Fun Facts That Will Amaze You

I’m so glad you are enjoying Fun Facts. I learn something new each week, even if it’s weird. I love hearing your comments! 

Cows don’t actually have four stomachs; they have one stomach with four compartments. (fda.gov)

 The platypus doesn’t have a stomach at all: Their esophagus goes straight to their intestines. (nationalgeographic.com)

This is one animal myth that’s true: Eating parts of a pufferfish can kill you because, in a defense mechanism to ward off predators, it contains a deadly chemical called tetrodotoxin. There’s enough in one pufferfish to kill 30 people—and there’s no antidote. Still, pufferfish, called fugu, is a highly-prized delicacy in Japan, but can only be prepared by well-trained chefs.

Polar bears have black skin. And actually, their fur isn’t white—it’s see-through, so it appears white as it reflects light.

Tigers’ skin is actually striped, just like their fur. Also, no two fur patterns are alike.

Enjoy!
