These ‘fairy circles’ appear in Namibia and stretch for over 1,200 miles of land up to Angola. Scientists have been trying to figure out what causes them for years. For a time, it was believed termites were the culprits, but there wasn’t enough evidence to completely settle the matter. The circles were then found to actually occur in patterns, and aren’t random at all, and scientists are now under the impression that the grass naturally organizes itself this way due to the arid nature of their surroundings, and this is how they get their water. Nature in other parts of the world show similar patterns on smaller scales. While nothing is absolutely certain about the circles, that seems to be the most accurate and boring theory.
