    Certainly not beautiful, but interesting...



    Quote The wrap-around spider (Dolophones pilosa)

    is a species of spider in the family Araneidae indigenous to Australia. It is named for its ability to flatten and wrap its body around tree limbs as camouflage. It is found in Western Australia along with several other species from the genus Dolophones, and was first described in 1886.

    Bill is also right, the Region is called Zhangjiajie. Zhangjiajie was used as inspiration for the flying Mountains in the movie Avatar.

    Octopus: Aliens of the Deep Sea
    https://forbiddenknowledgetv.net/oct...-the-deep-sea/
    6/28/18
    "OK. We're sick of politics. I, for one can never get sick of The Octopus – and by that, I don't mean the "vast, interlocking network of criminal conspiracy that reaches into every branch and agency of the US government, many other national governments, and every sector of our societies," as the late (suicided) Danny Casolaro, investigative journalist called it.

    I mean the large mollusks capable of abstract thinking but whose short lifespans range from 5 years and 6 months.

    From Spain to Vancouver Island and finally to Capri, Italy, this film follows scientists as they try to understand how the octopus has evolved to have such intelligence, even by our bone-headed human standards.

    Running Time: 45 min

    The President tree is the name of a giant sequoia located in the Giant Forest of Sequoia National Park in the United States, east of Visalia, California. It is not the tallest giant sequoia tree in the world with a height of about 247 feet (75 m), nor the widest at about 27 feet (8.2 m) in diameter at the base, but it is the second-largest tree in the world, measured by volume of trunk, and the oldest-known living sequoia, about 3,200 years old.
