The SLUG

Do you ever see slime when you take a hike? If you have you are seeing a slug's trail. If you followed that "trail" of slime you would definitely come across the slug who made the slime. Slugs are a slimy mollusk. They usually live in damp areas like under rocks or in grass. They feed on soft leafy vegetation, mostly, although they must NOT eat or go near salt!

Q:     "IS A SLUG A SNAIL????"

A: a slug is not a snail but a slug resembles a snail. The two are different because first of all, a snail has a shell. DUUUUUH? Also, slugs live in gardens, unlike snails. A lot of people think slugs are snails who lost shells, but now you know that is absurd. So the next time you see a trail of slime, follow it to see what you can  find.

The Great Blue Heron

 

Around my house on the beach, I see these amazing, giant birds walking around the swamps nearby.  These herons live in areas like swamps. Adult blue herons weigh about 50 lbs. They usually eat fish, since they live near them. Like many other birds, blue herons migrate. They also have nests. Many people ask, "are great blue herons actually blue?" They are, but a very unique, yet pretty shade of blue. Whenever I see these birds I get excited. I hope you can see one too, one day!

The Deer







In my town, these cool mammals are very common. They hang around my house a lot. Male deer have antlers, and females, (or does) don't. Deer can have rabies and can spread a lot of ticks. I have seen many deers run over fences and other high things. They're amazing jumpers in other words. Although deer are cool you should not get too close, or you can get a tick. One of the most awesome things a deer can do, is hear. They can hear things from far away. They are very sensitive to people. (they get scared). Sadly, many people hunt deer for fun and food. Even though deer are everyday-animals, they still are amazing.

Not Your Regular House Cat






A lot of my friends have cats. Normal house cats! After I saw this video, I saw a kind of cat I've never seen before. It's a nyan cat.



       This video is dumb, but that's why it's funny. This cat has a body of a poptart and a head of a cat. The cat is in space, and a rainbow comes out of its behind. There are also other videos about nyan cat that you should check out, like nyan cat falls in love, and nyan cat battles. They're all so cute and funny! It's hard to believe but, the original video is literally 10 HOURS LONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  If you are interested in poptarts, computer animated cats, and rainbows take a look at this video. Click here to watch this random-yet hilarious video!

Play The Animal Way!



I found the best site all about animal games. Click here to play the games and go to the website. Along with reading, and quizzes, I also will give you fun videos and games. This game that I found is educational, cool, and plain fun. You can have adventures and learn about animals at the same time.[that is my favorite part about it.] After reading all my posts, you might want to sit back, relax, and for god sake play a computer game!!!!!!  Enjoy the games!!!!


*** is it just me, or is this dog adorable?

The Bumble Bee



    It landed on my hand. I did not know what it was. It felt fuzzy-ish. I looked around the playground in kindergarten, and saw kids running and screaming as the bees chased them.


      Ever since that day, I've always loved bumble bees. Most kids are afraid of them. I know why. Most bees have stingers, but the stings don't hurt at all compared to a wasp. Like most bees, they feed on pollen and nectar. They also live in nests. They will die if they sting only when their stinger remains inside of you. They also make honey like most bees do. They live in colonies, and work as a team. If you think about it, there is NO reason to scream when you see a bumble bee. Be their friend. [Wasps are a different story]!
