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.

Sleep 3 years!????!!!! Lord have mercy!

That's fun to know about the pea pod.

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.

Janie Junebug said...

Sleeping for three years seems a good idea at the moment. Maybe I'm a secret snail.


Rita said...

All good ones I didn't know! :)

Nancy Chan said...

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.

Kea said...

I wish I could sleep for three hours straight, never mind three years. LOL.

I knew about sand "washing" the dishes, though, from watching an episode of the original Star Trek series as a child, decades ago. Can't think of the episode title off hand, though. :-)
