Dinosaurs in the World's Largest Desert:
About 250 Million years ago the dinosaurs lived in the Gobi desert. 
Since dinosaur fossils began to be found here in 1921 the Gobi has attracted many people, specially archaeological experts.
The dinosaurs disappeared from The Gobi 60 Million years ago. The sandstorms and avalanches finish them off, but we can get some idea what they were like by visiting the Natural History museum in Ulan Bator.

Orangutan Facts:
The forest where the man-ape legend born. Dayak natives called it "orang-hutan" meaning "man of the forest".

Way of Life of Maasai Tribe:
The Maasai are an African tribe living in southern Kenya. The Maasai love and care for their livestock. 
Maasai women perform multiple tasks but they also have time to get pretty. 

Southern right whales
The southern right whales come every winter to give birth and raise their calves to peninsula valdes on the Atlantic coast of Patagonia, Argentina 

Tolai tribe of Papua New Guinea
Traditional customs and rituals remain strong among the inhabitants of these islands. The young Tolais, from the island of New Britain, have to undergo a severe initiation before being able to sail alone. They have to "go to see the fish", as this ceremony is called; it is a test of their courage and capacity for suffering. 

Alaskan salmon
Every year, something special happens in Alaska in late June. Salmon swim from the ocean to the river to spawn. 
When they reach the river they encounter their worst enemies, the Grizzly Bears. These bears are the largest in the world and all because they feed on these salmon.

Spinning dervishes in Turkey
Thousands of kilometers away in Konya, Anatolian city in Turkey, is the tomb of Jalal al-Din al Rumi, philosopher, poet and Sufi mystic.
The dervishes turn with the right arm raised to the sky and down to the left to keep in touch with the earth.
When Rumi died, his followers founded the Sufi order of whirling dervishes mewlevi or who continued spreading his teachings throughout the centuries.
