Defending God's Truth

10 Evidences of Design in Animals

1. Elephant Legs

Elephants are the only quadruped whose all 4 legs bend forward in the same direction. It has four fulcrums (pivot points) so that it can rise from the ground easily.

2. Tiger Stripes

No two tigers have the same exact stripes, and are unique like human fingerprints. Tigers have striped skin not just striped fur. A shaved Tiger would still show its stripes.

3. Tiger Eyes

Tigers have eyes with round pupils, unlike domestic cats, which have slitted pupils. This is because domestic cats are nocturnal whereas tigers are crepuscular – they hunt primarily in the morning and evening.

4. Polar Bear Skin and Fur

Polar bears have black skin under their apparent white fur to better absorb the rays of the sun. Their fur is actually transparent, It only appears white, because it reflects visible light.

5. Anteater Tongues

Anteaters are toothless creatures. They use their long and sticky tongue to catch prey. Anteater tongues can be 2 feet long. It is narrow and covered with tiny spines.

6. Giraffe Neck Valves

When giraffes bend down, the valves in their neck vessels are shut down and they prevent excess blood from flowing to the brain so they don’t die from high blood pressure.

7. Giraffe Heart Blood Pumps

Another amazing characteristic is being able to pump blood all the way up to their brain. Their hearts are equipped with features to pump blood as high as necessary.

8. Reindeer Design Features

A Reindeer's nose warms the air it breathes before it gets to its lungs. Some Reindeer have knees that make a clicking sound when they walk. It helps them keep together in a blizzard. Reindeer eat moss because it contains a chemical that stops their body from freezing.

9. Goat and Sheep Eyes

Goats and sheep have rectangular pupils which allow them to see nearly 360 degrees around themselves.

10. The Gazelle's Blood Cooling System

The brain of a gazelle is cooled by a special cooling system located on the right side of its head. Gazelles and other fast-running animals have breathing canals.

Hundreds of small blood veins spread in the large blood accumulations behind these canals. The air the gazelle inhales cools this area and hence the blood that passes through these small blood veins. These small veins then unite in a single blood vessel that conveys blood to the brain. As a result of this system, the gazelle is not affected by the sharp increase in its body heat while running. Without this cooling system for its blood, the gazelle would feint from the African heat when running.
