What is the source of the most amazing facts? No, it's not historical events, and neither is the human body - it's our mother nature. With so many components like animals and plants comprising it, the weird facts are plenty. In this post we'd like to show you some of the most unusual facts about animals, so be sure to remember at least one of them, just for a right to brag about your knowledge.

Believe it or not, the biggest mammal in the animal kingdom, the blue whale can make a fart bubble so big that a horse could fit inside it (although we're pretty sure that wouldn't be very nice for the horse). Also, we bet you didn't know the unbelievable fact that a female wallaby while running from a predator, will toss her joey from her pouch to reduce her weight as well as to give her pursuer something to snack on. And did you know that an armadillo's armor is so thick that a bullet once bounced off it and hit the person who fired it? Scroll down for more weird and wonderful animal facts. They come from a website called Weird Nature and you're sure to learn a thing or two you didn't know before. Don't forget to vote for your favorite piece of animal trivia!

It's called "Schnuddelhong" (literally snot chicken) in Luxembourg.

Well, someone should herd little children. Maybe we can employee them in school. That'd be fun.

I wouldn't want to live in a shared flat with sloths. Lock themselves in the bathroom for hours and then clog the toilet with their gigantic turds.

That's so they can prey on stupid people who think they're cute and try to pet them. They're Darwin's little helpers.

They also do that when they fight for females. The breeding season's in March and here's where the popular phrase "March hare" comes from.

Reading "tubular" made my brain instantly go "tuuubular" (as in Dustin and Lukas from Stranger Things). STOP IT BRAIN! We need to think about those random animal facts and remember them...

Fun fact: orcas are natural predators to moose. The moose swim to islands on the Pacific coast, and passing orcas can sometimes get a meal out of it.

Opossums are awesome critters. Eating decaying plants from the garden and forest. Serve a great niche in our urban landscapes.

The hornet can tolerate a temperature of 115°F (46.1°C). The bees can tolerate 118°F (47.8°C). They raise the temperature up to 117°F (47.2°C), so 1°F or some 0.6°C away from what would kill them too. That's pretty impressive.

According to a Native American legend, they used to be besties, but looked very drab. So the crow came up with the idea of painting each other's feathers. The crow was very artistic and wanted to do a good job, so he took a very long time to paint all the patterns you can see on owls today. On the other hand, the owl was very impatient and in order to save time, just dumped the paint on his friend. From then on, they've become mortal enemies. In order to save his skin, the lazy owl decided to avoid his former friend. And thus owls became nocturnal and crows remained diurnal.
