How do ducks use their tails for flight?
Platypuses do not have duck bills and beaver tails. The bill of a platypus is quite different in size and functions to a duck's bill. The bill of a platypus is vital to its su…rvival. The platypus uses its bill to find food. It closes its eyes when underwater, and uses its bill to detect movements. Equipped with electroreceptors, the sensitive bill can sense electrical impulses, even the tiniest of movements made by underwater crustaceans. The bill is also used to shovel up the soil on the bottom of the river or creek in order to find the food. Once found, the platypus uses grinding plates in its bill, rather than teeth, to crush the food before eating it. Platypuses also do not have beaver tails. Although both creatures have flat tails, there are some differences. Their tails are a different shape.The beaver's tail is broader and flatter than a platypus's, and covered with special scales. The platypus's tail is covered with dense fur.Their tails serve different purposes. The beaver's tail is used to help propel it along in the water. The platypus's tail is used as a rudder, for steering when it is swimming.
The platypus does not have either a duck's bill or a beaver's tail. The platypus's bill is broader and flatter than a duck's bill. It contains sensitive electroreceptors which… can pick up tiny electrical impulses from aquatic animals and insect larvae underwater, which is what the platypus eats. The platypus also uses its bill to scoop up these creatures from the mud. The beaver's tail is broader and flatter than a platypus's, and covered with special scales. The platypus's tail is covered with dense fur. Their tails serve quite different purposes. The beaver's tail is used to help propel it along in the water. The platypus's tail is used as a rudder, for steering when it is swimming, but it also stores fat. A thicker tail is the sign of a healthier platypus. The female tends to live on the fat stored in her tail while she incubates her eggs.
Absolutely! It is their preening gland. It produces the oil that is used to make their feathers water proof. The ducks will rub their beaks on it to spread the oil. It looks l…ike a little bump with feathers growing out of it.
There are several reasons why they do it. 1. If they have been in water, they do it to shake the water off. 2. They also do it when they are happy. And 3. Sometimes they… just do it to do it. :)
1. to shake off water 2. because they are happy 3 its a form of communication
It means the duck is a boy.
Ducks have short tails.
Yes - the tail adds stability. Without it - the kite would just spin. The tail makes the bottom of the kite slightly heavier so it flies vertically.
ducks shake their tails because that shows that they are happy
bouyancy and balance
\nThere are some uses for ducks, such as using feathers for pillows or padding, the down for quilts, I guess you can cook their eggs and meat for food (Mmmmm... duck jerky), a…nd their guts can be used as chum or bait for other creatures.
A duck has feathers (not fur) and it does have a tail.
They have many uses...eating, killing bugs, shooting, eggs, pets, show, presents at easter...
esquiver i think and for future references go on English to French translation.
The platypus looks a bit like that. The platypus, however, is a completely independent animal which is not made up of beavers, ducks or any other creature. Its tail is vastl…y different to that of a beaver's, and even its bill is a different shape and size to a duck's. So in reality, the platypus looks nothing like the description in the question.
