  • A panda's diet is 99% bamboo
  • Elephants are the only animal that can not jump
  • A rhinoceros' horn is made of keratin, the same protein our nails and hair are made from
  • During World War II, Americans tried to train bats to drop bombs
  • Pandas in China were given Viagra to help them mate
  • It takes 3000 cows to supply the NFL with enough leather for a year's supply of footballs
  • Most elephants weigh less than the tongue of the blue whale
  • Americans spend more money on dog food each year, than they do on baby food
  • Giraffes can clean their ears with their tongue, which is half a metre long
