An In-Depth Look At Where and How Nature Celebrates "Bald"
In the natural world, being called "bald" isn't nearly as disagreeable as it is in the human world.
Nature may abhor a vacuum, but it seems to love bald spots. Or at least, people seem to enjoy attaching the name bald to some of nature’s finest landmarks and animals.
Animals? Yes indeed. We all know about the bald eagle, of course, the proud symbol of the United States.
But there’ s also the bald buzzard, also called the fish hawk or osprey; the bald uakari, which likes the swampy jungles of South America; the bald ibis, which is in grave danger of becoming extinct; and even the bald-faced hornet.
And that’s not counting those animals that enterprising scientists have managed to make hairless through special breeding.
The list of mountains and hills that are “baldly” named is quite staggering. There are quite a few, with such names as Bald Mountain and here; Bald Peak; Bald Rock; Bald Knob and here; Bald Head Cliff; and Bald Head Mountain.
And, just to prove that hair loss issues are not confined solely to the human race, we can see that some flowers experience bald spots and that some mountains believe that a cloud toupee can cover any signs of hairline (or possibly tree line?) recession.
Perhaps you’ve vacationed at a bald location we missed or know of another bald animal deserving of attention. If so, share it with us. Let us know what other examples of bald nature are out there.
