Peanut is not a Nut?

I believed before that peanut is a nut. The name itself suggests peanut is a nut. But the truth is:

  • A peanut is not a nut or a pea, it's a legume.

More facts below:

2. A penguin swims at a speed of approximately 15 miles per hour.
3. A perfect game in baseball is one in which the same player pitches the entire game without allowing any player of the opposing team to reach first base -by any means.

6. A shark is the only fish that can blink with both eyes.
7. A shrimp's heart is in its head.

8.A snail can actually glide over the sharp edge of a knife or razor without harming itself. This 9.has something to do with the mucus it produces.
10.A snail can have about 25,000 teeth.
11.A snail can sleep for 3 years.
12.A snail can travel over a razor blade without cutting itself.
13.A sneeze can exceed the speed of 100 mph.
