Day 177


This is what the world looked like 130 million years ago...

You travel back in time 130 million years when you are in Australia's Daintree Rainforest—the oldest continually surviving tropical rainforest. The forest’s continuous rainfall and humid climate is ideal for ancient plant and animal life, which are millions of years older than the Amazon. Among them is the idiot fruit one of the world’s rarest and most primitive of all flowering plants.
