Finds of the week
This video captures, as representatives of the Pacific Mammal Mammal Center, Pacific MMC are published back to the ocean of the sea lions, the past period of rehabilitation and ready to return to the natural environment. Animals Practically run into water, as soon as they are carrying. Pacific MMC is the only organization of this kind in Orange County (California, USA). Her staff find on local beaches of marine mammals (most often these are ordinary seals or sea lions) suffering from diseases (by the way, seals also have pneumonia!) or injuries and take them to treatment. In the center of seals feed fresh fish, vitamins and give them medicines. When animals are recovered, they are released on the will. Earlier, "my planet" talked about the representatives of the fauna, which survived due to the efforts of a person. And here we wrote, why, seeing a young seal on the beach – Belka, should not throw it into the water. That you will not save him, but get drunk it. How to deal with marine animals, if you want to help them, "my planet" told Laura Beloivan, director of the seaside rehabilitation center "Tyulen".
Skeleton in the closet
Now you know what a skeleton of Tukan looks like. Surprisingly, the huge beak does not outweigh the rest. The thing is that it only seems heavy, but in fact consists of empty cavities, so almost nothing weighs. Tukanov works like air conditioning: it helps to keep warm in cold weather, and in the heat, on the contrary, hot air is going to coolant and the bird is cooled. You can determine the tukan’s age: in chicks it has a long lower part, which helps them easier to catch food, which are thrown for them to those responsible parents. Also, the beak, due to its unusual form, is ideal for the fractures of fig freshers and the Maracuy. In addition, tukanam is very convenient to eat together – one breaks away the berries and throws up, another catches them and eats.
By the way, how do you think they sleep with such a huge beak? Everything is simple: the bird turns 180 ° and stacked it on the back between the wings. The tail she presses to the stomach, turns himself with wings and falls asleep in such a pose. Read also about how the unusual actions of animals are explained, and how they sleep.
As a flash
Admire which unusual paintings create with the help of Bengal lights! The very name of them is formed from the province of India – Bengal. It was there in the V-VI centuries that the distant ancestors of modern lights were used. Ancient texts show that during religious ceremonies on altars in the temples flashed and quickly burned "fire of extraordinary brightness". By the beginning of the VIII century, Indian chemists came up with how to make formulations for colored fire: blue, green and yellow. In addition, they found out how to lengthen the burning time – for this, the composition began to fill dry hollow stalks of plants.
Loved the analogs of Bengal Lights and Eastern Slavs. They organized "fiery fun" using a plant of liquidia. If you light dry mature disputes of this plant, you can get a beautiful lightning-shaped outbreak. And in order for the fire to burn not only bright, but also loudly, dried and fluttered birch foliage was added. By the way, see what will happen if you set fire to 10,000 Bengal lights.
