Flies and Giraffes
by Aniket Kumar
 
  • Unlike all other insects, flies have five eyes.
    They have two large eyes
    and three smaller eyes between them.
  • Snails have four noses.
  • Penguins can jump 6 feet in the air.
  • Snakes can see through their eyelids.

How Giraffes Compensate for Height?

They may reach the foliage in high trees without difficulties, but this comes with its disadvantages. For the blood to reach the head, a heart twice as strong as normal is needed. Also, the blood vessel system should be complex so that the blood doesn’t rush to the head when the giraffe bents over. In addition, the skin of the legs must then be extremely tight to prevent blood from pooling at the hooves.
