Blue Morpho Butterfly

Blue Morpho Butterfly

What insect can fly while flapping it’s beautiful identical wings?

If you guessed the Blue Morpho Butterfly, you’re correct.  It is a very beautiful creature. 

The Blue Morpho Butterfly has the exact same pattern on each wing, just like every other Butterfly.

Surprisingly, the pretty blue color on the Blue Morpho Butterflies wings is not actually blue.  The light reflects off the actual brown scales making it look blue.

The Blue Morpho Butterfly is a beautiful creature, what would you do if you spotted one.  Please tell me in a comment.

 

Sloths

 

Do you know the slowest animal in the world?

If you guessed the Sloth, you’re correct.  One of the cutest animals also happens to be the Sloth in my opinion. 

One of the types of Sloth that lives in the Amazon Rainforest is, the Three Toed Sloth.

Sloths may be really slow, but are surprisingly excellent swimmers.  

Sloths matter a lot to the Tropical Rainforest, like the Amazon Rainforest because they are an important part to it’s ecosystem.  

What do you think it would be like to hold a Sloth?  Please tell me in a comment.
