With each breath they fill not only their lung but a set of redundant internal air sacs. Basically, they use the hollow parts of their bodies to keep extra air ready for them. https://www.birdwatchingdaily.com/news/science/eldon-greij-describes-amazing-way-birds-breathe/

>Although possessing mammary glands, the platypus lacks teats. Instead, milk is released through pores in the skin. The milk pools in grooves on her abdomen, allowing the young to lap it up. For the other one, you'll just have to Google platypus penis

A dolphin sleeps with only one side of its brain at a time. When the left side sleeps, the right side is awake and vice versa. So technically a dolphin never sleeps. Which is handy as they do need to breathe air to survive.

Spotted hyena females are indistinguishable from males even if you are next to the animal. Until they have given birth, they have a pseudo penis and testicles. After they give birth, the top of the fake penis blows off and nipples become notable even after nursing stops.

The Greenland shark is the oldest living vertebrate species in the world. 400 years old, they were alive before the pilgrims entered America. Also, Bowhead whales have been roaming the oceans since the 1880’s. It’s just crazy to think of the lifespan of some species.

Cats shaking their back leg at you is an insult. Cats shaking their front leg is, they are done with what they have in front of them. A cat blinking at you when you ask them a question is yes, shaking their head slightly, is no.
