DealDash Presents Fun Animal Facts
From Aardvark to Zebra animals are a very important part of our world.
There are so many different types, sizes, and shapes of animals on our green Earth. Here are some fun and interesting animal facts for you to enjoy. Memorize some, and quiz your friends!
Dolphins may speak in squeals and squeaks rather than human words, but they actually have names for each other. The Cetacean Hearing and Telemetry (CHAT) is a dolphin-English translator that can be used to convert the “dolphin talk” into English.
Cows are extremely sensitive beings. Not only do they have best friends, they also produce more milk when listening to soothing music. The average cow has her first baby calf when she is about 2 years old. Cows (naturally) live for approximately 15 years.
Squirrels are very useful little creatures. They are great for the environment by “accidentally” plant thousands of trees per year by scattering acorns. In addition to being conservation-friendly, they will also adopt other squirrel babies that have been abandoned.
Most people aren’t very fond of rats, but they are actually said to be as intelligent as a dog. They can learn their name and how to do tricks. Rats are also ticklish, which is cute to think about, until you read the next rat fact. They are extremely fertile, and in just 18 months, 2 rats could have created over 1 million relatives. Now that’s a lot of rats!
Now on to my favorite animal, the octopus! An octopus has a lot of love to give – not only do they have 8 arms for hugging, they also have 3 hearts. If they happen to lose one of those 8 arms, no problem! Octopus’ are able to regenerate an arm if it gets bitten off. They are also able to “drop” an arm to escape a predator, similar to how a lizard can drop it’s tail when it’s in danger. Sadly, an octopus usually only lives for approximately 6 – 18 months. Males only live a few months after mating, and females die of starvation shortly after their protected eggs hatch. How sad.
