I think it’s safe to say that we all have thought about what it would be like to meet an alien. What would they look like? Could we communicate with them? I think most of us have also come to terms with the fact that it is unlikely we will get the answers to those questions within our lifetime (Note: I say unlikely, not impossible). We do, however, still get to learn from the millions of different species on Earth. In fact it’s estimated that more than 86% of animals haven’t even been discovered yet. So although we may not get to know a species from another world, there is plenty to discover about the astonishing creatures on our own planet.
Today’s props go out to extraordinary animals.
I am going to tell you about an animal that rose up in the face of danger, another one that proves animals are capable of much more than we think, and the trick one species uses to achieve a utopian society.
