Random Interesting And Snapple Facts About Animals Part 6

Its been sometime since I updated this blog so I am now very much in the mood of sharing to you guys the things that really interests me when it comes to animals. You know what it is? Its their unusualness that really keeps my brain tingling very much like a working clock. What it says is that animals can never be measured bluntly; there is still much to learn about them and appreciate about them and thats why we are amazed when we hear these strange but true facts about animals.

I think i have been keeping you for so long so here it goes. . . .

Leatherback turtles' throats have spines that keep slippery prey like jellyfish from sliding out and escaping.

Amazon ants raid the nests of other ants to steal the other ants' larvae to hatch in their own nest. Then they use the hatched ants to do all their work for them. Amazon ants are so adapted to fighting that they can't take care of themselves or their nest - that's why they steal and raise other ants as slaves.

Dolphins can swim and sleep at the same time.

In 7 years, one female cat and her babies can theoretically be the source of 420,000 cats.

Male anglerfish physically attach themselves to females early in life. The females continue to grow but the males don't. The males are parasites. Over time, they lose most of their inner organs and depend on the female's bodies to survive. Two males may live off one female.

Armadillos have four babies at a time, and they are always the same sex.

A large majority of white cats with blue eyes are deaf. White cats with only one blue eye are deaf only in the ear closest to the blue eye. White cats with orange eyes do not have this disability.

Animals that lay eggs don’t have bellybuttons.

Slugs have 4 noses.

Elephants sleep for only 2 hours a day.

Fish cough.

A snail breathes through its foot.

Shrimp can only swim backward.

Male satin bower birds build "bowers," or shelters, out of sticks and leaves. The birds decorate the bowers with brightly coloured objects they find, like buttons, bottle caps, cloth, clothes pins, paper clips, string, and gum wrappers. Using charcoal softened with saliva to make black paint and chewed berries to make red, bower birds paint the inside of their bowers.

Oysters can change from one gender to another and back again.

Fish can drown.

Lizards communicate by doing push-ups.

Squid can have eyes the size of volleyballs.

The bullfrog is the only animal that never sleeps.

Elephants go through six sets of teeth in their lifetime. When their last set wears down, they cannot eat anymore and die.

African elephants take at least 3 baths a day.

Elephants trunks can be up to 7 feet long and weigh up to 300 pounds.

Anteaters walk on their knuckles.

It is physically impossible for pigs to look up into the sky.

To escape the grip of a crocodile's jaws, push your thumbs into its eyeballs-it will let you go instantly.

Reindeer like to eat bananas.

The average chocolate bar has 8 insects' legs in it.

A cockroach can live nine days without its head before it starves to death.

A rhinoceros horn is made of compacted hair.

A shrimp's heart is in their head.

In a study of 200,000 ostriches over a period of 80 years, no one reported a single case where an ostrich buried its head in the sand.

Rats multiply so quickly that in 18 months, two rats could have over 1 million descendants.
