The Scavenger of the South
Keas (Nestor notabilis) are an endangered parrot species native to the southern alpine regions of New Zealand. Named by the Maori people for its distinctive kea cry, the parrots are predominantly green and black, with striking orange and yellow underwings. They’re a highly adaptive species and are considered to be one of the most intelligent bird species in the world, with the equivalent intelligence of a three-year-old child. Their lineage is thought to have diverged from other parrots approximately 80 million years ago when Zealandia split from Gondwanaland, and to scout out food to survive in their harsh alpine environment, keas developed a highly inquisitive nature—which today often makes them nuisances to nearby humans, because the parrots are also mischievous and opportunistic, and never turn down the chance to supplement their mostly-vegetarian diet with human food. They eat nearly anything, so no item of food is safe in their territory—keas are smart and daring enough to pluck it clean out of your hands. Their nature caused conflict with humans throughout the twentieth century: a bounty was introduced, and it’s thought that over 150,000 keas were culled, leaving only 1000–5000 in the wild today. They’re listed as an endangered species, also threatened by introduced pests, logging, scavenging harmful foods, and farmers who still illegally kill them to protect livestock.
With its unparalleled Gothic architecture, Sagrada Família is the most stunning Roman Catholic church in the world. Located in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain, the church has been under construction for over 160. Designed by Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí (1852–1926), the church is as yet unfinished. However, Sagrada Família was still designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site and in November 2010, Pope Benedict XVI consecrated and proclaimed it a minor basilica.
Combining Gothic and Art Nouveau forms, Gaudí devoted his last years to the project. At the time of his death in 1926, it was less than a quarter complete. Sagrada Família’s construction was interrupted again by the Spanish Civil War, only to resume slow progress for many decades. Construction passed the midpoint in 2010 with an anticipated completion date of 2026—the centennial of Gaudí’s death.
The church is composed of three major facades: the Passion facade, the Nativity facade and the Glory facade. Much of the ornate Nativity facade was completed by Gaudí himself. The Passion facade’s graphic nature and gaunt, tortured figures remain true to Gaudí’s original vision, meant to inspire fear and reverence.
The church’s interior is defined by incredible columns that reach majestically toward the ceiling. Gaudí’s plans called for 18 spires, as well as numerous towers, chapels, and portals. When built, the tallest spire, which symbolizes Jesus Christ, will secure Sagrada Família’s place as the world’s largest church building. Relished by the art community, one critic stated that the church is, “The most extraordinary personal interpretation of Gothic architecture since the Middle Ages.”

Scattered throughout Northern Japan around the Yamagata Prefecture are two dozen mummified Japanese monks known as Sokushinbutsu, who caused their own deaths by way of self-mummification. A successful mummification took upwards of ten years. It is believed that many hundreds of monks tried, but only about 20 such mummifications have been discovered to date.
The elaborate process started with three years of eating a special diet consisting only of nuts and seeds, while taking part in a regimen of rigorous physical activity that stripped them of their body fat. They then ate only bark and roots for another three years and began drinking a poisonous tea made from the sap of the Urushi tree, normally used to lacquer bowls.
This caused vomiting and a rapid loss of bodily fluids, and most importantly, it made the body too poisonous to be eaten by maggots. Finally, a self-mummifying monk would lock himself in a stone tomb barely larger than his body, where he would not move from the lotus position. His only connection to the outside world was an air tube and a bell. Each day he rang a bell to let those outside know that he was still alive.
When the bell stopped ringing, the tube was removed and the tomb sealed. After the tomb was sealed, the other monks in the temple would wait another three years, and open the tomb to see if the mummification was successful. If the monk had been successfully mummified, they were immediately seen as a Buddha and put in the temple for viewing. Usually, though, there was just a decomposed body.

An aerial view of the Brazilian island of Ilha de Queimada Grande is breathtaking. But looks can be deceiving. Also known as Snake Island or Island of Fear, its deadly residents are waiting to kill anything that steps foot on the island. If you were actually able to go there, you would always be within 3 feet of your death. Because for every square meter of land on the island, there is a very deadly, very poisonous snake called the Golden Lancehead.
Snake Island is about 90 miles off the coast of Brazil and is generally void of people. The Brazilian Navy has forbidden people from visiting there, except for a few scientists who must obtain special permits. The lancehead snakes on the island can grow anywhere between 1/2 to 2 meters long. The venom they inject in one bite is so powerful that it melts the flesh surrounding the bite and has enough poison to kill two men. With no enemies, the snakes have taken over the island. They mainly survive by feasting on migratory birds that use the island as a resting place.
