I Am A Wild One
Grade 3A students would like to share the information that was provided by the New York Zoos and Aquarium website about their “wild self” animal characteristics. Each child designed his/her wild self and has taken that name as their Class Blogmeister user name. Welcome to the world of blogging!
African Lion mane - Looking good! Male African lions use their thick, dark manes to attract mates.
Polar bear ears -It gets cold in the Arctic (down to 35°F below). For warmth, your polar bear ears are small and covered in fur—even on the inside. When diving, the ears close to keep cold water out.
Fossa Snout - Even though you have fearsome fossa teeth and look like cat, you're actually a relative of the mongoose family and unique to the forests of Madagascar.
Siberian tiger paws - It's no fun getting stuck in the snow. That's why your Siberian tiger paws are extra large. They work just like snowshoes and prevent you from sinking.
African lion legs - Your African lion legs are extremely powerful and have long, retractable claws to help you bring down prey. Careful not to poke your eye out with those things!
Lesser bird of paradise wings - Your beautiful and elegant wings are from a bird of paradise. Most birds of paradise live in Papua New Guinea, where they're so revered the nation's flag bears their likeness.
Spiny Tailed Iguana Tail - During the day your lizard lounge is a tree branch. But at night you can retreat into a hole in the tree bark and use your spiny tail to block the entrance. That's one serious home security system!
