Bill’s in the swim with the “Animal Locomotion” episode.
Whether they crawl, fly, run, or hitch a ride, animals move around. Animals move to get food, to escape from being another animal’s food, to find mates, to find a home, and to just plain survive. Animals have developed all sorts of different ways to get their rears in gear.
Some animals have wings that let them fly and hover. Other animals have legs, from two to more than 200, to get them walking, galloping, or running. Some animals’ legs are really pumped-up for powerful jumps. Animals also strut, stroll, slither, swim, slime, sprint and squeeze their way around.
So get moving to your TV to watch the “Animal Locomotion” episode. It will get your mind racing… with science.
