Animals

None of these facts have been verified so far.

A cheetah can accelerate from 0-100 km/h (about 62 mph) in under 3 seconds. A Porsche 911 Turbo needs 4.2 seconds.

Flies canít escape street lamps because they normally use the sun or the moon to guide their flight by flying at a fixed angle to the light source (which hardly changes because of the sunís and the moonís great distance to the earth). When you see them flying around street lamps in circles they actually think they are flying in a straight line.

Butterflies taste with their feet.

A duckís quack doesnít echo, and no one knows why. - MYTH! - Every sound is echoed in the right environment but a duckís quack dies away very slowly so itís very hard to hear when the original sound ends and the echo begins.

A hummingbird weighs less than a penny.

An eagleís nest can weigh as much as two tons.

Baby robins eat 14 feet of earthworms per day.

Owls are the only birds who can see the colour blue.

The fastest running bird is the ostrich (97.5 km/h)

Between 1902 and 1907 the same Tiger killed 434 people in India.

The blue whale is the loudest animal on earth. Its whistle can reach up to 188 decibels.
