Must Be a Guy!

The European Starling will often evict the Red-bellied Woodpecker from its nest. The male has a wider tongue tip and longer bill than the female, allowing him to reach deeper into crevices to find prey. Studies have shown the male forages on the tree trunk, while the female forages mostly on limbs.

Poodle Pun

A Poodle walks into the Groomer’s.

Groomer says, “What will it be today?”

Poodle says, “well I want it going with my waves on top, faded on one side, plug the other, and just make it all out of shape and messed up.”

Barber says, “Now why in the world do you want your hair cut like that.”

Poodle says, “That’s how you cut it last time”

Snow Flakes

Ever heard someone say that there are no two snowflakes exactly alike?  Our friends over at Snowcrystal.com says

“The short answer to the question is yes — it is indeed extremely unlikely that two complex snowflakes will look exactly alike.  It’s so extremely unlikely, in fact, that even if you looked at every one ever made you would not find any exact duplicates.
The long answer is a bit more involved — it depends on just what you mean by “alike,” and on just what you mean by “snowflake.”  Let’s look at the possibilities….” Find out more about snowflakes at snowflakes.com 

Little Doggie

Yesterday we posted this picture and asked “wolves or coyotes?”

It’s really difficult to tell from a picture however, we cheated. We know what they are.

Wolves and coyotes are very similar with some distinct differences. A wolf has short rounded ears versus a coyotes longer pointed ears, smaller pointed nose, and smaller paw size. Weight is another factor when trying to reach a determination. Wolves can reach up to and surpass a coyote’ s weight by more than 4 times depending on the coyote.

This picture was taken at the zoo at the new wolf enclosure. According to the zoo, these little doggies are wolves.

Thank you to everyone that played along!
