Ever wonder how turkey vultures stay cool during the hot summer months? It's pee. They pee on themselves. Don't try it.
No monarch caterpillars or milkweed plants were harmed in the making of this tweet.
Monarch caterpillars only eat milkweed leaves. Milkweeds don't want to be eaten. Milkweeds fight back with tiny leaf hairs & sticky leaf juice. Caterpillars cut leaf veins, drain sticky leaf juice & shave off leaf hairs. Milkweed don't care milkweed has POISON. #NatureIsMetal

"Let's get this grain." - deer, probably. Winter wheat is often planted as a cool season forage, but the seed heads that mature over summer also provide nutrition during the early summer months when bucks are growing antlers and does are lactating. Who knew wheat was so neat.

Baby venomous snakes do NOT have more venom or less control of their venom than adult snakes. Either way, keep yourself and good ol' Uncle Bob away from venomous snakes. If you don't mess with them, you'll likely never have to put this #mythbuster to the test.

Life’s a beach, so plan a trip to the coast. Just remember to share the shore with Georgia's nesting and migrating birds. ▪️ Avoid posted sites. ▪️ Walk below the high-tide line. ▪️ Watch beach birds from a distance. ▪️ Back away from any nesting birds.
Some cubs are born bigger and stronger than others. Litter mates can develop and grow at very different rates. In May, cubs will begin experimenting with bear food, but typically aren’t fully weaned until late summer.… #BearWise #BeBearWise #KeepBearsWild
