Google’s getting into the cat facts business

Google’s getting into the cat facts business

If you’ve spent any time on the internet and generally like animals, chances are you’ve spent many an hour on Wikipedia finding out random facts about a variety of critters.

Now Google is making it even easier. As spotted by Google Operating System, if you look up an animal, Google might show a random fact in the ‘did you know’ section of its knowledge graph cards.


A lot of animals still seem to be missing – I couldn’t find out any fun facts about hedgehogs, such as how they can roll around at the speed of sound – but I did learn that cats can make about 100 different noises (remember Cat Facts?), and that horses produce 10 gallons of saliva a day.

You know, important things.

Google is pulling the information for its knowledge graph from third parties, so the results will likely be fleshed out over time.
