1) What is the only known substance that naturally exists on Earth in all three chemical states?
2) Which creature can be described as Gazelline? :wink:

1. They have the ability to increase their body temperature as high as 45 degrees celsius.
2. They are both browsers and grazers, in dry seasons they consume water rich foods such as bulbs and roots.
