  • While they may look like a fluffy dust mop, surprisingly, Binturongs smell like buttered popcorn!
  • Peacock Mantis Shrimp have a punch which is 50 times faster than the blink of your eye and creates cavitation bubbles” which generate light and heat for a split second almost as hot as the sun  4,400 degrees Celsius! When the bubbles pop, they make a shockwave which kills their prey  if they missed with their punch.

    first known mammal to be able to smell underwater!

  • Stonefish are able to live outside of water for 24 hours  as long as it is in a moist place, as they absorb oxygen through their skin.
  • Rufous Potoos typically only sing when the moon is full. Their call sounds like they are saying poor-me-ones  if you ever hear it, you will not forget it.
