Random Fact of the day

If held vertically with feet touching the floor, an hour old infant will invoke a walking reflex.

A six week old infant loses this reflex and will no longer imitate a walking motion if held upright.

If the six week old infant is placed in water, the reflex returns and the infant will propel their legs forward.

 Bonus fact:

Elephants are the only mammal that can not jump.

And now you know.
