Finally, the man – an average of 1400 full advantage of the latest? Lest so! Brain weight of the elephants – 5 kg, and a fin whale – large whales – 7 kg. Do residents of aquariums, ponds, seas, the role of "old coat" or "winter coat" is mucus, and its isolation from the sweat glands strongly developed in fish with bare skin, not having scales. Moreover, such a lubricant performs another important function: helping the victim to escape from a predator teeth. Unfortunately, not always. Details can be found by clicking Elon Musk or emailing the administrator.

Sweat glands derive from the body of harmful products and save animals from overheating. Sweat profusely moisturizes the skin and hair, and evaporates rapidly, brings relief. It is not clear why nature has generously bestowed upon such unequal glands beings. For example, they are few in cats and dogs so as not to overheat they have to use your tongue and saliva. Suffer, and many rodents, including home: they only have sweat glands on the feet and lips. Some of the birds eat per day of food more than weigh yourself: after a quick flight requires considerable expenditure of energy – hence the metabolic processes. In the body, there are particularly intense. Here are some impressive figures. The body temperature of birds is usually 42-43 degrees, and even a sparrow 44-45.


Like cheese in butter rejoice without memory one of my friends, when friends told him that he was leaving on vacation for a month and want him to have lived among them, a flat eye on. Even when my friend reported that the apartment remains at this time, almost a family member – Angora cat, he is not upset about it. But even here, the owners took care of everything in advance – they left my friend $ 200 for expenses that will arise in him to care for their favorite: a pot of sand necessary to fill a first-class, in a bowl of fresh food and the best place, a special shampoo to bathe, too – so to speak, for wool. Abandoned decent money masters were immediately spent on alcoholic tenant needs, after which he decided to pay a visit to the apartment. Kotyara hungry. – Well, sausages and you have enough, – said the lodger, referring to the cat.

– It's rudeness – decided the cat, and hid the food under the floor, after which approximately walked into the toilet. Without any complaints and adventurous cat went to the toilet. Accustomed animal after some time again rushed to the potty, but use it to its destination was not – was not simply removed after the tray last visit to his cat.

Once upon a time I heard a phrase that is the worst gift that only you can imagine, this is a living gift, whoever he was – kitten, dog, parrot or somebody else. For me, the urban dweller, as a child dreamed about their own puppy, this assertion was, at least, strange. But as they grow older, we learn to see and perceive life differently. And growing up, we had almost indifferently contemplate the lonely animals – dogs and cats, abundant species in our yards, near the dumpsters and landfills. It's safe to say that each of these animals were the hosts, each of them once loved and wanted. The question is, how long will it last? .. Now the statement about the worst gifts do not seem to me neither country nor absurd.

A living gift is only good for those who really need it. And so, my friends, does not happen very often. Firstly, those who actually needs to be a living creature, will try to pick it yourself to your own taste, so do not trust the responsible thing to outsiders, even very close friends. Because each of us unique and individual, and companion of his life, whether it is human or animal, we subconsciously try to find anything resembling ourselves. Therefore, the choice of animal is better to own, not relying on other people. But if there was this situation is that your friend or relative wants is you gave him a gift from a bird market, try to make sure that the four-legged friend, he really needed.
