Animal Facts: National Geographic

Do you ever wonder about the Cane Toad? How about the Wart Newt? Or maybe you’re more fascinated by the Caroline Wren or the Tundra Swan. Whatever your proclivities, this enormously informative site from National Geographic will delight and edify. The Animal Facts are categorized by Amphibians, Birds, Bugs, Fish, Invertebrates, Mammals, Prehistoric, and Reptiles. Within each category there are at least a dozen (and usually more) individual animals to explore. For instance, if you opt for the camel spider you will find that this six-inch desert insect (technically a solpugid) can run 10 miles per hour and that it preys on insects, rodents, lizards, and small birds.
