Why do bees die when they sting?? ๐Ÿ˜ต๐Ÿ˜ฎ

  You feel pain, itching and annoyance when bees stings. That's because the bees jabs its barbed stinger into your skin and release some venom, which contains proteins that cause pain and can affect your immune system and skin cells.   Figure 1: Bee stings apparatus, credits: frontiers But it's nothing compared to what the poor tiny bee has to go through. You'll be fine after a few hours, but the bee won't๐Ÿ˜ต๐Ÿ˜ฎ . Honey bees don't strike people unless they feel threatened or if you step on them mistakenly. The real issue is that the bee can't get its barb stinger out of your skin after stinging you. The only way to break free is to leave the stinger. The stinger is not only a good defense mechanism, but it also contains parts of the bee's digestive tract, nerves, and muscles, which are all necessary for the bee to function properly. So, after losing everything, this tiny creature perishes. Autotomy is the process of leaving a body component behind as a sort o

Have you ever thought that parrots can talk like human!!!!๐Ÿ™†๐Ÿ™†

 According to study on monkeys vocal tract, the result shows that they have strikingly similar vocal structure to humans. But despite all these similarities, they can’t speak so here’s a question. Compared to monkeys, birds are nothing like us. Some bird can talking like us, How??๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Lips aren't found on birds. They are toothless. Their "nose" isn't the same as ours, but they do have something that we don't. They have a completely different vocal box than we do. It's known as a Syrinx. They actually have two voice boxes, one for each of them. The lower respiratory system of birds and humans is formed like an upside down slingshot. The trachea, or windpipe, is on top, and the lungs are on the bottom, and these two sections carry air in and out. The larynx, which is placed above the trachea in humans, is the voice box. It has "folds" in the vocal folds that vibrate when air passes through them, producing sound. Humans shape that sound mostly with thei

Bonsai trees can cost millions of dollars๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ, why is it so??

Bonsai is an art form that requires years of training and centuries of dedication. At 2012 International Bonsai Convention, a tree was on sale for 100 million yen, just under a million dollars.   So what is it that makes bonsai so expensive? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Bonsai is a art of dwarfing a regular tree to create a perfect miniature representation of nature in a small pot. It has long history, originating in China, the practice of creating tiny trees and landscapes appeared as far back as the sixth century. Years of cutting, wiring, repotting, and grafting have hindered the trees' growth. Every day, the plants must be checked and frequently watered. The expertise required to grow these trees has a significant impact on their worth. They're frequently bent and twisted into shape, positioned around rocks, and even grouped together with other trees to create a miniature forest. Many of these techniques require years to master, and any errors made can can result in permanently ruining the shape.

Did you know that the Atlantic and Pacific oceans never mix!!

  When you look at the seas and oceans on the map you might think that they just flow into each other. well, you will be amazed at how realistic the borders between them are! you will be wonder What could interfere with its mixing? ๐Ÿ˜ฒ The actual things is that water can be different too. The water of the Atlantic and Pacific oceans have different density and chemical make-up, the level of salinity and other qualities. We can see by their colour that they are far for being the same. The borders between two bodies of water with different physical and biological characteristics are known as ocean clines. ๐Ÿ’ง๐Ÿ’ง Haloclines๐Ÿ’ง๐Ÿ’ง They are borders between water with different salinity. This is what we see when the Atlantic and Pacific oceans meet. The famous explorer Jacques Cousteau found this when he was deep diving in the strait of Gibraltar. The layers of water with different salinity looked like they were divided with a transparent film, and each layer had its own flora and fauna. Halocline
