Want to know some wild facts about wildlife? How about these: Penguins cheat on their mates, moose get drunk, and worker ants are known to laze around.
There are so many unusual facts out there that zoologist Lucy Cooke, an award-winning filmmaker and National Geographic explorer, wrote a book chock-full of them. And it debuts this Tuesday, April 17.
That same day, Live Science will sit down with Cooke on Facebook Live to learn more about her book "The Truth About Animals: Stoned Sloths, Lovelorn Hippos and Other Tales from the Wild Side of Wildlife" (Basic Books, 2018). And to make sure you're paying attention, we'll ask a trivia question during the interview. Then, we'll randomly select five people who answer the trivia question correctly in the Facebook comments, and they'll win a free copy of Cooke's book!

Tune in to the interview on our Facebook page at 12:30 p.m. EDT on Tuesday (April 17). It will be a great crash course on the 13 species Cooke describes in her book: eel, beaver, sloth, hyena, vulture, bat, frog, stork, hippo, moose, panda, penguin and chimpanzee.
The contest rules are below. Don't forget to check Facebook and Twitter for updates on this contest and other live-video events.
