Polar Bears

Polar bear cubs stay near their mother for warmth. The cubs themselves have thick coats of fur and layers of fat to keep them warm. A pregnant female will dig a den in the fall, then stay there until her cubs are born and ready to leave the den (at bottom). The mother will protect and nurse the cubs for about two and a half years.

Emerald Tree Boas

Emerald tree boas can grow as long as 8 feet (2.4 meters)! They live in tropical rain forests, where they coil up on tree branches. They kill their prey by squeezing it to death; then they open their jaws wide to swallow the prey whole (lower left). These boas are covered in bright green scales with white or yellow blotches (lower right).

Monarch Butterflies

Every year, when the weather turns chilly, millions of monarch butterflies travel hundreds of miles to spend the winter in warmer places. In the spring they return, laying eggs along the way. The eggs develop into caterpillars that spin cocoons and then emerge as adult butterflies (at bottom).

Cheetahs

The cheetah is the fastest mammal on land. It can run up to 60 miles an hour (100 kilometers an hour)! Nonretractable claws that lack a protective covering (lower right) help the cheetah make sharp turns at high speeds. Cheetahs also have very good eyesight and can see hidden prey (lower left).

Chimpanzees

Chimpanzees are humansí closest relatives. They live in Africa, where they spend a lot of time on the ground, although they also climb among the trees. A chimpís hands and feet (lower left) can easily grip branches and objects. Chimps communicate with each other by vocalizing (lower right).

Nile Crocodiles

Female Nile crocodiles may put baby crocs in their mouth if there is danger nearby. Crocodile parents sometimes help their babies hatch (lower left) by gently rolling the eggs in their mouth to crack the shells. Crocs have eyes high on their heads so that they can see above the surface of the water when they are submerged (lower right).

Dugongs

The dugong may look like a cross between a walrus and a seal, but it is actually related to the elephant. Dugongs are marine mammals and close relatives of manatees. Dugongs can weigh more than 900 pounds (408 kilograms), and they eat about 66 pounds (33 kilograms) of food a day!

Bottlenose Dolphins

Bottlenose dolphins live together in groups of about a dozen animals. They often hunt together for fish, squid, and shrimp. To locate prey, the dolphins make sounds that bounce off objects. They determine an objectís location by the reflected sound (at bottom).
