Did you know that in one leap red kangaroos can jump 3m high and 7.6m long?

Amazingly flamingoes are monogamous birds that only lay a single egg each year. If the egg is lost or damaged they do not normally lay a replacement.

Orcas feed on fish, squid, birds, and marine mammals. Like dolphins, orcas use echolocation - bouncing sound off of objects to determine their location - to hunt and use a series of high-pitched clicks to stun prey.
