Brachiosaurus, the arm lizard

Longer fore legs offers Brachiosaurus a passive advantage in reaching up into the tree canopy to feed as the neck is always arched upwards.‭ ‬Since the skeleton and vertebrae would be angled in such a way,‭ ‬Brachiosaurus would not need extra powerful muscles to lift the head and neck all the way up,‭ ‬reducing the effort to feed in such a specialised way.

INFO OF THE DAY

Aye Aye

Aye-Aye is the world's largest nocturnal primate, and is characterized by its unusual method of finding food called percussive foraging. It taps on trees to find grubs, then gnaws holes in the wood using its forward slanting incisors to create a small hole in which it inserts its narrow middle finger to pull the grubs out.
