Amazing oddities of nature

Nature is full of secrets and quirks, fortunately for us, they are extremely interesting. In the list below you will find some of the most amazing natural phenomena worth seeing.

1.

Miracle Mouse
Amazing oddities of nature
Strange fact: a mouse can go through a hole with a diameter like an ordinary ballpoint pen.
In the summer, mice live on the street, but as soon as there is a cold outside, they tend to warm up in our homes. Due to their soft skull and ability to nibble, the hole with a ballpoint pen diameter is large enough for them to be completely in it. Once inside, they will gnaw almost everything, including concrete, lead and plastic. All in order to support their ever-growing teeth in the length necessary for them.
Contrary to popular belief, mice do not like cheese, but eat it occasionally. Mice can jump up to a height of 46 centimeters, they can swim and move vertically, as well as up and down. To protect your home from mice, check all the small holes with a ballpoint pen, if it enters the hole, then the mouse can penetrate your home.

2.

Square eyes
Amazing oddities of nature
Strange fact: unlike most creatures, goats have rectangular pupils.
We always imagine that the pupils are round, since we see them like this most often (in humans), but in goats (like most hoofed animals) the “slits” in the eyes are horizontal, which take on an almost rectangular shape.
This gives the goats the opportunity to see within a radius of 320 - 340 degrees, which means that they can see almost everything around them without having to move their head (people see within a radius of 160-210 degrees). Therefore, animals with rectangular eyes can better see at night due to the presence of large pupils, which during the day can be tightly closed to limit the access of light. It is interesting that octopuses have rectangular pupils.

3.

Blind horses
Amazing oddities of nature
Strange fact: horses cannot see directly in front of them.
Horses have a very wide field of vision, moreover, they have the largest eyes among all land mammals and can see within a radius of up to 350 degrees.
But the horses have two white spots: the first is directly in front of them, the second is directly behind the head.Seeing the details well, the horses are completely blind to red, and their eyesight is 20/33 (compared to 20/20 human perfect vision).

4.

Sick rats
Amazing oddities of nature
Strange fact: rats can't tear.
The rats are unable to tear due to the fact that there is a partition between their two stomachs, and also because of the inability to control the muscles of the diaphragm, which are necessary for this action. Neither rabbits nor guinea pigs can do this either.
This makes rats particularly susceptible to poisoning. Because of this inability, the rats will first try the food to see if it makes them feel bad (they don’t know how to vomit, but they may feel nauseous). If all is well, then they begin to eat fully.

5.

Gorilla Gorilla Gorilla
Amazing oddities of nature
Strange fact: the gorilla’s scientific name is “Gorilla Gorilla Gorilla”.
First of all, it is necessary to understand that this is the scientific name of a certain type of gorillas - the western lowland gorilla (this type is the most common, it is you who most likely will see it in the zoo).
But for some reason the poor “gorillas” have become names for other types, that is, if the species is not “gorilla gorilla gorilla”, then it is “gorilla gorilla dihli”, “gorilla beringay beringay”, “gorilla beringay graey” and so on d.

6.

Killer swans
Amazing oddities of nature
Strange fact: a swan can break a man’s hand.
The next time you want to feed the beautiful swans, and then pat them on the back, you should not do this. Swans are extremely aggressive in defending their chicks, and will use their incredibly powerful wings to fend off all potential threats, including people.
The wingspan of their wings is almost 3 meters. In 2001, a young man in Ireland, trying to provoke a swan, broke his leg, the next year, another man stayed with broken arms for the same reason.

7.

Fragile spider
Amazing oddities of nature
Strange fact: if you drop a tarantula, it will “break”.
First of all, it is worth noting that if only you are not allergic to the poison of a tarantula, then these spiders are harmless to people, despite the fact that their bite is quite painful. Some tarantulas can “remove hairs” from their paws, stinging a person, which also causes great discomfort. Now back to the weirdness.
The tarantula has an exoskeleton (which means finding it on the outside), like crayfish and crabs. They renew their exoskeleton constantly in the supine position.At such a moment it is better to stay away from them, because, because of the vulnerability of their condition during this period, they will attack everyone who will be a potential threat. Due to the excessive fragility of the exoskeleton, the tarantula, which fell even from a small height, dies.

8.

Dangerous nut
Amazing oddities of nature
Strange fact: nutmeg is poisonous.
Nutmeg is a hallucinogenic “preparation” that is regularly used to flavor custard for cakes and muffins, as well as for the preparation of many other delicious dishes. But it is also a poison that can kill you if you are exposed to side effects from drug use. Getting 2 grams of nutmeg into the body will cause you the side effects that are possible with amphetamines, namely: fever, nausea, headaches.
The ingestion of 7.5 grams of nutmeg in the body will cause cramps, and 10 grams will cause hallucinations. If you eat whole nutmeg, it can lead to “nutmeg psychosis,” which is accompanied by confusion and the presence of a sense of doom.Two deaths from nutmeg were reported (in 1908 and in 2001).

9.

Reeling leaves
Amazing oddities of nature
Strange fact: the plant desmodium is able to quickly "move" the leaves even in the absence of wind.
Desmodium is a tropical plant that grows in Asia and has a unique ability to shake its leaves (they quickly rotate around its axis, “bouncing” up and down).
There are several other plants with similar “skills” (such as, for example, the Venus trap), but this plant is the most bizarre and least known. It should be noted that when it says “quickly” in relation to plants, it is not very fast, but certainly visible to the naked eye.

10.

Hot beetle
Amazing oddities of nature
Strange fact: during the defense, the bombardier beetle “shoots” with boiling liquid.
The incredibly complex in structure, the bombardier beetle has an amazing and unique ability: with a potential threat, it shoots with an incredible speed boiling chemical fluid that accumulates in its stomach.
Fluid is a combination of hydrogen peroxide and hydroquinone, which combine in the spider's stomach and form a chemical reaction. The fluid is fatal for small insects, and its contact with a person can be very painful.
