Just like some of the humans, animals can also be weird at times. Of course they are lovable, funny, intriguing, and interesting, but nevertheless they are also weird. So, why don’t we go over some of the funny habits of animals?
Dolphins also suffer from insomnia.
Who would not love dolphins? Every time I am at the sea, I would always wish that some dolphins suddenly appear out of the water. They are indeed so adorable. But did you know suffer from insomnia. And just many of us humans, the reason is love but not for their mate. The mother dolphins along with their newborn calves don’t sleep for several months. This is to ensure that the baby dolphin does not drown and also be kept away from predators. Now, talk about how hard it is to raise a kid.
Bees and their Exploding Balls
Today when loyal beings seem to dwindle along endangered species, let bees take us to a whole lot different level of displaying loyalty. In fact, they are crazily loyal. After reading this, you might reconsider that whole “birds and bees” analogy about explaining sex. Why? Because bees, they just lose their testicles when they mate. There is nothing crazy about that, right? When a drone mates with the queen, its penis snaps off inside of her, thereby acting as a plug to keep the sperm inside. And you think it is the craziest part already. During copulation, their balls also explode. I thought they want to reproduce. What’s the use for the dynamite?
The Incino Frog?
Do you still remember the movie The Incino Man starring the young Brendan Fraser? Well that story may never come true but in the animal kingdom it happens all the time. Let us take for example the case of the frogs.
While it is common story that animals go into hibernation cycles during the colder months I didn’t realize that frogs hibernate as well. When animals hibernate, they can slow down their heart rate exponentially, and their body temperatures drop as well. Frogs do it one step better. They can actually be completely frozen, their hearts would stop, and their breathing cease. And then one day they just wake up as if they just had a nap.
