Did you know - 
  • Scorpionfish have the most powerful venom of all fish.
  •  In 2019 it was discovered Flying Squirrels are biofluorescent - they glow a bubble-gum pink under UV light! We do not know why, but it may help them find other flying squirrels at night.  
  • There are solid reasons scientists want to study Axolotls as they are salamanders with superpowers! They are able to regrow their legs, spines, jaws, lungs, heart, eyes, other organs, and even parts of their brain  perfectly with no scars!
  • Porcupines have orange teeth and a greasy substance which covers their quills  this substance has antibiotic properties  if a Porcupine is poked by their own quills  or another Porcupines quills, they will not become infected!
  • Clouded Leopards have unique ankles which rotate backwards! This allows them to climb down trees head first, climb upside down, and hang from their back feet!
  • Giant Pandas are quite vocal  they chirp, honk, bleat (yes, like a lamb or goat), croak, squeal, and bark!
  • Adult Pygmy Marmosets weight about five ounces  this is just a little more than a stick of butter.
  • Kiwis have cat-like whiskers around the base of their beak. These come in very handy, since they are nocturnal birds, as they help them find their way around in the dark.
  • The skin on Pygmy Hippos is very thin and will dry out or burn in the sun, but they make a special substance which is secreted through their skin. This substance protects the Pygmy Hippos skin with its antiseptic and sun screening properties!
