We humans are at the top of the food pyramid and rule this world – as if this beautiful world has been created just to serve us. However this is not the case – there are millions of species in this world and hundreds of the new ones are getting discovered every year. We humans are so engrossed in our daily grind to earn a living – that many a times we fail to observe the amazing animal kingdom around us. So today get ready to be surprised with awesome anecdotes about the common animals – that you don’t know about.
1- Do you know that the insignificant Houseflies never allow small hurdles like their short lifespans of about 14 days – to hamper their musical abilities – as they always hum in the key of F.
2- You always thought that the horses are one of the fastest land animals – but you are so wrong! The flightless giant birds -Ostriches can easily outrun horses. Surprisingly the male ostriches can roar like lions and their kicks are so powerful that it can kill a lion – and you always laughed at this awkard bird!
3- Humans have always wanted to fly high in the skies – but due to natural inability to do so they invented airplanes – however there is one mammal that can do it – Bats!
4- Kangaroos use their tails for balance, so if you cut off the tail of a kangaroo it can never hop again – and of course this will be the cruelest thing that anyone can do.
5- Not only the fur of a Tiger has got stripes but they also have them on their skin. Surprisingly – no two tigers ever have the same stripes.
6- Imagine yourself in a Crocodile infested waters and suddenly your boat is overturned! To make the matter worse – a Crocodile grabs you – now what are you going to do? In order to escape the grip of a crocodile’s jaw, just push your thumb into its eyeball – It will let you go instantly.

12- Do you know which animal has the potential to stage a coup and overthrow the rule of humans? Well the answer is ANTS! You will be shocked to know that there are one million ants for every human in this world. To add to the trouble – ants also never sleep and they do not have lungs.
