Mud volcanoes in Azerbaidjan

“Did you know that Azerbaijan is a home to 350 mud volcanoes? Whilst scientists discovered 800 such phenomena on our planet. Mud volcanoes are unique as their composition is similar to the Martian soil.” (s.
experienceazerbaijan) “While mud volcanoes (also known as “sedimentary volcanoes”) never grow to the size of a normal volcano, topping out at around 10 km in diameter and 700 meters in height, (among the largest mud volcanoes in the world are Boyuk Khanizadagh and Turaghai, both in Azerbaijan) they do occasionally get the chance to show off, as happened in 2001.” (s.: atlasobscura.com)
