The 10 Mammals With Unusual Defences

The 10 Mammals With Unusual Defences

In the animal kingdom, to run off the normal mode of the defense. But one of the most immediate impact in removing the face of danger, than fighting. When it comes to mammals, however, some defense rather strange means. Let’s look at some of mammals with our exceptional defense. This is a sequel to my first list, 10 birds with homosexuality. If you think deserves a place here in a mammal, not forget to mention it in the comments!

1. Slow Loris

This animal is not only the name suggests, but also as a small, very weak animals, a slow movement. To protect itself, it has developed an amazing technology. Slow Loris is poison glands on her elbows. It spreads all over the poison and licks its fur. Women lick poison video. It also licking and sucking poisoning poisonous bite him. A slow Loris bitten, victims suffer a lot of pain and inflammation. Although no poison can kill a man, anaphylactic shock can kill.

Nature has created some strange creatures. This is a part of nature’s creatures to kill some animals and eat others. Despite this, animals have incredible defense techniques. Just as the fly to protect themselves, but not as many birds and other techniques, which are actually fairly similar to mammals.

2. Platypus

Not only because this mammal that lays eggs, but also because it is a wonderful defense mechanism, is unusual. The Platypus one each hind limb in a retractable, will be fast, affordable, and Spurs are connected to poison glands. When caught, the animals spurs. Hunters not only lets go, but gets injection is enough to kill the animal about the size of a dog poisoned. This poison is not lethal to humans. But pain sufferers is strong enough to faint. The Spurs are the intraspecific weapons will be used by males during the mating season is assumed.

3. Skunk

Skunks are famous for their odorous secretion. The animal uses extremely powerful chemical weaponry. It has a pair of glands in the anal region, using which it produces the defensive fluid. The developed glands have powerful muscles which allow them to squirt as far as 3 meters. It has incredible aim, as it sprays directly at the face of the enemy, without even looking at it. The foul-smelling liquid can make the predator blind. Thus, it is successful in keeping most predators away, except those like the great horned owl which has no sense of smell and attacks silently from above.


4. Dormouse

These edible rodents generally flee from the enemies, but the another technique as a last resort. If the dormouse is caught by its tail, the loose skin on the tail comes off. The dormouse gets the chance to escape. This method is called autotomy, which is very rare among mammals. The reason the dormouse avoids this method is because it can only do the stunt once, because the exposed tail does not grow kin again on it, and the tail bones fall off, or the dormouse itself gnaws it off. Some dormice also have tufted tails to distract the predator from the head of the creature.


5. Pygmy Sperm Whale

At 1.2 meters, the pygmy edition is almost 1/20th of the gigantic sperm whales. The pigmy sperm whale is thus vulnerable to sharks, orcas or other large sea creatures. To protect itself, it expels a reddish, syrupy substance through its anus, and stirs it around in the water with its tail to create a dark, murky cloud. This, the whale is concealed from the predator’s sight, and taking advantage of this, it swims away. This is considered a very unusual defence mechanism.


6. Crested Porcupine

Creatures, gets, quills from the crest, erectile hair look in front of the body which are modified her name in rodents. But, back to the most dangerous quills. If threatened, it is the first attempt to cut his tail off to make enemies by shaking a rattle quills. She does not work, which it accused of quills backwards and easily back stabs hunters with intervals. Once inside the victim’s body, small barbs on the tip of the pen pull deep inside. The predators can die from internal damage vessels or organs or blood infection.

7. Three Banded Armadillo

The most important are defensive techniques armadillos against large predators, such as armor-like shell hardly provide any protection, to bury themselves in the soil. But Armadillo in the country is as a ball, the coach Jointed loosely, allowing a greater range of motion which can achieve the perfect shape, and its head and tail interlocks. As a smart addition to its defense, the Armadillo too suddenly last time, can break off, creating a sound that startles enemy.

8. Pangolin

The body of the pangolin is covered with large scales with sharp edges. When threatened, they hardly ever use their strong claws on the forelimbs. Instead, they coil into roll, too tight to uncoil. In fact, they may even roll away in the form of this ball to escape attention. They sometimes lash out at the enemy with their heavy, scaly tails, which can cause serious injury to the enemy. As if this was not all, it also has one last defence mechanism: it can squirt a foul-smelling gooey substance from its anus. The pangolin sure is invulnerable to almost all predators.


9. Potto

Potto under which a monkey, which is a very slow motion, danger. To protect itself, has developed a unique animal defense technology. The increased neural spines on animal vertebrae, and their necks and shoulders, have protrude from the animal. Tips spines, which identified me as a possibility by hunters weapons. But use it for a neck potto, or even make it difficult to swallow. potto Save neck, head, might cause a fatal bite to the back of the neck, the spines of some predators.

10. Opossum

Opossum, with a hissing growling, baring teeth or biting response from the potential risk. If all else fails, it takes a trick we call ‘playing in Possum’ feigning illness, fell to the ground, and begins to drool. Then open your mouth and teeth, and lies motionless naked body releases a putrid smell her anal glands. Most prefer to kill their prey Possum hunters who have lost interest in the seemingly dead. Mysteriously, this method is a physical reaction and recovering the original Possum left after only comes in a comatose state.
