And now for some more information about those strange animal behaviours:
Female brown trout (Salmo trutta) fake orgasms to encourage a male they consider inferior to prematurely ejaculate. Their partner thinks it has successfully mated, and the female fish then moves on to find a more satisfactory partner.
The star-nosed mole (Condylura cristata) is the fastest-eating mammal in the world, capable of devouring a snack of worms in 227 milliseconds. Sounding rather like something out of Dr Who, it uses 22 pink fleshy tentacles that adorn its face, each highly sensitive to touch.
