Fun facts
BATS

Did you know that bats also eat mosquitoes? A breastfeeding female bat must catch half of its weight of insects in one night (bats weigh 5–40 g). A bat can catch as many as 500 mosquitoes in an hour.

FEMALE BEARS

Did you know that pregnant female bears retreat to the den during winter because they give birth to their cubs there? The cubs are born in January, are blind and weigh about 700 g. In April, they leave the den for the first time together with their mother. At that time, females are especially dangerous for walkers in the woods.

FOREST

Did you know that forest owners must remove the beechwood that was cut down in the summer as quickly as possible so that a species of beetle, Morimus funereus, does not grow inside of it? If the owners are not fast enough and these beetles get inside it, the owners must leave the wood in the forest for the offspring to fully develop. Morimus funereus is a protected species of beetle that lays its eggs in dead beech wood, which represents a great place for laying its offspring.

BLONDES

Did you know that Roman women preferred their hair blonde? They often bleached it or wore wigs made from bright Germanic hair.
