Did you know Certain types of vultures and other birds like storks poop on their feet to keep cool. The poop is actually both urine and poop and is more of a liquid than a solid. It splats all over the vulture’s bare legs. The liquid evaporates — turns into vapor — and cools the legs and the whole bird down.

An added benefit: the uric acid that’s in the poop kills germs on the birds’ legs and feet.


Special thanks to Karla with a K for today's "Did you know?"!
