Fun facts about Noah’s Ark
God judged the world with the Flood, saving Noah and his family, about 4,300 years ago. (from 2349 to 2348 BC)
Noah and his family were on the Ark for over a year.
There was plenty of room on the Ark for all the animals that God brought to Noah before the Flood. And there was still enough room for all the food they would need (Genesis 6:21).
They possibly ate hay, dried plants, seeds, grains, and maybe even dried meat.
