Giraffe
Giraffes are ruminants. This means that they have more than one stomach. In fact, giraffes have four stomachs, the extra stomachs assisting with digesting food



Frogs
Frogs actually use their eyes to help them swallow food. When the frog blinks, its eyeballs are pushed downwards creating a bulge in the roof of its mouth. This bulge squeezes the food inside the frog's mouth down the back of its throat.



Sharks
Sharks lay the biggest eggs in the world.

Fun post! I love learning more about our animal brothers and sisters. I definitely didn't know that about hippo's sweat turning red when they're upset! Or about the butterflies only seeing three colors (how do scientists figure THAT out, I wonder?)

Jellyfish sure are beautiful, and I only just learned that about frogs using their eyes to help them swallow from a wildlife photographer's post about toads a couple of weeks ago!
