Some animals are really amazing! Polar bears are. These bears live in a really cold place. Polar bears have black skin. It soaks up the sun’s light to keep them warm. Polar bears can smell really well. They can smell their favorite food up to 16 kilometers away!
Camels live in desert areas. They can carry half their body weight for long distances. They can go for a week without drinking water. When they drink, they can drink 200 liters of water in just a few minutes.
What can polar bears do really well?

Matt: I know! Think about camels.
Matt: Yes. They can carry half their body weight for long distances.
Megan: I knew that. And they don’t need to drink water every day.
Matt: That’s right. But when they do, they can drink 200 liters of water in just a few minutes.
Megan: That is amazing!
