•Petra Bartíková Marcel Králik

With four webbed feet and
a muscular tail to use as
a rudder, the otter is as
at-home in the water as it
is on land. It can dive, swim,
run, and climb with ease!

and a hard shell, and it

walks backward.

like fish, live only in the water. They

can‘t breathe on dry land.
Look at the bear feed itself

a grab for it. Dinner-time!

Newts and salamanders look like
lizards but they‘re very different!
