We need your help

Did you know that Giraffes hum to communicate with each other?
It's thought that the low-frequency humming could be a form of 'contact call' between individuals who have been separated from their herd, helping them to find each other in the dark. Some researchers think they sleep talk too.

Did you know that the biggest butterfly in the world has a 31cm (12.2 inches) wingspan?
It belongs to the Queen Alexandra's Birdwing butterfly, which you can find in the forests of the Oro Province, in the east of Papua New Guinea.

Did you know that someone left a family photo on the Moon?
When Apollo 16 astronaut Charles Duke landed on the Moon in 1972, he decided to leave behind a photo of him, his two sons and his wife. The photo remains on the Moon to this day.
