When it comes to various species of animals, they are all unique and amazing. Every animal has something unique than the others. So, it is not always possible to know all about these specialties in unusual animals. Here are some of the facts about the beautiful animals that will leave you awed.
Unique Animals: Shrimp’s Heart In The Head
Yes, the water insect has its heart in the head. However, studying the exact anatomy of the shrimp will reveal that the heart is on the thorax. It is just after their head. Both the thorax and head has been covered with a single exoskeleton.
Three Years Sleep For Snails!
The process of going dormant during dry and hot weather is aestivation. Snails adapt to the process by rolling inside their shells and then burying themselves underground. It is their way to survive in such weather. In this way, these little creatures can stay three or even more years. Sometimes, it also leads to the death of the snails.
Unique Animals: Is It A Koala Or Human At A Crime Scene!
Wondering what the headline means? So, let me tell you the secret. The koalas have fingerprints just like any human being. As it is indistinguishable, sometimes, their presence on a crime scene makes investigation complicated.
Slug Has Noses Not One Nose
Slugs are cold and slimy. They steal your kale to munch on. But, do you know that these little fellows have not one but two noses? It is a fascinating factor about slugs. Along with two noses, they also have two tentacles for eyes. These noses and eyes, or else we can say tentacles, are retractable. Two of the tentacles are for seeing, and the other two are for smelling. As these tentacles move in different directions, slugs can see and smell two things simultaneously in different directions.
Elephant Can’t Jump
Unlike hippos or rhinos, elephants do not jump because they don’t need to jump. Those animals who can jump are either prey or predator. When it comes to elephants, they protect themselves from predators with their size and weight. Apart from that, elephants have a strong protective social group to keep them safe. Also, the elephant legs are straight, and their feet don’t have “spring-like” padding. So, it will be impossible for them to put pressure on their legs and jump with the 4 tons of weight.
Unique Animals: Hair-made Horns Of Rhinos!
In reality, it is not precisely the hair but the protein that creates the hair. That means the horns of the rhinos are made of keratin that we find in hair production and fingernails. The horns differ from one species of rhinos to others based on the environment.
Two Weeks To Digest Food!
You will be stunned that it is a real fact about the sloths. These slow animals rely on their stomach bacteria to digest their food slowly. So, they even defecate after eight days and not immediately or one day later. Along with bacterial dependency, the temperature plays a big role in their digestion. In case it is night time, or they are in a cold, shady place, the digestion rate goes down.
