What Maine animal has thumbs on its front and back feet? What animal disguises itself as bird poop? This week we will celebrate all the wonderfully weird adaptations that help wildlife survive!

Whether they have six legs, eight legs, or no legs at all, this week is all about the creatures we call “bugs!” We’ll look high, low (and even underwater) for bugs to observe, and will learn about the important ecological roles they play in the habitats around us.
