Fish And Cow

I knw so little about fish... so so so little...

for instance

~ did u knw they get fat?
~ they have a blood stream
~ it's painfull when you tap on the glass of an aquarium

~Endothermic teleosts (bony fishes) are all in the suborder Scombroidei and include the billfishes, tunas, and one species of "primitive" mackerel. All sharks shortfin mako, long fin mako, white, porbeagle, and salmon shark – are known to have the capacity for endotherm. The degree of endothermy varies from the billfish, which warm only their eyes and brain, to bluefin tuna and porbeagle sharks who maintain body temperatures elevated in excess of 20°C above ambient water temperatures. Endothermy, though metabolically costly, is thought to provide advantages such as increased contractile force of muscles, higher rates of central nervous system processing, and higher rates of digestion.

Just like cows.... well i knw more abt them than fish

for instance

~strange how cows appear to produce milk naturally while most other mammals produce it to feed their young. Cows produce thicker milk when they have calves...

~A popular misconception about cattle (primarily bulls) is that they are enraged by the colour red. This is incorrect; cattle are totally colour-blind, and can only see in greyscale. The main source of this rumour is the fact that Matadors traditionally use red-coloured capes to provoke bulls into attacking. In fact, the red color is merely traditional; the movement of the cape is the attractant

~The worship of the Sacred Bull throughout the ancient world is most familiar in the episode of the idol of the Golden Calf made by Aaron and worshipped by the Hebrews in the wilderness of Sinai (Exodus). But far to the east, Shiva's holy steed is Nandi, the Bull.

Intriguing wouldn't you say?
