FUN AND SILLY FACTS




Did you know...





The kangaroo rat, named as such because it has large, powerful back legs that allow it to jump up to 3 meters (9 ft) at once to avoid predators, survives primarily on seeds and beans that are high in water content, meaning every bit of water they actually need to survive is in the food they eat.

A kangaroo rat’s kidneys are so efficient and its pee is so concentrated that it helps them survive without water for their entire life cycle.
