1 An Octopus’s Testicles Are Located in Its Head
Taking the lead in our amazing animal facts is one of the world’s weirdest creatures. And there’s one feature that makes this animal so weird that it would probably make most people squirm. An octopus’s testicles are located in its head. But to be honest, an octopus is really only head and tentacles. Octopuses are part of the cephalopod family which literally means head-footed.
So why are the octopus’s testicle located in its head?
Behind the octopus’s head and opposite its arms lies its mantle. Inside the mantle are all of the octopus’s vital organs, including its reproductive organs, such as its testicles. Behind its relatively small, but intelligent brain lies its anus, hearts (that is hearts as they have more than one), and sexual organs, in that order. The mantle is made out of a strong muscle structure that protects all of their organs from damage.
2 Jellyfish Evaporate in the Sun Because They Are Up to 98% Water
Jellyfish are an ancient sea species that have been on this Earth for around 650 million years. In the water they pose somewhat of a danger to a swimmer that ventures too close. Touch a Jellyfish tentacle and you can expect a nasty sting. Some Jellyfish can even deliver a lethal sting, and all it takes is to touch their long tentacles. But take them out of the water and they are completely harmless. Why you ask? Jellyfish will almost completely evaporate in the sun.
Jellyfish are between 94 and 98 percent water, and when exposed fully to the sun, such as beaching themselves, they will evaporate, almost completely within a few hours. What about their bones and organs?Jellyfish don’t have a brain, heart or bones, so just about all of them will evaporate into nothing.
