SPOILER ALERT!!! Watch the video for a more informative and entertaining experience, though there is a list of the 10 below for your convenience:
➢ 10. Mount Mabu This is a mountain located in the northern part of Mozambique and is home to an old-growth rainforest. Since its discovery, the forest of Mount Mabu has been found to hold many creatures and plants that were previously unknown to the world.
➢9. Sima Humboldt This enormous sinkhole is located on a plateau at the summit of a flat-topped mountain. It is rare for expedition crews to descend into the sinkhole because a special permit from the government is required, which why not much is known about what lies at the bottom of the sinkhole.
➢8. Palawan Highlands Some consider this the Philippines last ecological frontier harbouring vast tracts of tropical rainforests and an expanse of marine wilderness. The province of Palawan, Locked away from the mainland, has many flora and fauna that is unlike anything found on the Philippines, and in fact a large number of these plants cannot be found anywhere else in the world.
➢7. Mount Bosavi Crater This crater belongs to an extinct volcano and is so inaccessible that even the locals rarely enter the area, let alone descend into the crater itself. The crater has, over the years, developed its own ecosystem of sorts and expeditions to the crater have reported a sudden change in both the atmosphere and environment upon descending into the crater.
➢6. Socotra Island If you ever feel like visiting a completely different planet then look no further. Located in Yemen, this island has been isolated from mainland Africa for the last 6 or 7 million years. Because of this long period of isolation, the island is home to about 700 extremely rare species, one third of which are endemic, meaning that they can only be found here.
➢5. Movile Cave Located in Romania, Movile Cave is notable for having a unique groundwater ecosystem. Very few have been granted access to this cave system, and those that have tell of an unbelievable experience.
➢4. Mount Roraima Lying atop of the Guiana Shield in the southeastern corner of Venezuela’s Canaima National Park,this mountain is awe inspiring due to its steep sides that make it stand out from the surrounding area and look like a giant block has been placed by God himself.
➢3. Challenger Deep This is the deepest known point in the Earths seabed located in the Pacific Ocean. Only 3 people have ever been here, and the extreme conditions of this environment means that some pretty fascinating creatures live down here. Who knows what we might find here in a few years.
➢2. Hang Sơn Đoòng Cave Located in Vietnam and currently the largest cave in the world by volume, Son Doong Cave is an amazing creation of nature. The sheer size of the cave has caused it to develop its own ecosystem with and inner forest and a large flowing river within it, which gives the impression of entering a whole new world. It's truly a treasure trove of geological discoveries and a Haven for adventure seekers.
➢1. Lake Vostok Located at the southern Pole of cold, and hidden beneath almost 4KM of ice, lies Lake Vostok , Antarctica’s largest subglacial lake. The lake water has been sealed off under the ice sheet 15 million years ago, and remained untouched until 2013, when scientists drilled into the ice sheet exposing the water hidden below. The lake has a very high chance of having preserved creatures we thought were long gone in the early years of the Earth. In years to come we might find a way to get down there and explore a world humans have never seen before.

10 Unbelievable Creatures Found After Tsunamis ► Subscribe: For copyright matters please contact us at: miniminter1992. 29@gmail ################################ ► Website: ► Facebook: ► Twitter: ► Google +: ################################ Shore is strange… at least sometimes, and usually after a storm. Beachcombers often can't believe their eyes (or noses) when encountering some of Neptune's more notable washed-up castoffs and even scientists can be befuddled on first impression. Like most UFO's, there's always an explanation for the apparently unexplainable… it's up to you, however, if you choose to believe it. The Kivalina Strain The remote native community of Kivalina on the Chukchi Sea shore in northwestern Alaska isn't the first place one might expect an alien invasion but on August 3rd, 2011, that's exactly what happened. Storm Sturgeon Something was fishy about the so-called "nightmarish Lovecraftian sea monster" that washed ashore on South Carolina's Folly Beach in March of 2012, or maybe that was just the aroma carried by the sea breeze. Montauk Monster No list of washed-up creatures would be complete without mention of the first Montauk Monster. Reports of the ferocious-looking carcass originated from far-eastern Long Island, New York, in July of 2008 and exploded onto the Internet shortly thereafter. Headless creature This subject is a headless creature 15 feet long, 10 feet of which form a tapering tail. Officials of Canada's Department of Fisheries and Oceans haven't disclosed the nature of the creature that washed ashore in February of 2010. Opah That's "Opah" and although this big beached beauty may look somewhat satanic the lower reaches it hails from aren't hellish in the least. Mysterious Blob Not much happens in Temuka, a town of just over 4, 000 located on the eastern coast of New Zealand's South Island, but all that changed on October 28th, 2009 when the aliens landed… Purple Storm Snails Purple Storm Snails are rarely seen anywhere BUT washed up on a beach. These exquisitely beautiful gastropods have paper-thin shells and blow "bubble rafts" of transparent chitin to keep them afloat on the ocean's surface. Monster from Russia This creature was found by soldiers stationed on Russia's far-eastern island territory of Sakhalin in 2006. Sakhalin, by the way, is about 5, 000 miles east of Moscow. Once the story broke, Russian Special Service personnel quickly removed the remains from the beach "for in-depth studies" Bigfoot Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water… it IS safe in the water, just stay off the beach! OK, the only danger posed by the toothy creation above is potentially stubbing one's toe on it. And by "creation", we don't mean it in the biblical sense. Salish Sea Human Foot Discoveries The thrill of victory and the agony of the feet, the latter of which were washing ashore along the Canadian and American Pacific northwest coast so often authorities were wondering what in the wide world of sports was going on! Just whose feet were they – and where were the rest of the bodies? So, are you up for a nice, peaceful walk on the beach or does the possibility of stumbling across something unexpected make you want to wave it off? One thing you should know: from whales to snails and fish to feet, things washed up on the shore have all seen better days, so stowaway your fears and enjoy nature's bounty! Thank you for watching!
