Do you adore animals? Maybe you can’t get enough of cuddly puppies or playful kittens. Perhaps another type of animal intrigues you as well, like lions, tigers, and bears — oh my! If you sit back and wonder why ostriches bury their heads in the sand, what koalas do all day, or how strong a crocodile’s mouth is, then you came to the right place.

Get ready to travel through the oceans, safaris, desert plains, and right back to the fleas on your dog because you are going to learn some amazing facts about animals that you probably never knew!
