- 2/24/15 Animal Facts
I am NOT going to do something as difficult as last post. Instead, listen to this: a lobsters blood is colorless but when exposed to oxygen it turns blue! And that armadillos have 4 babies at a time and are all the same sex! I can imagine it now...
Armadillo mother: I'm pregnant!! (121 days later) It's a girl! And a girl! And a--
Other grown armadillo children: Wait--lemme guess, a girl?
Armadillo mother: Hush! It's, it's... A girl! Wait one more... A girl!
Other grown armadillo children: *facepalm*
And that's not all of the facts I have... Did you know that when lightning strikes it can reach up to 54,000 degrees Fahrenheit? This seems cooler...
Mom: Kids, what would you like to eat today?
Kids: Fried egg!
Mom: Okay. *gets egg* I'll set it outside while I get the pan... *puts egg outside and leaves*
(lighning strikes egg) (Egg gets fried)
Kids: Yummy! Fried egg! *run outside to eat*
Mom: WAIT! STOP, IT'S NOT FRIED YET--*sees perfectly fried egg* Wait, what?
And that's not even the best of them, hear this: African Grey Parrots have vocabularies of over 200 words!!! That's no bird-brain!
Man: Aww, parrot, I'm going shopping, okay?
Parrot: Polly want a cracker. Polly want a cracker.
Man: Be a good little bird *leaves*
Parrot: WOOHOO! FREEDOM! *dials number on phone*
Parrot friends: *fly in through window* PARTY!!! *eat popcorn and watch a movie all day*
Man: *comes home* What the...?
Parrot friends: *leave*
Parrot: Polly want a cracker?
And then there is still the awesome fact that fire usually moves faster uphill than downhill, and that it's possible to lead a cow up stairs but not down. Nature never fails to amaze me! That's all for now, bye!
