8 Weird Animal Facts That May Surprise You

The animal kingdom is an undeniably diverse place, with an estimated 8.7 million species of animals on the planet. And we all love reading crazy, cool, weird, strange, funny facts. If you're looking for the most interesting list of animal facts, you're at the right place!

Here are 8 weird animal facts that may surprise You:- 

1. The wood frog of Alaska spends nearly seven months a year in a frozen state, Every year in September, the wood frogs of Alaska do a very strange thing: They freeze. They don't freeze completely solid, but they freeze mostly solid. Two-thirds of their body's water turns into ice. As the wood frog freezes, its heart continues to pump the protective glucose around its body, but the heart of the frog slows down and eventually stops.

2. Black flamingo exists, They are just super rare. A black flamingo is seen in a salt lake at the Akrotiri Environmental Center on the southern coast of Cyprus on 8 April 2015. The flamingo is thought to have a genetic condition that causes more pigment melanin to be generated, turning it dark rather than the usual pink color.

3.  Lemon and limes are toxic to dogs and cats. Your dog may become ill from eating any part of a lime and lemon tree — leaves, peels, or fruit — because it contains psoralens compounds and essential oils such as limonene and linalool that are dog and cat-toxic.

4. Koalas, small size marsupials, have fingerprints that are almost identical to human ones. Not even careful analysis under a microscope can easily distinguish loopy, whirling ridges on koala's fingers from our own. Koalas aren't the only non-humans with fingerprints, chimps and gorillas have them as well. 

5. There are many reasons to love the sea otters, other than how furry and inherently adorable they are. They can dive 100 feet deep. Sea otters sometimes hold their hands while they sleep so as not to float away from one another. Often a mother and a pup will hold on to each other while they rest so that they don't drift away from each other or the rest of their group.

6. Koalas spend most of their lives on eucalyptus trees. Koalas were alleged to never drink free water in the wilds or to drink only occasionally. Koalas sleep or rest for up to 22 hours each day because their bodies need a lot of energy to digest the gum leaves and when they sleep they save energy. There's also water in the gum leaves, so koalas rarely need to drink.

7. Scientists have found that dolphins call each other by "Name". Researchers from the university of st Andrews discovered that they use a unique whistle to identify each other. Each bottlenose dolphin has its own whistle, a high-pitched, warbly "eeee" that tells the other dolphins that a particular individual is present.  Dolphins are excellent in vocal mimics and capable of copying even the quirky computer-generated sounds.

8. The Platypus is a bizarre anthology. It has a duck-like leathery bill, flattened tail, and webbed feet. And if you look inside a platypus you will find another strange feature: its gullet directly connects to its intestines. In the middle, there is no sac that secretes potent acids and digestive enzymes — in other words, the platypus doesn't have a stomach.

Hope you liked it.
