My Wild Self



Reindeer antlers - Your reindeer antlers won't stick around for long. Every year reindeer shed their antlers in the spring and summer. But don't worry, they grow back.

Polar bear ears -It gets cold in the Arctic (down to 35°F below). For warmth, your polar bear ears are small and covered in fur—even on the inside. When diving, the ears close to keep cold water out.

Anaconda snake tongue - Now you can smell with your tongue! Your forked anaconda tongue collects odor molecules from the air and brings them back to tiny grooves in the roof of your mouth, letting you "taste" the air.

Gibbon arms - Your Gibbon arms are designed especially for swinging in trees. With these arms you can jump distances of over 20 feet from branch to branch.

California condor wings - Your California condor wings are the biggest wings in North America. They have a wingspan of almost ten feet.

Peacock male tail - Your peacock tail feathers can grow to be 60 inches long. Each feather has what looks like an eye on it. They help scare away other animals that might want to eat you.


This week we have been learning about adaptations.
