Animal superpowers on display

Love superheroes? Want some superpowers of your own? I thought so.

Actually, we big-brained humans have made some great strides using our own powers, and this fun video highlights some lesser-known superheroes of the natural world.

Their sometimes off-the-wall superpowers help them handle the challenges of avoiding predators, finding prey, finding each other, navigating rivers and oceans, walking up walls, withstanding radiation, toxins, freezing, and even starvation. These powers enhance the competitive advantage and, ultimately, the evolutionary fitness, of their owners.

If you like these, have a look at some of the gold medalists of the natural world, inspired by last year's Olympics.

Can you think of other animal superpowers?

  1. Great to end up going to your weblog once more, it has been a very long time for me. Pleasantly this article I've been sat tight for so long. I will require this post to add up to my task in the school, and it has identical subject together with your review. Much appreciated, great offer. 토토사이트추천
