Cows don't have any incisors on their upper jaws. That's why they hold grass firmly between the teeth on their lower jaw and the dental pad on their upper jaw. Then they pinch it off with a powerful Tug of their tongue. The coarsely shredded grass is swallowed, regurgitated as cud and then chewed a second time. This process is called rumination. It is often said that cows have four stomachs, but in fact they only have one, with three small compartments that food passaid that cows have four stomachs, but in fact they only have one, with three small compartments that food passes through first: the rumen, the reticulum, the omasum and, finally, the actual stomach: the abomasum.… read more

Before two Bulls fight, they stare at each other aggressively. "The first one to look away loses", as the saying goes. It doesn't ...happen often, but if neither of them gives up, then they fight.

The herrerasaurus was somewhat small compared with the Giganotosaurus and Stegosaurus, who lived much later on. It was only three ...to four meters long. In return, its legs were very strong, and it could Sprint about as fast as a 100-metre Runner. For a dinosaur, the herrerasaurus had a rather unusual lower jaw, which it could slide back and forth by means of a flexible joint. This allowed it to better grasp its prey. It was named after the Argentinian goatherd Victorino herrera, who chanced upon its skeleton in 1959. read more

Octopus can be easily distinguished from other squids because they have eight tentacles. This is why they are called octopus, beca...use the Greek word "okto" means eight and "puos" means foot. If they feel threatened, they release an ink-like liquid, which spreads in the water like a huge, dark cloud. The octopus can thus disguise the direction of its escape. Moreover, the animals are masters of camouflage because they can instantly change their body color from grey-brown to blue-green, red or pink. read more

After the Mustangs, noble Arab and Berber horses came to America. They bred with the Mustangs, and so nowadays you can still spot ...their elegant body shapes among many wild horses. It is often said that Mustangs are rather stubborn. This is because they live in freedom and are completely independent of humans. They also give birth to their foals without any assistance.

The tiger shark gets its name from its long, dark stripes, which are reminiscent of a tiger. It prefers to eat turtles, cracking t...heir shells with its sharp teeth.

Car tires, parts of ships and boats, nails, jewelry, clothing, and books have even been found in the stomachs of tiger sharks. They even eat when they are not hungry, and humans consider them to be one of the most dangerous of the around 500 (mostly harmless) shark species. read more
