today, we’re heading back into the world of animals to once again prove that mother nature is rather good at her job 👍🏻
no, but seriously, this fact literally blew my mind a little bit 🤯 (<- that’s a mindblown emoji from ios11.1 … hopefully you can see it)
#tdil that hippos automatically surface to breathe … even when they’re asleep?! 😱
so yeah, how nuts is that?! hippos are so efficient at living in water that they surface for air automagically … like, they don’t even think about it?! it’s just like breathing to them! 🤓
you see, hippos don’t do well out of the water … it just isn’t good for their complexion 💁🏻♀️ as such, they spend pretty much all of their life enjoying a swim (to such an extent that they can swim from the moment they’re born?!)
they dislike being out of water so much (i don’t think it’s actually a choice) that they even sleep underwater! 😴
that said, even though they spend most of their lives swimming, they can only hold their breath for a maximum of five minutes 😒 not ideal when you need to catch a good amount of z’s.
no bother, even when sleeping, they automatically come up for air … meaning that they can keep dreaming about eating and not worrying about death 👍🏻 #ideal
i’m not overly sure how i dragged that fact out for so many paragraphs 😂 but yeah, i did … even fitted in multiple facts while i did it! 🙌🏻
anyway, that’s enough rambling!
byyeeeeee 😏 #tdil
