    I guess my favorite habitat would be rainforests... not that I've ever been in one but they're a big biodiversity spot and I LOVE biodiversity.
    but... It might be more awsome to be near a black smoker... or in the bioluminecent lake.... or in coral reefs... or really really deep with all the strange animals w/ glowing organs and stuff...
    I refuse to choose lol.

    theres ginko biloba in central park and it STINKS. The tree i choose looks awesome i'll try to take a picture of it next time i'm over there. Its small about 10 feet, covered in small hairs and the leaves are too. They red burgundy in color and the flowers are pink. It looks great since its all over. Tropical islands have the best vegetation.
