Our world is amazing and wonderful, and fully of truly interesting, amazingly weird living things.

Record them in any way you would like to.


Did you know that butterflies taste with their back feet?

Did you know that painted turtles survive Winter by breathing through their bottoms?

Did you know that snails can sleep for three years?

Did you know that the ghost crab growls using teeth in its stomach?
