Animals

Did you know that flamingo feathers are pink because of their diet?

Did you know that bees play a vital role in crop pollination and contribute towards the production of around 97% of the food we eat?

This quirky creature is a Mary River Turtle, an endangered species named after the river they inhabit. They hold a tiny ecosystem in their punk-rock algae mohawks, and have barbed chins which makes them look quite tough!

Did you know that lions can run at speeds of up to 81 km (50 miles) per hour, and the roar of a male lion can be heard at 8 km (5 miles) away?!

Did you know that Koalas sleep for 20 hours a day? These cuddly Australian creatures need more sleep than most animals because the 200-500 grams of eucalyptus leaves they munch on each day contain toxins.
