  • What would the world be like if sharks could fly ?
  • Is this a real species or a made-up species?

    Is this a real species or a made-up species?

    Best answer: It has black-and-white markings, but it can't be a Holstein-Friesian bull because it lacks udders and has the body shape of a beef breed. So I guess a Holstein-Galloway mix.

  • Can a tiger or polar bear beat a t rex in 1 on 1 fight?

    Best answer: It is very unlikely. Tigers are ambush predators, and if they attack an animal far larger than them (like a gaur or a buffalo), their first move is to bring it down by grabbing its neck, or by attacking its hind feet. Even if the tiger catches the T-rex unawares, it cannot easily knock it down; the neck is placed... show more
    Best answer: It is very unlikely. Tigers are ambush predators, and if they attack an animal far larger than them (like a gaur or a buffalo), their first move is to bring it down by grabbing its neck, or by attacking its hind feet. Even if the tiger catches the T-rex unawares, it cannot easily knock it down; the neck is placed much higher than that of a bovid, the legs are very strong, and the lashing tail is an effective defense against an attack from behind. And the tiger's jaws are not big enough to choke the T-rex or break its neck. If the tiger tried to jump on the T-rex's back in the same way as tigers occasionally attacked elephants, the tough, scaly hide of the dinosaur would probably suffer less damage than the hide of an elephant, and the tiger's claws might be less able to maintain their grip. The polar bear would probably stand on its hind legs as if it fought against another bear, but the T-rex is much taller, and its bites would cause more damage and blood loss than the paw swipes of the bear. Once the T-rex grabbed the bear, it would probably start shaking it, causing even more damage. So the answer is no, in both cases.

  • When and how did scientists come to conclusion that all humans originated in Africa?

    Best answer: 1. The earliest known modern human (H. sapiens) fossils are found in Africa, dated to about 150,000 to 200,000 years old. 2.

    Best answer: 1. The earliest known modern human (H. sapiens) fossils are found in Africa, dated to about 150,000 to 200,000 years old.

    2. Mitochondrial DNA data suggests that "Mitochondrial Eve" is an African. We determine that by comparing the mtDNA of females from different places on earth. The descendant of the oldest population should have a genetic marker that is shared by all other women, but other women, because they migrated out of Africa, would not have some of the DNA markers that an African woman may have. They also have DNA markers that they share with other non-Africans but not found in Africans. Therefore by determining which markers are the oldest one and which of them are newer ones and are found only in some places but not others, scientists determined that women originated in Africa.

    3. Y chromosomes are inherited from the father by the son. By comparing Y chromosomes using the same method as we did on mitochondrial DNA (which are transmitted from mother to son and daughter but not from father to son or daughter), we also determined that the first male human originated from Africa

    DNA sequencing was too slow before the 1990s, although mitochondrial DNA could be analyzed earlier. Since mtDNA, Y chromosome and fossil data all support the theory that humans originated in Africa, it is now widely held by most people, except perhaps racists who would not accept the idea that their ancestors could have been an African 60,000-70,000 years ago.

  • Will cutting off a limb after you've been bitten by a venomous animal save your life?

    Best answer: Unless the snake bit you in an artery or major vein, most of the venom was put into muscle tissue where it will take a while to reach the bloodstream. So chopping off your arm immediately would greatly reduce the amount of venom you got. IF you didn't bleed to death from having your arm chopped off.

    Best answer: I grew up in cougar country in the Black Hills of South Dakota but I have only seen their tracks there. South Dakotans often have guns and cougars there are extremely cautious of humans. Here in Southern California on the other hand, I have seen two and heard one very close. One that I saw was facing down a guy as I was running down a trail. I thought it was his golden retriever that I saw run off into the brush but the guy was so grateful to me that I happened along when I did because he said the Cougar was facing him off and it was only a few feet away from him. It was just a year or so before a cougar killed a couple mountain bikers near there. Cougars here in Southern California do not have a healthy respect or fear of humans and can sometimes look at humans as potential food if they get hungry. Leopards probably have a similar situation in Africa with humans encroaching on their habitat. The vast majority are no problem but sometimes one will learn to hunt humans, usually a sick or old animal.
