MYTHOI ABOUT ANIMALS
Added on: 24th Mar 2016
TWO NEW EARTHWORMS WILL GROW FROM
ONE EARTHWORM THAT IS CUT IN HALF
Although earthworms do have limited regenerational capabilities,
if you cut a worm in half, its tail end will not regrow a head. In fact,
it won’t regrow anything…it just dies. Now if you cut the
earthworm far back enough (behind the clitellum), the head portion
may regrow a stunted tail. But you won’t have two earthworms.
You’ll still only have one, and it will almost certainly be shorter.
Animal myth busted!
OWLS ARE WISE
Owls are in fact one of the dumbest birds. Crows have been
measured to be significantly smarter.
YOU CAN'T TEACH AN OLD DOG NEW TRICKS
Yes you can, just ask your local dog trainer.
CAMELS STORE WATER IN THEIR HUMPS
Their humps actually store fat. Enough fat that camels
don’t need to eat for 3 weeks.
EARWIGS LIVE IN YOUR EARS
Although they do like dark, warm crevices, your ears are
not one of them.
BEES DIE AFTER THEY STING YOU
There are about 20,000 different species of bee. One of them
does this, the rest don’t.
CROCODILES ARE SLOW ON LAND
This could save your life…crocodiles are fast on land.
Probably faster than you.
CATS ALWAYS LAND ON THEIR FEET
While they do have the ability to contort their spine in such a way
as to readjust themselves in mid-air, this is not always the case.
They’re cats, not superheroes.
