Nice post. Very interesting @royalmacro (70)

Enlightening facts @royalmacro. At the first fact, about praying mantis, I was imagining if only we humans can turn our heads 360 as well. What do you think the benefits would be?

And then there is that of chameleon, unlike the praying mantis, it can turn its eyes 360. The wonders of nature these are.

This writing very interesting
