Although we write most often about cats and dogs, we appreciate all members of the animal kingdom. ┬áBeing a fan of trivia, I found these odd animal facts I thought I’d share. ┬áCheck these out:

  • Man-eating sharks prefer to eat men. 13 males are bitten for every one female
  • Each year, cows kill more people than sharks. About 10 humans are killed by sharks every year but nearly 100 people die each year from being stepped on by cows.
  • If the Sun Bear is grabbed or bitten around its head, it can turn round inside the wrinkly skin on its head and bite the predator.
  • Woodpeckers don’t get headaches from all that pecking. Their skulls have air pockets to cushion the brain.
  • The coyote’s scientific name (Canis Latrans) means ‘barking dog’.
  • If you lift a Kangaroo’s tail off the ground it can’t hop.
  • Elephants are the only animal that can’t jump.
  • Butterflies taste sensors are in their feet. They taste their food by standing on it.
  • Flamingos eat with their heads upside down to strain the water out of their food.
  • Reindeer eat moss because it contains a chemical that stops their body from freezing.
