Well, here's ONE fact, anyway......some animals, including koalas and kangaroos, have two and three vag!nas, respectively. Is that fun? Hmmm, I don't know.

Wild cats or big cats (ex. Lion, tiger panther...): big cats can jump 30 feet high or higher.
Dogs: dogs are colorblind.
People: a persons mouth is dirtier than a chickens butt. Also, our spit is urine.

When Barn Owl eggs hatch, they don't hatch all at once like most birds. They hatch in the order they were laid, and the youngest one in the nest could be 2 weeks younger than the oldest one.

A Boa Constrictor takes about 4-6 days to digest its food and then may not eat again for a week or several months, due to slow metabolism.

Before putting the first man into orbit the US was simulating weightlessness by doing high speed dives in fighters then pulling out of them. The bottom section felt weightless.

Then some genius got the idea of putting a cat in to see what would happen.

The pilot held the cat out at arm's length as they hit zero gravity, then let go. The cat panicked. Dived straight for his lap and hung on by digging in its claws.

Ouch!

Hi Dodgy! Was hoping you would jump in here with a good funny Dodgy story! Lol!!:-).

There are so many animal stories but that one always stuck with me. Working on the idea that a cat always lands on its feet they wanted to see what would happen. P-a-i-n-f-u-l ! Even with a camera on the cat they weren't sure how he got to the lap in weightless flight.

Its a Cat! Needs no explanation lol..
It did what Cats are presumed to do.. Landed on its feet! Ha,ha-xxxx!! Ouch, big-time! Ha,ha-xxxxxx! Sorry, just keep seeing it in my mind and cant stop laughing.:-).

Female dogs hike their legs to pee on a tree or post just the same as a male, if they are the Alpha. And if you don't believe me, I can take a video of mine doing it.

One of my babies who has since past on did just that! She was the sweetest most gentle shepherd-lab mix, but out in a walk, she marked everything!!!!

I've heard, sometimes females will actually mount other dogs too, as a sign of dominance. (Some mistake this for ga.y behavior.)
Report as
Shaylen: Mounting has nothing to do with s e x when a dog is establishing dominance. Females often will do so.

I know: that's exactly what I'm saying!
