Despite the fear associated with them, the brown recluse spider cannot envenom a human being without assistance - such as being pressed into the skin - because their fangs are too small to actually penetrate human skin on their own.  Most reported "bites" are actually skin infections such as staph or MRSA.

Good stuff so far. Some of these I didn't know at all, which is great!

 

Hm, I should post a fact too. Let's see. The Opah is one of the few known warm-blooded fish. They live in the cold, abyssal depths where having a warm body and extra energy to burn is a huge advantage. Plus they're adorable and a neat red-orange color. Hurrah for Opah!

Good luck everyone~
