Animal Trivia

The animals on our planet truly are some of the most unique creatures that we can encounter. Wild, pet, endangered, or a food source, whether they reside in the ocean or on land they have the ability to charm, terrify, and enchant us. There is much to learn from the animals who wander the land alongside us. Understanding, awareness, tolerance, and respect are words which should always be included in our animal vs human relationships.

Why we Get Goosebumps When Cold or Afraid: 
Goosebumps are a fight or flight response by our body in an attempt to make us appear larger than we actually are. Each bump appears at the base of a hair follicle with the purpose of causing the hair to stand erect. Hence also the term "hair raising" when we experience fear. We may not notice this effect too notably on ourselves but it is quite visible on animals who experience it.
