Why do birds have hollow bones?
Approximatley 1,000 years ago...
Sorry, man. I can fly because my bones are all hollow, which makes me lightwight
Dude, this is so unfair! How come you get to fly and I don't? I wanna fly!
A few days later...
Yo, can you get me an apple from up there?
Fine. But I can't help you forever. You have to think of something.
I'm so hungry. I haven't eaten in days! I don't think I can survive. Goodbye cruel world!!!
And so, the species with solid bones eventually died out.
Soon, the bird with hollow bones reproduced and gave birth to toucans also with hollow bones
After many hundreds of years, the birds evolved with more hollow bones. Nature selected for the trait of hollow bones to survive, They finally adapted to their environment.
