Did you know - 
  • Polar Bears have a thick layer of fat, their black skin which absorbs sunlight, a layer of fur, and their hollow, reflective longer hairs which all combine to make them extremely well insulated  so much so, they are almost invisible to infra-red photography!
  • When they are attacked by a hungry neighbor, Blue-Tongued Skinks are able to stick out their blue tongue, puff up their body to make it look larger, hiss, and if these things do not work, they let their tails come off, so they are able to escape  they then grow a new tail!
  • Hairy Armadillos have a special membrane in their nose which allows them to breathe oxygen surrounding grains of dirt/sand when they are digging without getting dirt/sand in their noses.
  • Psychedelic Frogfish are fish, so you may think they move by swimming  but they do not. They either use their fins to walk along the bottom of the sea, or they use their fins to push themselves off the sea floor/coral, and then shoot air through their gills to bounce  yes, bounce, along the bottom of the sea! 
  • Opossums have one more surprise  they glow bio-fluorescent hot pink! Yes! They glow bio-fluorescent hot pink! No one knows why.
  • When a male Amazon Pink River Dolphin wants to get the attention of a female, he holds sticks or even live turtles out of the water!
  • Sunfish are called by many names  Moonfish, Mola, Germans call them schwimmender kopf, which means swimming head”, Polish call them samogłów, which means lonely head, and in Taiwanese it means the fish which looks like a car toppled over. Well, they are odd-looking fish! 
  • While they are not very big, Numbats have an excellent sense of hearing  they are able to hear where termites are crawling in the dirt, so they know exactly where to dig.
In Polar Bears, Purple Gallinules, Numbats & More! the children you love will be able to learn so many fun, surprising, and interesting things about animals, participate in activities they will never forget, and you will have the opportunity to engage them in important conversations about how these incredible animals help them know God is real!
