At Wales Ape & Monkey Sanctuary we have a variety of duck.. Not all of them have been rescued, as we see many ducks visiting us or just stopping off on their route, as they seem to like and settle on our ponds..
Ducks feet has no nerves or blood vessels, meaning that their feet do not feel the cold! This enables ducks to swim in icy water, and walk in ice and snow.
Male ducks are called Drakes, females are called Hens, and baby ducks are known as Ducklings.
There are around 40 breeds of domestic ducks, with the most popular being the White Pekin.
A Red-Breasted Merganser was once recorded flying at just over 100 miles per hour, whilst being pursued by a plane.
Ducks normally migrate between 200 and 4,000 feet in the air, but are capable of reaching far greater heights. A jet plane over Nevada once struck a Mallard at an altitude of 21,000 feet! This is currently the highest recorded flight of any duck.
Depending on the species, a duck can live between 2 and 12 years.
Ducks have webbed feet, acting like peddles under the water. This is what makes them such good swimmers.
Ducks have three eyelids.
The feathers on a ducks back are waterproof.
Some ducks can fly up to 332 miles in a single day!
The perfect gift for animal lovers, why not adopt a Duck
