Who do you think invented the Pavlova??? 🎂 The Kiwis claim that New Zealand did, Aussies reckon it's there's. Both countries love eating this delicious cake around Christmas time topped with yummy summer fruits. After a lot of research (and not enough cake testing), we decided to give it to our Kiwi neighbours and included the Pavlova card in our Explore New Zealand Flashcard set. At least the Aussies have the Lamington, or do we??? 😕 #lamingtons #pavlova #ausvsnz #focfunfacts

I wanted to believe that quokkas were joyful little Aussie animals living on their small island smiling all-day and happy to take selfies with the visitors, but it turns out it's not the case. They have protruding teeth that make them look like they're smiling. If you can't get enough of this cute Aussie animal, grab one of our new @flashofculture quokka stickers, and it'll make you smile. 😁 #quokkas #funfact #focfunfacts
Did you know that kangaroos are left-handed? The evidence comes from hours spent observing multiple species in the wild. Two species of roo and one wallaby all showed the left-handed trend. But other marsupials, which walk on all fours, did not show the same bias. I'm a lefthander so I had to share this fun fact, about my furry fellow left-hander. #funfact #lefthander #focfunfacts
Did you know that dingos can rotate their heads almost 360 degrees to track other animals such as birds in flight? When I saw this fact, I imagined a dingo with a spinning head like an owl, but they can't actually go as far as an owl. The dingo can rotate it's head 180 degrees each way making it 360 degrees. But owls can actually spin either way 270 degrees! #focfunfacts #funfacts

It's time for a fact that I'm sure you've never ever wondered about, but once you know it, your brain will be a little bit happier for it 😁 A group of penguins in the water is called a 'raft', but a group of penguins on land is called a 'waddle'. 🐧 You have to appreciate that the linguists who make these things up have taken the logical path, but what happens when the group of penguins is jumping into the water, and some of them are half in the water and half out??? 🤔
Did you ever wonder how film and movies all began? Who came up with the crazy idea to project moving images on to the wall? Well, wonder no more. In 1895, the Lumiere brothers first projected a flickering image onto a wall of the Grand Cafe in Paris, and this was the first commercial public-screening of film. This made France the birthplace of cinema, and that's why we include the cinema card in our Explore France flashcard pack. #frenchcinema #frenchfacts #FOCfunfacts
