Nature has proved to be the best creative artist there ever is. The art can be seen in all the different creatures that co-exist on this planet. Some are immensely colorful, some have made some exceptional adaptations, and some may have some weird looks.
These remarkable creatures and our planet’s biodiversity need to be celebrated instead of killing them out of fear.
