Weird and awesome animal facts!

Penguins can jump 6 feet in the air.

Emus and kangaroos cannot walk backwards.

Beavers can hold their breathe for 45 minutes under water.

Elephants are the only animal that can't jump.

Polar bears are left handed.

A crocodile cannot stick its tongue out.

A cat has 32 muscles in each ear.

Reindeer eat moss because it contains a chemical that stops their body from freezing.

Snakes can see through their eyelids.

The praying mantis is the only insect that can turn its head 360 degrees.

Butterflies' taste sensors are in their feet. They taste their food by standing on it.

Katydids have ears in their front legs.

The strongest animal in the world is the rhinoceros beetle. It can lift 850 times its own weight.

Flamingos are pink because shrimp is one of their main sources of food.

The Chameleon can focus its eyes separately to watch two objects at once.

Flamingos eat with their heads upside down to strain the water out of their food.

The Basenji is the only dog which does not bark.
