I really like collecting animal facts, and I've been collecting them for years now. Would you share some interesting/cool animal facts with me to expand my collection?

Here's one of my favorites to tell people:
About the blue whale:
Did you know its tongue weighs as much as an elephant?
And did you know its blood vessels are so large than an adult male human could swim through them with room to spare?

Cool, huh? (Well, fact #2 is gross at the same time lol)

Not sure if I'm understanding the question, but no, animals don't have hands, they have paws. And yes, they have right and left paws.

What a fun topic.

Dogs can sense when some one is a bad person. Even if they put on an act of being friendly.

Great link Bob.
When I was a child I remember my grandmother telling me to pay attention to my dog when meeting some one new. My dogs have always liked people, so if on the rare occasion the dog showed dislike of a new person I knew the dog knew things that I did not, and reacted accordingly.
This worked with every dog I have ever owned in my 77 years.

Ok, here's one:

Did you know that Alligators can outlive a lot of people, living up to 100 years old?

And another one:
You would find deer antlers more often in the forest, but porcupines eat them, so they're less common.

Virginia possums have 50 teeth according to Brittanica.com
But that would be 25 on top and 25 on bottom? which sounds weird, shouldn't it be bilaterally symmetrical? like 12 per quadrant making 48 teeth.
I would be the annoying student in bio saying "Hold everything, why aren't they all paired up? Which are not?"
i'm pretty OK today, how are you? ;^)

I love ocean animal facts and videos. Find those pufferfish that make circles in sand awesome. I believe its dophins that sleep with one eye open.
