“Imagine you are an animal and work as that animal would today (using four legs and a tail, with flippers, underwater, etc.).”

It can detect food at a faster speed than any other living creature and has even been written up in the Guinness Book of World Records as the fastest forager. This semi-aquatic critter can even smell food while underwater!
