Some cool animal facts include the fact that the cheetah can run as fast as 70 miles per hour, which is the speed assigned to most highways throughout the United States. In fact, cheetahs can reach the high speed as quickly as most cars can, which is within 3 seconds, according to the Cheetah Conservation Fund.
Another interesting fact is that the veiled chameleon can look in two directions at the same time as each eye can move independently. These creatures can also change colors and sometimes do this not to blend in, but because of their emotional state, notes the Smithsonian National Zoological Park.
A fascinating fact about the hippo is that it is actually considered "the most dangerous mammal in Africa," because they have huge teeth and are wildly unpredictable, states National Geographic.
