BIBLE VERSES

Psalm 50:10  For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills.

Job 39:1  Do you watch when the doe bears her fawn?

DID YOU KNOW:  God asks Job, “Do you watch when the doe bears her fawn?” The egg cell of a baby deer may be fertilised in summer, but may barely grow for several months, until the middle of winter, when it starts to grow normally. This incredible delay mechanism causes the baby deer to come into the world at exactly the right time—just when the meadows are in full bloom.

FOREST / WOODLAND ANIMALS ~ INFORMATION FOR KIDS ~ FREE PRINTABLE (A4)

Colugo – FREE article for kids  (Paper Gifts for Estefany) this fascinating flying mammal gives glory to God as Creator; also available in French; free printable

Colugo article for kids; pink, green and yellow fleuro background; free printable

Why does Mother Deer hide her new Baby Fawn in the Flowers?  (creation.com) If you should stumble across this small yet wonderful bundle of life, a tiny baby deer lying curled up in a meadow, please act like Moses confronted with the burning bush. Not that you need to remove your shoes, but you should stop in your tracks immediately and watch it silently from a distance. Any further approach would mean danger for this little one, and a tenderly meant touch would actually be its death sentence!

Squirrels!  (creation.com) Walking along a leafy forest trail, my students and I paused to look up at a particularly large tree. What happened next left the kids in awe. A little bug-eyed southern flying squirrel (Glaucomys volans) peered out from one of the cavities and proceeded to climb to the top of the tree. With one mighty push of his legs he launched himself into space. Gliding through the air he soared approximately 10 m (33 ft), using his tail as a rudder, twisting and turning to maneuver around branches. Fleshy foot pads cushioned his impact and sharp claws allowed him to cling to the tree. And, just as suddenly as he appeared, he was gone… Everything about squirrels—their origin, their abilities in the tree tops and on the ground, their capacity to occupy places of extreme heat and cold—speak of creation; from scientists who take the Bible seriously

Raccoons – fun facts for kids  (answersingenesis) The raccoon is one of the most easily recognized wild mammals in North America, with its grayish-brown fur, black mask-like markings around its face, and dark rings around its tail; from scientists who take the Bible seriously

Skunks – fun facts for kids  (answersingenesis) The fluid of the skunk, from the two glands near the base of the tail, has been used as a basis for many perfumes. A skunk can spray up to 10–20 ft (3–6 m); from scientists who take the Bible seriously

Skunks – fun facts for kids  (answersingenesis) The skunk warns its enemy by pounding its front paws on the ground. If that doesn’t work, it turns backwards and sprays a fine mist very accurately up to 12 feet (3.7 m). It can produce this spray up to eight times during an encounter. The spray can cause temporary blindness, and the odor can be detected a half-mile (805 m) away. A predator who is unfortunate enough to be sprayed by the skunk immediately backs off. The offensive scent lingers for weeks as a potent reminder to leave that particular prey alone; from scientists who take the Bible seriously

Skunks – armed and dangerous!  (answersingenesis) from scientists who take the Bible seriously; Cute and curious, the skunk has the ability to charm people with its playful antics and yet intimidate them into hasty retreat with its potent threat. It is one of the most distinctive animals in the world, both in appearance and in, well, other ways. So what makes the skunk’s abilities so special?

Rabbit – fun facts for kids  (answersingenesis) The eyes of the rabbit are placed in the perfect spot to allow them to see almost in a complete circle; from scientists who take the Bible seriously

Bears across the world  (creation.com) They seem cute when young. And cranky when they’re older … but bears are some of God’s most amazing creatures; from scientists who take the Bible seriously

Pizzly or Grolar Bear?  (answersingenesis) If you’ve heard of zonkeys, ligers, or wholphins before, then you’re aware of some of the interesting animal “hybrids” that exist in nature or captivity. For creationists, these hybrids remind us of the original created kinds of Genesis 1; from scientists who take the Bible seriously

The Pizzly  (creation.com) a polar bear / grizzly bear hybrid explained by the Bible; from scientists who take the Bible seriously

Do Foxes have Magnetic Senses?  (icr.org) During winter, red foxes hunt snow-covered mice without even seeing their prey—but how? The red fox find its prey—often buried as deep as three feet beneath the snow; from scientists who take the Bible seriously

How the Arctic Fox got its Winter Coat  (answersingenesis) When winter arrives, this fox takes off his thin summer coat and puts on a luxurious new wardrobe just for the occasion; from scientists who take the Bible seriously
