What I did:I always wondered why dogs cannot eat chocolates and if they eat them they would die. To find out the answer to my question I decided to read up about it on the internet.
The chocolates that we eat contains theobromine which is potentially toxic to the dogs. Theobromine is an alkalied that acts as a stimulant like caffeine does. Dogs, however, do not have a specific enzyme that humans use to break down theobromine. Thus, the theobromine can overstimulate the central nervous and cordiovascular system in dogs, causing them to have increased blood pressure, vomitting, dehydration, abdominal pains, seizures and even death. But the size and the breed of dog matters in the amount of theobromine it needs to reach the toxic level.
What I did:
I wanted to know more about nature and animals. So, I went to Science Daily to search for articles related to animals when I found this interesting article about a wasp rediscovered after many years.
This rediscovered wasp was last found 101 years ago. The wasp feeds on the wood - boring beetle. This wood- boring beetle feeds on the black lotus tree which provides strong wood. This beetle was considered a serious pest that discouraged the planting of the black lotus plant. This also played an important role in American history. Thus the wasp will now allow the plantation of black lotus.
What i did:
I was looking through the internet for interesting articles about animals when I found this article about tadpoles that hatch in seconds to escape predators. It sounded really interesting and I started reading the articles.
Tadpoles of red- eyed tree frog hatch when they sense danger. They come out just in time to escape other predators like snakes. This has been proved by a big research.
The sea is a home as well as a toilet too many of the marine animals. The whale mainly contributes to this. The whale which is huge in size urinates about 196 gallons a day. Even though this sound dirty this acts as an nutrient to the sea.
