Yep.
Useless knowledge is what I'm known for.

Did you know Scaphognathine pterosaurs had 6 cervical vertebrae as opposed to the common 7?

In middle Jurassic china, there was a lineage of failed proto-birds with bat wings, with the most unpronouncable name ever conceived (Scansoriopterygidae).

There's a pelvis found of an Allosaurus that had it's pubic boot pierced by the tail spikes of a Stegosaurus. It died later of a massive bacterial infection.

Allosaurus were around 5 times more likely to get a bacterial infection than other dinosaurs, based on fossils.
(Yet they survived the most crazy kinds of injuries, like the aforementioned brutal nutshot).

There's a species of velvet worms, one of the most basal type of animal, that hunts in organized packs.
(they also shoot slime out of their antennae).

Maximum gape of Tyrannosaurus was 68 degrees. 
Allosaurus 79 degrees.

Cows often graze with their heads aligned with the magnetic field, so they most often graze heading either north or south. 
Same holds true for deer actually.

There was an isolated vertebra of an ichtyosaur (extinct marine reptile) that would have belonged to an idividual between 35 and 45 m long, and over 220 tonnes heavy, dethroning the blue whale as largest animal ever.
Sadly, the ship it was on, sank during a heavy storm. RIP

Did you know kangaroos can't jump backwards? Yeah, I love useful knowledge. I was aware of the elephants not being able to jump, cat and dogs being right or left handed, and the speed cracks in glass moves but I also learned a few like cold showers being sexually stimulating, women being more apt to talk dirty during, and Vinegars being corrosive to pearls.

Life is good.

Swifts fly for 10 months straight, but not their entire life.
They live several years, and only come down again to lay eggs, brood, and when they hatch, and an occasional rest (normal sleeping is done on the wing, but after migrations, they do rest on ground)
