There are a lot of things we can’t explain to ourselves. Nature really does work in mysterious ways, combining atoms into molecules to create the most perfect specimen it wants to create. Sometimes its work is altered because of an outside influence, whether it may be radiation or something we have yet to discover, but the results are always one of a kind and sometimes even truly remarkable.

One such example are blue eyes. You might be wondering what they could possibly have to do with the works of nature but there is actually a funny story about how they came to be. History can’t tell us much about the beginning of humankind, but it leaves us with a lot of theories. Some of them might be true, some of them might be completely absurd, but either way they help us create a picture of the early stages of civilization.

From what we know so far, the first people on this planet had dark features. Now, bear in mind, these are opinions based on the human remains we’ve collected in archeological sites throughout the world. So, if the first humans had dark eyes, how did blue eyes come to be?

The color of the eye is determined by the pigments in it, the more you have them, the darker they are. It is believed that the first blue eyes appeared somewhere in the Black Sea region in Europe and the reason behind it - mutation. What this means is that somewhere in history, there was a human who had less pigments in the eye and a good part of the civilization of today carries his genes. Remarkable, right?

Well, this footage shows us a similar story, one that is unbelievably cute. Presenting 'Whipper' - a bizarre-looking mutant parakeet from New Zealand. This adorable green birdy was left as a baby due to his looks, but managed to survive thanks to the people who found him and took him under their care. He is an absolutely stunning creature with the softest greenish feathers and the most adorable squeeks ever! What a cutie!
