10 Crazy Natural Mysteries From Australia



Botanical Dinosaur

Even though there’s no way to actually see living dinosaurs, botanical equivalent of living dinosaurs were found in 1994. It, of course, happened in Australia. The Jurassic survivor was a grove of trees representing the last of their kind: the Wollemi pine. The botanical dinosaurs are so old they’ve survived 17 ice ages.

Alpha’s Death

A huge shark in Australian waters called the Alpha shark was tagged by a satellite in order for scientists to figure out more about the rare species. What happened not long after surprised everyone. The shark was eaten by something but nobody knows what, as sharks don’t have natural enemies. Some actually refer to the mysterious animal as a monster.
