Did you know that shark pregnancies can last 3 years, giraffes only sleep for 2 hours, and pigs can’t see the sky?

I’ve been illustrating these adorably sad facts and sharing them online for less than 2 months, and so far 6,500 people on Instagram have learned and laughed, and gotten slightly depressed.

They can't jump for a reason I guess *shrug* Imagine if elephants are able to jump or act like a dog. We're doomed.

Dogfish have the longest known gestation period of any shark, at 18 to 24 months. Basking sharks and frilled sharks appear to have even longer gestation periods, but accurate data are lacking.

This is false. I've seen my own dogs react to things on a T.V. screen. http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2015/01/150111-animals-dogs-television-pets-science-tv-behavior/

Awwwhhhh....poor beez...Everyone if you see a bee just stay out of its way and let it do its thing....they work most of there lives and people are saying there population is decreasing. So next time if you're about to kill a bee, just think...if you kill that bee its just one step closer for death to bees, and fresh tasty honey....

The sleep behaviour of giraffes was looked at in detail by Tobler & Schwierin (1996) who showed that giraffes slept both while standing and while recumbent for a total of 4.6 hours per 24 hours.

They nest in tree holes where they often sleep together in curled up positions. Their territories are marked by fecal and scent markings. Their diet consists primarily of fruits and flowers and they seem to play a part in the pollination of certain plants

Also false. Puma, cougars, and mountain lions are the same animal but Jaguars are a completely different animal. Who came up with these "facts"?
