Long-range weapons allow people to move away from each other in a fight, and injure the opponent as much as possible while avoiding their own damage, providing users with significant initiative.
The early long-range weapons of mankind were bows and arrows, which appeared after the ancients learned to make stone tools; while the more intuitive and efficient hot-weapon guns only appeared hundreds of years ago. But there is a group of “marksmen” in the animal world, they are born with sharp “guns” and good “marksmanship”. It’s just that their “gun” is not the kind of trigger, but a certain part of their body, such as pincers, mouth, eyes, tentacles, etc.; the bullets they shoot are not “iron eggs” with gunpowder, but Blood, mucus, venom, or acupuncture.
Who are they?
The Cannon Carrier is a beetle with a body length of 5 to 13 millimeters and a blue-gray or orange-yellow body. It mainly lives in Asia, Africa and East India.
There are two “fuel bins” in the body of the gunner, which store the naturally synthesized hydroquinone and hydrogen peroxide in the body. When they encounter external threats or pressure, they will inject the gas from these two “fuel bins” into a special “combustion bin” at the same time, and add water and enzymes secreted by the human body-this reaction process can produce Enough heat boils the mixture and produces a lot of gas, which also contains the highly toxic reactant benzoquinone. Finally, they can spray the hot mixture through the spout on the tail of the body with appropriate pressure. The whole process takes only a fraction of a second.
The most amazing thing is that the spout on the body of the gun can adjust the direction freely, by turning the abdomen flexibly, firing forward, backward, left and right.
Therefore, the artillery armor is also called “live fort”.
Gun prawns, also known as drum prawns, are mud-green in color and have two claws of different sizes. They are about 5 cm long and the giant claws are about 2.5 cm long.
The spear shrimp lives in the shallow waters of the tropical ocean. When hunting, it will quickly close the giant claws and eject a water stream at a speed of up to 100 kilometers per hour to stun or kill small fish, crabs and other prey. Such high-speed water flow will cause cavitation, forming a very small low-pressure bubble, which will burst quickly in the water. The temperature of the bubble burst is extremely high, reaching almost 4700°C, and the sound is as high as 210 decibels, which is louder than the real gunshot.
It is the torpedo boat of the animal kingdom!
Horned lizards are distributed in the deserts of the southwestern United States and Mexico, and can reach up to 12.5 cm in length. They have sword-shaped spines on their heads, resembling toads, and their bodies are flat.
The horned lizards are covered with sharp and hard scales, and each scale is like a sharp dagger, which is their important defensive weapon. Some “enemies” are very clever and know the scales on the horned lizards, so they don’t need to bite them directly, but try to kill the horned lizards with their claws and then eat them. In this situation, the horned lizard will suffocate its strength, forcing the blood pressure on its head to suddenly rise, and the capillaries around the corners of the eyes will burst instantly, and a burst of red blood will be ejected from the eyes. The maximum range can be Up to 2 meters. This blood contains toxins that can cause certain damage to mammals. Even the most powerful “enemy” will be frightened by the oncoming blood spray, and the horned lizard will take the opportunity to quickly escape.
Do you count as a chemical weapon expert in the animal kingdom?
Velvet worms are also called slime worms, much like caterpillars, with many feet and pairs, with curved claws on them. They are indeed as their name suggests, and they look like velvet in appearance, soft and moist.
The two sides of the velvet worm’s head are equipped with powerful “cannons”, that is, a specialized foot that can spray white or almost transparent mucus composed of protein at a spray distance of more than 20 cm. The more the prey struck by the mucus struggles, the tighter the mucus wraps up. Once the mucus comes in contact with oxygen in the air, it will harden, making it impossible for the prey to break free.
What a cruel caster!
Archerfish mostly live in tropical coasts and rivers in the Indian Ocean and Pacific Ocean. They are about 20 cm long, nearly ovoid in shape, with a flat head, a sharp mouth, a flat side, and large eyes.
There is a very thin groove in the mouth of the water-shooting fish, and the tongue can be ejected to form a “device” similar to a “water gun barrel”, as long as the water sucked into the mouth is taken from the “gun barrel” When it is launched, it can transform into a turbulent water column and hit the target. Small insects such as flies, mosquitoes, and spiders on branches and grass blades near the water surface are all captured by archerfish. Some archerfish can even accurately shoot small insects 2 meters above the water surface.
The water-shooting fish can be regarded as mastering the “water and land missile” technology of the animal kingdom.
The poisonous cobra lives in the savannah areas of tropical and subtropical Africa. Its body is gray, olive or brown, and its body length is about 1 meter. When they encounter danger, they will coil their bodies, and the fangs that release the venom will spray the venom only when they have to. This venom can spray more than 2 meters away.
There are many types of poisonous cobras, among which King Kong cobra is very toxic. According to relevant data records, King Kong King Cobra can easily spray venom up to 5 meters away. Moreover, when they spray the venom, they will lock the prey’s eyes, making the attack accurate and ruthless. Even if it fails to shoot into the eyes of the prey, the skin of the prey will be corroded to varying degrees and even cause the skin to rot.
Good at locking targets, and shooting distance is super far, the sniper of the animal kingdom is none other than him!
Echidna resemble hedgehogs and are found in mainland Australia, Tasmania and New Guinea.
Echidna has spines all over its body, including its abdomen, face, and legs. These spines evolved from hair. They are of varying lengths and are very sharp and have barbs. When encountering an enemy, the echidna will curl up into a spherical body like a hedgehog to protect itself. If the intruder is still reluctant, the echidna will turn its back to the enemy and shoot the needles on the body surface into the invader’s. in vivo. After a period of time, new acupuncture will grow in the places where the acupuncture falls off, and the ammunition is unlimited!
Echidna, the archer of the animal kingdom, can beat you down even if his back is facing you!
