Do snakes have a good sense of smell?

Most snakes have an excellent sense of smell, in part to make up for their poor eyesight and limited hearing. Rather than a conventional nose, however, snakes sniff with an organ at the roof of the mouth called a Jacobson’s organ, which is also found in a few lizard species.

Which bird produces milk?

Why are icebergs made of fresh water?

True icebergs are galcier fragments that have fallen into the sea. Glaciers are made of compacted smow, which is fresh water. Additionally, “sea ice” that forms from the freezing of sea water is also basically fresh water as well. This is because when saltwater freezes, it excludes salt from the ice crystal lattice.

Do monkeys eat bananas?

Wild monkeys do eat bananas, but the bananas that monkeys are fed in zoos are cultivated for humans to have more sugar. These bananas are just too sweet for primates.

Is a contraction one word or two?

Contracted words count as the number of words they would be if they were not contracted. For example, isn’t, didn’t, I’m, I’ll are counted as two words (replacing is not, did not, I am, I will). Where the contraction replaces one word (e.g. can’t for cannot ), it is counted as one word.

Can a lobster live forever?

Although they are still susceptible to death by disease or attacks, lobsters can theoretically live forever because getting older does not raise their chance of dying. An enzyme known as telomerase prevents the DNA in lobsters’ cells from being damaged as they are replicated, scientist Simon Watt reports in The Sun.

What the boiling point of water in Fahrenheit?

On the Fahrenheit scale, the freezing point of water is 32 degrees Fahrenheit (°F) and the boiling point 212 °F (at standard atmospheric pressure). This puts the boiling and freezing points of water exactly 180 degrees apart.
