The Red bellied woodpecker’s tongue can extend to 2/3 of its entire body length. The only way it can fit in the woodpecker’s head is by wrapping around its brain and eye sockets.
On sunny days there is more sunshine in the day time than in the morning. As a result the rate of photo synthesis get higher of the mosses and more oxygen gas is produced. This oxygen bubbles trapped within the moss makes it float on the surface.
On sunny days moss in shallow tanks stays underwater in the morning and floats on the surface in day time. What is the scientific reason behind this?
The reason why hair turns gray as we age is because the pigment cells in the hair follicle start to die, which is responsible for producing “melanin” which gives the hair color.
Unlike humans, rats can rotate their eyes independently, where they can keep one eye always.
No. Two people do not see the same rainbow. We can only see one color from each water droplet of the rainbow. These colors change with the angle we watch. No two people can stay at the same position at the same time and look up in the same angle. Moreover, water droplets are constantly in motion so, the every time we look we see a different rainbow.
Do two people ever see the same rainbow?
Although you may consider gold to be rare, there is enough gold in the Earth’s crust to cover the land surface of the planet knee-deep.
You’ve lost about 1% of your body’s water by the time you feel thirsty.
A popcorn kernel is actually a seed. At its center is a tiny plant embryo, a life form in its earliest phase. The embryo is surrounded by soft, starchy material that contains water. Surrounding the embryo is a hard shell. When the kernel is heated to about 200 degrees Celsius, the water turns to steam. The pressure from the steam causes the kernel’s shell to explode and the starch to spill out.
Did you ever think how pop-corns pop?
Coca Cola originally contained cocaine as an ingredient.
Most people think the only colors of a rainbow are red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet, but a rainbow is actually made up of an entire continuum of colors even colors the eye can’t see!
On the International Space Station, 93% of the astronauts’ urine and perspiration is converted back into drinkable water.
The clouds that jets form on certain days are called condensation trails or contrails. A contrail forms because one of the components of jet engine exhaust is water. Jet fuel is made of carbon and hydrogen. When jet fuel burns with oxygen, most of the exhaust consists of CO2 (carbon dioxide) and water that is generally an invisible vapor. If the temperature, winds and humidity in the upper atmosphere are right, long, white contrails form when the moisture in the exhaust condenses.
Why do jets leave a white trail in the sky?
Lobster blood is colorless until it is exposed to air. Then the blood appears blue.
Neptune has the most violent wind in the solar system which can reach an astonishing 1,500 mph (2414 km/h). Because Neptune’s topography is fairly flat, there is no friction to slow down these incredible gusts of wind.
Electric eels and electric rays have enough electricity to kill a horse.
Dogs’ noses secrete a small amount of mucus which serves two purposes: to help their sense of smell, and to keep themselves cool. The thin layer of mucus helps with the absorption of scent chemicals from the air. In addition, the nose, along with the mouth and the pads of the feet, is one of the locations where dogs’ bodies release heat. As a result dogs’ nose is often cold and wet.
