War master among animals

  War has always been a conflict between humans, but since ancient times, there has been almost no war without animals. From searching for bombs to patrolling the coast, from transporting materials to charging into battle, animals can be found everywhere on the battlefield. In addition to traditional war horses, war elephants and other traditional warfare animals, there are also some incredible animals that participate in wars, such as cats, shrimps, bats, and lions. The use of these animals often surprises wars and wins them by surprise.
  Horses
  in the history of warfare, no kind of animal status comparable with horses. As early as 5500 years ago, humans began to train war horses in what is now Kazakhstan, and war horses quickly spread in Eurasia.
  Ancient Egypt and China used horse-drawn chariots to fight. The invention of saddles and stirrups further expanded the role of horses in war. The Mongols conquered most of the earth on horses and with bows and arrows. In medieval Europe, the knight riding a horse is a symbol of invincibility.
  Elephant
  Elephant as the largest land animal in the history of the war left a heavy sum. Well-trained elephants can rush enemy formations to pieces, pierce targets with long teeth, and even smash enemies to pieces with their noses. They can also wear armor, carrying archers or javelins to break through enemy lines. The Kingdom of Ancient India may be the first country to train elephants into “living tanks.” Alexander the Great encountered enemy elephant herds when he conquered India. The Carthaginians and Romans also used elephants to fight. Faced with the rushing elephants, ordinary horses will inevitably be frightened, and the soldiers will also have a fear.
  Mule convoys
  of mules is a humble animal, but with brilliant performance in the history of warfare. When the Roman legions were marching and fighting, every 10 soldiers carried a mule.
  Napoleon also rode a mule across the Alps. During World War I, the US military used 570,000 horses and mules, and lost 68,000 horses in combat. Even today, U.S. special forces rely on mules to maintain transportation lines in remote mountainous areas of Afghanistan.
  Camel Cavalry
  Camels currently only serve a few troops, but in history, camel cavalry was once very popular.
  Before the age of mechanization, desert operations in North Africa and the Middle East were inseparable from camels. This strong animal can survive under harsh conditions. It is said that not only can camels transport large amounts of supplies, but the smell they emit can also startle enemy horses. The Arabs often let the camels put on armors to charge into battle and make great achievements.
  Bat bomb
  during World War II, in retaliation for the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, a Navy dentist came up with an idea: tie firebombs at bats, let them sneak into the Japanese city of arson.
  The then President of the United States Roosevelt approved the plan, and the US military spent $2 million to test 6,000 bats. Although they could not be put into actual combat in the end, the bat bombs did destroy a simulated Japanese village, a U.S. Army hangar, and a car of a certain general.
  Angry bees
  little bees and humble, but once enraged, it will become an effective weapon.
  In a war between the Turks and the Romans in BC, the Turks lured the Roman commander-in-chief Pompey and his men to eat poisonous honey. The Roman soldiers vomited one after another, and some were insane, and they were easily defeated by the Turks. At the end of the 7th century AD, there was also a case of using bee soldiers and butterflies to defeat the enemy on the Erhai Sea in Dali, Yunnan. The well-known Lin Zexu also used the Wasp Butch to defeat the British army superbly, leaving a brilliant mark in the history of the Anti-British War. From ancient times to modern times, angry bees have basically been used as offensive weapons. Now, American scientists have discovered another more peaceful use: using bees to detect landmines.
  Snap Finger Shrimp Escort
  During World War II, the Japanese Navy desperately caught small shrimp called snapfinger shrimp, and then dropped them into the waters where the US fleet was anchored. Why is this? It turned out that in order to prevent Japanese submarine attacks, the U.S. Navy installed a listening device underwater in the fleet berth. If the submarine comes, the listening device can hear the submarine’s progress. When the snap finger shrimp moves in the water, it makes a sound like a human snap finger. Countless snap-finger prawns gathered together, and the noise produced could drown out the sound of the submarine, making it impossible for the U.S. military to detect the submarine attacking. As a result, the Japanese submarine quietly approached the U.S. fleet under the cover of snap-finger shrimp, and fired torpedoes at the U.S. warship, which suffered heavy losses.
  Persian cats appear to be “soul”
  cats. Not only do they catch mice, they are kept as pets. In history, cats have been able to participate in wars and have won a great victory.
  In 525 BC, the Persians used cat warfare to conquer the ancient city of Perus in the Nile Delta in eastern Egypt. In ancient times, the Egyptians have always regarded cats as “gods.” When the Persians attacked the city of Perus, the soldiers had to carry a cat in addition to their weapons. When the two armies met each other in short arms, the Persian soldiers threw cats on the Egyptians. The “God” suddenly appeared, which made the Egyptians at a loss. They had no choice but to let the cats crawl around on him, unable to throw guns and arrows, while the Persians took advantage of the opportunity to swarm and attacked Perus easily.
  Lion’s Mouth
  lion, as the king of the forest is hard to tame, let alone the Lions service of humanity, the Lions may have been involved in war in ancient times.
  BC, the 18th dynasty Pharaoh Amon Hotel II and the 19th dynasty Pharaoh Ramses I used to be very important in the expansion campaign and the flag-raising resistance of the Asian territorial peoples of Egypt. The fierce lion wins the battle.
  During the battle, the two armies faced each other, and the Pharaoh’s army placed more than ten hungry lions that had been fasted for many days in iron cages behind the knights. When Mingjin started the war, the knight quickly drew away, and a group of hungry lions roared and charged towards the enemy. The Beastmaster suddenly appeared, the terrified war horses hoofed and neighed, and the knights fell. When the lion saw a person, he caught and bitten, causing countless deaths and injuries.
  Crocodile
  Except for the fierce wars of lions, crocodiles have always been fierce and bloody creatures, and there are stories of using crocodiles to fight in wars in history.
  It was in 1945, and the Pacific War was nearing end. One day in mid-February, on Langley Island in the Bay of Bengal, British troops surrounded a Japanese army that had invaded Myanmar. More than 1,000 Japanese soldiers were trapped in a waist-deep swamp, unable to move. This area is the crocodile’s den. During the day, the crocodile was scared to hide in the water by the sound of guns. At night, when the tide receded, the ferocious crocodiles rushed out and pounced on the Japanese soldiers trapped in the swamp. The screams lasted all night. Almost 1,000 people have become a delicacy in the mouths of crocodiles, and the swamps have turned into a sea of ​​blood. At dawn, there were only more than 20 Japanese soldiers left.
  Sea lions patrol
  marine mammals has excellent underwater vision and hearing, and very fast, up to 40 kilometers per hour, continuous dive to 300 meters. The US Navy took advantage of these characteristics and trained sea lions to act as patrolmen. In addition to preventing saboteurs from invading underwater, sea lions can also carry cameras to shoot underwater videos to detect the conditions of the seabed. On some occasions, a sea lion, two operators and an inflatable boat can replace a battleship to search for targets under the sea.
