The whale shark is the largest fish. No fish is bigger than this 40-foot-long whale shark. The 30-foot-long basking shark is the second largest.

Bull sharks are one of the only species that can live in fresh water.

Sharks seem to be more threatened by vertical height than length, and quick, sudden movements are more likely to provoke attack.

There is a shark called the Dumb Shark. It is also called the False Cat-shark. It can grow up to 10 feet long and lives in deep, cold waters.

The pelagic thresher shark's tail is nearly as long as its body. Nearly half of this shark's 20-foot length includes its tail.

Whale sharks don't chew their food. Inside a whale shark's mouth are 3,000 to 5,000 teeth, arranged in rows. However, each tooth is so small it is useless for biting or chewing.

The jaws of bigger sharks are about twice as powerful as the jaws of a lion.

Basking sharks suck in more than 10,000 quarts of plankton-filled water an hour.

Baby sharks are born with sharp teeth and the ability hunt right from the start.

Sharks can see almost as well behind them as they can in front.

Do you know that?

Japan has 10% of the world’s active volcanoes.

Iceland is made up almost entirely of volcanic rocks like those found on the ocean floor. It gradually built up above sea level through intense and prolonged eruptions.

In August 1986, a cloud mixture of carbon dioxide and water rose from Lake Nyos, a crater lake in Cameroon (western Africa). The heavy gas cloud flowed downhill and gathered in the valleys, asphyxiating 1,700 people and 3,500 livestock living in the villages below.

An acid lake in the crater of Kawah-Idjen in Indonesia absorbs gases rising from the volcano, creating a lake so toxic it can burn through human flesh in minutes

Magma is Latin for “dregs of ointment,” which derives from the Proto Indo-European mag meaning “kneading.” The term “magma” in its geological sense as molten rock was first used in 1865.

The earliest known picture of a volcano is the nearly 8,000-year-old wall painting of an eruption of Hasan Dag volcano in Turkey. The houses of a town, Çatalhöyük, can be seen at the mountain’s base.

In Japan, “baths” in warm volcanic sand are believed to cure many illnesses.

The largest volcano found in the solar system is Olympus Mons on Mars, though it is now extinct.

Venus may have at one time produced more volcanoes than any other planet in our solar system, though they are all now extinct.

While no other planet besides Earth shows active volcanoes, Io, one of Jupiter’s moons, shows volcanoes that are erupting.

The most lava ever recorded from a single eruption was the 1783 Laki eruption in Iceland. Though there was no single big explosion, this eruption killed one fourth of Iceland’s population by producing poisonous gases and clouds of ash that resulted in widespread crop failure and starvation.

Do you know that:

The scientific name for someone who studies Prehistoric life is a Paleontologist.

The smallest dinosaurs were called Lesothosaurus, they were about the size of a chicken.

The biggest dinosaur ever is believed to be a Sauropod called Amphicoelias. This gigantic dinosaur could have reached as long 60 metres (200 feet) in length and weighed up to 120 tons.

The weight of one Argentinosaurus was 120 tons – equal to 100 elephants.

Birds descended from a type of dinosaurs known as theropods.

Tyrannosaurus lived throughout what is now western North America 67 to 65.5 million years ago. Tyrannosaurus was a carnivore with a massive skull balanced by a long, heavy tail.

Although other theropods rivaled or exceeded Tyrannosaurus rex in size, it was the largest known tyrannosaurid and one of the largest known land predators, the most complete specimen measuring up to 12.3 m (40 ft) in length, up to 4 meters (13 ft) tall at the hips, and up to 6.8 metric tons in weight. The undisputed king of the Cretaceous, this dinosaur may have lived to the ripe old age of 100 years. These dinosaurs had the longest teeth of any known dinosaur, sturdy backbones, and muscular necks.

Man evolved around 65 million year after dinosaurs became extinct.

The skull of a Tyrannosaurus rex alone measured up to 1.5m (5ft) long.

Test your fact knowledge as you look at some of the most captivating facts about Tyrannosaurus Rex.

Do you know that?

Tyrannosaurus Rex was taller than a modern day giraffe and measuring in at half the length of a small blue whale.

Tyrannosaurus Rex measured up to 13m (42ft) in length, 4m (13ft) at the hip!

The skull of a Tyrannosaurus Rex alone measured up to 1.5m (5ft) long.

They weighed 8 tons (more than a garbage truck).

Tyrannosaurus was cannibalistic.

The calculations suggested that adult T. Rex could have generated from 35000 to 57000 newtons of force in the back teeth, or the equivalent of three times the force estimated for a great white shark, 15 times the force of an African lion, 3 1/2 times the force of an Australian saltwater crocodile and around 7 times the estimated force for Allosaurus.

The average Tyrannosaurus Rex lived about 30 years.

The first, fragmentary fossils of Tyrannosaurus Rex were discovered by the famous paleontologist Edward Drinker Cope in South Dakota in 1892.

Tyrannosaurus Rex was named in 1905 by by Henry Fairfield Osborn.

The largest specimen of Tyrannosaurus Rex nicknamed “Sue” was found in South Dakota in 1990.

T. Rex probably had about 200 bones, roughly the same as us.

T. rex was a relatively smart dinosaur. Although the ratio of brain size to body mass was very small for T. Rex, it was larger than most other dinosaurs.

T. rex's brain was larger than the human brain, but the cerebrum (the part of the brain that we use to think) was tiny.

T. Rex went extinct during the K-T mass extinction, about 65 million years ago.

Test your fact knowledge as you look at some of the most captivating facts about tigers.

Do you know that?

Tigers are the biggest cats in the world.

Tigers are an endangered species; only about 5,000 to 7,400 tigers are left in the wild.

There are a greater number of tigers in captivity in the US alone than there are wild tigers left on earth.

Tigers prefer to hunt large prey by ambush. If you look at a tiger, it is less likely to attack, as it has lost the element of surprise. In some locations in India, people traditionally wear a mask on the back of their head while walking through forests to prevent tigers from pouncing from behind.

Tigers are very adaptable in their hunting techniques. Although they prefer to kill by attacking the neck, they do not do so when they recognize it is inappropriate. A large crocodile might bite down on a swimming tiger, which will immediately blind the reptile by striking it in the eyes. A crocodile’s neck is covered with thick amored skin, so the tiger will instead flip the animal over and eviscerate its soft belly.

Siberian tigers are the heaviest subspecies at 500 or more pounds (225 kg), with males heavier than females. The lightest subspecies is the Sumatran; males weigh about 250 pounds (110 kg) and females around 200 pounds (90 kg).

Tiger stripes are like human fingerprints; no two tigers have the same pattern of stripes.

Tiger cubs are born blind and weigh only about 2 to 3 pounds (1 kg), depending on the subspecies. They live on milk for 6-8 weeks before the female begins taking them to kills to feed. Tigers have fully developed canines by 16 months of age, but they do not begin making their own kills until about 18 months of age.

To show happiness, tigers squint or close their eyes. This is because losing vision lowers defense, so tigers (and many other cats) only purposefully do so when they feel comfortable and safe.

Tigers can sprint at over 60km/h for short distances.
