Did you know that the slow loris – a small, cute, large eyed primate – has allergenic saliva that they get from licking patches on the insides of their elbows? Female lorises then bathe their young in it to protect them from predators when they have to leave them alone parked on a branch.
They are endangered because of the pet trade, loss of habitat and ridiculous medicinal claims.

Did you know that alligators have about 80 teeth and they get replaced when they wear down? They go through 2,000 to 3,000 teeth in their lifetime!

Did you know that female elephants are pregnant for 22 months? That’s longer than any other land animal. Some baby elephants suck their trunks for comfort and their mothers pick out babysitters to watch them so they can eat enough to produce milk. Unfortunately, all elephants are endangered.
