Photos by @davidliittschwager from One Cubic Foot. The river cooter, the mountain creek shell, crayfish, and the golden darter are found in Tennessee's Duck River, one of the most biodiverse waterways in the U.S.. It harbors several endemic species— animals found nowhere else on Earth. We found 32 fish species, and 7 species of mussels, 3 of them endangered, 151 species in just one cubic foot.

Photos by @davidliittschwager from One Cubic Foot. The carnivorous plant Alice Sundew and a very well-armored pill millipede are two of the inhabitants of this tiny piece of fynbos. Fynbos, derived from Dutch, refers to the “fine-leaved” vegetation that grows in the mountainous areas of the Cape Floristic Region. We counted 90 separate species, including 25 types of plants just on the soil surface. There are 9,000 native plant species in the CFR—many of them evolved here and live nowhere else.
