MORE FACTS

 

Hello Monday, hope you are a good one,it is time for some facts.

The vibration of shell-like rings on the end of a rattlesnake's tail make the rattling sound. The rattle is made up of dry hard pieces of skin. As the snake grows the number of rings increases, so the louder the rattle, the bigger the snake.

Once those who lived in the desert would use sand to clean dirty dishes.

The 7-ton Stegosaurus had a 2-ounce brain

A snail can sleep for 3 years.

There are 8 peas in the average pod.

  2. Snails can sleep for 3 years? I can't stand snails and slugs. They eat my flowers and veggies and I just wish the birds would just eat them. I'd get ducks as a pet, but I have a bird dog - that wouldn't work too well.

  5. Amazing to know that snails can sleep for 3 years. Just imagine, if humans can sleep like snails, there will be less consumption of food.
