Animal Facts & Photos
It’s fun to learn about animals, and there are several websites I’ve stumbled upon this week that you might enjoy looking at.
Eastern Bolivia is one of the most biologically diverse areas on Earth, according to BoliviaBella.com which has an online gallery of wildlife. Are flamingo’s born pink? What animal gave the financial security industry the idea to use iridescent images on paper currency and credit cards to make them difficult to counterfeit? And how many bear species are in South America? Answers to these and other questions can be found on this website, together with some wildlife photos.
If you like facts, read this next paragraph. If facts don’t work for you, and you prefer photographs, skip to the following paragraph.
From Bolivia to India. IloveIndia.com has a list that will delight anyone who really likes information. They have 3 pages of lists of “Facts About –“ animals, ranging from Facts About Lobster to Facts About Red Wolf to Facts About Echidna. They also answer questions such as Why do Horses Sleep Standing Up? and discuss Different Types of Whales.
If you’re more visually based, you may enjoy Buzz Inn’s page of photographs of the Strangest And Rarest Animals In World. The animals include the venomous, nocturnal, burrowing, insectivorous mammals called solenodons. Sea pigs and Vampire Squids make a certain impression, while personally I think the Ocelot and the Red Panda are among the cutest animals on the website. The writers share some interesting animal facts, such as that the brain of the river dolphin is 40% larger than a human brain. An okapi has a tongue that is long enough for the animal to wash its eyelids and clean its ears. And the Pig-Nosed Frog is the dinosaur of the frog species – about 50 to 100 million years old, it survived past environmental changes by living deep underground.
Have fun checking out the websites. Happy Friday!
