According to the latest report, China has 239 giant pandas in captivity (128 of them in Wolong and 67 in Chengdu), and another 27 pandas living outside the country.

The heavy clusters of scarlet berries burn in the sun, attracting the attention of people and birds. Sweet aroma fills the air. Birds willingly cherish ripe fruits, and people admire its magical beauty.
Known as sorbus, whitebeam, rowan, service tree, and mountain-ash, it is a tree-amulet used in magic and folk medicine. Considered a magical plant for many centuries, it played an important role in the beliefs and rituals of the ancient Slavs, Scandinavians and Celts. For example, in some places the peasants, when they returned from the cemetery, hung rowan rods over the door, so that the deceased “did not return home.” And in case the deceased turned into a ghoul after death, he was nailed to the ground by a stake, which was sometimes made from rowan. Wanderers made a staff out of mountain ash, chewed it and left a chip in their mouths behind their cheeks so as not to be afraid of any sorcery on the way.
Mysterious tree, or Red maple leaf meaning
Red maple leaf facts
The beautiful red maple leaf has been the national symbol of Canada for over 150 years. Red and white are the official colors of Canada, proclaimed by King George V in 1921.

Chamarel beautiful Seven-Color Earths
French Terres des Sept Couleurs, known as Seven-colored sand, is a formation and a famous tourist attraction located in the south-west of Mauritius, near the village of Chamarel. Occupied by sand dunes, this small area consists of sand of seven different colors (red, brown, purple, green, blue, purple and yellow). Noteworthy, the sands of these colors randomly located in different layers, and dunes, painted in different colors, seem surreal. Meanwhile, this phenomenon is also on a small scale. For instance, if you mix two handfuls of different shades, eventually they will still be divided according to the color spectrum. Also noteworthy that the dunes are not subject to erosion despite the torrential tropical rains of Mauritius.
The sands formed from basalt (effusive rock) into clay, which then turned into ferralite soil due to complete hydrolysis. Aluminum and iron, the two main components, give the blue-purplish and red-black color, respectively. According to researchers, the difference in shades is a consequence of the cooling of molten volcanic rocks at different external temperatures. However, it is still not clear why they did not mix.
