DOGS

1 The Alaskan Malamute can withstand temperatures as low as 70 degrees below zero.

An Alaskan Malamute is one of the strongest and the largest of Alaskan or Arctic Dog Breeds. It is a much larger breed than a Siberian Husky and is capable of pulling large and heavy loads across the snow. Blessed with an independent, intelligent, and strong personality, Alaskan Malamutes have been known to have survived the harshest of winters where temperatures have gone 70 degrees below zero, and have adapted themselves to their environment.

2 On average, a dog’s mouth exerts 320 pounds of pressure.

In comparison, human beings exert 120 pounds, white sharks exert 600 pounds, and crocodiles exert a whopping 2,500 pounds! Dogs also have ten more adult teeth than humans — 42 versus 32.

3 The normal body temperature for dogs is between 101 and 102.5 F, compared to 97.6 to 99.6 F for humans.
