New, cool frog!

A new frog has been discovered in the part of the Andes Mountains in Ecuador. But this frog is not as ordinary as it sounds. This new frog can SHAPE-SHIFT! Although it can't shape-shift into a different animal, it's still very cool. Hear is what I mean by "shape-shift"; it can change
from having prickly skin to having smooth skin in about five minutes. To read

Actiont mammals

I'm about to go to the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, so I need to post this fast. In China, two mammal species were discovered. They lived in the Jurassic. One probably lived in trees, and the other was probably a digger. You can find out more if  you click here.*

Mystery feather

We found a feather. Here are the clues we have to it:
1) There's orange wearing off on the backside of the feather.
2) The bird that lost the feather makes a really-high pitched "cheep".
3) The feather smells like dust.

Talkative birds

My parakeets are SO talkative! As I am writing this, my parakeets are doing rapid, silent chirps. A couple minuets ago, I was doing tabata, and there was one point where they were chirping so loud that they chirped over the music. If you don't know what tabata is, it is an exercise song. But anyway, sometimes, they don't make a sound, and just sit on one of their perches looking at me as if there're thinking, " What are you doing here? Don't you have more important things to do than watch us?" They are just so funny.
