The Wacky and Wonderful World of Animals

From insects to bears and everything between, animals constantly amaze people or at least should. Animals are around us almost constantly, whether a person lives in a city or out in the country. To say that animals can be entertaining would be a major understatement. 

Knowledge about animals can also be entertaining, even if the animal happens to be one that a person has never seen. With all the facts that are available and many more that are being discovered all the time, it is no wonder that there are things that people might not know or have forgotten.
