Top Ten Things I Bet We Did Not Know About Animals

By Jan Fullbright

# 10. A female ferret will die if she goes into heat and cannot find a mate, that is all I am saying about that.

# 9. The flamingo can only eat when it’s head is upside down, I have seen kids try this.

# 8. Bet you didn’t know that a rat can last longer than a camel without water and they don’t even have humps.

# 7. Mosquitos are attracted to the color blue twice as much any other color, so tell me why they love me so much, I have green eyes !

# 6. A woodpecker can peck 20 times per second. That is some more fast pecking for one insect.

# 5. The octopus’¬†testicles are located in its head, this would explain why they will eat their own arms if they get hungry enough.

# 4. A donkey will sink in quicksand but a mule won’t, guess this tells us that being stubborn is really a good thing.

# 3. Dolphins can swim and sleep at the same time. I know people who can work and sleep at the same time.

# 2. The only mammals to undergo menopause are elephants and humpback whales, You really would not want to be around them at this time. Can you imagine an elephant having a hot flash ?

# 1. Some animals get drunk like the moose in Sweden in the fall of the year. They eat the rotten apples that fall from the trees and get drunk from them and cause havoc.
