Socotra Island: A Different View off the Coast of Yemen

Those Doctor Seuss trees are real, and they can be found at Socotra Island. Just off the coast of Yemen, over millions of years, life on the archipelago of Socotra evolved in interesting ways. Buzzfeed has a lovely collection of photos, which provide a rather nice rejoinder to recent media discussions that country. See a few shots after the jump.
