However, the more you learn about ducks, the more fascinating they become. Then you realize, that even an ordinary bird like a duck can be extraordinary when you give it a little bit of extra attention.#4Image credits: _Fruitface_#5Image credits: imgur.com#6Image credits: Duck_pageThere are species of ducks all over the world, on every continent, except for Antarctica. What’s incredibly cool is that adult males are called drakes, which evokes all kinds of mythological associations.#7Image credits: boopyouonthenose#8Image credits: thomasya13#9Image credits: Duck_pageThe biology of ducks is nothing to laugh at: their feathers are so waterproof that the down next to their skin remains dry even when they dive underwater. What’s more, baby ducks are able to swim right after their down dries after hatching. That is just fascinatingly cute.#10Image credits: Duck_page#11Image credits: LewdGateKeeper#12Image credits: Duck_pageAnother interesting fact about ducks is that most species of this bird find a new mate each breeding season. That’s like having a new wife or husband each year. Ducks aren’t as picky about food as human toddlers: they’ll gladly eat almost anything, from grass and insects to fish and fruit.#13Image credits: quack_page#14Image credits: Duck_page#15Image credits: Duck_pageThough we’re used to thinking that ducks go ‘quack, there aren’t many duck species who say that. Most male ducks are the silent type, but those that ‘speak’ usually growl, grunt, groan, squeak, whistle, or bray. Furthermore, female ducks are much bigger fans of ‘talking’ than their male counterparts. We hope that after reading these facts you’ll agree that ducks truly are amazing creatures. And cute too.#16Image credits: _babyducklings_#17Image credits: Serious_Chocolate#18Image credits: Duck_page#19Image credits: Duck_page#20Image credits: Duck_page#21Image credits: Duck_page#22Image credits: Duck_page#23Image credits: Mackenzie Lynn #24Image credits: dramaticmanchild#25Image credits: ivereadthings#26Image credits: Duck_page#27Image credits: Duck_page#28Image credits: rew_searle#29Image credits: A_NICE_CUP_OF_STFU#30Image credits: BunnyofDoom98#31Image credits: Duck_page#32Image credits: Duck_page#33Image credits: Duck_page#34Image credits: Duck_page#35Image credits: Duck_page
