Amphibians are some of the most interesting animals in the world. When I was growing up, it fascinated me to no end that amphibians could breathe both air and water (by utilizing the atomic particles present in both, of course). To me, that versatility was one of the most incredible things out there. It made me wonder how skin could be constructed as permeable to moisture, how amazing that principle was, and how delicate the animals were as a result. Reptiles, on the other hand, are also quite fascinating in their own right. How interesting is it to teach children about how an animal’s home lies on its back? What about how an animal has to rely on external sources to keep it’s body temperature regulated, or how a snake is capable of discarding its skin?
Many of these facts are present on the Amphibians and Reptiles poster, providing full color images of some of the most interesting animals on the planet. The poster recalls familiar science-themed imagery from the classrooms of our youth, and is laminated for extra durability since it’s probably going to get touched a lot. But it could be a great wall accessory for any young ones who are already fascinated by the animal kingdom and are less interested in the typical decorations their peers might have in their rooms. So encourage your child’s curiosity with nature, or perhaps start them down that road with a cool poster that educates like this one. Perhaps they’ll even end up with the increasingly rare ability to recall facts about these animals rather than needing a device to find the information.
