It’s World Crocodile Day!
Do you know which one is the crocodile and which one is the alligator? Here`s how to tell the difference: When a gator closes its mouth, only its upper teeth show. When a croc`s mouth is closed, you see the lower teeth, too. 🐊

Did you know one of the most affectionate animal dads around is a silverback gorilla? 🦍 Male gorillas have a reputation for being tough and fierce. But they can also be gentle, patient, and kind to the littlest members of their families. Gorilla dads often pick up their babies just to snuggle or play. And young gorillas spend a lot of time hanging out with Dad, as this one is doing!

Watch a mama poppy bee make one of her special nurseries that’s “wallpapered” with bits of petals from a poppy flower! #TooCuteTuesday Wonder why poppy bees do this? Scientists think that the petals protect the egg and food supply. But is there something special about poppy petals that makes the bees pick them more than others? No one is sure. What IS for sure is that the insect and the flower make fantastic partners!

➡️ Don’t “rescue” a box turtle by taking it to a new place. Box turtles know only their own home areas, which are very small.
➡️ Never keep a box turtle as a pet. Too many have been collected and sold as pets, and there are fewer in the wild than there once were.
Today is #WorldTurtleDay! 🐢 Shell-ebrate by learning more ways you can be a box turtle’s best friend: https://rangerrick.org/ranger_rick/box-turtle/

Have you heard the buzz? It’s World Bee Day! 🐝
Flowers need bees. Without bees to pollinate them, many flowers couldn’t make seeds or fruit. And bees need flowers. Without the flowers’ nectar and pollen, the bees would have nothing to eat. But bees need something else, too: a cozy home for raising their young. That’s where YOU come in! Build a bee house and you can “bee” sure they’ll thank you!

Sunday is Mother`s Day, so we thought you`d enjoy this throwback to our May 1992 issue!
With her rough tongue, this African lion mother is cleaning her cub’s fur. 🦁 The cub is doing its best to remain standing, but lion cubs usually lie down when they’re being groomed. That way they won’t get knocked off their feet by their hard-licking mom! (📷 photo by Martin W. Grosnick) #ThrowbackThursday

Bighorn sheep butt heads to decide who’s boss. The rams crash their heavy horns together again and again until one gives up and walks away. A head-butting match can last an entire day. Catch a glimpse!
