Me and my friend made this up over winter break and I found it really fun, and I learned a lot of things! So basically one person names an animal they would like to learn an interesting fact about, and the second person writes one, and then names an animal they would like to learn a fact on. And it goes on and on.
eg.
Bob: Tell me something about rabbits!
Joe: Did you know that rabbits are capable of purring, similar to a cat? I would like to know a fact on rhinos!
Katie: The black rhino can live up to five days without water. Gimme a fact on frogs!
etc.

Hmm, I'll start with...chinchillas! :lovestruck:

Iguanas can stay under water for 28 minutes. A DIVER! :P

Oh this one is fun (bonus), Airplanes in America collide with an average of 1 iguana every 2 years on runways (according to federal records).

Can someone tell me something about a dog, particularly a Dachshund?

The noble wiener dog was developed in Germany in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, although there are illustrations from as far back as the 1500's depicting a Dachshund-like dog. Some even believe that the Dachshund has been around since Ancient Egypt! I call it the "Mystery of the Dachshund Dog".

Tell me about bengal tigers... :D

1% of all bengal tigers are DNA verified hybrids. They have one parent that is a Bengal Tiger and one that is a Siberian Tiger. Cool!

Uhm....I would like to know about sugar gliders...

Sugar Gliders have opposable fingers and toes, and they can glide over 150 feet! They also rarely touch the ground in the wild.

I'd like to know something about Norwegian Forest Cats (I've got two of them :))

Flamingos are pink/orange because of the chemicals (beta-carotene, lycopene) in the foods they eat.

I would like something about snails :)
