There is no denying that a yawning snake is actually quite adorable, but interestingly, the action does not indicate sleepiness!
As you know, snakes pick up scents with their tongue, so opening their mouth so wide allows them to sample the air on a much bigger scale. If the scent they pick up indicates that there’s food nearby, the snake might “yawn” even wider as a preparation to swallow its potential prey.
The Meaning of Howling
Some people may try to quiet their dogs when they howl but there’s a reason for your dog doing this. This is a dog’s way of yelling. Just like yelling is a way for humans to release any angry feelings they have inside, dogs do the same thing by howling.
Owners assume that dogs howl in order to assert their dominance but in reality, they are doing so because it feels good for them to do it.
Clicking Bird Tongue
Parrot keepers know this all too well. You feel annoyed and you don't know why and then you realize there is some irregular clicking sound that is driving you mental. The culprit is your beloved bird who is, again, clicking its tongue against the inside of its beak.
Well, apparently, Mr. Feathers is doing it to entertain himself or to ask for some attention, so if you wish to make the clicking stop and your bird happy, just pick it up and show it some love.
Exposed Dog Belly Is a Sign of Respect
When a dog exposes its belly to you, it shows that it respects you and is being submissive. It might also be a sign that it wants to play with you. You can encourage them to continue this behavior by rubbing their belly.
If you do rub their belly, then they’ll want to continue this behavior as they’ve learned that you are going to give them a nice massage every time they do this. However, a dog can also roll on its back when attacked by another animal.
While you may think your dog is trying to yodel, this may be your dog trying to communicate with you. In fact, many owners swear that their dogs can speak to them.
A writer for an animal journal comments about his dog's yowling: “Our German Shepherd rescue, the sweetest dog we have ever owned (unless you happen to be a cat), is 9. She ‘talks‘ about everything! Grumbles, over being denied a cat lunch, has 5-minute conversations over going out for a walk, exchanges pleasantries (you would swear) over how happy she is to see someone.”
