There are millions of different species on our planet. Some of them small, some of them massive, but they all have one thing in common – they’re all living on this world. While us humans have a negative impact on the environment, more so than any other animal, some of us also do our best to care and nurture some of these animals. There is a lot we don’t know about our fellow life forms who inhabit this planet alongside us, due to limitations in science and technology, and, of course, a communication barrier. There are, however, some things we do know about them, some things such as marriage rituals between penguins, or how turtles breathe. Here are twenty animal facts you may have known, but they’re bound to put a smile on your face.
