Animals building skills

Everyone needs a place to live, but some aren't happy with the great outdoors, they look for some home comforts - they use extraordinary specialist building skills to construct the perfect home. Homes have many uses. They can prove a bolthole to escape predators, a safe nursery in which to raise young, a food store and a shelter from bad weather.
Animals of many shapes and sizes build their own homes. Perhaps the biggest construction projects are those undertaken by ants. Hundreds of thousands work together to construct their home.
Small mammals are expert diggers. Meerkats and hamsters both excavate elaborate tunnels where they can stay out of harm's way and raise their young, though the hamster likes to work alone while the meerkats prefer to have the company of an entire clan.
When it comes to making a nursery, it’s birds who steal the show. In just a few days they can construct a basket of twigs - a nest that can support their growing family and keep them out of harm's way.
There is one other good builder in the animal kingdom - us. Did we learn our skills from the animal home builders?

Animals Did It First - How Do Animals Build Habitats? | Science Documentary | Reel Truth Science

Like humans, animals have evolved ways of manipulating their surroundings to suit their own demands. Homes, fortresses, roads and bridges, some are even into home decorating. Every one of the engineering principles that underpins human architecture has a parallel in the natural world. The leaf-cutter ant invented agriculture 200 million years before we did. Honeybees raise their young in hexagonal cells, a space-saving design tip that inner city architects are just beginning to employ. Bowerbirds decorate their nests with bright objects. A termite mound is a masterful example of air conditioning technology that mimics our greatest skyscrapers. Some creatures have even made their homes within our sterile metropolises.

The creativity of humans is astounding. We design ever more outlandish clothes to help us attract a mate and even use cosmetic surgery. We can build submarines, skyscrapers and spacecraft. All in all were pretty impressive or are we? In Animals Did It First we discover that animals are better than humans at most things and almost always got round to it years before.

20 AMAZING Animal Architects

When you hear the word architect, you immediately think of someone poring over blueprints and assessing a site where something magnificent is going to be built, you don’t generally think of an animal. Yet, the animal kingdom is full of incredible architects who have skills beyond our imaginations. We’re taking inspiration from them today and discovering some of the most incredible animal architects.

8 - Cliff swallow
Cliff swallows build impressive mud nests on cliffs, but in urban areas, they may choose to build their nests against a tall wall with a rough texture.
It takes the swallow between one and two weeks to gather more than 1,000 mud pellets and build a new nest. During nesting season, its illegal to remove these nests in the US without a permit, but after breeding season, you can without needing a permit.

7 - Caddisfly Larvae
When these insects are fully grown, their architectural skills are nothing special, it’s in their larval stage that they show their incredible skill as an architect. Caddisfly larvae are aquatic, and they live inside a protective case that they’ve made themselves. They will gather anything lying around and combine it with their own silk to create this casing. It’s mostly debris, twigs and leaves, but many have been spotted with beautiful stones, colourful bugs and berries. In the 80s, Hubert Duprat – a French artist – made opals, pearls and gold flakes available to the larvae, and his efforts were rewarded as the larvae created beautiful, expensive works of art.

6 - Mud Dauber
This elegant nest belongs to a wasp called a mud dauber. There are several types of mud daubers, including organ-pipe mud daubers, black-and-yellow mud daubers and blue mud daubers. They create their nests using mud and on occasion, their own vomit. The nests are shaped like cylindrical tubes and are built against bridges, walls, cliffs or similar structures. Inside are many cells that house the eggs and are also traps to keep prey, like spiders, so the wasps and their larvae can eat when they’re ready.

5 - The Baya Weaver
These delicate creations belong to the baya weaver birds, native to the Indian Subcontinent and Southeast Asia. They build their nests in Acacia trees or thorny palms, close to food, water and leaves. They’re usually found in colonies, but you do sometimes spot a lone nest.

4 - Prairie Dogs
These are really rodents and they’re incredible diggers. They excavate their homes by digging burrows underground. They’re usually found in North America, and weather can vary greatly for these guys. Their homes need to withstand anything from extreme temperature differences, floods and fires. The different chambers of the burrows all serve different functions, for example, the nursery for the young will be deep within the soil so they are protected from predators. Some chambers are meant purely for storing food, others for listening out for predators and more for hiding from potential threats. You’ll find between 5 and 35 dogs per acre. The biggest home of prairie dogs was discovered in 1900, where it covered 25,000-square miles or 65,000 square kilometres, with around 400 million prairie dogs living inside!

3 - Leaf Curling spider
Native to Australia, the leaf-curling ant makes an excellent home, secure from any outside interference. The spiders find the perfect dead leaf and line it with silk. They curl the leaf up, sealing it at the top and the bottom. They hide inside the leaf in the centre waiting for a nibble to pass by. These spiders are strong and can lift leaves that are 4 times their weight. Females also use these curled leaves as their nursery, and she then keeps the leaf hidden in nearby foliage. They’ve also been known to use other pliable materials like paper, to create their shelters.

2 - Hamerkop Scopus umbrette
It’s a mouthful, I know, so you can just call them Hamerkops. These African birds build some impressive nests! They can take months to create, and they build between 3 and 5 a year! Regardless of whether the bird is breeding or not, they continue to build these nests. They can measure up to 2-meters in width or 6.5-feet and weigh as much as 50 kg or 110-pounds. They take about 8 weeks to build and use up to 10,000 twigs per nest! Both the male and female are equally involved in the building of these massive structures.

Nest Building of Engineer Bird_Rufous Hornero Nest Building.
“In about two weeks these diminutive birds manage to work two thousand pellets of mud, weighing about ten pounds in all, into an impressive dome…The oven’s construction involves building a rather ordinary but oversized adobe cup on the branch. This is then built up to make a sphere with a circular opening on one side, close to but not directly over the branch. Adding the mud pellets and smoothing them out without risking a collapse of the domed roof as it curves inward must require considerable care; the procedure employs behavior highly modified from that used for the cup…The birds construct a curved internal wall about three-quarters of the way toward the roof, creating an entrance chamber between the door and the nest cavity. The indirect entryway becomes a severe obstacle for predators, and the smooth concrete-like dried mud itself repels attacks.”

Rufous Hornero are residents of second growth scrub and pastureland from central Brazil west to Bolivia and south to southern Argentina. Noted more for their distinctive nests than for their appearance, Rufous Hornero are large ovenbirds with rufescent brown upperparts, light rufous supercilia, and tawny breast and underparts. Rufous Hornero feed predominantly on insects such as beetles, crickets, ants, and termites, which they capture while foraging on the ground. Rufous Hornero are incredible architects that build domed nests out of mud and straw; these nests are 20 to 30 cm in diameter and 20 to 25 cm tall. The nests of the Rufous Hornero are almost never reused by the pair that built them, making these nests readily accessible to other birds and animals as nest locations and shelter.

Animals: The first ever Civil Engineers | Free Documentary Nature

Everyone needs a place to live, but some aren't happy with the great outdoors, they look for some home comforts - they use extraordinary specialist building skills to construct the perfect home. Homes have many uses. They can prove a bolthole to escape predators, a safe nursery in which to raise young, a food store and a shelter from bad weather.

Animals of many shapes and sizes build their own homes. Perhaps the biggest construction projects are those undertaken by ants. Hundreds of thousands work together to construct their home.
Small mammals are expert diggers. Meerkats and hamsters both excavate elaborate tunnels where they can stay out of harm's way and raise their young, though the hamster likes to work alone while the meerkats prefer to have the company of an entire clan.

When it comes to making a nursery, it’s birds who steal the show. In just a few days they can construct a basket of twigs - a nest that can support their growing family and keep them out of harm's way.
There is one other good builder in the animal kingdom - us. Did we learn our skills from the animal home builders?

Bizarre animal appearances

Animals shock us with the most bizarre appearances - some even look like they've been dressing up. But the weird and wonderful shapes and colours of nature are vital to the animals' lives. Sometimes they're disguised to help blend in, other times they are designed to stand out and show off. But whether it's a monkey in make-up or a salamander's toxic stripes, the weird and wonderful outfits enable the creature to thrive.
The obvious place to start exploring animal outfits is the colourful parrots. The birds dazzling hues are not all caused by pigment, but more a clever reflection of the light. Bright, vibrant plumage is very attractive to a bird of the opposite sex - it demonstrates that the wearer is in good health, but surprisingly the main function of their bold markings is camouflage.
There is an alternative to blending in. Some animals use colourful costumes to make themselves stand out. In the case of bold and bright tree frogs and salamanders, it's to warn would be attackers of toxins in their skins.
Intimidation can also be used in the mating game, when a male wants to make himself bigger and more intimidating to his competitors. Many birds flaunt elaborate plumage to make themselves look more dramatic. The king of courting costume though is the peacock. With a two metre tail span, covered in colourful, eyelike markings, he's hard to ignore. But while some creature costumes are easy to explain, others remain a mystery.
Animals dressing up might seem colourful to us, but perhaps it's not so strange - there is no species that enjoys putting on a costume as much as we do!

ANIMAL HOMES | SKILLS ON BUILDING HOMES

Wild animals build their homes for their own protection against predator and for comfort and survival just like we humans do. Every creature has its own strategy to build their own home. And sometimes, some creature has their own kingdom to build, loyalty to their master/queen and bravery in other cases of circumstances.
