Seriously. When I came across this picture a couple of days ago, I had to do a double-take. Did scientists unearth the skulls of miniature humans that lived millions of years ago? Or was this just a photoshopped image?
This was cause for a little research of my own which led to the discovery that these grizzly shrunken skulls are in fact (drum roll please) snapdragon seed pods. Here they are actually growing on a stalk (the “skulls” grow facing up).
Who’d have thought these flowers would have such weird seed pods? Looks like Mother Nature has a playful side.
