Fact.

Lions can only sweat through their paws and mucous membranes in the mouth.
They also use panting to cool down.

Fact or Myth ... A squirrel has color vision. Every part of its field of vision, is in perfect focus, as with man.

DrPhil. :thumbs_up:

:gflower: Heksie, they have perfect vision as follows. So :( it is a Myth.

A squirrel has no color vision. It sees only in black and white. Every part of its field of vision, however, is in perfect focus, not just straight ahead, as with man.

Although Elephant tusks are widely known as the main source of the illegal ivory trade it is only but one source of ivory. Pigs and hippo tusks are common sources of ivory as well.
