Fun Facts About Animals

If you know me personally you would probably know that I love knowing about useless facts. I love playing 30 seconds and quiz games. However this affinity I have for general useless fact is a bit of fun problem. Just few weeks ago I was all excited on Facebook because I learned that South African currency, The Rand, is named after the same ridge that University of Witwatersrand is named after. You would have thought I was 12 the way I was chuffed about it . Anyway here are some interesting facts I have learned about animals... (with a bit of a fun twist of course)

So did you know...
  • The human heart (we are mammals afterall) creates enough pressure when it pumps out to the body to squirt blood 30 feet.
OMG!
  • A pig’s orgasm lasts 30 minutes.
In my next life, I want to be a pig.


  • A cockroach will live nine days without its head before it starves to death. 
Creeepy ... but I’m still not over the pig.


  • Banging your head against a wall uses 150 calories an hour.
Do not try this at home. Unless you watching Generations.


  • The flea can jump 350 times its body length. That’s like a human jumping the length of a football field.
 *blank stare*  Yeah whatever. Lucky pig. 30 minutes they say? Can you imagine?!


  • The catfish has over 27,000 taste buds.
Seriously what could possibly be so tasty on the bottom of a pond?


  • Some lions mate over 50 times a day.
I still want to be a pig in my next life…quality over quantity baba !!


  • Butterflies taste with their feet.
Yah like that's really something I always wanted to know. *sigh*

  • The strongest muscle in the body is the tongue.
Hmmm … has somebody told Metro FM's The Naked Dj and Vuyile Mdladla this? *hides*


  • Right-handed people live, on average, nine years longer than left-handed people.
If you’re ambidextrous do you split the difference?

Note: Ambidextrous means being adept in both hands, that's if you've been too busy toyi toying with Juju instead of studying. 


  • Elephants are the only animals that cannot jump.
OK, so that would be a good thing, right? Who would want something that fat to jump anyway.


  • A cat’s urine glows under a black light.
I wonder who was paid to figure that out?


  • An ostrich’s eye is bigger than its brain.
I know some people like that. ((cough)) Dubula ibu....


  • Starfish have no brains.
I know some people like that too. ((googles "protection of information" Secrecy Bill))


  • Polar bears are left-handed.
If they switch ton their right hand, they’ll live a lot longer.


  • Humans and dolphins are the only species that have sex for pleasure.
Hao Madoda ... What about that pig?



These above mentioned statement have actually been scientifically proven. Ladies think twice before calling your man a pig when you angry, he may just be think you are complimenting him.
