fun fact :This pitcher plant (Nepenthes rafflesiana elongata) has evolved a unique relationship with the small wooly bat. Instead of consuming insects like the chamber of most of its close relatives, this plant’s chamber provides the bat with a perfect place to roost during the day.

(The Oarfish,17m as opposed to the Whale Shark, 12.96m in the Guinness Book of World Records.)) and is a filter feeder, comfortable cruising at depths of 200 m. Mistakenly named for its prominent pectoral oars with which it was thought to 'row', it undulates serpentlike with its dorsal fins and has been seen orienting itself vertically.

The Rhea is a large flightless bird native to South America and is part of the family of birds known as Ratites, which includes the Ostrich, Emu, Kiwi and Cassowary. Rheas are often mistaken for Ostriches because they share similar characteristics and grow to an impressive size. The male bird hatches and raises the young. After mating, the male builds a nest and incubates the eggs. Once hatched, he continues to rear the chicks, guarding them from any potential threat for the first six months.
