Story 1 - Red-Eyed Tree Frog

The red-eyed tree frog is known for its bright colors with a bright green body and red eyes. Like most frogs, it can become easy prey for common predators like snakes and alligators. However, it can easily climb a tree to get away. The frog’s outside skin is tougher than the skin covering its stomach.

Story 2 - Roufus Hummingbird

The roufus hummingbird has a straight, narrow and long beak. Its wings flap very fast. It can easily beat its small wings about 12 times per second. That is faster than any other animal. These birds are quite small. They are usually around 8 centimeters long and weigh just a few pounds.
