|MadSci Network: Evolution|
I recently asked about your opinion of strange animals. What I meant was this. I am curious about the diversity of life on this planet, especially unusual things. I have heard of Vampire Finches, I think in Galopagos maybe but anyway, they probably used to eat the bugs off of the Sea Gulls that live around there, but now the Finches pierce the skin and eat the blood of the gulls. I like this sort of thing because its unusual and sort of unique. And the Platapus and Echidna, the male Platapus is poisonous and both are mammals that lay eggs. And the Hydra I have heard is basicaly imortal because it is such a simple organism. And that lizard with the third eye. So I was wondering if anyone would tell me of animals that are as strange and unique as these others. (If I am wrong about any of these animals please let me know, I hope PBS hasn't lied to me about the Vampire Finches. Thanks for answering. This site is awesome. Phil
