“Natural fractals — irregular, self-similar geometry — occur virtually everywhere in nature: in coastlines and riverways, in snowflakes and leaf veins, even in our own lungs. In recent years, physicists have found that people invariably prefer a certain mathematical density of fractals — not too thick, not too sparse. The theory is that this particular pattern echoes the shapes of trees, specifically the acacia, on the African savanna, the place stored in our genetic memory from the cradle of the human race. To paraphrase one biologist, beauty is in the genes of the beholder — home is where the genome is.”

Long-beaked Blindsnake (Ramphotyphlops grypus)

Found across both arid and semi-arid parts, as well as forested areas, of Northern Australia. These snakes are often associated with termite mounds, as termites and their eggs are the majority of their diet. They may also be found in leaf litter and under rotting logs, where termites occur. They are believed to be oviparous (egg laying).
