Roll Over On Your Side

As anyone with a grounding in infowispology knows, only 7% of cats snore. Ours (see picture a few entries below) is one of those. Dogs are more common snorers, with over 20% of pooches prone to it. Badgers are thought to be the worst culprits - nearly all badgers are loud snorers. Naturalists used to believe that other animals and birds refused to nest near badgers due to their smell, but it appears their snoring is the real reason. For some reason, female dromedaries mostly snore, but males never do. Birds are not generally snorers, but Ophelia, an ostrich at Antwerp Zoo had to be moved in 1990, as her snoring was disrupting the zebras in a neighbouring compound.
