The Quack of a Wolf Doesn't Echo!

Pepper Mill put on Fifty Amazing Facts About Animals on last night’s Animal PLanet as background noise while we were trying to get MilliCal to bed. One of the 50 amazing facts was apparently that “The Howl of a Wolf doesn’t Echo”
Right. It helps them to hunt ducks.
I missed part of it, but I’m sure they said that.

At the end of the show they added that a certain fish had a ____ that could rotate 360 degrees. They bleeped it out, so we don’t know exactly what was said (although we suspect “penis” ensued), and I missed the species of fish.

Overall entertaining, but I don’t think I’d believe anything I heard on it unless I verified it elsewhere.

I’m not sure why, but the mental image of a wolf hunting ducks really made me giggle.

I’m sure that wolves would gladly eat duck and do so regularly, but the thought of a wolf being all stealthy going after a duck sure does brighten up my day.

… until, of course, the duck snaps a mousetrap shut on the wolf’s muzzle, yells “Woohoo! Woohoo! Woohoo!” and hops madly away.

A male pig has an orgasm that lasts three weeks.

Scared heck out of me when I was 6 years old:

Peter and the Wolf

If a wolf quacks and a duck howls, does a sheep chirp or a mouse neigh?

Here’s the show:
IIRC, they had cabdude’s “fact”, too. And that Lions mate for periods of 6 seconds every 15 minutes for – I don’t know – 3 days or something.

Episode needs fact-checkers.

Rats can’t vomit.

Did you know that??

I’ve looked on the 'Net, and a lot of bloggers seem to be copying each other on the factoid that “A pig’s orgasm lasts 30 minutes”, invatriabl followed by “In my next life, I want to be a pig.”
Googling “Lion” and “sex” keeps bringing up the same bit about subliminal “SEX” in “The Lion King”, along with a sex joke.

The Internet is like rivers in Texas – miles wide and inches deep.

I also heard that an ostrich’s eye is bigger than a duck’s brain…

You probably don’t get those Cadbury Egg commercials up in canada, do ya? All different sorts of animals auditioning to be the next mascot, to replace the bunny. They’re all trying to make “buck-buck-buck” noises like they’re chickens, but it’s not working. The last one is a lion wearing bunny ears, roaring “BUUUUCK!!!”

I don’t know if that is true, but it is true that rabbits are unable to vomit. I forget why.

Penguin farts don’t echo. Nobody knows why.

Except that penguins aren’t drinkers, and don’t hit chili joints, so they aren’t likely to let loose a ripper which would echo. :smiley:

Everyone knows that as a gas cools, it condenses. Penguins don’t fart, they drip.

Which explains the black & white colouring they have. Hides the skid marks.

We get them. This year there was a couple picking up bunnies, one would meow, another would bark and finally they found the one that went buck-buck-buck and took it home to have their own supply of eggs.

An elephant is the only animal with two more knees than a duck.

Did you know whale isn’t actually a fish? It’s an insect. - Pete and Dud

I don’t know about fish but a dolphin’s penis is prehensile.

The Kangaroo and the Kiwi can’t step backwards onto a duck, and nobody knows why.
