    so one of us posts a animal fact and then someone has to post another fact but with an animal starting with the last letter.

    For example:

    My example: A meerkat has black rings around their eyes to protect them against the suns glare. It’s their built in sunglasses lol.

    So the next person has to post a fact about a animal that begins with T

    Yes it has latrines, like humans.

    Well since we seem to be ending up with everything beginning with S due to all the plurals, I'll do a very singular donkey who as the legend goes, now carries the symbol of a cross on its back as it once carried Jesus to Jerusalem for his crucifixion.

    Yellowhammer which where I am from (SE US) is a type of flicker, which is not in the same family as the yellowhammer of Europe, which is in the bunting family.
