Yes they're ultimately pointless but they're still oddly addicting. I collected a lot, though most of my animal facts are misconceptions. w/e (i got them off www.popularerrors.com/animals.shtml ) POST YOUR OWN FACTS!!! and try not to repeat previously mentioned ones or it gets boring. Some I found particularily interesting from already mentioned site:

Fish can cough.

You can hypnotize a chicken. This can be done by putting its head on the ground and drawing a straight line in the dirt from its beak and directly away from it. The chicken will stay in this position anywhere from 15 seconds to 30 minutes.

On average, dogs have better vision than humans, they are just colour blind.

All animals can dream, except for the spiny anteater.

Snails have teeth, and can have as many as 25000.

A koala's fingerprints are almost identical to human ones- sometimes they are even confused.

Rats can last longer without water than camels.

Deer don't eat hay.

Mosquitoes have teeth- 47 of them.

Emus and Kangaroos cannot walk backwards- they are on the Australian seal because of this.

An iguana, for some reason, can commit suicide.

If anyone is interested. I have started a website called Wild Facts. Basically, I will provide a new and interesting animal fact every week day. I am hoping that through education, people will begin to understand the complexities of animals.

Today's fact will be on the Walruses ability to sleep while floating. I personally think other forum members will enjoy some of the material I have added on elephants. It is incredible how intelligent elephants are and the range and depth of the emotions they can show.

Check it out at www.wild-facts.com

Thanks!

You have asked to explain about animal facts. I know many animal facts such as cat facts, dog facts, kangaroo facts (http://www.didyouknow-facts.com/animal-facts/10-kangaroo-facts.html), snake facts, cow facts and other animal facts. Which type of animal facts you want to know?

The eyesight of dogs are better than that of human beings. No wonder most of the dogs are trained to become guard dogs and they are a great companion too! That is a bonus already :D
