Life is difficult as a duck, but we have hacks to survive.


We can’t fly and our feathers don’t keep us warm.

You might be wondering how ducks keep warm. The answer is, they don’t. Ducks are not warm-blooded like you and me. We have some internal controls that regulate our body temperature, but ducks do not. Instead, they must find ways to stay warm in a world where it’s often very cold outside!

Ducks have no feathers to help keep them insulated from the cold outside air of winter time or even when it gets cool inside your house during summer months (ducks can get hot!). Instead, this is where their waterproof down comes into play – all over their body! Here are some examples:

We can’t run.

It’s no secret that ducks aren’t able to run. We’re built for short bursts of speed and distance, which means we have to work harder than other animals. This can be especially challenging if you’re trying to get somewhere fast, but there are ways around it!

You have probably noticed that most birds have hollow bones, which make them light enough to fly. Well, we don’t have hollow bones—our legs are built with dense bone structures so that we can run quickly for short periods of time. This means we need less energy than other animals when running short distances!

The easiest way around this is by not running at all; instead opt for more efficient modes of transportation like bicycles (if available) or skateboards (even better).

We can’t bite, kick, or scratch predators.

  • We can’t bite, kick, or scratch predators. Ducks have no teeth, so if an animal tries to eat us or our eggs, we’re pretty much up shit creek without a paddle.
  • We can’t fly. Our wings are good for gliding in water and helping us steer our way through it—but they don’t lift us into the air like those of other birds do.
  • We can’t run away from danger because most of us are too heavy to get more than a few feet off the ground before falling back down again (and even then there’s no guarantee that you’ll be able to keep going).
  • We need water to live—and when we get wet from the outside in (i.e., when it rains), it makes getting dry even more difficult since everything gets soaking wet again! This is also why your feathers feel gross after being out in the rain: They absorb water so quickly that they become heavy and clumpy instead of fluffy and smooth like usual…just imagine what would happen if you tried keeping them clean when this happens every time I go outside for fun!

We can’t survive without water.

We’re aquatic creatures, and as such we need water to survive. Without it, our bodies will begin to shut down within a few days.

In fact, if you were to remove all of the moisture from your body—including your blood—you would die in less than an hour.

So when you see a duck swimming happily along in a pond or lake, just know that this is literally what keeps them alive!

We get wet from the inside out.

Ducks are water birds.

That means they spend a lot of time in the water and have a high water content, which makes them very large (in terms of mass) when compared to other animals and humans.

This also means that ducks cannot stay dry or warm because they have so much water inside their bodies. The only way for most ducks to avoid being wet all the time is by swimming around in ponds, rivers, lakes and streams where there is plenty of fresh drinking water available nearby so that they can take some baths now and then!

Our feet are gross and disgusting.

As we have learned, ducks have webbed feet. This allows them to swim and waddle around on land. The downside of this is that it creates an ideal environment for bacteria to thrive in. The problem is that the beaks of ducks are also covered with bacteria, as well as their feathers and skin.

Bacteria are everywhere in our world but they like certain places more than others—like your feet! It’s not just because you’re standing still more often than walking around; it’s also because the skin on your feet is usually dry compared to other parts of your body (like say, the palms of your hands).

Our bills are flexible, but not that flexible.

You’ll be amazed at how many ways we’re able to use our bills for tasks that others can accomplish with their hands. For example, ducks cannot use their bills to pick things up or hold them, like a pencil or a bagel. Ducks are not capable of using their bills as tools for cutting things into bite-sized pieces, like carrots or oranges. Ducks cannot even write things with the pointy end of the bill (unless they’re using it as a drumstick).

Finally, there’s no way that a duck could ever play an instrument like a flute with just its mouth—or worse yet, hack away at some sheet music! You see? We have so much potential in our mouths and yet we’re only limited by what other kinds of animals can do with theirs.

We can be cute killers.

When we see a duck, we think of a cute animal that goes quack and swims around. The truth is, though, that our friend the duck can be brutal. Ducks are able to kill fish but they do not eat them because they cannot digest them without chewing first. So how does this happen?

Ducks have two methods of killing fish: crushing them with their beaks or drowning them in their mouths. If you’ve ever seen a cartoon where an angry person gets hit by an eggplants or banana peels (or even real life), then you know what it’s like to see someone clobbered with a hard object thrown at high speed. That’s how ducks kill fish too! They will pick up their prey on land after diving into water and bring them back up again in mid-air before letting gravity do its work while splashing water everywhere (and possibly making some “quacking” noises). This method works best when there are no other predators around since those animals will steal your catch if given the chance.

Ducks pass on their weaknesses to their offspring so that they are able to help each other survive as a group.

Ducks pass on their weaknesses to their offspring so that they are able to help each other survive as a group.

Ducks can be very useful for survival because of the way they work together and help each other out. The duck breeds who have the most problems will pass them on to their offspring so that they are able to help each other survive as a group. This is why it’s important not to throw away any ducklings, even if they seem pretty useless at first!
