Pelicans
by Aniket Kumar

  • Some pelicans, especially the larger species, co-operate to drive fish into each others bills. They swim along a line, herding the fish in front of them before they close into feast on the catch.
  • The owl parrot or kakapo of New Zealand is a flightless endangered species. A nocturnal bird, it feeds on juices that it extracts from plants.
  • We don't usually think about "night" and "day" in marine habitats, but apparently catfish do. Catfish are nocturnal scavengers that typically live in shallow water.
  • If you've ever had a pet hamster, you probably know that these furry creatures are nocturnal. They've been known to keep their human owners awake through the night while they run on their squeaky exercise wheel. 

Funda of Fundas

The monarch butterfly is known for its extraordinarily long migrations: Monarchs that live east of the Rocky Mountains fly to central Mexico, and those that live west of the Rockies migrate to the California coast. The longest recorded flight for a tagged adult is 1,800 miles.
