Summary

Did you know that in medieval times dogs were known to have accompanied their masters into battle wearing suits of armour? Or that cows from different regions moo in different accents? Were you aware that the courtship dance of some seahorses can last eight hours? Or that an albatross flies much further in a lifetime than the Apollo astronauts did on their moon missions? 

In this collection, narrators Jason Zenobia, Charles King and Lawrence Keefe talk us through over 1,000 facts about birds, cats, dogs, fish, horses, insects, lizards, sharks, snakes and spiders. Each of the 10 individual audiobooks in this collection are further split into 10 chapters, with each one having a theme such as ‘record breakers’ or ‘myths’. So, if you want to know what the wagometer was invented for, which fish the Romans used as a recreational drug or what the offspring of a donkey and a zebra is called, then this is the perfect audiobook collection for you!

for any fact lover

found it very compelling, and with a soothing voice, I'll likely listen to it again.
