The Sunda flying lemur (Galeopterus variegatus), also known as Sunda Colugo, lives in Southeast Asia and are endemic to Indochina and Sundaland. This nocturnal creature is strictly aboreal and lives its entire life in tropical rainforests. While the Sunda flying lemur cannot truly fly, a membrane of skin called a patagium allows them to glide from tree to tree. Their herbivorous appetite, which consists of young leaves, flowers, fruits, and shoots, helps the ecosystem by dispersing seeds and pollen.

An international team of researchers performed the first global study using a new set of ultra–high-resolution Google Earth images—in which each pixel represents a patch of ground less than a meter wide, as opposed to tens of meters. Hundreds of scientists and students then combed through 210,000 images and found that the world’s drylands host 40% more forests than thought.

The Sierpinski Triangle is a simple fractal that can be created using several different methods. In this example, I used Mathematica to make Sierpinski's Triangle using the method of successive removals. There are a few other methods displayed in the comments section.
