What if plants could walk?

User Avatar
well they don't so why worry about it? that's like asking what if pigs could fly!? Answer 2: I guess it depends on what you mean by "walk." To me walking implies that they have legs. Snails don't have legs, so they glide rather than walk. In order for a plant to have legs, it would have to have the genetics that underpin everything a leg is, and everything that makes it more. Which is fine, because plants can have huge genomes. More practically, if plants could literally walk, I would expect that they wouldn't need to put so much effort into creating flowers and complex fruits. That would be a problem for humans, because all we would have to eat is leaves, mushrooms, microscopic organisms, algae, and animals. And if you had to chase a lettuce plant around just for a salad, that would be a real pain. I guess eating seaweed would become more popular. ****** The ecosystem of a place would be changing every now and then

Asked in Animal Life, Zoology or Animal Biology, Meerkats

Are Meerkats ectothermic or endothermic?

Endothermic. All mammals are endothermic (except for some heterothermic bats, which greatly lower their metabolism and body temperature during sleep, so that they are technically only endothermic when awake).
Asked in Animal Life

How does a biological clock influence behaviors?

User Avatar
The biological clock is the sequence of behavioral changes every 24 hours. It can be altered, but it takes a while for the body to become accustomed to it. There are high points and low points in a biological clock. The high point is usually from 3pm to 5pm, while the low point is from 3am to 5am, although they might vary. Behavior is influenced by biological clocks in the way you function throughout the day, whether it be perky and energetic during your high point, or gloomy and tired during your low point.

Asked in Animal Life, Biggest, Strongest, Fastest and Other Extremes

What is the strongest animal?

User Avatar
The Strongest Animal The Hercules beetle is considered the strongest lifter. It is also known as rhinoceros beetle (latin name: dynastes ercules) This insect's avg mass is 20g yet it can lift 17 kg, that is 850 times its own mass!! Can you lift an SUV? What about Ants and Elephants? Well, Consider This... Because, all animals use similar molecules in their muscles, the muscles of all animals is (very roughly) the same strength in terms of force per cross sectional area. However, an animal twice as long typically has muscles roughly four times the cross sectional area (resulting in 4 times the force), but a body weight roughly eight times as much. Because of that power law scaling, the bigger an animal is, the more absolute force its muscles can produce, but the less of that force can be applied to the outside world -- more of that force is required just to move the muscle itself around. And so the animals that can lift the most weight relative to the total weight of the animal are generally the smallest animals -- ants, fleas, etc. But the animals that can move the biggest weights (absolute) strength are generally the largest single animals -- elephants, Clydesdale horses, etc. 1. Elephant 2. Polar bear 3. Rhinoceros 4. Hippopotamus 5. Grizzly bear 6. Hippo elephan the rhinoceros beetle This is maybe the most accurate list. I've calculated average weight, maximum weight, average height, maximum height, average length, maximum length, speed and bite force (this include trunk power for elephants, horn power for rhinos...) I know that giraffe is a little suprise. Rank Name Points 1 African elephant 35.81 2 Polar bear 35.14 3 Asian elephant 33.51 4 Giraffe 33.28 5 Hippo 33.02 6 White rhino 32.20 7 Kodiak bear 32.19 8 Saltwater crocodile 32.16 9 Walrus 32.11 10. Grizzly bear 32.01 10.anaconda 9.bears 8.sea lion 7.king cobra 6.caracal 7.lynx 6.bob cat 5.hippo 4.elephant 3.lion 2.moniter lizard 1.siberian tiger it is a tiger that is all wrong because the strongest animal is the...ant! the ant can lift way more than 20 times it's own weight if a tiger could do that then it could lift an average and of (6400 kg)14200 pounds and more! so clearly that is all wrong... 1. Elephant 2. Polar bear 3. Rhinoceros 4. Hippopotamus 5. Grizzly bear

Asked in Animal Life, Rainforests

How do rainforest animals lay eggs?

User Avatar
Well, first the female gets pregnant, then after a couple weeks or months there about to lay eggs.They go find a hidden spot to lay their eggs. Some moms will stay, some will leave and come back. (The more babies an animal has, the shorter time the mother stays with the young and vice versa.) It's mostly like the animals in the woods do except the rainforest has more plants and trees.
