Although we think we know everything that actually exists on the planet and we know all the facts, there are still a large number of things that we have not yet heard or come into contact with. The planet we live on is a big mystery that still has to give us answers that we didn’t know until now. For some of the questions, even the scientists did not have answers, so they had to investigate to find the answer, or else to monitor the phenomenon they were aiming at in order to find the answer. And then? Then they share the answer with us to introduce us to the news they came up with.
As people grow older, we are more aware that we are learning even outside school. And for us to be wiser, we need to explore, research, study, and ask other people about many things. Life is full of mystery, that’s why we need to crave more knowledge, and that knowledge should be handy soon. With that, here are some of the did-you-know facts that you must know.
Flamingos Eat Their Food With Heads Upside Down
Due to the Flamingo’s mouth structure, they are not able to eat normally. They rustle up their food from muds and salty water, then lower their bills and use it to filter their food. The tongue of a flamingo assists in pumping their food filled with water three to four times per second, and that’s because they are filter feeders. Bills of other birds are the opposite of the Flamingos, the upper bills are not established, and the lower one is more massive. But Flamingos perfectly adapted that upside-down setting.
Resistant Starch is a superfood that you must know about
Many of us dread eating carbs, but after this information you’ll start looking for those good carbs like Resistant Starch. It is a good type of carbohydrate that can be found in certain types of food, says Supergut, where this topic is discussed in detail. It is indicated that Resistant Starch can be found in green bananas, uncooked rolled oats, potato starch, corn starch or in cooked and cooled potatoes or rice.

Moths Have No Stomachs
You thought that every living organism that exists on the planet has a digestive system, that is, they have a stomach? However, this is not the case even though it is normal for each of us that every animal or insect has a digestive system, but still things are not always as we think or assume.
There are some kinds of species that do not eat after they transpire from their sheath. For example, there is a specie called Luna. They don’t eat anything at all as they don’t have stomaches in their bodies. Their life is only a week. The only purpose of their life is to lay eggs after getting mate then die.
Rabbits Eat their Poop
If you think you know each other, believe us you don’t. There are many things that we do not know especially when it comes to the habits of animals and the way they live and behave, and here is one piece of information that is a reality, but actually not so well known.
Rabbits and hares produce two kinds of droppings, little black hard and dry ones, and the other one is softer, moist, and sticky feces, which consist of nutrients. The soft one that is chosen to eat again is known as cecotropes. Cecotropes, also called night feces, is full of valuable nutrients, such as B vitamins, protein, and fiber, all the rabbit needs. They are re-ingesting the cecotropes to reabsorb all the nutrients from the food. Since it only comprises at night, you will only be able to see the rabbit eating their stool late at night or early morning, and that process is once daily.
The 8% of Earth’s Population has One More Rib
Although biology, medicine and similar sciences that study the human body say that the facts are 100% correct, there are some 8% that say that this is not so. Those 8% are the people who have something different about them, and that is the fact that they have more ribs.
There are twenty-four ribs in every fully developed person. That means twelve ribs on one side of the body. But out of every two hundred persons, there is a person who born with one extra rib. The name of this extra rib is a vertical rib. That rib can be seen during the time of birth. It grows from the neck base and situated before the collarbone. It can either on one side of the body, which can be left or right.
In many cases, the rib doesn’t even appear in an XRay as sometimes it is just a slender filament of fiber. But the good thing is that it doesn’t create complications to the person who has it. In the case, if it squeezes near the nerves or blood vessels, it can create insensitivity of the arm. It can also cause neck pain.
