(1) In Croatia, scientists discovered that lampposts were falling down because a chemical in the urine of male dogs was rotting the metal.

(2) Infant Pygmy Marmosets babble to develop their language skills, similarly to the way human babies babble.

(3) The Mayans and Aztecs symbolised every tenth day with the dog, and those born under this sign were believed to have outstanding leadership skills.

(4) Remember that saber-toothed squirrel from Ice Age that paleontologists thought was completely ridiculous and based on nothing.

(5) Two-toed sloths cannot shiver to stay warm like other mammals due to their low metabolic rates and little muscle tissue.

(6) African buffalo herds display voting behavior, in which individuals register their travel preference by standing up, looking in one direction and then lying back down. Only adult females can vote.

(7) The color red doesn’t really make bulls angry; they are color-blind.

(8) Polar bears generally lead solitary lives. Some adult and sub-adult males, however, sometimes form friendships which can last weeks or sometimes even years. These males may travel, feed, and play-fight together.

(9) Some Reindeer have knees that make a clicking sound when they walk. It helps them keep together in a blizzard.

(10) The Chameleon can focus its eyes seperately to watch two objects at once.

@jlufer, my friend ....... I think you need to take some rest. Your voting power is now under 25%. If you do not vote for 4 consecutive days then you will gain 100% VP again. And then my advice is to do not give 100% upvote anyone except your own posts. If you upvote me with 30% VP then it's enough. And if you vote your own post when you reach 100% VP then your 1 vote will be worth upto $10 (falcuting due to steem price volatility). So, I think you have to take some rest. Only post your articles, but, do not cast vote anyone until you reach 100%. I'll upvote your posts daily.

Thank you :)

Many thanks for the advice dear friend @royalmacro I will see how I can implement it, You are very right thank you very much
I wish you a beautiful day
