When do animals know how to count. Some individuals, Such as zebrafish can count when they are only four days old,

This is  an ingreadient that intelligent design does for animals, elephants know the difference betwen low and high numbers of fruit, and for instance hony bees and salamander know how to count,

This is  an ingreadient that intelligent design does for animals, Elephants know the difference betwen low and high numbers of fruit, and for instance Stingrays honey bees and salamander know how to count., 

What is interesting is that at least one plant, the Venus flytrap, also knows how to count.

For Darwinists, 
animal intelligence is an enormous dilemma, and plant intelligence even more so.But in a created world we would expect animals and plants to show evidence of intelligence..

Climate change has altered the colour change of animals

Some animals have adapted seasonal coat colour change. Now, climate change has begun to affect the extent and timing of snow cover and some individuals are mismatched to their background for a part of the years, for instance populations of white-tailed jack rabbits, are under selective pressure to better match coat colour to reduced snow cover.

 The change in colour is affecteded by intelligent design, but the animal do not know when to change their colour.

Jupiterin ja Saturnuksen kuissa olevat halkeamat voivat olla liian harvinaisia tarjotakseen olosuhteet elämälle.

Europan ja Enceladuksen merenpohjan murtumien uskotaan antavan energiaa ja ravinteita, jotka ovat tärkeitä kaikelle siellä mahdollisesti olevalle elämälle, mutta ne eivät välttämättä koe tarpeeksi stressiä murtuakseen.

Koska näiden kylmien maailmojen ytimiä ei voi tarkkailla suoraan, niistä tiedetään hyvin vähän.

An asteroid called 2023 DZ2 will zip past the Earth at half the distance the Earth is from the moon or about 173,000 kilometrers from Earth, The space rock that caused such havoc in Russia  was just 18 metres across . This pace rock is between  44 and 99 meters in diametre.

The asteroid is known as an Apollo-class asteroid  As according to evolution,, it hails from the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter, 

It is three times the size of the one that blew out windows in Chelyabinsk, Russia in 2013 will zip by Earth at half the distance of the moon on Saturday  or March 25.

Macaques made human like stone tools

How many of the world´s stone flakes tools were actually made by men? Now it seems that a lot was made by macaques,  some were almost identical to those made by men, dating to at least 3 million years ago.  A  research team in Thailand witnessed monkeys accidentally creating flakes as they struck nuts between two stones.

They were the same as macaques made today. Lydia Luncz at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany SAYS that capuchins, chimpanzees and long-tailed macaques are the only non-human primates known to use stone tools in the wild,

Monkey tales or Darwinian just-so-stories still flourish in science journals although it is questionable whether they have anything to do with real science.

Darwinian story is false

How do animals use bright coloration to warn of predators?_According to evolution, amphibians use warning coloration probable when they flee or  “intentionally displaying a hidden feature.” This work demonstrates such a trait how a trait may be through avoided through “intermediary phenotypes´”

But The evolution story is almost false as these stories often are. ,

Frst egg laying animal found in South America

According to evolution, round 70 million years ago, a small, furry, platypus-like creature shuffled along the banks of an ancient lake. This would not have been a remarkable occurrence, except for one thing: The lake was in present-day Argentina, not Australia.

The discovery of this animal, dubbed Patagorhynchus pascuali, is the oldest fossil of the egg-laying mammal group known as monotremes ever discovered in South America. 

So how did this animal find itself in Australia?

According to evolution, Australia, South America and Antarctica (as well as parts of Africa and Asia) were  together in a supercontinent called Gondwana
