But what if there was a gadget that replaced the traditional torch and worked better than your smartphone’s flashlight? Well, I’ve found it.
Hummingbirds– known for flying backwards and being amongst the smallest birds in the world– also snore. (We had no clue!) Weighing less than a penny, these birds get their name from the humming sounds they make from their beating wings.
