I can be very vocal -- sometimes I purr, hiss, growl, whistle, scream and just like you, whine. My hands are also so nimble that I can unlace your shoe and even pick-pocket you. So watch out! I don't look like a bandit for nothing!

It's that time of the year! Let the March Madness begin, but this time we're doing it the SheKnows way. Find out how you can get involved in the March Madness mayhem, minus the basketball. If you're already over the whole balls to the wall season, then these festive brackets are for you!

Pretty soon, I will be able to run 70 miles per hour! So not only am I the fastest land animal, but I am the only cat that doesn't roar. I only purr... I'm loveable like that.

Did you know there are more chickens living on Earth than humans? That's just crazy. (Also note: I really am a spring chicken!)

My sexy figure was no accident. We're shaped like torpedoes to help us swim, and our flippers and fins make it even easier for us to glide through water at fast speeds. We're also good at keeping secrets because our lips are sealed.

We dolphins live in family units just like you do, but we call them "pods." We stick together for a lifetime! Now if only humans could follow suit...

Baby humans suck their thumbs for comfort, but I often suck my trunk when I feel scared or sleepy. You can just call me a gentle giant.

When I was born I was only about one pound... but when I grow up, I'll be between 500-600 pounds! And don't you crave a Coca-Cola just looking at me?

We sea turtles don't mess around. We can travel up to 10,000 miles each year in search of jellyfish, and have been known to do so -- we have been tracked from Asia all the way to the West Coast of the U.S.

When I say I have a big heart, I'm not kidding. When I'm an adult, my heart will be two-feet long and weigh 20 pounds! But it would have to be in order to support a body like mine -- the average adult male giraffe weights 3,000-4,000 pounds!

When I grow up, I will be seven times stronger than the average man! Don't be afraid to ask, I will open that jar of pickles for you.

I am born with these precious white spots, but sadly I will grow out of them when I am a year old. Did you also know I am a good swimmer?

Please don't threaten me or I will roll into a tiny, tight ball to protect my face, eyes, limbs and belly.

My digestive system was made for meat, but I'm not a carnivore! Instead I eat bamboo, which has very little nutritious value. Because of this, I have to eat 30-45 pounds of it every day!

14 /16: Baby penguin

Because I'm just a baby, my feathers are soft and known as "down." When I grow up, my feathers will become waterproof. Which is good because I can hold my breath under water for 20 minutes!

I know I look dirty sometimes (not today though -- today I put on my Sunday best for this photo shoot), but it's because I don't have sweat glands. So when I get hot, I roll in the mud to keep cool. It's fun, try it some time.

I might look larger than life in this adorable portrait, but I'm only 12 inches tall and about 1.5 pounds.
