today I learned: dr. seuss wrote “green eggs and ham” to win a bet against his publisher who thought that seuss couldn’t complete a book using only 50 words. also, a random pod of dolphins once unexpectedly risked their lives to save 80 beached whales. rescuing fellow mammals (altruistically) is a typical trait of dolphins. next, marie curie’s research papers are still highly radioactive and to access them you must sign a waiver and wear protective clothing. finally, large blue caterpillars secrete sweet fluids to attract red ants. the ants then take the caterpillar back to their nest so it can hibernate. the newly emerged butterfly is escorted by the ants to the surface and will protect it from any predators that attempt to attack the butterfly.
