Nyala bulls (Tragelaphus angasii), southern Africa
I did not realize these creatures were real and I really, really like them.
I love Nyala they’re like punk rock antelopes with their back Mohawks
Also when they notice a potential competitor or threat they freeze up and puff out as much as they can before walking in stiff slow motion towards it in an attempt to show dominance it’s the most adorable goofy thing
This 144-Year-Old Wisteria In Japan Looks Like A Pink Sky
These stunning photographs, which look like a glorious late evening sky with dashes of pink and purple, are actually pictures of Japan’s largest wisteria (or wistaria, depending on whom you ask) plant.
This plant, located in Ashikaga Flower Park in Japan, is certainly not the largest in the world, but it still comes in at an impressive 1,990 square meters (or half an acre) and dates back to around 1870 (the largest, at about 4,000 square meters, is the wisteria vine in Sierra Madre, California). Although wisterias can look like trees, they’re actually vines. Because its vines have the potential to get very heavy, this plant’s entire structure is held up on steel supports, allowing visitors to walk below its canopy and bask in the pink and purple light cast by its beautiful hanging blossoms.
