2011 Duke's Fun Facts


Like humans, dogs and cats are either right or left handed.



Bald eagles can swim!  They use an overhead movement of their wings that is similar to the butterfly stroke.


Siberian Huskies can live and work in temperatures as low as -60 degrees Celsius or -75 degrees Fahrenheit.


You can power two fridges with the electricity produces by a single electric eel.

A gecko always has its eyes closed!  You won't notice though, as its eyelids are clear. They help protect the gecko’s eyes while allowing it to see.

A zebra's camouflage is effective because lions are colourblind. If a zebra stands completely still, a lion will see it as vertical blades of grass.


Cats have better memories than dogs. Tests have concluded that a dog’s memory lasts no more than 5 minutes; cats can last as long as 16 hours



The largest rabbit litter on record contained 24 babies. The average number of rabbits in a litter is about five!


Skunks can accurately spray their smelly scent as far as 3 metres or 10 feet.

An elephant's tummy makes so much noise when it's digesting food, that if there's any danger of a predator hearing it, it can immediately stop digesting. Try that yourself!


When two male dogs approach each other the dog that wags its tail the slowest is the dominant one.


The venom of the king cobra is so deadly that one gram of it can kill 150 people. Just to handle the substance with bare skin can put a person in a coma.

Ferrets can sleep so deeply that they cannot be woken, even when picked up and jostled.
