Thread: Random Fun Facts about Animals

  1. #1

    Default Random Fun Facts about Animals

    Hmm. Was bored and decided to create this thread. If it breaks any forum rules feel free to close it or whatever.

    Anyway the purpose of this thread is to share random fun facts about animals, because nature is just that awesomely random. My favourite type of animals are reptiles

    I'll start with an octopus one. Octopuses have neurons on their arms, so their arms have a mind of their own, and therefore the arms are able to react to surroundings and even attempt to search for food once it is severed.

    The common side-blotches lizard of the Western U.S. has three polymorphs in which color and behavior correspond in a rock-paper-scissors cycle:

    Orange-throated males are ultradominant and maintain both large territories and harems. They bully blues and are cuckolded by yellows.

    Blue-throated males are dominant. They maintain smaller territories and guard only one female. Vulnerable to oranges but not yellows.

    Yellow-throated males are sneakers and maintain no territory, instead opting to mimic females. Can fool oranges but can't infiltrate blues.

    Because the colors and behaviors are highly heritable, populations experience cycles as a strong generation of one color engenders a different dominant color the next generation.

    Fun fact about clownfish. They are all born male, and the dominant one becomes female. If the female dies, the next dominant male becomes the new female.

    That is what makes Finding Nemo disturbing.

    They're also very stupid and very territorial and kind of nasty little fuckers, so I wouldn't put it past them.

    The shrike, aka the butcher bird, is possibly the most metal thing in nature.

    It's a cute little songbird that catches lizards and insects and then impales them on thorns or fences in order to rip them apart and eat them. It's also crazy territorial and will leave the carcasses of prey on spikes to mark its territory, as well as the heads of other birds.

    Hey, remember how a Xenomorph has two sets of jaws?



    Those are based on the pharyngeal jaws eels have.

    Complicating things since 2009.

    The only tree leaves that they eat, eucalyptus leaves (the only thing that they eat) are poisonous by the way. So most of their energy is spent digesting them. So baby koalas eat mama koala's poop first to get used to it.
    Thug life at its finest.

    Dolphins are the biggest assholes in the sea. They gang up to rape other dolphins and kill for fun.
