2. Socotra Island, Yemen

The Socotra Island is so isolated and distant from any mainland to the extent it is impossible to find one-third of its plant life anywhere in the world. An example of this rare species is the red-sapped dragon’s blood tree, Dracaena Cinnabari.

This weird small archipelago of just four islands in the Indian Ocean was formerly a trade base thousands of years ago. It was mentioned in some ancient texts. Unfortunately, as a result of human habitation similar to the case in other parts of the earth, many plants and animals that were once seen on the Island are no more.
