  • Marmoset - world's tiniest primate. Has full set of 32 teeth just like a human......perfectly arched, but no discernable canines in the bite impression. At less that 8 oz., the psi for this little ankle biter is greater than that of a great white shark for it's size. Oh, and they suck as a pet.
  • The cheetah ~ is the fast animal on land over short distances reaching speeds of upto 120kph (75mph). They are unable to retract his claws like other felines, and often mistaken for leopards. A cheetah can purr both on inward and outward breaths.

  • Noble Eagle or Arrogant Scavenger? I find the analogies very representative.
  • On a downside note, eagles will hatch usually two or sometimes three eggs. The stongest nestling will attempt (and usually succeeds) to dump the weaker one(s) out of the nest. The parents make no observed attempt to prevent this. Usually only one nestling is raised to leave the nest. This is common among many birds. I have seen it among robins and jays. I suspect even the parents will "thin the nest" themselves. Not exactly a Walt Disney scenario, but it is nature as it is.
  • I would retract your statement about eagles having "penetrating insights"... what do you mean by that?
