If a person knocks his head hard against a tree trunk, it will be enough to fall to the ground unconscious, while a “woodpecker” does this thousands of times throughout his life, and does not lose consciousness.

It is known that a woodpecker pecks tree trunks with its beak, which leads us to wonder why it is not harmed by this act. Compared to humans, such act ends up in the hospital complaining of concussion and other symptoms, and woodpeckers are not harmed at all!

Woodpeckers hit their beak at a tree at a rate of 15 miles per hour, and can peck into a tree trunk 100 clicks per minute, and in a day they may click about 12,000 clicks at a rate of 20 times per second.

Experts say that there are three reasons that help the woodpecker to withstand these constant shocks: it has strong neck muscles, a flexible backbone, and its tongue wraps around its skull in a terrible divine design.
