Interesting Animal Facts

The Animal Facts page at a site called Vegan Peace asks you the following questions:

  • Did you know that seals can sleep under water? 
  • What's the difference between a donkey and a mule?
  • Can you tell the difference between a frog and a toad? 
  • Do you know how to tell African and Asian elephants apart? 

If you're like me, your answers for all of the above would have been an unenlightening series to the tune of: no, I don't know, no and *sigh* no.

At Vegan Peace Animal Facts, you'll find out the answers to these questions and a lot more. I like the simple, clean approach used by site owner Wanda Embar and the choice of images (some of them, like those of the turkeys, taken by her at a rescue organization called Farm Sanctuary).

NOTE TO PARENTS: Vegan Peace has pages regarding animal cruelty, children's sweatshops and other abuses that take place in the world. Although topics worthy of discussion, these are inappropriate for and would be upsetting to young children to see, so visits to this site should be supervised.
