10. The Gazelle's Blood Cooling System
The brain of a gazelle is
cooled by a special cooling system located on the right side of its head.
Gazelles and other fast-running animals have breathing canals.
Hundreds of small blood
veins spread in the large blood accumulations behind these canals. The air the
gazelle inhales cools this area and hence the blood that passes through these
small blood veins. These small veins then unite in a single blood vessel that
conveys blood to the brain. As a result of this system, the gazelle is not
affected by the sharp increase in its body heat while running. Without this
cooling system for its blood, the gazelle would feint from the African heat
