Finland Is Officially The Best Country For Wildlife Travel

Finland has been named the best country in the world for wildlife travel by the True Luxury Travel's Global Wildlife Index 2019. The factors that made it win against it's 106 competitors included its "high levels of environmental sustainability, its unique and varied diversity of species, beautiful natural landscapes, and conservation efforts". Honestly, this is no surprise as Finlandis home to a number of animals that I, the author, have never seen in my life (and would love to see). Besides, 69% of the country is forest and the rest is filled with crystal clear lakes and quaint towns. Sounds pretty ideal to me. 

To show you just how diverse Finland's wildlife is, we've included 15 of the coolest animals that call Finland home. If you visit Finland, you're bound to see a few of these creatures. I'd be pretty happy if I saw one, to be honest!

Ghost Crabs Use Teeth In Their Stomachs To Growl

In science news this week: ghost crabs growl. Yep. Weird, right? Although they aren't the most formidable of creatures (although I'm sure many people would disagree with me there), ghost crabs have the bonus of having decent claws AND a (cute) growl. If I were 2 inches tall, I would be terrified.
