I love random animal facts. Who doesn't? I mean, just animals in general are amazing, right? But then there are these little things about each one—facts that, once we hear them, tend to stay in our minds.

And as a person myself for almost four decades, I can't help but to personify these facts and wonder how they would translate into our less innocent world. Like, a slug can sleep for 3 years, but then what would his library late fees be like?! What books would he take out? Salt: A Thriller? So I draw them out in my comic, ZOODRAWS.

I’d really love to compile all these facts into a book. In fact, when I started this comic in March, I planned to do just a children's book of "ABC Animal Facts" for my 4-year-old son. He loves nature shows as much as I do, and that’s my main source of new facts. But then... oops, I started drawing dolphins telling each other off and wombats selling their poop as brownies... and Capuchin monkeys peeing on themselves, etc.

So an “ABC Book of Sometimes Appropriate Animal Facts" it will hopefully someday be! Till then, I hope you enjoy these!

Check out my previous animal comics on Bored Panda here and here.

My favorite is when they get bitten by venomous snakes. They just take a nap until the venom wears off.

Scientists believe the impact of the calf hitting the ground, actually helps them begin breathing on their own.

Vampire bats are also altruistic. They share blood with cavemates who didn't make a successful hunt. BUT if someone is known to be stingy and not share their blood with others, those others won't share blood with them when they're needed! They're a great example of 'scratch my back I scratch yours'.

On planet Earth, gifting anyone anywhere a cat is good luck in my opinion, because then that person has a cat

This happened to me once when I was a kid. They all came off a bush in my parents front yard. I avoided that side of the house for like 3 years :D

On the contrary to most people's opinions on spiders, I actually really like them. They're really good for the ecosystem, and I find them kinda cute. That's only my opinion, though. I could definitly see them being scary to some people.

Saaame. These guys are absolutely cuties and I don't see why they're so feared. The vast majority can't actually hurt you and they're tiny fluff balls who just want to control pests and weave webs. What's not to love?

Ah... Flying spiders. Sure sign the autumn is coming. Waxing nostalgic here. Not that we ran out of spiders, but as a kid I always had a sad, but uplifting feeling - school will start soon, will see school friends, but at the same time will soon be saying goodbye to countryside friends...

In Germany late summer/early autumn when it's still warm is referred to as "Old Women's Summer", because the shiny strands of silk gliding through the air look like old women's hair

When I was a youngin and fresh out of home, my boyfriend had a pet spider that ate the mosquitos that came inside. I thought... ok. its only got 5 legs. How much trouble can it be? Came out one morning to find a million baby spider bungee jumping from the loungeroom ceiling! I called in reinforcements with bug spray.

That's not entirely true. They can remain stationary in a current.
