It's weird to think there are creatures and animals on this Earth that we may have never seen before. But honestly, it's sso very likely that you don't know all the living on this mysterious planet. There's no way to really know because some creatures (such as in the deep blue ocean) have YET to be discovered! 

So, the idea of there being living things we haven't seen before isn't so far fetched. Yet, it's always surprising when you see a land animal for the first time. We've never heard of a humphead parrotfish or a worm-eating giant snail before. Amazing how much there is to learn and to see, it's never-ending.

While humans are stuck inside, the animals will play! That's right! Animals are reclaiming (or just roaming around freely) the Earth. Thanks to humans being cooped up inside, animals are able to wander more freely and into territories that were more occupied by humans. 

And as it turns out... Earth has been thriving without us!

If you're ever feeling overwhelmed, or going through something that seems too big to handle, sometimes it's good to be reminded of our place in the universe. Earth may seem huge, but in reality, it's just a tiny speck in the Milky Way. Which itself is a speck amongst millions of other galaxies. These pictures show just how small Earth really is, not only compared to the other planets, but also the rest of the universe.
