We spent part of our school day at Hogle Zoo learning about ANIMAL ADAPTATIONS! We even got to see and feel snow leopard fur and a few live animals.
Did you know that...
Predators eyes tend to be forward-facing to give them better depth perception?
Prey have eyes set more to the side to give them a wider range of vision (so they can avoid predators)?
Elephants can reach higher than giraffes so that they have the pick of the most tender top leaves?
Elephants use mud as sunscreen and bug repellent?
