Chameleon

Did you know? Chameleons change colors to send messages to each other, such as “I’m angry!” or to help control their temperature.
 


Quokka

Did you know? Quokkas are very rare. To have the best chance of seeing one, you need to visit an island called Rottnest, west of Australia.
 

Kiwi

Did you know? Kiwis hunt at night. Their eyesight is poor, so they find creepy-crawlies to eat by smell and feel. Unusually, a kiwi's nostrils are at the tip of its bill, which it keeps poking into the earth as it walks to sniff out food.
 

Moose

Did you know? Male moose’s antlers grow in summer and then drop off again in winter. Each year a moose’s antlers can grow to weigh more than 44 lbs. That’s like it carrying a large border collie on its head!
 


Seadragon

Did you know? Seadragons are some of the strangest fish in the sea. The leafy seadragon in particular looks more like seaweed than a fish. It has flaps of skin that make wavy branches, helping to disguise it.
