A snail can sleep for three years

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

A crocodile cannot stick its tongue out

A snail can sleep for three years (my son must be part snail)

All polar bears are left-handed

An ostrich’s eye is bigger than its brain  (oh dear....)

Butterflies taste with their feet

Cats have over one hundred vocal sounds, dogs have only about ten

Cat urine glows under a black light  (it smells really bad too)

Donald Duck comics were banned in Finland because he doesn’t wear pants

Elephants are the only animals that can’t jump

If you keep a goldfish in a dark room it will eventually turn white

Humans and dolphins are the only species that have sex for pleasure (now, how do they know this?)

In the last 4000 years no new animals have been domesticated

More people are killed by donkeys annually than are killed by plane crashes

Some lions mate over fifty times a day

Starfish have no brains  (I guess they would envy ostrich's...that is, if they had brains....)

Ants always fall over on their right side when intoxicated

The average human eats eight spiders in their lifetime at night

The catfish has over 27,000 taste buds

You are more likely to be killed by a champagne cork than by a poisonous spider.
