πŸ” Have you ever heard the expression, "rare as hen's teeth?" It's meant to say that something is extremely rare because hens do not have teeth. Except, as it turns out, some hens do have teeth!

πŸ” Millions of years ago, chickens developed with conical, alligator-like teeth that reabsorbed into the jaw before they hatched. However, some chickens mutated and kept their teeth. These chickens were called Telpids. Sadly, they had other birth defects that prevented them from surviving after hatching. Scientists are studying these ancient birds to learn more about tooth development so that one day we may be able to regrow out teeth!

With great effort, the giant panda population is now over 1800, meaning they are no longer considered an "endangered" species. This is great proof that conservation efforts work!

In light of this good news, we wanted to share some fun facts about panda teeth! 🐼

Just like humans, they have two sets of teeth. Their first set come in around 3 months, similar to human babies. However, they lose these teeth much earlier, and end up with a replacement set of 42 teeth by the age of eighteen months.

Their enamel is much stronger than human tooth enamel, and more interestingly, can regenerate and repair itself!

They have large canine teeth that allow them to break bamboo and flat back teeth to grind it up with. πŸŽ‹

In honor of Flag Day, here's a few facts about our star spangled banner:

πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈIn 1949, President Truman officially declared June 14 to be Flag Day.
πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈThe blue portion of the flag represents the Union, which today contains fifty white stars to represent each of the fifty states.
πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈThe thirteen alternating red and white stripes represent the original 13 colonies who declared independence from Great Britain in 1776.
πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈSeven red stripes and six white stripes also help us remember the year of our founding (β€œ76”).

Happy Flag Day, everyone!

Sharks have amazing teeth! In these pictures of two different shark jaws, you can see how they are lined up in rows, with teeth waiting to come in like they are on a conveyor belt. That's a good thing since sharks can lose as many as 100 teeth a day! 🦈

🐝May 20 is World Bee Day! 🐝

Bees can sometimes get a bad rap, mostly because of their painful stings. However, we very much need these creatures! A third of the world's food depends on bees for pollination yet bees are increasingly endangered and almost no longer able to survive without human help!

Did you know? Bees have jointed legs, but do not actually have knees. So where does the expression, "That's the bee's knees," come from?

In the 1920's, young people used nonsense phrases to refer to things they thought were very cool. So expressions like "the cat's pajamas," "the snake's hips," and yes, "the bee's knees" became popular. It might be time to bring back some of these fun expressions!

Now bee on your best bee-havior today! 🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝

Think floss is boring? West Virginia prison inmate, Robert Dale Shepard, didn't think so. In 1994, he used floss to make a rope which he used to scale the walls of his prison and escape!

We would prefer you just use it to clean between your teeth πŸ˜‰

β€’ Stay connected with loved ones via video chat
β€’ Reduce media consumption
β€’ Continue to wear your mask, wash your hands, and maintain social distance
β€’ Get vaccinated!
