Horses have been on this earth for almost 55 million years!  There are more than 400 breeds of horse.  They live in herds run by one stallion.  Horses live on every continent except Antarctica.  The maximum top speed for a horse is 55 mph.

Tortoises are land-dwelling reptiles.  They can live up to 120 years.  While they have shells and can feel when their shell is touched, they really love being scratched and petted on their necks!  They recognize and have relationships with their owners when in captivit...

Turkeys can fly and they sleep in trees!  They can run up to 25 mph and fly as fast as 55 mph.  Turkeys have been known to have around 20 vocalizations, from gobbling to purring, although females cannot gobble.  These birds are known to be highly intelligent and social...

Did you know that snakes are found on every single continent of the world except for Antarctica?  They have internal ears, not external ones.  Snakes are carnivores and, since they do not chew, they are forced to swallow their prey whole.  Although they do not have eye...

Squirrels are such fun to me!  I love their joy for life!  These are intelligent, resourceful little creatures.  Did you know that squirrels run in zigzag patterns to escape predators?  That's a pretty successful survival strategy but that's not all they do that's smar...

Giraffes are actually one of our greatest pollinators!  As they eat, they are able to transfer pollen from tree flower to tree flower.  Although they are plant eaters, they also eat skeletons of dead animals to restore their calcium and phosphorus levels.  Did you know...

Blue Herons have always fascinated me!  They are so majestic.  They spend most of their waking time hunting which they are able to do night and day because their eyes are specially adapted for night vision as well.  They live a long time for a wild bird, up to 15 years...
