Desperate times call for desperate measures.
African Elephants have been hunted so much over the years, that whenever they hear a helicopter the herd hurry to the closest road to them and walk with the tourists/local civilians until the helicopter disappears. Why do they do this? Well, the Elephants have learnt, that if they are on the road with humans, they can’t be shot at.
Ants, ants and more ants.
The biggest ant colony was found on the Ishikari Coast of Hokkaido: 306 million worker ants and 1 million queens lived in 45,000 interconnected nests over an area of 2.7 square kilometres (1,7 square miles). A worker ant will live for up to 5 years; while a Queen will live up to 25 years.
A famous marine biologist has said that he has found many great discoveries over the years, but the greatest discovery of all is that fish do not actually exist. The word ‘Fish’ is used as an umbrella term for all swimming species in the ocean, mainly smaller species, but actually no ‘Fish’ in the ocean have any genetic link what so ever to one another, there for making it impossible to group them together. Look at it this way, an eagle and a bee can fly, but they both have no genetic link what so ever, bee’s, wasps and other flying insects are not classed as ‘Birds’, because there is no genetic link, the only thing they have in common is they can both fly. Well, this is the same with ‘Fish’, every single specie of ‘Fish’ swim in the ocean etc, but they are not genetically related in any way. There for, the term Fish actually means nothing at all, its only a word we use to cover all species in the sea, but the group itself does not exist.
