I’ve been an animal lover all of my life. I’ve had all sorts of pets from ferrets, snakes, dogs, cats, and the list goes on and on. Today I thought I’d share with you some odd and trivia type facts on the animal kingdom. With this started . . .

  • A group of apes is called a shrewdness.
  • A group of alligators is called a congregation.
  • The blue whale has the largest penis of any organism on earth (8-10 ft).
  • The female barkfly has a penis, which is used to extract sperm from the male barkfly’s vagina.
  • A group of cockroaches is called an intrusion.
  • Boars can ejaculate continuously for up to 7 min.
  • A severed cockroach head can survive for hours.
  • The decapitated cockroach can live for weeks before it starves to death.
  • Fleas can survive for up to 100 days without a meal (without sucking your blood).
  • Cats are more popular pets and dogs.
  • The canine nose has more than four times as many scent receptors as the average cat nose (and more than 14 times as many as the human nose).
  • A dog on average has 42 teeth, compared to 30 teeth for domestic cats.
  • Cats can be left-handed.
  • Each year nearly 4,000,000 cats are eaten in China as a delicacy.
  • Electric eels generate enough electric charge to kill a horse or a human.

I think that’s enough for today and I’m sure you learned more than you ever cared about knowing of the weird and wonderful world of animals.
