如果沒有冰箱,你會怎樣保存食物?有研究指埃莉氏隼會把抓到的獵物塞進石縫裡,讓獵物無法逃走,到需要時再食用。這行為多出現於繁殖期,估計是為確保幼鳥有足夠的食糧。

how could you keep your food fresh without a refrigerator? Eleonora’s falcons have been observed trapping their preys fresh by jamming them in rock crevasses for later meals. they often do that when they rear their chicks, to ensure they got enough food to feed.
