25% of all life on earth, including plants, is beetles.

This disturbs me.

Lightning can make trees explode, if they are particularly dying or rotting, since trees contain some water. When lightning strikes the tree, the water is raised to boiling temperatures, which turns to steam and causes a pressure spike that causes the tree to explode.

Some species of baboons keep dogs as pets.

I don't know if this is one of those species...I just grabbed a baboon picture. And seriously? How bizarre!

Anglerfish mate by fusing themselves with the opposite sex. Anglerfish live at the bottom of the ocean, so finding one another to reproduce is difficult. The larger females of the species will fuse with the tiny male anglerfish to reproduce. They can mate this way with up to six males at once to ensure there will be plenty of chances for babies.

That's so weird!

It's estimated that for every one human on the planet there are 1,600,000 million ants. Of course, this is only an estimate middle ground level between experts.
