  May 2015 Edition: Frogs VS Toads
FrogsVToads 2

Can you tell the difference between a frog and a toad? Let's put these two species of amphibians into an ultimate battle of comparisons! Frogs and toads may look similar but there are many variations between them! In this article we will discover the many differences and even some similarities between frogs and toads!

Frogs and toads are classified under the same Order within the animal kingdom; Anura. Under that Order frogs are considered "True Frogs" in the Family Ranidea. Toads are in the Family of Bufonidae and are considered "True Toads". But they are both similar in that they first hatched from eggs that are laid in water.

One of the biggest differences that make it easy to distinguish a frog from a toad is what thier skin looks like. A frog tends to have moist and smooth skin while toads have dry, bumpy, and usually warty skin. Don't fret, you cannot get warts from touching a toad!

May 2014: A Salute To Moms Of All Species!
MomsOfNatureOn Sunday May 10th, all sorts of mothers will be opening Mother's Day cards and presents. Well, not quite all sorts. Animal mothers deserve some recognition on this maternal holiday, too, so here are a few of the top animal moms that go all out for their kids, from putting "dinner" on the table every night to making daily sacrifices.

The first mom on our list is the mother Elephant. She earns her spot for giving birth to the biggest babies on Earth — we're talking an average of 200 pounds! Can you imagine a diaper that large? Female elephants also deserve a prize for enduring a 22-month pregnancy. The calves are initially born blind, forcing them to rely on their trunks for navigation and discovery, but fortunately, they live in a matriarchal society. Once the baby is born, the other "ladies" in the herd all lend a hand, including grandmothers, sisters, aunts and even cousins. These full-time baby-sitters are called "Allomothers", and they help in every aspect of rearing the young calves — so in this case, it really does take a village to raise an elephant!
