    Raccoons are known for their bandit black and white look, which is what makes this albino creature an anomaly. Unlike their friends, albino raccoons lack any sort of camouflage which makes hiding from predators difficult and thus their lifespan shorter. Albinism is a congenital disease that causes either partial or complete loss of pigmentation in an animal.

It was considered to be the largest of its kind at the time and was bought by the Saint Louis Zoo where it remains to this day.

    Elephant's tails have a few uses. For example elephants can use their tails to communicate with each other; much like a dog, a swishing or wagging tail can signify happiness or excitement.

    Baby elephants sometimes hold on to the tail of older animals while they are walking, for guidance and security on long walks. The tail full of hair also works as a flyswatter, to help keep away those annoying and biting flies.

    The ancient and mysterious 'Easter Island Heads' were carved from rock between A.D 1100 and 1500 by ancient Polynesians. Their traditional name is 'moai' but most people know them as the giant heads which is why it is often shocking when it's discovered they have bodies. "The reason people think they are [only] heads is there are about 150 statues buried up to the shoulders on the slope of a volcano, and these are the most famous, most beautiful and most photographed of all the Easter Island statues," Van Tilburg, who is also a fellow at the Cotsen Institute of Archaeology at the University of California, Los Angeles, told Life's Little Mysteries.

    Aurora's are breathtaking cosmic light displays that can be seen from various planets in our solar system. An aurora is the finale to a process that begins with the sun. The sun emits a constant stream of charged particles or solar wind into the solar system. When these winds reach a planet they interact with the magnetic field that surrounds it, and compresses the field into a teardrop shape. The way in which the magnetic field change cause the charged particles to accelerate into the upper atmosphere, colliding with molecules such as nitrogen and oxygen which gives off energy in the form of light. A light ribbon of color is displayed across the sky in an aurora.

    Ice crystal precipitation vary in shapes, intensity and size, but are found in cold regions around the world. "In the absence of supercooled liquid water, the growth of ice crystals to precipitation size is most likely dominated by aggregation of smaller ice crystals, which depends on the ice crystal number concentration and temperature (Hobbs et al. 1974) ," as you can see in the image below.
