These Photos Might Seem Strange, But We Promise They All Have Very Good Explanations

Sometimes you come across an object or an animal in the wild and you think, “that can’t be right.” The photos on this list might evoke a similar reaction, however, we promise that there is a natural explanation for each and every weird occurrence. We pinky swear that there aren’t any supernatural forces at work here.

Keep reading to see some photos that might just spark your imagination. If you learn something while you’re imagining, well, then that’s just a bonus.

A Ball Of Bricks

This hunk of bricks and mortar was once a lot more angular, but after spending some time at sea, the waves really rounded it out.

Now it looks like a ball of bricks.

Cute Cucamelons

These cute little vegetables aren’t tiny watermelons. They are cucamelons and they taste like a cross between a cucumber and a lime.

They are tiny bitter cucumbers and we are in love with them.

Australian Chicken

This guy fried himself a chicken cutlet that looks exactly like the continent of Australia.

The chicken is impressive, but we’re also impressed that he has a map of Australia on hand for reference.

Sprouted Seeds

In case you forgot, birdseed is made up of actual seeds, and seeds have a tendency to sprout under the right conditions.

That’s what happened to this big bag of birdseed. Now it looks like grass!

I’ve Got The Whole World

This coffee stain looks a lot like a picture of a globe. I bet you couldn’t draw a more accurate globe with coffee if you tried.

It’s really kind of impressive.

A Tasty Skate Park

Just north of Seattle, there’s a skate park that looks like a skillet of bacon and eggs.

Yes, this was designed to look like breakfast on purpose. No, it is not a naturally occurring skillet.

The Biggest Pizza Money Can Buy

This is the biggest pizza that you can order in the United States.

It’s longer than a regular-sized man and it can feed a heck of a whole lot of people.

A Magical Toilet

There really isn’t anything special about this toilet in particular. The light around it made by the window in the room is pretty special, though.

Who wouldn’t want to do their business here?

A Surprise Cactus

It looks like a little cactus decided to grow out of this random pipe.

We’re not sure if this happened spontaneously, or if someone purposefully put the cactus in this spot. But it’s lovely either way!

Homegrown Vs. Store-Bought

One of these tomato slices was taken from a homegrown tomato. One was taken from a tomato that was bought at a regular grocery store.

Can you tell which is which?

Icy Cool

If you look closely at this guy’s hand, you can see that his veins spell out the word “icy.”

I bet now you’re checking your hand to see if you have any hidden vein words.

Different Sizes

It looks like these two Nike slides have the same size bands but different size treads. Well, that’s because one of them was left in the sun for two months.

Apparently, these things can shrink.

Facing The Wrong Way

Most plants will naturally bend towards the sun. This is called heliotropism. That’s what all of the sunflowers in this picture are doing.

Except for the one in the front. That one is facing the wrong way for some reason. Rebel!

Too Many Bite Marks

These fake apples on display at Ikea have way too many bite marks on them.

Do you think all of those people actually thought that these were real red delicious apples?

Termites Love Books

We know that termites will chew their way through pretty much anything made of wood, and it looks like books aren’t safe from their wrath either.

I guess they aren’t really into reading.

Growing In The Bathroom

This person found a mushroom growing out of their bathroom wall.

I guess it gets kind of moist and dark in there, making it the perfect environment for fungi growth.
