Places to Learn More About The Animals In The Books You Read

Ever read a book about giraffes, hippos or okapis and wanted to learn more about them?
Where do they live?
What do they eat?
How big are they really?
Here are a few places you can go to learn all kinds of interesting facts about animals:

The Ultimate Ungulate
This site is all about hoofed animals. Anything you want to know about a giraffe, kudu or bongo you can find here.

Animal Diversity Web
This site is for older children and has information you can use even if you're in college. Learn about any type of animal in very good scientific terms. Great for when your child has a report they have to write.

Connected to the TV channel, this site is filled with all kinds of cool stuff.

Animal Games
For the younger set. Fun games to learn about your favorite animals. Devided into mammals, fish, birds, reptiles and insects. Have fun playing game 12 under mammals.
