Examples of 'I don't believe it' fascinating facts:
• Bushbabies have two tongues! When eating gum – a sticky substance made by trees – they use their teeth to scrape it off the bark. Then they wipe the gum off their teeth with their second tongue!
• Male hamadryas baboons have silver-white fur and thick manes, which led ancient Egyptians to believe they were sacred.

Activities to make learning accessible and interactive include:
• Quiz question: What is the name of the island where lemurs live?
