Fun Fact!

While chasing and attacking it's prey a wolf may burn calories up to twenty times the rate they do while resting as it's heart beats at five times its resting rate. For context, a world class athlete can burn calories at no more than about five times the rate they burn at rest. The intensity at which wolves work while hunting is far beyond the capabilities of a human. Assuming the heart volume is similar to that of a human, a large wolf will have a flow rate of 5 litres per minute at rest and up to 25 litres per minute maximum! Compare that to the pumps at Wolflabs with up to 183 litres per minute then it would take a pack of more than half a dozen wolves to keep up with that kind of flow rate.

We would like to thank Steven Mills from Blackpool University for the above fun fact. The August product category will be centrifuges. Can you think of a fun fact that links centrifuges with wolves that can be made funny (or even remotely funny)? If we use your fun fact, we will be happy to send you a £50 gift voucher from a shop of your choice as thanks. Entries need to be received before 20th August 2019. Click here to enter.
