"Is it true that polar bears dissolve in water? I heard the reason they're endangered is because when the ice melts, they fall into the water and dissolve."

Superb! I'm almost tempted to rewrite the voting system just so I can vote for this quote more than once. ;)

Lack of breathing is one to look out for.

What kind of guinea pig did YOU have, Cheddar?
    Posted by Necropaxx on 8 Jan 2010.
The Guinean Guinea pig. The one with 12 inches of crude manpower.
    Posted by Moosh on 8 Jan 2010.
Ah, the Guinean Guinea Pig. A great pet for children (so long as you remember to buy plenty of Vaseline along with petfood).

Is it realistically textured?
    Posted by Wrongfellow on 8 Jan 2010.
Lack of enthusiasm when he IS near your anus. Or Uranus for that matter.

"Lions, famous for being the biggest carnivores in the Animal Kingdom..." (TV presenter who has obviously never heard of sperm whales, orcas, various species of shark, several types of crocodile, assorted dolphins and tigers)

Also, bears.
    Posted by Socky on 3 Mar 2010.

Do ferrets give birth?
    Posted by JT on 5 Apr 2010. + (3) - (0) Permalink
Nope. They lay eggs.

I'm considering a Nature category. We've got a lot of animal related quotes scattered all over the place at the moment. Maybe they should be given a good home.
    Posted by Wrongfellow on 7 Apr 2010.
Actually, I was going to suggest that. I've been putting most of them in Science, but they do need their own, I think.

We've had a lot of rain in the summer for the last few years. Do you think it's got anything to do with the cloud of ash?
    Posted by Wrongfellow on 8 May 2010. + (3) - (0) Permalink
Since the rain started first, I expect not.

Err... isn't nutrition what seeds are all about?
