Clownfish change gender depending on how stressed they are. So there might be a "queen" of a bunch of other clownfish, and she's always like biting them and chasing them so they stay stressed so they are all boys, and then when she dies the strongest one of them turns into the new queen from lack of stress. Kinda weird but also cool.....

Cow poop is cleaner than human poop because cows have a rigerous digestive process in which they throw up the cud(partially digested grass), chew it, and digest it four times in this way. Yucky!

Sand Cats are the only type of cats that live in the desert. Sand Cats have evolved to not drink any water and instead get all liquid they need from their prey. There are less 200 Sand Cats that are held in zoos. Scientists know very lttle about Sand Cats because they are very hard to study and spot.

I'm kinda absesed with Sand Cats.
