    Xylaria polymorpha mushroom - something you expect to see in video games rather than in the real world. It's a fungus also known as dead man's thinkers for its drastic look and for growing in the dark places on decayed leaves

    Always keep in mind that creatures from the animal kingdom are resourceful and keep your head up during trips, as you just might spot something admirable or utterly frightening.

    The traveling season is still upon us, so before going to the next hot spot take a look at these photos. These are the things that you could encounter in warm tropical waters or in the cool depths of a forest. Try not to be scared when you meet them at first  — and our photo gallery is here to prepare you for the wildest things in nature.
