Can You Guess Which Animal Fact We Made Up?

Do chimps kiss each other? Some animal facts are pretty unbelievable, just like how the quarter-pound* Double Stack™ shouldn’t be in the Wendy’s 4 for $4**. At participating locations, it is.

    Celtic music is not inspired by the songs of whales.

    Music is an integral part of the humpback whale’s communication. Like a hit tune, songs will evolve, and as the sound spreads, other whales will join along. Surprisingly, it is said that the whales will sing together, creating a melodic tune known as “whale songs.” Unfortunately, Celtic music was NOT inspired at all by whales.

    Flamingos don't stand on one foot so they can feed.

    Flamingos get their pinkish color from the carotenoids in their diet, like algae and small crustaceans. Speaking of their bright color, their name is derived from it! Flamingo comes from the Latin word “flamenco,” which means "fire"! And tbh, nobody really knows why flamingos stand on one foot.

    Turtles don't attract the ladies by bobbing their head.

    That's right, a turtle's shell is actually made of about 50 bones! Like, say whaaaa? And turtles do indeed have an excellent sense of smell. Supposedly, male turtles can smell pheromones that attract them to a potential mate...even though we all wish they did a funny little dance instead!

    Sadly, penguins don't take their potential mates on dates.

    Penguins are basically the best parents ever and can recognize their chick’s voice in a crowd of 50,000 baby penguins! Believe it or not, penguins can’t fly! In fact, their little wings are better suited for swimming rather than flying. And while they do mate for life, penguins unfortunately don’t take their potential mates out to a nice candlelit dinner (but we can dream).

    Wrong!

    Male lions do not hunt while females watch the cubs.

    The older the lion, the darker the mane! Crazy, right? Lions that live outside a pride, usually traveling with only a few companions, are called nomads. Actually, the female lions are the hunters since they are smaller and more agile.

  6. Correct!
    Wrong!

    Snakes don't dislocate their jaw while eating.

    Don’t challenge a snake to a staring contest because they don’t have eyelids! You. Will. Lose. Snakes use their tongue to bring molecules into their mouth where the smells are analyzed. Most people think snakes can dislocate their jaw, but they actually don’t have anything to dislocate! They have stretchy ligaments that let them open their mouth extra wide.

  7. Correct!
    Wrong!

    A group of bats is not called a clique.

    Sure, some mammals can glide, but bats are the only mammal that can truly fly because of their webbed wings. Baby bats are called pups! How cute is that!? But a group of bats is called a colony, not a clique — even a group of super-popular bats.

  8. Correct!
    Wrong!

    Seahorses are not a type of crustacean.

    Even though it doesn’t have scales, a seahorse is still a fish. Each seahorse has its own unique bony structure on its head called the cornet. Like nautical BFFs, seahorses hold each other's tails when they travel. Awwww.

  9. Correct!
    Wrong!

    A group of chimps is not called a champ.

    Although it sounds pretty rad, a group of chimps is not called a champ. But chimps do kiss and hug each other like lil’ cuties! And baby chimps have been known to play with dolls, so basically they are adorable yet more hairy versions of us.

Some of these facts seem impossible to believe. Just like Wendy’s adding the Double Stack™ as an option in the 4 for $4** for a limited time. With a quarter pound of beef*, that’s a deal so good, it should not exist. 😱

*Approx. weight before cooking.
**Meal includes 4-piece nuggets, small fry, and a small drink. At participating Wendy’s for a limited time. Offer not valid in Alaska or Hawaii.
