  • The platypus doesn't have nipples. Milk just comes out of her skin. Earthworms have both male and female reproductive organs in their little collars. Bats actually have better eyesight than humans, they just have better hearing than eyesight and are not particularly graceful in flight, because of their large weight to wing area ratio compared to birds.

      Thank you! I knew about the worms being both male and female. And the platypus is weird in many ways! I did not know that bats see better than humans! But I know spiders that build webs don't see well enough to hunt. That's why they act scared when they finally see you, because they didn't see you coming.

      How would man figure these things out?? They call it science but it,s just speculation.

      You're obviously too stupid to understand anything you don't wish to accept so go your way and leave us alone. If you want to answer answer but stop challenging what you obviously don't know anything about! You're just advertising your ignorance. God gave us instruction so we could learn not close our minds to anything we don't understand!

      All you have to do is look at the video to see the male sea horse giving birth! And I've read the entire bible end to end so don't tell me what I should read. Go read about the pharisees that yelled crucify him when he didn't do anything wrong and then go look in a mirror and see what a pharasee looks like telling other people they are wrong when you don't know shit, Mona!

      That's right! Good one!

  • The Blue Jay is known to imitate the red shouldered hawk's call in order to scare away competition for food. ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?edufilter=NULL&v=WLBaChHwZ1Y )
  • Aardvarks only eat three things: Ants, Termites, and Cucumbers. Aardvarks will eat no other vegetable matter than cucumber, and there is even a special kind of cucumber, called an aardvark cucumber, which bears fruit underground and cannot reproduce without aardvarks to dig it up and spread its seeds.

      Wow!
  • Australian edition: Kangaroos can contract herpes. Wombat poo is cubical. The Fitzroy river turtle can breathe through its butt.
    • Linda Joy
      Do you know WHY wombat poo is cubical? I had to look it up! lol https://www.cnn.com/2018/11/19/australia/wombat-cube-poo-intl/index.html

      Why or how? Why is a fantastic question. I don't think anyone really knows for sure, but anyone could guess - maybe so the poo doesn't roll away. But, "how" is possible to explain at different levels: Basically, the wombat's large intestines are flat with opposing grooves along the edges. When the large intestine fills with relatively moist goo from the small intestine, the grooves act like bellows, allowing the large intestine to expand in one direction, but not the other, until it is a rectangle. When the large intestine is full, the wombat's body sends the signal to extract the remaining moisture through the walls of the intestine, and the dried feces breaks apart into cubes. Biologists in Australia just recently started dissecting roadkill wombats in order to find that out.

      For me, the more interesting question is why the Fitzroy river turtle breathes through its butt. I guess that's fine, as long as it doesn't also smell through its butt, which it doesn't.
    • Linda Joy
      Yuup, that's what it says in the link I provided. But also interesting was that they said it may change the way cubed building materials are made. I'd heard that before about the turtle though I didn't remember the exact turtle. I would guess that's the last chance to gasp for air before diving underwater. And I have no idea about animal diseases except African monkeys getting AIDS and possibly the eating of monkey meat being a source of spreading of it. Interesting stuff about animals! Thank you!
    • bostjan64
      I'm puzzled about where they are going with that building material production. Are they going to have wombats eat a bunch of crushed stone to make bricks? LOL I have a lot of questions about the situation with the turtle, but they are not polite questions, and I probably don't really want to know the answers anyway. Regarding AIDS, it's a complex of observed symptoms for which HIV is responsible. HIV was completely unrecorded before the 1960's, and now we are aware of two distinct species of the virus, HIV-1 and HIV-2. HIV-1 is very similar in structure and genome to SIVcpx, which is common in chimpanzees, and is also found in the blood of people who handle chimpanzee meat, although it is not cause any symptoms. If you think about the fact that HIV takes about 10 years to lead to symptoms, and then you think of the history of the area where it was first observed, I think that it's pretty easy to understand how it began spreading.
