my top three for today

 

 

Dogs can have a fatal reaction to eating chocolate. Chocolate contains a bitter alkaloid called Theobromine also known as Xantheose and that’s the active ingredient that’s bad for the dog.

 

 

Giraffes can go without water longer than a camel.

 

 

Almonds are members of the rose flower family or rosaceae family. The peach is also a member of the rose family.
