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!
