Natural environments are subject to weather, location, height, if water is nearby and what kind of water this is the neighboring environment, and so much more. These factors affect what plant species can grow in an area. And these, in their turn, affect what animals can live in that specific area. Taking all the other factors into account. Evolution is a way to make sure that species can keep surviving. It’s a process of elimination. If you can’t keep up with changes, or your new evolutionary trait is useless, it, or you, will likely die out.
Living species are an archive of organisms that are alive today. There are millions upon millions different species out there, ready to be used in your character or creature design.
Bio-luminescence is a magically beautiful phenomenon that’s for many people a rarity to see. Bio-luminescence is an emission of light from an organism, that emits this light for its survival and/or reproduction. It’s a biochemical mechanism that involves a chemical process, resulting in a cold light. Instead of it creating heat, the reaction will create light instead.
Although bio-luminescence is rarely seen, it’s fairly common. Both on land and in the ocean. However, these events take place around specific times of the year, making it hard to actually seek them out. Also, a lot of bio-luminescent organisms have a relatively faint light. This means they can only be seen at night when no flashlights are used, or light pollution is nearby. Nonetheless, it’s an absolutely wonderful phenomenon and worth it to seek out when you have the chance!
If you think legends and myths are stories from the past, you are mistaken. The Chupacabra is excellent proof of a modern-day legend. It’s a legend from Latin America and the southern US states that came to life after animals like sheep, goats, and even dogs were found bloodless and with very few wounds. The explanation of these events became the Chupacabra.
