(8) Sea horses are the only animals in the entire world whose male members carry their young rather than the females. While mating, the female leaves the eggs in the small pouch of the male, thereby making it pregnant. This leaves the female free to make more eggs and reproduce at a faster rate.
(9) A turtle's gender is not determined by chromosomes but the ambient temperature of the eggs. This has become a matter of concern in light of global warming with a threat of an all-female population and extinction.
(10) Polar bears have clear fur covering a layer of black skin which helps them absorb the sun's rays better. The rays get trapped in the fur and cause luminescence which makes it look white.

What I Learnt Today : Pterodactyl was not only the flying dinosaur, There were many

What I Learnt Today : Pterodactyl was not only the flying dinosaur, There were many image source & credit :  LINK We are all familiar to Pterodactyl, the flying dinosaur. But, actually there existed so many flying dinosaurs. The common name of all this “flying dinosaurs” is Pterosaurs. There are about 130 genus of Pterosaurs existed in the jurassic period. Here I listed some of them — 1. Pterodactyl The Pterodactyls had a couple of very wide wings up to 40 feet long. But, these wings are not similar to modern bird’s wings. There were no feathers , their wings were made of a leathery substance. They lived near the sea in the cave & trees. They ate sea fish, large insects & other small dinosaurs. We found their fossils in Europe, North America, Australia, and Africa. Pterodactyl image source & credit :  LINK Pterodactyl Fossil image source & credit :  LINK 2.

What I Learnt Today : Some Unknown Amazing Facts About Cats

What I Learnt Today : Some Unknown Amazing Facts About Cats image credit When Cats chase their prey, they keep their head level. But, humans & other animals bob their heads up and down. There are over 20 muscles in Cat’s ears. And Cat’s hearing ability is far better than dogs. Cats sleep 18-20 hours a day. And they sleep near 70% of their lives. It’s an amazing true that Cats have no sense of tasting sweet foods. Cats make about 100 different vocal sounds. Dogs make only about 10. When cats grimace, they are usually “taste-scenting.” They have an extra organ that, with some breathing control, allows the cats to taste-sense the air. Cats can hear ultrasonic sounds that Dolphins create to communicate each other. Most cats are lactose intolerant, so, they can’t digest cow milk. Killing Cats was a punishable offence (in the most cases punish to death) in the ancient Egypt. Owning a cat can reduce the risk of stroke and heart attack by a third. image credit Eve
