The icefish of the Channichthyidae family are unusual in several ways — they lack scales and have transparent bones, for example — but what stands out most is their so-called white blood, which is unique among vertebrates.
Octopuses, lobsters, and horseshoe crabs use hemocyanin, which has copper instead of iron, and is blue instead of red—that's why these creatures bleed blue. Other related molecules are responsible for the violet blood of some marine worms, and the green blood of leeches.
To date, there's only one species that has been called 'biologically immortal': the jellyfish Turritopsis dohrnii. These small, transparent animals hang out in oceans around the world and can turn back time by reverting to an earlier stage of their life cycle.
Hippopotamus gives the milk of blue color. Blue milk, also known as Bantha milk, was a rich blue-colored milk produced by female banthas. Sentients drank it, and also used it in bantha butter, blue bantha buttermilk biscuits, blue-milk cheese, blue milk custard, ice cream, and yogurt.
Almost all animals have a brain, but there are a few exceptions. There is one organism that has no brain or nervous tissue of any kind: the sponge. Sponges are simple animals, surviving on the sea floor by taking nutrients into their porous bodies.
Did You Know? Snails, spiders and octopi have something in common- they all have blue blood! We're not talking in the sense of royalty, these creatures literally have blue blood. So why is their blood blue and ours red?
Bullfrogs… No rest for the Bullfrog. The bullfrog was chosen as an animal that doesn't sleep because when tested for responsiveness by being shocked, it had the same reaction whether awake or resting. However, there were some problems with how the bullfrogs were tested.
Snake blood is red, but within the red spectrum the blood color can vary from dark brown to a yellow tinge. Like other animals, they bleed if someone cuts them, but some have the ability to use their blood as projectiles. Not all snake blood is poisonous, and some can even have beneficial effects on humans.
The white blood cells of both human and frog are similar to each other by means of morphology as well as function. Human blood cells are the circulating cells in the human blood. Human blood is composed of blood cells and plasma (the fluid component of blood).
Since octopus blood is very copper-rich, it's exceptionally viscous. As a result, it requires a significant amount of pressure to pump blood through its body. To compensate, the octopus evolved three separate hearts to take stress off of its systematic heart and ensure it gets enough oxygen into its gills.
Flatworms, nematodes, and cnidarians (jellyfish, sea anemones, and corals) do not have a circulatory system and thus do not have blood. Their body cavity has no lining or fluid within it. They obtain nutrients and oxygen directly from the water that they live in.
Ants do have a kind of blood, though it is called hemolymph. What makes it different from blood is that it does not have red blood cells or haemoglobin. This is because ants blood does not need to carry oxygen around their bodies as it enters the body through the spiracles.
So what is the reason for all of these different colors of blood in animals? The blood of a horseshoe crab is blue because of a mol- ecule called a respiratory pig- ment. In humans, this molecule contains iron, while the crab version contains copper, and that affects the color of blood.
BATON ROUGE – Green blood is one of the most unusual characteristics in the animal kingdom, but it's the hallmark of a group of lizards in New Guinea. Prasinohaema are green-blooded skinks, or a type of lizard.
Summary: Fish do not feel pain the way humans do, according to a team of neurobiologists, behavioral ecologists and fishery scientists. The researchers conclude that fish do not have the neuro-physiological capacity for a conscious awareness of pain. Fish do not feel pain the way humans do.
Cockroach milk is a milk-like, protein rich, crystalline substance produced by cockroaches of the Diploptera punctata species. It serves as nutrition for their young, but humans can harvest this milk by killing female cockroaches and extracting it from their midgut.
Hooded seal mothers produce the fattiest known milk. Human breastmilk has about three to five percent fat in it. But with more than 60 percent fat, hooded seal milk would rival some of the richest Häagen-Dazs ice creams out there.
Simple Summary. The composition of elephant milk differs from all other mammals, as well as between Asian and African elephants. The changes of this milk composition during lactation is also unique. Apart from the major sugar being lactose, sugars also occur as longer chains.
