Amazing facts from the animal kingdom from QI.

A funny, eccentric and confounding off-road safari through a hundred of the most interesting members of the animal kingdom. Marvel at the elephants that walk on tiptoe, pigs that shine in the dark, and the woodlouse that drinks through its bottom, as everything you thought you knew is wrong:

  • Albatrosses can fly non-stop for ten years.
  • Box jellyfish have twenty-four eyes but no bottom.
  • Geese mourn their dead.
  • Koalas don't drink.
  • Leeches have 34 brains.
  • Lobsters live for a century.
  • Mice sing while having sex.
  • Monkeys pay to look at porn.
  • And spiders can fly!
