  • Only the female mosquito bites. Good thing or we would have twice as many pesky mosquitoes around.

  • There is only one mammal that is capable of flight and that is a bat.
  • Greyhounds are the fastest running dogs in the world. They can run up to 45 mph. That's really fast when you think about it!
