Unbelievable Facts about Tears

Some people Cry while eating or smelling food or even at mere site of food or even thinking about some delicious meal and vice versa. This is called "Crocodile tears syndrome".

Some people cry without tears because of a genetic disorder that results in lacking the ability to produce tears (alacrima).

Crocodile tears (or superficial sympathy) are a false or insincere display of emotion such as a hypocrite crying fake tears of grief. The expression comes from an ancient anecdote that crocodiles weep in order to lure their prey, or that they cry for the victims they are eating.  

Why we Cry or weep?
Crying is increased lacrimation due to strong emotional stress, suffering, mourning, or physical pain. This practice is not restricted to negative emotions; many people cry when extremely happy. 

Scientific Basis of Crocodile tears syndrome: an uncommon consequence of nerve regeneration subsequent to Bell's palsy or other damage to the facial nerve in which efferent fibers from the superior salivary nucleus become improperly connected to nerve axons projecting to the lacrimal glands (tear ducts), causing one to shed tears (lacrimate) during salivation while smelling foods or eating. Presumably, one would also salivate while crying due to the inverse improper connection of the lacrimal nucleus to the salivary glands, but this would be less noticeable.

World's only barking (waterdogs) amphibian; MUDPUPPY

Mudpuppies, also called waterdogs, are one of only a few salamanders that make noise.

Scientists consider it a misconception that they make a barking sound. But they are known long for their doglike barking.
Among the largest of the salamanders, mudpuppies can exceed 16 inches (41 centimeters) in length.

Fishermen who hook mudpuppies will often cut their line rather than touch these extremely slimy amphibians, believing incorrectly that these innocent creatures are poisonous (they are not poisonous).Their average life span in the wild 11 years (may reach 20 years of age) and range in size from 11in to 16 in (28 to 40cm).



World's Most beautiful Birds: Birds of Paradise

These are worlds most beautiful birds.They have gorgeous and enormous head plumes and other distinctive ornaments, such as breast shields or head fans. Also have particular highly elongated and elaborate feathers extending from the beak, wings or head. 
 This Plant looks like a beautiful bird... But infact its a plant, "Strelitzia reginae" indigenous to South Africa.
(Thanks to Sanet Boshoff for the correction)

Contrary to humans (where females use their ornaments and beauty to attract males) Males of these birds put their bright colors and unusual ornaments to good use when they display for females.

Their elaborate dances, poses, and other rituals accentuate their appearance and put on a phenomenal show for both female birds and any humans lucky enough to be in the vicinity. Such displays can last for hours, and in many species they consume a significant part of the male's time.

The trade in their skins and feathers has been going on for more than 2000 years, and the birds have been of considerable interest to collectors.

World's Most beautiful & Most deadly ANIMALS: Golden Poison Dart Frog

Everything that glitters is not GOLD....so true here
Golden Frog si considered one of the most toxic animals on Earth. A single specimen measuring two inches (five centimeters) has enough venom to kill ten to twenty grown men or enough to kill about 10,000 mice. Indigenous Emberá people of Colombia have used its powerful venom for centuries to tip their blowgun darts when hunting, hence the species' name.

Their diet includes flies, crickets, ants, termites, and beetles. The only natural predator of the golden poison dart frog is Leimadophis epinephelus, a snake that has developed a resistance to the frog's poison.

These frogs have a average size equal to a common paper pin and yet can kill 2 giant elephants with their poison. Their poison is alkaloid in nature and can be transferred via contact to different places. Many cats and dogs die via mere contact to a towel or leaf these species had contact with.
