    That's quite interesting when you consider that many theories suggest that life itself started in the oceans and moved on to land. So technically, land is our second home so who knows as to who stayed back down there

    A goat can swallow a shepherd whole and may eat as many as 150 kids in a six-month period.

    Goats expel their internal organs towards enemies as a form of self defense.

    All goats in the world are linked together as a single living organism, and reality is warped and shaped by the combined will of every goat. They started out as simple microorganisms, whom orchestrated the downfall of the dinosaurs and took a form they deem fit to plot the destruction of mankind, to prepare for the commencing of the Golden Age of Farm Animals. All hail goats.

    The very poisonous Blue Ring Octopus is small enough to climb inside a tennis ball.

    I knowww <33 they're like kitties! Lollipop was like de-skunked so she could be an ambassador skunk so she's essentially a cat.

    Caecilians are crazy cool and one of the least-studied groups of vertebrates on the planet just because they're so rare. They're the third, little-known family of amphibians in addition to frogs/toads and salamanders, and they're crazy hard to find because they live underground exclusively in tropical climates. One of the professor's at my university was a leading expert on them but I never got the chance to handle a specimen myself.

    If there's one bird I do NOT want to meet face to face its the Cassowary. Dang bird is one reason why Australia is dangerous, its known to attack humans, and unlike other birds.. this one can kill.

    Cooooooool. I had never heard of caecilians until seeing this vid. Worm-looking amphibians that give birth to live young? Super fascinating. I was thinking it was some sort of tadpole-stage frog but pretty cool to know about a whole other species. *looks up why they're called caecilians*

    The name caecilian derives from the Latin word caecus, meaning "blind", referring to the small or sometimes nonexistent eyes. The name dates back to the taxonomic name of the first species described by Carl Linnaeus, which he named Caecilia tentaculata.

    Interesting!

    I loved this episode :D But my fav one is where Coyote found an iguana in a coconut tree.

    Well that makes it even more clear why Coyote called them living dinosaurs.

    A Rhino's horn is actually an extension of it's own skin.

    This is correct. Keratin is also found in less concentrated amounts in the skin too, though.

    Only fishes and amphibians do not have keratin in their skins, I guess.
