Would an Elephant Really be Afraid of a Mouse?

Question: Are elephants really afraid of mice?

Answer: No, they are not.  Compared to the size of an elephant, a mouse is so small, that chances are the elephant wouldn’t even have a clue that there was a mouse near by.

Has Anyone Seen my Little Brother?

My mom was in such a hurry to get home from the veterinarian’s office to watch Dancing with the Stars, that when we got home, pulled into our driveway -my mom jumped out the car, opened the passenger door to unbuckle my little brother and this is what she found!  

Unfortunately for my brother the Vet is closed for the weekend and we’re going to have to wait until Monday to get him back..  Let’s just hope they gave him some fresh water and something to chew on.

Frogs…

 

Goliath frog of Cameroon

There are close to 4,000 different kinds of frogs, including toads. They range in size from less than half an inch to nearly a foot long and come in a rainbow of colors and patterns.

Adult frogs are carnivorous and will eat just about anything smaller than themselves, including insects, worms and even other frogs.

A frog’s long, sticky tongue is attached in the front of its mouth and can flick its tongue out to capture its prey with remarkable speed.

The biggest frog is the appropriately named Goliath frog of Cameroon. They reach nearly a foot and weigh as much as 7 pounds. The smallest frog is the Gold frog of Brazil.  They grow to only 3/8 inch.

Recently scientists have noticed a marked decline in the numbers of frogs and other amphibians around the world. Some species are believed to have become extinct within the past fifty years. Causes for the decline include ozone depletion, pollution, habitat loss, introduction of new predators, disease and even a fungus.
