I love the television program QI. Stephen Fry, arguably one of the smartest people in the country, challenges our knowledge of everyday facts and presents us with some rather unconventional new ones. I particularly enjoy the strange and unusual facts about the animal kingdom. Here are a few of my favourites.
There is no such thing as a fish!
Kangaroos can't fart!
The fingerprints of a koala are the same as those of a human!
All strange and unusual facts that are open for debate. However, there is one animal fact that I would dispute. There is no way that a cheetah is the fastest animal. I know that there might be some of you out there claiming that a peregrine falcon is the fastest. They are certainly faster than a cheetah, but not a patch on a weasel fired out of a cannon.
