Weiner Dog Racing »

Weiner is an American slang for Dachshund; they are also called Dachsel, Dackel, Teckel, Badger dog while other countries have different slang names for Dachshund too. Weiner dogs are not only good companions they are very hyper, love to run very fast and enjoy exercise. They also love to be part of sport and just show off. That’s why Weiner dog racing was made.

Weiner dog race have lengths of 50 meters. To start with, the Weiner dogs are placed in a box. And the box opened at the signal of the referee and the race begins. Some course are open while others separate the lanes to avoid the dogs going to other lanes. But an open lane is much fun, Weiner dogs getting out of its lane are hilarious and looking lost in the middle of the race and doing other things instead of running; unsure whether these pets will make it to the finish line.

Watching Weiner dog race is so fun, how much more if your doggie will be the one racing. It is just like watching your son play soccer or baseball, very exciting. Weiner dog racing is all rage and the feeling of exhilaration you get when your Weiner dog crosses the finish line; they are just so unexplainable. Whether a Weiner dog wins or not its owner will always be proud of his or her pet’s achievement in competing at a dog race like this.

The Truth About Snakes »

You may or may not believe this but not all snakes are harmful. There are 2,900 species of snakes around the world except in Antartica and only 375 of them are harmful or those who have venoms or poisons that can kill us. Snakes prefer to draw back than be aggresive unless they are provoked or hurt they will fight. Snakes will not hurt humans, with the exception of anacondas, I suppose. But those pythons and small snakes will never attempt to hurt humans, obviously because we are much bigger than them. Snakes that has no venom uses their teeth to grasp their prey but those who have venoms really have the intention of killing their prey.

Our misconception have been caused by snakes features. Their eyes are really sharp but they actually cannot see from very far. But do you know that snakes eyes do not close? Yes they are always open; so do they sleep? Some snakes have clear sight while others do not. They uses their tongue to smell. That is correct. Snakes eat animals only by killing them first and then they swallow their prey and not bite them. They can eat animals that are even much bigger than them because their jaws are elastic. Their colorful skin is actually what mde them attractive to those who choose them to have pets. Snakes are frighting too because of the portrayals we see snakes have in media.

Many snakes species are now endangered. And one of the reason for this is many snakes are dying in the hands of humans. Most of us thought that snakes are always dangerous, they always have intention of hurting us. If you see snake in your area, don’t attempt to hurt them. Make 5 giants steps to back away and then run away, don’t hurt them. They are also creatures who have the right to live in this world too.

Desert has no many plants and animals compared to normal areas yet this is the home of many reptiles, insects, birds and small mammals. Many large animals were not able to survive in the desert life. Thus, these desert animals have found ways to survive with the lack of water, extreme temperatures and with the desert environment and shortage of food.

Many desert animals do not hunt for food in the day staying all day under the land where they made a hole while some just stay in the shade. At night, desert animals go out and hunt for food. This is the way to fight the very hot temperature of the desert. Some desert animals do not need water often because water is already in the food they eat like seeds, insects and bulbs. Their body features are really made to survive the desert condition but there are some desert animals that are becoming endangered species.
