I never knew what the fossa was until today, when my mom found out that the Denver zoo has free days in November. On the zoo's website,we saw a picture of a fossa, and looked up what it was related to. It looked a bit like a fox, but it's actually related to cats.

Not very many people know about the tapir, so I decided to do a post about it. Are you one of those people? Well, it has a small trunk, the adults are dark brown, they have four toes on their front feet, and three toes on the back feet.

Did you think that we'll never know what color the dinosaurs were? Think again! Scientists have found preserved pigment in fossilized skin from an ancient leatherback turtle,a mosasaur, and an ichthyosaur.[Okay, THOSE ancient animals are not dinosaurs but the time is close!] We now think that they were black and the leatherback had white bellies.
