The strange land of Socotra, Yemen

UNESCO deems Socotra, Yemen a world natural heritage site, and it’s not difficult to see why, when the tiny tropical island (extending to just 83 by 27 miles) is obviously a poster child for biodiversity: its fauna and flora species hail from Africa, Asia and Europe, and the endemic plant species found nowhere else in the world is the fourth highest of any island group on Earth, after Seychelles, New Caledonia and Hawaii. It is also home to the strange and bulbous dragon’s blood tree.
