Cool Animal Facts

Animals are amazing and if you spend your free time watching National Geographic or the discovery channel you know it’s true. So if you are fascinated about them here are some interesting and funny facts I found for you.

A snail can sleep for three years. This is probably why they are one of the slowest animals in the world because when you spend most of your time sleeping , everything and everyone will pass you by. But the real reason they can sleep for that long is because they need moisture, it’s why they are easily found in damp areas, so when the weather doesn’t cooperate they can sleep up to three years.

A shrimp’s heart is in its head. If it were the human it would be the most confused person because you know how they say keep your head and heart separate ? It would be hard to manage that when they both reside in the same place.

Elephants are the only animals that can’t jump. Does this come as a surprise to anyone because I’m not in the least surprised. The muscles of their feet and their ankles are not as flexible as other animals. Also they are heavyset so it’s not rocket science why they cannot jump.

Moths experience love at first scent.When a male moth catches a whiff of a female moth, he’ll travel miles to find her-led by her scent. They don’t need to know what the she sounds or looks like, they just follow her scent.Why don’t we call people in love love moths instead of lovebirds? Cos this is quite interesting and romantic.

Rats Laugh I’m not particularly thrilled about this because I dislike rats and now knowing that they laugh after all the havoc they cause doesn’t sit well with me. Scientists don’t think they have a sense of humor, but when tickled they make a laugh like sound. Will someone try tickling one and tell us the results in the comments. Please ?

Cows Produce More Milk when listening to slow music. Yes slow jams help cows get in the moo-d. Got it? Moo-d! Researchers at the university of Leicester’s school of psychology found that that cows produced 1.54 more pints per day when they were played slow music. They’re just like me for real, needing slow music to feel relaxed and vulnerable.

Sperm whales in the Carribean have an accent Just like humans have different accents and speech patterns, whales do too. Researchers found evidence that whales in the carribean have a different accent in other oceans. Imagine a carribean whale meets a whale from another ocean and it starts to speak patois in whale language .

A housefly buzzes in an F keyI believe I speak for everybody when I say we don’t care , we don’t want to hear that annoying sound no matter how perfect the pitch is. It’s kind of like that annoying person who thinks they can sing and just won’t stop, when in fact they are making your ears bleed.
