Fact or Myth: The reason birds don't have teeth is because it would make the head too heavy for flight.

Yep, Picnic, but the very very largest majority of birds do fly; so my Q applies to them. :wink: A chicken is indeed a bird, but if you're referring to a cooked chicken, I suppose that wouldn't fly either. :twisted: :lol:

It is in fact true.

Elephant has a pharyngeal pouch at the base of its tongue, where it can store water. Desert elephants regularly use this feature, as they may need to travel distances between drinking opportunities. Mothers can also extract water to cool down their young.

This same chamber is used during elephant communication, to help produce the low rumbling noises often incorrectly called stomach rumbles.

First to post is it. :thumbs_up:

Myth. The reason why birds don't have teeth is because they don't have hands to hold a toothbrush. 8)

Myth :hmz: The birds that cannot fly is not the ones with huge heavy heads. Some predatory birds and parrots fly just fine with a heavy bill.
