Do you know enough about the Amazon Rainforest?! Well believe it or not, but the Amazon happens to have a ton of mysteries surrounding it that are still stumping the world to this day. Since 20% of the world’s oxygen is produced in the Amazon, it has been an important place for studies and exploring. While we do know a lot about the Amazon there is still so much that remains questionable. You’ll be blown away when you find out about the boiling river that flows through the Amazon or the water lily’s that can hold up an average person’s weight!
20. Walking Palm Trees
Did you know that the Amazon Rainforest actually has palm trees that can walk? However, there’s no need to worry about being chased down by a tree in the rainforest as they move incredibly slow. It seems that the trees move because of new roots that are being pulled in the direction of the sun. Thus, this replaces the old roots and the trees move…but quite slowly!
