    Sorry I cant agree with the blinking statistic. Logically lets take the 84m. Thats 230,000 a day. assume you sleep 8 hours a day thats 16 hours remaining so you blink 14,375 an hour, 240 times a minute and 4 times a second!! Thats some serious blinking.

    I think the average is a blink every 4 seconds, 900 times an hour, 14,400 times a day and 5.256,000 a year

    I believe the animal described is a bontebok. The bontebok is described as having purple-black plum colored flanks, head and upper legs.
