Aptly called the “Most Alien-like Landscape in the World”, Socotra has many unnatural looking life-forms, a third of which are found nowhere else on earth. The image below is of a group of Dragon’s Blood trees, called so because of the deep red sap that pours out when the bark is punctured.

10. Slithering Stones, Death Valley, USA

An eerie sight on the Racetrack Playa in the Death Valley National Park are the long track marks seen behind huge rocks and boulders. This refers to a geological phenomenon where rocks move along the valley without any animal or human intervention. Nobody has actually seen the rocks move, but the groove marks indicate that they may travel as much as 800 m from their starting point.
