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

The Dimetrodon was a dreaded apex predator, which lived about 300-270 million years ago - thus 40-70 million years before the firs...t prehistoric saurian.

Its scientific name essentially means "two measures of teeth", because its teeth were of different sizes. read more

Grass is hard to digest. That's North America simmental cow why cows chew an average of 50 times per minute – a total of 30, 000 t...imes per day. Even if we humans really make an effort, we generally don't chew a morsel of food more than 30 times. Cows produce over 150 liters of saliva per day as a result. This makes them very thirsty, so they also drink a lot of water: up to 180 liters per day. This is equivalent to a large bathtub filled to the top. If they are very thirsty, they can even drink 25 liters per minute. read more

Not only can they solve puzzles, but they actually really enjoy them. If they work out how to open a gate with a button, they jump up and down and frolic around. read more
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
