The world of animals is a world full of secrets, despite what we know about most of the land and sea creatures, especially with regard to their way of living and eating food and drink and other different living conditions, but many of them remain hidden from us, in this article we will learn ten strange information that you do not know About animals:
You may not be able to differentiate between a lion and a lioness?
How can we differentiate between a lion and a lioness? Most of the answers will say that the easiest way to differentiate them is that the male has a mane (the hair around his head) and the female does not, (in addition to looking at their genitals).
Although this is the most popular answer and is offered by even the most devoted wildlife programme, this is not always true. It has been observed that many females have a crest and adult males without a crest in many regions of Africa, experts believe that the reason behind this is the increase and decrease of testosterone.
Humpback whale song
A humpback can repeat a 10- to 20-minute “song” for over 24 hours. In fact, the purpose behind these ongoing musical performances has remained largely a mystery.
Researchers believe their purpose is to attract females, challenge other males, or to locate by echo. Or it could simply be just because she loves to sing! This information has not been mentioned in any scientific research, but this does not mean that it is possible and deserves to be taken into consideration at least. The ocean is such a huge place, that might be how whales spend their time.
What we already know is that these “songs” are as common among the humpback whale community as pop songs do on Earth. It starts with a small gathering of whales creating a unique set of melodies. Then, about two years later, the song spreads among many congregations throughout the Pacific, and often the same song was reproduced extensively on the road.
animal that does not drink water
The only animal that does not drink water throughout its life is the kangaroo rat, not the kangaroo, as some believe. It is a small animal that lives especially in the desert and farms, its length ranges between 10 and 20 centimeters, and its weight does not exceed 180 grams. It resembles a mouse or a rat in its size and shape and resembles a kangaroo in the form of its hind legs that it can stand on just like a kangaroo. Although he lives in hot areas, how can he live without drinking water?
In fact, the kangaroo rat lives on water like the rest of the creatures, but it makes the water itself and does not drink it, as it can die if it drinks water. The chemical formula of water is H2O which means one oxygen and two hydrogens. When these creatures eat grains and some other foods, they take hydrogen from their food and mix it with the oxygen they breathe, so that water is formed in it. Glory be to God. To sum up, the kangaroo rat is an animal that does not drink water but synthesizes it inside its body.
King Cobra – The poison of its bite kills 20 people
King cobra venom is so deadly that one gram of it is enough to kill a person 150 times.
The King Cobra, the longest venomous snake with a length of 6.5 meters, was the longest known snake with a length of 7.5 meters and a weight of 6 kg. Cobra, the king cobra is not one of the well-known cobras, but rather belongs to a special genus. The head of the king cobra is equivalent to the size of the fist of the human hand, and the front of its body can be erect until its height reaches the average length of an adult human. The poison extracted from the bite of a king cobra is enough to kill a huge elephant or 20 people, and the average life of a king cobra is about 20 years.
The elephant remains standing after its death
It is known that when living things die and take their last breath, they fall to the ground immediately. But Glory be to God, if the death throes of death surprised the elephant while he was standing on his feet and died standing on his feet, he does not fall directly to the ground, but rather remains standing for a few hours and then falls to the ground.
Once a week sloths go down to the ground
Once a week, sloths go down to the ground to relieve themselves. They climb down the tree, dig a hole in the ground, (unload the load), cover the hole with leaves and return to safety.
Why do sloths take all this trouble to go to the toilet? Why not hang on a tree branch and gravity do the rest? And no one knows the real reason for this, maybe he wants to fertilize his favorite tree! It should be mentioned here that half of the cases of sloth death are due to him landing on the ground to relieve himself.
And speaking of leftovers, we will mention here that sloths actually like to eat leftovers, no, not their own (that sounds disgusting). He eats human waste.
Sloths are very slow living creatures, as algae grows on their fur, which makes them look green and acts as a camouflage for them.
An ostrich lives up to 75 years and remains able to reproduce until the age of 50. The ostrich does not bury its head in the sand to escape from danger, but because when it brings its brain close to the ground, it can see its enemy very clearly, and this is considered a form of innate intelligence.
