A Tour to Spellbinding Wildlife Moments of 2021

Here are a few animal discoveries that got attention in 2021.

Earth is an incredible place, bursting with wonders and mysteries. Researchers and wildlife photographers continue to show us how amazing life on our planet really is. In 2021, amid increasing climate changes, disasters, and the urge to social distancing due to COVID19, when sometimes coverage of new science discoveries seems impossible, researchers mesmerized us with some astounding news.

Here are a few animal discoveries that got attention in 2021.

Sea slugs

Some of these creatures have the astounding capability of detaching their head part from their bodies, and then the head grows a new body. Most slugs do this when their previous body has been infected with life-threatening parasites.

Giant tortoises

These animals may look subtle and soft from their appearance, but they can prove you wrong once hunting is concerned. A video shows their savage behavior as a tortoise chomps down a baby bird fell to the ground. An interesting fact about tortoises is that they are solitary roamers, which means they become independent of their mother as soon as they hatch and explore the world all by themselves.

Somehow these animals look gigantic and clumsy, but they can use their trunks extremely tactfully and with cunning dexterity to do basic tasks like picking up things or twisting things, etc.; their trunks might look big and powerful. Still, they can manage to hold and pick up small and delicate things without damaging them. The elephants’ trunks have almost 40,000 muscles, making it their main organ for smelling, breathing, touching, and grabbing things.

The Bird with the Broken Beak

A parrot named Bruce captured our hearts with its charm this year. Despite his beak being broken, he has learned to cope with life by using several different tools to help himself. An example is how he scraps hard food against other objects to soften it and make it easier for itself to eat.

Naughty thieves

Birds are literally always on the hunt for anything they can find to build their nests. From twigs and leaves to tiny pebbles and straws, they can use almost anything for building their homes. One such group of birds called Pharids stole hair from dogs and inculcated them in their nests!

  1. Every weekend i used to pay a quick visit this web page, for the reason that i wish for enjoyment,
    since this this website conations actually pleasant funny stuff too.

  2. Good day! I know this is kinda off topic but I was
    wondering which blog platform are you using for this website?
    I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers
    and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be great
    if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  3. Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my
    iPad and tested to see if it can survive a thirty foot
    drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and
    she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

  4. Howdy! Would you mind if I share your blog with my facebook group?

    There’s a lot of people that I think would really enjoy your content.
    Please let me know. Many thanks

  5. First of all I want to say great blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not
    mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself
    and clear your head prior to writing. I’ve had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10
    to 15 minutes are generally wasted just trying to figure out
    how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Thanks!

  6. I got this website from my buddy who informed me
    concerning this website and now this time I am browsing this web site and reading very informative content here.

  7. Aw, this was a really good post. Taking the time and actual effort to make
    a really good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate a lot and don’t manage to
    get anything done.

  8. Hey there! I’m at work browsing your blog from my new iphone!
    Just wanted to say I love reading your blog and look forward
    to all your posts! Keep up the excellent work!
