Animal Trivia

I watched Animal Planet yesterday and I found out lots of animal trivia. I learned that elephant's poop can be turned into paper. Duck's quack doesn't echo. It takes 40 minutes to hard boil ostrich's egg. cat's urine glows under a black light. Sharks are immune to all diseases.

Those are just some of the trivia I learned. So i came up to an idea of researching more animal trivia. Here are some trivia for all of us:

A 1,200-pound horse eats about seven times it's own weight each year.

A bird requires more food in proportion to its size than a baby or a cat.

A capon is a castrated rooster.

A chameleon can move its eyes in two directions at the same time.

A chameleon's tongue is twice the length of its body.

A chimpanzee can learn to recognize itself in a mirror, but monkeys can't.

A Cornish game hen is really a young chicken, usually 5 to 6 weeks of age, that weighs no more than 2 pounds.

A cow gives nearly 200,000 glasses of milk in her lifetime.

An adult lion's roar can be heard up to five miles away, and warns off intruders or reunites scattered members of the pride.

An albatross can sleep while it flies. It apparently dozes while cruising at 25 mph.

An electric eel can produce a shock of up to 650 volts.

An iguana can stay under water for 28 minutes.

An ostrich's eye is bigger than its brain.

Dolphins sleep at night just below the surface of the water. They frequently rise to the surface for air.
