    schema:description "Scientists found that male cockatoos in Australia make their own drumsticks and their own music. Each bird plays it's own different rhythm at it's own different speed to attract a mate. Ravens will hide their food if they know they're being watched. A trait normally only found in people and some apes. Odd Science: Incredible Creatures is filled with weird and wacky facts that you've never heard before. Read about the dinosaur that used camouflage, wonder at the penguins that 'propose' to each other with rocks and tell your friends that the dodo was actually quite smart! There are facts about infrared-seeing goldfish, facts about a hummingbird's diet and facts about strange creatures like 'ghost' octopuses. James Olstein beautifully illustrates these odd facts in a retro-inspired, quirky style. His designs aren't meant to be taken literally, but you'll laugh-out-load when you see a spider relaxing on a pool float and dinosaurs playing with a ball! Prepare to laugh, marvel and learn. Being a geek has never been so cool."@en ;
