#1: No Sex Discrimination
It’s time when we humans should learn lessons from Armadillos who have 4 babies at a time and are all the same sex. Maybe the ratio of women to men will receive a boost by it.
#2: Green Waters
85% of plant life is found in the ocean and every General science teacher has been teaching the students that the Amazon forest has the maximum amount of vegetation.
#3: Wonders of Oxygen
Not only does it enable animals to live, oxygen can also turn a lobster’s colorless blood to blue when exposed to oxygen.
#4: Sweet lemons
The small yellow colored lemons are known to contain more sugar than strawberries.
#5: No More Power Cuts
Nature has also provided man with different creatures carrying the extreme level of uniqueness such as electric eels that are capable of venting a discharge of 600 volts.
#6: A Desired Flower
The largest individual flower on Earth is from a plant called Rafflesia arnoldii. Its flowers reach up to 1 meter (3 feet) in diameter and weigh around 10kg.
#7: The Burning After Effects
One of the most dangerous yet interesting fact about Nature is that around three quarters of the increase in CO2 levels from human activity over the last 20 years has come from the burning up of various fossil fuels. Another reason for increase in CO2 is deforestation (cutting trees for construction and other purposes)
#8: 6mm is Enough!
During the summer months, mice will generally live outside and remain confronted there. But, with the drop in the temperature they seek the warmth of our houses. Thanks to their soft skulls and gnawing ability, a size of a ballpoint pen (6mm – 1/4 inch) is large enough for them to enter. Once inside, they constantly nibble at virtually anything – including concrete, lead, and plastic, so as to keep their ever-growing teeth at a convenient length. Opposing the belief, mice aren’t fond of cheese – but will eat it on occasion. Mice can jump up to 46cm (18 inches), swim, and travel vertically or upside-down. In order to mice proof your house, we must watch out for all the openings as big as the tip of a ball point pen.
#9: Wonderful Eyes
We all imagine pupils to be round but goats have horizontal slits which are nearly rectangular when amplified, giving the goats a vision covering 320-340 degrees; which means they can see virtually all around them without having to move. Consequently, animals with rectangular eyes can see better at night due to having larger pupils that can be closed more tightly during the day to restrict light. Octopuses are also known to have rectangular pupils.
#10: Two Spots
Horses are handicapped with two blind spots – the first is directly in front of them and the other is directly behind their head.
Nature not only contains plantations but also animals of all sorts. Most times humans tend to underestimate what animals can do due to which humans can face consequences as well, either positive or negative. A surprising fact is that tigers are the most vengeful animals out there, they make sure to take revenge on those who do them wrong in any way. In addition, a few amazing facts about frogs are that the gender of frogs can be identified by looking at their ears, which can be useful for students studying and doing research. Moreover, frogs can jump 20 times higher than their height which seems to be an interesting fact however, less known by humans. Furthermore, this is not a commonly known fact but ants can weigh more than humans if combined. A little something about birds that is unknowingly surprising is that owls don't have eyeballs. Moreover, gorillas can catch a human cold and other illnesses that are known to be on humans.

Mind Blowing facts of Nature:
1 There's a fungus that bleeds.
Found all across the United States, particularly in the Pacific Northwest has a pretty unmistakable appearance, particularly when it's young.
This fungus exudes a thick, dark red sap across a white cap, earning it numerous nicknames, from "strawberries and cream," to "devil's tooth," to "bleeding tooth fungus." Fortunately, neither the fungus nor the sap are poisonous, but they're both said to be inedibly bitter. So we suggest staying away.
2 The Low's pitcher-plant is a toilet and food source all in one.
You've probably like the Venus flytrap, but the Nepenthes lowii (or the Low's pitcher-plant) has moved away from eating animals, to instead feasting on what they leave behind.
3 Heat is the deadliest weather condition.
Tornadoes, hurricanes, and flooding can devastate entire towns at once, but the weather condition that proves deadliest to humans is actually heat.
4 In space, metal can weld on its own.
On Earth, you need heat to fuse metal, but in space, two pieces of the same kind of metal will fuse together with only a little pressure. The process is called , and it happens because of the lack of atmosphere.
5 Bats save us billions of dollars a year.
Bats tend to get a bad rap. The truth is, they gobble up lots of troublesome insects. In fact, they're so good at keeping pests away from our food crops that they save U.S. farmers alone at least 3.7 billion on pesticides every year. So bats are actually a significant factor in our agricultural economy.
6 Cardinals owe their bright red color to plants.
The red feathers of the Northern Cardinal, the bright yellow feathers on goldfinches and Yellow Warblers, and the orangish yellow feathers on male Blackburnian Warblers are all owed to a class of pigments called carotenoids7 , which are produced by plants. Birds acquire the carotenoids by eating plants or by eating something that has eaten a plant.
7 Our brains are shrinking.
Fossil evidence shows us that, over the past 10,000 years, the average human brain has shrunk about the size of a tennis ball. But that doesn't mean we're any less intelligent. Our smaller brains are probably more efficient, particularly since most of us live in settled societies and don't need to constantly be on the lookout for predators. So don't worry too much; your own brain is probably just fine.
8 Strange but true - there are 12 times more trees on Earth than stars in the Milky Way!
Scientists estimate there are between 200 - 400 billion stars in our galaxy while there are an estimated 1 trillion trees on Earth! Like the stars, trees live a long time and are truly important for life.
9 There was a time when 4 distinct human species lived at the same time
