Chat in preparation for pokemon go go fest 2021 in which chat the usual regional pokemon is gon na, be released for ticket holders around the world to catch as a wild, animal biologist and pokemon trainer. I like to combine my passion for two into one glorious pop culture: animal comparison sandwich, and that is what we are going to be having today, my friends by looking into three incredible adaptations that chat have that are very similar to the real life pokemon of our World animals, so you ready join the safari and let’s get started. So, firstly, chat is a normal flying type pokemon, also known as the music note pokemon that was first introduced in generation. Four chats, like their names suggest are quite the chatterboxes. In fact, chat is the only known pokemon that learns the move, chatter, which attacks using a sound wave based on words that it has learned a move which may also confuse the target and the move. Chatter, coincidentally enough reminds me of a beautiful animal known as the chattering lorry they can be found in north maliku indonesia, and have a lifespan of 28 to 32 years. However, because of deforestation, they are now listed by the iucn red list as vulnerable to extinction. They feed in large groups, and sometimes even in the company of other parrots, with their calls being described as nasally loud and quavery. Apparently, i too can also be described as that, but one of the most amazing things about the chattering lorry is their tongue because it is most specialized for feeding on nectar.

They have tiny hair, like structures known as papillae on the end of their tongue and they’re. In a u shape so that way when they extend their tongue to feed the papillae, stand on end, allowing the nectar and the pollen to be soaked up. Isn’T that amazing speaking of tongues, let’s move on to chata being tongue tied, apparently according to some pokedex entries for chat, their tongues are similar to humans, thus allowing them to imitate human speech, but is this true of the real life pokemon of our world? Do parrots? Have similar tongues to us? Well, it turns out that parrots use their tongues to create vowel. Like sounds just like we do, except their tongues, have a few extra cool things parrots have a forked bone in their tongue called the paraglossal. This gives them the ability to grasp and hold on to things with their tongue aka a prehensile tongue. Now they don’t only have just one bone in their tongue. They actually have five in total that together make up the hyoid apparatus. Now, while we humans, don’t actually have a bone inside of our tongue, we do have one underneath our tongue wan na guess what it’s called the hyoid now when it comes to mimicry it turns out. Chatot is quite clever, for they have quite a special defense mechanism. They use their ability to mimic the cries of other pokemon to scare away potential predators, but do real life animals of our world do something similar well let’s.

Take, for example, the adorable burrowing owl they actually mimic. The rattling sounds of rattlesnakes to scare away competitors from entering their burrows, but also there’s. The brown thornbill in a recent study, scientists found that they actually mimic a chorus of other birds. Alarm sounds when humans disturb their nest. So once again, it looks like the pokemon creators really did their research and looking into the amazing world of animals to take some of their amazing adaptations, like mimicry their impressive tongues and just being good old shatter boxes to make pokemon that much more realistic. Speaking of pokemon goes go fest. Are you excited? I certainly am in fact. Earlier this week i looked into what animal is like a real life mellowetta, which you can click on right here or maybe you want to learn more about parrots. I have a video for that too, because i use harmsworth natural history to look back in time to look more into these amazing birds. So you can also check out that video.
