Friday Facts: Week #1

Greetings, HAPPY FRIDAY EVERYONE! Today is the start of Biobunch's 1st blog series (Friday Facts). Brace yourselves!

Humans are way more of a threat to sharks than sharks are to us. Worldwide, there are around 5-15 shark attack fatalities per year, to put that in perspective falling out of bed kills more people than sharks. On the other hand around 100 million sharks are killed by humans annually due to overfishing, by-catch and shark finning (used to make expensive soup), which is quite upsetting and shocking if you ask us. 

If the stars in the observable universe were distributed amongst (2013) human population, everyone would end up owning  42.1 trillion stars.
A seven-year-old cheetah named Eleanor has mothered at least 10 percent of all the adult cheetahs in the southern Serengeti.

Slow lorises are the world's only venomous primate. The toxin provides defense from predators and mothers lick the toxin onto their young's fur for protection.

The largest gem-quality diamond ever found is the Cullinan diamond (3106.75 carat). It was found on 26 January 1905 in South Africa. It was then split and cut into 7 major stones and 96 smaller stones.

If blood vessels were laid end to end, they would distance approx 62,000 miles - circle the earth 2 times.
