Some leftovers

Oct 12,2019

Here are some leftovers I took in August! Tree frogs and flowers. As well as some strange but useful (or maybe not so useful?) facts about flowers and frogs! Hope you enjoy!!

Get Your Zzzs With Gerbera Daisies

If you want to get a better night’s sleep tonight, try placing gerbera daisies next to your bed. Gerberas emit oxygen and absorb carbon monoxide and toxins at night, this was said to be especially helpful for anyone suffering from sleep apnea.

Roses Are Related To Fruit & Almonds

Roses share a relation with almonds, apples, raspberries, cherries, peaches, plums, nectarines, and pears. Roses have what’s called rose hips which are a berry fruit in some roses.  Rose hips are used to make jellies or teas as they are loaded with Vitamin C.

The Glass Frog (Centrolenella colymbiphyllum) has skin so translucent that you can watch its heart beating. (Carl C. Hansen, Smithsonian Institution)

One gram of the toxin produced by the skin of the golden poison dart frog could kill 100,000 people.

A frog completely sheds its skin about once a week. After it pulls off the old, dead skin, the frog usually eats it.

“I’d rather be ignored as a frog than eaten as a human.”

E.D. Baker
