How wide is a queen mattress?

A queen size mattress is usually around 60 inches wide and 80 inches long. This width allows most couples to roll over without disturbing each other too much, as well as gives solo sleepers plenty of space to stretch out. Queen mattresses are also usually more than 6.5 feet long, which can accommodate tall sleepers.


Some octopus species lay 56,000 eggs at a time.

On average, a giant Pacific octopus will lay 56,000 eggs at the end of a pregnancy, over the course of about a month. At first, these new babies float through the surrounding water unattached to one another or their mother. But then the mother gathers each egg—which is about the size of a grain of rice—and weaves them into braids, allowing her to keep an eye on everyone at the same time.
