 Oh my, what sharp teeth you have!

  1. Despite having razor sharp teeth, sharks can’t chew. They use their sharp teeth to seize and hold prey while swallowing it whole or in large pieces.
  2. The Anabas fish of South Asia has special oxygen-absorbing gills that allow it to leave the water and walk on land. It has even been known to climb trees.
  3. Whales can make sounds that can be heard up to 853 km away. That’s almost the distance between Seoul and Osaka!
  4. Dolphins jump out of the water to conserve energy – it is easier to move through air than through water.
  5. Lobsters can live for a hundred years – if they don’t get eaten first!
  6. Giant squids can grow as long as a double-decker bus and have the biggest eyes of any animal that has ever lived.
  7. The Archer fish catches its lunch by shooting pellets of water. It has been known to drown a cockroach at a distance of one and a half metres.
