All the ants in the world weigh approximately the same as all the human beings in the world.

Apples are an all-American success story-each ...

Every American eats more than 8,62 kilograms (19 pounds) of apples on an annual basis.

More apes (chimpanzees, gorillas and bonobos) are eaten by people every year than there are in all the zoos in the world.

The slightest temperature difference on turtle eggs (about 2 degrees) determines whether the turtle embryo becomes a boy or a girl. A higher temperatures drastically increases the chance of female hatchlings.

There are about 8,000 named varieties of apple. More than 40 million tons of apples are produced in the world each year.

The world’s largest producer of apples is China. The Chinese never give apples to invalids because ping, the Chinese for apple, sounds a bit like bing, which is Chinese for illness.
