Did you know that the only bird that can fly backwards is the hummingbird?
And a hummingbird can lick 10-15 times per second while feeding.
They eat every 10 minutes throughout the day.
Hummingbirds are native species of the New World
and are not found outside of the Western Hemisphere.
Other trivia: in one day your heart beats 100,000 times.
That's a lot of beats!!
The first animal in space was the female Samoyed Husky named Laika,
launched by the Soviets in 1957.
Our own dog Shiloh was described as a 'Husky Mix' at the animal shelter
where we got him 11 years ago (he was 4 months old).
I think he would make a good astronaut.
