Researchers believe that when it rains, the worms come out for migration from one place to another in the search of food, new habitat, or a mate. Earthworms can not travel during the dry season because of their moisture requirement. Therefore, the rainy season is the best time for them to travel greater distances over soil surface than traveling through the soil. Scientists also believe that earthworms may feel rain vibrations as predator’s vibrations which cause earthworms to come out of their burrows. During this migration over soil surface, they might get killed by birds or the sun’s heat.
Yes, most of the fish do have tongues. Fish tongues are bony structures that are located on the floor of the mouth, also known as basihyal to protect the ventral aorta. The tongue of the fish does not look like a human’s muscular tongue and also does not have taste buds. Some species of fish have teeth on their tongue to hold and swallow the prey. Certain fish lose their tongue due to parasites such as Isopod, also known as tongue biters. What does a fish tongue look like? Yes, similar to amphibians, most of the fish have a
Yes, cats do have belly button which looks like a tiny scar. It is generally difficult to find, located about midway down the abdomen, just below the ribs. Similar to humans, a kitten is also attached to her mother through the umbilical cord for the transport of oxygen and nutrients. Once the kitten is able to breathe air, the mother will lick or bite the cord to detach. This cord dries up and falls off to leave a tiny scar. Due to the small scar size (5mm) and also covered with fur, it is difficult to see.
Just like other animals and insects, spiders do require and drink water. But they don’t drink water as frequently as humans do. Most of them satisfy their water requirement through the fluid sucked out of the prey. There are spiders such as black widow spiders and redback spiders who don’t require drink water at all because the fluid sucked from their prey is enough for them to meet their water requirement.
Yes, almost all fish have teeth for capturing , crushing, and grinding their prey. Some fish teeth in their upper and lower jaws while some have in their throat. The location, number, and size of the teeth might vary for different species of fish depending on their food and surrounding conditions. Do all fish have teeth? Yes, most fish have teeth. It is very rare that fish don’t have teeth. Almost all fish have teeth of different sizes, types, and at different locations. Most people don’t believe that fish have teeth because their teeth are not easily visible. However,
No, deer don’t hibernate to survive the winter season. Actually deer is an active animal even during winter. Their thick coat of hair helps them to survive cold winter by absorbing and trapping heat. During cold nights, they look for shelter under or near a warm hotspot. When enough food is not available, they reduce their heart rate and metabolism but they don’t go into hibernation mode. Have you ever wondered how do deer survive harsh winter weather? We know that there are animals such as bears, and bats who hibernate during winter to survive harsh winter conditions. In
Yes, bees do have knees which they primarily use for walking and running. Are you really curious about the knees of the bee or about the phrase “the bee’s knees”? Don’t worry! In this article, we will cover both the topics about the bee’s knees. Let’s first understand the anatomy of the bee’s leg. Like other insects, bees also have three pairs of legs primarily used for walking and running. Each pair of these legs are of different size and have a different purpose. The front legs of the bees have notches filled with stiff hairs that are used
No, fish cannot survive in milk. Fish cannot breathe properly in milk due to low dissolved oxygen and the presence of impurities in milk. Therefore, fish may drown in milk within a few minutes. Fish cannot survive if they are exposed to foreign environments such as milk, beer, vodka, or other liquids because their body is not evolved for an environment other than water. Even a freshwater fish cannot survive in salt water and vice versa. Have you ever wondered, can fish swim and survive in milk, coke, beer, or some other liquids other than water. Before we jump
Do all living organisms belong to the same ancestor? According evidence discovered by scientists over many decades “All life on Earth comes from a single ancestor” Yes, you heard that right we all living organisms including human beings have a single common ancestor. This evidence is not from just one disciple, this discovery is supported by various disciples such as physiology and biochemistry, anatomy, paleontology, biogeography, speciation, mathematical modeling, selection, and coloration. This evidence is an important part of evolution theory and also demonstrates that evolution does occur that leads to the creation of biodiversity on earth. Let’s look
