What's Your Most Extraordinary Fact About the Animal Kingdom?

Mine is how powerful sperm whale codas is (codas is the name given to the echolocation/clicking sounds you hear). 
It's 230 decibels
That's about how powerful the sound is from 30,000 tons of TNT. 
At those levels a divers body heats up.

Can anyone top that?











Bilateral * .. * humans access to metaphysical-1, mind/intellect/concepts.

I think about something { occupied space } ergo I exist as a something { occupied space }.





--> @mustardness
How convenient.  
My sperm are whales and I'm an alpha male.
--> @Reece
How convenient.
Yeah, truth, convenient or not,  is always the optimal response.

1}  objectively harvest information { occupied space bits/quanta } and metaphsycial-1, mind/intellect/conceptual bits

2} sort the two kinds of information,

3} winnow out patterns and principles,

4} subjectively apply those patterns and principles to technologies the sustain the ecological environment that sustains all biologic life and integrity of Universe.  Thank you Bucky Fuller (*..*)

Aren't your facts 'micro-irrelevant' to the question at hand?

--> @Reece
Aren't your facts 'micro-irrelevant' to the question at hand?

No they are not and you offer nothing of significance to suggest they are. 

Please check with your ego,  at the door/portal,  if you think you have some rational, logical common sense, that,  adds to or invalidates my givens, as stated. Thanks

Don't many animals have access to 'mind/intellect/concepts'.
I wouldn't consider that extraordinary

Yes, I agree they do and especially cetacceans, however, humans degree of access to metaphysical-1, mind/intellect/concepts is so much greater.

You apparently do not recognize that fact. Or do and choose to ignore it? PLease check your with your ego at the door/portal.

You do not apparrently consider degree of access to metaphysical-1, mind/intellect/concepts far more than other animals, you do think humans degree of access is extraordinary.  Again, I think you ego is blocking your ability to concede how extraordinary, and to what degree, humans access affects/effects all existance on this planet.

Cetacceans are not killing off humans but humans are killing off many animals from Earth.

Yes, the influenza virus can kill off many humans, but a virus does not build ships to kill off the whales.

Bacteria porliferate fast than any other biologic and they have potential to kill off all humans on planet, however, humans had and still have that potential to kill off all humans on Earth with nuclear weapons and messing around with genetics, bacteria viruses etc, while at same time building space-ships that take us to the moon.

If a bacteria or cetaccean builds a spaceship that will take humans to the moon, I will be extraordinarily impressed. Wouldnt you?  Maybe not.

Yeah, I still wouldn't call that extraordinary. It's like saying what the fastest land animal is. Enough Said.

No not enough said. That is your ego speaking. This is my ego speaking.

Access to metaphyscial-1, mind/intellect/concepts create technologies that,

1} can easily capture cheetahs,

2} go faster on land, water and air than cheetahs,

3} study cheetahs at the RNA-DNA level, ergo,

4} assist cheetah should they get sick,

5} protect cheetahs from humanity.

All of these is so much more extra-ordinary ---not common-- than what is found in animal kingdom.

Your in denial of the most extra-ordinary aspects of human animal, within the animal kingdom.

Most animals have one, two three special-case skills.

Humans access to metaphysical-1, mind/intellect/concepts  is there special-case skill that allows them to step-outside of one special-case ability.

They can now run faster, fly higher, swim deeper than any other animal via their mental abilities ergo they become broad-based eneralizing specialists of all sciences, all  traits, all circumstances etc.

Bats { air } and dolphins/porpoises { water }  make highest frequency /\/\/\/ sound waves in their respective medium and that mathematical frequency ^v^v is close to the mathematical frequency of EMradiaion { photons } as micro-waves Ex micro-wave oven frequencies are just slightly longer that heat { infra-red photons }.

Turtles can breathe air from water not with gills but through their buttholes.


The turtle is my totem animal. They stand for long live and perseverance.

Cool, I didnt know that tidbit.

Some, most or all jellyfish use same opening for food source and waste expelling.

Jellies may be older than sponges yet they are more complex, so simple-to-complex evolution turned on its head if that is true.

They may have evolved at same time period, just differrent branches of tree of life.

Black Holes > RNA-DNA  coded bits { EMradiation } > RNA-DNA molecules  > complex-to-simple evolution dispersion > less complex molecules ex left handed amino-acids found in metorites etc
--> @mustardness
That reminds me. Some animals are biologically immortal. Meaning they don't die of old age. Although they can die of other causes such as food scarcity, disease and injury.

The Immortal jellyfish is one such animal.  

There's probably a list out there you can have a look at. I think crocodiles are also biologically immortal. Not sure.

--> @Reece
Yeah reece, I saw that program also.  The kind revert back to their fetus-like, stem cell origins and start all over again. Showed asian { chiniese } man doing the studies and how he came to udnerstand the process.




--> @mustardness
What's the program called? Might be interesting.
--> @Reece
Oh gee I dont know. It was months or year or more ago.  I'm on cheapo package so it may have when I got free science or discover or something like that for a few days.  MIght have been PBS which I always get.
--> @mustardness
No doubt.

Bolas spiders lasso their prey.

Bolas spiders lasso their prey.
When I was cattle rancher and tried to lasso cows, I always fell off because my horse would be scared
sciittery by lasso twirling around would keep jerking left as I was leaning right throw lasso fromy my right hand.

I eventually just lassoed cows from my running with them.  Once or bull-dogged a cow but they were not in open field.

Ive also lassoed --or at least looped them--  rattle snakes and copperheads with PVC pipe and electric wire.

Believe it or not, a blue whale can make a fart bubble so big that a horse could fit inside it. Bet you didn't know that.   :)

Fart = methane and methane is a sign for biological life.

...tthe Great Dark Spot is apparently shallow and confined to Jupiter's high stratosphere." ... "High-energy electrons that hit Jupiter's atmosphere not only cause auroras, but also break apart methane (CH4), which is more abundant on Jupiter than it is on Earth," says West"...
