tree frogs at night

Red-eyed tree frogs live in the tops of trees. They are very busy at night. These frogs hunt in the dark. Their long tongues help them quickly snatch a bug. Special toes help them climb branches and stick to leaves. A red-eyed tree frog is as long as your thumb. Red-eyed tree frogs can smell things very well. Red-eyed tree frogs call to each other during rainy summer nights. This helps them find each other in the leaves. One of the frog’s calls sounds like a baby rattle. The babies, called tadpoles, look like fish and live in water. Daytime means bedtime for red-eyed tree frogs. They tuck in their colorful feet and sleep on green leaves. Now other animals can’t see them. A young red-eyed tree frog is called a froglet. It is getting dark. Time to wake…

foxes in the desert

Fennec foxes live in hot, sandy deserts. Their ears and paws help them survive. Fur covers the bottom of the fox’s paws. That protects its feet from hot sand. A fennec fox’s ears are longer than your hand. How long are your ears? Fennec foxes bark, squeak, growl, howl, and chatter. Heat from the fox leaves its body through its tall ears. That helps the fox stay cool. Their fur color helps them hide in the sand. Fennec fox families stay cool inside their den during hot parts of the day. Its ears and paws also help the fox hunt. It listens for insects crawling under the sand and uses all four paws to dig. TIERFOTOAGENTUR / ALAMY (BIG IMAGE); GER BOSMA / ALAMY (PAWS)…

why do we see a rainbow?

Rainbows are sunlight and water. When it has just rained, or is about to rain, there are billions of water droplets in the air. When sunlight hits the droplets, the light separates and we see all the colors of light. The colors of sunlight are red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. The next time you are at a waterfall or a big water fountain, stand with the sun behind you and try to find a rainbow through the water spray.
