The Garden Gnome’s Biology
Gnomes are very similar to humans, excepting their size and when one examines the gnomes physiology it is not only found to be interesting but also rather normal. Nothing supernatural about the gnome.
Gnomes have all five senses. They are much better than a humans but due to the fact that the gnomes live in closer tune with nature it can be assumed that their senses are required to be better. The gnome’s eye has many millions of cones in it. Cones are the sensors in the eye that register light and thus the gnome is able to see quite well in the dark. Interestingly the ear, which is large, can be pointed much like a cat’s in any direction. The nose contains ninety five million sensory receptor cells which is nineteen times that of a human. Thus a gnome has a much greater sense of smell. The sense of touch is especially acute in the fingertips which are said to be as sensitive as those of a blind person.
It has been noted that garden gnomes are extremely fast and strong, in fact seven times stronger than a human. This is achieved because of the gnome’s large heart, wider blood circulation, large lungs and special muscles. All gnomes have two types of muscle, white and red. White muscles are of great value in quick sprints and brief lifting and moving. They allow a build up of extra carbon dioxide which red muscle tissue does not. Though the red muscle tissue is required for long term work and movement.
Also the foot bones and arches of gnomes are extremely strong, probably due to the need for speed, as they say. The gnome also secretes as special kind of super-adrenaline when in high-level performance situations and when in need of stamina.
