5 Weird and Wonderful Animal Facts
To celebrate the wonder that are animals on international animal day, get a load of these 5 weird and wonderful facts about animals that will either make you gush or squirm. The animal kingdom is a mysterious place alright… (warning: put down the sandwich while reading)
Fact no. 1: Marmoset monkeys are extremely polite creatures. They actually take turns to speak and wait at least five seconds before they’ll respond to each other. How lovely is that? They say that human communication is way more similar to these smaller monkeys than that of big apes and gorillas. Well I never.
Fact no. 2: Many animals eat their own poo. Yes, as gross as it sounds, there is a good reason why animals eat their own faeces. As plants aren’t so easy to digest, their poop can come out with some bits that haven’t been broken down properly so by eating it up again, they’re making sure they get all those tasty nutrients the second time round. And… continue eating.
Fact no. 3: Wolves can go for an entire week without eating. Maybe that has something to do with the fact that they can eat as much as 20 pounds of meat at each sitting. That would do it. So, I guess the little and often rule goes out the window for this lot.
Fact no 4: The fingerprints of a koala are so similar to those of humans that they’ve occasionally been known to cause confusion at crime scenes down under. Funny though, those cuddly creatures look like butter wouldn’t melt.
Fact no. 5: Around 50 percent of all orangutans have fractured bones. And this isn’t because they get into monkey fights either, it’s because of all the falling out of trees. That’s half of all orangutans everywhere that are fractured. Poor babies.
