Asked by Laila Emard in Dogs, Animal Life


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

   User Avatar 
   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.

Asked in Animal Life, Dog Behavior


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

   User Avatar 
   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!

Asked in Animal Life, Biggest, Strongest, Fastest and Other Extremes


What is the strongest animal?

   User Avatar 
   The Strongest Animal The 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. 1. Elephant 2. Polar bear 3. Rhinoceros 4. Hippopotamus 5. Grizzly bear 6. Hippo elephan the rhinoceros beetle This is maybe the most accurate list. I've calculated average weight, maximum weight, average height, maximum height, average length, maximum length, speed and bite force (this include trunk power for elephants, horn power for rhinos...) I know that giraffe is a little suprise. Rank Name Points 1 African elephant 35.81 2 Polar bear 35.14 3 Asian elephant 33.51 4 Giraffe 33.28 5 Hippo 33.02 6 White rhino 32.20 7 Kodiak bear 32.19 8 Saltwater crocodile 32.16 9 Walrus 32.11 10. Grizzly bear 32.01 10.anaconda 9.bears 8.sea lion 7.king cobra 6.caracal 7.lynx 6.bob cat 5.hippo 4.elephant 3.lion 2.moniter lizard 1.siberian tiger it is a tiger 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... 1. Elephant 2. Polar bear 3. Rhinoceros 4. Hippopotamus 5. Grizzly bear

Asked in Animal Life, Birds


Do birds have the same bowel movements?

   User Avatar 
   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.

Asked in Animal Life, Botany or Plant Biology


What if plants could walk?

   User Avatar 
   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. ****** The ecosystem of a place would be changing every now and then

Asked by Giles Wiegand in Animal Life, Guinness World Records


What is the oldest living land animal?

   User Avatar 
   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.

Asked in Animal Life


How does a biological clock influence behaviors?

   User Avatar 
   The biological clock is the sequence of behavioral changes every 24 hours. It can be altered, but it takes a while for the body to become accustomed to it. There are high points and low points in a biological clock. The high point is usually from 3pm to 5pm, while the low point is from 3am to 5am, although they might vary. Behavior is influenced by biological clocks in the way you function throughout the day, whether it be perky and energetic during your high point, or gloomy and tired during your low point.

Asked in Animal Life, Rainforests


How do rainforest animals lay eggs?

   User Avatar 
   Well, first the female gets pregnant, then after a couple weeks or months there about to lay eggs.They go find a hidden spot to lay their eggs. Some moms will stay, some will leave and come back. (The more babies an animal has, the shorter time the mother stays with the young and vice versa.) It's mostly like the animals in the woods do except the rainforest has more plants and trees.
