Did you know that ants take about 250 naps each day or that a zebra's stripes are as unique as a human's fingerprints? These and a number of other unique facts about animals will be found on the pages of this picture book.

And, yes, it is true that hippos can't swim. Their bodies are too dense to float so they walk underwater along the river bed. I bet you also weren't aware of the fact that sea turtles can swim up to 35 mph.

Besides the wonderful weird facts you find in this book you'll also enjoy the humorous illustrations that Pete Oswald has created for the featured animals.
