We truly do live in a wonderous world full of medical marvels and nature's miracles! But with the distractions of fake news and social media and the general 'unsteady' times that we're living in at the moment, we do tend to forget all this!

People barely have time to stop and smell the roses these days, never mind think to open those roses to see what's inside!

But you'd be suprised at what you'd find if you took a look inside some things that you wouldn't normally think twice about!

So, as usual, that's where we come in! We're bringing you 20 rare photos that show the unseen side of things that are all around us and it's wonderous!

1. This Is What A Cleaned Heart Looks Like

This is called a ghost heart and it is obtained by washing away all donor cells until you're left with a protein scaffold. This ghost heart is ready to be injected with the transplant recipient's stem cells so a new heart (one that won't be rejected by them) can be grown. Isn't it wonderful what medical science can do these days!? I didn't even know it was possible to 'clean' a heart! Does it work for heartbreak, I wonder!?

2. The Giant Heads Of Easter Island Do Have Bodies

"The reason people think they are heads is there are about 150 statues buried up to the shoulders on the slope of a volcano, and these are the most famous, most beautiful and most photographed of all the Easter Island statues,"

Suprise! Yes, they're not just huge heads! They do actually have bodies!

explains Van Tilburg, who is a fellow at the Cotsen Institute of Archaeology at the University of California, Los Angeles.

3. This Is What A Baby Flamingo Looks Like

I've always wondered why we never see baby Pigeons, but I'm happy enough with seeing this cutie! This is so adorable!

Baby Flemingos are fed a bright red milk made from their parents' upper digestive tracts. As they grow up, they begin to develop their characteristic pink feathers, so that's why this little guy isn't pink yet!

4. Grains Of Salt Under Electron Microscope

Doctor Who!

5. Aurora Of Different Planets

"Aurora's are breathtaking cosmic light displays that can be seen from various planets in our solar system. An aurora is the finale to a process that begins with the sun. The sun emits a constant stream of charged particles or solar wind into the solar sy

Did you know that other planets as well as our Earth could have Auroras!? I didn't until now! I think Jupiter's Aurora is particularly stunning! Everything about this universe never fails to amaze me!

6. Large Ice Crystals In Switzerland

"In the absence of supercooled liquid water, the growth of ice crystals to precipitation size is most likely dominated by aggregation of smaller ice crystals, which depends on the ice crystal number concentration and temperature (Hobbs et al. 1974.)"

How unbelievable and beautiful is this!? It doesn't even seem possible that something so complex and amazing could form all on it's own, does it!? (Well, with a little help from nature, of course!)

7. This Is An Intact Human Nervous System

"In 1925 two medical students in Kirksville, Missouri were challenged to dissect a cadaver's nervous system, starting from the brain downward, but leaving the entire system in one piece. The process took the students - M.A. Schalck and L.P. Ramsdell-over

Yeah, I know what you're thinking...THAT's what's inside of us!? Gross but amazing, right!?

8. This Is What A Tiger's Skin Looks Like When It's Shaved

"Interestingly, the skin of the tiger is also striped beneath the patterned fur," saysTigers.org. "The darkness of the pigmentation of the skin seems to be directly related to the darkness of the fur."

This doesn't suprise me actually, I'm not sure why, but I guess I always thought it would be the same for Zebras too, if they had fur that is! It makes sens that the skin would be striped too!

9. You Can See Every Organ In The Glass Frog

"Reticulated glass frogs are found in the rain forests of Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia, and Ecuador. The skin on their underside is completely transparent which allows for you to see their internal organs and even their beating heart."

WOW. He looks like a little ornament that you'd have on your mantlepiece, doesn't he!? There's no way I'd be able to hold him, I'd be too terrified of hurting him!

10. This Globe For Blind People

"In 1830 an engineer and craftsman by the name of Stephen Preston Ruggles took on a project for the print shop at Perkins School for the Blind, in Watertown, Massachusetts. He created a map of Boston with the streets, roads, bridges and squares marked wit

Just because your blind, doesn't mean that you can't travel the world! Or feel your way around it, thanks to this wonderful adapted globe!

11. An Agate Shell. Minerals Have Grown In The Voids Of The Shell And Eventually Replaced The Shell Too

How gorgeous are these!? I'd totally want one of my own... and if you do too, you'll be happy to hear that they aren't actually that rare and often end up in people's private collections...but that doesn't lower their beauty one bit!

12. Here's What An Albino Raccoon Looks Like

"Raccoons are known for their bandit black and white look, which is what makes this albino creature an anomaly. Unlike their friends, albino raccoons lack any sort of camouflage which makes hiding from predators difficult and thus their lifespan shorter."

Oh my word, WHERE can I acquire one of these!? I'll give you as much money as you require! He's so adorable!

Bless! I'll look after him!

13. The Dark Side Of The Moon Passing In Front Of The Earth, Captured From One Million Miles Away

"A NASA camera aboard the Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) has captured a unique view of the Moon as it passed between the spacecraft and Earth. A series of test images shows the fully illuminated “dark side” of the Moon that is n

It really does make you realise how small and insignificant you are when you see stuff like this, doesn't it!?

14. Some 5-Pointed Starfish Can Be Squared Due To Birth Defects

I wouldn't class this as a defect, if you asked me! Look how stunning and adorable (squared) he is! He looks like a little, magical Eygptian artifect! Or a cute little biscuit!

15. What's Under A Reporter's Back: "Our Job Is So Glamorous"

Wow, that must be really uncomfortable! But at least it's hidden and she still looks totally glamorous, even if she may not feel like it! Either that or robots are looking more and more real by the day!

16. What Thousands Of Years Look Like In One Photo (Dun Briste Sea Stack, Downpatrick Head, Co. Mayo, Ireland)

"In 1980 three scientists landed on the summit by helicopter and spent a couple of hours examining the remains of the buildings and plant life still surviving there. They discovered the remains of a building running across the centre of the headland with

This seastack, which is located in 50 metres off the north Mayo coast at Downpatrick Head, holds the keys and memories to a long past... including livestock, houses and the land that have lived there over an immense period of time! It absolutely blows my mind!

17. Snow Covered Net Roof Of The Aviary In The Zoo

Oh my word, this is possibly one of the most magical and stunning photographs that I have ever seen! How cozy would it be to be under this!? You'd feel like you were in your own HUGE igloo! Or magical Kingdom!

18. Giant Amethyst Geode

"Geodes are hollow rocks that contain inward-facing crystals that are formed by numerous different processes, namely a slow flow of mineral material into pockets of air within rocks."

It's a good job that I'm not around this stunning thing on a daily basis, as I'd just want to climb it and sit in it! Which probably wouldn't be a good idea for many reasons!

19. Processed Image Of An Actual Virus Via Electron Microscope

Ew, I don't want that thing ANYWHERE near me! My immune system is so sh@te, it would definitely get me! I wonder if it's as nasty as it looks!? THIS IS WHY WE HAVE VACCINATIONS, PEOPLE!

20. Microbes Left Behind From The Handprint Of An 8-Year-Old Boy After Playing Outside

Oh....lovely! Remind me to never go near a child ever again!


Seriously though, before you freak out and burn your children, we need to remember that most germs won't harm us. Our immune system protects us against most of these nasties and growing up in a 'natural' environment always helps kids develop a balanced immune response, which is definitely a good thing! So always let them go and play in the mud!
