Amazing Stories of Animal Phenomenon
There are many phenomenons happen in this earth. We can't deny about this. Like yesterday, I watched amazing news on my television reveal some animal phenomenon. If my last hub told about the rain phenomenon but this time I want to show you another phenomenon related with animal. Nature has a big secrets, I heard as a human we have to reveal this as a good purpose like for knowledge. If we know the secret of nature, I thought we have more grateful to God. That’s make the earth more colorful with anything like this. I know most of us know about these phenomenon, But I want to remind again how this phenomenon so beautiful. There’s no end if we learn about animal. Especially for us who have pets in our home. How we taking care of them, feeding them, giving drink, etc. The more we care to our animal, they'll love to us, right.
This hub will talk about weird animal phenomenon in the world. Why this hub so special for me. Because of animal world give us a big contribution.We can laugh, sad because of animal behavior. As God creations, everything which happen in the land, water even in the air, it has shown the power of God. Although most of them still become a mystery for us, but I still love all the beauty behind these phenomenons. I’ll put together all phenomenons related with animal in the land, water and in the air. Three combinations which I believe make us surprise. Personally I want to see this in person. At least I could share with all of you and we can learn a little about this phenomenon. Please continue to read.........
Goat climb trees
I know it looks impossible and this is nonsense happen in goat. I thought only for human, monkey could climb on the tree. But the theory of this totally changed 360 degree with the phenomenon happen in Morocco. But goat can do that in this country. This was naturally happened in Morocco. If you see the picture below, these goats not only climb the tree but also climb the cliff to get food.
Some theory said that all the goats do this to survive. There’s no enough food, like grass or leaves on the land. So for alternative and they have to survive, there’s no option besides doing this for their life. As we know the goat is one of animal which is difficult to walk in the extreme place like uphill area. But this time we can see many goats climb the trees, even climb the cliff to get food.
These goats climb trees to eat the fruit of the Argan tree, similar to olive fruit. The local farmers also get the benefit from this phenomenon. They always follow this goat flocks as they move from one tree to another. They do this job not to see the oddity, but rather trying to get the bean seeds from the remaining fruits that normally don't eaten by goats. The local farmer usually used the bean seeds to make Argan oil and other cosmetic ingredients. This oil has been used by people for hundreds of years. I am glad to hear about this news, because from this phenomenon the human also get the benefit. They have responsibility to take care all the trees, because it’s like a treasure for them. Argan tree is increasingly difficult to be found because it often plundered or stolen. I hope the best for goats and the local farmer too.
Flying fish phenomenon
What was usually did by the fish? I thought we all know the answer is swimming. But have you ever seen the flying fish. This could be a unique phenomenon. I want to say again that impossible for the fish to fly. This is like a violation of natural law, where the fish should swim. But anything could happen, my friend. If God want it happen, so this happen naturally without manipulation. Exocoetidae or flying fish are found in all major oceans, mainly in tropical and subtropical waters in the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian oceans. The main characteristics of the most prominent is a large fin chest, allowing these fish glide briefly and flying through the air above the water surface, to escape from predators. The launch distance usually around 50 meters, but they could use a boost on the edge of the wave, it can reach up to a distance of at least 400 meters. Wow….I never thought about this before.
Flying fish has large fin, about 30-45 cm. The top speed up to 60 km / h and a distance of 30-50 m, and some have estimated could reach hundreds of meters, with the help of the waves. Record for the longest flight of flying fish is 45 seconds. The large fin has a function like wings to keep it floating above the waves. They also use aerodynamic body to maintain speed. In several species of flying fish, there are wings on the back. It helps them to fly. From this species they could perform beautiful attraction. Although they don't have ability to fly in distance far, flying fish can fly together, with a unique formation to travel up to 400 meters.
From the biological expert said that they have several reasons to fly and this is became an answer to the weirdness that happened on flying fish.
- They have to fly as a language or a tool to communicate each other. That’s why they also love to fly in the beautiful formation.
- The second reason is to avoid some predators, such as: mackerel, tuna, swordfish and marlin. So they can get out of the water surface. And also because the action to escape or avoid the threat of bird beak and fishermen in Japan and Barbados.
- The last reason is as a communication tool to show that the area is a territorial of flying fish group.
I hope we can see the flying fish phenomenon if we pass the ocean or traveling by cruise ship maybe. Please enjoy the video below.
The Black Sun Phenomenon, Millions Birds dancing on the Sky
This is time I’ll share about the beautiful phenomenon which is happen on the air. This is looks a miracle while we watch this phenomenon. This is like a beautiful dancing by millions birds on the sky. This phenomenon happened in Denmark. But I heard that this phenomenon also happened in Scotland. My friends……. You can give correction if I am wrong. The people love to called this Black Sun. Black Sun is a phenomenon that occurs in spring and autumn when large flocks of black starlings (sturnus vulgaris) gather to form a pattern in the sky. This phenomenon approximately happen one half hour before sunset, the number could reach more than a million gathered from various directions and assembled to form the amazing formations. You can see the phenomenon in the early spring along the marshy land in western Denmark during the month of March to mid April. These birds migrate from the south and spent time in pastures for food and sleeping on the grass at night. Why this called "black sun" because of the formations of millions birds blocking the sun. And why these birds have a beautiful formation like a dancing on the sky? Because there is a leader and all the birds behind have to follow the leader. The second reason is they always keep each others from predators. You can enjoy the video of this phenomenon below.
Why all these phenomenons happen in the beautiful world? because animals are more sensitive to changes in nature and because their lives depend on the nature. We have to grateful with any kind of God creations. They give us happiness. It’s good to remind us how we have to care each other, always give support and caring with others. If the animals can do that, why we don’t, right. I hope we can see these phenomenon in person….amen
