Fact Hunters: Butterflies, sharks and the Pacific ocean

The largest Easter Egg ever made was 25ft high and weighed 8,968 lbs. Did you know that the Bourneville factory produces 1.5million crème eggs per day. If stacked end on end they would reach higher than Everest!

Someone has been busy researching lots of facts about animals. A female peacock is actually called a peahen. Incredibly worms absorb oxygen through their skin. We taste with our tongues, but butterflies can taste with their legs!

When a great white shark is born, along with up to a dozen siblings, it immediately swims away from its mother. Baby sharks are on their own right from the start, and their mother may see them only as prey.

Did you know that the Black Tip species of shark grows slowly and takes many years to mature (12 to 18 years in some species)? They often reproduce only every other year.

Did you know that the Pacific Ocean is 165,200,000 km² which is approximately 15 times bigger than the United States?
