OSTRICH offers a micro environment in which to take a warm and comfortable power nap at ease. It is neither a pillow nor a cushion, nor a bed, nor a garment, but a bit of each at the same time. Its soothing cave-like interior shelters and isolates our head and hands (mind, senses and body) for a few minutes, without needing to leave our desk.
Among the many weird and fascinating amphibians on our planet, very special are the Glass Frogs. This amazing frog family has a transparent skin, allowing you to view inside its small body. They are so transparent that it almost looks as if they melt into the leaves and become one with them.
Glass frogs live in and among the trees and plants of humid mountain forests in Central and South America. Higher up the mountain the rain forests are called cloud forests because the trees are almost always covered in clouds. Glass frogs are mostly active at night, which makes them very difficult to spot for predators.
Goeff Mackley descended 400 meters into the Marum, an active volcano on Ambrym Island in the Pacific ocean, and stood just a few meters from a massive lava pool. He and Bradley Ambrose, who filmed the video below, were apparently the first people to ever get this close. About the experience, Geoff wrote:
“Climbing down to within 30 metres of the lava it was so hot (1150 degrees) that without protection we could stand the heat for 6 seconds before retreating, with heat suit and BA I was able to stand it for 40 minutes.”
