Everyday Things That Look Extraordinary When You Look At Them In Ways You Have Never Seen Them Before
On 23rd April 2018
You might think you have seen it all but let me tell you, you haven't. There will always be something out there to surprise you. Even seemingly mundane items hold secrets that can shock and amaze you. Don't believe me? Well, check out these stunning objects.
#1 A white raven.
You're all probably familiar with the solid blackness of the common raven but have you ever seen a solid white raven? Like most other species on earth, ravens can be afflicted with albinism. Pretty stunning right?
#2 What did you expect inside that lemon?
Most people never actually peel a lemon so seeing one peeled for the first time can seem a little odd. That said, there is little difference in appearance between a peeled lemon and peeled orange outside of the color.
#3 Now this is bizarre looking.
Have you ever seen a multicolored pepper? Well, you have now. This one was mutated causing one side to appear normal while the other side is completely white. Taste wise there is no difference.
#4 What happened to all your hair?
This cute little fella is a hairless guinea pig. Idk about you but having owned a guinea pig or two in my life, having a hairless one would be a dream. All the cute cuddliness without the hair getting all over everything.
#5 Not what I expected.
This is the inside of a grenade. Not at all what I expected it to look like. I couldn't even begin to explain what all these parts do but you have to admit there is a certain artistic harmony to it all, you know... when it's not blowing up.
#6 Why so black?
These are Chinese black chickens. They are said to be really tasty but I will never know because I wouldn't be caught dead eating one. Would you be brave enough to give it a try?
#7 A white cockroach.
No, it's not an albino roach. Roaches spend at least a few hours of their lives appearing completely white. This is due to their molting. Once they shed the previous layer it takes a few hours for their color to return. It's not a rare occurrence at all they just are rarely seen because when they molt they are at risk of drying out so they stay hidden until their new layer has hardened.
#8 How violet of you.
Have you ever seen a violet potato? There are thousands of different kinds of potatoes that come in all different colors. These particular potatoes are from Peru. Would you eat one?
