We are back baby! Been a while, but with the finishing of my Masters I am ready to dive right back into the blogging! So lets get back to a personal favourite topic of mine, interesting animals!
- Hummingbirds are the only bird that can fly backwards. Have the others not heard of the reverse gear?
- We have one nose luckily enough, however the slimy slug has four!
- The Slow Ioris is the only venomous primate. This is due to a toxin they secrete from a gland in their inner arm. Some of their bites have caused death in humans! Beware the cute and cuddly creature!
- The Sea Otter is adept at using some tools, frequently using rocks to crack open prey like snails. Rise of the plant of the Otters?
- Just like their human counterparts, some dolphins love to get high. They do this by deliberately handling pufferfish which can produce a narcotic effect for them! The Devils Pufferfish.
