water happened at Martinque, France. The seaplane was flown
by its inventor, Henri Fabre. A powerful engine powered the first flight.
The first flight went about 600 meters. The name of the plane was
"Le Canard". It means 'duck'. On Jan. 26th, 1911, Glenn Curtiss made

into orbit. The massive rocket lifted off the Cape Canaveral launch
pad at 5:58pm EST. The giant rocket is called a Delta Heavy Rocket.

Ancient Florida

24,000 years ago Florida was much bigger than today.
The coasts were jungle and mangrove swamps. There were
great forests of trees. In the interior, the weather was drier.
Great rivers flowed from the center of Florida to the coasts.

All the plants in this picture are mangrove.
There are four different types of mangrove in this picture.
Mangrove plants like a mix of sea water and fresh water.
This is known as brackish water.
The birds in the picture are Ospreys...
I have a question.
Yes, please go ahead.
Are you sure those are Ospreys?
Yes, I am. Why don't you think they are?
Because an Osprey has a black patch on its eyes.
What do you think?

What's the difference between an alligator and a crocodile?

Do you know the difference between a croc and a gator?
Let's look at this picture below.
What are these?
These are animal skulls.
Which is the croc?
The crocs' head is pointed.
So the skull on the right is the croc.
Head shape is not the only difference.
What are some other differences?
Where was this picture taken? It was in the Everglades.
Alligator can tolerate cold weather better than a crocodile.
Crocs live only on the southern tip of Florida.
Alligators can be found throughout Florida.

What else is different?
Alligators prefer fresh water.
The crocodile likes to live in brackish or salt water.

I hoped you liked this.
If you have any questions about these animals,
please contact me.

Can you tell the difference?
Is this a gator or a croc?

Have a Great Day!!!
