Animal Facts

Currently, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) requires breeders who sell animals to pet stores to obtain a federal license, but those who breed and sell animals directly to individuals (through newspaper ads, etc.) are exempt from federal licensing and inspection requirements. Further, breeders who have three or fewer "breeding females" are considered "hobby breeders" and can sell animals to pet stores without a license.

Hyenas have an appetite for just about anything -- and unlike many mammals, they can even digest bones.

The word "puppy" comes from the French poupee, meaning "doll."

The Wind Beneath These Wings

The wandering albatross has the largest wingspan of any living bird. One reported male specimen had a span of 11 feet and 11 inches

Some ants are ferocious hunters. The driver ants of Africa and the army ants from South America cling tightly to one another (in large groups of 10,000 to 500,000) as they travel across the land looking for food and attacking any animals who get in their path. These vicious creatures have been known to kill tarantulas, lizards, birds, snakes, pigs and sometimes animals as large as horses. Usually larger animals can get away from the oncoming ant army, but if they are caught off guard or sleeping, these could become "drive-through" rations for the hungry army
