5 Most MIND BLOWING Discoveries Found In The Forest!
While the world is filled with beautiful landscapes and huge bodies of water, one of the oldest and most unique habitats, that you can find almost anywhere on the planet, are forests.

Imagine riding your bicycle through a forest trail and coming across one of these – this is a wooden block with nails sticking out of it – or, a nail trap, designed to cause physical injury to either your transportation or your foot. Ouch! A cyclist was maneuvering through a forest path near Lampeter in South Wales when he discovered one of the blocks. What’s worse is that upon further investigation both the cyclist and the police discovered that there were messages on the bottoms of the blocks that read – ‘ha ha got you’ and ‘keep to the footpath’. Weird.
#4 Ancient Life
Recently a remarkable discovery was made in The Amazon rainforest. Archeologists uncovered 81 ancient settlements – that is, a place where people lived – that dated as far back as the year 1250! Evidence of human life was found when scientists canvased the area and gathered broken pottery, stone axes and buried heaps of trash. This discovery is remarkable in itself, but experts say that they expect to find hundreds more. Up to a million people could’ve occupied the undiscovered space in the Amazon rainforest, and deforestation – while it may not be the best thing for the environment – could lead to even more discoveries like this one.
#3 Big Trees
Next up on this list of mind blowing discoveries found in the forest may come as a bit of a surprise, because it’s actually a tree. But just hear me out, this isn’t your standard tree. These are the tallest tropical trees in the entire world. Scientists recently discovered that the tallest Meranti Kuning Siput tree is over 94.1 meters – or over 300 feet – up in the air. The tree is found in Malaysia, home to some of the world’s oldest forests – some dating back as far as 130 million years. Yes, 130 million! The forests are so old that they’re also home to a couple other very large things – including Chan’s megastick bug – which is officially the second longest insect in the world – along with trafflesia arnoldii, the world’s largest flower.
#2 Exploding Ants
So how many of you would give your life for your community? That’s exactly what one species of bug does in the forests of some Southeast Asian treetops. Malaysian exploding ants have an extremely unique defense mechanism – when they feel threated that have the ability to self-detonate – literally explode their body and killing itself – all the while spraying out a yellow glue that is lethal to other ants and small insects, but harmless to humans. Researchers say that there are up to 15 different species of this type of ant, but that some older information could be faulty as they continue to discern what’s truly accurate with this unique ant species.
#1 Big Cat
As the Scottish wildcast conservation project was in operation in Scotland, video of what’s being called the largest wildcat ever seen was taken. Watch as this absolutely monstrous wildcat – which is estimated to be 4 feet long – climbs down this log. Kev Bell, one of the field workers on the project, stated that he’s seen between 10 and 15 of those cats – called the Clashindarroch Beast – during the course of his observations. These are some of the rarest animals in the world, and normal sized wildcats come in at an average of just 2 feet long. And that is today’s list! Thanks for watching today's video.
