A-Z Challenge – L

L – Lemurs

Did you know lemurs have two tongues? Their second tongue is called an “under-tongue” and extends below the tip of their main tongue! It is used like a toothbrush to remove hair and debris from their toothcomb (a group of front teeth used for grooming)!

A-Z Challenge – E

E – Echidnas

These unique characters were actually named after “Echidna” – a creature from Greek mythology who was renowned as the “Mother of Monsters”, believed to be a half woman, half snake. Why, you ask? Well, the animal was perceived by scientists early on to have both reptilian and mammalian features – just like their namesake.

A-Z Challenge – A

Hi All,

Well I’ve kind of retired from blogging but I’ve never done this challenge so I thought – why not.  My theme is photographs of animals, so let us begin.

A – African Wild Dog

Wild dogs can run more than 44 miles per hour and roam across large areas of more than 770 square miles.  They stick closer to their dens when caring for a litter of pups.
