    i didn't know ants never sleeps. i thought they do because they seem to get lost on my pantry during night time. hindi pala sila natutulog. i wonder where they'd go at night. still gathering foodies?

    Amazing, amazing! Indeed, my God is the God of creation! Those animals' skills are not odds! I remember learning the very interesting fact about a beaver. They can sharpen a tree trunk/branch way better than people. 🙂

    These animal facts really put to question the supposed superiority of man over animals.

  9. Rochkirstin Santos

    I didn't know that we humans can hold 1.5 cups of water. How big is that cup naman? I don't think I can do that!

  10. Franc Ramon

    I guess each animal has a unique trait that makes it above other animals and humans.

  11. Yamito Uytingco Calamba

    Oh wow! Ants don't sleep in their entire life, like ever? Grabe, psps! Dami nila magagawa nun. Hehe

  12. Fina Jenny

    i saw in Discovery Channel the record that the man set to stay under water for a single breath is 20 min daw 🙂 but it wont stil go near what the animal can do though..
    pero infairness gulat ako sa shark, is even if they are old cause we humans there are certain stage of our life that we can grow them but no more after that.
    gusto ko yung ability nung ants.. yayaman ako jan 🙂

    the list are really amazing 🙂

  13. Gil Camporazo

    These facts are truly amazing possessed by the animals. But man is still the greatest creation of God. Believe it or not.

  14. Francis Balgos

    I didnt know the first photo was a Beaver untill I saw the paddle like tail..
    Its really an amazing Mammal that can make dams in rivers and makeit their home.

  15. Jonas Labagala

    Wow! These animals do have different specialties and the ants don't sleep for their entire life? That would be so awesome!

    But I do love to sleep though.. hehe! 😀

  16. Riza Acebuche

    They are truly amazing animals! My most favorite are the ants. Really they don't sleep?

  17. serene shikukeza

    These are really amazing facts! My favorite part is the penguin which can jump up to 6 feetQ wow!

  18. Mai Flores

    You might find this funny, but I was saying "wow" all throughout. These are definitely wow factors for me especially about the sharks growing their teeth in 10 days!

  19. markpogi

    If I could hold my breath underwater like the beaver does, I could have took a lot of underwater photos.

  20. Kim Nieves

    Amazing animals talaga! Btw I died after seeing those penguins… for me, they're the cutest animals in the world! =)

  21. joy | chemist2writer

    Wow! Animals are really amazing. If we could have the beaver's ability to hold breath in 45 minutes, I think the seas would also be as developed as the land these days. And I can't imagine a dragonfly flying that fast! Kaya pala hindi mahuli huli kung hindi dadapo haha

  22. Mommy Pehpot

    pag pala ang dami mong pending na trabaho.. ang sarap magwish na maging ant ka na lang.. even for a week!

    so that's the reason why ants are the real hard workers!

  23. Maritel Ledesma

    where do you get this information? Nakaka-believe yung abilidad mo sa research when it comes to trivia. galing!

  24. Sumi Go

    I wish I have a cat's vision. Would love to have very clear sight of everything 😀 Btw, I think the reason for penguins' ability to jump super high is because they're actually kneeling while standing and walking normally. So kumbaga, may enough na hagod sa pagtalon — although this is just my hypothesis 😀

  25. Michelle Banayo

    Me imagining the beaver holding its breath for 45 minutes while looking that cute will make me want to ask him to 'breatheeee'. I don't want him dead!
    That beaver in the photo looks so adorable 😀
