Unlike most animals, whales are conscious breathers. All mammals sleep, but whales cannot afford to become unconscious for long because they may drown. It is thought that only one hemisphere of the whale's brain sleeps at a time, so they rest but are never completely asleep.
|If they can't really sleep, does that mean whales don't dream?|

There are three types of zebra species: the plains zebra, the mountain Zebra and Grévy'ss zebra. The plains zebra is the most common type and has 12 subspecies living in much of southern and eastern Africa.
The mountain zebra lives in southwest Africa and tends to have a sleek coat with a white belly and narrower stripes than the plains Zebra.
Grévy's zebra is the largest type, with a long, narrow head, making it appear rather mule-like. Grévy's zebra is the rarest species, and is classified as endangered.
Can you tell much of a difference between the three species of zebras? It's OK, we really can't either ;-)

Did you know that most species of snakes of six rows of teeth? They have two rows of teeth on their upper jaw and four rows of teeth on the bottom.
And while all snakes have teeth, not all snakes have what are classified as fangs. Fangs are long, hollow teeth that emit poison, which means only venomous snakes have them. Some snakes have fangs that can fold back into their mouth so they don't bite themselves.

All wild penguins live south of the equator. And despite popular belief, not all wild penguins live in cold climates such as Antarctica. Few actually live that far south, with most wild penguins inhabiting more mild climates. One species, the Galapagos Penguin, actually lives close to the equator.
