Random Thursday: A random fact that blew my mind

There are lots of mind-blowing facts out there, but I’m always amazed when I read the numbers on the amount of undiscovered species of plants and animals in the world. I’ve read studies that estimate just a small fraction of species have been discovered and cataloged, with millions and millions of species yet to be discovered and no real grasp of the total number still out there. And what’s worse, human destruction of natural habitats means that thousands (if not millions) of species of plants, animals, insects and more could die off before we have a chance to make that discovery. It’s mind-blowing and frankly pretty sad.
