the face of a cat. All the features are there, from the eyes and nose to the shapes of the ears. Imagine the surprise of needing to apply some ice only to see a silhouette like this. We're not sure why it happened and nobody will ever know the answer to that, but it is miraculous and weird at the same time.
On this glove might be the chilling image of a ghost cat, or it could also just be some cold frost that incredibly morphed into a portrait of a feline.
A Sunflower Is Growing Its Own Flower
If this is real, our planet had a moment to decide on a change and allowed this plant to grow from the center of a beautiful sunflower. This picture is amazing, and this double flower looks like some kind of prehistoric plant that existed way before our time. Hopefully, this person picked it up and took this home because it is certainly a keeper that deserves to be showcased for everyone to see.
This flower felt different from all of the rest and had no problem with another flowering occupying it to grow, and it really looks pretty; it truly was made for a vase.
This Tomato Might Be Haunted
Take a look at this; it's the definition of freaky- if produce were ever able to reach that level, this would genuinely be the one. The person that collected this vegetable thought that maybe their tomato plant was trying to tell them something. This is, quite honestly, a very good thought, and they likely had absolutely no idea of what to do with the creepy thing once they found it.
If this weren't a vegetable, it would be a terrifying, haunted doll that belongs nowhere other than in the trash. This tomato is simply scary; it's time to look away.
Bright Blue Edible Mushrooms
In this picture are mushrooms that were, in fact, picked from our earth and didn't come from the planet, Neptune. The unique colors of these are likely due to some kind of oxidation process when they were cut but actually look like somebody painted them themselves. One can wonder how cool these would look inside a juicy burger or even a colorful salad- let's just hope that they taste good.
These indigo mushrooms are such a strange, bright color that they look like something humans should stay away from. But actually, they are entirely edible and entirely safe for consumption.
This Crab Has a Cool Marking
The person who took this picture happened to pick up this tiny crab while spending some time on the beach and noticed that it had a crab-like structure on its back. This guy might have been the smallest one on the beach because it barely fits between those two human fingers, though it seems a bit surprised to have been randomly picked up and admired. Also, that is undoubtedly a rare design on its shell.
This crab was either born with a super cool and natural birthmark or crawled its way over to the local crustacean tattoo shop and requested this design, either way- it's impressive.
A Spider Found the Perfect Home
Not only is this spider web looking incredible, the bug who gets all of the credit truly found the perfect place to settle down. That area happened to be inside the eye of a really creepy statue, but that's okay- no judgment. Honestly, it looks like a good place if you were a bug that couldn't conceptualize fear, like a spider. They even made a hole right in the center of the eye.
This seems like a warm and cozy dark place to build a home, so, it makes sense as to why this spider decided to crawl up into that open spot.
A Cat Can Do a Crazy Split
This cat is able to sit in a position that looks super uncomfortable at first, but it's actually because he has no sensation in his back legs. Also, according to the owner- this cat's name is Chorizo, so after knowing that- this picture has instantly become a million times cuter. Not only that, but his splits are on point, truly impressive, and he seems to be very comfortable and content.
This furry guy might have been a gymnast in its past life because a split like this is insanely hard to do for an average person- and that goes for animals too.
