Do you know that squirrels also plant trees? No, right? But, it is a fact! Don’t be surprised, let me explain it to you.
Actually, squirrels sometimes carry excess nuts, fruit seed while taking it to their homes and accidentally they drop some of them on the land. Then, that seed goes inside the earth by trampling over, rain etc and sprouts as a new plant. Thus, they plant a tree. Amazing!!

16. Space is absolutely ‘Silent’.
There can be some noise in the library, but ultimately, there is no sound in free space. It is so because there is no medium present in free space for the transfer of sound waves. We can easily communicate to each other because air is present as a transfer medium for sound waves on Earth.
17. Fishes can’t blink both of their eyes.
It is absolutely right that fishes can’t blink their eyes because they lack the eyelids and interestingly Shark is the only fish which can blink both of their eyes because of a thin membrane cover over their eyes.
Also, fishes lack tear secreting glands in eyes. What about the moisture? It is provided by the sea water itself. How Amazing!!
18. Sleeping with one eye open!!
Dolphins can sleep while opening one of their eyes and opening one eye. This amazing ability is of immense importance for them because this helps them to stay awake while sleeping. Yes, it is true.

The average time for falling asleep after laying on the bed or chair is about 8-10 minutes. Most of the people fall asleep within 8 minutes of laying on the bed. In this time, they mostly think about how the whole day spent and somewhat about the next day.

If you wear headphones or air pods usually, then this fact is only for you. Do you know that if you continuously wear your headphones and listen music (or anything), then it can greatly increase the number of bacteria in your ear. Approximately by 800-1000 times more than before.
Don’t wear headphones for long if you don’t want this to you!
23. You can die if you touch an electric eel.
It is 100% sure that if you touched a special eel, you’ll die because not all electric eels can produce such a large amount of shock. But, calm down, these types of eels are found in Amazon Rainforest.

25. Here comes a short yet sad fact!
Approximately, 20% of the total Amazon Rainforest/basin was totally burned in the 2019 Brazilian Fires which killed about 1 Billion animals. Whether they are koalas or kangaroos.

26. Think of the English word ending with ‘mt’.
Can’t guess, right? The only world in the English language which ends with the letters ‘mt’ is “Dreamt”. Isn’t it special?
No other word in English ends with these two letters. Try searching in the dictionary or Google it.
