Where to Find Pentagonal Symmetry | Scienceray

Where to Find Pentagons | Scienceray:
"you can not cover a flat surface only with pentagonal tiles, you need to use other polygons to cover the empty spaces. On the other hand, plants, many fruits and even animals with pentagonal symmetry are much easier to find.
Just think about any flower with five petals, or chop an apple in two halves you will see how seeds are disposed like a pentagon. Paying a bit of attention we will find many examples of pentagonal symmetry."
