Fun facts

Smart ass

Miniature donkeys originated in the Mediterranean islands. They’re very intelligent and said to be stubborn because of their powerful memories.

Chick me out!

Did you know chickens have a great memory? They can recognise up to 100 faces and see everything in full colour. This gal clearly remembers how to drive a manual!

Have you herd?

Cows have an acute sense of smell and can smell up to 10km away. All that sniffing must be tough work, they also like to lie down at least 14 times a day!
