Did You Know?

When the queen of a clownfish school dies, a male clownfish changes its gender to become female and takes her place.

The little Alaskan Wood Frog is capable of reviving itself back to normal life after staying completely frozen for months, during which its heart, brain and other organs stop functioning.

There are more species of fish in Amazon river than in the entire Atlantic Ocean (Over 2,000).

A worm is both male and female at the same time (a hermaphrodite.)

The world's smallest flowering plant is the Wolffia, whose one full bouquet of flowers can fit on the head of a push-pin.

Rats can swim for half a mile (0.8 km) without rest, and can tread water for three straight days.

While we're awake, our brain generates enough power to illuminate a light bulb of 25 watts.

The world's smallest rodent is Pygmy Jerboa - measuring only a couple of inches in length - and can run as fast as a horse.

The world's smallest frog - The Little Grass Frog - is no bigger than a house fly.

Armadillos spend about 80% of their lives asleep.

An Octopus has three hearts.

The Methuselah tree in California, USA, is the oldest living organism (4,800 years old) known today.

Honeybees have remained unchanged in form or structure for 20 million years.

There are more insects in a single square mile of fertile soil than there are people on the entire earth.

The longest recorded distance flown by any chicken is 301.5 feet (about 92 meters) in 13 seconds.

Elephants can hear through their feet.

The giraffe is one of the quietest animals: it has no vocal chords to make any noise.

A goldfish (like most marine fish) can survive in a tank full of human blood.

Only female mosquitoes bite people.

95% of all the animal species on the earth are insects.

A lobster has a sense of smell about 1000 times keener than a human.

If a person or an animal is born colorblind, they instantly have excellent night vision.

A teaspoonful of soil may contain 100 million bacteria.

Eighty-five percent of all life on Earth is Plankton.

Your blood vessels, if laid end to end, would encircle the globe twice over.

Elephants have been known to remain standing after they die.

A mosquito has 47 teeth.

Crocodiles swallow stones to help them dive deeper.

The human body has enough fat to produce 7 bars of soap.

15 million blood cells are produced and destroyed in the human body every second.

There are more beetles than any other kind of creature in the world.

When you get goosebumps and your hair stands, the hair helps to trap air, making you feel warmer by keeping in your body heat.

Re: Did You Know?

these sort of lists often tend to be riddled with incorrect bits of information, always hard to tell which are the correct ones and which ones arent

they do how ever offer an interesting read tho :)

Re: Did You Know?

Some of these creatures hold the key to longevity.

Not really sure if that's a good thing though.
