What would you say these animals are—raccoons, or panda bears?
This July, these two tiny animals (on the left and right) were born at the Brooklyn Zoo in New York. They look like raccoons, but they’re actually red pandas.
Red pandas come from Asia. The red and white marks on their bodies help them blend in with the moss on trees. Their long tails help them balance. Their soft fur covers every part of them—even the bottoms of their feet. Very few red pandas still exist in the wild.
These baby pandas just made their first public appearance at the Prospect Park Zoo. Everyone is waiting to hear: What will their names be?
What would you call them?
Maximillian Lu is only 10 years old. He is the youngest ever chess master in the United States!
Max started playing chess at the age of six in an afterschool program. Since then, he has competed in tournaments in Toronto, South Africa and Dubai. This month he represented the United States in Greece.
In order to keep his mind sharp, Max plays chess 45 minutes every day. On the weekends, he plays for an hour or two. But he doesn’t do it just to win. He does it because he loves chess. Congratulations, Max!
Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men. — Colossians 3:23
What animal would you not want to be this Thursday? How about a turkey?
Terry Branstad is the governor of Iowa. Every year, he saves two turkeys from becoming the star of the Thanksgiving meal. He said this year has been especially hard for turkeys. In 2015, the bird flu affected about a quarter of turkey operations in Iowa.
Governor Branstad released a male and female turkey. Turkeys Spike and Zoe are headed to a new home at a farm. They sure have something to be thankful for this year!
Give thanks in all circumstances. — 1 Thessalonians 5:18
Will you think this is good news or bad news? It all depends on whether you like rattlesnakes!
Last week, scientists made an announcement. They believe they have discovered what is making rattlesnakes in the United States sick. Until recently, it was a big mystery.
The scientists blame the sickness on a fungus. The fungus makes snakes act unusually. The snakes become easier prey for predators.
Knowing what causes the sickness may put the snakes in less danger. Will scientists be able to save them in time?
