Fun fact: in Super Mario 3, the far right of the screen shows the colors of the tiles in the far left, because they had to do some weird trickery in order to be able to scroll both left and right AND up and down.

Damn I recently played it on NSO and wondered about this, thought it was some weird glitch.


Bluxen

Did you know that giraffes have a blue tongue because of UV rays? They evolved like that because they always have their tongue out to pick leaves, and so they wouldn't get burned!


dmr4848

I was confused for a moment as I first read this as the blue color is due to X-rays haha. Pretty interesting fact!

Fun fact: horses cannot physically vomit


rainbow-songbird

As someone suffering from real bad morning sickness right now.... I wish I was a horse


YandyTheGnome

I understand what you're saying, but if a horse eats a plant that is toxic, they just die. Same with rats and rat poison, they can't vomit it back up so it has to pass through their system.


BarristerJohnWarosa

This is a very sad fact


kwalangmodo

Fun Fact: A giraffe can jump higher than a house. This is due to the fact that houses can't jump.

omglemurs

amazinglover

The oldest animal in the world is a clam named Ming that is 507 years old


SkgKyle

Fun fact: to find out how old Ming was, researchers had to open it which resulted in its death. RIP Ming.


ginda364

RIP Ming


Tine56

Fun fact: many think Ming died because they opened it to find out how old it is. In fact it and 200 other clams died because researchers froze them for transport. Only when it was already dead they found out how old it was.

He also abused his actors. The podcast Behind the Bastards did an episode on him

There was a card game a long time ago called wits and wagers. I used my fun fact as a trivia question for it and it got selected for a collection of fan submitted cards. So it’s fitting to use that one again! Fun fact: giraffes have 8 vertebrae, the same amount as humans, despite having significantly longer necks. In fact, most mammals actually have the same number of vertebrae, regardless of their size. Thanks for the giveaway!

Not so fun fact: there is a whale named the 52 hertz whale and it is considered the loneliest whale in the world because no other whale could hear its calls ;-; Edit: I fixed it guys,, it is indeed not a fun fact :((


throwaway9681682

>This is not a fun fact at all.

theboss555

Fun fact. Humans and dolphins are the only species in the world that think sex is fun


DrColossusOfRhodes

Bonobo chimpanzees are another species very into sex. They have sex all the time. Its an important part of their social functioning, which is one of the reasons you don't see them in zoos (to be fair, no chimps should be in zoos).


DM-Mormon-Underwear

They are also the only other species that 69s iirc


jeflor

Their name came from a misspelling of Bolobo, Zaire where they were first found.


PhilosopherSuperb598

Slightly related fun fact: "Bonobo" is a name based on a typo. The chimps were meant to be named after where they were initially found, Bolobo, Zaire, but there was a typo on the shipping crate. Hence, Bonobo.


NooneWillGiveMeAName

No, dolphins don't enjoy it, but that's just my experience


Bootybandit6989

Chris d'elia is that you?


Misaokise

Fun fact: every 60 seconds, a minute passes in Africa


Fjelhytten

Per anecdotal evidence: this is also true in Denmark


hairymonkeape

Fun fact: dog sweat through their feet and nose


emrythelion

It’s also why they pant; since they don’t sweat over large areas of their body, they rely on panting to keep their temperature regulated. They also rely on vasodilation; as their body temperature rises, which causes their blood vessels to expand and bring the hot blood closer to the surface of their skin, which allows it to cool off some as it continues its cycle back to the heart. But dogs sweat very little, and even panting and vasodilation doesn’t help anywhere near as much as sweating does for humans. Dogs are generally at a high risk of heat stroke, so always keep an eye on your furry family members and make sure they have access to shade and water on hot days.

~~Fun Fact: Link was named Link because he's the 'link' between the player and the game~~ Edit: I'm wrong. According an interview and other articles I found, he's named Link because the original idea for Zelda was a sci-fi game with time travel, and he was the 'link' between the different eras.

Fun fact: the lighter the roasting of coffee, the more caffeine
