I often think looking at the map that ireland looks like a koala bear - i must have seen some pic of a koala bear holding onto its mothers back - thats what it reminds me of anyhow!

weird but true!

so sorry for replying to this old thread. but i just can't believe nobody else noticed how unique the PHILIPPINES is in terms of shape in the map. i mean, look how distinctive it is compared to what you guys have been saying where almost all of it are Pareidolic.

i can also say Italy has a unique shape, but it doesn't beat the Islands of the Philippines in terms of shape.
