Fun Facts About Animals for Kids

There are so many animals in the world. You can't even count them on your fingers. Let's dive into fascinating facts about some animals that kids would love to color on the free animal coloring pages.

Giraffe, zebra, and elephant

Did you know that giraffes are the tallest animals? And many humans are shorter than a giraffe's legs-about 6 feet. Amazing! These mammals can hit 35 miles per hour over short distances but at 10 miles an hour over long distances. Another fascinating thing about giraffes is that their necks are so short that they can't reach the ground. Because of this, giraffes must kneel or spread their legs to drink water. Also, they get most of their water from the plants they eat. 

What about zebras? Zebras are herbivores as they are plant-eaters.  You can find zebras in Africa in grasslands and savanna woodlands. They can live up to 20 years in the wild. If they're zoo animals, they can live about 40 years. When a predator like a lion is chasing a zebra, it runs in a zig-zag pattern. A 'Dazzle' is a group of zebras.

Now the world's largest land mammal. It's the African elephant. The African and Asian elephants are the two species of elephant. How can you tell the difference? The Asian elephant's ears have the shape of the Indian subcontinent, while the African elephant's ears are shaped like the African continent. That's cool! The male can grow up to 3m high and weigh up to 6 tons or 5444 kgs. That's massive! And wild elephants can live for 60 to 70 years. 

Kids will find plenty of animals on the free animal coloring pages. Some are nocturnal animals like foxes. They sleep during the day but are active at nighttime. Others are endangered animals that are in danger of being wiped out on Earth. Examples include rhinos, blue whales, tigers, gorillas, Asian elephants, and more.
