A very special kind of crocodile, according to the famous expert Shayna. Not because it is green, which is quite normal for such an animal, but - believe it or not - because of its unusual appearance: it looks like a croque-monsieur, the famous French toasted ham & cheese sandwich. A very efficient way to attract and catch its prey. Let's just add that the female - called croc-madame-codile - looks nearly the same, apart from a large "fried egg" kind of stain on its back.
A creature that has been described by Sarah, a very young zoologist. She insists on the fact that robbats do not bite anyone - they do not drink blood either, by the way - but beware of them on Halloween night, because they usually swooft swiftly on children to catch their sweets. Yes, the robbat is truly a robber. A nightmare for any kid and for all the dentists.
Half whale, half elephant, this big animal is a both marine and terrestrial species, recently observed by the young, yet great explorer Océane. The most remarkable fact about it is its propensity to "blow", like any whale, even on land. A quite refreshing shower effect for all the other animals during summer hot days.
If we refer to young entomologist Cleo, this insect has very strong maternal instincts. And a quite special ability that makes it totally apart in the animal world: it can cook the diner - or even warm up a baby bottle - inside its body. And when diner is ready, you always hear a very typical "ring" aimed to call its little ones.
This creature from outerspace, discovered by famous astro-biologist Elise, should be called "grilled squid". Because it takes too many sunbathes. And if you consider the number of stars in the whole universe, you understand the problem of this poor animal: it easily turns pink - or even red - instead of getting a nice tan. A kind of universal warning against sun-rays.
This frog is like a sponge: according to Maëliss, it can hold up to 20 times its weight in water. A capacity that allows it to survive in the driest places in the world. No wonder why it became so precious to adventurers and explorers of all kind: in the middle of the desert, it is quite hard to get a fresh orange juice, but you can easily offer yourself a squeezed sfronge.
Half kangaroo, half squirrel, the kangasquirrel is proof that Mother Nature does things well: because a kangaroo pocket is really useful when it is time to pick up as many nuts and acorns as you can, then to stock them for winter, said Emilie, an expert in forest animals.
Famous zoologist Laetitia experienced it, so she could tell you firsthand that the ouch ouch, despite a small size, has no "self defense" problem. Do not walk on it without wearing any shoes, or you will regret it for a few days (and you will also understand why it is called "ouch ouch", or sometimes "ow ow").
According to Clement, who's obviously studied a lot wild pigs, this one has a natural talent: it can "fold up itself" and take many shapes, such as a magnificent flower, or a boat, or even a Napoleon hat. A very useful ability when it needs to hide from predators. It had to be said.
Some animals, like the chameleon (able to become nearly invisible by finely changing its body color), are experts in camouflage. Well, the fluorescent mouse is not. At all. It always seems to yell "Hey I'm here !!!!" to its predators. That is probably why, as zoologist Elise supposed it, the fluorescent mouse is so often on the run.
