Tigers
by Aniket Kumar
  • Tigers can jump up to 10 m (33 ft) in one leap.

  • You have heard of the fabled phoenix rising from its ashes but I am sure you haven’t heard of the return of another prodigal – the California Grey Whale. It has returned twice from extinction – once in 1880s and the second time in 1930s.

  • During the summer, a blue whale can eat about 40 million krill a day - about 3600 kg.

  • The tiger shark may bear as many as 82 living young at one time.

Funda of Fundas

Like the character Count Dracula and his real-life vampire bat counterparts, a small, East African jumping spider has a taste for blood. The spider, Evarcha Culicivora, lacks the ability to pierce skin and to sip blood, so instead it feeds indirectly on blood by choosing, as its meal, female mosquitoes that have just engorged themselves with a victim's blood. The blood-hungry spider is the first predator ever identified that selects its prey based upon what the prey just ate. Similar to a protein shake, blood can be a highly nutritious drink that goes down smoothly.
