October Quest-Animals That Scare Us!

A lot of people have at least one animal that makes us nervous-and that's ok! But a lot of times, when we take a closer look at these animals, we find things that make them interesting and unique, and discover why they're important to our ecosystem. For 5,000 points this month, choose an animal that you're not so sure about, and learn a little more about them. Find out why, even though you may be nervous to get near them, we can still appreciate them! Bring in what you find to Nature Swap, or email it to natureswap@rwpzoo.org. Does nothing scare you? Then help a family member research an animal that scares them, or pick an animal you don't know a lot about!
