When you go to clean your room, you probably get everything out and put like items together in the same space: all my socks go here, all my books go here, and so on. Zoologists do the same thing, but they break it down into even smaller pieces: all my red socks go here, all my toeless socks go here (just kidding!), and so on. While they sort, they find some pretty wild types of animals with strange characteristics: glowing turtles, fish without eyes, fish with legs, transparent frogs. Join us as we explore the wildlife of the world and learn how scientists organize and classification animal species. We’ll learn about the Latin binomial system of naming animals and how dichotomous keys are read and made. It will be a safari adventure!
