    Here you go, here are some fun facts about mosquitoes:
    - Only female mosquitoes suck on blood
    - Mossies live longer than most bugs (of course, if not being smashed by someone, haha)
    - They can drink up to three times their weight in blood
    - The man who drinks beer risks to be bitten more than the one who not
    And at last, the fact that doesn't seem funny to me... Mosquito is the deadliest creature in the world (remember those accidents with Zika virus and other stuff). Here are some methods of protection from those bloodsuckers. Cheers :)

    I hope he never goes away again.

    I feel like he laughs more in his videos now though.

    That's a well know one about cats.

    Do you know that you can use food grade diatomaceous earth as a flea control in your house? You can read more about it here.

    By the way, BBC made a series of relaxing 10 hours videos about ocean.

    Bit of a combo on this one, but I promise it's worth it.

    1. Orcas are bigger than sharks, but usually don't feed on them because they're generally pretty low in fat. And also high in danger.

    2. The few parts of sharks that are high in fat/oil are shark livers, stomachs, and testes.

    3. Many sharks, rays, and some reptiles exhibit something called tonic immobility, where a creature flipped on its back enters a state of mild paralysis for an extended period of time. The evolutionary purpose of this is uncertain, but it's thought that it's related to making mating easier since females tend to be more sensitive to it.

    4. Sharks are unique in needing to keep moving to force water through their gills and respirate. Most fish have muscles that can do this.

    5. Orcas are really freaking smart and dangerous.

    This all culminates in a hunting technique that's only been noticed and documented in the past 25 years: an orca will drive a large shark to the surface via currents caused by its tail. It then flips up to the surface and lands a gravity-assisted 'karate chop' to temporarily stun the shark. The orca then grabs the shark and flips it upside-down to induce tonic immobility, then holds it there for up to fifteen minutes until the shark suffocates. By hunting in this fashion, the orca avoids danger and is almost never injured. The orca then bites into the shark's carcass near the pharyngeal fins and digs out the liver to eat alone, leaving the rest of the body for scavengers.


    Finish him!
