What Image Comes To Mind When You Hear This Hummingbird Snore?

Mar 4, 2015
There are over 300 species of hummingbirds that inhabit the western hemisphere. The birds are known for their tiny stature and lightning-fast wings. It's hard to consider that these birds will stop for anything. But, like most species, the hummingbird sleeps at night, entering a state called torpor. It is especially hard for hummingbirds to wake from this state since it slows their heart rate.

A scientist in Peru happened upon a hummingbird resting in this state and was astonished. He discovered that hummingbirds actually "snore," which happens to be their way of awakening themselves from such a deep sleep. The strange "snore" coming from this hummingbird is absolutely perfect.

We think that it sounds like a cartoon cannonball falling from the sky. Share what image came to your mind in the comments below.
