Is it true that one human year is equal to seven dog years?

Not exactly. The first year of a dog’s life is generally closer to 15 human years, and size and breed factor into how quickly dogs age. Smaller dogs tend to live longer than larger breeds, and they don’t become “seniors” until around 10 years, but they may mature faster in the first few years of life. A bigger dog might age more slowly in the beginning but be nearing middle age at 5 years. Medium-sized dogs fall somewhere in the middle.

Do animals name each other?

There's no way to speak for all animals, but there is evidence that some animals do have ways to differentiate each other. Some parrots, for example, seem to identify themselves with specific sets of peeps, and it's possible their parents give them those names. Sweet, right?

And parrots aren't the only animals we suspect name each other. Dolphins also have distinctive whistles that function similarly to names. To prove this, researchers played a variety of whistles to a group of dolphins, and the individuals only replied to their signature sound, as if they were calling back when their name had been called.

Biggest, Strongest, Fastest and Other Extremes

What is the strongest animal?

The Strongest AnimalThe Hercules beetle is considered the strongest lifter.

It is also known as rhinoceros beetle (latin name: dynastes ercules)

This insect's avg mass is 20g yet it can lift 17 kg, that is 850 times its own mass!! Can you lift an SUV?

What about Ants and Elephants?

Well, Consider This...

Because, all animals use similar molecules in their muscles, the muscles of all animals is (very roughly) the same strength in terms of force per cross sectional area.

However, an animal twice as long typically has muscles roughly four times the cross sectional area (resulting in 4 times the force), but a body weight roughly eight times as much.

Because of that power law scaling, the bigger an animal is, the more absolute force its muscles can produce, but the less of that force can be applied to the outside world -- more of that force is required just to move the muscle itself around.

  • And so the animals that can lift the most weight relative to the total weight of the animal are generally the smallest animals -- ants, fleas, etc.
  • But the animals that can move the biggest weights (absolute) strength are generally the largest single animals -- elephants, Clydesdale horses, etc.

that is all wrong because the strongest animal is the...ant! the ant can lift way more than 20 times it's own weight if a tiger could do that then it could lift an average and of (6400 kg)14200 pounds and more! so clearly that is all wrong...

Birds

Do birds have the same bowel movements?

Because birds only have one exit for their reproductive, digestive and urinary tracts — the cloaca — their pee and waste comes from the same place at the same time. So the green or brown trace you often see in the white uric acid paste is actually the equivalent of our feces.

Dog Behavior

What does it mean when a dog turns its head left to right when your talking?

As cute as it is, the real reason dogs tilt their heads when you talk to them, or when they hear a loud noise, is simply a built-in survival instinct to utilize their ears to assess a situation. ... So next time your dog tilts its head when you talk to it, remember, it's not trying to look cute, it's just listening to you!

Guinness World Records

What is the oldest living land animal?

It’s a tortoise. He’s either 187 or 188. His name’s Jonathan.

He hatched in the Seychelles archipelago around 1832, and he moved to the island of St. Helena in 1882 (he was a gift to the governor), where he’s lived ever since.

He’s quite a guy. He’s older than cars and planes. He eats bananas, lettuce, and other fruits and vegetables. When World War I began, he was 82. He likes to listen to people play tennis.

Botany or Plant Biology

What if plants could walk?

well they don't so why worry about it? that's like asking what if pigs could fly!?

Answer 2: I guess it depends on what you mean by "walk." To me walking implies that they have legs. Snails don't have legs, so they glide rather than walk. In order for a plant to have legs, it would have to have the genetics that underpin everything a leg is, and everything that makes it more. Which is fine, because plants can have huge genomes.

More practically, if plants could literally walk, I would expect that they wouldn't need to put so much effort into creating flowers and complex fruits. That would be a problem for humans, because all we would have to eat is leaves, mushrooms, microscopic organisms, algae, and animals. And if you had to chase a lettuce plant around just for a salad, that would be a real pain. I guess eating seaweed would become more popular.
