#18 confuses me. Define what you mean by "sunbathing" because there are other animals who like to --and some need to--sunbathe. Lizards need to "sunbathe" for better health; alpine ibex need to "sunbathe" in the winter to keep warm; turtles like to lie on rocks and warm their bodies. Snakes do too. Hippos, seals, cats and dogs can all be found lounging in the sun. Not saying the fact is necessarily wrong, but it requires a better explanation. Thanks!

Although they have found a earthworm measuring 22 ft in 1967...

Six metres is 19 ft...I really don't think that the information about earthworms measured six meters is accurate, and there's other mammals that are capable of sunbathing
