Animals - they are great builders,using simple materials bu employing sound engineering principles. Man has learned how to construct suspension bridges from spiders. Beavers construct dams with tree branches. The dams beavers build bear nut only their own weight but also resist the lateral pressure of water.The art of building construction - Are we not learning much from the animals.?

You have a point there . Even ants are ingenious in getting over difficulties . Aren't insects more clever than most of us humans ?

the animals and insects work with their instincts. this had been provided for they are not as much as capable of thinking reasonably as man. man can think, plan and calculate. man will have to use all the talents that is given them to enhance the way of living and everything else that goes with it.

Animals are amazing in what they can do. I've always been intrigued by how ants work. They are so small, but always busy.
