A giraffe can go without water longer than a camel can.
Blue whales weigh as much as 30 elephants and are as long as 3 Greyhound buses.
Crocodiles and alligators are surprisingly fast on land. Although they are rapid, they are not agile; so if you ever find yourself chased by one, run in a zigzag line. You'll lose him or her every time.
