Can't get enough of this book. It's full of animal photographs from the 1950s. This brings me lots of inspiration. Maybe its their cute little beady eyes, or maybe its that because things really do look better in black and white. Ahh well, time for dinner now so will have to put the book down.
NEW SCIENTIST: why do birds never fall off their perches when sleeping?
- "Birds have a nifty tendon arrangement in their legs. The flexor tendon from the muscle in the thigh reaches down over the knee, continues down the leg, round the ankle and then under the toes. This arrangement means that the birds body weight cause the bird to bend its knee and pill the tendon tight, so closing the claws. Apparently this mechanism is so effective that dead birds have been found grasping their perches long after they have died."
