    etcallhome has posted "fun facts" from time to time, I don't think there is a thread though.

    Ever see a bird pee? Me neither.

    "Like mammals, birdsí kidneys do extract waste from the bloodstream but because birds do not pee, this extracted waste (in the form of uric acid) is combined with their poop rather than excreted separately as urea in urine (yes, urea and uric acid are actually different). And when uric acid is mixed with the more solid waste in the birdsí intestinal tract, the acid dissolves and turns the poop mostly white."

    Neat info!

    First thing that comes to mind is this is probably why bird poop is so destructive to painted surfaces and such.

    "The juvenile sea squirt wanders through the sea searching for a suitable rock or hunk of coral to cling to and make its home for life. For this task, it has a rudimentary nervous system. When it finds its spot and takes root, it doesn't need its brain anymore so it eats it! (It's rather like getting tenure.)"
