New island off Japan's coast looks just like Snoopy

2013-12-31 11:22
Bonin Island - An active Volcano about 170 miles south of Japan is in the process of creating a new island.

Originating very close to Nishi-no-shima (meaning Western Island),the new land has steadily grown and is now beginning to overlap with Nishi-no-shima, merging the two.

A twitter user @tekken8810 pointed out its similarity to Charles Schulz’s iconic cartoon character Snoopy. And once you see it, it cannot be unseen.

Unfortunately the volcano is still quite active, so the island probably won't remain in its cute beagle shape for long.
