Reticulated Glass Frog

Reticulated glass frogs have translucent undersides which make their internal organs visible when looking at them from below. Scientists don’t know the reason for the glass frog’s clear belly, but they do have ideas on the purpose of the pattern on its back. Reticulated glass frogs’ backs have a pattern that resembles their clusters of...

Red-Eyed Tree Frog

Red eyed tree frogs lay their eggs on leaves above ponds and when the tadpoles hatch they drop into the water. They live in the water until they develop into little brown frogs at which point they move to land. Once they reach adulthood, their color changes to bright green with orange feet and blue...

Cane Toad

Cane toads are poisonous in every stage of life from egg, to tadpole, to adult. As adults, they ooze poison out of glands by the sides of their eyes and are also able to squirt it at targets like a water gun. Cane toads don’t drink water. Instead, they get all the hydration they need...

Loggerhead Sea Turtle

 Loggerhead sea turtles get their names because of their oversized heads which some say resemble tree logs. Loggerhead’s have a much longer migration route between their breeding nests and feeding grounds. Female sea turtles travel over 7,457 miles (12,000km) to lay eggs at the same beach where they hatched.

Leatherback Sea Turtle

Leatherback sea turtles are the largest turtles on the planet. They get their names because unlike other sea turtles whose shells are hard, the leatherback sea turtle’s shell feels leathery and rubbery. Leatherback sea turtles lay their eggs in the sand and as soon as the babies are hatched they instinctively know to go into...

Green Sea Turtle

They have long migrations from their feeding to nesting sites and have been recorded to travel over 1,615 miles (2,600km). When females arrive at their breeding sites they lay between 75...

Gila Monster

Gila Monsters were named after the Arizona Gila River Basin, which is where they were first discovered. Their bright colored splotches are meant to ward predators off by showing that they are poisonous. Gila monsters store fat in their tails which allows them to go for long times without eating.


Geckos have hairlike structures on their toes that bond to any surface they step on. This allows them to run across tree branches and even crawl up walls and across ceilings. Geckos are one of very few types of lizards to have a voice and sound a little bit like a croaking frog or bird.

Galápagos Tortoise

The Galápagos tortoise is the biggest tortoise in the world. The largest Galápagos tortoise ever recorded was 6 feet (1.83m) long and weighed 919 lbs (416.85kg). Galápagos tortoises don’t eat much and their metabolisms are so slow that they can go a year without food.

American Alligator

 American alligators are a little clumsy on land but they’re great swimmers. Their webbed feet and strong tails help propel them in the water at speeds up to 20 miles (3.19km) per hour. The heat of an alligator’s nest determines whether that alligator’s offspring will be male or female with hotter nests resulting in males...

Letter from Haibu

Welcome to the wide world of me, Haibu! I’m so happy you found your way to my site - it’s always fun meeting new people. In fact, I’ve met a lot of new people in the past couple of years.

My best friend, Kanuux and I met on my crazy adventure in New York. He’s technically a seal but he’s a person in my mind. That might be because I can speak to animals like they’re people.

I met pretty much all the orphans at the Barrington House Orphanage in New York City but grew very close with Scotty, Olli, and Zeek. They’re always up for helping me help the animals but that’s only part of why I love them with my whole heart. They’re funny, courageous, empathetic, and my goodness I just appreciate them so much.

They helped me rescue Wiz, Eron, Bishop, and a bunch of other animals from a trafficking ship so now all of those animals are our friends too!

The connections that I have with my friends, both the animal and human kind, have helped me see the world with fresh eyes. I’ve seen the unique struggles and pain they’ve been through without losing love or hope in their hearts. I know that humans are all capable of love and getting along if we just take the time to listen to each other without judgment.

Everyone has a story, and everyone should feel safe sharing it. My friendships have shown me the potential our world has and that’s what I strive to make happen in my lifetime – animals and humans are meant to thrive together.

I hope we can be friends too and you can help me make this world a better place. If you haven’t checked out the world with all the fun animal content on the home page yet, get on it!
