  • MARK SPENCER

    My favourite fact is that when a starfish loses his arm another one grows back

  • Tawny

    My favorite animal fact is that a lot if pig organs can be harvested and used for human transplants. There is a guy locally that has a pig stomach.. Isn’t that amazing?

  • Paul Clément

    I find it fascinating that elephants have such a fantastic memory.

  • Sherri

    my favorite animal fact is that lobsters find one mate and they mate for life!!

  • Carol Miller

    My favorite animal fact is one I learned from my 10 year old granddaughter, Molly. She did a report on dolphins and I discovered , in helping her, that the navy has trained dolphins since World War II. The dolphins are trained to seek out mines and drop a buoy there so it will identify where the mine is. This is under the Navy Mammal Protection Program and it is based in San Diego, California. The Navy also used the dolphins during the two Gulf Wars. I thought that was almost unbelievable when I read it. I knew dolphins were smart but how smart is that?

  • ramadevi

    As much I know all the animals feel same like humans when they get the babies. It is wonderful fact of nature and God’s creation. I saw cows, dogs, cats, horses, monkeys, kangaroo, elephant etc. Save our planet and spread the love.

  • Brian Vaughn

    Ostriches, despite being so big, run faster than most animals like horses

  • David John Hearst

    Mine is a sensitive observation. Dogs seem to sense impending death within their neighboring surroundings. Ours was half wolf and would howl at night and daytime in a certain direction and sure enough within a few days a death would occur. Sad but true.

  • dolfanatl

    My favorite animal fact is that pigeons produce milk to feed their young.

  • rose morgan

    Koalas cant legally be kept as pets.

  • Surveys Profit

    Pandas were canivores long time ago before becoming vegetarian.

  • justinkeene

    My favorite was happen to be about Lobsters, A female lobster can only mate just after she has molted. interesting. Also sometimes Lobsters are sometimes called bugs. you wouldn’t think they would be. though

  • joe sarnak

    My favorite animals are leopards. They are mostly solitary animals until the female enters estrus (heat). Then for the next 4-7 days the male and female will remain together mating every 15-30 minutes up to 100 times. After that both cats go their separate ways and won’t acknowledge each other until the next cycle.

  • Diane Krumenaker Eugenio

    I used to have a snake. As a snake grows, it sheds its skin. My snake used to leave a whole, intact dried up skin in the tank each time it shed. I remember saving one and hanging it up just because it was so fascinating to me.

  • Ray Ayala

    Some lizards can detach their tails if caught by predators. Later, a new tail grows in its place. Scientists are studying the biology behind this to further the field of medicine.

  • Sue W.

    In Alaska, it is illegal to whisper in someone’s ear when they are moose hunting!! They take their moose hunting seriously!!!

  • David Nagel

    Dolphins sleep with one side of their brain at a time – otherwise, they would drown!!

  • Diane Lane

    That sugar gliders have the ability to glide and land on the human hand.

  • Gary Rickett

    It’s cool that starfish can regrow their limbs if cut off.

  • Denise N.

    I’m a DC Comic fangirl and the one animal fact that I treasure is that a group of Owls is called a Parliment- which means that when Bruce went up against the Court of Owls he was actually fighting Parlument:)

  • Serena

    My favorite animal fact is that a Blue whales tongue, is as big as a Elephant!

  • Damara Anderson

    My favorite animal fact is that the seahorses carries the babies n that the male penguin is the one who keeps the eggs warm

  • Cheyenne Spina

    The fact that cats stick up their butts at you as a sign of complete trust, lol

    • Jason Provo

      Lol. ok. I wont take it personally anymore.

  • Karen B.

    I find it interesting that if a worm’s body gets cut in half, it can grow another head and “keep on truckin”. Also, the fact that birds eat twice their body weight! So the old saying, “he/she eats like a bird” is actually an insult!

    • Kat Crawford

      Sorry, Sweetie… the tail end of a worm that’s cut in half actually dies. I literally found that out a week ago.

  • edeliz

    A while back I learned that dragonflies and damselflies form a heart with their tails when they mate.

  • Leslie Anne Soloman

    That the beaver wash their food before eating it.

  • Jason Provo

    In a pre-nursing biochemistry course, I learned that all mammals generate their own Vitamin C withing their molecular chromosomal make-up…..except for one. Humans. We are the only mammal that requires an intake of Viamin C to maintain its balance within our bodies. All other mammals have a chemical make-up that produces it automatically.

  • Timothy Mccollum

    I learned most dogs don’t eat where they go to the bathroom.

  • Maria Brown

    I thought it was really cool when i found out that Elephants and Humpback Whales actually go through menopause. I wonder if they have mood swings and go through hot flashes too. LOL

  • April

    My favorite animal fact is that the male seahorse is the one that carries the eggs and gives birth to the baby seahorses!

  • Judy Burba McGarvey

    The blue-tailed skink releases their tail as a defense mechanism and then regrows it. BTW, if a cat gets the tail and swallows it, it can kill them. My cat was sick for a month and she was left with neurological problems.

  • Stacie Snow

    Love that swans,wolves and beavers all mate for life

  • Zhulin Gao

    One animal fact that I love most and can also personally connect with is the “Fish only have 7 second memory.”

  • Nicole D. C

    Gorillas get colds and other illnesses like humans.

  • MyKinKStar

    Many white animals with blue eyes are deaf. Sometimes just one white ear and/or blue eye is enough, but not all of them are like that. My Sugar is an all white cat with blues eyes, hears every little thing! Many redhead or orange cats are boys, just like many calicos are female, but again, not all. No, redhead girls or calico boys are not more valuable, just rare!

  • TedtheRabbi

    The ratio of insect species to all other species in the animal kingdom is ten to one. I don’t know the actual numbers, but let’s say there are one million different kinds, or species, of animals — including humans, cats, dogs, birds, fish, worms, lions, tigers, and bears ..oh my! — then, there would be ten million different species of insects. Only a small fraction of insect species have been named and classified. So, if you are looking for a career — think entomologist!

  • Elena Rivera

    I saw somewhere that polar bears actually have black skin!

  • Kat Crawford

    My favorite animal fact is that hippos sweat red.

  • Abbey Harford

    Cats have 52 muscles in each ear

  • Veronica

    cardinal Nesting
    If you are interested in observing cardinals, they are often found near bird feeders, so you may want to install one in your yard. Since cardinals do not stay in the same nest twice, and you desire the cardinals to remain, you may wish to provide some shelter and nest building materials.

  • Sowmya

    The fact that male puppies when playing with female puppies, will often let them win, even if they are physically strong. How cute!!

  • Helen Kirschman

    beavers wash their food before eating it

  • Regina McNeese

    Female kangaroos have three vaginas.

  • Colleen Goodbrand

    I was told by one riding instructor that a horse is much like an antenna when it comes to the rider’s emotions. I had many experiences over my riding “career” to learn how true that was but one night in particular comes to mind. One December night, I was part of a group lesson in an arena. There were 5 mounted riders and our instructor was walking. There was a jump set up in the middle of the arena and a barrel ( the kind used in barrel racing) set up in each corner. My horse and I were standing still next to the instructor and the others were trotting around the inside perimeter of the arena.Then the lights went out. There were no back up lights. It was pitch black in there. My instructor called out for everyone to stop their horses and to answer back when they had done so. Raven, my mare, started to hop and do little nervous bucks. I was terrified as I knew just how close we were to my instructor and how in danger she and I were with a frightened horse. My first thought was to get off the horse but I realized just as quickly that it was my job to get control of Raven. A loose, scared horse could have caused a disaster. I took a deep breathe and willed my own fear away. The response from Raven was amazing. I literally , very literally, felt my own calm move from me to Raven. She quieted right down and stood stock still. She sighed and lowered her head. A horse that is frightened does not lower it’s head. Raven stayed quiet with me while the others exited the arena with only the light of someone’s cell phone by the exit door to the stalls. Horse people will understand what a profound experience it can be to have such a bonding moment with a horse.

  • Jodi Laporte

    Owls regurgitate pellets of parts that can’t be digested, such as the exoskeletons of insects, indigestible plant matter, bones, fur, feathers, bills, claws, and teeth. They swallow their food whole and their bodies get rid of any parts that are indigestible. Fascinating!

  • Carol Miller

    Elizabeth or Diane, There are 2 posts for winners of question 1958 but no post winners for 1959. Just thought I would mention it.

  • Malia D.

    My all-time favorite animal fact has always been how the female praying​ mantis annihilates her male partner while mating. Literally bites his head off as a thank you. Learned that when I was probably 10 & have never thought there was anything cooler about an insect! I’m not twisted I promise…:)

  • Bats are the only mammals that can actually fly. I learned that when I was like 6 and never forgot it haha

  • G Malloway

    I think it’s really cool (and a little weird) how Clownfish are known to change sex, including reproductive functions.

  • Donald Beasley

    The capubarra is the world’s largest rodent.

  • Marce McHone

    Penguins give a rock to their mate, they mate for life.

    The heart of a shrimp is located in his head. I thought that was pretty unusual.

  • Lisa

    Approximately 8% of Dalmatians are born completely deaf and about 25% are born with hearing in one ear only. All puppies are born with their ears closed.

  • Michaele Dalin Goodson

    My favorite animal fact is that mockingbird retain 13 different songs at any given time

  • MARIE FINLAY RYAN

    IT’S INTERESTING TO KNOW THAT SOME CATS HAVE 6 TOES.

  • Cherie Wellman

    the murray cod is a hermaphrodite

  • The Siamese cat can continue having a conversation with you as long as you want.

  • Donna Lawless

    I love that koalas don’t have to drink water they get all their liquid from the gum leaves they eat .

  • melaniex5

    Female spiders eat the males. I wonder why that is? I mean they mate to keep the species alive but don’t you need the male and female to do so. Mind boggling.

  • Pedro

    I discovered last week that fish do not have ears and to notice movements, they have a line that extends along both sides of the fish’s body and has a sensorial function. In addition, I discovered that they urinate!!! 🙂 🙂

  • Adrienne White

    I checked out something unusual about oysters! Not only are they are famous for pearls, they have a three chambered heart, colourless blood, and a pair of kidneys. Also, the female oyster lays in excess of a million eggs over the spawning season.

  • Theresa Holly

    I like most animals but especially cute and cuddly puppies!!

  • Denis Tremblay

    The cats are my favorites animals. And when you have one of them. you learn that YOU stay in IT’s house and you are their slave!

    • Monique Bessette

      Same to me, my favorite animals are the cats. I love them because they are like me, free, independance, but very sensitive.

  • Muhammed Al-Amin Shittu

    Elephant tusk is actually a bone… Who knew

    • MyKinKStar

      Tusks are actually ivory . . . Which so you know means it’s dead matter, like hair and nails. Bone on the other hand has pores from blood vessels and can’t be used to make carvings like ivory and why elephants are poached.

  • Jennifer H

    sloths poop on the bottom of trees making them targets for predators.

  • That Dolphins, Apes, Elephants, and all animals are intelligent. They communicate with humanity.
