A lot of people had to postpone their traveling plans due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Therefore a lot of people ended up sunbathing in their garden, watching a picture of the beach from their computer’s screen or even sharing these pictures from their favorite trip on the internet.

One of these people who decided to share parts of her trip is this Reddit user u/Zireael_Undercover, aka Aleksandra Lechki, who shared some awesome moments in Perito Moreno, Argentina from her trip around 3 years ago. Earthwonders reached out to her to ask permission on using the image, where she also shared interesting facts about the Perito Moreno glacier.

Aleksandra said the comment section that she was lucky to be there at the right time to catch the sun reflecting on the glaciers like that. “It was literally like this. The sun was shining on the ice and above the mountains dark clouds were gathering. I just got lucky to catch that moment.”

There are some interesting facts about Perito Moreno glacier.  Covering a total of 100 square miles, the glacier is 5 square meters wide and rises 78 meters above the lake Lago Argentino, with its deepest point stretching to approximately 17 meters.

The Perito Moreno glacier began to form during the last Ice Age, which started approximately 2.6 million years ago and ended around 11,700 years ago. Scientists calculate that the Perito Moreno glacier is approximately 18,000 years old.

Global warming means that most glaciers are retreating. Subsequently, melting polar ice caps and glacial recession in the Himalayas, the Alps and other parts of the Patagonian Ice Field pose a serious threat to our ecosystem. However, the Perito Moreno glacier is an exception – it’s advancing, moving forward around 2 meters a day.

“I think this one is interesting in that it shows the scale of how huge the glacier really is. One interesting fact that I remember from the trip is that Perito Moreno is the only glacier that is growing instead of shrinking. That is pretty interesting,” shared Aleksandra for Earthwonders.

Vets Came Across Adorable Pets at Work and Took Pictures of Them

No wonder why many people find shelter from this cruel world in the furry company of their four-legged friend. And truly indeed, there are many health benefits of owning a pet. They can increase opportunities to exercise, get outside, and socialize. Regular walking or playing with pets can thus decrease blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and triglyceride levels.  Pets can also help manage loneliness and depression by giving us companionship.

However, pets can sometimes carry harmful germs that can make us sick even when the pet appears healthy. So in order to prevent such diseases and keep our pets healthy, we need vets. They are the ones who have the power to end our tears, give hope, and let us know that all is fine. Surely, we couldn’t make it without them!

So, scroll down through the wholesome collection of breathtaking pictures of vets and their adorable little patients.
