Cats spend 65% of their time sleeping and 25% grooming. That leaves 10% to do other things.

I know some of these are true, but I can't be sure about all of them.

But that one's completely made up... The one about sleep I posted has at least half of the facts right.

Man hole covers are circular because they're the only shape that won't fall through their own hole.

There is a phobia (with a very long name which I cannot remember) that people have....that ducks are ALWAYS watching them.

Ooooh! I used to have a Princess Tutu pic of that... Let's see if I can dig it up...

...Can't find the pic, but the phobia is called "Antidaeophobia"

Turtle Facts!!! Obviously, I love turtles~

* The first known turtles existed 200 million years ago.

* There are approximately 300 species of turtles.

* Turtles live on every continent except Antarctica.

* Turtles are cold-blooded. One way they regulate their temperature is by basking.

* Some turtles, such as the Musk turtle, emit an odor when startled.

* Not all turtles and tortoises hibernate.

* The blood of hibernating turtles acts somewhat like antifreeze, allowing it to tolerate cold temperatures.

* Some female turtles produce eggs four years after mating.

* Many species make sound, especially while mating.

* Incubation temperature determines the sex of the hatchling.

* All turtles lay their eggs on land.

* Hatching turtles have an egg tooth at the end of their beak to help open the egg.

* Some land turtles can out run a human.

* The smallest turtle, the Speckled Padloper is 4". The largest is the Leatherback sea turtle, that can
reach up to 10' in length.

* Turtle shells DO break.

* The color and patterns of each species allows them to blend into their natural environment.

* Turtles can regrow bony and keratin tissue.

* Not all turtles have hard shells. For example, Softshell turtles and sea turtles have flexible shells.

* Box turtles are not the only turtles with a hinge to allow part of their shell to move.

* Turtle shells are built into their skeleton.

* The top shell, the carapace, is made up of approximately 50 bones.

* Counting the growth rings on the scutes (scales) of the top shell does not tell the age of the turtle or tortoise.

* Some turtles have hinges on their shells to enable them to close up tightly inside.

* Turtles cannot protrude their tongues from their mouths.

* Aquatic turtles have streamlined shells to help them move through the water. They also have webbing between their toes.

* Aquatic turtles must be in water to eat.

* Tortoises only go to water to drink. They do not swim.

* Some tortoises can dig burrows 45 feet long.

* Many turtles are expert climbers.

* Land turtles ears are sensitive to ground vibration.

* A group of turtles is classically called a bale.

* One of the most common health problems is MBD, Metabolic Bone Disease, caused by improper diet and care.

* All turtles and tortoises do not have the same habitat and nutritional requirements. Therefore, it is very important to research the kind of animal you have or plan to own.

* Turtles have good eyesight, seeing in full color and a strong sense of smell. They have excellent hearing and sense of touch. Their shells have feeling due to nerve endings.

* Instead of teeth, turtles have a sharp beak for eating. Depending on species, the beak may be scissor-like, hook-like, or serrated. The earliest turtles did have teeth and could not retract their head.

* Some turtles can live up to a year without food.

* Tortoises from dry environments have thick scales on the skin to prevent fluid evaporation. Aquatic and semi-aquatic turtles have thinner skin and lack heavy scales.

* Turtles shed their skin in small flakes rather than pieces like other reptiles.

* Sea turtles can swim up to 35 mile per hour.

* Several species, including the American Box turtle, can live to be over 100 years old.

Lauren Weisberger, the author of The Devil Wears Prada, based the story off her experience as an assitant.
