  • 13.  Most of these gigantic trees can be found in California. When factoring in volume, these trees are the largest with heights as high as 80 meters and widths as large as 8 meters. http://www.flickr .com/photos/grac efamily/382661371 5/in/photostream /
  • 14.  This plant is characterized by dark colors that include red and black (as shown in this picture) and a tuft at the end of the stem. Because it is a moss, it has a non-vascular system and is usually http://www.flick tiny in size. r.com/photos/gjs hepherd/4303024 385/in/photostre am/
