Friday is World Animal Day, and so this week is Animal Week at Ask a Scientist!

Keep an eye on our twitter account @askascientist where we’ll be tweeting a range of interesting animal facts throughout the week, including eye-opening figures about endangered species from around the globe.

For more in-depth information, why not check out our animal related posts to read about the breeding cycle of Giant Pandas, watch a short video that looks at why cats nearly always land on their feet, and much much more.

You can also get involved in Animal Week by tweeting us your facts using the #animalweek hashtag, or ask us a question you have about animals, and we may publish it on the site!
