Why can’t elephants jump?
   Although elephants have the same number of bones in their feet as other mammals,
   the bones are more tightly packed together in an elephant’s foot,
   therefore the flexibility or spring mechanisms are not there.
   Not to mention the sheer amount of weight that they would be attempting to get off the ground!

Could you go to prison in Arizona for refusing someone a glass of water?
Well, maybe not prison, but your could be due for a hefty fine.

How does a chameleon change color?
It is a misconception that chameleon change color to match their environment. This is not the case -- their change in color is brought about by a combination of temperature, light, and the emotional state of the chameleon itself. What created this misconception is that chameleons mainly alternate between the colors of green, brown and grey, which are usually the color of their background. The key to a chameleon's ability to change color is the cell layers beneath its transparent skin. Some of these layers contain pigments, while other reflect light to create new colors.

What creature has the biggest brain?
A tough question, as the answer depends on context. While an elephant's brain weighs 5000g and a blue whale's doubles that at a whopping 10000g, when taken in proportion with the rest of the body, the whale's brain is smaller than man's. It was assumed that this was the reason for man's superiority over the other creatures, until it was discovered that -- while man has 1g of brain for every 44g of body -- the dwarf monkey has 1g of brain for every 27g of body, and the capuchin monkey has 1g of brain for every 17.5g of body.

Do lemmings really commit mass suicide?
In a word, no. Although it is a common belief that lemming queue up to jump off cliff, it is, quite simple, not true. A 1958 documentary called White Wilderness  appeared to show this happening, but the shots were set up by the director. Occasionally, when population growth is too high, some lemmings will migrate to a less populated area. When this happens, some lemmings die due to an unfamiliarity with their new environment. However, when there is competition for space or mates, lemmings are more likely to fight and kill each other than kill themselves.

部分词语解析

lemming:
n. 旅鼠

queue:

documentary:

  我看了一部关于内战的纪录片。

  该岛人口约78,000。

Possibly, yes. According to researcher Joost Meerloo, epidemics of laughing, a type of mass hysteria, have been noted since the Middle Ages, and similar episodes are occasionally reported in medical literature today.

Why are normal clouds white but rain clouds black when water is colorless?
The relative whiteness or darkness of a cloud is a function of cloud depth. The small, puffy white cumuliform clouds that form on sultry summer days shine brightly because the sun reflects off the water droplets. As clouds become bigger and coalesce, light cannot reach the bottom of the cloud and is instead reflected off the top. The vertical extent of the cloud influence the darkness we see from the Earth's surface. The darkest cloud formations occur during thunderstorms, where clouds can sometimes be 20000 to 30000 feet high!

function
n.  功能

  bridges perform the function of providing access across water.
  桥梁起到提供水上通路的作用。

sultry
adj. (指天气)湿热难耐的
e.g.
  My mind travelled back to a hot sultry day in the little town.
  我的思绪回到从前在这个小镇上度过的闷热的一天。

coalesce
v.  接合,结合,汇合
e.g.
  the puddles had coalesced into shallow streams.

Why do we get hiccups?
Hiccups are caused when the muscle that controls our breathing, the diaphragm, becomes irritated and begins to spasm and contract out of control. Air is pulled into the lungs quickly, passes through the voice box, and then the epiglottis closes behind the rush of air, shaking the vocal chords, causing the hiccup sound for about 5 mins, and the best way to get rid of them is to breathe into a paper bag, as this calms the diaphragm by increasing the amount of carbon dioxide in your bloodstream.

hiccup
v. 打嗝
e.g.
  You can usually get rid of hiccups by drinking water very quickly.
  你可以用快速喝水法消除打嗝。

diaphragm
n. 膈,隔膜
e.g.
  The diaphragm draws air into the lungs.
  横膈膜向下运动让空气进入肺部。

spasm
n. v. 痉挛, 抽搐
e.g.
  When the spasm passed, it left him weak and sweating.
  一阵痉挛之后,他虚弱无力,一直冒汗。

epiglottis
n. 会厌

vocal chords
n. 声带

bloodstream
n. 血流
e.g.
  Bacteria was introduced into his bloodstream through an unsterile needle.
  细菌通过未消毒的针进入了他的血流中。

Can It Really Rain Cats and Dogs?

The simple answer to this question is no, it cannot. So why do people say that? Many suggestions have been offered, ranging from cats falling off roofs during storms to the rare French word catadoup, meaning waterfall. However, there are other similes that have been used in the past that depict it as the falling of unlikely objects -- such as pitchforks, hammer handles and chicken coops -- as a way of describing the noise and confusion of the a storm, and it is likely that this is where the phrase originated. So, it may not rain cats and dogs -- but about fish and frogs? That has actually happened -- although not both at the same time. Fish fell from the skies in London in 1984 and Great Yarmouth in 2000, and in 1844, again in England, frogs fell from the clouds. This is possible because powerful updrafts created during thunderstorms form mini tornados, which can suck up things in their path -- such as fish or frog swimming close to the surface if the storm brews at sea or over a river

Why are some hens' eggs brown and some white?
Believe it or not, white eggs come from hens with white feathers and brown eggs come from hens with red feathers. Although the different color eggs are produced by different breeds of hen, there is no difference in flavour or nutrients. Hens produce one egg every 24~26 hours, after which they take half an hour's break before starting again. Some hens also take a day off every 3~5 days, while the workaholic hens only rest every 10 days.

How do Emperor penguins protect their eggs?
In this branch of animal kingdom, it is the males that look after their unborn offspring. They loving father will keep his egg on the feet, covered with a feathered flap of tummy. He will brace the biter Antarctic cold for the 60 days or more that it takes for the egg to hatch -- and they do not eat a thing for the entire time day doing this. When their babies hatch, the father feed the chick a special liquid from the back of his throat. Then, when the mother penguin returns, the father goes out to the sea for a well-earned rest.

Why birds lay the largest and smalled eggs?
The largest egg is that of the ostrich, which about 18cm long, 14cm wide and weighs about 12kg. This is about 2000 times larger than the smallest bird's egg, which is produced by the hummingbird, Hummingbird egg are 1.2cm long, 0.8cm wide and weigh less than 0.2g!
