Tiger Cubs are born Blind.

Tiger cubs are born blind. Yup, that’s true. They remain dependent on their mother for the first two months. The tiger cub’s eyes open around six to twelve days from their birth. However, they attain full vision after a couple of weeks.

At this stage, they are completely vulnerable to every other predator. That is part of nature’s balancing act, which allows a fair chance to others against the apex predator. The tigress is solely responsible for the protection and care of the cubs that’s why she leaves them only for short periods.tiger-cubs

Tigeress usually give birth to around seven cubs, but the average size of its litter is three. The tigress spends a lot of time at the late stages of pregnancy searching for a safe birthing place. Tigress is overly cautious when caring for young cubs. For instance, she will immediately move cubs to a new place if the surrounding area gets disturbed or threatened.

The tiger cubs start following their mother for casual walks or on drinking trips only after two months of age. Tigress will spend nearly 70% of their time nursing and caring for their cubs. The cubs spend most of their time playing with their siblings and they become independent after seventeen to twenty-four months of age.

Stars Are Merely Luminous Balls of Gases.

Stars are mostly huge balls of hot gases such as hydrogen and helium. These gases stick together using their own gravity. These huge balls of gases produce light and heat from the energy released by the thermonuclear fusion of hydrogen and helium.

Some stars shine more brightly than others. Their brightness depends on factors such as how much light stars put out and their distance from earth. The nearer the star the brighter it is. The nearest star to the Earth is the Sun, thus the brightest.

Stars are building blocks of our universe and their life cycle spans billions of years. These luminous balls of gases helped ancient explorers navigate the seas and now help modern-day scientists navigate the universe.

Ice is a cooler version of water.

Water turns into ice when it cools down to zero degrees Celsius (or 32 degrees Fahrenheit). So, we can say that “ice is a cooler version of water” :D. Ice often forms on lakes, rivers, and the ocean in winters. It occurs in different forms such as frost, snow, sleet, and hail.

When the temperature of the water gets close to the freezing point (i.e. zero degrees celsius), water molecules begin to expand. In a small space, these expanding molecules can create a lot of pressure. This is why when water freezes in a crack in a rock, the ice can eventually break the rock apart (using the pressure of expanding molecules). Thus, it plays a very important role in the process of weathering.
