My Expedition for Useless Information: Part 2

Delving into the useless facts of animals

As my adventure continues so does my thirst for pointless knowledge! This time we enter the animal kingdom:

  • Butterflies clean themselves in mud puddles
  • The chihuahua in the Taco Bell commercials is named Gidget
  • One blue whale weighs the same as 40 rhinos
  • The Sea Horse swims at a pace of .01 mph
  • A Weddell Seal can travel underwater for seven miles without surfacing for air
  • By the time it’s a year old, the average mockingbird already knows 25 to 30 songs
  • The world’s smallest winged insect is the Tanzanian Parasitic Wasp which is smaller than the eye of a housefly
  • Only animal to have bird, reptile, and mammal genomes in its genetic code: the platypus
  • A camel drinks water at a rate of 50 cups per minute
  • A salamander can launch its tongue with a force 450 times that of a Corvette going from 0-60 mph

Check back next time as we explore the useless facts of famous people!
