  • Wolverine

    Though sometimes referred to as "skunk bears", wolverines are actually the largest members of the weasel family. With strong jaws, they are well-equipped to chew through frozen meat and bones.

  • Chameleon

    While they can make small color adjustments to blend in to their background, usually, chameleons change color to reflect their moods, defend their territory or attract mates.

  • Snow Leopard

    The snow leopard is a solitary, elusive big cat that lives in the harsh, rugged mountains of central Asia. They have the densest fur of all big cats, which helps them stay warm in temperatures as low as -40°C!

  • Arctic Fox

    For the arctic fox, staying warm in the frigid arctic tundra, in temperatures as low as -50°C, means having dense fur, a nice thick layer of fat, and a compact body to retain heat.

  • Seahorse

    When you think of a fish, a seahorse might not be the first thing that comes to mind. Its head looks like a horse’s head. It swims upright. It is covered in bony plates instead of scales. But a seahorse is a kind of fish, in the same family as pipefish and seadragons.
