Did You Know? 

  • Tigers not only have stripes on their fur, they also have them on their skin. No two tigers ever have the same stripes.
  • Fleas can jump up to 200 times their height. This is equivalent to a man jumping the Empire State Building in New York.
  • Elephants can smell water up to 3 miles away. They are also one of the three mammals that undergo menopause – the other two being humpback whales and human females.
  • Ostriches can run faster than horses, and the male ostriches can roar like lions.
  • Bats are the only mammals that can fly
  • There are one million ants for every human in the world. These resilient creatures also never sleep and do not have lungs.
  • Butterflies have two compound eyes consisting of thousands of lenses, yet they can only see the colours red, green and yellow.
  • Millions of trees are accidentally planted by squirrels that bury nuts and then forget where they hid them.
  • Hummingbirds are the only birds that can fly backwards and their wings can beat at up to 80 times per second.
