10 Steaming Facts You Need To Know About Volcanoes

Volcanoes are truly terrifying acts of Mother Nature. When they explode, you can bet the world around them is going to burn to the ground with vengeance and fury. When a volcano erupts, the world around it shakes and trembles, animals run for cover, and human beings escape to the furthest regions when they can. Those who are not capable of leaving, sadly, are consumed by the flames and left for dead. Most people do not know a lot about volcanoes, despite how strong and devastating they are. Here are ten steaming facts you need to know about volcanoes.

Volcano Birds

Not every animal on the planet considers a volcano to be a source of complete death. The Maleo – a strange bird that depends upon volcanoes to survive – incubates its eggs within the geothermal energy of the volcano.

Black Lava Volcano

A Black Lava Volcano is quite rare. Today, there is only one known for producing pitch black lava: Ol Doinyo Lengai. The volcano is located in Tanzania, and actually has far cooler lava than most eruptions. The black lava is only around 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit.
