Dinosaurs
by Aniket Kumar
  • The dorsal and pectoral fins of many species of catfish are edged with poisonous spines. The spines are used for defence and can inflict severe wounds.
  • The poison arrow frog is only one of several amphibious species that secrete toxins from glands in its skin. The poison arrow frog uses its poison to kill potential predators.
  • Some dinosaurs were as small as a hen, but the typical dinosaur weighed about as much as a hippopotamus or an elephant.
  • Dinosaur eggs are smaller than those of modern birds. In fact, the largest known dinosaur eggs are much smaller than those of the extinct elephant bird of Madagascar.
  • Instead of chewing their food, some sauropods ground their food between stones in a portion of the digestive tract, much like the gizzard of a modern bird.

 

 

Funda of Fundas

Raccoons love to come out of hiding at night – and they've a good reason to wait until morning to put your trash out on the curb. They have very nimble front paws – in fact, the word raccoon is a derivative of the Native American word arakun, which roughly means "he who scratches with his hands."
