 at speeds of 3-7 miles per hour. It can swim as fast
as 22 miles per hour for short distances.

Slow and beautiful, the lionfish is one coral
 reef animal you do not want to cuddle.
While their colorful stripes and long fins
 make them favorites, the lionfish's spines
are loaded with venom. An injection of venom
from a lionfish can be deadly and will always
make you very sick.

Sharks ruled the oceans even before dinosaurs
roamed the land. They have been around for

Sharks have a lifetime supply of teeth.

Worldwide, few people are attacked in an
average year by sharks.

       The Gobi Desert is located in
       Mongolia, China. It is considered
       a cold desert. It was named
       Gobi because of all of the small
       stones called “gobies” located

       Many animals are also found

       the Gobi Desert,.
Believe it or not, the average
rain fall in the Antarctic is less
than 2 inches annually. This
desert doesn’t experience a lot
of evaporation, so all of the
snow that falls stays for
hundreds of years!

It is the coldest and windiest
desert, but some plants like
algae will grow there!

Located in southwestern Arizona
and southwestern California, this
Desert is over 120,00 square
It is the hottest desert in North
In the western part of the desert,
seasonal storms allow for
flowering plants. It’s a
phenomenon that is not
limited to this desert, but occurs
in other deserts as well!
