It is Mothers’ Day on the 26th March 2022.

I thought it would be nice to explore some facts from the greatest Mother of all ‘MOTHER EARTH’

We are lucky enough to experience all that mother nature has to offer throughout the changing seasons. She is clearly very busy with forever looking after the nature around us.

The following selection are simply random fun facts; Mother Earth’s work is varied and amazing!

Giraffes can use their own butts as a pillow!

Adult giraffes sleep standing up. But babies love to nestle down and use their long necks to stretch round and rest their heads on the backsides.

Goats have regional accents!

Researchers at Queen Mary University of London found that goats seem able to recognise accents from one another.

We can grow 590 miles of hair a year!

The average person will grow 590 miles of hair in their lifetime. That is a lot of visits to the hairdressers!

Women blink more than men!

Women blink an average of 19 times a minute, whereas men blink only 11 times a minute. Another example of women achieving more in a day (lol).

The femur (thigh bone) is stronger than concrete!

Pound for pound, a human femur can withstand four times as much pressure as the same amount of concrete.

Sloths only go to the loo every 5 -7 days!

The average adult sloth can expel one-third of its own body weight in one sitting.

Bamboo can grow 35 inches in a day!

Most varieties grow 4 inches a day which is still very impressive.

DNA is flame proof!

The molecules that make up DNA are like those that make up other fireproofing substances.
