When geologists go on research trips, they’re normally looking to observe specific rocks, minerals, and fossils. What this Californian scientist wasn’t expecting was to open up a volcanic rock in Brazil—only to find an uncanny resemblance of the Cookie Monster.

On the inside? It’s a glorious cream and blue. And it looks just about ready to growl “om nom nom nom nom” at the world.
Geologists have found a rare formation inside a rock that looks just like the Cookie Monster character from Sesame Street.
