A Trip to the Zoo

It’s a good day for a field trip and Tidbits is off to the zoo! If you’re interested in animal menageries, you’ve come to the right place! • Archaeological excavations have revealed the oldest known zoological collection in Hierakonpolis, Egypt, believed to have been created by Egyptian Queen Hatshepsut around 1500 B.C. The emperor of China Wen Wan established a 1,500-acre zoological garden about 1000 B.C., dubbing it the Garden of Intelligence.

• The oldest continuously-operating zoo in the world is Vienna, Austria’s Schonbrunn Zoo, established in 1752, and still receiving more than two million visitors annually. It also holds the honor of being the first place to host the birth of an African elephant in captivity. • Philadelphia, Pennsylvania was the site of America’s first attempt to establish a zoo, creating a charter in 1859. However, construction did not begin immediately due to the advent of the Civil War. In the meantime, New York City opened Central Park Zoo in 1864 and grabbed the honor of the first public zoo in the U.S. • Although the word “hippopotamus” translates from the Greek for “river horse,” this herbivorous mammal is more closely related to the pig. It ranks third in size in land animals, right behind the elephant and rhinoceros. Baby hippos are born underwater and weigh about 100 lbs. at birth. By adulthood, one might weigh as much as 5,800 lbs. Hippos eat about 88 lbs. of food daily. At one time, hippos’ ivory canines, which reach 20 inches in length, were used by dentists for artificial teeth because they don’t turn yellow. In a zoo environment, a hippo will live about 50 years.

• Even with its enormous bulk, the rhinoceros can trot along at 40 mph. The word “rhinoceros” translates from the Greek language, rhino meaning “nose” and ceros meaning “horn.” A baby rhino enters the world weighing about 140 lbs. and can grow to about 7,000 lbs. • You think your blood pressure is high? Consider that of the giraffe, whose pressure is two to three times higher than that of a healthy human. That’s because of that long neck! The heart of a giraffe measures 2 feet long and weighs 25 lbs., enabling it to pump blood with enormous force up the neck to the brain. The average giraffe stands about 19 feet tall, 6 feet of which are its legs. At birth it was already 6 feet tall, and had endured a 6-foot drop to the ground head first! The baby calf is up and walking around only one hour after birth. An adult giraffe can weigh up to 3,000 lbs. and lives about 20 years. • The sleek cheetah, the world’s fastest mammal, can reach a speed of 45 mph in two seconds from a standstill. It then accelerates to its top speed of nearly 65 mph. Yet just 300 yards farther on, exhaustion sets in, and the animal must slow down. Half of the cheetah’s running time is spent off the ground, and it can even make a turn in mid-air! • An African elephant weighs upwards of 6 tons, stands 12 feet tall at the shoulder, and has a trunk about 7 feet long. It consumes about 300

lbs. of food in a day, and sucks up about 2 gallons of water into its trunk each time it takes a drink. The elephant is second behind human beings in longevity, with many elephants living well past age 70. A gorilla may look gargantuan, but in truth the average male gorilla stands only about 5”7” tall. He is a hefty fellow, however, weighing in at 330 lbs. The female is much smaller, averaging 176 lbs. The lifespan of these very peaceful, familyoriented creatures in the wild is about 35 years, but they will live to about age 50 in a zoo. An adult male lion eats about 15 lbs. of meat at a meal, although some might consume as much as 60 lbs. at one sitting! The full-grown adult male will weigh somewhere between 330 and 550 lbs. and can run at top speed of 36 mph, although not for very long. In the wilds, the King of the Jungle isn’t the great hunter you might think he is – he actually leaves more than 90% of the hunting to his female companion. Lions are the only big cats in which the appearance of males and females is distinctly different. The roar of a male can be heard as far as 5 miles away. Bear with us! An American black bear will reach about 660 lbs. at maturity, and a grizzly bear tops out at 860 lbs., but it’s the polar bear that takes the prize, a whopping 1,760 lbs.! It’s the only bear that will actually prey on humans. Humans aren’t their first choice, however. In their natural habitat, they prefer seal pups, and can smell a seal on the ice 20 miles away. The bears frequently eat only the seal’s fat just below the skin, ignoring the rest of the carcass, making for an extremely fatty diet. Yet it doesn’t seem to slow them down! A polar bear can sprint along at a speed of 25 mph for short distances, as well as jump a 6-ft.-high pile of snow. The koala bear isn’t a bear at all, but is actually a member of the marsupial family, joining the kangaroo, wallaby, and opossum. The koala’s diet consists of nothing but eucalyptus leaves, about a pound and a half per day. In fact, the koala would be extinct without the eucalyptus. Sounds

like a pretty boring feed, but consider that there are about 600 kinds of eucalyptus trees and to the koala, each one tastes different. If you think your teenager is lazy, consider that the koala sleeps an average of 22 hours per day! There have been koalas at the famous San Diego Zoo since 1925 when the children of Sydney, Australia gifted the zoo with Snugglepot and Cuddlepie. • Tell our advertiersers, “I saw your ad in Tidbits!”

www.TrustTidbits.com FAMOUS LANDMARKS OF THE WORLD:

THE LINCOLN MEMORIAL

The west end of Washington D.C.’s National Mall is home to the majestic Lincoln Memorial, a monument dedicated to America’s 16th president. Here are the facts and figures about this symbol of freedom honoring the “Great Emancipator.” • Although the Lincoln Memorial Association was established two years after Lincoln’s death, the monument site wasn’t selected until 1901. In 1911, President Taft signed a bill allotting $2 million for the construction, which began in 1914. • The style of the building, designed by Henry Bacon, is that of an ancient Greek temple, 100 feet high, surrounded by an open portico, constructed from Colorado marble. Thirty-six fluted columns border the open court, symbolic of the 36 states in the Union at the time of Lincoln’s assassination in April of 1865, just six days after the end of the Civil War. In the area above the columns are 48 stone garlands and the names of the 48 states in the Union when the Memorial was completed and dedicated in 1922. • To the north and south of the central hall are chambers whose walls are inscribed with the words of Lincoln’s most famous speeches, his second inaugural address and the Gettysburg Address. • Above these inscriptions are 60 x 12-foot murals, painted with special mixtures of paint, kerosene, and wax, formulated to protect the scenes from the elements. The paintings feature principles followed by Lincoln throughout his life, including freedom, liberty, justice, unity, fraternity, charity, and the law. • In the central hall sits Lincoln, immortalized in marble, 19 feet tall and weighing 175 tons. The original plans called for a 10-ft-tall Lincoln, but it was enlarged so that the statue would not be dwarfed by the huge chamber. It took four years to complete the sculpture out of Georgia white marble. Six Italian men, the Piccirilli Brothers, carved the statue in the South Bronx under the supervision of the sculptor Daniel French, and it was shipped to Washington in 28 separate pieces. (The Piccirillis were also responsible for creating the two enormous sculpted lions in front of the New York City Public Library.) If the giant Lincoln were able to stand up, he would be 28 feet tall. Above Lincoln’s likeness is an inscribed epitaph, “In this temple, as in the hearts of the people for whom he saved the Union, the memory of Abraham Lincoln is enshrined forever.”

The debt relief you need at a price you can afford!

KFKA’s annual Greeley Central/Greeley West football broadcast featured a dominating performance by senior running back David Eddy of the Spartans. From opening kickoff in this one, Eddy moved the chains time and time again and proved to be too much for the Wildcats defense. The Spartans scored every time they had the football in the first half making the score 17-0 at the end of two quarters. Because of the successful rushing attack led by this week’s Loveland Ford player of the week, Greeley West controlled the clock and notched their second win of the season with a final score of 24-6. Congratulations to this week’s Loveland Ford Player of the week; David Eddy! For more on the world of preps, college and pros, join 1310 KFKA’s Agfinity’s Sports Day; weekdays, 11a-1p.

“No,” says the psychic. “Next semester in her biology class.”

A

man went to visit a friend and was amazed to find him playing chess with his dog. He watched the game in astonishment for a while. “I can hardly believe my eyes!” he exclaimed. “That’s the smartest dog I’ve ever seen.”

R

ecently, the Psychic Hotline and Psychic Friends Network have launched hotlines for frogs. Here is the story of one frog and his discussing with his psychic.

“Nah, he’s not so smart,” the friend replied. “I’ve beaten him three games out of five.”

A frog telephones the Psychic Hotline and is told, “You are going to meet a beautiful young girl who will want to know everything about you.”

here was once a man from the city who was visiting a small farm, and during this visit he saw a farmer feeding pigs in a most extraordinary manner. The farmer would lift a pig up to a nearby apple tree, and the pig would eat the apples

The frog says, “This is great! Will I meet her at a party, or what?”

T

off the tree directly. The farmer would move the pig from one apple to another until the pig was satisfied, then he would start again with another pig. The city man watched this activity for some time with great astonishment. Finally, he could not resist saying to the farmer, “This is the most inefficient method of feeding pigs that I can imagine. Just think of the time that would be saved if you simply shook the apples off the tree and let the pigs eat them from the ground!” The farmer looked puzzled and replied, “What’s time to a pig?”

Q

: Why do seagulls live near the sea?

A: Because if they lived near the bay, they would be called bagels.

• In this season of bitter partisan rivalries, it would be well to remember the following sage observation: “Do not trust to the cheering, for those persons would cheer just as much if you and I were going to be hanged.” The man who first made that observation was Lord Protector of England Oliver Cromwell, considered by some to be a hero of liberty, by others to be a regicidal dictator. He died in 1658, probably from septicemia. He was so reviled that, three years later, he body was exhumed so that he could be posthumously executed, his body thrown into a pit and his head displayed on a pole outside Westminster Hall. • Those who study such things say that if all the gold in the world were combined in one lump, it would result in a cube that measures 20 yards on each side. • If you’re planning a trip to Lima, Peru, you might want to add Puente de Piedra to your sightseeing list. Though the Spanish name means “Bridge of Stone,” the span is popularly known as the Bridge of Eggs. Legend has it that in 1608, the builders the used the whites of 10,000 seabird eggs in the mortar that holds the stones together. • Pumpkins are native to the Americas, not Europe. This is why the original jack-o’-lantern was a turnip. • What do the words “obscene,” “tranquil,” “mediate,” “catastrophe,” “dire,” “critical,” “vast” and “apostrophe” have in common? All of them appeared in print for the first time in the works of William Shakespeare. • If you’re contemplating a move to Corpus Christi, Texas, be sure to keep in mind that in that town, it’s illegal to raise alligators in your home. *** Thought for the Day: “One fool can ask more questions in a minute than 12 wise men can answer in an hour.” -- Vladimir Lenin (c) 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

• On Nov. 7, 1776, Congress chooses Richard Bache to succeed his father-in-law, Benjamin Franklin, as postmaster general.
