Did you know that hippos attract mates by peeing, elephants only sleep two hours a night, and male bees are locked out of the hive during winter?

I’m a writer and illustrator living in the Netherlands, and I draw sad animal facts. I’ve spent the last three years researching and illustrating sad facts about adorable animals and sharing them online.

Not true. Cats have definite preferences for various people, and I know for a fact that one of ours likes men because of their deeper voices. Plus, mine come running when I talk to them.

But they have learned what tones we can hear, so when they trust us and want to communicate with us, they actually use those tones! Elephants are incredibly smart animals (and very very interesting)

Just think about it: these male birds can puke on a female and the female will STILL mate with them. Meanwhile, you're single and scrolling through sad animal facts on bored panda.
