Seriously, though, I know that porcupines have been known to have pleasurable intercourse for purposes other than procreating. Whether every day, I'm not sure (maybe depends on the quill angles?).

So, going with True.

Welcome back WFG!

The answer is True-Humans don't have intercourse everyday as well (it was just quicker to type everyday than every other day :whistle: :hmz: )

OWN your it :thumbs_up:

Dis-course is very dangerous ... :wink: :lol:

So, let's get on with the next Q ...


T or F ... Bats mostly turn left when exiting a cave (assuming that the cave has a left-hand turning-option in the first place)?

False :whistle:


A common myth is that bats always turn left when exiting caves. This is one of those fun "facts" that shows up in trivia books Web sites, but nobody seems to be certain where this batty story got started. Nothing in the literature of chiropterology (the study of bats) seems to verify it.

The meat of older water buck takes on an unpleasant odor from the waterproofing secretions of its sweat glands, prompting predators to choose other prey.

Myth

While the secretions may spoil the meat for finicky eaters such as humans, other predators have no such hang ups. They will eat the meat, and actively hunt water buck. This includes lion and crocodile.

I do agree with your statements regarding that they will eat water buck.

But is proven that predator will most likely take on other game and not to often prey on water buck

Been digging a bit :whistle: Found a book written by Charles Astley Maberly Nature Artist in the early 1900
that was pedaling thru the KNP by bike he discovered that lions preferred waterbuck as a meal
A study was then done by Tol Pienaar in the 60s about this speculation and he confirmed that it is the truth.

So the answer then is Myth :thumbs_up:

Your it IB :thumbs_up:
