When we as humans are going to be in the hot sun too long we put on some sunscreen. But what do animals do? Can they burn like us?
It’s actually a neat trick from mother nature. One example are Hippos’. Their skin can naturally produce sunscreen. Crazy right? Their bodies release a red fluid that works as an anti-bacterial and a sunscreen protecting them in the hot sun of where they mostly live in Africa.
I wish our bodies could do that!
