Water Bear(I)

Any bear can live in the water? Wow, do not think the water bear is one kind of bear which live in the water. Actually it is Tardigrada, so called water bear. Perhaps Ant 2 of Marvels has already shown about water bear, but it does not mean you may know it very well. Actually the most of children or adults may think this is not real organism, merely the fiction in movie or what else. Now I tell you water bear is real biology in the world. Again, perhaps you feel so amazing and curious, then let us have a read about my post of water bear.Click Here For More.


Water bears, also known as water bears or moss piglets, are nicknamed “little water bear”, which is commonly known as Tardigrada. There are about 900 species recorded, many of which are worldwide distributed.

Water bears are tiny, with a minimum of 50 microns and a maximum of 1.4 millimeters. They must be seen with a microscope. The surface of the body is covered with a water film, which is used to avoid drying and breathe oxygen from the water film.

Water bears are known to be the most viable creatures on Earth. They can survive in outer space without protective measures. They can survive in the Himalaya mountains (more than 6,000 meters, found at 5546 meters), hot springs, Antarctica and the deep sea (less than 4,000 meters).

The Most Clever Marine Animal(I)

Actually there are a lot of marine animals are also very clever. Merely we never touch and contact with them. Meanwhile, the Octopus, sharks, dolphins and whale are well known as clever marine animal by the most of people. However, we seldom meet them except visit to marine zoo. By this time, I mainly elaborate and focus on the octopus and let the most of readers know about here

Morphological Character

There are more than 252 breeds of marine mollusks belonging to 26 genera of the octopus here  Octopus body is short oval, cystic, finless; the division between head and body is not obvious, the head and carcass of octopus is about 7-9.5 cm. The head has large compound eyes and 8 contractile limbed mollusc of the order Octopoda. Each limb has two rows of succulent suckers. The limb of Octopusocellatus is about 12 cm, and the limb of Octopus variabilis is about 48.5 centimeters long. The limb of common octopus reaches to 32.5 centimeters. Climbing with the limb at ordinary times, it can hold things vigorously.

The most well-known octopus in this family is O. vulgaris (Common Octopus), which is medium-sized and widely distributed in tropical and temperate seas all over the world. It lives in caves or crevices on rocky seabed and is invisible. It is considered to be the most intelligent invertebrate with highly developed pigmented cells that can change body color very here

Butterfly in Nature

Butterflies are commonly referred to as butterflies, arthropods, Insecta, Lepidoptera, and general name of Rhopalocera insects. There are about 14,000 breeds in the world, most of them in America, especially in the Amazon. There are 1200 kinds in China. Butterflies are generally brightly colored, with many stripes and rich colors. They have various spots on their wings and bodies. The largest butterfly can spread its wings up to 28-30 cm, and the smallest one is only about 0.7 cm. The main difference between butterflies and moths is that the head of the butterfly has a pair of rod-shaped or hammer-shaped antennae, and the antennae of the moth are of various shapes.

Butterfly History

Butterflies are classified as Lepidoptera. Tens of thousands of species in the world belong to this category. The butterflies evolved from the Cretaceous along with edible flowering plants (phanerogam) and pollinated them, making them the last class of biology in insect evolution. The word butterfly is derived from the ancient English buterfleoge and is composed of butere (butter) and fleoge (flying creation).



There is a long-standing saying that butterfly is called butterfly because butterfly likes to steal butter and milk. People call it an elf with colorful wings and likes to eat cream, so call it butterfly.


Another explanation is that butter refers to the color of butterflies; the word fly originally refers to flying insects, The word butterfly was probably originally used to refer to a pink butterfly with a sulphur color (close to butterfly on wings) that emerged after winter in southern Europe. The male butterfly of this kinds of pink butterfly with yellow wings. When it is flying in the flowers then seemly like a warm light flickering around the flowers, so it is called butter-colored fly by the people.

Nature Teaching US Knowledge

A lot of natural phenomenons teaching us a lot. We may study and research from natural phenomenon then develop valuable tool for human being. Nature teaching us knowledge is really correct statement because since primitive age our ancestors had already learned from nature and created so many tools and for livelihood by using so many natural phenomenons.

Why does ice cream give off steam?

The reason why the ice-cream steam is that there is a lot of water vapor invisible to the eyes in the air outdoor. When these vapor touches the ice-cream as very cold, it liquefy into droplets and surrounded the ice-cream. It seemed that the ice-cream was “steaming”.

Why can snakes walk without feet?

There are many scales on the snake, which is the most outer armor on them. Scales are not only used to protect the body, but also snakes’ “feet”. When the snake crawls forward, the body will be S shaped. And every piece of scale outside the S shape will rise up and help the snake to catch the uneven road when it matches forward. These scales work with the snake’s muscles and push the body forward, so the snake can walk without feet.

Why do people yawn?

When we feel tired, a lot of carbon dioxide has been produced in our body. When too much carbon dioxide is inside the body, oxygen must be added to balance the body’s needs. Because these carbon dioxide residues affect our body’s functioning, the body reacts protectively and yawns. Yawning is a deep breathing movement that allows us to breathe in more oxygen and exhaust carbon dioxide than usual, as well as to eliminate fatigue.

Why do people’s hair turn white when they are old?

There is a substance called melanin in our hair. It means more melanin, then the darker hair. However with less melanin, the hair will become yellow or white. When people get old, the body’s various functions will gradually decline, the formation of pigments will be less and less, so the hair will gradually become white.

Why does people’s belly growl when are hungry?

This is because the food intake before quickly digested then the stomach is empty, but the gastric juice will continue to secrete. At this point, the contraction of the stomach will gradually expand, the liquid and gas inside will be turned and stirred up, resulting in a purring sound.

I had a chance to visit to this beautiful and splendid landscape area and felt its natural scenery. By this time let me introduce about this pretty nature Mulan Paddock to everyone plan to travel in China.


Form of Paddock

Historically, the Mulan Paddock is mainly consisted of three scenic spots: Saihanba National Forest Park, Yudaokou Grassland Forest Scenic Area and Hongsongwa Nature Reserve.

  • Saihanba National Forest Park

It is the largest forest park in northern China. The Mongolian language is called “Sakhanda Bahan Sechin”, which means beautiful ridges. In the Qing Dynasty, it was part of the famous Mulan Paddock (Wei Chang), one of the royal hunting grounds. The total area of Forest Park is 1.42 million mu (unit), of which 1.06 million mu (unit) is forest landscape, 200,000 mu (unit in China) is grassland landscape, and the forest coverage rate is 75.2%. The unique climate and long history have created the special natural and cultural landscape here. There are many kinds of plants and animals in Saihanba National Forest Park. There are higher level plants belonging to 312 genera, 81 families, 659 species. There are 11 families and 25 species of mammals with roe deer as the main species.

Great Migration of East African Animals

The great grassland of Tanzania of East Africa gradually has been exhausted since June of every year, so the foods are less than ordinary time. For food, grassland animals of East Africa travel more than 3,000 kilometers to perform the most spectacular animal migration on Earth. For great migration of east African animals in every year, let me lead you all into Sept., 2016. Millions of animal troops had been rolling over the vast grasslands, with spectacle and great momentum. These grassland animals migrated from southern Serengeti Park in Tanzania to the Masai Mara Game Reserve in Kenya.

General Situation of Migration

Millions of wildebeests, hundreds of thousands of zebras and antelopes have traveled more than 3,000 kilometers from the Serengeti Reserve in Tanzania forward to north, ending in Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve. In meantime, these grassland animals not only must cross the grasslands where lions and leopards lie in ambush, but they should also be on guard against jackals and crocodiles gathering on both sides of the narrow Mala River. These carnivores are ready to share the coming feast at the time of every year.


After reaching the destination as just two or three months, due to climate change, the expedition of more than two million herbivorous wildlife will once again go back to Serengeti in seeking of grass as food. Of the millions of migrants, only 30% of the lucky ones are able to return to their places of origin in every year, and average of 400,000 new lives have been born along with them on a thrilling journey.

Process of Migration

From December to May of each year, African herbivores always relax in the Reserve of Serengeti National Park. There are abundant plants and water that provide enough food for them.


Africa’s Serengeti National Park has had its dry season since mid-to-late May, when the park’s water and grasses cannot meet the needs of a large number of herbivores, so herbivores migrate to northwest of Serengeti to catch up with the grass and water. Every June is the breast-feeding season for African animals, at which time a large number of small wildebeests are born on the migratory path, so big migrations are absolutely difficult for these small animals.


By July and August of each year, the continuous drought has threatened the lives of animals seriously, so a large number of animals have had to cross the Mala River to Masai Mara, this situation will continue until September of each year.


Since October, East Africa’s Serengeti great grassland has had a rainy season again, and the grass is turning green with rain. At the same time, with only about a tenth of the area of Serengeti, Masai Mara National Park is not enough to sustain a large number of herbivores. So the animals started moving southward from the east to Serengeti, and the whole process will last about a month. Basically, it ends in December each year.
