It's very likely that you have heard of the dinosaurs that once roamed our very own planet Earth. Maybe you've seen depictions of a T-Rex in movies, or at a theme park you visited. However, you probably don't have a remnant of one of these ancient creatures in your house, just lying around...


I don't know if you've heard of, or, should I say, heard brood X cicadas so far this year. I had no considerable knowledge of them at all until they literally arrived at my doorstep! Brood X (the Roman numeral for 10) is a generation of cicadas that only emerge once every 17 years...


If you like mountains, oceans, caves, or rivers, Taroko Gorge National Park in Hualien, Taiwan, is definitely a place that you'll want to visit. The national park's namesake was created by the flowing waters of the Liwu river. Today, the waters are still flowing, clear and strong as ever...

My family and I went to Joshua Tree National Park in California in June of 2018. The purpose of that trip was to visit my cousins who had moved there three years prior. We had a large family reunion, with grandparents from both sides...


Chubby Squirrel has been to a lot of places, but not nearly as many as his mother. Mother squirrel has been far and wide, from taking a helicopter to the top of Mount Everest to riding in (another) helicopter over the Great Barrier Reef...

More likely than not, you have heard of or at least seen a Betta fish before. Also called Siamese Fighting Fish, Their name suggests their aggressive nature, especially the males. They will fight most other fish, so you may want to keep them in a tank...


You might have read the article on my camping trip last year to Cape Henlopen State Park in Delaware. Well, I liked it so much that I went again this year, except this time with the company of my family and my friend's family. We booked...
