Owlets Nap With Their Faces Down Because Their Heads Are Too Big, and Here Are Some Adorable Pics Portraying That

It is always fun to learn new facts about people, animals, or things that surround us daily. If we would focus on animals only, here’s a fun fact about owlets. Did you know they sleep laying down on their stomach like most of the humans do because their heads are to big to sleep upright?

Keeping their talons tightly gripped on a branch, the owlets lie down on their stomachs, turned their heads to the side, and fell asleep. Their naps are short, and when they are asleep, they do not like to be awakened, even to be fed.

They manage to stay up on the tree while taking a nap thanks to the strength of their back toe called the hallux which keeps the animal tethered to the branch without moving until the owlet bends its leg. It might sound weird, well.. owls in general are kinda weird with their 270 degree head rotation, but the napping time is actually cute to see.

Even if you thought of them as the creepiest creatures, these images below will change your opinion.

Climate Change Signs: How Do We Know?

Our climate is changing around us faster than predicted. From more frequent and extreme storms to unprecedented heatwaves, we’re indeed feeling the impacts of human-caused global warming. The icebergs are melting, various locations are experiencing greater flooding, wildfires are happening more frequently, and so on.

Specifically, scientists have studied past climate changes to understand the factors that can cause the planet to warm or cool. The big ones are changes in solar energy, ocean circulation, volcanic activity as well as the number of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Thus, they have each played a role at times. However, human activities are not an exception since it is believed to be main contributors to such increases in average global temperatures

And although we’re all concerned about climate change when it looks like a problem for future generations, we still ask ourselves, ‘will climate change even affect me?’ No matter what we care about, climate change is already affecting our world today. While we still have time to limit the worst impact, we have collected 15 great reasons to start acting now.

These photos illustrate the state of the planet and our climate, as it has changed over the past decade. They reveal how much seriously we must consider the climate change issues!
