EMPORER PENGUIN CHICK
Until it can find its own food, an emperor penguin chick is fed about 185 pounds of regurgitated seafood—about 92 pounds from each parent.
The fluid-filled sacs around its eyes are so big and heavy that this fish can barely lift its head. Or be happy you are not a mola, which can be as large as a small truck.
A hippo's sweat is red, which could be very embarrassing.
You'd be extinct!
Dung beetles roll dung balls, make tunnels under dung balls, or live in dung. And each of these beetles eats the tiny nutritious bits left behind in the dung!
Both male and female cicadas have a short adult life. They die after about two-to-six weeks above ground.
An eagle can spot these hares from more than a mile (1.6 kilometers) away.
Every year, the North American monarch butterfly may fly all the way from Canada to Mexico, more than 2,000 miles (3,200 kilometers) away!
