When Christopher Columbus arrived in the Bahamas (in the New World), he encountered natives. He assumed that he was on an island off the coast of India, even though India was …actually thousands of miles away, so he assumed these natives had to be "Indians". (MORE)
One of my favourite past-times is driving and exploring with my husband (and my dog). In WikiAnswers, I am constantly "On the wallaby". Passionate about all things Australian, I roam all over WikiAnswers, answering questions that have the remotest connection to Australiana ... and some that don't ... as my interests are far and wide.
A female wallaby is ready to breed from 14-19 months of age. She will give birth to embryonic young that are extremely undeveloped. The tiny newborn joey is blind, hairless, a…nd about the size of a bean. When it is born, it crawls into its mother's pouch where it attaches to one of the teats which swells inside the joey's mouth, ensuring it will not be dislodged when the mother moves. The joey is reay to leave the pouch permanently at about 8-9 months of age, but is likely to remain in its mother's home range until it is around 2 years old. Wild red-necked wallabies live 7-10 years, while in captivity this period extends to 12-15 years. (MORE)

Among the very first native Americans encountered by explorers were the Beothuk tribe of Newfoundland and Labrador, who made extensive use of local red pigment to paint their …own hair, skin, clothes, homes, babies, the corpses of their dead, their weapons and tools - everything was painted red. The term "Red Indians" was therefore logically and sensibly applied to them and later extended to all natives in North America. (MORE)
Well... one thing that's different is they spend a long period of time in the water as tadpoles before actually becoming a frog. Also, most animals don't lose their tale after… growing legs like frogs. Lastly, frogs grow while in a pond/lake while other animals grow in the womb of the mother.(MORE)
