Transcript of Fun Facts

By: Malley Nelson Fun Facts Introduction There are some crazy, wacky, silly things in this world, some things that we didn't even know about. Even the weird things like how many bananas a monkey can fit into its mouth or how much weight an ant can carry. Now, of course, these are all things that you don't really need to know, but wouldn't you like to be at the dinner table and say, "Hey guys guess how much weight an ant can hold?" Sometimes things are just cooler to know. Animals There are so many different categories of animals, reptiles, mammals, birds, etc., and they all can do really cool things. Insects: Miscellaneous This miscellaneous topic will cover different things like food, countries, "old timey" things, etc. Fun Facts By: Malley Nelson Mammals: I don't even think we can count how many different types of insects there are. Scientists and entomologists or "bug experts" are probably discovering new bugs as we speak. They come in so many different shapes and sizes and they are actually pretty cool when you think about them. Mammals are warm blooded animals that come from a mother's womb instead of an egg.

worth your time to sit through or it could
have been a complete waste of both mine, and your
time, but I bet you ten bucks that at least one
