If we asked you about the natural colors of the things that surround us, you’d probably say green for a grasshopper, yellow and black for a bee, and red for a watermelon. And now imagine a world where watermelons can be white, bees can be blue, grasshoppers can be purple, and, on top of that, we also have purple potatoes, black squirrels, and blue slugs. It may sound like the world from a fantasy novel, but it’s the reality we live in, and if you’ve never seen these wonders, we’ll show you proof.
Here we’ve selected 18 pics for you that show what happens when nature gets creative and picks exotic colors for animals and plants, and we hope they please your eyes and stir your imagination.
