Pictures Worth More Than 1000 Words (30 images)

Another week, another dose of inspiration for all who need it. Because some pictures are just impossible to describe in anything less than 1000 words, and so looking at them has our imagination running wild and our creativity exploding. They make us wanna write, they make us wanna paint, and they definitely make us want to go pet a cheetah.

So, enjoy this week's collection of inspiring animals and go write that novel you've been putting off writing. Just make sure that you have at least one animal in that novel - possibly a cheetah because why not - and that that animal gets snacks and pets and all the love in the world.

Platypuses Glow Under Blacklight For Some Unknown Reason

This is so cool and so incredibly random! It turns out, if you were to place a platypus under a blacklight, they would glow! What other amazing secrets are these creatures hiding from us?

Noted in the journal Mammalia, "shining an ultraviolet light on a platypus makes the animal's fur fluoresce with a greenish-blue tint. They're one of the few mammals known to exhibit this trait. And we're still in the dark about why they do it — if there is a reason at all."

Other animals that have exhibited this interesting trait are scorpions, lichens, puffin beaks, and believe it or not, North American flying squirrels glow bubble pink under UV light. Blue light, just a notch away from ultraviolet, turns our oceans into what looks like an indoor mini-golf course! It's also what causes multiple types of amphibians to glow green. 

Nature is lit.

Box-Loving Cats Getting Entire Castles Made Of Boxes

All cats love boxes, big and small, we know it, all cat owners know it. And yet, we still decide sometimes that we need to treat our cats, get them something fancy, something that they'll absolutely adore. So, we invest, and we buy the biggest, best cat jungle gym we can find, thinking that our kitties would love it like nothing else, only to then... have the kitties love the boxes the jungle gyms came in instead.

Ah, cats and their insanely weird fascination with boxes. It's true what they say though, gifts that are heavy with thought and good intentions are even better than expensive gifts sometimes. So, the best solution to the jungle gym box debacle is just... to make a jungle gym out of boxes. Not too expensive, strangely cool, costume design made especially for your cat, and there's basically a guarantee of your cat loving it!

Most Pawerful Cat Squads No One Should Mess With

There isn't anyone cooler and more intimidating than a cat squad. There's power in one cat, but put a few of those cats together, and oh boy, you're in trouble. Cats are just... weirdly gangster and intimidating sometimes. You know, when they're not being the most adorable, fluffy, wholesome creatures who like to headbutt as a sign of love

All the other times, they're cool, calm, and collected. It's true, sometimes people confuse certain cat behaviors as "mean" or "evil" because they simply don't understand cats. But even those of us who do understand them can totally admit that they can be intimidating when they're about to pounce - intimidating in a funny way that is wholesome no matter how hard they try to spook us.

2,000-Year-Old Cat Discovered Etched Among Nazca Lines In Peru

Cats were as important 2,000 years ago as they are today! Important enough to be etched into the desert among the Nazca lines in Peru. 

In the dun sands of Southern Peru, lays the Nazca lines, hundreds of geometric and zoomorphic images. Figured etched centuries ago with geoglyphs of an orca, what some believe to be an astronaut, a monkey, and a hummingbird. These figures are said to be dated between 200BC and 100BC. And just recently, a new figure has been discovered - the feline. 

An enormous cat Nazca line emerged while officials worked to improve access to one of the hills that would provide a wonderful and natural vantage point, in which a handful of the designs could be seen. 

Peru's culture ministry said in a statement, "The figure was scarcely visible and was about to disappear because it's situated on quite a steep slope that's prone to the effects of natural erosion. Over the past week, the geoglyph was cleaned and conserved, and shows a feline figure in profile, with its head facing the front." 

The new feline discovery is said to be 37meters long.

Johny Isla, Peru's chief archaeologist for the lines, told the Spanish news agency Efe, "It's quite striking that we're still finding new figures, but we also know that there are more to be found."

Isla continues, "Over the past few years, the use of drones has allowed us to take images of hillsides."

Man Builds Squirrel Bar Complete With 7 Varieties Of Nuts On Tap

OK, this is adorable. 

Michael Dutko, an Ohio woodworker, has just created the cutest and coolest squirrel bar we've ever seen. "The Nutty Bar" features seven different types of nuts named after beers: Cashew Dunkel, Peanut Pilsner, Almond Ale, Walnut Stout, Sunflower Saison, Pecan Porter and Pistachio Pale Ale.

We're not even squirrels and we would like to attend this bar! 

Dutko explained to CNN how he thought of the awesome project, "The whole reason I even started to make this is because my neighbor bird watches with her daughter and told me all of the squirrels keep getting in her way. I didn't even tell her what I was going to do, I just built it and put it back there and when she saw it, she just started cracking up."

Not only is there the bar, but quirky signs bathroom signs that read, "Nuts" and "No Nuts." How fun is that? 

The overall process took Dutko 8 hours to complete and measures to be about 25in wide and 16in tall. After sharing a video of the process on YouTube, Dutko became flooded with users who requested to purchase the bar. He immediately went to go get his idea patented and now planning on launching a business doing what he loves!  

"It's surreal to me that I was able to make such an impact by doing something so little with something I love so much. I'm so amazed. People have been so kind and positive. And my kids definitely love it too, they're always watching the squirrels stuff their faces with nuts and they think it's just so cute."
