Learning about Creepy Crawly Animals

We learned about creepy crawly animals by having two video conferences with the Texas Wildlife Association. We saw four different animals live and up close: snakes, rats, scorpions, and bats. These creepy crawlers aren’t as scary as people think they really are.  Here are some of our favourite pictures!

Here you can listen to us talk about our learning:

    Dear Makayla,
    I was thinking about your question and my guess is that they may not be too long but are pointy and sharp. So then I did a little research and found out that rats don’t don’t lose their first set of teeth like us and many mammals. So rats only have one set of teeth in their entire life! Their front teeth are called incisors and they continue to grow throughout their whole life. I learned that it is very important for rats to gnaw on their food so that their teeth don’t get too long. Click on the link I found to find out more information about rat’s teeth.

    1. Thank you for your comment. We looked at the link and we were surprised about how long a rats tooth can get! After seeing the link we have a lot more questions about rats. We are going to research to learn more.
