I learnt some facts about the man referred to as ‘The Elephant Man’ this week. Born in 1862, Joseph Merrick began growing disfiguring tumours before the age of 2. As his condition rapidly worsened it rendered one of his arms completely immobile.

Were you aware that the human body is about 75% water? Camels have three sets of eyelids to protect them from the sand and the elephant is the only animal that can’t jump!
