Did you know that giraffes have a blue tongue because of UV rays? They evolved like that because they always have their tongue out to pick leaves, and so they wouldn't get burned!
I was confused for a moment as I first read this as the blue color is due to X-rays haha. Pretty interesting fact!
Fun fact: all dog breeds originally from China have blue tongues. it’s a noble symbol of 唐狗 (“tong gou”, China Dog) 🐕
"Fun" fact: birds around Fukushima are redirecting an antioxidant molecule from their feathers to their bloodstream. This helps them fight radiation and has the side effect of making them duller colours as the molecule is responsible for bright colours like blue and orange.
I see why you out quotations around fun.
This is really cool nonetheless thanks for sharing!
Fun fact: horses cannot physically vomit
As someone suffering from real bad morning sickness right now.... I wish I was a horse
I understand what you're saying, but if a horse eats a plant that is toxic, they just die. Same with rats and rat poison, they can't vomit it back up so it has to pass through their system.
This is a very sad fact
Fun Fact: A giraffe can jump higher than a house. This is due to the fact that houses can't jump.

Second fun fact that I wrote in the page : when you reach the point of the game where you can play as Eva, you can open the health care panel to heal her. In there you can read her medical record. It is stated that years prior the events of the game, she underwent breast enhancement.
From a Metal Gear fan to another I really hope you get this giveaway. You deserve it.
Another fun fact…. I know what a Wikipedia is
Was that Pre saline bags or the nasty silicone days?
What was that noise?
I'm all over this post!
That's awesome dude lol
Fun fact: there are only 4 shapes of McDonald's nuggets and they even have names: bone, ball, bell and boot.

The oldest animal in the world is a clam named Ming that is 507 years old
Fun fact: to find out how old Ming was, researchers had to open it which resulted in its death. RIP Ming.
Fun fact: many think Ming died because they opened it to find out how old it is. In fact it and 200 other clams died because researchers froze them for transport. Only when it was already dead they found out how old it was.
Fun fact: this is the exact age someone born in 1997 would have to reach, to see the release of the elder scrolls 6

The podcast Behind the Bastards did an episode on him

Fun Fact: A "jiffy" is an actual unit of time: 1/100th of a second

Fun fact: Robin Williams loved the Zelda series so much, he named his daughter Zelda!
Bonus: Both Robin and Zelda (the human daughter) appear in a trailer for the ocarina of time remake!

That is awesome!
Zelda also voiced Kuvira in the Avatar: Legend of Korra!

Fun fact the expected return here is better than at any lottery.

Not with that attitude!
Here's a random fun fact: honey typically doesn't go bad, it only does if you don't store it properly👍
(I learned that from watching someone stream a meme game on Twitch)
Why is it when the comment doesn't matter it just makes me more stressed on what to write? I'm sure I'll think of a clever comment right after posting this one.

Fun fact: Napoleon was once attacked by thousands of rabbits.
There was a card game a long time ago called wits and wagers. I used my fun fact as a trivia question for it and it got selected for a collection of fan submitted cards. So it’s fitting to use that one again!
Fun fact: giraffes have 8 vertebrae, the same amount as humans, despite having significantly longer necks. In fact, most mammals actually have the same number of vertebrae, regardless of their size.

This is the 2nd giraffe fact 🤔
3rd if you count the house jumping one
I didn’t see the tongue one when I made the comment.
Another interesting fact about giraffes: A giraffe’s optic nerve travels all the way down their neck from the eyes and back up to the brain.
Not so fun fact: there is a whale named the 52 hertz whale and it is considered the loneliest whale in the world because no other whale could hear its calls ;-;
Edit: I fixed it guys,, it is indeed not a fun fact :((
>This is not a fun fact at all.
At least Wikipedia says it’s because it’s the only whale calling at that frequency. There are whales that call lower and higher. Just no other at that specific range.

Another fun fact: All swans in England belongs to the monarch, except for the ones in Thames.
Fun fact Writers Block just happened.
Fun fact. Humans and dolphins are the only species in the world that think sex is fun
Bonobo chimpanzees are another species very into sex. They have sex all the time. Its an important part of their social functioning, which is one of the reasons you don't see them in zoos (to be fair, no chimps should be in zoos).
They are also the only other species that 69s iirc
Their name came from a misspelling of Bolobo, Zaire where they were first found.
Slightly related fun fact: "Bonobo" is a name based on a typo. The chimps were meant to be named after where they were initially found, Bolobo, Zaire, but there was a typo on the shipping crate. Hence, Bonobo.
No, dolphins don't enjoy it, but that's just my experience
FOR THE LAST TIME RICHARD THAT'S NOT WHAT THE DOLPHINS BLOW HOLE IS USED FOR.
Stop fucking dolphins then
Dolphins have also been known to rape humans
Dolphins also use wave currents to wank. None of these are episodes of Flipper that made it to air.
Chris d'elia is that you?
The female praying mantis also would like a word
This is objectively wrong. Bonobos would like to have a word with you.
So, why do my dogs hump my legs and pillows?
What about bonobos?
tell that to my dog
Fun fact: Only 10-20 percent of the population can wiggle their ears. I’m one of those lucky few and hope to also be lucky enough to win this terrific giveaway. 😃

Fun Fact: Ugly ducklings are not ugly they haven't just hit puberty yet..
Fun fact: every 60 seconds, a minute passes in Africa
Per anecdotal evidence: this is also true in Denmark
Fun fact: dog sweat through their feet and nose
It’s also why they pant; since they don’t sweat over large areas of their body, they rely on panting to keep their temperature regulated.
They also rely on vasodilation; as their body temperature rises, which causes their blood vessels to expand and bring the hot blood closer to the surface of their skin, which allows it to cool off some as it continues its cycle back to the heart.
But dogs sweat very little, and even panting and vasodilation doesn’t help anywhere near as much as sweating does for humans. Dogs are generally at a high risk of heat stroke, so always keep an eye on your furry family members and make sure they have access to shade and water on hot days.
~~Fun Fact: Link was named Link because he's the 'link' between the player and the game~~
Edit: I'm wrong. According an interview and other articles I found, he's named Link because the original idea for Zelda was a sci-fi game with time travel, and he was the 'link' between the different eras.
Fun fact: the lighter the roasting of coffee, the more caffeine
This is actually not really true. The lighter the roast, the heavier the bean (due to more water), but the difference in caffeine content from roasting levels is negligible.
Fun fact, I applied for a new job
