Reasons The Animal Kingdom Is More Ridiculous ....

Once a giant clam picks a spot to live on a reef, it does not move for the rest of its life

They also name objects

A beaver’s teeth never stop growing. It needs to chew on tree trunks and branches to keep them from getting too long

The blue whale’s tongue weighs as much as an adult elephant

All polar bears are left-handed, or rather, left pawed

Aside from nesting, common swift spend their entire lives in the air, living on insects they catch in flight

Galapagos tortoises sleep for 16 hours a day and can go a year without food or water.

Male emperor penguins will stand without eating for up to two months in the Antarctic elements while the female goes to feed

A cockroach can live several weeks with its head cut off – it dies from starvation!

Houseflies hum in the key of F

Anteaters can eat up to 35,000 ants a day.

The 2-inch-long golden poison dart frog has enough venom to kill 10 adult men

Fleas can jump distances 100 times their body length

Butterflies can taste with their feet

A snail can sleep for 3 years at a stretch

The venomous Portuguese-man-of-war is actually an animal made up of four separate organisms, known as a siphonophore

Polar bears have black skin under their white fur to better absorb the rays of the sun

Goldfish lose their color if kept in dim light. Similar to humans, they need sunlight to keep their pigment

Dolphins have names for one other

A hammerhead shark can be rendered completely immobile for 15 minutes by turning it over and tickling its tummy

A flamingo can only eat when it’s head is upside down.

Bats always turn left when exiting a cave

Squirrels can remember the hiding places of up to 10,000 nuts

The hummingbird is the only animal that can fly backwards

The oldest known animal in the world was Ming, the 405-year old clam, discovered in 2007
