Kids can browse the stunning gallery of animals to see each animal’s profile page, featuring multimedia and quick facts about the animal's habitat, size, diet, lifespan, and conservation status along with fun facts, such as a honey bee's “waggle dance” and why the color of the moon jellyfish can be orange, pink, or purple.
