Random Thursday


Welcome to another amusing round of animal factoids from True Facts That Sound Like Bull$#*t by Shane Carley. You have to wonder how or where he did his research. I mean, we're only 1/3 of the way through the animal/nature chapter and there's still a long ways to go through the book itself! And it's all totally random tidbits...it's astounding!

When creating their homes, puffins set aside a space to be the designated bathroom.

That's weird and amazing!
There is a species of jellyfish that is basically immortal! The immortal jellyfish can be found in the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of Japan. The jellyfish can regenerate its cells indefinitely, but sadly get eaten by predators more often than not.

An immortal jellyfish. Wow!

In 2008, King Harold V of Norway knighted
Sir Nils Olav, a penguin from Scotland's Edinburgh Zoo that was adopted by a Norwegian military unit.

That's kind of funny, but I love it all the same! Note this is not that penguin, I just googled "penguin." Lol.

Crows have the ability to recognize people, much like dogs do. Studies have shown they can recognize human faces and pick them out of a crowd, even.

That's too cool!
