Nature seems not to get bored of us. The ornitholin is a curious animal. This mammal, with feet and duck bill and laying, also has a peculiar way of practicing hunting, according to new discoveries. For some time, scientists have wondered how you could swim corners and frogs that this animal constantly makes eyes and ears in the slow.

Australian scientists have discovered that it locates them using electrical signals that emit with prey. When dead corners and small batteries are presented at the same time, batteries are used. Studies using an electronic microscope have found cells that act as electrical pulse receptors in the head of the ornithorine.
