  3. Sauroposeidon
    Trivia Teaser: Sauroposeidon, a huge, long-necked sauropod, was found in Oklahoma, USA, and may be the biggest dinosaur yet found. The name Sauroposeidon means “Lizard Earthquake God,” because this behemoth probably shook the ground when it walked. This giant plant-eater weighed about 60 tons and was about 60 feet tall. It has the longest neck in the fossil record, beating even the enormous dinosaur Mamenchisaurus. Individual vertebrae (neck bones) are up to 4 feet (1.2 m) long. A single bone looks more like a tree trunk than part of an animal’s neck. Sauroposeidon lived about 110 million years ago, during the mid-Cretaceous period.

  4. Rice, Millet, or Sorghum
    Trivia Teaser: Rice, millet, and sorghum are thought to be the first crops ever cultivated. Rice has been cultivated for over 5000 years. There are thousands of different varieties of rice (Oryza sativa). At the International Rice Research Institute Genetic Resources Center in the Philippines, there are 80,000 rice samples in cold storage. Rice is grown on every continent except Antarctica. The millets are a group of small-seeded species of cereal crops, widely grown around the world for food and fodder. They do not form a taxonomic group, but rather a functional or agronomic one, based on similar characteristics and uses. Sorghum originated in the north-east quadrant of Africa and spread from there throughout Africa and into India. In 1994, sorghum ranked fifth among the most important cereal crops of the world after wheat, rice, maize, and barley in both total area planted and production.

It has a huge mouth which can be up to 4 feet (1.4 m) wide at the very front of its head (not on the underside of the head like in most sharks). It has a wide, flat head, a rounded snout, small eyes, five very large gill slits, two dorsal fins (on its back) and two pectoral fins (on its sides). Whale sharks have about 3,000 very tiny teeth but they are of little use. This enormous shark is a filter feeder and eats by sieving huge amounts of plankton through its gills as it swims. The whale shark has distinctive light-yellow markings (random stripes and dots) on its very thick dark gray skin. Its skin is up to four inches (10 cm) thick. There are three prominent ridges running along each side of the shark’s body.
