1. When a male lion gets in the mood, he really gets in the mood and copulates about 650 times over a one week period. True or False?
During a lion’s season of romance, an alpha male lion mounts a female about every 15 minutes for a full straight week! On average, this means a lion stud gets nookie nearly 672 times before he is finally exhausted. Which may explain why he takes a two-year hiatus before trying THAT again! Well, now, we know the real reason the lion was crowned “king of the jungle.”
2. When a Nile hippo is upset their sweat:
a. turns red
When excited, startled or nervous, a Nile hippo has the charming ability to ooze a red oil from their mucous gland that is easily mistaken for blood. The red oil is meant to condition the hippos skin, but it may have the second purpose of scaring off surprised predators.
3. If you lift a kangaroo’s tail it:
c. cannot hop
A kangaroo can hop at the impressive speed of 60 miles an hour (imagine one hopping next to your car on the freeway!), but it cannot go anywhere if you hold up its tail. I guess that isn’t all that surprising when you really think about it!
4. The fastest animal is:
c. peregrine falcon
The fastest animal on land is the cheetah (70 mph), but the fastest animal is the peregrine falcon that can dive at a dizzying 200 miles an hour! The fastest sea animal is the sailfish who can clock 68 mph.
