Discovering animal biodiversity
Go "wild" this summer and discover biodiversity all around you, by watching animals from head to toe. Learners can get a closeup look at live animals and their amazing adaptations in all kinds of places—the zoo, science center, wildlife center, beach, park, even backyard or schoolyard.
Starting at the top, take a close look at animal mouths. We describe them with words like lip, beak, mandible, jaw and snout. Can you spot how an animal uses its mouth to eat, communicate, feed its young, build a home, and/or ward off predators?
